As reasoning with large amounts of data together with ontological knowledge is becoming an increasingly more pertinent issue, we will give in this chapter an overall introduction to some well-known ontology repositories, including native stores and database based stores, and highlight strengths and limitations of each store. We take Minerva as an example to(More)
Web-based collaboration (eCollaboration) is becoming increasingly popular. The crucial first step of a consulting collaboration is expert finding. This paper describes the FindXpRT project for finding experts via rules and taxonomies. We implemented rules for a client finding an expert to collaborate with, for an expert’s decision making on whether to(More)
The wide scale usage of OWL for the formalization of real-world ontologies is currently influenced by important limitations which concern both its expressivity and the efficiency of OWL specific reasoning tools. While the expressivity limitations may be overcame by extending the OWL language (e.g. with rules), the reasoning with such heterogeneous knowledge(More)
Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) is a key technique for embedded systems to exploit multiple voltage and frequency levels to reduce energy consumption and to extend battery life. There are many DVS-based algorithms proposed for periodic and aperiodic task models. However, there are few algorithms that support the sporadic task model. Moreover, existing(More)
An unresolved issue in SWRL (the Semantic Web Rule Language) is whether the intended semantics of its RDF representation can be described as an extension of the W3C RDF semantics. In this paper we propose to make the model-theoretic semantics of SWRL compatible with RDF by interpreting SWRL rules in RDF graphs. For dealing with SWRL/RDF rules, we regard(More)
Efficient application scheduling is critical for achieving high performance in heterogeneous computing (HC) environments. Because of its importance, there are many researches on this problem and various algorithms have been proposed. Duplication-based algorithm is a kind of famous algorithm to solve scheduling problem, which achieve high performance on(More)

The B lymphocyte stimulator (BAFF) is a novel member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) ligand family which is important in B lymphocyte maturation and survival. Here, a recombinant form of the extracellular domain of the BAFF (hsBAFF) was expressed in Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) under the control of a T7 promoter. The resulting insoluble bodies were(More)
The Health Level 7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) is widely accepted as the format for electronic clinical document. With the rich ontological references in CDA documents, the ontology-based semantic query could be performed to retrieve CDA documents. In this paper, we present iSMART (interactive Semantic MedicAl Record reTrieval), a prototype system(More)
This paper presents the open source reference implementation of RuleML based on modular XML Schema definitions and bidirectional OO jDREW interpreters written in Java. For the family of RuleML sublanguages, schema modularization and RDF rules are discussed. The central bidirectional interpreters are introduced via jDREW principles, and explained w.r.t. OO(More)
