An Overview of Data Management in Pervasive Systems

 

Fabio A. Schreiber, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

 

Romolo Camplani, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

 

Chair: Fausto Rabitti

 

Abstract

Ubiquity, proactivity, autonomy and context-awareness are among the most relevant properties of Pervasive Systems deriving from the interaction among many very small, cheap, and low power devices of different nature - often configured into Wireless Sensor Networks - which must be controlled and queried in a transparent way by suitable languages. Data production from the field can attain remarkable throughputs which must be opportunely managed. After a review of Pervasive System data management features and properties, the tutorial will exemplify them using the PerLa language, based on a Database-like metaphor, which provides a more abstract view of the system allowing the designer to focus on the conceptual issues.

Manfred Reichert, University of Ulm, Germany

 

Barbara Weber, University of Innsbruck, Austria

 

Chair: Bernhard Thalheim

 

Abstract

In recent years different paradigms and technologies for realizing flexible and easily adaptable process-aware information systems (PAISs) have emerged. Using real-world cases from different application domains, this tutorial will present a comprehensive review of the challenges that exist for flexible PAISs, and it will give detailed insights into concepts, methods and technologies for realizing these PAISs.

Information value and conceptual modelling: a systemic survey of economic, social and technological issues

 

Carlo Batini, Universita’ degli Studi di Milano Bicocca, Italy

 

Gianluigi Viscusi, Universita’ degli Studi di Milano Bicocca, Italy

 

Chair: Stephane Grumbach

 

Abstract

The tutorial aims to describe a comprehensive framework of research results in the area of information value, considering the economic, social, and technological points of view, and analyzing the relationships between the areas of information value and conceptual modelling. The relationship between information value and its determinants such as information quality, capacity and utility will also be discussed.
