    Over the years, spreadsheets have established their presence in many domains, including business, government, and science. However, challenges arise due to spreadsheets being partially-structured and carrying implicit ...
  • Influence of developer factors on code quality: a data study 

    Salamea Bravo, Maria Jose; Farré Tost, Carles (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Automatic source-code inspection tools help to assess, monitor and improve code quality. Since these tools only examine the software project’s codebase, they overlook other possible factors that may impact code quality ...
  • Automatically configuring parallelism for hybrid layouts 

    Munir, Rana Faisal; Abelló Gamazo, Alberto; Romero Moral, Óscar; Thiele, Maik; Lehner, Wolfgang (Springer, 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Distributed processing frameworks process data in parallel by dividing it into multiple partitions and each partition is processed in a separate task. The number of tasks is always created based on the total file size. ...
  • Keeping the data lake in form: DS-kNN datasets categorization using proximity mining 

    Al-serafi, Ayman Mounir Mohamed; Abelló Gamazo, Alberto; Romero Moral, Óscar; Calders, Toon (Springer, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    With the growth of the number of datasets stored in data repositories, there has been a trend of using Data Lakes (DLs) to store such data. DLs store datasets in their raw formats without any transformations or preprocessing, ...
  • Mapping the sustainable development goals into the EDINSOST sustainability map of bachelor engineering degrees 

    Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; López Álvarez, David; Bragós Bardia, Ramon; Cabré Garcia, José M.; Climent Vilaró, Joan; Vidal López, Eva María; Martín Escofet, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)

    This Research to Practice Work in Progress paper presents the work conducted on the use of the Sustainability Map of Bachelor Engineering Degrees (a tool developed by the EDINSOST project) to analyze how Sustainable ...
  • A framework for selecting workflow tools in the context of composite information systems 

    Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Quer, Carme; Rodríguez Cámara, Núria (Springer, 2004)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    When an organization faces the need of integrating some workflow-related activities in its information system, it becomes necessary to have at hand some well-defined informational model to be used as a framework for ...
  • Information microsystems 

    Pradel Miquel, Jordi; Raya Martos, Jose Antonio; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), 2010)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Given their need to manage the information they have under control, organizations usually choose among two types of widely used IT solutions: 1) information systems based on databases (DBIS) that are powerful but expensive ...
  • Combining different implementations of types in a program 

    Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Ulm University, 1994)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a methodology to support the existence of multiple type implementations when programming with a modular, abstract-data-type oriented language. Multiple implementations arise from the need to separate ...
  • Towards anticipating requirements changes through studies of the future 

    Pimentel, João Henrique; Castro, Jaelson; Perelli, Hermano; Santos, Emanuel; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Whilst it is considered a good practice to focus Requirements Engineering on current stakeholder needs, the high costs implied by requirements changes and the emergence of the Autonomic Computing paradigm raised the need ...
  • The convenience for a notation to express non-functional characteristics of software components 

    Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (1997)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Software systems are characterised both by their functionality (what the system does) and by their non-functionality (how does the system behave with respect to some observable attributes like performance, reusability, ...
  • Modelling non-functional requirements 

    Botella López, Pere; Burgués Illa, Xavier; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Huerta, Mario; Salazar, Guadalupe (Universidad de Sevilla, 2001)
