The project KIWI is concerned with knowledge management in Semantic Wikis and funded by the European Commission under the Project Number 211932 in the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). KIWI's objective is to investigate how knowledge management in highly dynamic environments can be supported using Semantic Wiki technologies, and how Semantic Wikis can be improved to satisfy the requirements of knowledge management. For this purpose, KIWI will:

  • implement an advanced knowledge management system based on the Semantic Wiki IkeWiki and extend it by improved, rule-based reasoning support, information extraction, personalisation, and advanced visualisations and editors
  • verify the system on two use cases in the areas of project knowledge management and software knowledge management, with flexible workflow models and specific support for the respective application areas.

KIWI is coordinated by Salzburg Research; other partners are Aalborg University, Brno University of Technology, Munich University, Sun Microsystems, Semantic Web Company, and Logica. AAU team is responsible for research of personalization and user modeling for semantic wikis and evaluation of the KIWI platform in the project management context of Logica in Denmark.

Innovation is characterised by an intensive collaborative process generating and exploring various ideas that should contribute to the solution of a particular, problem Students and professionals need to be trained to contribute to such problem-orientated innovation. Furthermore, innovative product designs integrate products from various suppliers, which themselves need to be innovative. Thus, learning how to deal with these distributed innovation processes is yet another challenge modern students and professionals have to face. The main objective of the idSpace project will be to design and develop such an idSpace environment and appropriate tooling for it. It will:

  • Contain an integrated toolset which will help to track and store semantic relationships among conceptual models, which will be used to describe ideas, goals, features and values.
  • Exhibit extensible, informal, pluggable pedagogical approaches, which drive specific uses of the toolset.
  • Instantiate a flexible, extensible, context aware, web-based platform, which forms the substrate for communities of practice to grow and thrive

AAU team is responsible for combination and integratio of creativity techniques. MDA and Semantic Web data models will be examined in this context.

FROGS: A Famework for Forward Recovery Web Service Transaction Compensations

Business to business integration has recently been performed by employing Web service environments. Moreover, such environments are being provided by major players on the technology markets. Those environments are based on open specifications for transaction coordination. When a failure in such an environment occurs, a compensation can be
initiated to recover from the failure. However, current environments have only limited capabilities for compensations, and are usually based on backward recovery. In this paper, we introduce an environment to deal with advanced compensations based on forward recovery principles. We extend the existing Web service transaction coordination architecture and infrastructure in order to support flexible compensation operations. A contract-based approach is being used, which allows the specification of permitted compensations at runtime. We introduce the abstract service and adapter components which allow us to separate the compensation logic from the coordination logic. In this way, we can easily plug in or plug out different compensation strategies based on a specification language defined on top of basic compensation activities and complex compensation types. Experiments with our approach and environment show that such an approach to compensation is feasible and beneficial. Frogs is hosted at sourceforge.

The health of a society’s individuals is not isolated from the natural environment. Symbiotically we influence and are influenced by the ecosystem.
Public health officials are faced with new challenges for outbreak alert and response due to the continuous emergence of infectious diseases and their contributing factors such as demographic change, or globalization. Early reaction is necessary, but often communication and information flow through traditional channels is slow. The M-Eco – Medical Ecosystem: Personalized Event-based surveillance – project proposes a complementing way to early detection of public health threats by using additional sources of information. These days, online media, weblogs, scientific and non-scientific discussion forums and direct electronic communication provide complements to the traditional report-ing mechanisms.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community‘s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement No.247829
AAU main task inthe project is to develop personalized recommendation methods and user modeling approaches for recommending detected medical events.
