An embedded domain-specific language for type-safe server-side web scripting
Peter Thiemann
Pages: 1-46
DOI: 10.1145/1052934.1052935
WASH/CGI is an embedded domain-specific language for server-side Web scripting. Due to its reliance on the strongly typed, purely functional programming language Haskell as a host language, it is highly flexible and---at the same time---it provides...

A multi-agent infrastructure for developing personalized web-based systems
Liliana Ardissono, Anna Goy, Giovanna Petrone, Marino Segnan
Pages: 47-69
DOI: 10.1145/1052934.1052936
Although personalization and ubiquity are key properties for on-line services, they challenge the development of these systems due to the complexity of the required architectures. In particular, the current infrastructures for the development of...

Motion prediction for caching and prefetching in mouse-driven DVE navigation
Addison Chan, Rynson W. H. Lau, Beatrice Ng
Pages: 70-91
DOI: 10.1145/1052934.1052937
A distributed virtual environment (DVE) allows geographically separated users to participate in a shared virtual environment via connected networks. However, when the users are connected by the Internet, bandwidth limitation and network latency may...

Inside PageRank
Monica Bianchini, Marco Gori, Franco Scarselli
Pages: 92-128
DOI: 10.1145/1052934.1052938
Although the interest of a Web page is strictly related to its content and to the subjective readers' cultural background, a measure of the page authority can be provided that only depends on the topological structure of the Web. PageRank is a...

DOI: 10.1145/1052934.1052940
XML is emerging as a major standard for representing data on the World Wide Web. Recently, many XML storage models have been proposed to manage XML data. In order to assess an XML database's abilities to deal with XML queries, several benchmarks have...

Learning algorithms for single-instance electronic negotiations using the time-dependent behavioral tactic
Wilson Wai Ho Mok, R. P. Sundarraj
Pages: 195-230
DOI: 10.1145/1052934.1052941
Negotiator often rely on learning an opponent's behavior and on then using the knowledge gained to arrive at a better deal. However, in an electronic negotiation setting in which the parties involved are often unknown to (and therefore lack...

Link analysis ranking: algorithms, theory, and experiments
Allan Borodin, Gareth O. Roberts, Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Panayiotis Tsaparas
