L'objectiu del grup és la producció de contribucions rellevants en les àrees d'expertesa dels components del grup i la seva disseminació en revistes i conferències internacionals de prestigi reconegut. És voluntat del grup que les contribucions tinguin un impacte significatiu a llarg termini. La transferència de tecnologia és considerada com una conseqüència de l'excel·lència en la recerca i s'ha de portar a terme com un mitjà per incrementar l'impacte dels resultats, obtenir recursos per al grup i explorar nous temes per a la recerca en el futur.

The primary goal is to produce relevant contributions in the areas of expertise of the group and to disseminate them in renowned international journals and conferences. It is the group's aim that these contributions have a tangible and long-term impact on the scientific community. Technology transfer is considered a byproduct of research excellence and should be sought as a means of increasing the impact of the results, obtaining resources for the group and envisioning new directions for future research.

  • Security-sensitive tackling of obstructed workflow executions 

    Holderer, Julius; Carmona Vargas, Josep; Müller, Günter (CEUR-WS.org, 2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Imposing access control onto workflows considerably reduces the set of users authorized to execute the workflow tasks. Further constraints (e.g. Separation of Duties) as well as unexpected unavailabilty of users may finally ...
  • Complexity and dynamics of the winemaking bacterial communities in berries, musts, and wines from apulian grape cultivars through time and space 

    Marzano, Marinella; Fosso, Bruno; Manzari, Caterina; Grieco, Francesco; Intranuovo, Marianna; Cozzi, Giuseppe; Mulè, Giuseppina; Scioscia, Gaetano; Valiente Feruglio, Gabriel Alejandro; Tullo, Apollonia; Sbisa, Elisabetta; Pesole, Graziano; Santamaria, Monica (2016-06-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    Currently, there is very little information available regarding the microbiome associated with the wine production chain. Here, we used an amplicon sequencing approach based on high-throughput sequencing (HTS) to obtain a ...
  • Analysis of pivot sampling in dual-pivot Quicksort: A holistic analysis of Yaroslavskiy's partitioning scheme 

    Nebel, Markus E.; Wild, Sebastian; Martínez Parra, Conrado (2016-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    The new dual-pivot Quicksort by Vladimir Yaroslavskiy-used in Oracle's Java runtime library since version 7-features intriguing asymmetries. They make a basic variant of this algorithm use less comparisons than classic ...
  • On the cost of fixed partial match queries in K-d trees 

    Duch Brown, Amalia; Lau Laynes-Lozada, Gustavo Salvador; Martínez Parra, Conrado (2016-08-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Partial match queries constitute the most basic type of associative queries in multidimensional data structures such as K-d trees or quadtrees. Given a query q=(q0,…,qK-1) where s of the coordinates are specified and K-s ...
  • Self-synchronized duty-cycling for sensor networks with energy harvesting capabilities: Implementation in Wiselib 

    Hernández, H.; Baumgartner, Tobias; Blum, Christian; Blesa Aguilera, Maria Josep; Fekete, Sandor P.; Kröller, Alexander (2010)
    External research report
    Open Access
    In this work we present a protocol for a self- synchronized duty-cycling mechanism in wireless sensor net- works with energy harvesting capabilities. The protocol is im- plemented in Wiselib, a library of generic algorithms ...
  • De Menos a Distinto: Estudio de la Implantación de R en las asignaturas del grado de estadística 

    Baixeries i Juvillà, Jaume; Fairén González, Marta; Gabarró Vallès, Joaquim; Pasarella Sánchez, Ana Edelmira (2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Teaching computer science in degrees that are not computer science related presents an important challenge: to motivate the students and to achieve good average grades. The student’s complaint is always based ...
  • Absorption time of the Moran process 

    Díaz Cort, Josep; Goldberg, Leslie Ann; Richerby, David; Serna Iglesias, María José (2016-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. The Moran process models the spread of mutations in populations on graphs. We investigate the absorption time of the process, which is the time taken for a mutation introduced at a randomly ...
  • Process mining meets abstract interpretation 

    Carmona Vargas, Josep; Cortadella Fortuny, Jordi (2010-07)
    External research report
    Open Access
    The discovery of process models out of system traces is an interesting problem that has received significant attention in the last years. In this work, a theory for the derivation of a Petri net from a set of traces is ...
  • Process mining from a basis of state regions 

    Solé, Marc; Carmona Vargas, Josep (2010-01)
    External research report
    Open Access
    A central problem in the area of Process Mining is to obtain a formal model that represents selected behavior of a system. The theory of regions has been applied to address this problem, enabling the derivation of a Petri ...
  • Multikey Quickselect 

    Frias Moya, Leonor; Roura Ferret, Salvador (2009-07)
    External research report
    Open Access
    In this paper we introduce Multikey Quickselect: an efficient, in-place, and easy to implement algorithm for the selection problem for strings. We present several variants of our basic algorithm, which apply to two different ...
