    The need to develop a system for dealing with the transparency analysis of financial reports has pushed companies to look for possible solutions to store their data in a reliable and trustworthy database, that enables all ...
  • An Exploration of Cognitive Shifting in Writing Code 

    Fronza I; Hellas A; Ihantola P; Mikkonen T (ACM, 2019)
    Programming is considered a demanding task that requires focusing on detail at code level. Students learning to program need to learn to think like a programmer, which involves coming up with plans needed to solve problems, ...
  • The design of TurnTalk for the scaffolding of balanced conversations in groups of children 

    Melonio A; Rizvi M (Springer, 2017)
    The proper management of conversation among children is pivotal for any group activity with them. Socio-emotional learning curricula developed experimented activities for teaching children conversation skills, which can ...
  • Prompter: Turning the IDE into a self-confident programming assistant 

    Ponzanelli L; Bavota G; Di Penta M; Oliveto R; Lanza M (2016)
    Developers often require knowledge beyond the one they possess, which boils down to asking co-workers for help or consulting additional sources of information, such as Application Programming Interfaces (API) documentation, ...
  • Planning for a Single Agent in a Multi-Agent Environment Using FOND 

    Muise C; Felli P; Miller T; Pearce AR; Sonenberg L (IJCAI/AAAI Press, 2016)
    Single-agent planning in a multi-agent environment is challenging because the actions of other agents can affect our ability to achieve a goal. From a given agent's perspective, actions of others can be viewed as ...
  • Fast Computation of Continental-Sized Isochrones 

    Bolzoni P; Helmer S; Lachish O (Springer, 2016)
    We propose an approach to speed up the computation of isochrones, which are maps showing the reachability of locations given a starting point and a time constraint. The core idea of our technique is to materialize large ...
  • Lossless Selection Views under Conditional Domain Constraints 

    Feinerer I; Franconi E; Guagliardo P (2015)
    A set of views defined by selection queries splits a database relation into sub-relations, each containing a subset of the original rows. This decomposition into horizontal fragments is lossless when the initial relation ...
  • CoPMod: Support for Construction Process Modeling 

    Marengo E; Nutt W; Perktold M (CEUR-WS, 2018)
    CoPMod is a proof-of-concept tool for supporting a collaborative construction process modeling approach that has been developed in a research project and tested in real construction projects. In the tests, the approach was ...
  • Cooperation wordle using pre-attentive processing techniques 

    Fronza I; Janes A; Sillitti A; Succi G; Trebeschi S (IEEE, 2013)
    Developer turnover can result in a major problem when developing software. Senior developers leaving the team cause a loss of knowledge; on the other hand, new developers need some time to become fully productive. In this ...
  • “Failures” to be celebrated: an analysis of major pivots of software startups 

    Bajwa S; Wang X; Nguyen Duc A; Abrahamsson P (Springer New York LLC, 2017)
    In the context of software startups, project failure is embraced actively and considered crucial to obtain validated learning that can lead to pivots. A pivot is the strategic change of a business concept, product or the ...
  • RecSys '17 : Proceedings of the Eleventh ACM Conference on Recommender Systems 

    Cremonesi P; Ricci F; Berkovsky S; Tuzhilin A (ACM, 2017)

  • On the reaction to deprecation of 25,357 clients of 4+1 popular Java APIs 

    Sawant A; Robbes R; Bacchelli A (IEEE, 2016)
    Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are a tremendous resource-that is, when they are stable. Several studies have shown that this is unfortunately not the case. Of those, a large-scale study of API changes in the ...
  • Emotions and personality in personalized systems 

    de Gemmis M; De Carolis N; Košir A; Tkalčič M (Scuola Iad, 2016)
  • 100+ Metrics for Software Startups-A Multi-Vocal Literature Review 

    Kemell K; Wang X; Nguyen-Duc A; Grendus J; Tuunanen T; Abrahamsson P (CEUR-WS, 2018)
    Metrics can be used by businesses to make more objective decisions based on data. Software startups in particular are characterized by the uncertain or even chaotic nature of the contexts in which they operate. Using data ...
  • Snapshot Semantics for Temporal Multiset Relations 

    Dignös A; Glavic B; Niu X; Böhlen M; Gamper J (2019)
    Snapshot semantics is widely used for evaluating queries over temporal data: temporal relations are seen as sequences of snapshot relations, and queries are evaluated at each snapshot. In this work, we demonstrate that ...
  • Synthesising process controllers from formal models of transformable assembly systems 

    de Silva L; Felli P; Sanderson D; Chaplin JC Logan B; Ratchev S (2019)
    When producing complex and highly customisable products in low volumes (or in ‘batch sizes of one’), automation of production systems is critical for competitiveness and profitability in high labour-cost economies. To ...
  • OBDA Constraints for Effective Query Answering 

    Hovland D; Lanti D; Rezk M; Xiao G (Springer, 2016)
    In Ontology Based Data Access (OBDA) users pose SPARQL queries over an ontology that lies on top of relational data-sources. These queries are translated on-the-fly into SQL queries by OBDA systems. Standard SPARQL-to-SQL ...
  • A Generalized Framework for Ontology-based Data Access 

    Botoeva E; Calvanese D; Cogrel B; Corman J; Xiao G (Springer, 2018)
    The database (DB) landscape has been significantly diversified during the last decade, resulting in the emergence of a variety of non-relational (also called NoSQL) DBs, e.g., XML and JSON-document DBs, key-value stores, ...
  • Parallel Behavior Composition for Manufacturing 

    Felli P; Logan B; Sardina S (IJCAI, 2016)
    A key problem in the manufacture of highlycustomized products is the synthesis of controllers able to manufacture any instance of a given product type on a given production or assembly line. In this paper, we extend classical ...
