  • Storytelling 

    Mastellotto L; Burton G (Zeroseiup, 2018)
    Drawing on Bruner´s concept of narrative understanding, we acknowledge that stories function as a powerful tool to pass on knowledge in a social context and that the human brain is cognitively predisposed to understand, ...
  • Dwelling in difference: narratives of arrival and accommodation 

    Mastellotto L (2018)
    At the intersection of life writing and travel writing, ‘relocation narratives’ form a distinct subgenre of travel memoirs concerned with the everyday experiences of travellers who become settlers abroad through a process ...
  • Experimental assembly reveals ecological drift as a major driver of root nodule bacterial diversity in a woody legume crop 

    Ramoneda J; Le Roux JJ; Frossard E; Frey B; Gamper HA (2020)
    Understanding how plant-associated microbial communities assemble and the role they play in plant performance are major goals in microbial ecology. For nitrogen-fixing rhizobia, community assembly is generally driven by ...
  • Secure E-government web services 

    Mitrakas A; Hengeveld P; Polemi D; Gamper J (Idea Group Publishing, 2007)
    As e-government applications are coming of age, security has been gradually becoming more demanding a requirement for users, administrators, and service providers. The increasingly widespread use of Web services facilitates ...
  • Similarity of chemotherapy histories based on imputed values 

    Khayati M; Anderson JM; Böhlen MH; Gamper J; Mitterer M (2012)
    The comparison of time series of multivariate data is a long-standing problem in many applications in the clinical domain. We propose two approaches to retrieve from a hospital data warehouse the k patients P1, ⋯, Pn with ...
  • Sequenced event set pattern matching 

    Cadonna B; Gamper J; Böhlen MH (ACM, 2011)
    Event pattern matching is a query technique where a sequence of input events is matched against a complex pattern that specifies constraints on extent, order, values, and quantification of matching events. The increasing ...
  • Annie Hawes's Ligurian Memoirs: Navigating Identity and Place in Transnational Relocation 

    Mastellotto L (Edizioni Sinestesie, 2019)
    At the intersection of life writing and travel writing, “relocation narratives” form a distinct subgenre of travel memoirs concerned with the everyday experiences of travellers who become settlers abroad through a process ...
  • The Expatriate Life 

    Mastellotto L (Routledge, 2020)
    This chapter seeks to expand an understanding of ‘expatriate’ by examining the defining choice to live elsewhere as one guided not only by aesthetic concerns but also by an ethical impulse to remake one’s life in accordance ...
  • Theta-constrained multi-dimensional aggregation 

    Akinde M; Böhlen MH; Chatziantoniou D; Gamper J (2011)
    The SQL:2003 standard introduced window functions to enhance the analytical processing capabilities of SQL. The key concept of window functions is to sort the input relation and to compute the aggregate results during a ...
  • Windowed pq-grams for approximate joins of data-centric XML 

    Augsten N; Böhlen MH; Dyreson C; Gamper J (2012)
    In data integration applications, a join matches elements that are common to two data sources. Since elements are represented slightly different in each source, an approximate join must be used to do the matching. For XML ...
  • Diltheys Traum: Vom Haben einer Weltanschauung 

    Lüfter R (Springer VS, 2020)
    Der Autor stellt anhand von Diltheys Abhandlung Traum die spezifischen Charakteristiken dar, die eine Weltanschauung aufweisen muss. Ohne sie kann kein Wissen erworben oder ein historisches Bewusstsein erlangt werden, z. B. ...
  • Relocation Narratives 'Made in Italy': Self and Place in Late-Twentieth Century Travel Writing 

    Mastellotto L (UEA e-prints, 2014)
    At the intersection of life writing and travel writing, relocation narratives form a distinct subgenre of contemporary travel memoirs concerned with the inter-subjective and intra-subjective experiences of travellers who ...
  • MOUNA: Mining opinions to unveil neglected arguments 

    Kacimi El Hassani M; Gamper J (ACM, 2012)
    A query topic can be subjective involving a variety of opinions, judgments, arguments, and many other debatable aspects. Typically, search engines process queries independently from the nature of their topics using a ...
  • Workshop for doctoral students in Fuzzy-Based Systems 

    Gamper J; Moser B (Springer, 1993)
    This one-day-workshop held in conjunction with the FLAI’93 conference is intended to enhance the personal and professional development of Ph.D.-level students who are working in the field of fuzzy-based systems. It will ...
  • Prototype of web-based OSTAR application for itinerary planning in tourism (http://ostar.unibz.it/) 

    Bolzoni P; Gamper J; Helmer S; Mitterer H; Wellenzohn K (2014)
  • Finding k-dissimilar paths with minimum collective length 

    Chondrogiannis T; Bouros P; Gamper J; Leser U; Blumenthal DB (ACM, 2018)
    Shortest path computation is a fundamental problem in road networks. However, in many real-world scenarios, determining solely the shortest path is not enough. In this paper, we study the problem of finding k-Dissimilar ...
  • Period Index: A Learned 2D Hash Index for Range and Duration Queries 

    Behrend A; Dignös A; Gamper J; Schmiegelt P; Voigt H; Rottmann M; Kahl K (ACM, 2019)
    Today, most commercial database systems provide some support for the management of temporal data, but the index support for efficiently accessing such data is rather limited. Existing access paths neglect the fact that ...
  • Individualized Hiking Time Estimation 

    Pitman A; Zanker M; Gamper J; Andritsos P (IEEE, 2012)
    Route planning algorithms attempt to find the optimum path between two nodes in a graph, where a cost function specifies a weight for each edge. In many situations cost is related to distance or time. While time estimates ...
  • Query Time Scaling of Attribute Values in Interval Timestamped Databases 

    Dignös A; Böhlen M; Gamper J (IEEE, 2013)
    In valid-time databases with interval timestamping each tuple is associated with a time interval over which the recorded fact is true in the modeled reality. The adjustment of these intervals is an essential part of ...
