  1. 1. Software Robustness: From Requirements to Verification

    Author : Ali Shahrokni; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; robustness; quality requirements; requirements patterns; robustness testing; requirements specification; non-functional requirements; requirements refinement;

    Abstract : The importance of software quality increases as software products become more intertwined with our everyday lives. A critical software quality attribute is robustness, i.e. that the software shows stable behavior in stressful conditions and when receiving faulty inputs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards Dependable Virtual Companions for Later Life

    Author : Dennis Maciuszek; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Older adults; assistive technology; virtual companion; dependability; requirements; software architecture; agents; patterns; user involvement; personalisation; human-computer interaction; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : When we grow older, we become more vulnerable to certain reductions in quality of life. Caregivers can help, however human care is limited, and will become even scarcer in the near future. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy Efficiency in Shopping Malls : Some Aspects Based on a Case Study

    Author : Sofia Stensson; Jan-Olof Dalenbäck; Per Fahlén; Monica Axell; Jeffrey Spitler; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Shopping mall; energy use; energy efficiency; HVAC system; load patterns; case study; regulatory requirements; building code; and energy declarations; energy declarations;

    Abstract : The building sector accounts for approximately 40 percent of our energy use. To reach existing environmental targets energy use will have to be reduced in all building types. At the European level, the main legislative instrument for improving the energy efficiency of the building stock is the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). READ MORE

  4. 4. Rarity in boreal stream: patterns, causes and consequences

    Author : Per-Ola Hoffsten; Bo W. Svensson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Central Sweden; site occupancy; dispersal limitation; natural disturbances; recolonization; flight-morphology; metapopulation; habitat stability; spring specialists; Crunoecia irrorata; niche limitation; Isogenus nubecula; nestedness; longitudinal distribution; Ekologi; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : Patterns of site occupancy among boreal stream insects were studied in central Sweden with focus on sparsely distributed species and the role of dispersal and niche limitations.In the study of dispersal limitation, I found that effects of an extraordinarily harsh winter in small to medium-sized streams were strongest in sites located in small streams and far from lake outlets.
