The aim of this paper is to explore the emerging definitions of software sustainability from the field of software engineering in order to contribute to the question, what is software sustainability?
This is a lecture intended to give a broad overview of the history, approach, methods, current focus and future of macroecology. It is intended for a 2 hour lecture where time is given to discuss openly the various patterns, have the student propose hypotheses, and to engaguge debate in the class over the patterns, methods, and approaches of macroecology. Its not an all encompassing lecture - there are clearly areas left out and issues not...

Large eddy simulations of a high Reynolds number Mach 0.9 jet fitted with 8, uniformly distributed microjets with a pressure ratio of 1.89 have been performed. This animation of total pressure contours in the near microjet region demonstrates the main-microjet interaction. Parcels of high total pressure are shown to be periodically separated from the injected microjet fluid by the main jet shear layer. These high total pressure regions then propagate downstream in the mian jet...
Apresentação realizada como parte da avaliação da disciplina "Introdução a Astrofísica Extragaláctica" (2013)
Oral presentation given at the 12th British Hydrological Society National Symposium 2014, Birmingham, UK (Ecohydrology session)
Talk given at Complenet 2013, on 14th March 2013 in Berlin. Given a set of sites in space, how can we model their possible interactions? This is a problem encountered in many fields including geography, economics, transport, communications, town planning, and archaeology. The interactions can be of many types: direct links, traffic flows, or ancient trade routes. Models which produce such spatial networks may be matched to available data and then used to make predictions...
The Royal Society of Chemistry is one of the worlds foremost scientific societies, a primary publisher for the chemical sciences and an innovator in the domain of eScience. In order to deliver on a number of our eScience projects we utilize a number of components of Advanced Chemistry Development software including nomenclature, physchem prediction, spectroscopy tools and the ACD/Ilab web-based system. This presentation will provide an overview of a number of RSC projects where ACS/Labs...

Molar density (D, mol/m3), temperature (T, K) and horizontal wind speed (m/s) measurements versus pressure (Pa) recorded by weather balloon radiosondes launched two to four times a day from Valentia Observatory, Ireland in 2012. The black vertical dashed lines indicate the troposphere/tropopause phase change discussed in: M. Connolly, and R. Connolly (2014). The physics of the Earth’s atmosphere II.

Abstract Software is developed by humans, and it is employed by humans. Practitioners know this well, and claim that the way to get the best from developers is to focus on them as people. This claim, also echoed by Boehm more than 25 years ago, is appealing but very difficult to verify in research. The software construction process is mainly intellectual. Recently, the discipline of software engineering has begun to adopt a multidisciplinary view and...
Presentation by Vince Smith and Simon Rycroft given at the Encyclopedia of Life Code Sprint hosted at the BioSynC facility at the Chicago Field Museum.

On the left side, the ridged of a stereoscopic sinusoidal grating are moving up and down, while the encoding random dot pattern is stationary. While one is able to track the ridges, their speed appears as low. On the right side, the random dots are moving at the veridaclly same speed as the depth ridges on the left, while the stereo-grating on the right is stationary.

Code templates are a convenient means to search and transform source code. However, such templates may still be difficult to specify, as they can produce too few or too many matches. To assist the users of our Ekeko/X program transformation tool, we have provided a suite of mutation operators for code templates and have designed a genetic search algorithm to recommend modifications to templates. Presented at SATToSE'15.
This is a slide deck from a presentation at the Ecological Society of America annual meeting in Baltimore, MD, USA on 11 August, 2015 in the Organized Oral Session for "New Perspectives for Ecology During the Anthropocene". Abstract: Ecological research has traditionally relied on data from surveys or experiments collected by small groups of scientists, students, and their research assistants or volunteers. These studies have provided many valuable contributions for ecology, and a detailed understanding...

How do we ensure that all research outputs are linked in such a way that another researcher can identify and access each of the datasets, software, publications, and other outputs necessary to validate and build on others' research? This presentation in the "Linking Data" workshop at Repository Fringe 2015 looks at the software side.

ESB Best Doctoral Thesis Award: multiscale computational modelling of angiogenesis during normal and impaired fracture healingAurélie Carlier
Worldwide, every three seconds an osteoporotic bone fracture occurs. This sums up to 8.9 million fractures each year without including the fractures due to traffic or work accidents. Luckily our bones have the ability to heal without scar formation, however 5 to 10% of the patients are confronted with a delayed healing or a permanent failure of bone healing. In this PhD work, a novel mathematical model was developed to understand why certain bone fractures...
