Software process simulation is increasingly being used as an approach for analyzing complex business, for supporting management planning, for helping with software process training and learning and for supporting the software process improvement. In addition to providing to users a simulation tool that supports all these aspects, it is also important to(More)
Interest in evaluating Business Process Modeling Languages has widespread, in part due to the increase of the number of languages available for this purpose. Several works on the evaluation of BPMLs are available. Their evaluation are mainly based on perspectives centered in modeling experts. In this paper, we address the readability perspective of two(More)
Simulation games supporting students' education and training are being described in an increasing number of works. Simulations are accepted as a complementary mode for the traditional teaching methods by stimulating and motivating learning through providing a realistic environment for the students to practice. They can engage students in a more enjoyable(More)
The increasing interest in Software Engineering simulation games leads to the problem of how to assess these games in order to measure their real benefits. Until the current days, few attempts were proposed in order to support practitioners evaluating simulation games. This paper introduces UGALCO, a five-dimensional framework for simulation games(More)
Focal myositis is an acute and localized muscle inflammation of unknown aetiology. The clinical diagnosis is often difficult to obtain, since it can be confused with infections, vascular thrombosis or muscle tumours such as sarcomas. This leads to a significant delay in the diagnosis, resulting in the administration of inappropriate and potentially harmful(More)
New fluorinated and methoxylated di(hetero)arylethers and di(hetero)arylamines were prepared functionalizing the 7-position of the thieno[3,2-b]pyridine, using copper (C-O) or palladium (C-N) catalyzed couplings, respectively, of the 7-bromothieno[3,2-b]pyridine, also prepared, with ortho, meta and para fluoro or methoxy phenols and anilines. The compounds(More)
BACKGROUND Novel autoantibodies targeting intracellular proteins are recently detected in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs). OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prevalence of these myositis-specific antibodies (MSAs) in juvenile IIMs (JIIMs) and their association with clinical characteristics and disease course. METHODS A systematic(More)
Three aminodi(hetero)arylamines were prepared via a palladium-catalyzed C-N Buchwald-Hartwig coupling of methyl 3-aminothieno[3,2-b]pyridine-2-carboxylate with different bromonitrobenzenes, followed by reduction of the nitro groups of the coupling products to the corresponding amino compounds. The aminodi(hetero)arylamines thus obtained were evaluated for(More)
Search-Based Software Engineering (SBSE) applies search-based optimization techniques in order to solve complex Software Engineering problems. In the recent years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of SBSE applications in areas such as Software Test, Requirements Engineering, and Project Planning. Our focus is on the analysis of the literature(More)
