  • Software forensics: extending authorship analysis techniques to computer programs 

    Gray, Andrew; Sallis, Philip; MacDonell, Stephen
    The number of occurrences and severity of computer-based attacks such as viruses and worms, logic bombs, trojan horses, computer fraud, and plagiarism of code have become of increasing concern. In an attempt to better deal ...
  • A software framework for application development using ZigBee protocol 

    Savarimuthu, Bastin Tony Roy; Bruce, Morgan; Purvis, Maryam A.
    The problem with the uptake of new technologies such as ZigBee is the lack of development environments that help in faster application software development. This paper describes a software framework for application development ...
  • Software metrics data analysis—Exploring the relative performance of some commonly used modeling techniques 

    Gray, Andrew; MacDonell, Stephen
    Whilst some software measurement research has been unquestionably successful, other research has struggled to enable expected advances in project and process management. Contributing to this lack of advancement has been ...
  • Software process engineering for measurement-driven software quality programs—realism and idealism 

    MacDonell, Stephen; Gray, Andrew
    This paper brings together a set of commonsense recommendations relating to the delivery of software quality, with some emphasis on the adoption of realistic perspectives for software process/product stakeholders in the ...
  • Spatial data acquisition from motion video 

    Williams, Mark
    Geographic information systems are an important tool for the field of geocomputing. A key component of every system is the data—spatial data has traditionally been labour-intensive to collect, and hence expensive. This ...
  • Spatial databases—creative future concepts and use 

    Benwell, George L
    There is continuing pressure to develop spatial information systems. This paper develops two concepts that could emerge. The first is a new spatial paradigm—an holistic model—which is less of an abstraction from reality ...
  • Spatial isomorphism 

    Holt, Alec; MacDonell, Stephen; Benwell, George L
    This research continues with current innovative geocomputational research trends that aim to provide enhanced spatial analysis tools. The coupling of case-based reasoning (CBR) with GIS provides the focus of this paper. ...
  • Spatial-temporal adaptation in evolving fuzzy neural networks for on-line adaptive phoneme recognition 

    Kasabov, Nikola; Watts, Michael
    The paper is a study on a new class of spatial-temporal evolving fuzzy neural network systems (EFuNNs) for on-line adaptive learning, and their applications for adaptive phoneme recognition. The systems evolve through ...
  • Spatio-temporal and object visualization in rugby union 

    Moore, Antoni; Whigham, Peter A; Aldridge, Colin H; Holt, Alec; Hodge, Ken
    The use of computer software as an aid to rugby, and sports coaching in general, is becoming increasingly utilized. Videoed sport is the most widely used form of raw data for sports analysis, though it is currently not ...
  • Special issue: GeoComputation ’96 

    Anderson, Martin; Kasabov, Nikola; Purvis, Martin; Benwell, George; Kennedy, Geoff; Sallis, Philip
    A collection of papers authored by members of the Information Science department and presented at the 1st International Conference on GeoComputation, Leeds, United Kingdom. (The individual papers are also available separately.)
  • St John's Ambulance Service, Southern Region: Control centre dispatch profile (1997–2001) 

    Hayes, Jared
    The St John's Ambulance Service, Southern Region Control Centre (the control centre) is located in Dunedin City and controls 56 ambulances based in 26 regional stations. The Southern Region covers an area of approximately ...
  • Strategic Issues for GMOs in Primary Production: Key Economic Drivers and Emerging Issues 

    Campbell, Hugh; Fitzgerald, Ruth; Saunders, Caroline; Sivak, Leda
    The Warrant of the Royal Commission of Enquiry into Genetic Modification asks a range of questions about the kinds of consequences (health, environmental, legal, cultural, ethical and economic) that might occur should GM ...
  • A study on feature analysis for musical instrument classification 

    Deng, Da; Simmermacher, Christian; Cranefield, Stephen
    In tackling data mining and pattern recognition tasks, finding a compact but effective set of features has often been found to be a crucial step in the overall problem-solving process. In this paper we present an empirical ...
  • Styles of policy leadership and local government reform 

    Wallis, Joe; Dollery, Brian
    The impact a shift from strong to an empathetic style of policy leadership in central government can have on the direction of local government reform is considered in the UK context where the Thatcherite attempt to supply ...
  • The Styx agent methodology 

    Bush, Geoff; Cranefield, Stephen; Purvis, Martin
    Agent-oriented software engineering is a promising new approach to software engineering that uses the notion of an agent as the primary entity of abstraction. The development of methodologies for agent-oriented software ...
