    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The CitScale tool is a software platform for visualizing, analyzing and comparing the impacts of smart city policies based on innovative mobility concepts in urban areas. It places emphasis on new automotive vehicles aimed ...
  • Notes on using simulation-optimization techniques in traffic simulation 

    Ros, Xavier; Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Barceló Bugeda, Jaime (Elsevier, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Mathematical and simulation models of systems lay at the core of many decision support systems, and their role becomes more critical when the system is more complex. The decision process usually involves optimizing some ...
  • A Data-driven approach to improve the process of data-intensive API creation and evolution 

    Abelló Gamazo, Alberto; Ayala Martínez, Claudia Patricia; Farré Tost, Carles; Gómez Seoane, Cristina; Oriol Hilari, Marc; Romero Moral, Óscar (CEUR-WS.org, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The market of data-intensive Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) has recently experienced an exponential growth, but the creation and evolution of such APIs is still done ad-hoc, with little automated support and ...

    Estañol Lamarca, Montserrat; Mazuran, Mirjana; Oriol Hilari, Xavier; Tanca, Letizia; Teniente López, Ernest (CEUR-WS.org, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Given the events modeled by a business process, it may happen in the presence of alternative execution paths that the data required by a certain event determines somehow what event is executed next. Then, the process can ...
  • Practical update management in ontology-based data access 

    Giacomo, Giuseppe De; Lembo, Domenico; Oriol Hilari, Xavier; Savo, Domenico Fabio; Teniente López, Ernest (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Ontology-based Data Access (OBDA) is gaining importance both scientifically and practically. However, little attention has been paid so far to the problem of updating OBDA systems. This is an essential issue if we want to ...
  • OCLuniv: Expressive UML/OCL conceptual schemas for finite reasoning 

    Oriol Hilari, Xavier; Teniente López, Ernest (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Full UML/OCL is so expressive that most reasoning tasks are known to be undecidable in schemas defined with these languages. To tackle this situation, literature has proposed mainly three decidable fragments of UML/OCL: ...
