Kjeldskov, Jesper, Gibbs, Martin R., Vetere, Franks, Howard, Steve, Pedell, Sonja, Mecoles, Karen and Bunyan, Marcus (2004): Using Cultural Probes to Explore Mediated Intimacy. In Australasian Journal of Information Systems, 11 (2) pp. 102-115. Available online

Intimacy is a crucial element of domestic life that has received insufficient attention from Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) researchers despite their rapidly growing interest in the design of interactive technologies for domestic use. Intimate acts differ from other activities, and there are unexplored opportunities to develop interactive technologies to support these acts. This paper presents the first phase of a two-part study exploring the potential of interactive technologies to support intimate relationships. We contribute to this uncharted domain of HCI research a literature review of concepts useful in understanding intimacy and methods for its investigation. We conclude with preliminary results and suggestive design ideas for interactive technologies intended to support intimacy.

Verner, June, Cox, Karl A., Bleistein, Steven J. and Cerpa, Narciso (2005): Requirements Engineering and Software Project Success: An Industrial Survey in Australia and the U.S.. In Australasian Journal of Information Systems, 13 (1) pp. 225-238.

Because requirements engineering is recognized as critical to successful software projects we surveyed a number of software practitioners regarding their software development practices during recent software projects. Relationships between requirements practices and software project outcomes enable us to better understand requirements issues and their relationship with project success. We asked three sets of questions directly related to requirements issues: 1) requirements practices, 2) the sponsor and customers/users, and 3) project management. Our respondents were from business organizations in the U.S. and Australia, and were almost exclusively involved in in-house software development. The most significant factors from each question set were: 1) the requirements were good, 2) there was a high level of Customer/User involvement, and 3) the requirements were managed effectively. Overall, the best predictor of project success was that the requirements were good together with the requirements were managed effectively (93% of projects were predicted correctly). Our survey shows that effective project management is fundamental to effective requirements engineering.

Zhang, Hao Lan, Raikundalia, Gitesh K., Zhang, Yanchun and Yu, Xinghuo (2009): Application of Multi-agent Technology to Information Systems: An Agent-based Design Architecture for Decision Support Systems. In Australasian Journal of Information Systems, 15 (2) p. 91107. Available online

One of the most difficult issues in building efficient Information Systems (IS) is the integration of these systems with the organization's other systems. This issue is particularly acute for Decision Support Systems (DSSs). To become more effective and efficient, a DSS must have an open structure to adapt to the dynamic environment. However, current IS, especially DSSs, tend to rely excessively on traditional System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and this places limitations on current systems' infrastructures. The emergence of multi-agent technology addresses this issue and its applications to IS are becoming highly efficient. In this paper, we introduce a Matrix-Agent connection design, called Agent based Open Connectivity for Decision Support Systems (AOCD), which balances the manageability and flexibility in a system and maximizes system performance.
