    This paper presents an algebraic approach, meant to provide an access to XML (extensible markup language) components in the XML hierarchical trees. An adequate theoretical mechanism is critical for the creation of query languages that handle XML documents and is extremely important for the development and standardization of XML parsing process. The authors of this article propose an algebraic form... View full abstract»

    A virtual whiteboard is a common interface approach for supporting group processes. Built on the insights gained from previous studies, we built an application that is capable of supporting various creativity techniques based on a virtual whiteboard interface. A two-day pilot study indicated that collocated groups are able to effectively conduct collaborative creativity sessions with different cre... View full abstract»

    The enterprise architecture frameworks allow organizations to specify business processes, software systems, communications and information technologies and their relationships therein. What is further evident is a trend towards developing integrated software systems. The enterprise architecture integration framework (EAIF) is integration oriented, and it is composed by integration levels of the pr... View full abstract»

    BitTorrent and practical network coding are efficient methods for sharing files in a peer-to-peer network. Both face the problem to distribute a given file using peers with different and dynamic bandwidth and only temporal availability. For this, BitTorrent partitions the files and uses the upload and download of each peer. In addition to this, practical network coding uses a random linear combina... View full abstract»

    We describe QoSMap, an overlay construction mechanism which computes high quality overlay networks for applications having stringent constraints on hop-degrading QoS metrics and provides resilience against the Internetpsilas unpredictable network behavior. QoSMap implements three features to achieve the QoS and resiliency goals. In order to provide high QoS, it constructs overlay communication edg... View full abstract»

    Peer-to-peer (P2P) software as major Internet applications bring convenience and pleasure to users, while it becomes a nightmare for Internet service providers (ISPs) because they produce huge traffic on the network. The enormous traffic come from the fact that when P2P systems construct overlay networks, they ignore the underlying network topology, so most of the connections are between remote pe...

    A broadcast mode may augment peer-to-peer overlay networks with an efficient, scalable data replication function, but may also give rise to a virtual link layer in VPN-type solutions. We introduce a generic, simple broadcasting mechanism that operates in the prefix space of distributed hash tables without signaling. This paper concentrates on the performance analysis of the prefix flooding scheme.... View full abstract»

    Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems gained popularity and are responsible for a large share of today's Internet traffic. Nevertheless, their dynamic nature and the intended lack of control through central instances make their behavior unpredictable and, therefore, it is difficult to achieve a high level of Quality-of-Service for P2P traffic. Thus, peers are themselves responsible for dealing with these iss... View full abstract»

    The change in data types from few and small files with textual content to enormous amounts of unstructured data like images and videos provides new challenges for the systems storing and processing the data. In addition, the wide range of digital devices we surround us with, like mobile phones, laptops, and music players, all provide some amount of storage and processing capacity. We propose DeLig...

    Despite the abundant availability of protocols and application for peer-to-peer file sharing, several drawbacks are still present in the field. Among most notable drawbacks is the lack of a simple and interoperable way to share information among independent peer-to-peer networks. Another drawback is the requirement that the shared content can be accessed only by a limited number of compatible appl... View full abstract»
