The XINCA-STRES component-based infrastructure can help the developer prototype and build capture-and-access applications by providing abstractions to many of their shared characteristics. It supports live experiences at a higher abstraction level by offering metadata-enhanced components that support the preparation, capture, and review of information… (More)
The Contextractor is an XSLT-based transformation system that gathers information from extended UML models to produce XML Schemas that model the information captured by an application and define a query language that allows the submission of queries over the captured content.
Capture and access applications automate the capture of and the access to live experiences and are a main theme in the ubiquitous computing research area. Examples of such applications have been built in the educational, office and meeting domains, and most of them make extensive use of network communication, multimedia streaming and storage systems.… (More)
Capture & access applications exploit the ubiquitous computing paradigm – populate the environment with computational devices and applications to transparently assist people on their activities – to support the automatic capture of information in live experiences and generate corresponding documents that can be further stored, accessed and extended.… (More)
The representation of temporal relations in multimedia objects is based on models of time that allow the identification and the specification of temporal relations among different media, particularly those relations relevant to the process of multimedia synchronization. Initially, this paper discusses the use of HyTime for the specification of binary… (More)
The year 2014 marked an important shift in theWeb's history, as users started to spend more time surfing the web using mobile devices than using desktop computers.
