Proceedings of the DigitalHeritage 2013 - Federating the 19th Int'l VSMM, 10th Eurographics GCH, and 2nd UNESCO Memory of the World Conferences, Plus Special Sessions fromCAA, Arqueologica 2.0 et al. English 2013 Scientific Information Systems (SIS) must move beyond data repositories and closed systems, to allow collaborations among different research disciplines, to include new types of data, to control data quality, and to enable semantic interoperability. Archaeological data include textual information, measures, sketches, photographies, 3D models, and a vast amount of links between data and historical information sources. We develop a formal model for ontology-based annotations that conforms to a semi-ring algebraic structure and we define a subset of algebraic operators to query annotations. We show how our approach is instantiated in a collaborative Web platform for the Burgundy Stone project. 0 0

CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2012 Although interoperability has always been a priority in e-learning, conventional Learning Management Systems are mostly geared towards the Standards for Learning Objects exchange and the integration among systems. The contingency for integration with other web applications and data is hardly foreseen. This prevents them, nowadays, from being flexible to adapt to the Linked Data standards emergence and the advent of Semantic Web in general, unless they radically change orientation. In contrast, Wikis, followed by Content Management Systems, proved to be more versatile in complying with the Semantic Web and Linked Data standards. These advancements, together with their modular architecture, turn Wikis and CMSs into a decent choice for modern e-learning solutions. MediaWiki and Drupal were customized and deployed in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki to assess their potential in exposing the University's learning resources on the Web of Linked Data, in accordance with the Linked Universities Initiative. On the occasion of these two deployments, a thorough comparison of their platforms' potentials to function as Learning Management Systems took place and is presented on this paper. 0 0
A student-centered collaborative learning environment for developing communication skills in engineering education Requena-Carrion J.

2010 IEEE Education Engineering Conference, EDUCON 2010 English 2010 Communication skills development is one of the main goals of engineering education. We propose an integrated student-centered collaborative learning environment for developing communication skills, using project-based learning methods and peer assessment. In our learning environment, projects are assigned to small groups of students under teacher supervision, documented in a wiki-editing tool and presented during a public poster session. By combining wiki entries and poster presentations, we intend to facilitate students (1) to gain access to the project of their peers and share their results, (2) to analyze and comment critically the project of their peers and provide them with feedback, and (3) to enhance their writing and oral skills. Previous experiences encourage us to promote this integrated learning environment. Wiki environments allowed students to improve the quality of their projects and to develop a critical attitude towards their projects and the projects of their peers. The poster session was found to be more dynamic than traditional oral presentations. Students got engaged in a more open and critical manner with the project of their peers, and students presenting their project had the chance to improve the quality of their presentation on the fly, by presenting their work several times in the duration of the session. In future courses, we will implement a learning environment that combines both wikibased and poster session approaches. We expect that the implementation of both approaches will help to develop the communication skills of engineering students. 0 0

EChallenges e-2010 Conference English 2010 In the KeyToNature project a user-centred and collaborative approach for metadata repository management was developed. KeyToNature is an EU project to enhance the knowledge of biodiversity by improving the availability of digital and non-digital media along with digital tools for the identification of living organisms throughout Europe. To improve the ability to search and access information, metadata are provided and integrated into a metadata repository. This paper presents a method utilizing web-based MediaWiki system as part of a low-tech interoperability and repository layer for data providers, end users, developers, and project partners. Because the level of technological expertise of the data providers varies greatly, a solution accessible for non-expert data providers was developed. The main features of this method are the automatic metadata repository management, and an ontological approach with ingestion workflows integrated into MediaWiki collaborative framework. Extensive user testing shows performance advantages of the method and attests usefulness in the application area. This practice-oriented method can be adopted by other projects aiming at collaborative knowledge acquisition and automatic metadata repository management, regardless of domain of discourse.

Model-aware wiki analysis tools: The case of HistoryFlow Diaz O.
Gorka Puente
WikiSym 2010 English 2010 Wikis are becoming mainstream. Studies confirm how wikis are finding their way into organizations. This paper focuses on requirements for analysis tools for corporate wikis. Corporate wikis differ from their grow-up counterparts such as Wikipedia. First, they tend to be much smaller. Second, they require analysis to be customized for their own domains. So far, most analysis tools focus on large wikis where handling efficiently large bulks of data is paramount. This tends to make analysis tools access directly the wiki database. This binds the tool to the wiki engine, hence, jeopardizing customizability and interoperability. However, corporate wikis are not so big while customizability is a desirable feature. This change in requirements advocates for analysis tools to be decoupled from the underlying wiki engines. Our approach argues for characterizing analysis tools in terms of their abstract analysis model (e.g. a graph model, a contributor model). How this analysis model is then map into wiki-implementation terms is left to the wiki administrator. The administrator, as the domain expert, can better assess which is the right terms/granularity to conduct the analysis. This accounts for suitability and interoperability gains. The approach is borne out for HistoryFlow, an IBM tool for visualizing evolving wiki pages and the interactions of multiple wiki authors. 0 0
Requirements semantics-driven aggregated production for on-demand service Wen B.

Jisuanji Xuebao/Chinese Journal of Computers Chinese 2010 Based on the existing technology for assembling service, related approaches including requirements semantic encapsulation, requirements semantic interoperability extending and requirements semantics-driven service customized manufacture are put forward. Large-scale and complex system exhibits adaptive feature, and evolutionary emergence of collective behaviors is its fundamental phenomena. This paper adopts stakeholders-driven requirements semantics acquiring technique for software services and combines with semantic wikis for supporting evolution and semantic annotating of requirements. The approach not only elicits the conventional documentary requirements through collaboration and interactive negotiation mechanism, but also can it process intelligent retrieve, requirements consistency check and reasoning for services requirements entity depending on requirements semantics and requirements element instantiation conducted by underlying requirements ontology of services. By choosing connecting ontologies as semantic carrier for service aggregation, software production will be focused on upper level semantic description rather than concrete service. Theoretical and empirical studying has proven the validity practicability of the proposed method. 0 0

2010 9th International Symposium on Electronics and Telecommunications, ISETC'10 - Conference Proceedings English 2010 This paper presents two collaborative Social-Software-driven approaches for the interoperability of multimedia resources used in KeyToNature project. The first approach, using MediaWiki as a low level interoperability framework is presented in our previous works. The second one, Semantic MediaWiki interoperability framework for multimedia resources is presented in this paper, and is still in progress. We are arguing that different approaches are needed, depending on the context and intention of multimedia resource use. 0 0
Semantic interoperability framework for Estonian public sector's eServices integration Tammet T.
Tomingas K.
Luts M.
Proceedings of the European Conference on Knowledge Management, ECKM English 2010 ESservices, based on automated data exchange in distributed technological and organizational environment, are an effective way to build cross-border, controlled information services. Processes of creation, integration, management, reuse, discovery and composition of eServices are not very efficient without understanding the meaning of information resources. Creation and management of human and machine readable semantics of heterogeneous and distributed information resources are more complicated than coordinated documentation process, and require new interoperability principles, architecture and infrastructure. This paper outlines the idea and architecture of the Estonian semantic interoperability initiative in the public sector. The paper presents a collaborative ontology engineering toolset and repository as a part of interoperability infrastructure, built with Semantic Mediawiki, to manage the semantics of information resources. 0 0

Workshop on current issues in predictive approaches to intelligence and security analytics: Fostering the creation of decision advantage through model integration and evaluation Sanfilippo A. ISI 2010 - 2010 IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Security Informatics: Public Safety and Security English 2010 The increasing asymmetric nature of threats to the security, health and sustainable growth of our society requires that anticipatory reasoning become an everyday activity. Currently, the use of anticipatory reasoning is hindered by the lack of systematic methods for combining knowledge- and evidence-based models, integrating modeling algorithms, and assessing model validity, accuracy and utility. The workshop addresses these gaps with the intent of fostering the creation of a community of interest on model integration and evaluation that may serve as an aggregation point for existing efforts and a launch pad for new approaches. 0 0

IEEJ Transactions on Electronics, Information and Systems Japanese; English 2009 This paper describes a prototype and its experimental evaluation of the chat system that offers cooperation support between discussion space and activity space in collaborative learning. In collaborative learning in the proposed system.students are divided into groups, carry out discussion on a study theme by chats, and create on-line reports in cooperative manner. The proposed cooperation support method aims at improving the level of cooperation among students and the effectiveness of the study by making group members grasp other member's study situation mutually through cooperation support in group member's utterance and report creation. We use Wiki as a tool for collaborative work in this research. Cooperation support displays the Wiki's updating time and contents on the chat system with activity cooperation support that offers a space for remote collaborative learning and allows a student to know about other students 'condition. In addition, the number of chat utterances was displayed, and other students' condition is easily grasped. 0 0
Augmenting Wiki system for collaborative EFL reading by digital pen annotations Chang C.-K. Proceedings - 2009 International Symposium on Ubiquitous Virtual Reality, ISUVR 2009 English 2009 Wikis are very useful for collaborative learning because of their sharing and flexible nature. Many learning activities can use Wiki to facilitate the processes, such as online glossaries, project reports, and dictionaries. Some EFL (English as a Foreign Language) instructors have paid attention to the popularity of Wiki. Although Wikis are very simple and intuitive for users with information literacy, Wikis need computing environment for each learners to edit Web pages. Generally, an instructor can only conduct a Wiki-based learning activity in a computer classroom. Although mobile learning devices (such as PDAs) for every learner can provide ubiquitous computing environment for a Wiki-based learning activity, this paper suggests another inexpensive way by integrating digital pen with Wiki. Consequently, a learner can annotate an EFL reading with his/her mother tongue by digital pen. After everyone finishes reading, all annotations can be collected into a Wiki system for instruction. Thus, an augmenting Wiki structure is constructed. Finally, learners' satisfactions about annotating in the prototype system are reported in this paper. 0 0
Comparison of middle school, high school and community college students' wiki activity in Globaloria-West Virginia (pilot year-two) Rebecca Reynolds
Caperton I.H.
WikiSym English 2009 Constructionist-learning researchers have long emphasized the epistemological value of programming games for learning and cognition. This study reports student experiences in a program of game design and Web 2.0 learning offered to disadvantaged West Virginia middle, high school and community college students. Specifically, the poster presents findings on the extent of student use of the Wiki for project management, teamwork and self-presentation of game design attributes, comparing results across 13 school pilot locations. Also presented are students' self-reported recommendations for possible improvements to the wiki. Results indicate that some locations were more active in their wiki use; the poster addresses location-specific implementation context factors that may have played a role in the variant results. 0 0
Fritz - Wiki technology for modeling and simulation (M&S) repositories Feinberg J.M.
Misch G.L.
Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization - Spring Simulation Interoperability Workshop 2009 English 2009 Alion Science and Technology recently funded the Wiki Consolidated Knowledge Engineering Development (WiCKED) internal research and development (IR&D) project for developing and applying wiki technology to implement modeling and simulation (M&S) knowledge repositories. Alion has operated managed, maintained, and reviewed DoD M&S repositories for more than ten years, and its scientists and management recognized the potential competitive advantages that could be realized by a new architectural approach. "Fritz" wiki, our initial development based on WiCKED technology, is showing great promise for M&S knowledge management applications. This paper presents and discusses some lessons learned during the initial parts of this effort with wikis, including their basic usefulness, the measures of success, and the potential advantages of lower cost, shorter schedule, and reduced risk. The nature of a wiki is free wheeling. The Wikipedia experience suggests that a wiki is most useful when large numbers of people can contribute to, as well as access, the information. While Wikipedia and similar sites have become excellent online tools, the authoritative nature of their entries can be difficult to ascertain, and the consistency of the metadata for entries is totally lacking. The first problem is compounded in the DoD M&S world by the need to restrict public access, restrict the types of entries, and restrict the contents of entries depending on the desired scope of access. The second problem indicates the need for, and clear benefits resulting from, using a consistent set of metadata in certain types of entries. This presentation utilizes a framework developed in a previous paper for evaluating a repository, including issues such as: what it will contain (scope), who will be allowed access to it, who populates it, who validates the information, and who manages (implements) it? These issues, which require serious thought about access and an evolving editorial policy, will be among those the paper details in light of our IR&D experience with Fritz. 0 0

29th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing 2008, ACRS 2008 English 2008 Remote sensing ontology is developed for not only integrating earth observation data, but also knowledge sharing and information transfer. Ontological information is used for data sharing service such as support of metadata deign, structuring of data contents, support of text mining. Remote sensing ontology is constructed based on Semantic MediaWiki. Ontological information are added to the dictionary by digitalizing text based dictionaries, developing "knowledge writing tool" for experts, and extracting semantic relations from authoritative documents by applying natural language processing technique. The ontology system containing the dictionary is developed as lexicographic ontology. Also, constructed ontological information is used for the reverse dictionary. 0 0
Wiki-based collaborative learning: Incorporating self-assessment tasks Ben Liu
Hejie Chen
He W.
WikiSym 2008 - The 4th International Symposium on Wikis, Proceedings English 2008 When assigning technological articles as the collaborative writing task, students may find that the available knowledge repositories leave little room for them to contribute and therefore write nothing. To provide guidelines for students to discover topics, as well as tools to practice problem solving skills, we integrated a computer assisted assessment module into the Mediawiki and employ self-tests as the collaborative tasks. In these task, item models are used to automatically generate test questions. The items deriving from a same model share a common structure; however, the randomly initialized parameters of the model make them differ from each other. These differences result in that the answers of an item are usually inapplicable to other items deriving from the same model. Therefore, examinees have to solve these generated items on a case by case basis. Further, how to solve questions deriving from certain models can be served as the topics about which students write articles. The wiki self-assessment system was used in a course on Computer Networks offered to junior students majored in computer science. Five self-test tasks were assigned to 98 students, and they were encouraged to write wiki pages to explain their solution methods. Evidence from this preliminary application indicates that the presented approach has a positive effect on learning outcomes. 0 1
Wikiful thinking Doyle B. EContent English 2008 The advantages and weakness of using wiki as a content and knowledge management tool are discussed. Wiki is economical as some tools are open source and free, and it collects knowledge, explicit and tacit very quickly. Wikipedia, one of the 10 busiest sites on the web, has been a great success with about 5 million registered editors and about 8 million articles in different languages. Wiki does not operate through the standards-based technology and content management best practices such as content reuse, modularity, structured writing, and information typing resulting in a lack of interoperability, poor metadata management, and little reusability within the wiki. The methods of wiki navigation includes the built-in and web-based search engine. Standardization of wiki includes the use of XHTML and a WYSIWYG editor interface for unsophisticated content contributors and having hidden structure to facilitate information retrieval. 0 1
MSG-052 knowledge network for federation architecture and design Ohlund G.
Lofstrand B.
Hassaine F.
Fall Simulation Interoperability Workshop 2007 English 2007 Development of distributed simulations is a complex process requiring extensive experience, in-depth knowledge and a certain skills set for the Architecture, Design, development and systems integration required for a federation to meet its operational, functional and technical requirements. Federation architecture and design is the blueprint that forms the basis for federation-wide agreements on how to conceive and build a federation. Architecture and design issues are continuously being addressed during federation development. Knowledge of "good design" is gained through hands-on experience, trial-and-error and experimentation. This kind of knowledge however, is seldom reused and rarely shared in an effective way. This paper presents an ongoing effort conducted by MSG-052 "Knowledge Network for Federation Architecture and Design" within the NATO Research and Technology Organisation (NATO/RTO) Modelling and Simulation group (NMSG). The main objective of MSG-052 is to initiate a "Knowledge Network" to promote development and sharing of information and knowledge about common federation architecture and design issues among NATO/PfP (Partnership for Peace) countries. By Knowledge Network, we envision a combination of a Community of Practice (CoP), various organisations and Knowledge Bases. A CoP, consisting of federation development experts from the NATO/PfP nations, will foster the development of state-of-the-art federation architecture and design solutions, and provide a Knowledge Base for the Modelling and Simulation (M&S) community as a whole. As part of the work, existing structures and tools for knowledge capture, management and utilization will be explored, refined and used when appropriate; for instance the work previously done under MSG-027 PATHFINDER Integration Environment provides lessons learned that could benefit this group. The paper will explore the concept of a Community of Practice and reveal the ideas and findings within the MSG-052 Management Group concerning ways of establishing and managing a Federation Architecture and Design CoP. It will also offer several views on the concept of operations for a collaborative effort, combining voluntary contributions as well as assigned tasks. Amongst the preliminary findings was the notion of a Wiki-based Collaborative Environment in which a large portion of our work is conducted and which also represents our current Knowledge Base. Finally, we present some of our main challenges and vision for future work. 0 0
