Given an undirected graph with weights on the vertices, the maximum weight clique problem (MWCP) is to find a subset of mutually adjacent vertices (i.e., a clique) having the largest total weight. This is a generalization of the classical problem of finding the maximum cardinality clique of an unweighted graph, which arises as a special case of the MWCP(More)
This article addresses the area of decision making for information systems (IS). We recognize the great demand for methods and techniques that can be of practical help by presenting a new, conceptual approach, the profile distance method, to support the IS selection problem.

In this empirical study a concept map is reorganized and clustered in order to provide an intuitive structure for browsing. The concepts are represented as nodes created by the authors of articles but also by readers of these articles. Semantic dependencies are coded through links between the nodes to build a graph. We report an experiment in which such a(More)
In this paper, we propose to arrive at an assessment and evaluation of open source projects based on an analysis of their growth rates in several aspects. These include code base, developer number, bug reports and downloads. Based on this analysis and assessment, a well-known portfolio planning method, the BCG matrix, is employed for arriving at a very(More)
