    Datalog as a Parallel General Purpose Programming Language

    The increasing available parallelism of computers demands new programming languages that make parallel programming dramatically easier and less error prone. It is proposed that datalog with negation and timestamps is a suitable basis for a general purpose programming language for sequential, parallel and distributed computers. This paper develops a fully...

    The Language of Certain Conflicts of a Nondeterministic Process

    The language of certain conflicts is the most general set of behaviors of a nondeterministic process, which certainly lead to a live-lock or deadlock when accepted by another process running in parallel. It is of great use in model checking to detect livelocks or deadlocks in very large systems, and...

    Implementing an Event-driven Service-Oriented Architecture in TIP

    Many mobile devices have a density of services, many of which are context or location-aware. To function, many of these services have to collaborate with other services, which may be located in many different places and networks. There is often more than one service suitable for the task at hand....

    Efficient Multi-label Classification for Evolving Data Streams

    Many real world problems involve data which can be considered as multi-label data streams. Efficient methods exist for multi-label classification in non streaming scenarios. However, learning in evolving streaming scenarios is more challenging, as the learners must be able to adapt to change using limited time and memory. This paper...

    Contextual Queries and Situated Information Needs of Mobile Users

    The users of mobile devices increasingly use networked services to address their information needs. Questions asked by mobile users are strongly influenced by contextual factors such as location, conversation and activity. The authors report on a diary study performed to better understand mobile information needs. Participants' diary entries are used...
