  • Decomposing Discussion Forums using User Roles 

    Chan, Jeffrey; Hayes, Conor (http://www.websci10.org, 2010)
    Discussion forums are a central part of Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0 infrastructures. The health and sustainability of forums is dependent on the information exchange behaviour of its members. Such behaviour needs to be ...
  • Developing a Dataset for Technology Structure Mining 

    QasemiZadeh, Behrang; Buitelaar, Paul; Monaghan, Fergal (IEEE, 2010)
    This paper describes steps that have been taken to construct a development dataset for the task of Technology Structure Mining. We have defined the proposed task as the process of mapping a scientific corpus into a ...
  • The Development of A Realistic Simulation Framework with OMNeT++ 

    Shu, Lei (IEEE, 2008)
    It is necessary to use simulation tools in the study of wireless network. The object-oriented modular discrete event network simulator, OMNeT++, can not only afford many network simulation but has strong GUI support and ...
  • Discovery of Optimized Web Service Configurations Using a Hybrid Semantic and Statistical Approach 

    Zaremba, Maciej; Migdal, Jacek; Hauswirth, Manfred (IEEE, 2009)
    We present a Semantic Optimized Service Discovery (Se- mOSD) approach capable of handling Web service search requests on a fine-grained level of detail where we augment semantic service descriptions with statistically built ...
  • A DRM Solution Based on Social Networks and Enabling the Idea of Fair Use 

    Grzonkowski, Slawomir; Ensor, Brian; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Gzella, Adam; Decker, Stefan; McDaniel, Bill (2007)
    Fair use policy allows legal owners to share products they bought with their acquaintance; it is based on the assumptions that the owners pass an original product and they cannot use it at the same time. In the digital ...
  • Dynamic Querying of Mass-Storage RDF Data with Rule-Based Entailment Regimes 

    Krennwallner, Thomas; Martello, Alessandra; Polleres, Axel (Springer, 2009)
    RDF Schema (RDFS) as a lightweight ontology language is gaining popularity and, consequently, tools for scalable RDFS inference and querying are needed. SPARQL has become recently aW3C standard for querying RDF data, ...
  • Dynamic Service Discovery through Meta-Interactions with Service Providers 

    Vitvar, Tomas; Zaremba, Maciej; Moran, Matthew (Springer, 2007)
    Dynamic discovery based on semantic description of services is an essential aspect of the Semantic Web services integration process. Since not all data required for service discovery can always be included in service ...
  • E-learning based on the Social Semantic Information Sources 

    Westerski, Adam; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Samp, Krystian; Woroniecki, Tomasz; Czaja, Filip; O'Nuallain, Caoimhin (2006)
    E-Learning is no longer just about the materials burned on CD-ROMs and sent across the country. With the potential offered by the Internet, there are new on-line courses emerging every day. However successful they are, ...
  • E-learning based on the Social Semantic Information Sources 

    Westerski, Adam; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Samp, Krystian; Woroniecki, Tomasz; Czaja, Filip; O'Nuallain, Caoimhin (2006)
    E-Learning is no longer just about the materials burned on CD-ROMs and sent across the country. With the potential offered by the Internet, there are new on-line courses emerging every day. However successful they are, ...
  • E-Learning on the Social Semantic Information Sources 

    Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Gzella, Adam; Dobrzanski, Jaroslaw; McDaniel, Bill; Woroniecki, Tomasz (2007)
    E-Learning grows on the fertile soil of the Internet technologies; it fails, however, to reach their full potential. With new, emerging technologies of the second generation Internet there is even more to be captured and ...
  • An Eigenvalue-Based Measure for Word-Sense Disambiguation 

    Hulpus, Ioana; Hayes, Conor; Greene, Derek (FLAIRS 2012, 2012)
    Current approaches for word-sense disambiguation (WSD) try to relate the senses of the target words by optimizing a score for each sense in the context of all other words' senses. However, by scoring each sense separately, ...
  • Entailment for Domain-restricted RDF 

    Polleres, Axel (Springer, 2008)
    We introduce domain-restricted RDF (dRDF) which allows to associate an RDF graph with a fixed, finite domain that interpretations for it may range over. We show that dRDF is a real extension of RDF and discuss impacts on ...
  • Establishing a distributed system for the simple representation and integration of diverse scientific assertions 

    Samwald, Matthias; Stenzhorn, Holger (Biomed, 2009)
    Information technology has the potential to increase the pace of scientific progress by helping researchers in formulating, publishing and finding information. There are numerous projects that employ ontologies and Semantic ...
  • Evaluation of Semantic and Social Technologies for Digital Libraries 

    Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Kruk, Ewelina (2008)
    Libraries are the tools we use to learn and to answer our questions. The quality of our work depends, among others, on the quality of the tools we use. Recently, the semantic web and social networking technologies are ...
  • Examination of the Impact of Emerging Technologies on eLearning 

    McDaniel, Bill; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard (Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education, 2007)
    eLearning has, to date, mostly been a matter of content being displayed on PCs running Windows, Linux, or MAC OS. Emerging technologies have recently, however, expanded the capabilities and scope of portable and mobile ...
  • Extending Community Ontology Using Automatically Generated Suggestions 

    Novacek, Vit; Dabrowski, Maciej; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Handschuh, Siegfried (AAAI Press, 2007)
    In this paper we propose an ontology (formal knowledge base) creation methodology based on integrating external ontologies into the one developed by a community of the do- main experts. We present the MarcOntX agent, a ...
  • Extending faceted navigation for RDF data 

    Oren, Eyal; Delbru, Renaud; Decker, Stefan (2006)
    Data on the Semantic Web is semi-structured and does not follow one fixed schema. Faceted browsing is a natural technique for navigating such data, partitioning the information space into orthogonal conceptual dimensions. ...
  • Extracting and Utilizing Social Networks from Log Files of Shared Workspaces 

    Nasirifard, Peyman; Peristeras, Vassilios; Hayes, Conor; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2009)
    Log files of online shared workspaces contain rich information that can be further analyzed. In this paper, log-file information is used to extract object-centric and user-centric social networks. The object-centric social ...
  • Federating Distributed Social Data to Build an Interlinked Online Information Society 

    Passant, Alexandre; Samwald, Matthias; Breslin, John; Decker, Stefan (2009)
    While research on the relation- ship between the Semantic Web and social media was originally motivated by the lack of semantics in mainstream Web 2.0 ser- vices, this vision can go much further, impacting society at large ...
  • Four Heuristics to Guide Structured Content Crawling 

    Umbrich, Jürgen; Harth, Andreas; Hogan, Aidan; Decker, Stefan (2008)
    Search engines focusing on particular media types face difficulties in discovering suitable URIs on the Web. Since the engines are only interested in a small fraction of the Web, a crawler should use heuristics to concentrate ...
