Approaches to Storing and Querying Structural Information in Botanical Specimen Descriptions.

Conference Proceeding
Paterson, T., & Kennedy, J. (2004)
Approaches to Storing and Querying Structural Information in Botanical Specimen Descriptions. In L. M. MacKinnon, A. G. Burger, & P. Trinder (Eds.), Key technologies for data management: Proceedings of the 21st Annual British National Conference on Databases (BNCOD21), 80-91
We are developing an ontology as a defined terminology for the taxonomic description of botanical specimens. To allow these descriptions to unambiguously refer to a given plan...

Application of CoSMoS parallel design patterns to a pedestrian simulation.

Conference Proceeding
Clayton, S., Urquhart, N. B., & Kerridge, J. (2009)
Application of CoSMoS parallel design patterns to a pedestrian simulation. In R. Wyrzykowski, J. Dongarra, K. Karczewski, & J. Wasniewski (Eds.), Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics, (505-512). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-14403-5_53
In this paper, we discuss the implementation of a simple pedestrian simulation that uses a multi agent based design pattern developed by the CoSMoS research group. Given the n...

Assessing the available and accessible evidence: how personal reputations are determined and managed online.
