Highlights

We discuss what makes Architectural, Urban and Construction domains collaborative.

We propose an Extensible Orchestration Framework (ExOF) model.

The ExOF model is developed from process and product specific foundations.

The ExOF model orchestrates the usage of different software tools and standards.

The model is tested with the case study of daylight illumination simula

Note to users:
Corrected proofs are Articles in Press that contain the authors' corrections. Final citation details, e.g., volume and/or issue number, publication year and page numbers, still need to be added and the text might change before final publication.

Although corrected proofs do not have all bibliographic details available yet, they can already be cited using the year of online publication and the DOI , as follows: author(s), article title, Publication (year), DOI. Please consult the journal's reference style for the exact appearance of these elements, abbreviation of journal names and use of punctuation.

When the final article is assigned to volumes/issues of the Publication, the Article in Press version will be removed and the final version will appear in the associated published volumes/issues of the Publication. The date the article was first made available online will be carried over.

Abstract. “Virtual Community of Practice” is a term that refers to the several ways people work together and/or become partners in virtual environments with focus in work or practical activities. This text describes the Virtual Communities of Practice - Virtual CoPs, their concept, implementation and working aspects and possibilities in the Semantic Web context.

Resumo: O termo "semântica" tem sido amplamente utilizado nos últimos anos em diversas áreas de pesquisa e, em particular, em áreas relacionadas à tecnologia da informação. Um dos motivadores de tal apropriação é a visão da Web Semântica, originada na expansão da web e nas limitações dos instrumentos de busca baseados em sintaxe. Cabe questionar, entretanto, qual é esta "semântica" da qual trata a Web Semântica, uma vez que o estudo do assunto é complexo e controverso. O presente artigo se insere nesse contexto, analisando o que é semântica, discutindo-a no âmbito da tecnologia da informação e propondo alternativas interpretativas. Avalia-se criticamente um espectro, o qual propõe a ordenação de instrumentos (modelos, linguagens, estruturas taxonômicas, etc.) de acordo com uma escala semântica. Espera-se tornar claro o uso do termo em contextos diversos, bem como propor um novo espectro a partir das considerações do presente artigo.

 

Resumen Se analizan las características, actividades y resultados de los laboratorios –también conocidos como labs– promovidos en los últimos años por empresas periodísticas de prestigio, a escala internacional. Se realiza un estudio comparado sobre una muestra de 31 labs, en base a la información corporativa que ofrecen en sus respectivos sitios web y en sus cuentas en Twitter. Ese análisis permite identificar la estructura prototípica, tareas, funcionamiento y resultados de los labs en los medios. Se identifican cuatro modelos principales: 1) dedicados al desarrollo de aplicaciones y tecnologías digitales; 2) centrados en la exploración de nuevas narrativas multimedia y el periodismo de datos; 3) destinados a promover proyectos empresariales y startups; y 4) orientados a actividades de formación profesional y programas de alfabetización mediática. 

Abstract.

In recent years more and more information has been made available on the Web. High quality information is often stored in dedicated databases of digital libraries, which are on their way to become expanding islands of well organized information. However, managing this information still poses challenges. The Semantic Web provides technologies that are about help to meet these challenges.

In this article we present JeromeDL, a full fledged open-source digital library system. We exemplify how digital library content management can benefit from the Semantic Web. We define and evaluate browsing and searching features. We describe how the semantic descriptions of resources and users profiles improve the usability of a digital library. We present how digital libraries can be interconnected into one heteroge- neous database with use of semantic technologies.
