A data model, called the entity-relationship model, is proposed. This model incorporates some of the important semantic information about the real world. A special diagrammatic technique is introduced as a tool for database design. An example of database design and description using the model and the diagrammatic technique is given. Some implications for data integrity, information retrieval, and data manipulation are discussed. The entity-relationship model can be used as a basis for… Expand
A Design for Coordinated and Logics-mediated Conceptual Modelling
TLDR
An architectural design for a tool that would help to integrate heterogeneous conceptual models and link them with ontologies, based on clear semantic specifications and with tractable algorithms is proposed. Expand
Visual Modelling of and on Tangible User Interfaces
TLDR
The study showed that it is possible to model a process using a TUI and the test candidate feedback did not lead to the conclusion that the modelling was cumbersome or impractical, and concluded that VCL is not yet mature enough to enable its general applicability in a wide variety of settings.

Schema Integration : How to Integrate Static and Dynamic Database Schemata
Schema integration is the task of integrating several local schemata into one global database schema. It is a complex, error-prone and time consuming task. Problems arise in recognizing and resolviExpand
Modelo genérico de relacionamentos na organização da informação jurídica e legislativa
TLDR
This research had the main objective of proposing a Generic Model of Relationship (GMR), based in a simple constructs which permitted the establishment of relationships between concepts and information units, and its application in the legislative and legal information domains. Expand
A form based meta-schema for information and knowledge elicitation
The uni-level description: a uniform framework for managing structural heterogeneity
TLDR
This dissertation describes a new framework called the Uni-Level Description (ULD) that can accurately store and accommodate information from a broad range of data models and presents a query and transformation language for accessing and converting information among heterogeneous sources. Expand
Projeto de dados em bancos de dados distribuídos
TLDR
This work studies the problem of designing the data distribution for distributed databases from the coceptual level, using the well-known semantic model EntityRelationship, to make the conceptual level as living entity throughout the design process and also during the database life-time. Expand
Semantic data modeling of hypermedia associations
TLDR
The experience suggests that an integrated semantic object-oriented database paradigm appears to be superior to purely relational, semantic, or object- oriented methodologies for representing the structurally complex interrelationships that arise in hypermedia. Expand
IS Discontinuance : tracking down users' motivational journey from amotivated to motivated and back in crowdsourced software testing
TLDR
The research results show that there are both extrinsic and intrinsic motivational factors that affect individual user’s decision to continue in the last stage of the usage life cycle – what makes individuals discontinue the use of a certain crowdsourced software engineering service. Expand
LAP revisited: Articulating information as social relation
The language action perspective (LAP) has contributed with a pragmatic understanding of business processes and information systems (IS). It originated in the early 80’s based on pragmaticallyExpand

The two major approaches to data base technology may be termed the relational or set theoretic, and the data structured or procedural, and there are obviously differences, but there are also similarities. Expand
On the semantics of the relational data model
TLDR
A data model is discussed that takes into account basic semantic properties that object types and relationships among them apparently have in the real world, and permits us to analyze the ideas behind the relational theory more precisely, in particular the meaning of functional dependency and normalization.
