Comprehension And Maintenance Of Large Scale Multi-Language Software Applications: Open Issues And Challenges, Kostas Kontogiannis, Panos K. Linos, Kenny Wong 2010 Butler University

Comprehension And Maintenance Of Large Scale Multi-Language Software Applications: Open Issues And Challenges, Kostas Kontogiannis, Panos K. Linos, Kenny Wong

Panos K. Linos

During the last decade, the number of software applications that have been deployed as a collection of components implemented in different programming languages and paradigms has increased considerably. When such applications are maintained, traditional program comprehension and reengineering techniques may not be adequate. In this context, this working session aims to stimulate discussion around key issues relating to the comprehension, reengineering, and maintenance of multi-language software applications. Such issues include, but are not limited to, the formalization, management, exploration, and presentation of multi-language program dependencies, as well as the development of practical toolsets for automating and easing the comprehension and ...

The measurement of software metrics at the MSIL (Microsoft Intermediate Language) level can be as effective as measuring such metrics at the level of each individual language (e.g. VB, Java, C# etc.).


Moving Targets: Geographically Routed Human Movement Networks, Adam J. Aviv, Micah Sherr, Matt Blaze, Jonathan M. Smith 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Moving Targets: Geographically Routed Human Movement Networks, Adam J. Aviv, Micah Sherr, Matt Blaze, Jonathan M. Smith

Technical Reports (CIS)

We introduce a new communication paradigm, Human-to-human Mobile Ad hoc Networking (HuManet), that exploits smartphone capabilities and human behavior to create decentralized networks for smartphone-to-smartphone message delivery. HuManets support stealth command-and-control messaging for mobile BotNets, covert channels in the presence of an observer who monitors all cellular communication, and distributed protocols for querying the state or content of targeted mobile devices.

In this paper, we introduce techniques for constructing HumaNets and describe protocols for efficiently routing and addressing messages. In contrast to flooding or broadcast schemes that saturate the network and aggressively consume phone resources (e.g., batteries), our protocols ...


Bay Audio Repair Website & Data Management Application, Michael Shelley 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Bay Audio Repair Website & Data Management Application, Michael Shelley

Computer Science

The goal of this senior project was to build a website and software application to receive and manage audio equipment repair requests for a small startup company called Bay Audio Repair (BAR). Furthermore, it allowed me to gain experience in web development and software engineering practices, specifically requirements gathering, design and implementation. The website provides an online interface for BAR’s customers to request repairs and the application allows BAR employees to update the progress of a repair. Several technologies were used in the system’s construction: HTML, XML, PHP, and C#.


Software Internationalization: A Framework Validated Against Industry Requirements For Computer Science And Software Engineering Programs, John Huân Vũ 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Software Internationalization: A Framework Validated Against Industry Requirements For Computer Science And Software Engineering Programs, John Huân Vũ

Master's Theses and Project Reports

View John Huân Vũ's thesis presentation at http://youtu.be/y3bzNmkTr-c.

In 2001, the ACM and IEEE Computing Curriculum stated that it was necessary to address "the need to develop implementation models that are international in scope and could be practiced in universities around the world." With increasing connectivity through the internet, the move towards a global economy and growing use of technology places software internationalization as a more important concern for developers. However, there has been a "clear shortage in terms of numbers of trained persons applying for entry-level positions" in this area. Eric Brechner, Director of Microsoft ...


Medially: A Provenance-Aware Remote Health Monitoring Middleware, Atanu ROY CHOWDHURY, Ben FALCHUK, Archan MISRA 2010 Harvard University

Medially: A Provenance-Aware Remote Health Monitoring Middleware, Atanu Roy Chowdhury, Ben Falchuk, Archan Misra

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

This paper presents MediAlly, a middleware for supporting energy-efficient, long-term remote health monitoring. Data is collected using physiological sensors and transported back to the middleware using a smart phone. The key to MediAlly's energy efficient operations lies in the adoption of an Activity Triggered Deep Monitoring (ATDM) paradigm, where data collection episodes are triggered only when the subject is determined to possess a specified context. MediAlly supports the on-demand collection of contextual provenance using a novel low-overhead provenance collection sub-system. The behaviour of this sub-system is configured using an application-defined context composition graph. The resulting provenance stream provides valuable ...

Overseer: A Mobile Context-Aware Collaboration And Task Management System For Disaster Response, Faisal B. Luqman, Martin L. Griss 2010 Carnegie Mellon University

Overseer: A Mobile Context-Aware Collaboration And Task Management System For Disaster Response, Faisal B. Luqman, Martin L. Griss

Martin L Griss

Efficient collaboration and task management is challenging in distributed, dynamically-formed organizations such as ad hoc disaster response teams. Ineffective collaboration may result in poor performance and possible loss of life. In this paper, we present an open multi-agent system, called Overseer, that leverages context information in a mobile setting to facilitate collaboration and task allocation for disaster response. We describe our system architecture, deployment, evaluation metrics, challenges and proposed solutions. We also show how mobile context can be used to create dynamic rolebased assignments to support collaboration and effective task management


Spreadsheets Grow Up: Three Spreadsheet Engineering Methodologies For Large Financial Planning Models, Thomas A. Grossman Jr., O Ozluk 2010 University of San Francisco

Spreadsheets Grow Up: Three Spreadsheet Engineering Methodologies For Large Financial Planning Models, Thomas A. Grossman Jr., O Ozluk

Business Analytics and Information Systems

Many large financial planning models are written in a spreadsheet programming language (usually Microsoft Excel) and deployed as a spreadsheet application. Three groups, FAST Alliance, Operis Group, and BPM Analytics (under the name “Spreadsheet Standards Review Board”) have independently promulgated standardized processes for efficiently building such models. These spreadsheet engineering methodologies provide detailed guidance on design, construction process, and quality control. We summarize and compare these methodologies. They share many design practices, and standardized, mechanistic procedures to construct spreadsheets. We learned that a written book or standards document is by itself insufficient to understand a methodology. These methodologies represent a ...

Smart Events And Primed Agents, Catherine Stocker, Pengfei Huang, Norman I. Badler 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Smart Events And Primed Agents, Catherine Stocker, Pengfei Huang, Norman I. Badler

Center for Human Modeling and Simulation

We describe a new organization for virtual human responses to dynamically occurring events. In our approach behavioral responses are enumerated in the representation of the event itself. These Smart Events inform an agent of plausible actions to undertake. We additionally introduce the notion of agent priming, which is based on psychological concepts and further restricts and simplifies action choice. Priming facilitates multi-dimensional agents and in combination with Smart Events results in reasonable, contextual action selection without requiring complex reasoning engines or decision trees. This scheme burdens events with possible behavioral outcomes, reducing agent computation to evaluation of a case expression ...
