  • Song, Lei (Master of Computing, 2014)
    A variety of environmental problems increasingly attract academic research in order to protect ecosystems and minimise negative effects on human health. Advanced computational environmental analysis technologies have the ...
  • Alexander, Samuel T.V.; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Global Business and Technology Association 2014 Conference, 2014)
    A method of peer tutoring was used and evaluated in an introductory programming course in Haskell. Students were paired on the basis of skill level with pairings opposite those suggested by the existing literature. This ...
  • Fourie, Leon; Overmyer, Scott; Shanbehzadeh, Jamshid; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Alexander, Samuel T.V. (Global Business and Technology Association 2014 Conference, 2014)
    Easy with Eve is an affect-sensitive tutoring system that features Eve, an animated pedagogical agent that adapts to student emotion based on the results of an observational study of human tutors. This paper presents the ...
  • Fourie, Leon; Pang, Shaoning; Kingston, Tamsin; Hettema, Hinne; Watters, Paul; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Global Business and Technology Association 2014 Conference, 2014)
    Cyber threats pose substantial risk to government, businesses and individuals. There is an alarming shortage of trained professionals and academic programs to train and produce these professionals. Many countries including ...
  • Martin, Bernd H. (Master of Computing, 2013)
    This research scientifically analysed the evolving Complex Network structures of the New Zealand Computer Science research community upon multiple levels (Macro, Meso, Micro, Topics). Methodological approaches utilised ...
  • Stafford, Rebecca Q.; MacDonald, Bruce A.; Jayawardena, Chandimal; Wegner, Daniel M; Broadbent, Elizabeth (International Journal of Social Robotics, 2014)
    Robots are starting to be developed for aged care populations and some of these have been made into commercial products that have been well received. However, little is known about the psychological factors that promote ...
  • Chen, Gang; Sarrafzadeh, Abdolhossein; Pang, Shaoning (IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, 2013)
    Different from traditional P2P systems, individuals nodes of a Federated Service Providing (FSP) system play a more active role by offering a variety of domain-specific services. The service provision control (SPC) problem ...
  • Pang, Shaoning; Zhu, Lei; Chen, Gang; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Ban, Tao; Inoue, Daisuke (Neural Networks, 2013)
    Linear Proximal Support Vector Machines (LPSVMs), like decision trees, classic SVM, etc. are originally not equipped to handle drifting data streams that exhibit high and varying degrees of class imbalance. For online ...
  • Basheri, Mohammed; Munro, Malcolm; Burd, Liz; Baghaei, Nilufar (International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications, 2013)
    The use of multi-touch interfaces for collaborative learning has received significant attention. Their ability to synchronously accommodate multiple users is an advantage in co-located collaborative design tasks. This paper ...
  • Komosny, Dan; Simek, Milan; Kathiravelu, Ganeshan (Przegl ˛ad Elektrotechniczny, 2013)
    The paper deals with IP geolocation based on communication latency measurement. The aim of IP geolocation is to estimate the geographical location of an IP-enabled node. Latency-based IP geolocation methods measure latency ...
  • Alexander, Samuel T.V.; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2004)
    Whenever people talk to each other, non-verbal behaviour plays a very important role in regulating their interaction. However, almost all human-computer interactions take place using a keyboard or mouse – computers are ...
  • Weerawarna, Rashikala (Master of Computing, 2013)
    The main research question is: “Which combination of IPSec algorithm and operating system give the best network performance when measured for TCP/UDP traffic?” The sub questions that need to be answered are:  Does ...
  • Chitti, Anupama (Master of Computing, 2013)
    Research has proved that requirements engineering in e-health projects is a challenge. Many of the ehealth software end-users do not believe in investment in this process and e-health vendors find it challenging to deliver ...
  • Tirumala, Sreenivas Sremath (Master of Computing, 2013)
    Continued and rapid improvement in evolutionary algorithms has made them suitable technologies for tackling many difficult optimization problems. Recently the introduction of quantum inspired evolutionary computation has ...
  • Veerisetty, Neeharika (Master of Computing, 2013)
    With the incidence of technology at each and every juncture of human life, there has been an accelerated growth in computational needs to satisfy the technological cravings. Computer networks have evolutionarily emerged ...
  • Dadgostar, F; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Australian Journal of Intelligent Information Processing Systems., 2009)
    "This paper presents research leading to the development of a vision-based gesture recognition system. The system comprises of three abstracts layers each with their own specific type and requirements of data ..."
  • Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Chen, Gang (ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems, 2010)
    P2P-like applications are quickly gaining popularity in the Internet. Such applications are commonly modeled as graphs with nodes and edges. Usually nodes represent running processes that exchange information with each ...
  • Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Aghajari, G; Shanbehzadeh, Jamshid (Proceedings of International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists, 2010)
    Text data in image present useful information for automatic annotation, indexing and structuring of images. In this paper, we propose an approach to automatically localize horizontally texts appearing in color and complex ...
  • Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Alexander, Samuel T.V.; Hill, S (International Journal of Intelligent Systems Technologies and Applications, 2008)
    The developing field of Affective Tutoring Systems (ATSs) has created a need to understand how such tutoring systems should adapt to the emotional state of students. To this end, an observational study of human tutors was ...
  • Mohaghegh, Mahsa; Manford, Chris; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (International Conference on Computer and Communication Devices ICCCD, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks need to deliver real-time services such as video, audio and traditional data services therefore providing efficient quality of services (QoS) support is essential. In this paper we aim to address ...
