A Model-driven Approach to Preservation of Complex Digital Objects in Space Science
The paper discusses problems in preserving complex digital objects generated by experiments in space science. It describes PERICLES model-driven approach, how it can be applied to the automation of preservation processes such as technical appraisal and the relationship to the big data theme.
An ontology supporting planning, analysis, and simulation of evolving Digital Ecosystems
Digital Ecosystems (DEs) are interwoven networks of Digital Objects (DOs), policies, processes, services and user communities, within constantly changing and interacting environments. Their complex grown structures can be difficult to maintain and it can be hard to foresee the impact of planned and unplanned change. The PERICLES EU FP7 project developed the Digital Ecosystem Model […]
The Resource Action Language: Towards Designing Reactive RDF Stores
This paper introduces the main principles of ReAL (Resource Action Language), a language developed in the context of PERICLES model-driven approach to address the need for systems to react to the stimuli received from continually evolving environments. In an interconnected world such as the one envisioned by pervasive computing, systems should be able to react […]
PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata, Version 3.0
The PREMIS Data Dictionary and its supporting documentation is a comprehensive, practical resource for implementing preservation metadata in digital archiving systems. The Data Dictionary is built on a data model that defines five entities: Intellectual Entities, Objects, Events, Rights, and Agents. Each semantic unit defined in the Data Dictionary is a property of one of […]
PERICLES – Policy Editor
This poster presents the Policy Editor that is a development by Space Applications Services in the PERICLES project (http://pericles-project.eu/). The Policy Editor allows to create, refine and update a coherent and consistent set of policies for long term data preservation. The used policy model, whereof the properties can be defined or modified using the Policy […]
An Ontology Design Pattern for Digital Video
The paper proposes an Ontology Design Pattern (ODP) for modelling digital video resources, which was developed in the context of the PERICLES domain ontologies for Art & Media. The ODP can be found at this address: http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Submissions:DigitalVideo
Ontology-based Representation of Context of Use in Digital Preservation
The paper proposes a novel, ontology-based representation for modelling context and use-context of digital resources in the digital preservation field. At the core of the proposed representation lies the Linked Resource Model (LRM), an upper ontology for modelling dependencies between digital objects.
Studying the Cohesion Evolution of Genes Related to Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Using Semantic Similarity in Gene Ontology and Self-Organizing Maps
This paper offers an interesting overview on the application of some of PERICLES results in the biomedicine domain. In particular, this publication deploys an ontology-based semantic similarity combined with self-organizing maps for studying the temporal evolution of cohesion among Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) -related genes and the extracted information. More information on the open-source tool […]
Digital Preservation Based on Contextualized Dependencies
This paper proposes a method that considers the preservation of a number of interdependent digital entities, including documents, in conformance with context related information. A change that influences one of these objects can be propagated to the rest of the objects via analysis of their represented dependencies.
On the Preservation of Evolving Digital Content – The Continuum Approach and Relevant Metadata Models
This paper describes a model-driven approach, termed the Continuum approach, in which models rather than the digital objects themselves can be analysed. In such setting, the use of appropriate metadata is very important, we therefore outline the PERICLES Linked Resource Model, an upper ontology for Modelling Digital ecosystems, and compare and contrast it to the […]
