In ontology-based data access (OBDA), an ontology is connected to autonomous, and generally pre-existing, data repositories through mappings, so as to provide a high-level, conceptual view over such data. User queries are posed over the ontology, and answers are computed by reasoning both on the ontology and the mappings. Query answering in OBDA systems is(More)
The migration process is a cause of physical and social stressors that may lead to mental health problems, particularly in children. In Italy, there are few studies about migrant children's mental health; thus, the aim of this study is to compare the prevalence and types of emotional and behavioral problems in migrant schoolchildren to those of native(More)
In this paper we introduce the notion of mapping-based knowledge base (MKB) to formalize the situation where both the extensional and the intensional level of the ontology are determined by suitable mappings to a set of (relational) data sources. This allows for making the intensional level of the ontology as dynamic as traditionally the extensional level(More)
A deep understanding of the characteristics of sex offenders may serve to improve clinical prevention and treatment programs. Mostly, however, this knowledge can aid in the creation of better re-education and rehabilitation programs as well as criminological treatment. In prison systems outside of Italy, the use of treatment programs specifically designed(More)
In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in juvenile sex offenders showing that this population is highly heterogeneous. The aim of the present study was to identify possible different profiles that could help understand the motivation behind offending, comparing 31 Juvenile Sexual Offenders (JSOs), 31 Juvenile Sexual Non Offenders (JSNOs) and(More)
In this paper we introduce the notion of mapping-based knowledge base (MKB), to formalize those ontology-based data access (OBDA) scenarios where both the extensional and the intensional level of the ontology are determined by suitable mapping assertions involving the data sources. We study reasoning over MKBs in the context of Hi(DL-LiteR), a higher-order(More)
