Logs play an important role in debugging and maintaining large applications. When a system fails, developers investigate the log records to gain insight to identify the problem. Traditionally developers used tools like grep and tail to identify irregular behavior. This approach is time consuming for large companies that can generate over 600GB...

In an interactive program the consumer requests data from the producer and therefore has control over the speed at which data is consumed. This is opposite to a reactive program, where the producer emits data to the consumer at its own pace. This forms a problem if the producer emits more data than the consumer can deal with. Solving this ...

Software testing is as old as software development itself – they could not exist one without the other. However, are they equally important? Do software developers devote an equivalent amount of time to both produce software and to test it? An ongoing study of the TestRoots project aims to examine and improve the state of the art of software...

Modern media and news consumption is shifting from traditional outlets to online social media and mobile devices. However, the Internet has central components that are vulnerable to monitoring, censorship and Internet kill-switches. Human rights, like the protection of privacy, honor and reputation are endangered by this. Mobile devices with...

Smartphones, or more general handhelds, which are commonly used for indoor localization purposes, are not a viable option in places where people do not carry them all the time, e.g., home and office. Alternatively using wearable devices brings along limitations in regards to power supply, processing capability and availability of sensors, which...

When talking about personalization online, Google CEO Eric Schmidt recently said "it will be very hard for people to watch or consume something that has not in some sense been tailored for them." This level of personalized filtering of content has worried academics and activists. Many argue that users will be trapped in a so-called "Filter...

Automated tests have always been essential for changing a piece of software. They let developers detect and locate faults early on and provide confidence in the product’s quality. With the rise of Continuous Delivery (CD) in software development, changes are being deployed multiple times a day. Maintaining a high quality test suite has therefore...

The recently introduced Gene-pool Optimal Mixing Evolutionary Algorithm (GOMEA) for discrete variables has been shown to be able to efficiently and effectively exploit the decomposability of optimization problems, especially in a grey-box setting, in which a solution can be efficiently updated after a modification of a subset of its variables....

A growing number of wireless devices and increasing traffic in the radio spectrum has pushed for alternatives to radio based communication. Among these, communication using visible light (VLC) has gained considerable momentum. The imminent adoption of energy efficient Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and the high data transmission rates offered by...

In commercial buildings, smart lighting control systems are applied to minimize the electrical energy consumption. These systems use occupancy and light sensor data to adapt artificial light in accordance with changing occupancy and daylight conditions. In these systems, the performance relies on a pre-calibration phase to achieve daylight...

Nowadays, we live in an era where high performance is in particular demand in a very broad variety of fields. For fulfilling these needs there is, a large selection of high performance computing platforms exists. These platforms vary in terms of architecture as well as their flexibility in terms of programming and programming models. Therefore,...

In the recent past, a new agile methodology, Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) has been developed which aims to describe a system in terms of behaviour, which helps stakeholders understand the system behaviour and in communication with project members. However, existing projects do not have the advantage of explaining the system in terms of...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have the potential to make quality education affordable and available to the masses and reduce the gap between the most privileged and the most disadvantaged learners worldwide. However, this potential is overshadowed by low completion rates, often below 15%. Due to the high level of autonomy that is required...

Comments play a vital role in the comprehension of source code. To aid software developers in code comprehension, tools have been designed for automatically generating comments. However, developers lack a tool that creates comments for integration tests. To further improve the process of code comprehension, a novel tool is proposed in this...

Indoor localization is a topic of significant interest for academic and in dustrial. For outdoors, we have Global Positioning System (GPS) working very well, but GPS does not work indoors and we spend more than 90% of the time indoors. Thus, there is a great need to find solution for this prob lem. Many technologies have been proposed for indoor...

Using clusters of servers and datacenters to process large numbers of data- and computation-intensive jobs is becoming mainstream. The need for large clusters is driven by the fact that many workloads are growing at a faster rate than the advances in single computer performance. To manage processing in a cluster of multiple computers, several...

Large enterprises and governments shift their long-running and critical operations to run in cloud environments. The on-demand business-critical workloads raise important challenges in datacenter operation, requiring efficient online scheduling of workloads with unprecendented dynamic behavior, yet under strict service level agreements (SLAs)....

Performance is a make-or-break quality for software. When making changes it is essential to ensure no performance regression has occurred i.e. the program performs more slowly or consumes more resources than previous versions. Tribler is the result of ten years scientific research in complex distributed systems. Over the course of years Tribler...
