  • Gamification for Online Communities: A Case Study for Delivering
           Government Services
    • Authors: sales@wspc.com.sg (Sanat Kumar Bista)
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. Gamification, the idea of inserting game dynamics into portals or social networks, has recently evolved as an approach to encourage active participation in online communities. For an online community to start and proceed on to a sustainable operation, it is important that members are encouraged to contribute positively and frequently. We decided to introduce gamification in an online community that we designed and developed with the Australian Government's Department of Human Services to support welfare recipients transitioning from one payment to another. We first defined a formal model of gamification and a gamification design process. In instantiating our model to the online community, we realised that our context applied a number of constraints on the gamification elements that could be introduced. In this paper, we outline the design and implementation of a gamification model for online communities and its instantiation into our context, with its specific requirements. While we cannot comment on the success of gamification to drive user engagement in our context (for lack of the possibility of a controlled experiment), we found our implementation of badges-based gamification a helpful way to provide a useful abstraction on the life of the community, providing feedback enabling us to monitor and analyze the community. We thus show how feedback provided by such gamification data has a potential to be useful to community providers to better understand the community needs and addressing them appropriately to maintain a level of engagement in the community.

  • Recommending Talks at Research Conferences Using Users' Social Networks
    • Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. This paper investigates recommendation algorithms to suggest talks of interest to attendees of research conferences. In this study, based on a social conference support system Conference Navigator 3 (CN3), we explored three kinds of knowledge sources to generate recommendations: users' preference about talks (CN3 bookmarks), users' social networks (research collaboration network and CN3 following network) and talk content information (titles and abstracts). Using these sources, we explored a diverse set of algorithms from non-personalized community vote-based recommendations and conventional collaborative filtering recommendations to hybrid recommendations such as social network-based (SN) recommendations boosted by content information of talks. We found that SN recommendations fused with content information outperformed the other approaches. Moreover, for cold-start users who have an insufficient number of bookmarks to express their preferences, the recommendations based on their social connections also generated significantly better suggestions than the other approaches. Between two kinds of social networks that we considered as foundations of recommendations, there was no significant difference in the quality of the recommendations.

  • Interest Aware Consistency for Cooperative Editing in Heterogeneous
           Environments
    • Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 23, Issue 01, March 2014. Cooperative editing applications enable geographically distributed users to concurrently edit a shared document space over a computer network. These applications present several technical challenges related to the scalability of the system and the promptness with which relevant updates are disseminated to the concerned users. This paper presents Cooperative Semantic Locality Awareness (CoopSLA), a consistency model for cooperative editing applications that is scalable and efficient with regards to user needs. In CoopSLA, updates to different parts of the document have different priorities, depending on the relative interest of the user in the region in which the update is performed; updates that are considered relevant are sent to the user promptly, while less important updates are postponed. As a result, the system makes a more intelligent usage of the network resources, since (1) it saves bandwidth by merging postponed updates and (2) it issues fewer accesses to the network resources as a result of both update merging and message aggregation. We have implemented a collaborative version of the open source Tex editor TexMaker using the CoopSLA approach. We present evaluation results that support our claim that CoopSLA is very effective regarding network usage while fulfilling user needs (e.g. ensuring that relevant updates are disseminated in time).

  • Decision-Making Support for the Correctness of Input Data at Runtime in
           Business Processes
    • Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. In a business process, the information that flows between the activities can be introduced by those users who interact with the process. This introduced information could be incorrect due to a lack of knowledge or a mistake. For this reason and to make the business process execution consistent, we propose a Decision Support System (DSS) to inform the user about the possible and correct values that the input data can take. The DSS takes into account the business process model and the policy of the company. The policy concerning the input data and dataflow that the company manages can be represented by constraints (called Business Data Constraints (BDCs)). In order to ascertain all the possible values of the input data that permit the execution of the process following the defined goals, the DSS analyzes the business process model and the BDC, using the constraint programming paradigm.

  • Quality Dimensions in Process Discovery: The Importance of Fitness,
           Precision, Generalization and Simplicity
    • Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Process discovery algorithms typically aim at discovering process models from event logs that best describe the recorded behavior. Often, the quality of a process discovery algorithm is measured by quantifying to what extent the resulting model can reproduce the behavior in the log, i.e. replay fitness. At the same time, there are other measures that compare a model with recorded behavior in terms of the precision of the model and the extent to which the model generalizes the behavior in the log. Furthermore, many measures exist to express the complexity of a model irrespective of the log. In this paper, we first discuss several quality dimensions related to process discovery. We further show that existing process discovery algorithms typically consider at most two out of the four main quality dimensions: replay fitness, precision, generalization and simplicity. Moreover, existing approaches cannot steer the discovery process based on user-defined weights for the four quality dimensions. This paper presents the ETM algorithm which allows the user to seamlessly steer the discovery process based on preferences with respect to the four quality dimensions. We show that all dimensions are important for process discovery. However, it only makes sense to consider precision, generalization and simplicity if the replay fitness is acceptable.

  • A Perspective of Evolution After Five Years: A Large-Scale Study of Web
           Spam Evolution
    • Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Identifying and detecting web spam is an ongoing battle between spam-researchers and spammers which has been going on since search engines allowed searching of web pages to the modern sharing of web links via social networks. A common challenge faced by spam-researchers is the fact that new techniques depend on requiring a corpus of legitimate and spam web pages. Although large corpora of legitimate web pages are available to researchers, the same cannot be said about web spam or spam web pages. In this paper, we introduce the Webb Spam Corpus 2011 — a corpus of approximately 330,000 spam web pages — which we make available to researchers in the fight against spam. By having a standard corpus available, researchers can collaborate better on developing and reporting results of spam filtering techniques. The corpus contains web pages crawled from links found in over 6.3 million spam emails. We analyze multiple aspects of this corpus including redirection, HTTP headers, web page content, and classification evaluation. We also provide insights into changes in web spam since the last Webb Spam Corpus was released in 2006. These insights include: (1) spammers manipulate social media in spreading spam; (2) HTTP headers and content also change over time; (3) spammers have evolved and adopted new techniques to avoid the detection based on HTTP header information.

  • Using Timed Automata for a Priori Warnings and Planning for Timed
           Declarative Process Models
    • Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Many processes are characterized by high variability, making traditional process modeling languages cumbersome or even impossible to be used for their description. This is especially true in cooperative environments relying heavily on human knowledge. Declarative languages, like Declare, alleviate this issue by not describing what to do step-by-step but by defining a set of constraints between actions that must not be violated during the process execution. Furthermore, in modern cooperative business, time is of utmost importance. Therefore, declarative process models should be able to take this dimension into consideration. Timed Declare has already previously been introduced to monitor temporal constraints at runtime, but it has until now only been possible to provide an alert when a constraint has already been violated without the possibility of foreseeing and avoiding such violations. In this paper, we introduce an extended version of Timed Declare with a formal timed semantics for the entire language. The semantics degenerates to the untimed semantics in the expected way. We also introduce a translation to timed automata, which allows us to detect inconsistencies in models prior to execution and to early detect that a certain task is time sensitive. This means that either the task cannot be executed after a deadline (or before a latency), or that constraints are violated unless it is executed before (or after) a certain time. This makes it possible to use declarative process models to provide a priori guidance instead of just a posteriori detecting that an execution is invalid. We also outline how a Declare model with time can be used in resource planning and how Declare has been integrated into CPN Tools.
