Towards multi-level and modular conceptual schema specifications

Ulrich Schiel, Antonio L. Furtado, Erich J. Neuhold, Marco A. Casanova
1984 Information Systems  
The specification of the conceptual schema for a data base application is divided into levels.  ...  Modularization is also discussed as another dimension in the specification process, orthogonal to the division into levels.  ...  CONCLUSIONS The size and complexity of conceptual schemas pose considerable difficulties for their specification, leading us to divide the specification task along two orthogonal dimensions: levels and  ...

Conceptual schemas with abstractions making flat conceptual schemas more comprehensible

L.J. Campbell, T.A. Halpin, H.A. Proper
1996 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
We present an algorithm to recursively derive higher levels of abstraction from a given (flat) conceptual schema.  ...  Conceptual schema diagrams provide modelers with a picture of the salient structures underlying the modeled universe of discourse, in a form that can readily be understood by and communicated to users,  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank the anonymous referees for their comments and suggestions, which have lead to improvements of the original article.  ...

Exploiting Deep Semantics and Compositionality of Natural Language for Human-Robot-Interaction [article]

Manfred Eppe, Sean Trott, Jerome Feldman
2016 arXiv   pre-print
To realize the required deep analysis, we employ methods from cognitive linguistics, namely the modular and compositional framework of Embodied Construction Grammar (ECG) [Feldman, 2009].  ...  Using ECG, robots are able to solve fine-grained reference resolution problems and other issues related to deep semantics and compositionality of natural language.  ...  To realize our toolchain, we provide a modular abstraction layer (the CQI), which maps high-level actions like grasp and move to robot-specific low-level motor commands.  ...

A Semiotic Approach to Conceptual Modelling [chapter]

Antonio L. Furtado, Marco A. Casanova, Simone Diniz Junqueira Barbosa
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
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  ...  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  ...  analyzing it against our three-level conceptual schemas [37] .  ...

Towards movement-aware access control

2008 Proceedings of the SIGSPATIAL ACM GIS 2008 International Workshop on Security and Privacy in GIS and LBS - SPRINGL '08  
Then we present the guidelines of a novel and space-centric modeling framework which aims at overcoming the conceptual limitations of the present model and similar solutions.  ...  Following the experience of design of the GEO-RBAC model, in this paper we want to look at those models with a critical eye and point out open conceptual and architectural challenges.  ...  In practice, the conceptual level provides a language for the specification of GEO-RBAC policies which are then mapped onto the policies at logical level.  ...

This deviation from the common standards disallows using standard off-theshelf software.  ...  Availability of data and materials All data sets used in the discussion above are available from open, free, public sources as generally used in INSPIRE documents and discussions.  ...
