Large join order optimization on parallel shared-nothing database machines using genetic algorithms (1997)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Nafjan, K. A., & Kerridge, J. M. (1997, August). Large join order optimization on parallel shared-nothing database machines using genetic algorithms. Presented at Euro-Par'97 Parallel Processing: Third International Euro-Par Conference, Passau, Germany

This paper proposes the use of genetic algorithms (GAs) for optimizing the sequence of large joins execution on parallel shared-nothing database architectures. In order to measure the suitability of this method we compare the GA that we have specific...

Distance estimation in minimal virtual reality environments. (1997)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (1997). Distance estimation in minimal virtual reality environments. In Proceedings of the 4th UK VR-SIG Conference

This paper reports on an experimental study into distance estimation in a simple virtual environment.

What does it really cost? allocating indirect costs. (1997)
Journal Article
Snyder, H., & Davenport, E. (1997). What does it really cost? allocating indirect costs. Bottom Line, 10(4), 158-164. https://doi.org/10.1108/08880459710183035

Better managerial control in terms of decision making and understanding the total costs of a system or service result from allocating indirect costs. Allocation requires a three-step process of selecting cost objectives, pooling related overhead cost... Read More about What does it really cost? allocating indirect costs..

Costing and pricing in the digital age: a practical guide for information services. (1997)
Book
Snyder, H., & Davenport, E. (1997). Costing and pricing in the digital age: a practical guide for information services. Neal-Schuman Publishers

The take-up of electronic information services has been retarded as much by the novel aspects of the pricing and accounting of resources they represent as by fear of technology or tight budgets. Library provision poses special problems as it must acc... Read More about Costing and pricing in the digital age: a practical guide for information services..

Enhancing community and collaboration in the virtual library. (1997)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Procter, R., McKinlay, A., Goldenberg, A., Davenport, E., Burnhill, P., & Cannell, S. (1997, September). Enhancing community and collaboration in the virtual library

The advent of the virtual library is usually presented as a welcome development for library users. Unfortunately, the emphasis which is often placed upon convenience of access tends to reinforce the perception of the use of information resources as a...

Using active constructs in user-interfaces to object-oriented databases. (1997)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Mitchell, K., Kennedy, J., & Barclay, P. J. (1997). Using active constructs in user-interfaces to object-oriented databases. In Proceedings [of the First] International database engineering and applications symposium, (3-12)

This paper examines the use of active constructs in the definition of user-interfaces to object-oriented databases. A development environment for user-interfaces to databases is presented which features the interactive use of active features of an ob...

The perspective tunnel: An inside view on smoothly integrating detail and context. (1997)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Mitchell, K., & Kennedy, J. (1997, April). The perspective tunnel: An inside view on smoothly integrating detail and context. Presented at Proc. of Eurographics Workshop on Visualisation in Scientific Computing

The perspective tunnel, a general kind of information visualisation artefact, embodies a visual form which exploits natural human visual perception. Perspective tunnels map information on to the floor, ceiling and walls of a tunnel, so that both ever...
