Tractable near-optimal policies for crawling

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 115, No. 32. (07 August 2018), pp. 8099-8103, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1801519115

Abstract

[Significance] We present a tractable algorithm that provides a near-optimal solution to the crawling problem, a fundamental challenge at the heart of web search: Given a large quantity of distributed and dynamic web content, what pages do we choose to update a local cache with the goal of serving up-to-date pages to client requests? Solving this optimization requires identifying the best set of pages to refresh given popularity rates and change rates—an intractable problem in the general case. To overcome this intractability, ...

 

Do voting advice applications have an effect on electoral participation and voter turnout? Evidence from the 2007 Swiss federal elections

  
In Electronic Participation, Vol. 6229 (2010), pp. 211-224, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-15158-3_18

Abstract

Voting Advice Applications (VAAs) render a valuable platform for tackling one of democracy’s central challenges: low voter turnout. Studies indicate that lack of information and cost-benefit considerations cause voters to abstain from voting. VAAs are online voting assistance tools which match own political preferences with those of candidates and parties in elections. By assisting voters in their decision-making process prior to casting their votes, VAAs not only rebut rational choice reasoning against voting but also narrow existing information gaps. In this ...

Abstract

[Excerpt: Preface] Forest inventories throughout the world have evolved gradually over time. The content as well as the concepts and definitions employed are constantly adapted to the users’ needs. Advanced inventory systems have been established in many countries within Europe, as well as outside Europe, as a result of development work spanning several decades, in some cases more than 100 years. [\n] With continuously increasing international agreements and commitments, the need for information has also grown drastically, and reporting requests have become more frequent and the content of the ...

 

Towards a Forest Information System for Europe

  
In Database and Expert Systems Applications, 2005. Proceedings. Sixteenth International Workshop on (August 2005), pp. 669-673, https://doi.org/10.1109/dexa.2005.190

Abstract

Forests cover over 30% of the European territory in the 25 Member States of the European Union. The maintenance and enhancement of the forest ecosystem is widely recognized as one of the main goals in preserving Europe's environment. Despite of this, the knowledge on Europe's forests is still very limited. This lack of knowledge is related to many intrinsic problems in the European Union, going from different terminologies and methods in data collection at the regional and national levels to the ...

Abstract

The analysis of changes in the timing of life cycle-events of organisms (phenology) has been able to contribute significantly to the assessment of potential impacts of climate change on ecology. These phenological responses of species to changes in climate are likely to have significant relevance for socio-economic issues such as agriculture, forestry and human health and have proven able to play a role in raising environmental awareness and education on climate change. This paper presents the European Phenology Network (EPN), which ...

 

Soil information in support of policy making and awareness raising

  
Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, Vol. 4, No. 5. (November 2012), pp. 552-558, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cosust.2012.07.001

Abstract

Soils play an important role in defining sustainable land-use options when facing major global environmental challenges such as food security, climate change, fresh water scarcity and biodiversity loss. Facing these problems, the 2006 EU Thematic Strategy for Soil Protection (TSSP), provides an important focal point for soil research and awareness raising. Unfortunately, the TSSP has not yet been followed up with a legally binding Framework Directive mainly because of political barriers. Two approaches are discussed to overcome these barriers: First, we ...

 

Re-Mediating Research Ethics

  
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, Vol. 32, No. 6. (01 December 2012), pp. 497-506, https://doi.org/10.1177/0270467612469074

Abstract

This article is a theoretical and empirical exploration of the meaning that accompanies contractual agreements, such as the End-User License Agreements (EULAs) that participants of online communities are required to sign as a condition of participation. As our study indicates, clicking “I agree” on the often lengthy conditions presented during the installation and updating process typically permits third parties (including researchers) to monitor the digitally-mediated actions of users. Through our small-scale study in which we asked participants which terms of EULAs ...

Abstract

The timelines and the accuracy of information provided and used are recognized as being critical when dealing with emergencies. The traditional ways to display much of the information in maps had many limitations, which are now being overcome with major progress in the way data are collected, organized, accessed, and communicated. This chapter provides an overview of current Earth Observation capacity with some examples in relation to forest fires and floods that serve to illustrate the main characteristics including governance and ...

Abstract

Forest fires are an integral part of forest dynamics. They have been largely influential in shaping the forest landscape of Europe, especially in the Mediterranean region. Fire event data collected by the countries in the region date back to the 1980s, although longer time series, although less accurate, can be reconstructed on the basis of major events in the region. At the European level, efforts of the countries and the European government to set up forest fire information systems were initiated in the early 1980s; ...

Abstract

Why, since the first applications of ICT, was and still is so difficult – if not quite impossible – to evaluate the productivity of ICT? In our opinion, mainly because – before any quantification – we need a clear and systematic view of the different economic benefits of the different applications of ICT. We present here a realistic and powerful framework by considering the different benefits resulting from the applications of ICT. In this approach, a categorization of benefits is presented ...
