  • 2LIP: Filling the Gap between the Current and the Three-Dimensional Web 

    Jankowski, Jacek; Decker, Stefan (2009)
    In this article we present a novel approach, the 2-Layer Interface Paradigm (2LIP), for designing simple yet interactive 3D web applications, an attempt to marry advantages of 3D experience with the advantages of the ...
  • 3DWiki: The 3D Wiki Engine 

    Cobos, Yolanda; McDaniel, Bill; Decker, Stefan (2009)
    We demonstrate one of the potential paths of the evolution of wiki engines towards Web 3.0. We introduce 3dWiki - the 3D wiki engine, which was built according to 2-Layer Interface Paradigm (2LIP). It was developed ...
  • Accessing Cultural Heritage using the Web of Data 

    Jankowski, Jacek; Cobos, Yolanda; Hausenblas, Michael; Decker, Stefan (2009)
    Cultural Heritage (CH) is a vast domain, where sharing information is challenging. As a result, the global CH is distributed and heterogeneous. In this paper, we present the concept of the Web of Data as an approach to ...
  • ActiveRDF: Object-oriented semantic web programming 

    Oren, Eyal; Delbru, Renaud; Gerke, Sebastian; Haller, Armin; Decker, Stefan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2007)
    Object-oriented programming is the current mainstream programming paradigm but existing RDF APIs are mostly triple-oriented. Traditional techniques for bridging a similar gap between relational databases and object-oriented ...
  • Algorithms for Nilpotent Linear Groups 

    Rossmann, Tobias (2011-03-04)
    In this thesis, we develop practical algorithms for irreducibility and primitivity testing of finite nilpotent linear groups defined over various fields of characteristic zero, including number fields and rational function ...
  • Analysis and Implementation of Mixed-Mode Cohesive Zone Formulations for Cardiovascular Biomechanics Applications 

    Ó Máirtín, Éamonn (2013-02-18)
    A comprehensive theoretical analysis of potential-based and non-potential-based cohesive zone models (CZMs) under mixed-mode conditions is presented. Using the well established Xu-Needleman (XN) CZM, it is demonstrated ...
  • Analysis of the DNA damage response in model systems 

    Hamilton, Danielle (2014-07-24)
    The integrity of our DNA is constantly threatened by endogenous and exogenous sources of damage. In the absence of sufficient repair mechanisms, this damage can lead to mutations, potentially resulting in the development ...
  • Analyzing time-course microarray data using functional data analysis - a review 

    Coffey, Norma; Hinde, John (Statistical Applications in Genetics and Molecular Biology, 2011-05)
    Gene expression over time can be viewed as a continuous process and therefore represented as a continuous curve or function. Functional data analysis (FDA) is a statistical methodology used to analyze functional data ...
  • Annotation and Navigation in Semantic Wikis 

    Oren, Eyal; Delbru, Renaud; Möller, Knud; Handschuh, Siegfried (2006)
    Semantic Wikis allow users to semantically annotate their Wiki content. The particular annotations can differ in expressive power, simplicity, and meaning. We present an elaborate conceptual model for semantic annotations, ...
  • Anti-Inflammatory Gene Therapy for the Promotion of Implanted Stem Cell Survival in Infarcted Myocardium 

    Holladay, Carolyn (2011-04-13)
    Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the developed world and is responsible for approximately 36% of Irish mortality. Myocardial infarction (MI), which is literally the death of cardiac tissue due to ...
  • Approximating Query Completeness by Predicting the Number of Answers in DHT-based Web Applications 

    Karnstedt, Marcel; Hauswirth, Manfred; Sapkota, Brahmananda (2008)
  • Augmenting Social Media Items with Metadata using Related Web Content 

    Kinsella, Sheila (2012-01-23)
    The Web has shifted from a read-only medium where most users were solely consumers of information, to an interactive medium where collaborative technologies allow anyone to publish or edit content. In this environment, ...
  • Automatic Location of Services 

    Keller, Uwe; Polleres, Axel; Fensel, Dieter (2005)
    The automatic location of services that fulfill a given need is seen as a key step towards dynamic and scalable integration. In this paper we present a model for the automatic location of services that considers the static ...
  • Bioelectrochemical films on electrodes for application to biofuel cells 

    Rengaraj, Saravanan (2012-05-04)
    This thesis focuses on studies of both enzymatic (EFC) and microbial (MFC) fuel cells. In the enzymatic fuel cell studies, interactions between enzymes, osmium based complexes and redox polymers are characterized ...
  • A biomaterials approach to peripheral nerve repair 

    Daly, William (2014-04-09)
    Peripheral nerve injuries are a major clinical problem which currently affect over one million people worldwide. Transection injuries caused by workplace and home injuries, road traffic accidents and by intentional harm ...
  • The Boardscape: Creating a Super Social Network of Message Boards 

    Breslin, John; Bojars, Uldis (AAAI, 2007)
    A Web-based message board or forum is an online area where discussions are held by many Internet users on a variety of subjects. More recently, online social networks have been created for various purposes: job searching, ...
  • Browsing Linked Data with Fenfire 

    Hastrup, Tuukka; Cyganiak, Richard; Bojars, Uldis (2008)
    A wealth of information has recently become available as browsable RDF data on the Web, but the selection of client applications to interact with this Linked Data remains limited. We show how to browse Linked Data with ...
