  1. 1. Designing Affective Loop Experiences

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Departmen of Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Petra Sundström; Stockholms universitet.; SICS.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science Computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap Data- och systemvetenskap; Man-Machine-Interaction MMI ; människa-maskin-interaktion mmi ; Design; Interaction; Communication; Mobile; Emotion; Body; Digital material;

    Abstract : There is a lack of attention to the emotional and the physical aspects of communication in how we up to now have been approaching communication between people in the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI). As designers of digital communication tools we need to consider altering the underlying model for communication that has been prevailing in HCI: the information transfer model. READ MORE

  2. 2. Programming Model and Protocols for Reconfigurable Distributed Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Cosmin Ionel Arad; KTH.; SICS.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; distributed systems; programming model; message-passing concurrency; nested hierarchical composition; reactive components; software architecture; dynamic reconfiguration; multi-core; discrete-event simulation; peer-to-peer; testing; debugging; distributed key-value stores; data replication; consistency; linearizability; network partition tolerance; consistent hashing; self-organization; scalability; elasticity; fault tolerance; consistent quorums;

    Abstract : Distributed systems are everywhere. From large datacenters to mobile devices, an ever richer assortment of applications and services relies on distributed systems, infrastructure, and protocols. Despite their ubiquity, testing and debugging distributed systems remains notoriously hard. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aspects of proactive traffic engineering in IP networks

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anders Gunnar; KTH.; SICS.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Automatic control; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : To deliver a reliable communication service over the Internet it is essential for the network operator to manage the traffic situation in the network. The traffic situation is controlled by the routing function which determines what path traffic follows from source to destination.

  4. 4. Task-based Information Seeking and Retrieval in the Patent Domain: Processes and Relationships

    University dissertation from FINLAND : Tampere University Press

    Author : Preben Hansen; SICS.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Information-intensive work tasks in professional settings usually involve dynamic and increasingly complex information handling tasks that include the gathering, assessment, assimilation, and creation of information. Understanding the factors affecting information handling processes, and their interaction, is important and forms the objective of this thesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Improving Low-Power Wireless Protocols with Timing-Accurate Simulation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Österlind; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; SICS.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datorkommunikation; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Communication; Low-Power Wireless Protocols; Wireless Sensor Networks; Contiki; Cooja; Simulation;

    Abstract : Low-power wireless technology enables numerous applications in areas from environmental monitoring and smart cities, to healthcare and recycling. But resource-constraints and the distributed nature of applications make low-power wireless networks difficult to develop and understand, resulting in increased development time, poor performance, software bugs, or even network failures.
