  • Permeable and Non-reflecting Boundary Conditions in SPH 

    Lastiwka, Martin; Basa, Mihai; Quinlan, Nathan J. (Wiley, 2009-11)
    Inflow and outflow boundary conditions are essential for the application of computational fluid dynamics to many engineering scenarios. In this paper we present a new boundary condition implementation that enables the ...
  • Permissive roles of cytokines Interleukin-7 and Flt3-ligand in mouse B cell lineage commitment 

    von Muenchow, Lilly; Alberti-Servera, Llucia; Klein, Fabian; Capoferri, Giuseppina; Finke, Daniela; Ceredig, Rhodri; Rolink, Antonius; Tsapogas, Panagiotis (National Academy of Sciences, 2016-11-04)
    Hematopoietic cells are continuously generated throughout life from hematopoietic stem cells, thus making hematopoiesis a favorable system to study developmental cell lineage commitment. The main factors incorporating ...
  • The persistent spatial patchiness of limpet grazing 

    Johnson, Mark P. (Elsevier, 2008)
    The characteristic variability of grazing has potential consequences for intertidal productivity and community structure, particularly as many of the underlying functional relationships are thought to be non linear. As a ...
  • Personalized Question Answering: A Use Case for Business Analysis 

    Thai, VinhTuan; O'Riain, Sean; Davis, Brian; O'Sullivan, David (2006)
    In this paper, we introduce the Personalized Question Answering framework, which aims at addressing certain limitations of existing domain specific Question Answering systems. Current development efforts are ongoing to ...
  • Podcast Pinpointer: A Multimedia Semantic Web Application 

    Hogan, Aidan; Harth, Andreas; Breslin, John (IEEE, 2005)
    In late 2004, a new method of publishing multimedia broadcasts on the Internet became popular called `Podcasting¿. Podcasting incorporates existing feed description formats, namely RSS 2.0, to ...
  • Post-UN Withdrawal: An Assessment of Peacekeeping in Chad 

    Murphy, Ray (2011)
    The primary task of the parallel UN and European Union peace operations to Chad and the Central African Republic s (CAR) borders with Sudan in 2008 was protection of civilians and humanitarian workers.   Delays in deployment ...
  • Practice-related research methods as part of scientific information systems research 

    Halonen, Raija (Indian Journal of Science and Technology, 2009)
    This article discusses the importance of research methods in scientific information systems research. To limit the approach, the emphasis is laid on practice-driven research methods. While the nature of `research¿ is ...
  • Pragmatic approach in IS projects grounded on recognised frameworks 

    Halonen, Raija (2008)
    This paper stands for IS projects that are carried out practionally, using action-oriented approach and by grounding on recognised frameworks to serve as a foundation for better IS research. We introduce two different IS ...
  • Predicting the elastic properties of selective laser sintered PCL/b-TCP bone scaffold materials using computational modelling. 

    Doyle, Heather; Lohfeld, Stefan; McHugh, Peter E. (Springer, 2013)
    Abstract This study assesses the ability of finite element (FE) models to capture the mechanical behaviour of sintered orthopaedic scaffold materials. Individual scaffold struts were fabricated from a 50:50 wt% ...
  • Presenting data for team-based decision-making in agile information systems projects 

    Halonen, Raija; Acton, Thomas; Conboy, Kieran (2009)
    Although there are a number of purported benefits of agile systems development methods over traditional forms, many in the Information Systems Development (ISD) community highlight the difficulties that the dynamic, turbulent ...
  • Presenting the un-presentable: how to display data for decision making 

    Acton, Thomas; van der Heijden, Hans; Golden, William (2008-10-20)
    A concern with computer systems is how best to present onscreen data. This can be particularly problematic for large quantities of data and in contexts of organisational and managerial decision making. Another concern ...
  • Previewing Semantic Web Pipes 

    Phuoc, Danh Le; Polleres, Axel; Samwald, Matthias; Tummarello, Giovanni (Springer, 2008)
    In this demo we present a first implementation of Semantic Web Pipes, a powerful tool to build RDF-based mashups. Semantic Web pipes are defined in XML and when executed they fetch RDF graphs on the Web, operate on them, ...
  • Pro-B cells propagated in stromal cell-free cultures reconstitute functional B-cell compartments in immunodeficient mice 

    von Muenchow, Lilly; Tsapogas, Panagiotis; Albertí-Servera, Llucia; Capoferri, Giuseppina; Doelz, Marianne; Rolink, Hannie; Bosco, Nabil; Ceredig, Rhodri; Rolink, Antonius G. (Wiley, 2016-12-28)
    Up to now long-term in vitro growth of pro-B cells was thought to require stromal cells. However, here we show that fetal liver (FL) and bone marrow (BM) derived pro-B cells can be propagated long-term in stromal cell-free ...
  • Process Mediation Based on Triple Space Computing 

    Zhou, ZhangBing; Sapkota, Brahmananda; Cimpian, Emilia; Foxvog, Doug; Vasiliu, Laurentiu; Hauswirth, Manfred (Springer, 2008)
    Web services are inherently heterogeneous at both data and behavioral levels because of the nature of the Web, which is the main obstacle to the usability of Web services. The heterogeneity at a behavioral level is generally ...
  • Processing ontology alignments with SPARQL 

    Polleres, Axel (IEEE, 2008)
    Solving problems raised by heterogeneous ontologies can be achieved by matching the ontologies and processing the resulting alignments. This is typical of data mediation in which the data must be translated from one ...
  • Processing ontology alignments with SPARQL 

    Polleres, Axel (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
  • Produce and Consume Linked Data with Drupal! 

    Corlosquet, Stéphane; Delbru, Renaud; Polleres, Axel; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2009)
    Currently a large number of Web sites are driven by Content Management Systems (CMS) which manage textual and multimedia content but also - inherently - carry valuable information about a site¿s structure and content ...
