  • Building a Semantic Web Search Engine: Challenges and Solutions 

    Harth, Andreas; Hogan, Aidan; Umbrich, Jürgen; Decker, Stefan (2008)
    Current web search engines return links to documents for user-specified keywords queries. Users have to then manually trawl through lists of links and glean the required information from documents. In contrast, semantic ...
  • Cataloguing and Linking Life Sciences LOD 

    Hasnain, Ali; Fox, Ronan; Deus, Helena F.; Decker, Stefan (2012)
    The Life Sciences Linked Open Data (LSLOD) Cloud is currently comprised of multiple datasets that add high value to biomedical research. The ability to navigate through these datasets in order to derive and discover new ...
  • A Content Analysis: How Wikipedia Talk Pages Are Used

  • A Context Lifecycle For Web-Based Context Management Services 

    Hynes, Gearoid; Reynolds, Vinny; Hauswirth, Manfred (2009)
    During the development of context aware applications a con- text management component must traditionally be created. This task re- quires specialist context lifecycle management expertise and hence can be a significant ...
  • CORAAL - Towards Deep Exploitation of Textual Resources in Life Sciences 

    Novacek, Vit; Groza, Tudor; Handschuh, Siegfried (Springer Verlag, 2009)
    Prominent biomedical literature search tools like ScienceDirect, PubMed Central or MEDLINE allow for efficient retrieval of resources based on key words. Due to vast amounts of data available in life sciences, key word ...
  • 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 ...
  • D-FOAF - Security Aspects in Distributed User Management System 

    Grzonkowski, Slawomir; Gzella, Adam; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Woroniecki, Tomasz (IEEE, 2005)
    The contemporary Internet offers various services ranging from electronic newspapers to on- line social networks. To authorize themselves, users have to register to on-line services. However, most of the ...

    WWW provides a large number of services, which often require identification of it¿s users. This has lead to the fact that today users have to maintain a large number of different credentials for different websites - ...
  • Data Portability with SIOC and FOAF 

    Bojars, Uldis; Passant, Alexandre; Breslin, John (2008)
    Data portability has become an important requirement on the Social Web. This paper describes how data and social network portability can be achieved by building upon existing Semantic Web developments such as SIOC and FOAF. ...

    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)
