    The content-based publish-subscribe (pub-sub) paradigm for system design is becoming increasingly popular, offering unique benefits for many data-intensive applications. Coupled with peer-to-peer technology, it can serve as a central building block for developing data-dissemination applications deployed over a large-scale network infrastructure. A key open problem in creating large-scale content-b... View full abstract»

    Content providers are naturally distributed and produce large amounts of new information every day. Peer-to-peer information filtering is a promising approach that offers scalability, adaptivity to high dynamics, and failure resilience. The authors developed two approaches that utilize the chord distributed hash table as the routing substrate, but one stresses retrieval effectiveness, whereas the ... View full abstract»

  • A Taxonomy of QoS-Aware, Adaptive Event-Dissemination Middleware

    Event broker networks - scalable versions of the publish-subscribe paradigm - act as peer-to-peer overlays on broker nodes. Various frameworks support different overlay topologies and routing schemes for event dissemination, but attention is now turning to the nonfunctional attributes (such as quality of service) of such systems. Although many research efforts are starting to address the need for ... View full abstract»

  • Toward Recommendation Based on Ontology-Powered Web-Usage Mining

    Content adaptation on the Web reduces available information to a subset that matches a user's anticipated needs. Recommender systems rely on relevance scores for individual content items; in particular, pattern-based recommendation exploits co-occurrences of items in user sessions to ground any guesses about relevancy. To enhance the discovered patterns' quality, the authors propose using metadata... View full abstract»

  • Dynamic Load Sharing in Peer-to-Peer Systems: When Some Peers Are More Equal than Others

    Object caching and replication are the primary mechanisms for addressing load balancing in peer-to-peer systems. In structured P2P networks, object popularity is an important challenge because it can adversely impact both the request and forwarding loads in the network. To balance loads across P2P networks, the authors propose a method for dynamically updating routing tables to balance the load in... View full abstract»

    Most Web applications exchange data as XML, but they create and process this data with languages that don't have native support for XML. With appropriate middleware, XQuery can dramatically simplify this process, treating all data sources as though they were XML. This article shows how to use XQuery for native XML processing and data integration, briefly explores other technologies used in the sam... View full abstract»

    This article describes the challenges of Internet voting defined here as casting an electronic national or state direct election ballot from a location other than a polling station. The widely used terms "electronic voting" or "e-voting" represent the highly publicized (and controversial) use of special electronic devices at polling stations. Our interest here is the next step in governance - remo... View full abstract»

  • Whose Name Is It, Anyway? Decentralized Identity Systems on the Web

    A new form of personal identity is emerging on the Web. Decentralized identification protocols are a departure from traditional distributed authentication approaches developed for the Internet. From a technical perspective, they're quite similar to distributed systems based on public-key infrastructures or federated identity systems, such as those proposed by the Liberty Alliance, or Microsoft's P...

  • Relationship Web: Blazing Semantic Trails between Web Resources

    Using keywords as inputs to search engines and receiving documents as responses remains the prevalent way to access information on the Web. Although a shift toward entity awareness is a fairly recent trend in information access, such methods remain devoid of semantics, which are increasingly recognized as the lynchpin of search, integration, and analysis. We argue that relationships are at the hea... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the author propose viewing a program as a collection of "free" objects, each of which has its own thread of control and executes its operations within atomic transactions. Such objects would communicate by asynchronous message passing with futures - objects that encapsulate the results of server invocations and let clients retrieve them while hiding the actual state of readiness fro...

  • No Science without Semantics

    Computer science often faces the criticism that it isn't actual science. Doing science means using the scientific method, which includes reporting results so that others can repeat and verify them. The problem with the computer science community is the lack of shared terms with precise semantics. When a researcher reports phenomenal results that can't be replicated, the author might be viewed as a... View full abstract»
