Large join order optimization on parallel shared-nothing database machines using genetic algorithms (1997)
Conference Proceeding
Nafjan, K. A., & Kerridge, J. M. (1997). Large join order optimization on parallel shared-nothing database machines using genetic algorithms. In Euro-Par'97 Parallel Processing: Third International Euro-Par Conference Passau, Germany, August 26–29, 1997 Proceedings (1159-1163). https://doi.org/10.1007/bfb0002867

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...

User modelling and the design of computer-based assistive devices (1997)
Conference Proceeding
Keates, S., & Dowland, R. (1997). User modelling and the design of computer-based assistive devices. In Computers in the Service of Mankind: Helping the Disabled (Digest No.: 1997/117), IEE Colloquium on (9/1-9/3). https://doi.org/10.1049/ic%3A19970638

User models are well represented in the field of human-computer interaction. They afford designers of interfaces detailed quantitative knowledge of the user for improved design, both in terms of the final end-product and the time taken to achieve thi...

Distance estimation in minimal virtual reality environments. (1997)
Conference Proceeding
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. The results have been then compared with an experimental study of spatial cognition in the real world. It is concluded that the minimal virtual envi...
