Mobile Querying of Online Semantic Web Data for Context-Aware Applications
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By William Van Woensel,Sven Casteleyn,Elien Paret,Olga De Troyer
Issue Date:November 2011
pp. 32-39
Mobile devices are increasingly multifunctional and personal, providing mobile applications with the necessary user information to achieve personalization. At the same time, detection technologies let such devices find nearby physical entities and thus map...
ATTAC-L: A modeling language for educational virtual scenarios in the context of preventing cyber bullying
Found in: 2013 IEEE 2nd International Conference on Serious Games and Applications for Health (SeGAH)
By Frederik Van Broeckhoven,Olga De Troyer
Issue Date:May 2013
pp. 1-8
Cyber bullying (bullying via electronic communication tools) is a relatively recent phenomenon that especially occurs among early adolescents. As cyber bullying may have a serious impact on the mental (and physical) well-being of victims, it is important t...
A generic approach for on-the-fly adding of context-aware features to existing websites
Found in: Proceedings of the 22nd ACM conference on Hypertext and hypermedia (HT '11)
By Olga De Troyer, Sven Casteleyn, William Van Woensel
Issue Date:June 2011
pp. 143-152
More and more, mobile devices act as personal information managers and are able to obtain rich contextual information on the user's environment. Mobile, context-aware web applications can exploit this information to better address the needs of mobile users...
Visual generative behavior patterns to facilitate game development
Found in: Proceedings of the 2009 Conference on Future Play on @ GDC Canada (FuturePlay '09)
By Bram Pellens, Frederic Kleinerman, Olga De Troyer
Issue Date:May 2009
pp. 13-14
The worldwide videogame and interactive entertainment industry revenue is expected to reach over $50 billion in 2009 [2]. The majority of the effort in game development revolves around content creation and many resources are spent on it. Game companies con...
Applying semantic web technology to feature modeling
Found in: Proceedings of the 2009 ACM symposium on Applied Computing (SAC '09)
By Frederic Kleinermann, Lamia Abo Zaid, Olga De Troyer
Issue Date:March 2009
pp. 1-5
Feature models are models used to capture differences and commonalities between software features, enabling the representation of variability within software. There are many variations of feature models and different notations are often used to represent t...
CoDePA: a conceptual design pattern approach to model behavior for X3D worlds
Found in: Proceedings of the 13th international symposium on 3D web technology (Web3D '08)
By Bram Pellens, Frederic Kleinermann, Olga De Troyer
Issue Date:August 2008
pp. 1-1
The development of dynamic X3D/VRML virtual worlds is not an easy task. Adding the behavior to a virtual world is most often the bottleneck of the development process, especially when it comes to more complex behavior. This paper describes a tool-supported...
Intuitively specifying object dynamics in virtual environments using VR-WISE
Found in: Proceedings of the ACM symposium on Virtual reality software and technology (VRST '06)
By Bram Pellens, Frederic Kleinermann, Olga De Troyer
Issue Date:November 2006
pp. 334-337
Designing and building Virtual Environments is not an easy task, especially when it comes to specifying object behavior where either knowledge about animation techniques or programming skills are required. With our approach, VR-WISE, we try to facilitate t...
Preface to AEWSE'06
Found in: Workshop proceedings of the sixth international conference on Web engineering (ICWE '06)
By Florian Daniel, Geert-Jan Houben, Maristella Matera, Olga De Troyer, Peter Plessers, Sven Casteleyn
Issue Date:July 2006
pp. 9-es
Current Web Applications are volatile in nature, and require (frequent) changes of content, functionality, semantics, structure, navigation, presentation or implementation. Often, the application is somehow engineered at design time to be able to adapt to ...
Generating semantic annotations during the web design process
Found in: Proceedings of the 6th international conference on Web engineering (ICWE '06)
By Olga De Troyer, Peter Plessers, Sven Casteleyn
Issue Date:July 2006
pp. 91-92
An important milestone in the evolution of the Web is the Semantic Web: a Web in which the semantics of the available content and functionality is made explicit. Web design methods, originally aimed at offering the designer a well-structured, systematic ap...
Accessibility: a Web engineering approach
