Problems and solutions: Maintaining an integrated system in a community of volunteers
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2009:204, Doctoral thesis, 2009)
Motivation. Software maintenance is a significant part of the software life-cycle cost. Current research focuses on the maintenance of application software. Despite increased focus on systems integration, there is limited ...
Trade-offs for web application development: understanding and improving current industrial practices
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2009:02, Doctoral thesis, 2009)
When web applications are developed with a strong emphasis on time-to-market, the resulting development and trade-opractices are informal and make use of uncertain and fragmented knowledge. Developers and other stakeholders ...
Access Control in Healthcare Information Systems
(Doctoral Theses at NTNU, 1503-8181; 2009:24, Doctoral thesis, 2009)
Access control is a key feature of healthcare information systems. Access control is about enforcing rules to ensure that only authorized users get access to resources in a system. In healthcare systems this means protecting ...
The Profile of Software Changes in Reused vs. Non-Reused Industrial Software Systems
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2009:90, Doctoral thesis, 2009)
High-quality software, delivered on time and budget, constitutes a critical part of most products and services in modern society. Our ability to develop and maintain such software is still inadequate. However, software ...
New Approaches for Representation and Segmentation of Organs in CT and MR Scans
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2009:79, Doctoral thesis, 2009)
Analysis of medical images is resource demanding and time-consuming, and automatic procedures are needed to reduce the workload of medical staff in a pre-operative planning phase. In this thesis, the main focus has been ...
A Groovy Virtual Drummer:Learning by Imitation Using a Self-Organizing Connectionist Architecture
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2009:171, Doctoral thesis, 2009)
The research in this thesis aims to enable robots to imitate humans. Learning by imitation is a fundamental part of human behaviour, since it allows humans to acquire motor skills simply by demonstration; seen from a robotic ...

Potentials and limitations of motif-based binding site prediction in DNA
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2008:239, Doctoral thesis, 2008)
As the full genomic DNA sequence is now available for several organisms, a major next challenge is determining the function of DNA elements. This task is often referred to as functional genomics. An important part of ...
Searching large data volumes with MISD processing
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2008:207, Doctoral thesis, 2008)
Historically, supercomputing has focused on number crunching. Nonnumeric applications, such as information retrieval and analysis, have to a lesser extent been able to exploit the inherent resources of supercomputers. This ...
Semantic Annotation for Process Models: Facilitating Process Knowledge Management via Semantic Interoperability
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2008:3, Doctoral thesis, 2008)
