Language Bindings to XML
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Fabio Simeoni, David Lievens, Richard Connor, Paolo Manghi
Issue Date:January 2003
pp. 19-27
<p>By preserving application semantics, XML bindings improve program specification, verification, and optimization. SNAQue makes it all simple and flexible.</p>
Structural Entropic Difference: A Bounded Distance Metric for Unordered Trees
Found in: Similarity Search and Applications, International Workshop on
By Richard Connor, Fabio Simeoni, Michael Iakovos
Issue Date:August 2009
pp. 21-29
We show a new metric for comparing unordered, tree-structured data. While such data is increasingly important in its own right, the methodology underlying the construction of the metric is generic and may be reused for other classes of ordered and partiall...
A Persistent Hyper-Programming System
Found in: Data Engineering, International Conference on
By Graham Kirby, Ron Morrison, Dave Munro, Richard Connor, Quintin Cutts
Issue Date:April 1997
pp. 585
We demonstrate the use of a hyper-programming system in building persistent applications. This allows program representations to contain type-safe links to persistent objects embedded directly within the source code. The benefits include improved efficienc...
A New Probabilistic Ranking Model
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR '13)
By Morgan Harvey, Richard Connor, Robert Moss
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 109-112
Over the years a number of models have been introduced as solutions to the central IR problem of ranking documents given textual queries. Here we define another new model. It is a probabilistic model and has no term inter-dependencies, thus allowing calcul...
Towards a universal information distance for structured data
Found in: Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on SImilarity Search and APplications (SISAP '11)
By Fabio Simeoni, Michael Iakovos, Richard Connor, Robert Moss
Issue Date:June 2011
pp. 69-77
The similarity of objects is one of the most fundamental concepts in any collection of complex information; similarity, along with techniques for storing and indexing sets of values based on it, is a concept of ever increasing importance as inherently unor...
Question-based group authentication
Found in: Proceedings of the 20th conference of the computer-human interaction special interest group (CHISIG) of Australia on Computer-human interaction: design: activities, artefacts and environments (OZCHI '06)
By Ann Nosseir, Karen Renaud, Richard Connor
Issue Date:November 2006
pp. 277-283
There are various situations where a distinction needs to be made between group members and outsiders. For example, to protect students in chat groups from unpleasant incidents caused by intruders; or to provide access to common domains such as computer la...
Hybrid applications over XML: integrating the procedural and declarative approaches
Found in: Proceedings of the fourth international workshop on Web information and data management (WIDM '02)
By David Lievens, Fabio Simeoni, Paolo Manghi, Richard Connor
Issue Date:November 2002
pp. 9-14
We discuss the design of a quasi-statically typed language for XML in which data may be associated with different structures and different algebras in different scopes, whilst preserving identity. In declarative scopes, data are trees and may be queried wi...
