Efficient Relational Storage and Retrieval of XML Documents
A data and an execution model that allow for efficient storage and retrieval of XML documents in a relational database and provides clear and intuitive semantics, which facilitates the definition of a declarative query algebra is presented. Expand
Querying XML documents made easy: nearest concept queries
The tree structure of XML documents is exploited to equip users with a powerful tool, the meet operator, that lets them query databases with whose content they are familiar, but without requiring knowledge of tags and hierarchies. Expand
ISOcat: Corralling Data Categories in the Wild
This paper shortly describes the new data model for data categories that will be introduced in this implementation of the Data Category Registry, and goes on with a sketch of the standardization process. Expand
A Data Category Registry- and Component-based Metadata Framework
A computer-supported framework that combines the use of controlled vocabularies, managed by a data category registry, with a component-based approach, where the categories can be combined to yield complex metadata structures to overcome the rule of metadata schism. Expand
ISOcat: remodelling metadata for language resources
The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, is creating a state-of-the-art web environment for the ISO TC 37 metadata registry and designers visualise future interactivity among the DCR, reference registries and ontological knowledge spaces. Expand
Linking to Linguistic Data Categories in ISOcat
The RDF quad store based Relation Registry RELcat is introduced, which enables ontological relationships between data categories not supported by ISOcat and thus adds an extra level of linguistic knowledge to the efforts to mimic the same approach for RDF-based resources. Expand
CLARIN Concept Registry: The New Semantic Registry
The most important other characteristics of the new (Open)SKOS-based registry, as well as the management procedures used to prevent a recurrent proliferation of entries, as was the case with ISOcat are described. Expand
Explicit Semantics for Enriched Documents. What do ISOcat, RELcat and SCHEMAcat have to offer?
The flexible semantic network thus created can be used to help users of enriched documents, and actually any other type of linguistic resource, to interpret the linguistic notions and to find semantically close and thus possibly interesting resources. Expand
