    Abstract  The term “user-Centric identity management” is commonly used to denote any identity management solution that can improve the user experience compared to e.g. the traditional silo identity model. Identity federation can be described as user-centric in this sense because it can support SSO (single-sign-on), but identity federation can also be described as network-centric or cloud-...

    Abstract  Mining frequent patterns is plagued by the problem of pattern explosion making pattern reduction techniques a key challenge in pattern mining. In this talk we propose a theoretical framework for pattern reduction. We do this by measuring the robustness of a property of an itemset such as closedness or non-derivability. The robustness of a property is the probability that this property holds on random subsets...

    Title: Constructing Genome-wide Linkage Maps for Moths and Butterflies


    In this talk I will describe some key concepts of LEPIDOPTERA-MAP, a novel tool for constructing an accurate and comprehensive genetic linkage maps for butterflies and moths (lepidopterans) with next-generation sequencing (NGS) data from natural population samples and their offspring...

    Title: Multi-pattern matching with bidirectional indexes


    We study multi-pattern matching in a scenario where the pattern set is to be matched to several texts and hence indexing the pattern set is affordable. This kind of scenarious arise e.g. in metagenomics, where pattern set represents DNA of several species and the goal is to find out which...

    Title: Fast Scaffolding with Small Independent Mixed Integer Programs


    Assembling genomes from short read data has become increasingly popular but the problem remains computationally challenging especially for larger genomes. We study the scaffolding phase of sequence assembly where preassembled contigs are ordered based on mate pair data. We present...
