    The purpose of this paper is to give a topological view to the spatial clustering focusing on density based clustering with its variations. We propose the definition of cluster topology; define clusters as various kinds of topological connected sets. More in this paper, the topological cluster forming algorithms are presented. Then we reform some typical algorithms with the new topological view. E... View full abstract»

    Knowledge management has become a prominent subject for organizations, but often characterization and treatment of the information that flows in a well-defined design work process are muddled. We argue that context is the fundamental information resource for better understanding and carrying on activities and interactions. We propose an environment to support the cycle of creating and dealing with... View full abstract»

    Real-time collaborative editing systems allow a group of users to view and edit the same document at the same time from geographically dispersed sites connected by communication networks. Consistency maintenance in concurrent access of shared objects is one of the key issues in designing these types of systems. This paper proposes a P2P-based locking schema for concurrency control in internet-base... View full abstract»

    Hybrid P2P technique recently has become more and more popular for collaborative systems. However, reliability is issue of major importance in the server end of these systems. TMR technique for Collaborative System (CS-TMR) is presented in this paper to improve the server reliability. This software schema incorporates three homogeneous microcomputers and provides the fault-tolerant function throug... View full abstract»

  • Separating Data and View: Support View-wandering Between Different Trades during Engineering Design

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):36 - 41

    Based on the analysis of the two forms during collaboration of engineering design, which are named as time collaboration and space collaboration, the paper introduces a TDM (total data model) centered framework to support both time and space collaboration of hybrid CAD applications. By separating data and view the framework supports designers' view-wandering between different trades so that they c... View full abstract»

    Network data collection is the important part in network management, and the system design involves a lot of concurrency and communication problems. Therefore a formal approach was presented to the formal analysis of network data collection, based on Hoare's communication sequential process (CSP) and some theoretical results of network formal reaction. Then the formal analysis to network data coll... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (362 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we present an optimization framework for querying XML data by caching frequent query patterns. In this framework, frequent query patterns are mined online from user queries, and these query results are cached for future use. The mining process of frequent query patterns is launched automatically when user queries meet predefined requirements. To deal with queries that are similar to... View full abstract»

    With the rapidly increasing popularity of XML as a data format, there is a large demand for efficient XML structural matching techniques. Normally, data in XML are stored in a tree-like structure where nodes (with data) are located using the path relations in the tree. This paper proposes a coding policy named path code to accelerate an important category of structure matching in XML, namely the P... View full abstract»

  • A Model Driven based Aspect Oriented Model Weaving Framework for Distributed System

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (301 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    MDA and AOP techniques are used in combination with each other in software design. In MDA, one can use AOP's aspect-oriented concept to create a model so as to separate the concerns. The aspects in AOP can be used as models in MDA to be transformed, checked, queried and maintained. The model-driven based aspect-oriented model weaving framework (MAMW) is a form of model transformation, which separa... View full abstract»

    Current systems for real-time distributed CSCW are largely rooted in traditional GUI-based groupware. These groupware applications generally lag behind in features and compatibility with single-user applications. As a result, having to learn new GUIs for a sporadic task discourages many users. Many researchers agree that TUIs (tangible user interfaces) are especially suited for collocated collabor... View full abstract»

    Collaborative graphics editing systems in ubiquitous environment support users to join and leave the collaboration dynamically at any time. The shared workspace state of these users will be inconsistent for the modification of the other session members. It is therefore necessary to initialize the application instance of the latecomer with the current state. In this paper, we propose a rejoining sc... View full abstract»

    Communities of practice (CoPs) encourage the exchange of experiences within organizations, but there is a risk involved in regard to the quality of participation. For this reason, it is important to provide a means for the community to be able to recognize the reliability and usefulness of the participation of individuals involved. This paper presents a proposal for the use of reputation systems i... View full abstract»

    With the advent of collaborative distributed work, it is necessary to study and adapt the traditional models of these new platforms. Various models of design and architecture were set up but the effectiveness of a collaborative platform lies on the capacity which it will have to make really collaborative work i.e. to place the actors in a situation nearest possible to a virtual room of examination...
