  • Cost-Aware Processing of Similarity Queries in Structured Overlays 

    Karnstedt, Marcel; Hauswirth, Manfred (2006)
    Large-scale distributed data management with P2P systems requires the existence of similarity operators for queries as we cannot assume that all users will agree on exactly the same schema and value representations and ...
  • Building a Heterogeneous Network of Digital Libraries on the Semantic Web 

    Piotrowski, Piotr; Cygan, Mariusz; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Westerski, Adam; Samp, Krystian; Decker, Stefan (2006)
    Ever since computer networks have become popular libraries tend to join into federations. Each federated digital library, apart from delivering discovery and navigation features within their own database allows users to ...
  • 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, ...

  • SVM: Semantic Versioning Manager 

    Groza, Tudor; Handschuh, Siegfried (2006)
    Knowledge domains and their semantic representations via ontologies are typically subject to change in practical applications. There- fore, especially in distributed environments, change management for ontologies becomes ...
  • SAGE: An Ambient Intelligent Framework for Manufacturing 

    Hynes, Gearoid; Monaghan, Fergal; Thai, VinhTuan; O'Sullivan, David (2006)

  • Semantic Wikis for Personal Knowledge Management 

    Oren, Eyal; Breslin, John; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2006)
    Wikis are becoming popular knowledge management tools. Analysing knowledge management requirements, we observe that wikis do not fully support structured search and knowledge reuse. We show how Semantic wikis address the ...
  • Semantic Versioning Manager: Integrating SemVersion in Protégé 

    Groza, Tudor; Handschuh, Siegfried (2006)
    Knowledge domains and their semantic representations via ontologies are typically subject to change in practical applications. Additionally, engineering of ontologies often takes place in distributed settings where multiple ...
