McCall, R., & Benyon, D. (1998). A software tool for evaluating navigation. In Proceedings of WebNet World Conference on the WWW and Internet 1999 (1723)

Traditional methods of usability evaluation ignore some aspects related to navigation. In contrast the navigation in information space paradigm sees the user as situated within the space. The ENiSpace (Evaluating Navigation in Information Space) syst... Read More about A software tool for evaluating navigation..

Political parties in the information age: from 'mass party' to leadership organization? (1998)
Book Chapter
Smith, C. F. (1998). Political parties in the information age: from 'mass party' to leadership organization?. In I. Snellen, & W. Donk (Eds.), Public Administration in an Information Age, A Handbook (175-190). IOS Press

In providing an overview of British political parties on the threshold of the 'information age', this chapter argues that any thorough analysis is incomplete without addressing their use of new information and communications technologies (ICTs). The... Read More about Political parties in the information age: from 'mass party' to leadership organization?.

Some observations about GA-based exam timetabling. (1998)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Ross, P., Hart, E., & Corne, D. (1998). Some observations about GA-based exam timetabling. In E. Burke, & M. Carter (Eds.), Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling II (115-129)

Although many people have tried using genetic algorithms (GAs) for exam timetabling, far fewer have done systematic investigations to try to determine whether a GA is a good choice of method or not. We have extensively studied GAs that use one partic... Read More about Some observations about GA-based exam timetabling..

An adaptive mutation scheme for a penalty-based graph-colouring GA. (1998)
Presentation / Conference Contribution

The folklore of evolutionary algorithms still seems to contain some gross over-generalistions, such as that direct encodings are inferior to indirect ones, that penalty-function methods are often poor, and that observed performance on a few instances...
