Journal Article
Gordon, N., Kabir, S., Sharvia, S., Walker, M., & Al-Qora’n, L. (in press). A safety analysis approach to clinical workflows : application and evaluation. International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications, 4(3), 82-91. doi:10.14569/SpecialIssue.2014.040310

Clinical workflows are safety critical workflows as they have the potential to cause harm or death to patients. Their safety needs to be considered as early as possible in the development process. Effective safety analysis methods are required to ens... Read More

Reliability analysis of dynamic systems by translating temporal fault trees into Bayesian networks (2014)
Book Chapter
Kabir, S., Walker, M., & Papadopoulos, Y. (2013). Reliability analysis of dynamic systems by translating temporal fault trees into Bayesian networks. In Model-Based Safety and Assessment; Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 96-109. Springer Verlag. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-12214-4_8

Classical combinatorial fault trees can be used to assess combinations of failures but are unable to capture sequences of faults, which are important in complex dynamic systems. A number of proposed techniques extend fault tree analysis for dynamic s... Read More

Partitioning networks into cliques : a randomized heuristic approach (2014)
Journal Article
Chalupa, D. (2014). Partitioning networks into cliques : a randomized heuristic approach. Information Sciences and Technologies Bulletin of the ACM Slovakia, 6(3), 1-8

In the context of community detection in social networks, the term community can be grounded in the strict way that simply everybody should know each other within the community. We consider the corresponding community detection problem. We search for... Read More

Episodic elaboration: Investigating the structure of retrieved past events and imagined future events (2014)
Journal Article
Anderson, R. J., Dewhurst, S. A., & Peters, L. (2015). Episodic elaboration: Investigating the structure of retrieved past events and imagined future events. Consciousness and cognition, 33(1), (112-124). doi:10.1016/j.concog.2014.12.007. ISSN 1090-2376

Five experiments investigated the cognitive processes involved in the elaboration of past and future events. A production listing procedure was used, in which participants listed details of each event in forwards chronological order, backwards chrono... Read More

A new measure of sportspersonship that differentiates between compliance and principled decisions was developed and validated in three studies. In Study 1, a 71-item questionnaire was developed and administered to 357 sports participants, before prin... Read More

Using portfolio optimisation to calculate the efficient relationship between maritime port security residual risk and security investment (2014)
Journal Article
Talas, R., & Menachof, D. (2013). Using portfolio optimisation to calculate the efficient relationship between maritime port security residual risk and security investment. International Journal of Shipping and Transport Logistics, 6(3), 314-338. doi:10.1504/IJSTL.2014.060788

The research employs an adaptive cross-disciplinary research strategy in an industrial example to address container port facilities’ inability to assess whether their security systems are efficient. The research combines subjective assessments of the... Read More
