Modelling ecological data. (1992)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Barclay, P. J., & Kennedy, J. (1992). Modelling ecological data. In H. Hinterberger, & J. C. French (Eds.), Proceedings of the Sixth International Working Conference on Scientific and Statistical Database Management (77-93)

Ecological surveys generate large quantities of data; database technology has not yet reached its full potential in this area. Here we investigate approaches to modelling ecological data, considering the require- ments for a successful model. An ob... Read More about Modelling ecological data..

Scrivener, S. A. R., Clark, S., Smyth, M., Harris, D., & Rockoff, T. (1992, November). Designing at a distance: experiments in remote-synchronous design. Presented at OZCHI’92: Interface technology – Advancing human-computer communication

Control of a large massively parallel database machine using SQL catalogue extensions, and a DSDL in preference to an operating system (1992)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Unwalla, M., & Kerridge, J. (1992, July). Control of a large massively parallel database machine using SQL catalogue extensions, and a DSDL in preference to an operating system. Presented at Advanced Database Systems: 10th British National Conference on Databases, BNCOD 10, Aberdeen, Scotland

The IDIOMS parallel database machine supports large applications where integrated OLTP and MIS is required. It can be considered a relational engine, and SQL is used as the MIS query language. We make some comparisons between IDIOMS and other databas...

Semantic integrity for persistent objects (1992)
Journal Article
Barclay, P. J., & Kennedy, J. (1992). Semantic integrity for persistent objects. Information and Software Technology, 34(8), 533-541. https://doi.org/10.1016/0950-5849%2892%2990147-H

Modelling constructs for specifying semantic integrity are reviewed, and their implicit execution semantics discussed. An integrity maintenance model based on these constructs is presented. An implementation of this model in a persistent programming... Read More about Semantic integrity for persistent objects.

The role of task analysis in systems design (1992)
Journal Article
Benyon, D. (1992). The role of task analysis in systems design. Interacting with Computers, 4(1), 102-123. https://doi.org/10.1016/0953-5438%2892%2990015-8

Task analysis and systems analysis are both collections of techniques aimed at the development of interactive computer-based systems. Clearly there must be some relationship between them. However, since the techniques originate from different discipl... Read More about The role of task analysis in systems design.
