An essential element in defining the semantics of Web services is the domain knowledge. Medical informatics is one of the few domains to have considerable domain knowledge exposed through standards. These standards offer significant value in terms of expressing the semantics of Web services in the healthcare domain.


Views as first-class citizens in object-oriented databases
Alhajj, R; Polat, Faruk; Yilmaz, C (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-04-01)
Extensibility and dynamic schema evolution are among the attractive features that lead to the wide acceptance of the object-oriented paradigm. Not knowing all class hierarchy details should not prevent a user from introducing new classes when necessary. Naive or professional users may define new classes either by using class definition constructs or as views. However, improper placement of such classes leads to a flat hierarchy with many things duplicated. To overcome this problem, we automated the process ...
Semantics based customization of UBL document schemas
Yarimagan, Yalin; Doğaç, Asuman (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-12-01)
Universal Business Language (UBL) is an OASIS initiative to develop common business document schemas to provide document interoperability in the eBusiness domain. Since the data requirements change according to a context, UBL schemas need to be customized and UBL defines a guideline to be followed for customization of schemas. XSD derivation based customization as proposed by UBL provides syntactic interoperability, that is, an XML parser that can interpret standard UBL documents can also interpret customiz...
Efficiency and effectiveness of query processing in cluster-based retrieval
Can, F; Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör; Demir, E (Elsevier BV, 2004-12-01)
Our research shows that for large databases, without considerable additional storage overhead, cluster-based retrieval (CBR) can compete with the time efficiency and effectiveness of the inverted index-based full search (FS). The proposed CBR method employs a storage structure that blends the cluster membership information into the inverted file posting lists. This approach significantly reduces the cost of similarity calculations for document ranking during query processing and improves efficiency. For exa...
Artemis message exchange framework: Semantic interoperability of exchanged messages in the healthcare domain
Bicer, V; Laleci, GB; Doğaç, Asuman; Kabak, Y (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2005-09-01)
One of the most challenging problems in the healthcare domain is providing interoperability among healthcare information systems. In order to address this problem, we propose the semantic mediation of exchanged messages. Given that most of the messages exchanged in the healthcare domain are in EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) or XML format, we describe how to transform these messages into OWL (Web Ontology Language) ontology instances. The OWL message instances are then mediated through an ontology mapping...
Design and implementation of a privacy framework for web servicesin the travel domain
Erkanar, Mehmet; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
A web service is a collection of functions that are packaged as a single entity and published to the network for use by other programs. Web services are building blocks for creating open distributed systems, and allow companies and individuals to quickly and cheaply make their digital assets available worldwide. With considerable interoperability, privacy management becomes an inevitable concern of the web services. Companies and individuals should be able to restrict the information available about themsel...
