      Golden, William; Conboy, Kieran; Acton, Thomas; Halonen, Raija (Association of Information Systems, 2008)
      This paper highlights the problem with access rights as a part of information security in enterprises with many information systems and their human users. In many organisations, users often write down their user names and ...
    • Accessing Cultural Heritage using the Web of Data 

      Jankowski, Jacek; Cobos, Yolanda; Hausenblas, Michael; Decker, Stefan (2009)
      Cultural Heritage (CH) is a vast domain, where sharing information is challenging. As a result, the global CH is distributed and heterogeneous. In this paper, we present the concept of the Web of Data as an approach to ...
    • Accurate Bayesian prediction of cardiovascular-related mortality using ambulatory blood pressure measurements 

      O'Neill, James; Madden, Michael G.; Dolan, Eamon (Springer Cham, 2017-05-30)
      Hypertension is the leading cause of cardiovascular-related mortality (CVRM), affecting approximately 1 billion people worldwide. To enable patients at significant risk of CVRM to be treated appropriately, it is essential ...
    • Achieving nearly zero-energy buildings - A lifecycle assessment approach to retrofitting buildings 

      Moran, Paul; Goggins, Jamie; Hajdukiewicz, Magdalena (NUI Galway, 2015-04-23)
      It is now widely recognised in the academic and business worlds that energy efficiency in buildings provides significant environmental and economic opportunities, but also challenges. The building sector offers considerable ...
    • The ACL RD-TEC: A Dataset for Benchmarking Terminology Extraction and Classification in Computational Linguistics 

      QasemiZadeh, Behrang; Handschuh, Siegfried (2014)
      This paper introduces ACL RD-TEC: a dataset for evaluating the extraction and classification of terms from literature in the domain of computational linguistics. The dataset is derived from the Association for Computational ...
    • ActiveRDF: Object-oriented semantic web programming 

      Oren, Eyal; Delbru, Renaud; Gerke, Sebastian; Haller, Armin; Decker, Stefan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2007)
      Object-oriented programming is the current mainstream programming paradigm but existing RDF APIs are mostly triple-oriented. Traditional techniques for bridging a similar gap between relational databases and object-oriented ...
    • Adapting informal sources of knowledge to e-Learning 

      Jankowski, Jacek; Czaja, Filip; Dobrzanski, Jaroslaw (2007)
    • Adaptive Mesh Multi-Scale Modelling of Tidal Hydraulics and Material Transport 

      Nash, Stephen; Hartnett, Michael (2011)
      Multi-scale modelling for structured meshes is achieved by nesting high resolution grids within lower resolution grids. By specifying high resolutions in areas of interest only, computational cost can be reduced. Adaptive ...
    • An adaptive mesh solute transport model 

      Nash, Stephen; Hartnett, Michael (2009)
      An adaptive mesh solute transport model is presented. The adaptive mesh scheme is implemented in a one-way multiply nested version of the hydrobiological model DIVAST (Depth Integrated Velocity and Solute Transport). The ...
