    • Algorithms for Layout of Disconnected Graphs 

      Dogrusoz, U. (2000)
      We present efficient algorithms for the layout of disconnected objects in a graph (isolated nodes and components) for a specified aspect ratio. These linear and near-linear algorithms are based on alternate-bisection and ...
    • Assessment methods and how teachers and students view them in a computer science course at Uppsala University 

      Ezel, M.C. (2010)
      I have examined concepts of assessments and aimed to see differences between teachers and students opinions. I created a questionnaire and sent it to three groups in CS department at Uppsala University. These groups were ...
    • A compound graph layout algorithm for biological pathways 

      Dogrusoz, U.; Giral, E.; Cetintas, A.; Civril, A.; Demir, E. (Springer, 2004)
      We present a new compound graph layout algorithm based on traditional force-directed layout scheme with extensions for nesting and other application-specific constraints. The algorithm has been successfully implemented ...
    • ConceptMap: mining noisy web data for concept learning 

      Golge, E.; Duygulu, P. (Springer Verlag, 2014)
      We attack the problem of learning concepts automatically from noisy Web image search results. The idea is based on discovering common characteristics shared among subsets of images by posing a method that is able to organise ...
    • A Contextualist Analysis of Insults 

      Berkovski, Y. S. (Springer Verlag, 2017)
      For a predicate expression F contained in a sentence S (‘x is F’) to count as an insult, it should be used in a situation having a number of contextual elements. There should be an audience to whom the utterance of S is ...
    • The effect of video tutorials on learning spreadsheets 

      Aydinol, A.B.; Gültekin Ö. (2010)
      In this study a video tutorial for spreadsheet use (Excel) will be prepared by two undergraduate students by using a recorder and applied on a group of students to understand how effective this kind of a tutorial is to ...
    • Exact algorithms for a task assignment problem 

      Kaya, K.; UÇar, B. (2009)
      We consider the following task assignment problem. Communicating tasks are to be assigned to heterogeneous processors interconnected with a heterogeneous network. The objective is to minimize the total sum of the execution ...
    • In their words: Student feedback on an international project collaboration 

      Chidanandan, A.; Russell-Dag L.; Laxer, C.; Ayfer, R. (2010)
      In this paper, we describe a collaborative course experience between students from universities in the USA and Turkey. Student teams worked together on a software engineering project for a non-profit organization based in ...
    • Keeping the pace in CS-1 through the use of CMS 

      Kültür, C. (2009)
      In this poster, it is aimed to share the experience of using course management systems (CMS) in a CS-1 course. The aim was to focus on the individual needs of students while learning programming. Creating a social online ...
    • On moments of discrete phase-type distributions 

      Dayar, T. (2005)
      Recently, an efficient and stable method to compute moments of first passage times from a subset of states classified as safe to the other states in ergodic discrete-time Markov chains (DTMCs) has been proposed. This paper ...
    • Practical threshold signatures with linear secret sharing schemes 

      Bozkurt I.N.; Kaya, K.; Selçuk, A.A. (2009)
      Function sharing deals with the problem of distribution of the computation of a function (such as decryption or signature) among several parties. The necessary values for the computation are distributed to the participating ...
    • Prefetch throttling and data pinning for improving performance of shared caches 

      Ozturk O.; Son, S.W.; Kandemir, M.; Karakoy, M. (2008)
      In this paper, we (i) quantify the impact of compilerdirected I/O prefetching on shared caches at I/O nodes. The experimental data collected shows that while I/O prefetching brings some benefits, its effectiveness reduces ...
    • Turkey: a report on computer graphics education 

      Özgüç, B. (Technews, 1996)
      In a formal or an informal manner, computer graphics has been a field of research and education since the early 1970s in Turkey. The earlier examples of academic research work came from Istanbul Technical University and ...
