Information fragmentation is a pervasive problem which is felt in several stages of personal information management (PIM). As the example in the introduction to this special issue on PIM illustrates, even a seemingly simple decision, such as whether to say " yes " to an invitation, often depends upon a number of different kinds of information – information(More)
Extracts of Hypericum perforatum (HP) have been shown to be effective for the treatment of mild to moderate depression. Its mode of action has not been fully elucidated. An increase in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cortisol is frequently observed in depression. Studies have suggested that HP might alter brain cortisol and corticosterone through its(More)
Workshop Aim The workshop will focus on the challenges of data processing and management in networks of remote, wireless, battery-powered sensing devices (sensor networks). The power-constrained, lossy, noisy, distributed, and remote nature of such networks means that traditional data management techniques often cannot be applied without significant(More)
The past few years have seen substantial amounts of computer science research on sensor networks as they have the potential to bring an unprecedented level of access to the physical world. Other subfields of Computer Science have had a number of workshops on the topic. Also, there are now at least two major conferences – the These conferences have published(More)
Database needs are changing, driven by the Internet and increasing amounts of scientific and sensor data. In this article, the authors propose research into several important new directions for database management systems. A group of senior database researchers gathers every few years to assess the state of database research and to point out problem areas(More)
