A modular metadata extraction system for born-digital articles
We present a comprehensive system for extracting metadata from scholarly articles. In our approach the entire document is inspected, including headers and footers of all the pages as well as bibliographic references. ...
The Burden of Big Data
(Polska Akademia Nauk, 2012)
New technologies are making it possible to gather and process huge amounts of data. This opens up fascinating possibilities as well as new challenges; it could also lead to a shift in the role and nature of science itself.

An Ocean of Information. Information overload faced by Internet users
(Polska Akademia Nauk, 2011)
As the amount of online content grows, Internet users’ attention span decreases. This brings an acute need for social and technological solutions that enable users to select the most important and relevant information.
Analysis of Gravitational Wave Signals on Heterogeneous Architectures
Heterogeneous architectures and programming techniques will be very important in the development of exascale HPC applications. Adapting heterogeneous programming techniques to scientific programming is not always ...
Data model for analysis of scholarly documents in the MapReduce paradigm
At CEON ICM UW we are in possession of a large collection of scholarly documents that we store and process using MapReduce paradigm. One of the main challenges is to design a simple, but effective data model that fits ...
Qualitative behaviour and numerical approximation of solutions to conservation laws with non-local point constraints on the flux and modeling of crowd dynamics at the bottlenecks
In this paper we investigate numerically the model for pedestrian traffic proposed in [B. Andreianov, C. Donadello, M.D. Rosini, Crowd dynamics and conservation laws with nonlocal constraints and capacity drop, Mathematical ...
Author disambiguation in the YADDA2 software platform
SYNAT platform powered by the YADDA2 architecture has been extended with the Author Disambiguation Framework and the Query Framework. The former framework clusters occurrences of contributor names into identities of authors, ...
