Armin Roth: Efficient Query Answering in Peer Data Management Systems

13:30, Room N107 (Parc Club) Abstract Peer Data Management Systems (PDMS) consist of a volatile set of peers. Each of them answers queries against its own schema by exploiting both local data and by passing queries to neighboring peers along so-called schema mappings. PDMS are highly flexible due to their decentral nature, but query answering …

The ViP2P team: ViP2P: system and architecture

15:00, Room N107 (Parc Club) Abstract ViP2P is a fully functional Java-based platform for the efficient, scalable management of XML documents in structured peer-to-peer networks based on distributed hash table (DHT) indices. We exploit indices (or materialized views) deployed in the P2P network independently by the peers, to answer an interesting dialect of tree pattern queries. There is …

Dario Colazzo: Projection-based optimization for XML updates

14:00, Room N107 (Parc Club) Abstract XML projection is one of the main adopted optimization techniques for reducing memory consumption in XQuery  in-memory engines. The main idea behind this technique is quite simple: given a query Q over an XML document D,  instead of evaluating Q on D, the query Q is evaluated on a …

Konstantinos Karanasos: View Selection for Efficient and Scalable RDF Data Management

joint work with Francois Goasdoue and Ioana Manolescu Abstract The view selection problem consists of choosing, given a set of queries, a set of views to materialize, in order to minimize the total cost of evaluating these queries and of maintaining the views. Several variants of the problem exist, encompassing the existence of a possible …

Dimitri Theodoratos: Processing and Efficient Evaluation of Generalized Tree-Pattern Queries

14:00, Room G008 (Parc Club) Abstract Current applications export and exchange XML data on the web. Usually, XML data are queried using keyword queries or using the standard structured query language XQuery whose core consists of the navigational query language XPath. In this context, one major challenge is the querying of the data when the …
