Bigraphical Logics for XML

Conforti, G., Macedonio, D. and Sassone, V. (2005) Bigraphical Logics for XML At 13th Symposium on Advanced Database Systems, SEDB 2005.. , pp. 392-399.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Bigraphs have been recently proposed as a meta-model for global computing resources; they are built orthogonally on two structures: a hierarchical ‘place’ graph for locations and a ‘link’ (hyper-)graph for connections. XML is now the standard meta-language for the data exchange and storage on the web. In this paper we address the similarities between bigraphs and XML and we propose bigraphs as a rich model for XML (and XML contexts). Building on this idea we proceed by investigating how the recently proposed logic of BiLog can be instantiated to describe, query and reason about web data (and web contexts).
