Bournemouth University research on Computing and Informatics, the Software and Systems Engineering focus area, achieved a strong presence in the IEEE Ninth International Conference on Research Challenges in Information Science (RCIS), which was held from May 13th to May 15th, 2015 in Athens, Greece. (Refer to http://www.rcis-conf.com/rcis2015/).
Our participation included the presentation of three papers:
- “Adaptive Software-based Feedback Acquisition: A Personas-based Design”: Malik Almaliki, Cornelius Ncube & Raian Ali
- “Configuring Crowdsourcing for Requirements Elicitation”: Mahmood Hosseini, Alimohammad Shahri, Keith Phalp, Jacqui Taylor, Fabiano Dalpiaz & Raian Ali
- “Recommendations on Adapting Crowdsourcing to Problem Types”: Mahmood Hosseini, Alimohammad Shahri, Keith Phalp & Raian Ali
The papers were presented by two PGRs, Mahmood Hosseini and Malik Almaliki. Fellow researchers and practitioners praised the timeliness and applicability of the topics and stated their interest for possible collaboration. The presentations also provided a great opportunity for the exchange of knowledge, for increasing the visibility and impact of our research in Computing and Informatics in Bournemouth University and for displaying our vibrant environment. This follows our last year success at this same conference RCIS’14 and our recent strong presence in REFSQ’15.
The research was partially funded by a European FP7 Marie Curie CIG Grant (the SOCIAD Project), and the Graduate School of Bournemouth University via the Santander PGR Development Fund.
