A Semiotic Approach to Conceptual Modelling [chapter]

Antonio L. Furtado, Marco A. Casanova, Simone Diniz Junqueira Barbosa
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To guide our conceptual modelling approach, we identified four semiotic relations, associated with the four master tropes that have been claimed to provide a system to fully grasp the world conceptually  ...  Regarding databases as a component of information systems, we extended the scope of the Entity-Relationship model, so as to encompass facts, events and agents in a three-schemata specification method employing  ...  We presupposed that a team of expert conceptual designers would build a standard repository of source conceptual models, which less experienced designers would use to create new target conceptual models  ...

A semiotic-based framework to user interface design

Jair C Leite
2002 Proceedings of the second Nordic conference on Human-computer interaction - NordiCHI '02  
This work proposes a framework based on the Semiotic Engineering approach that drives designers to specify the application conceptual model and its associated user interface.  ...  Our work contributes to user interface design by proposing the LEMD, a linguistic formalism to the user interface specification in an abstract and structured way focusing on what he/she really wants to  ...  The notion of virtuality is referred in the Cognitive Engineering approach as a conceptual model -the knowledge about system usability (Norman, 1986 ).  ...

Integrating Information Systems [chapter]

Valerie A. Martin, Mark Lycett, Robert Macredie
2002 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
This situation highlights the need to integrate people and technology in a way which can enable a shared, conceptual understanding within and between the cultures in which the systems are established.  ...  As a result, software developers often cannot model and capture the 'messiness' of diverse mental models and language, which are a normal part of organisational life.  ...  Developers need to know what to model in order to manifest a shared conceptual understanding in the systems.  ...

Wolodtschenko, 2012) .  ...

Intersemiotic translation and transformational creativity
English

Daniella Aguiar, Pedro Ata, Joåo Queiroz
2015 Punctum International Journal of Semiotics  
To develop our argument, we consider Boden's fundamental notion of 'conceptual space' as a regular pattern of semiotic action, or 'habit' (sensu Peirce).  ...  Our association of Boden's framework to describe a cognitive creative phenomenon with a philosophically robust theory of meaning results in a cognitive semiotic account of IT.  ...  According to this model, art evolution should be understood as a translationally organized semiotic process.  ...

Past, present and future mathematical models for buildings

To better summarize the strengths and limitations of the applied approaches, we classify these models as physical, statistical and knowledge/logic-based models below, based on their mathematical approaches  ...  This paper attempts to uncover the fundamental limitations inherent in these models and provides some insights into future modelling directions, with special focus on the techniques of semiotics and chaos  ...  We shall present the control-semiotic perspective using a conceptualized control system model of intelligent buildings. Our approach is inspired somewhat by Joslyn (2001) and de Souza (2005) .  ...
