    Gennari, R; Dodero, G; Janes, A (2012)
    Culture and education should be for all, and this is even more felt in a period of crisis where private resources diminish. In particular, involving children in academia is a way of raising awareness of children, their ...
  • Justified recommendations based on content and rating data 

    Symeonidis P; Nanopoulos A; Manolopoulos Y (ACM, 2008)
    Providing justification to a recommendation gives credibility to a recommender system. Some recommender systems (Amazon.com etc.) try to explain their recommendations, in an effort to regain customer acceptance and trust. ...
  • Kappa-Join: Efficient Execution of Existential Quantification in XML Query Languages 

    Brantner, M; Helmer, S; Kanne, CC; Moerkotte, G (Springer, 2006)
    XML query languages feature powerful primitives for formulating queries, involving comparison expressions which are existentially quantified. If such comparisons involve several scopes, they are correlated and, thus, become ...
  • Key Challenges in Early-Stage Software Startups 

    Giardino C; Bajwa SS; Wang X; Abrahamsson P (Springer, 2015)
    Software startups are newly created companies designed to grow fast. The uncertainty of new markets and development of cutting-edge technologies pose challenges different from those faced by more mature companies. In this ...
  • KISS MIR: Keep It Semantic and Social Music Information Retrieval 

    Dridi, A; Kacimi, M (KDIR, 2015)
    While content-based approaches for music information retrieval (MIR) have been heavily investigated, user- centric approaches are still in their early stage. Existing user-centric approaches use either music-context or ...
  • Knowledge-enriched Data Management 

    Calvanese D (Schloss Dagstuhl, 2016)
    The working group identified four important practical challenges: 1. Develop personalized and context-aware data access and management tools. Data in this case is highly heterogenous, multi-model and multi-modal. Here we ...

  • La sostenibilità come elemento fondamentale di valore nelle fasi preliminari della progettazione 

    Maccioni L; Borgianni Y (Politecnico di Milano, 2017)
    La produzione ed il consumo di massa, guidati unicamente da fattori economici, hanno avuto effetti negativi sulle sfere sociali ed ambientali. La necessità di implementare nuove strategie di innovazione rivolte ad orientare ...
  • Labeling the Frames of a Video Stream with Interval Events 

    Persia F; Bettini F; Helmer S (IEEE, 2017)
    We propose a framework for detecting medium-level events referring to intervals of frames of a video stream. The detected events can serve as input for an earlier developed framework detecting high-level surveillance events. ...
  • Language-independent clone detection applied to plagiarism detection 

    Brixtel R; Fontaine M; Lesner B; Bazin C; Robbes R (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Clone detection is usually applied in the context of detecting small-to medium scale fragments of duplicated code in large software systems. In this paper, we address the problem of clone detection applied to plagiarism ...
  • A Large-Scale Empirical Study on Self-Admitted Technical Debt 

    Bavota G; Russo B (ACM, 2016)
    Technical debt is a metaphor introduced by Cunningham to indicate "not quite right code which we postpone making it right". Examples of technical debt are code smells and bug hazards. Several techniques have been proposed ...
  • A layered framework for pattern-based ontology evolution 

    Javed M; Abgaz YM; Pahl C ([s.n.], 2011)
    The challenge of ontology-driven modelling of information components is well known in both academia and industry. In this paper, we present a novel approach to deal with customisation and abstraction of ontology-based model ...
  • Layered patterns in modelling and transformation of service-based software architectures 

    Barrett R; Pahl C (Springer, 2006)
    Service-oriented architecture is a recent paradigm for architectural design. The software engineering aspects in this context, that have not been sufficiently addressed, are software evolution and software migration. ...
  • The LDOS-PerAff-1 Corpus of Face Video Clips with Affective and Personality Metadata 

    Tkalčič M; Tasič J; Košir A (Multimodal-Corpora.org, 2009)
