    • Toward Process Control from Formal Models of Transformable Manufacturing Systems 

      Bakker OJ; Chaplin JC; de Silva L; Felli P; Sanderson D; Logan B; Ratchev S (Elsevier, 2017)
      The automation and flexibility of production systems is a key step towards improved profitability and competitiveness in high labour cost areas, when producing high-complexity, low-volume products. In the Evolvable Assembly ...
    • Towards 3D-printed organic electronics: Planarization and spray-deposition of functional layers onto 3D-printed objects 

      Falco A; Petrelli M; Bezzeccheri E; Abdelhalim A; Lugli P (Elsevier B.V., 2016)
      The last years have seen a surge in the interest for “smart objects” obtained with the integration of electronics and custom designed structures. One of the possible approaches for the fabrication of such devices is 3D ...
    • Towards a Classification Schema for Development Technologies: an Empirical Study in the Avionic Domain 

      Taibi, D; Lenarduzzi, V; Dieudonne', L; Plociennik, C (IARIA, 2015)
      Software and hardware development organizations that consider the adoption of new methods, techniques, or tools often face several challenges, namely to: guarantee process quality, reproducibility, and standard compliance. ...
    • Towards a Cognitive Semantics of Types 

      Porello D; Guizzardi G (Springer, 2017)
      Types are a crucial concept in conceptual modelling, logic, and knowledge representation as they are an ubiquitous device to understand and formalise the classification of objects. We propose a logical treatment of types ...
    • Towards a component composition and interaction architecture for the web 

      Pahl C; Ward D (Elsevier, 2002)
      The Web is currently undergoing a change from a document- to a services-centered environment. This shift can be seen as a first step towards a component-centered environment. We shall explore requirements for a Web component ...
    • Towards a DecSerFlow declarative semantics based on computational logic 

      Chesani F; Mello P; Montali M; Storari S (2007)
      In this paper we exploit a computational logic-based framework, called SCIFF, for the formalization of DecSerFlow. DecSerFlow is a graphical, extendible high-level language for the declarative specification of service ...
    • Towards a deep learning model for hybrid recommendation 

      Sottocornola G; Stella F; Zanker M; Canonaco F (ACM, 2017)
      The deep learning wave is propagating through many research areas and communities. In the last years it quickly propagated to Recommendation Systems, a research area which aims to recommend items to users. Indeed, many ...
    • Towards a European Model of Social Work 

      Lorenz, W (Wiley: No OnlineOpen / Taylor & Francis (Routledge): STM, Behavioural Science and Public Health Titles, 2008)
      Despite being more intensely involved in European cooperation and exchange activities, social work in Europe still presents a picture of disunity. The present paper outlines the simultaneous processes of standardisation ...
    • Towards a Graphical Language for Process Modelling in Construction 

      Marengo E; Dellasega P; Montali M; Nutt W (CEUR Electronic Workshop Proceedings, 2016)
      To guarantee the success of a construction project, a detailed process model specification is essential. The peculiarities of the domain, like the high number of details, the participation of multiple parties with different ...
    • Towards a hybrid CMOS-imager with organic semiconductors as photoactive layer 

      Baierl D; Schmidt M; Scarpa G; Lugli P; Pancheri L; Stoppa D; Dalla Betta G (IEEE, 2011)
