1 Self-organizing Structured P2P Systems In the P2P community a fundamental distinction is made among unstructured and structured P2P systems for resource location. In unstructured P2P systems in principle peers are unaware of the resources that neighboring peers in the overlay networks maintain. Typically they resolve search requests by flooding(More)
We tackle the problem of entity linking for large collections of online pages; Our system, ZenCrowd, identifies entities from natural language text using state of the art techniques and automatically connects them to the Linked Open Data cloud. We show how one can take advantage of human intelligence to improve the quality of the links by dynamically(More)
This paper describes a novel approach for obtaining semantic interoperability among data sources in a bottom-up, semi-automatic manner without relying on pre-existing, global semantic models. We assume that large amounts of data exist that have been organized and annotated according to local schemas. Seeing semantics as a form of agreement, our approach(More)
Benchmarking is an essential aspect of any database management system (DBMS) effort. Despite several recent advancements, such as pre-configured cloud database images and database-as-a-service (DBaaS) offerings, the deployment of a comprehensive testing platform with a diverse set of datasets and workloads is still far from being trivial. In many cases,(More)
This paper addresses the problem of building scalable semantic overlay networks. Our approach follows the principle of data independence by separating a logical layer, the semantic overlay for managing and mapping data and metadata schemas, from a physical layer consisting of a structured peer-to-peer overlay network for efficient routing of messages. The(More)
In CIDR 2009, we presented a collection of requirements for SciDB, a DBMS that would meet the needs of scientific users. These included a nested-array data model, sciencespecific operations such as regrid, and support for uncertainty, lineage, and named versions. In this paper, we present an overview of SciDB’s key features and outline a demonstration of(More)
In this paper, we describe a main memory hybrid database system called HYRISE, which automatically partitions tables into vertical partitions of varying widths depending on how the columns of the table are accessed. For columns accessed as a part of analytical queries (e.g., via sequential scans), narrow partitions perform better, because, when scanning a(More)
The rise of GPS and broadband-speed wireless devices has led to tremendous excitement about a range of applications broadly characterized as “location based services”. Current database storage systems, however, are inadequate for manipulating the very large and dynamic spatio-temporal data sets required to support such services. Proposals in(More)

Information and communication infrastructures underwent a rapid and extreme decentralization process over the past decade: From a world of statically and partially connected central servers rose an intricate web of millions of information sources loosely connecting one to another. Today, we expect to witness the extension of this revolution with the wide(More)
