Populating narratives using Wikidata events: an initial experiment
Metilli D., Bartalesi V., Meghini C., Aloia N.
The study presented in this paper is part of our research aimed at improving the search functionalities of current Digital Libraries using formal narratives. Narratives are intended as sequences of events. We present the results of an initial experiment to detect and extract implicit events from the Wikidata knowledge base in order to construct a narrative in a semi-automatic way. Wikidata contains many historical entities, but comparably few events. The reason is that most events in Wikidata are represented in an implicit way, e.g. by listing a date of birth instead of having an event of type "birth". For this reason, we decided to generate what we call the Wikidata Event Graph (WEG), i.e. the graph of implicit events found in Wikidata. We performed an initial experiment taking as case study the narrative of the life of Italian poet Dante Alighieri. Only one event of the life of Dante is explicitly represented in Wikidata as instance of the class Q1190554 Occurrence. Using the WEG, we were able to automatically detect 31 more events of Dante's life that were present in Wikidata in an implicit way.Source: ICRDL 2019 - 15th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries, pp. 159–166, Pisa, Italy, 31 Juanry - 01 February 2019

Enabling European Archaeological Research: The ARIADNE E-infrastructure
Aloia N., Meghini C., Scopigno R.
Research e-infrastructures, digital archives and data services have become important pillars of scientific enterprise that in recent decades has become ever more collaborative, distributed and data-intensive. The archaeological research community has been an early adopter of digital tools for data acquisition, organisation, analysis and presentation of research results of individual projects. However, the provision of e-infrastructure and services for data sharing, discovery, access and re-use has lagged behind. This situation is being addressed by ARIADNE: the Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Dataset Networking in Europe. This EU-funded network has developed an e-infrastructure that enables data providers to register and provide access to their resources (datasets, collections) through the ARIADNE data portal, facilitating discovery, access and other services across the integrated resources. This article describes the current landscape of data repositories and services for archaeologists in Europe, and the issues that make interoperability between them difficult to realise. The results of the ARIADNE surveys on users' expectations and requirements are also presented. The main section of the article describes the architecture of the e-infrastructure, core services (data registration, discovery and access) and various other extant or experimental services. The on-going evaluation of the data integration and services is also discussed. Finally, the article summarises lessons learned, and outlines the prospects for the wider engagement of the archaeological research community in sharing data through ARIADNE.Source: Internet archaeology 43 (2017): 11–21. doi:10.11141/ia.43.11

PARTHENOS - Design of the joint resource registry. Deliverable D5.2 PARTHENOS
Aloia N., Candela L., Debole F., Frosini L., Lorenzini M., Pagano P.
The activity of design of the Joint Resource Registry is propaedeutic to the building phase of a comprehensive inventory of resources and is the result of two different activities: o A survey of resources (datasets, collections, infrastructures, services) available in the archaeological context; o The definition of the main entities for the PARTHENOS data model taking into account the ontology defined in T5.1. In this document, we present a description of the existing registries in the humanities area, derived from the analysis conducted in the first activity. The goal of the activity was to identify the main descriptive conceptual entities and features of existing resources that would be useful for the definition of the PARTHENOS Registry Data Model. This document is organized as follows: Section 2 describes the best-known standards used in the definition of registry models; Section 3 describes the survey carried out of existing registries in the thematic area of the PARTHENOS project; Section 4 contains a detailed description of the surveyed registries; Section 5 summarizes the main entities and functionalities of the analysed registries; Section 6 presents the PARTHENOS Joint Resource Registry Data Model; and finally, Section 7 presents the architecture of the Joint Resource Registry service that implements the model.Source: Project report, PARTHENOS, Deliverable D5.2, pp.1, 2017

Mapping the ARIADNE catalogue data model to CIDOC CRM: Bridging resource discovery and item-level access
Aloia N., Debole F., Felicetti A., Galluccio I., Theodoridou M.
ARIADNE is a European project aiming to integrate existing archaeological research infrastructures, services and distributed datasets, and to develop new technologies and tools to improve archaeological research methodology. The ARIADNE registry contains information about resources available among the various partners of the project and the metadata repository, which contains item level information of these resources. In order to provide an advanced discovery mechanism combining both item level and registry level information we propose a mapping from the ARIADNE Catalog Data Model, the model of the ARIADNE registry, to the CIDOC CRM, the underlying model of the metadata repository. The paper will present the requirements that led to the choice of different models for the registry and the metadata repository, will elaborate on the mapping, and will propose an integrated interface for information discovery and presentation.Source: SCIRES-IT (Roma) 7 (2017): 1–8. doi:10.2423/i22394303v7n1p1

Describing research data: a case study for archaeology
Aloia N., Papatheodorou C., Gavrilis D., Debole F, Meghini C.
The growth of the digital resources produced by the research activities demand the development of e-Infrastructures in which researchers can access remote facilities, select and re-use huge volumes of data and services, run complex experimental processes and share results. Data registries aim to describe uniformly the data of e-Infrastructures contributing to the re-usability and interoperability of big scientific data. However the current situation requires the development of powerful resource integration mechanisms that step beyond the principles guaranteed by the data registries standards. This paper proposes a conceptual model for describing data resources and services and extends the existing specifications for the development of data registries. The model has been implemented in the context of the ARIADNE project, a EU funded project that focuses on the integration of Archaeological digital resources all over the Europe.Source: OTM 2014 - On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems: OTM 2014 Conferences.

The Europeana linked open data pilot server
Meghini C., Aloia N., Concordia C.
The Linked Data is a set of principles and technologies providing a publishing para- digm for sharing and reusing RDF data on the Web. The Linked Data Cloud is expanding at a very high speed since 2007, when the Linked Data Project was launched. Europeana, the European Digital Library, subscribes to the view of a web of data, and the distribution of cultural heritage data is one of the main objectives established by the Europeana Strategic Plan. The paper illus- trates how Europeana publishes Linked Data, with focus on the technological approach adopted.Source: Digital Libraries and Archives. 8th Italian Research Conference. IRCDL 2012.

Designing and implementing a user-generated content service for Europeana.
Aloia N., Concordia C., Meghini C.
The paper presents an overview of the user generated content service that the ASSETS Best Practice Network has designed, implemented and evaluated with the user for Europeana, the European digital library. The service will allow Europeana users to contribute to the contents of the digital library in several different ways, such as uploading simple media objects along with their descriptions, annotating existing objects, or enriching existing descriptions. The user and the system requirements are outlined first, and used to derive the basic principles underlying the service. A conceptual model of the entities required for the realization of the service and a general sketch of the system architecture are also given, and used to illustrate the basic workflow of some important operations.Source: Conference on Information Technologies for Performing Arts, Media Access and Entertainment, pp. 126–130, Florence, Italy, 7-9 May 2012

Implementing BRICKS, a digital library management system
Aloia N., Concordia C., Meghini C.
Digital Libraries (DLs) play a central role in the way information is produced, accessed and used in the Internet era. While the Web provides a universal access to uncontrolled information resources, DLs allow large, distributed repositories of multimedia content, annotated with possibly rich semantic structures and regulated by digital rights, to be created and managed to satisfy the needs of vast user communities. This paper describes the main features of BRICKS, an open-source DL management system based on an innovative peer-to-peer architecture and integrating advanced information management techniques, ranging from model-agnostic content and metadata management to distributed query processing.Source: 15th Italian Symposium on Advanced Database Systems.

Querying a BRICKS digital library
Aloia N., Concordia C., Meghini C.
Searching the Web can be frustrating if the sought information is not related to a well defined and popular topic of interest or supplied by renowned Web Sites. One of the main goal of the activities in the area of the Semantic Web is to overcome this problem. The Digital Library (DL) arena is a suitable place to take up the challenge. The growing interest in the Digital Libraries along with the publishing of generalized software that simplifies the building of such systems, has recently improved the standardization of concept and functionalities of DLs, DL Systems and DL Management Systems (DLMS). A significant contribution in this area has been given by EU-funded projects in this area, namely DELOS, BRICKS and DILIGENT. This paper describes the Query Manager of the BRICKS- DLMS, which implements a distributed information retrieval capability, offered in the form of simple search (Google-like) or of advanced search, the latter based on knowledge represented by metadata coming from different schemas. Cross-language discovery, and personalized query and query results, based on user profiles, are other significant characteristics of BRICKS-DLMS Query Manager.Source: IADIS International Conference WWW/Internet 2007, Vila Real, Portugal, 5-8 ottobre 2007
