Ontology assisted query reformulation using the semantic and assertion capabilities of OWL-DL ontologies (2008)
Conference Proceeding
Munir, K., Odeh, M., & McClatchey, R. (2008). Ontology assisted query reformulation using the semantic and assertion capabilities of OWL-DL ontologies. https://doi.org/10.1145/1451940.1451953

End users of recent biomedical information systems are often unaware of the storage structure and access mechanisms of the underlying data sources and can require simplified mechanisms for writing domain specific complex queries. This research aims t... Read More about Ontology assisted query reformulation using the semantic and assertion capabilities of OWL-DL ontologies.

Semantic matching for the medical domain (2008)
Journal Article
Shamdasani, J., Shamdasani, J., Bloodsworth, P., & McClatchey, R. (2008). Semantic matching for the medical domain. Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, 5071 LNCS, 198-202. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-540-70504-8_21

This paper proposes some modifications to the SMatch algorithm that enables the semantic matching of medical terminologies using the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) as a source of background knowledge. Semantic Matching is the process of disco... Read More about Semantic matching for the medical domain.

Using assertion capabilities of an OWL-based ontology for query formulation (2008)
Conference Proceeding
Munir, K., Odeh, M., Bloodsworth, P., & McClatchey, R. (2008). Using assertion capabilities of an OWL-based ontology for query formulation. https://doi.org/10.1109/ICTTA.2008.4530296

This paper reports on the development of a framework to assist users in formulating relational queries without requiring a complete knowledge of the information structure and access mechanisms to underlying data sources. The emphasis here is on explo... Read More about Using assertion capabilities of an OWL-based ontology for query formulation.

Presentation / Conference
Hauer, T., Branson, A., Rogulin, D., McClatchey, R., & Shamdasani, J. (2008, June). Medical data integration and the semantic annotation of medical protocols. Paper presented at 21st IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems, 2008. CBMS '08

The CMS experiment at the CERN LHC (2008)
Journal Article
McClatchey, R. (2008). The CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. Journal of Instrumentation, 3(S08004),

The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector is described. The detector operates at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It was conceived to study proton-proton (and leadlead) collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 14 TeV (5.5 TeV nucleon-nucleon)... Read More about The CMS experiment at the CERN LHC.
