Software’s structure profoundly affects its development and maintenance costs. Poor software’s structure may lead to well-known design flaws, such as large modules or long methods. A possible approach to reduce a module’s complexity is the Extract Method refactoring technique. This technique allows the decomposition of a large and complex method into smaller and simpler ones, while reducing the orig...
One of the main factors for achieving school success is related to the level of attention and interest that students manifest in the classroom. When in the classroom students perform tasks on electronic devices, and if the classes have a high number of students, the teacher does not have the idea if a student is really attentive and focused on the tasks defined (Pimenta et al.

This thesis aims to address prediction and classification tasks on online social net work data. The goal is to predict psycho-demographic - personality and demographic - traits by doing text emot...
An A356 alloy is a classic casting light alloy, which is able to be processed into complex geometrical shapes with tailored static and dynamic mechanical properties. As a promising material to reduce fuel and energy consumption in future vehicle designs, there is an interest in understanding the impact of heat treatments on the damping capacity of this alloy. The Granato–Lücke theory is used to detail th...
With the fast evolution of the internet over the last years, the top priority on software development has shifted from what? to when?. Reduced time-to-market is now the competitive edge that all companies strive for. The usage of container-based virtualization technologies keep the multiple environments where a development team works similar enough, that their work is made easier when devel oping and...
