Research interests
Topic People Description
Data intensive scalable computing Damiano Carra
Analysis, evaluation and design of large scale parallel systems, with particular emphasis on scalable data processing, Big Data systems, and Cloud Computing
Semistructured databases Carlo Combi
Barbara Oliboni
This research topic deals with data models and languages for representing and querying semistructured data in a general and flexible way.
GeoProcessing Workflow Carlo Combi
Sara Migliorini
This research topic deals with the extension of workflow system towards geographical applications in distributed environment.
Spatial query processing and optimization Alberto Belussi
Sara Migliorini
This research topic deals with the study of new approaches for the specification of spatial queries in geographical applications and the techniques for their execution and optimization.
Conceptual modeling of spatial databases Alberto Belussi
Sara Migliorini
This research topic regards the study of new approaches for the conceptual modeling of geographical databases, with particular emphasis on the spatial integrity constraints specification. In cooperation with Politecnico di Milano and with CISIS (Centro Interregionale per i Sistemi Informatici, geografici e Statistici) a new conceptual data model has been defined and used as Italian standard for the conceptual schema of the National Core database. More details about this project and the GeoUML tools can be found at http://spatialdbgroup.polimi.it/.
Geographical Information Systems & Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) Alberto Belussi
Study of new tools and interoperability techniques for supporting the creation and maintenance of spatial data in Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) at national or European level (INSPIRE directive).
Process-Aware Information Systems Carlo Combi
Sara Migliorini
Barbara Oliboni
Elisa Quintarelli
Process-Aware Information Systems is a research field dealing with the management of business processes by taking into account different aspects. Desing and reengineering of business processes, representation and management of temporal aspects of business processes and conceptual representation of processes and their related data are the some of the possibile topics.
Workflow Systems in Medicine Carlo Combi
Roberto Posenato
