This position paper sets out our views on the need to use simulation and quantitative experiments in combination in order to maximise the benefit of both to software engineering research. Each approach should be used to overcome weaknesses in the other in attempting to predict the behaviour of software processes when new or modified processes, tools or(More)
Previous research has identified a number of metrics derived from program slicing. In this paper we discuss how these metrics relate to the effort required to evolve an existing software-based system. Whilst our interest in this work stems from our development of simulation models of long-term software evolution processes, it will also be directly relevant(More)
In opportunistic networks the availability of an end-to-end path is no longer required. Instead opportunistic networks may take advantage of temporary connectivity opportunities. Opportunistic networks present a demanding environment for network emulation as the traditional emulation setup, where application/transport endpoints only send and receive packets(More)
