  • Cao, Longbing; Zhang, Chengqi; Ni, Jiarui (IEEE, 2005)
    Architectural design is a critical phase in building agent-based systems. However, most of existing agent-oriented software engineering approaches deliver weak or incomplete supports for the architectural design of distributed ...
  • Debenham, John; Simoff, Simeon (IEEE, 2005)
    Negotiation is an information exchange process as well as an offer exchange process. Theories of competitive negotiation are typically founded on game theory where the agent's utility function is the focus. If an agent is ...
  • Debenham, John (Springer-Verlag, 2002)
  • Debenham, John; Simoff, Simeon (Springer-Verlag Berlin, 2006)
    Information-rich environments, such as electronic markets, or even more generally the World Wide Web, require agents that can assimilate and use real-time information flows wisely. A new breed of information-based agents ...
  • Debenham, John (Idea Group Reference, 2007)
    This chapter describes a generic multi-issue negotiation agent that is designed for a dynamic information-rich environment. The agent strives to make informed decisions by observing signals in the marketplace and by observing ...
  • Debenham, John; Sierra, Carles (Springer, 2005)
    Trust measures the relationship between commitment and perceived execution of contracts, and is the foundation for the confidence that an agent has in signing a contract. Negotiation is an information exchange process as ...

  • Debenham, John; Sierra, Carles (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    An agent architecture supports the two forms of deliberation used by human agents. The work is founded on the two forms of rationality described by the two Nobel Laureates Friedrich Hayek and Vernon Smith. Cartesian, ...

  • Vazquez, Ld; Kuhl, Ea; Shea, Jb; Kirkness, Ann; Lemon, Jim; Whalley, D; Conti, Jb; Sears, Sf (Blackwell Publishing, 2008)
    Background: Common psychological adjustment difficulties have been identified for groups of implantable cardioverter defibrillator patients, such as those who are young (< 50 years old), have been shocked, and are female. ...
  • Balducci, Anna; Magosso, Enrico; Colombo, Gaia; Sonvico, Fabio; Abdul Karim Khan, Nurzalina; Yuen, Kah; Bettini, Ruggero; Colombo, Paolo; Rossi, Alessandra (American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists, 2013)
    Artemisinin, a poorly water-soluble antimalarial drug, presents a low and erratic bioavailability upon oral administration. The aim of this work was to study an agglomerated powder dosage form for oral administration of ...
  • Huang, Tony; Lin, Chun-Cheng; Huang, Mao Lin (ACM Press, 2012)
    Aesthetics are often used to judge how good a graph drawing is in terms of specific drawing rules. A direct measurement of overall quality is missing. In this paper, we propose to evaluate quality based on aggregation of ...
  • Gill, Asif; Henderson-Sellers, Brian; Mcbride, Tom (Polytechnic University of Valencia, 2007)
    Agile software development methods focus on the rapid and iterative delivery of a software product in small increments. Over the last decade, the software industry has shown a substantial interest in agile practices but ...
  • Tran, Quynh-Nhu Numi; Henderson-Sellers, Brian; Hawryszkiewycz, Igor (IGI Global, 2009)
    Method fragments for work units and workflows are identified for the support of agile methodologies. Using one such situational method engineering approach, the OPEN Process Framework, we show how the full set of these ...

  • O'Sheedy, Daniel; Sankaran, Shankar (Atlantis Press, 2013)
    Project management methods have been developed from industry practices and international standards to ensure a higher rate of success for information technology projects. These have been widely used in large organisation ...
  • Gill, Asif; Henderson-Sellers, Brian (Springer-Verlag, 2009)
    We have developed an agile software solution framework (ASSF) to create and tailor situation-specific agile methods by using a method engineering approach. Here, we report on a questionnaire-based survey with thirty-three ...
  • Gill, Asif; Henderson-Sellers, Brian (Springer, 2007)
    The complex nature of the software development paradigm and the rapid acceptance of emerging abstraction mechanisms, such as agent-oriented and service-oriented computing, highlight the increasing need for re-evaluation ...
  • Tennant, Mark; Roberts, Susan (ACER Press, 2007)
    An analysis of the literature identifying the factors related to satisfactory completion of a doctoral degree and the implications for matching supervisors with students.
