Recent Professional Activities
- XML Projection a projection operator integrated in the
Galax XQuery implementation project.
- XML Version Management: a change-centric model and diff tools (XyDiff) to identify and represent changes in XML documents.
- Top-k Query Processing: adaptive algorithms to efficiently identify a query's top-k matching objects, for different scenarios (multimedia, web services, XML).
