    Containers form the basis of a middleware platform that suits the needs of platform‐as‐a‐service (PaaS) clouds, where application packaging and orchestration are key issues. This chapter introduces architecture requirements ...
  • Identifying Innovative Idea Proposals with Topic Models—A Case Study from SPA Tourism 

    Sottocornola G; Stella F; Symeonidis P; Zanker M; Krajger I; Faullant R; Schwarz E (Springer, 2019)
    This chapter builds on a dataset where online users of a spa platform participated in an online idea contest providing free-text descriptions of their proposals for spa services. A panel of domain experts annotated these ...
  • Preface 

    Lecca P (Springer, 2013)
  • Mechanistic models of astrocytic glucose metabolism calibrated on pet images 

    Lecca P; Lecca M (Springer, 2013)
    We presents two models of glucose metabolism in astrocytes based on ordinary differential equations calibrated on18 F-deoxyglucose PET images. The signals detected during physiological activation of the brain with18 ...
  • A model predicting rolling cells percentage in inflamed brain venules 

    Lecca P; Constantin G; Laudanna C; Priami C (Springer, 2013)
    We present a stochastic model of the lymphocytes recruitment in inflamed brain microvessels. The framework used is based on stochastic process algebras for mobile systems. The automatic tool used in the simulation is the ...
  • Deterministic Versus Stochastic Modelling in Biochemistry and Systems Biology 

    Lecca P; Laurenzi I; Jordan F (Woodhead Publishing, 2013)
    Stochastic kinetic methods are currently considered to be the most realistic and elegant means of representing and simulating the dynamics of biochemical and biological networks. Deterministic versus stochastic modelling ...

    Graus M; Ferwerda B; Schedl M; Willemsen M; Tkalcic M; Germanakos P (ACM, 2017)
    It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the first workshop on Theory-Informed User Modeling for Tailoring and Personalizing Interfaces (HUMANIZE), organized in conjunction with ACM's 2017 Intelligent User Interfaces ...
  • Cold Start Solutions For Recommendation Systems 

    Bakhshandegan Moghaddam F; Elahi M (IET, 2019)
    Recommendation systems are essential tools to overcome the choice overload problem by suggesting items of interest to users. However, they suffer from a major challenge which is the so-called cold-start problem. The ...
  • On Help and Interpersonal Control 

    Bottazzi E; Troquard N (Springer, 2015)
    Help is not much considered in the literature of analytic social philosophy. According to Tuomela (Cooperation – a philosophical study, Springer, 2000), when a helps an agent b (1) a contributes to the achievement of b’s ...
  • A Novel Strategy for Recommending Multimedia Objects and its Application in the Cultural Heritage Domain 

    Albanese M; d'Acierno A; Moscato V; Persia F; Picariello A (Information Science Reference, 2013)
    One of the most important challenges in the information access field, especially for multimedia repositories, is information overload. To cope with this problem, in this paper, the authors present a strategy for a recommender ...
  • Content-Based Multimedia Retrieval 

    Amato F; Greco L; Persia F; Poccia SR; De Santo A (Springer, 2015)
    Content-based multimedia information retrieval (IR) provides new models and methods for effectively and efficiently “searching” through the huge variety of media that are available in different kinds of repositories (digital ...
  • Constraint-Based Recommender Systems 

    Felfernig A; Friedrich G; Jannach D; Zanker M (Springer, 2015)
    Recommender systems provide valuable support for users who are searching for products in e-commerce environments. Research in the field long focused on rating-based algorithms supporting the recommendation of quality and ...
  • A Multimedia Summarizer Integrating Text and Images 

    d'Acierno A; Gargiulo F; Moscato V; Penta A; Persia F; Picariello A; Sansone C; Sperlì G (Springer, 2015)
