  • A study into the feasibility of generic programming for the construction of complex software 

    Caballé Llobet, Santiago; Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos (tranSIT GmbH, 2003)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A high degree of abstraction and capacity for reuse can be obtained in software design through the use of Generic Programming (GP) concepts. Despite widespread use of GP in computing, some areas such as the construction ...
  • Towards a generic platform for developing CSCL applications using Grid infrastructure 

    Caballé Llobet, Santiago; Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos; Daradoumis, Thanasis; Marques Puig, Joan Manuel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The goal of this paper is to explore the possibility of using CSCL component-based software under a Grid infrastructure. The merge of these technologies represents an attractive, but probably quite laborious enterprise if ...
  • A grid-based approach for processing group activity log files 

    Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos; Caballé Llobet, Santiago; Daradoumis, Thanasis; Zhou, Nan (Springer, 2004)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The information collected regarding group activity in a collaborative learning environment requires classifying, structuring and processing. The aim is to process this information in order to extract, reveal and provide ...
  • Under-the-cell routing to improve manufacturability 

    Vidal Obiols, Alexandre; Cortadella Fortuny, Jordi; Petit Silvestre, Jordi (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The progressive miniaturization of technology and the unequal scalability of the BEOL and FEOL layers aggravate the routing congestion problem and have a negative impact on manufacturability. Standard cells are designed ...
  • Aplicación de herramientas avanzadas de soporte a la toma de decisiones en la digestión anaerobia de lodos 

    Cugueró Escofet, Miquel Àngel; Aguiló Martos, Pere; Sáenz de Cabezón Soriano, Berta; Sànchez-Marrè, Miquel (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    El Consorci Besòs – Tordera (CBT), en su labor constante de investigación, mejora y optimización del funcionamiento de sus Estaciones Depuradoras de Aguas Residuales (EDARs), ha desarrollado un sistema de diagnosis avanzada ...
  • Synthesis of all-digital delay lines 

    Moreno Vega, Alberto; Cortadella Fortuny, Jordi (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The synthesis of delay lines (DLs) is a core task during the generation of matched delays, ring oscillator clocks or delay monitors. The main figure of merit of a DL is the fidelity to track variability. Unfortunately, ...
  • The parallel approximability of a subclass of quadratic programming 

    Serna Iglesias, María José; Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1997)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we deal with the parallel approximability of a special class of Quadratic Programming (QP), called Smooth Positive Quadratic Programming. This subclass of QP is obtained by imposing restrictions on the ...
  • Parallel skeletons for Tabu search method 

    Blesa Aguilera, Maria Josep; Hernàndez, Lluis; Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2001)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    We present two generic parallel skeletons for the tabu search method-a well known meta-heuristic for approximately solving combinatorial optimization problems. The first skeleton is based on independent runs while the ...
  • Bridging deep and kernel methods 

    Belanche Muñoz, Luis Antonio; Ruiz Costa-Jussà, Marta (2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    There has been some exciting major progress in recent years in data analysis methods, including a variety of deep learning architectures, as well as further advances in kernel-based learning methods, which have demonstrated ...
  • Mobile graphics: SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 course 

    Agus, Marco; Gobbetti, Enrico; Marton, Fabio; Pintore, Giovanni; Vázquez Alcocer, Pere Pau (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
  • Count-invariance including exponentials 

    Kuznetsov, Stepan; Morrill, Glyn; Valentín, Oriol (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2017)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We define infinitary count-invariance for categorial logic, extending countinvariance for multiplicatives (van Benthem, 1991) and additives and bracket modalities (Valentín et al., 2013) to include exponentials. This ...
  • Increasing the robustness of digital circuits with ring oscillator clocks 

    Machado, Lucas; Roca Pérez, Antoni; Cortadella Fortuny, Jordi (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Technology scaling enables lower supply voltages, but also increases power density of integrated circuits. In this context, power integrity becomes a major concern in the implementation of highperformance designs. This ...
