An important issue in resource allocation is the estimation of Defect Resolution Time (DRT). Prior research has considered different approaches for DRT prediction exploiting information retrieval(More)
Information System engineering involves multiple languages for modeling, programming and handling various artifacts throughout the development cycle. These languages are usually supported by software tools. The construction of these tools is a complex task often done in an ad-hoc manner. Proper use of meta-modeling techniques has the potential to facilitate(More)
Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) have emerged as a promising technology that has shown enormous potential in improving the quality of healthcare, and has thus found a broad range of medical applications from ubiquitous health monitoring to emergency medical response systems. The huge amount of highly sensitive data collected and generated by WBAN nodes(More)
The increasing growth in popularity of Web services has made it difficult for business users to fully benefit from these services if they remain specified at the software level. The introduction of intentional services is an alternative for bridging the gap between low level, technical software-service descriptions and high level, strategic expressions of(More)

The approach presented in this work aims to guide the companies in their design of requirements traceability models adapted to the context of their projects. This is achieved by allowing the construction of a model based on trace fragments adapted to each phase of the development process or to a specific situation. Furthermore, the approach guides the users(More)
The prevalence of asthma was determined in a random sample of schoolchildren in Ahvaz city, southwest Islamic Republic of Iran, based on the International Study of Asthma and Allergy in Childhood (ISAAC) protocol. The prevalence of ever wheeze and current wheeze was 11.1% and 7.4% among 1410 children aged 6-7 years (parent-reported) and 17.7% and 10.3%(More)
With the increasing growth in popularity of Web services, discovering relevant Web services becomes a significant challenge. The introduction of intentional services has been proposed to bridge the gap between low level, technical softwareservice descriptions and high level, strategic expressions of business needs for services.
