Partial Program Admission
Found in: Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium, IEEE
By Michael Wilson, Ron Cytron, Jonathan Turner
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 295-304
Real-time systems on non-preemptive platforms require a means of bounding the execution time of programs for admission purposes. Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) is most commonly used to bound program execution time. While bounding a program’s WCET statica...
Contracts as Trust Substitutes in Collaborative Business

Issue Date:March 2008
pp. 13-19
Two or more parties typically establish a business relationship using a contract, but a large gap still exists between the provisions of contracts produced by lawyers and the details of computer security and performance addressed by technologists. Some con...
Adaptive Business Protocol Support in Service Oriented B2B Collaborations
Found in: Enabling Technologies, IEEE International Workshops on
By Adomas Svirskas, Justinas Bedzinskas, Bob Roberts, Ioannis Ignatiadis, Michael Wilson
Issue Date:June 2006
pp. 261-262
Service Oriented Architecture approach in general and the Web services technology in particular are becoming more and more important in modern networked organisations and Virtual Organisations (VO). However, it is not enough to have the business functional...
On Satisfying Timing and Resource Constraints in Distributed Multimedia Systems
Found in: Multimedia Computing and Systems, International Conference on
By Costas Mourlas, David Duce, Michael Wilson
Issue Date:June 1999
pp. 16
In this paper, we present a new synchronization strategy for multimedia applications executed in a distributed environment. This strategy makes the timing properties of the system and the quality of the media presentations predictable since one is able to ...
Enhanced Interaction Styles for User Interfaces

pp. 79-90
<p>Seven precompetitive research projects on user interfaces in Europe are described. The projects considered are Hufit, the Comett I Project, the Elusive Office Project, the Euroworkstation Project, Acord, MMI/sup 2/, and Xtra. The integration of us...
Inference of the Genetic Network Regulating Lateral Root Initiation in Arabidopsis thaliana
Found in: IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB)
By Charlie Hodgman, Daniele Muraro, Helen Byrne, Ive De Smet, John King, Malcolm Bennett, Michael Wilson, Ute Vob
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 50-60
Regulation of gene expression is crucial for organism growth, and it is one of the challenges in systems biology to reconstruct the underlying regulatory biological networks from transcriptomic data. The formation of lateral roots in Arabidopsis thaliana i...
