      Publishing information on the Semantic Web using common formats enables data to be linked together, integrated and reused. In order to fully leverage the potential for interlinking data by reusing existing schemas, an ...
    • JeromeDL - Adding Semantic Web Technologies to Digital Libraries 

      Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2005)
      In recent years more and more information has been made available on the Web. High quality information is often stored in dedicated databases of digital libraries, which are on their way to become expanding islands of well ...
    • JeromeDL and FOAFRealm - Taking Advantage of Semantic Social Collaborative Filtering in Digital Libraries 

      Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Decker, Stefan (2005)
      In this paper, we present FOAFRealm, a user management library based on social networking and FOAF metadata, and its deployment in JeromeDL, a digital library with semantics. We will demonstrate the most important ...
    • KonneXSALT: First Steps Towards a Semantic Claim Federation Infrastructure 

      Groza, Tudor; Handschuh, Siegfried; Möller, Knud; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2008)
      Dissemination, an important phase of scientific research, can be seen as a communication process between scientists. They expose and support their findings, while discussing claims stated in related scientific publications. ...
    • Linked Biomedical Dataspace: Lessons Learned integrating Data for Drug Discovery 

      Hasnain, Ali; Kamdar, Maulik; Deus, Helena; Mehdi, Muntazir; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2014)
      The increase in the volume and heterogeneity of biomedical data sources has motivated researchers to embrace Linked Data (LD) technologies to solve the ensuing integration challenges and enhance information discovery. As ...
    • Linked cancer genome atlas database 

      Padmanabhuni, Shanmukha S.; Decker, Stefan (2013)
    • A linked data platform for finite element biosimulations 

      Mehdi, Muntazir; Khan, Yasar; Freitas, Andre; Jares, Joao; Decker, Stefan; Sahay, Ratnesh (ACM, 2015-09-16)
      Biosimulation models have been recently introduced to understand the exact causative factors that give rise to impairment in human organs. Finite Element Method (FEM) provides a mathematical framework to simulate dynamic ...
    • On the need of integrating social media channels and open source software repositories 

      Iqbal, Aftab; Decker, Stefan (IEEE, 2015)
      The growing interest in the usage of social media channels have attracted the open source software community to adopt an identity in order to disseminate project-related information to a wider audience. We foresee the need ...
    • On the Ostensibly Silent 'W' in OWL 2 RL 

      Hogan, Aidan; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2009)
      In this paper, we discuss the draft OWL 2 RL proable from the perspective of applying the constituent rules over Web data. In particular, borrowing from previous work, we discuss (i) optimisations based on a separation ...
