A Database System for Supporting Taxonomic Work (1999)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Raguenaud, C., Kennedy, J., & Barclay, P. J. (1999). A Database System for Supporting Taxonomic Work.

Taxonomists classify organisms in order to refer to, identify and understand them. Over time, the same organism may be classified according to different taxonomic opinions. As alternative classifications multiply, taxonomists are faced with the need... Read More about A Database System for Supporting Taxonomic Work.

Approximation of chaotic shapes with tree-structured neural networks (1999)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Andras, P. (1999). Approximation of chaotic shapes with tree-structured neural networks. In IJCNN'99: International Joint Conference on Neural Networks, Proceedings (817-820). https://doi.org/10.1109/IJCNN.1999.831056

The approximation of highly irregular decision regions is a challenging problem in pattern recognition and classification. Existing neural networks require many neurons for approximating irregular decision regions. A new tree-structured neural networ...

A questionnaire survey of national libraries and publishers of electronic materials and their representatives) was conducted in order to identify the most important issues about archiving electronic publications. The purpose of the project was to gai... Read More about Electronic Publications: an Agenda for National Libraries and Publishers.

Synchronisation primitives for highly parallel discrete event simulations (1999)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Kerridge, J., Welch, P., & Wood, D. (1999, January). Synchronisation primitives for highly parallel discrete event simulations. Presented at HICSS 32 - 32nd Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, Maui, HI, USA

A new set of synchronisation primitives is described that simplifies the control of very large numbers of fine-grained parallel processes. The new primitives are derived from the multi-way event synchronisation and choice defined in communicating seq...

From description to requirements: an activity theoretic perspective. (1999)
Journal Article
Turner, P., Turner, S., & Horton, J. (1999). From description to requirements: an activity theoretic perspective. Proceedings of Group’99, 285-295

This paper demonstrates how activity theoretic concepts can be used in conjunction with an ethnographically informed approach to derive requirements on a work situation. We present a case study based on a series of collaborative design episodes,... Read More about From description to requirements: an activity theoretic perspective..

Dimensional analysis based causal ordering (1999)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Shen, Q., Peng, T., & Milne, R. (1999). Dimensional analysis based causal ordering. In Proceedings of the 13th International Workshop on Qualitative Reasoning (193-202)

This paper presents a novel approach for generating causal dependencies between system variables, from an acausal description of the system behaviour, and for identifying the end causal impact; in terms of whether a change in the value of an influenc...

EniSpace: Evaluating Navigation in Information Space (1999)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
McCall, R., & Benyon, D. (1999). EniSpace: Evaluating Navigation in Information Space. In P. De Bra, & J. J. Leggett (Eds.), Proceedings of WebNet World Conference on the WWW and Internet 1999 (1344-1345)

Traditional methods of evaluating usability such as heuristic evaluation and cognitive walkthrough do not address all issues relating to navigation. This is despite the fact that designing effective navigation within electronic spaces is now consider... Read More about EniSpace: Evaluating Navigation in Information Space.

Political parties, democracy and the new information and communication technologies: theorising the relationships (1999)
Journal Article
Löfgren, K., & Smith, C. F. (1999). Political parties, democracy and the new information and communication technologies: theorising the relationships. Working paper / Faculty of Business, Glasgow Caledonian University,

As a result of the increased public penetration of the Internet and other forms of electronic networks in western liberal democracies there has, for some years now, been a growing academian interest in technologically mediated practices within politi...

Two evolutionary approaches to cross-clustering problems. (1999)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Luchian, H., Paechter, B., Radulescu, V., & Luchian, S. (1999). Two evolutionary approaches to cross-clustering problems. In Proceedings of the 1999 Congress on Evolutionary Computation (860-870). https://doi.org/10.1109/CEC.1999.782514

Cross-clustering asks for a Boolean matrix to be brought to a quasi-canonical form. The problem has many applications in image processing, circuit design, archaeology, ecology etc. The heuristics currently used to solve it rely on either topologi...
