  • Computational Homology of Cubical and Permutahedral Complexes 

    Hegarty, Fintan (2012-09-28)
    Homology is the study of connectivity and "holes" in spaces. The aim of this thesis is to introduce and develop a theory of permutahedral complexes for computations of homology of large data sets and to compare, using ...
  • A Context Lifecycle For Web-Based Context Management Services 

    Hynes, Gearoid; Reynolds, Vinny; Hauswirth, Manfred (2009)
    During the development of context aware applications a con- text management component must traditionally be created. This task re- quires specialist context lifecycle management expertise and hence can be a significant ...
  • Converging Web and Desktop Data with Konduit 

    Dragan, Laura; Möller, Knud; Handschuh, Siegfried; Ambrus, Oszkar (2009)
    In this paper we present Konduit, a desktop-based platform for visual scripting with RDF data. Based on the idea of the semantic desktop, non-technical users can create, manipulate and mash-up RDF data with Konduit, and ...
  • A Conversation-oriented language for B2B integration based on Semantic Web Services 

    Gomez, Juan Miguel; Haller, Armin; Bussler, Christoph (2005)
    Establishing conversations in a B2B environment has significantly eased since the advent of standards such as RosettaNet and ebXML. These standardisation efforts have maintained some flexibility in defining interactions ...
  • CORAAL - Towards Deep Exploitation of Textual Resources in Life Sciences 

    Novacek, Vit; Groza, Tudor; Handschuh, Siegfried (Springer Verlag, 2009)
    Prominent biomedical literature search tools like ScienceDirect, PubMed Central or MEDLINE allow for efficient retrieval of resources based on key words. Due to vast amounts of data available in life sciences, key word ...
  • Cost-Aware Processing of Similarity Queries in Structured Overlays 

    Karnstedt, Marcel; Hauswirth, Manfred (2006)
    Large-scale distributed data management with P2P systems requires the existence of similarity operators for queries as we cannot assume that all users will agree on exactly the same schema and value representations and ...
  • D-FOAF - Distributed Identity Management based on Social Networks 

    Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Gzella, Adam; Grzonkowski, Slawomir (2006)
    Contemporary Web consists of more than just information, it provides a large number of services, which often require identi¿cation of it¿s users. Since distributed or shared identi¿cation systems are not yet widely adopted ...
  • D-FOAF - Security Aspects in Distributed User Management System 

    Grzonkowski, Slawomir; Gzella, Adam; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Woroniecki, Tomasz (IEEE, 2005)
    The contemporary Internet offers various services ranging from electronic newspapers to on- line social networks. To authorize themselves, users have to register to on-line services. However, most of the ...
  • Data and Process Mediation Support for B2B Integration 

    Zaremba, Maciej; Herold, Maximilian; Zaharia, Raluca; Vitvar, Tomas (2008)
    In this paper we present how Semantic Web Service technology can be used to overcome process and data heterogeneity in a B2B integration scenario. While one partner uses standards like RosettaNet for product purchase and ...
  • Data Portability with SIOC and FOAF 

    Bojars, Uldis; Passant, Alexandre; Breslin, John (2008)
    Data portability has become an important requirement on the Social Web. This paper describes how data and social network portability can be achieved by building upon existing Semantic Web developments such as SIOC and FOAF. ...
  • Development and Implementation of an Ultra High Speed Astronomical Polarimeter: The Galway Astronomical Stokes Polarimeter (GASP) 

    Collins, Patrick P. (2013-05-12)
    Optical polarization is a powerful diagnostic tool in astrophysics, allowing the investigation of asymmetries in source regions of astronomical objects, magnetic field configurations, and magnetic field strengths. Polarized ...
  • Development of a dual-hit model of Parkinson's disease by combining environmental and genetic risk factors 

    Mulcahy, Pádraig John (2012-06-06)
    Even though half a century has passed since the discovery of the efficacy of the dopamine precursor, levodopa, it remains the most effective therapy for the motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease to this day, despite its ...
  • The Development of A Realistic Simulation Framework with OMNeT++ 

    Shu, Lei (IEEE, 2008)
    It is necessary to use simulation tools in the study of wireless network. The object-oriented modular discrete event network simulator, OMNeT++, can not only afford many network simulation but has strong GUI support and ...
  • Development of a targeting mechanism for regeneration of the intervertebral disc 

    Cunningham, Claire (2014-11-24)
    Degeneration of the intervertebral discs (IVD) is a leading cause of neck and low back pain. While its aetiology is poorly understood, it is known to begin in the central nucleus pulposus region, leading to degradation of ...
  • The Development of Ultra Wideband Scanning Techniques for Detection and Classification of Breast Cancer 

    Conceicao, Raquel (2010-09-30)
    This thesis addresses the development of imaging techniques for the early detection of breast cancer, based on Ultra Wideband (UWB) radar, a promising emerging technology that exploits the dielectric contrast between normal ...
