Towards a noveI approach to greener software services in the cloud.
Participation space studies. How do interpretations of online and offline spaces influence (e)participation in community and civic life?. How can people, from diverse backgrounds, increase meaningful participation online? What perspectives influence people's online activities in this context and how is this changing?
Festivals in the Networked Society. An escalation in communications technologies, which can be accessed by event producers and audiences 24 hours a day, connects festival communities in real time across a city and around the globe –...
Digital immunisation through network packets payload analysis and patterns-matching within a security boundary. The immune approach in anomaly detection enables detecting known and unknown intrusive activities in packets payload. Cloud computing has extended security boundaries from the traditional security...

An approach to dynamic and elastic cloud service specification, recommendation and provision. Along with the rapid development of expansion of the cloud computing market, not only the number of cloud applications continues growing, the complexity of their relationships also increases.
Evaluation framework for the optimisation of cloud-based infrastructures within healthcare environments.
A hyper heuristic approach to optimisation. Hyper-heuristics (HH) have been described as methodologies that aim to offer “good enough -soon enough - cheap enough” solutions to real world problems.
Social forecast of the future of the internet.
Framework for evaluation of e-health platform and services. Methodologies for evaluation of e-Health platforms are still lacking. This research proposes an e-Health evaluation framework that aims to provide a concise methodology for the evaluation of e-Health...
An approach to synergistic and dynamic service evolution in clouds.
The experience of interactive art is appropriation. This investigation examines various methods for evaluating interactivity and engagement with technology. By using a static model, namely the interactive gallery at The Public in West Bromwich it is...
Morpheme a 2D sketching interface for the control of concatenative synthesis. An investigation in the similarities between qualities of auditory and visual precepts.. The aim of this study is to explore graphical interfaces for comprehension, organization, and transformation of sound through direct manipulation of visual representations.
Complex Pleasures: Interactions in new-media art as a resource for the design of the user experience. This research will investigate the nature of interactions between people and experience-oriented technologies such as new-media artworks. The purpose of this research is to inform the design of...
Exploiting narrative hierarchies within computer games. One of the challenges of artificial intelligence in computer games is the effective use of learning to either automate the creation of intelligent agents for the release of a game, or to allow agents...
Using a mathematical graph framework for visualization of inheritance patterns in plant pedigrees.
An investigation into visual graph comparison. While much work has been done in the area of visualization for analysis of graphs, relatively little research exists into how best to use visualization for comparing graphs.
Binary matrix for pedestrian tracking in infrared images.
Success factors for organisational information systems development projects: a Scottish suppliers' perspective. The very idea that a modern day organisation might operate effectively without computerised information systems seems almost absurd. Yet, the projects that provide these systems have an unenviable...
