Swift: A Tool For Constructing Workflows For Dynamic Network Analysis, David Garlan, Bradley Schmerl, Vishal Dwivedi, Aparup Banerjee, Laura Glendenning, Mai Nakayama, Nina Patel 2011 Carnegie Mellon University

Swift: A Tool For Constructing Workflows For Dynamic Network Analysis, David Garlan, Bradley Schmerl, Vishal Dwivedi, Aparup Banerjee, Laura Glendenning, Mai Nakayama, Nina Patel

Institute for Software Research

Dynamic Network Analysis is a domain of computation that refers to the analysis of complex social systems that change over time. Within this domain, analysts need to be able to carry out workflows, involving composition of various tools and procedures that they use to extract and analyze social systems. Typically these workflows require the incorporation of heterogeneous tools in distributed locations, are interactive in that they allow dynamic parameterization and exploration, and can be shared with and reused by other analysts in different contexts. Furthermore, because such analysts are not computer programmers, they require an approach for constructing workflows that ...

In-Degree Dynamics Of Large-Scale P2p Systems, Zhongmei Yao, Daren B. H. Cline, Dmitri Loguinov 2011 University of Dayton

In-Degree Dynamics Of Large-Scale P2p Systems, Zhongmei Yao, Daren B. H. Cline, Dmitri Loguinov

Computer Science Faculty Publications

This paper builds a complete modeling framework for understanding user churn and in-degree dynamics in unstructured P2P systems in which each user can be viewed as a stationary alternating renewal process. While the classical Poisson result on the superposition of n stationary renewal processes for n→∞ requires that each point process become sparser as n increases, it is often difficult to rigorously show this condition in practice. In this paper, we first prove that despite user heterogeneity and non-Poisson arrival dynamics, a superposition of edge-arrival processes to a live user under uniform selection converges to a Poisson process when system ...


Teaching Software Engineering Project Management-A Novel Approach For Software Engineering Programs, Craig Caulfield, David Veal, Stanislaw Maj 2011 Edith Cowan University

Teaching Software Engineering Project Management-A Novel Approach For Software Engineering Programs, Craig Caulfield, David Veal, Stanislaw Maj

ECU Publications 2011

In response to real and perceived short-comings in the quality and productivity of software engineering practices and projects, professionally-endorsed graduate and post-graduate curriculum guides have been developed to meet technical developments and evolving industry demands. Each of these curriculum guidelines identifies better software project management skills as critical for all graduating students, but they provide little guidance on how to achieve this. One possible way is to use a serious game - a game designed to teach and educate players about some of the dynamic complexities of the field in a safe and inexpensive environment. This paper presents the results of ...


Supporting Introductory Test-Driven Labs With Webide, Thomas C. Dvornik 2011 California Polytechnic State University – San Luis Obispo

Supporting Introductory Test-Driven Labs With Webide, Thomas C. Dvornik

Master's Theses and Project Reports

WebIDE is a new web-based development environment for entry-level programmers with two primary goals: minimize tool barriers to writing computer programs and introduce software engineering best practices early in a student's educational career. Currently, WebIDE focuses on Test-Driven Learning (TDL) by using small iterative examples and introducing lock-step labs, which prevent the student from moving forward until they finish the current step. An initial set of labs and evaluators were created as examples of how to use WebIDE and were used in a pilot study in a CS0 course where students were split into two groups, one that used ...

Instance-Based Parameter Tuning Via Search Trajectory Similarity Clustering, Linda LINDAWATI, Hoong Chuin LAU, David LO 2011 Singapore Management University

Instance-Based Parameter Tuning Via Search Trajectory Similarity Clustering, Linda Lindawati, Hoong Chuin Lau, David Lo

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

This paper is concerned with automated tuning of parameters in local-search based meta-heuristics. Several generic approaches have been introduced in the literature that returns a ”one-size-fits-all” parameter configuration for all instances. This is unsatisfactory since different instances may require the algorithm to use very different parameter configurations in order to find good solutions. There have been approaches that perform instance-based automated tuning, but they are usually problem-specific. In this paper, we propose CluPaTra, a generic (problem-independent) approach to perform parameter tuning, based on CLUstering instances with similar PAtterns according to their search TRAjectories. We propose representing a search trajectory as ...


Fine-Tuning Algorithm Parameters Using The Design Of Experiments Approach, Aldy GUNAWAN, Hoong Chuin LAU, Linda Lindawati 2011 Singapore Management University

Fine-Tuning Algorithm Parameters Using The Design Of Experiments Approach, Aldy Gunawan, Hoong Chuin Lau, Linda Lindawati

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Optimizing parameter settings is an important task in algorithm design. Several automated parameter tuning procedures/configurators have been proposed in the literature, most of which work effectively when given a good initial range for the parameter values. In the Design of Experiments (DOE), a good initial range is known to lead to an optimum parameter setting. In this paper, we present a framework based on DOE to find a good initial range of parameter values for automated tuning. We use a factorial experiment design to first screen and rank all the parameters thereby allowing us to then focus on the ...


Haskell For The Cloud, Andrew P. Black 2011 Portland State University

Haskell For The Cloud, Andrew P. Black

Computer Science Faculty Publications and Presentations

We present Cloud Haskell, a domain specific language for developing programs for a distributed-memory computing environment. Implemented as a shallow embedding in Haskell, it provides a message-passing communication model, inspired by Erlang, without introducing incompatibility with Haskell's established sharedmemory concurrency. A key contribution is a method for serializing function closures for transmission across the network. Cloud Haskell has been implemented; we present example code and some preliminary performance measurements.


Analyzing Software Updates: Should You Build A Dynamic Updating Infrastructure?, Hridesh Rajan, Bashar Gharaibeh, Morris Chang 2011 Iowa State University

Analyzing Software Updates: Should You Build A Dynamic Updating Infrastructure?, Hridesh Rajan, Bashar Gharaibeh, Morris Chang

Computer Science Conference Presentations, Posters and Proceedings

The ability to adapt software systems to fix bugs, add/change features without restarting is becoming important for many domains including but not limited to finance, social networking, control systems, etc. Fortunately, many ideas have begun to emerge under the umbrella term “dyanamic updating” to solve this problem. Dynamic updating is critical to address certain software evolution needs. Dynamic updating literature evaluates such systems in terms of coverage (i.e. what type of code changes are supported) and performance. However, we do not have a technique to analyze whether certain updating solution, based on its costs and benefits, is suitable ...

Parallel-Sparse Symmetrical/Unsymmetrical Finite Element Domain Decomposition Solver With Multi-Point Constraints For Structural/Acoustic Analysis, Siroj Tungkahotara, Willie R. Watson, Duc T. Nguyen, Subramaniam D. Rajan

Civil & Environmental Engineering Faculty Publications

Details of parallel-sparse Domain Decomposition (DD) with multi-point constraints (MPC) formulation are explained. Major computational components of the DD formulation are identified. Critical roles of parallel (direct) sparse and iterative solvers with MPC are discussed within the framework of DD formulation. Both symmetrical and unsymmetrical system of simultaneous linear equations (SLE) can be handled by the developed DD formulation. For symmetrical SLE, option for imposing MPC equations is also provided.

Large-scale (up to 25 million unknowns involving complex numbers) structural and acoustic Finite Element (FE) analysis are used to evaluate the parallel computational performance of the proposed DD implementation using ...


Determinants Of Knowledge Mapping Adoption In Software Maintenance, Joseph K. Lee 2011 Edith Cowan University

Determinants Of Knowledge Mapping Adoption In Software Maintenance, Joseph K. Lee

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

Knowledge Maps (KMaps) could be ideally suited for resolving many of the traceability problems in computer software maintenance. This thesis provides an understanding of the various factors that will encourage or impede the software maintenance community to adopt KMaps as part of their process. ABC Company in Perth, Western Australia, was chosen as the research site because it is a multinational software development company with customers in many major cities around the world. Since Knowledge Mapping (KMapping) is relatively new to most software staffers, it was necessary to develop a Software Maintenance KMap prototype. A literature review of KMapping, innovation ...


Comparing The Fieldscout Greenindex+ Chlorophyll Sensing App To The Minolta Spad Meter, Jessica D. Pille, John E. Sawyer, Daniel W. Barker 2011 Iowa State University

Comparing The Fieldscout Greenindex+ Chlorophyll Sensing App To The Minolta Spad Meter, Jessica D. Pille, John E. Sawyer, Daniel W. Barker

Agronomy Conference Proceedings and Presentations

With the improvement of mobile computing, the company Spectrum Technologies, Inc. has developed a precision Ag App which adapts an iPod, iPad, or iPhone camera to select for specific wavelengths of light from a corn leaf (Zea mays L.) in comparison to accompanying board for light/color comparison. The App computes a Dark Green Color Index (DGCI), indicating leaf greenness, which relates to the amount of chlorophyll and thus, indirectly, leaf nitrogen (N) content. The question posed for this study is: How accurate and convenient is the App compared to a proven technology, the Minolta 502 Soil-Plant Analysis Development (SPAD ...
