The use of abstraction concepts for representing and structuring documents

  title={The use of abstraction concepts for representing and structuring documents},
  author={Andreas R. Dengel and Nelson Mendonça Mattos},
Due to the amount of documents available in modern offices, it is necessary to provide a multitude of methods for the structuring of knowledge, i.e., abstraction concepts. In order to achieve their uniform representation, such concepts should be considered in an integrated fashion to allow concise descriptions free of redundancy. In this paper, we present our approach towards an integration of methods of knowledge structuring. For this purpose, our view of abstraction concepts is briefly…

Deductive Planning and Plan Reuse in a Command Language Environment
A deductive planning system currently being developed as the kernel of an intelligent help system that consists of a deductive planner and a plan reuse component and with that provides planning from first as well as planning from second principles.


Integration of document representation, processing and management
This paper describes a way for document representation and proposes an approach towards an integrated document processing and management system that can be considered as an ideal extension of the human clerk, making his tasks in information processing easier.
Modeling with KRISYS: the Design Process of DB Applications Reviewed
This paper shows how the user can employ KRISYS to model some real world situations, thereby demonstrating that the abstraction concepts are at the focal point of the mentioned incremental modeling process.
Knowledge based document classification supporting integrated document handling
An experimental office system currently being developed at Olivetti research integrates two major requirements of office work: content based document retrieval and mail distribution that closes the gap between electronic document entry systems and processing of (semi-) structured document content.
ANASTASIL: A Hybrid Knowledge-Based System for Document Layout Analysis
A knowledge-based system for the identification of the different regions of a document image that uses a hybrid, modular knowledge representation, a so called geometric tree being its essential part to perform a best-first search in combination with a "hypothesize & test"- strategy.
Semantic data models
The generic properties of semantic data models are described and a representative selection of models that have been proposed since the mid-1970s are presented.
Generalization/Specialization as a Basis for Software Specification
The methodology applies uniformly to the various components of such systems, such as data classes, transactions, exceptions, and user interfaces, and its goal is the systematic and structured description of highly detailed world models.
The semantic data model: a modelling mechanism for data base applications
The semantic data model (SDM) has been designed as a natural application modelling mechanism that can capture and express the structure of an application environment that corresponds to the principal intensional structures naturally occurring in contemporary data base applications.
Composite objects revisited
The new results on the use of composite objects as a unit of not only versions, physical clustering and concurrency control, but also authorization are described.
High Level Document Analysis Guided by Geometric Aspects
This article proposes an approach to identify the layout of a document page by dividing it recursively into nested rectangular areas and uses it as a basis for a document layout model, which is able to control an automatic interpretation mechanism for deriving a high level representation of the contents of a documents.
