Building the shared dimension of the rural landscape: tools, principles and methods
Caterina Groli, 2016, doctoral dissertation

Abstract: This research investigates the rural landscape of the lagoon of Venice and its surrounding territory focusing on the forms of exploitation of its natural resources, the transformations that occurred throughout the course of history and the consequent formation of its primary economical sector. New economic sectors, new agricultural policies and other spatial and sectorial drivers transformed the primary sector itself which changed and adapted its productive schemes to the main economic patterns, heavily affecting the former rural asset of the landscape of the lagoon by changing its demographic, economic activities and land use practices. The study carries out a systematic and detailed analysis of all economic, cultural and social features that have interacted and impacted this specific landscape, relying mainly on the comparison of historical and current land-use maps through three different historical spans: 1823-1840 (pre-industrialization phase), 1933-1966 (industrializing process, considered as a determining factor of the transformation of this landscape) and 2013 (present post-industrialized condition). The maps, combined with relative data, are compared with the aid of the Geographical Information System (GIS) computer software. As a result, a set of new maps has been obtained, which point out the historical landscape permanencies, defined through in situ surveys on the territory. A multitude of other archival documents from direct and indirect sources have been examined in order to build up a sound and detailed socio-economic context and the overall historical background. Resources, goods and services provided by the rural landscape and its development are an important part of regional and EU policy instruments and also an essential factor of identity and growth for local communities. The consumption of resources, their availability and maintenance over time and accessibility through property regulations are all factors that shape the common and public dimension of the rural landscape, which represents another study challenge of this work. This study proposes the establishment of the rural park of the lagoon of Venice, through the implementation of the multi-functional role of agriculture, for the fulfilment of two fundamental conditions of the peri-urban rurality: the need of safeguarding the landscape and its significance, by preserving the authenticity and integrity of the rural characters and the dynamism of the primary sector, which is strictly related to the survival of the rural landscape.

W OMEN W RITERS D ATABASE AND VIRTUAL RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT BEYOND THE CURRICULA OF LITERARY SCHOLARSHIP
Narvika Bovcon, Aleš Vaupotič, 2017, published scientific conference contribution abstract

Abstract: The study of informatics typically includes information visualization and the rhetoric of user interface. Such courses are expanding the core computer science curricula towards multimedia communication design. However, to practice visualization on datasets in a non-focused way may diminish the quality of educational effect as well as the quality of the results of students' projects. A collaboration with domain experts has proven to be very beneficial by involving students in various research projects and platforms. The students of informatics at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana, have touched upon humanities projects in different special domains: the datasets provided by Institute of Contemporary History (INZ, Ljubljana), interface design for electronic scholarly editions based on TEI XML files, documentation of new media art exhibitions, and others. As noted by some contributors in A New Companion to Digital Humanities (2016) with relevance to the latter aspect of interdisciplinary contact, the domain of new media art constitutes an essential inspiration for the study of digital humanities methods and approaches. In the second part of the paper, the multi-year collaboration between the University of Nova Gorica and University of Ljubljana computer-science curricula will be presented. The WomenWriters database, as well as subsequently the NEWW VRE, has been used in different models of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Theory of Discourse and Semiotics
Aleš Vaupotič, 2019, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: The paper begins with an analysis of a news article reporting on scientific discovery. The scientific methods are considered from the point of view of Peircean semiotics and the structuralist semiology. The usefulness of the Peircean approach in literary scholarship is demonstrated in the case of the realist novel as it is construed by Hans Vilmar Geppert. By considering Geppert’s alignment of Bakhtin’s theory of the novel with Peirce’s sign-theory the similarities and differences between the discourse-theoretical (considering also Foucault’s work) and semiotic approaches is outlined. In the second part of the text two cases of artistic research are presented, the first one, the Friedhof Laguna project from 2003, being realised in the discourse-theoretical frameworks, and the second one, 3-D visualizations of the NEWW Women Writers database from 2017, being grounded in the Peircean semiotics.

Artistic Visualizations and Beyond
Narvika Bovcon, Aleš Vaupotič, 2018, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The paper discusses a case study of the integration of artistic practice in the digital humanities research. The methodology of encoding meaning in visual form is explained for four different sculptures and an artist book. The approach is tied to the allegoric thinking in building emblems and miniatures in the history of art (16th century and later). The use of diagrams is integrated in the experimental projections of a future archeology. The data of digital humanities research can achieve greater visibility and address a wider cultural context when presented in collaboration with art institutions.

Keywords: The observing strategy with continuous scanning and large sky coverage of the upcoming ground-based Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will make it a perfect tool in search of rare transients, such as Tidal Disruption Events (TDEs). Bright optical flares resulting from tidal disruption of stars by their host supermassive black hole (SMBH) can provide us with important information about the mass of the SMBH involved in the disruption and thus enable the study of quiescent SMBHs, which represent a large majority of SMBHs found in centres of galaxies. These types of transients are extremely rare, with only about few tens of candidates discovered so far. It is expected that the LSST will provide a large sample of new TDE light curves. Here we present simulations of TDE observations using an end-to-end LSST simulation framework. Based on the analysis of simulated light curves we estimate the number of TDEs with good quality light curves the LSST is expected to discover in 10 years of observations. In addition, we investigate whether TDEs observed by the LSST could be used to probe the SMBH mass distribution in the universe. The participation at this conference is supported by the Action CA16104 Gravitational waves, black holes and fundamental physics (GWverse), supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology).

Cyber security assessment education for e-governance systems
Sunil K. Muttoo, Rajan Gupta, Saibal K. Pal, 2020, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: Electronic Governance is being rapidly adopted across the world for providing seamless services to citizens. With rising digitization of information resources, the threats to the infrastructure and digital data are also growing. For developed nations, the security parameters and optimization processes are well tested and placed, but for developing nations these are yet to be addressed strongly. There is also a need for imparting awareness and educating personnel involved in the development and operations of E-Governance Systems. This study proposes a framework for security assessment amongst the departments of E-Governance, based on Information Systems principles. The major areas of security covered in the framework are related to the Hardware, Network, Software, Server & Data security, Physical Environment Security, and various policies for security of Information Systems at the organizational level. The suggestive framework has also been tested for an organization in India. It was found that, given the functionality & magnitude of the organization, the assessment framework was able to analyze the strength and weakness of an organization in an exhaustive manner. The coverage of technological and organizational measure was found to be 69% and 53% respectively and the organization was placed in top two zones of the proposed grid. This study will be useful for security assessment of various organizations operating under E-Governance.

Learning and developing with each other
Rajan Gupta, Saibal K. Pal, 2020, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: ICT is a powerful tool which can be used by both India and Canada to harness the growth and development in the respective regions. Researchers and practitioners can come together from Indo-Canadian communities and take the association to a more meaningful level. The current research discusses the ICT tools that can be adopted from Canada by India to improve the education quality and knowledge transmission. On the other hand, Canada government can make efforts to enhance knowledge transfer and translation through ICT by adopting tools like best practices repository, communities of practice, corporate intranet/extranet, corporate yellow pages, expertise locator, online chat/instant messaging, knowledge portals, groupware-workflow and tracking system, and document/content management that are already used in India. ICT has the potential to develop the country politically, socially, and economically.
