My Master’s Thesis

It was originally written in spanish, the abstract goes like:

En esta investigación se propone un marco de trabajo, basado en la aplicación de principios de Web Semántico y Folksonomías, para facilitar el manejo de la información consignada en los cuadernos de laboratorio. En esta tesis se estudia el problema de manejo de conocimiento en el escenario 16 de los cuadernos de laboratorio. Específicamente se reporta acerca de la aplicación de principios y prácticas de las folksonomías combinadas con tecnologías del Web semántico en este escenario. El propósito de esta tesis es facilitar la organización, clasificación y el compartir la información consignada en este tipo de documentos. La pregunta general de investigación planteada en esta tesis es: “Como organizar, clasificar y compartir la información consignada en los cuadernos de laboratorio?”

Abstract. By combining a complex mixture of electronic and paper-based records researchers carefully document their daily research activities. Although managing such a mixture is a common practice, much information recorded in laboratory notebooks in this manner is often lost for practical purposes. Moreover, lab notebooks are usually disconnected from other information resources that researchers frequently use. Interestingly, although Electronic Notebooks are available, these have not been widely adopted. Here we present our approach to the problem of managing knowledge in Electronic Laboratory Notebooks. We combine elements from the Semantic Web, e.g. ontologies supporting organization and classification, with elements from Social Tagging Availability: http://www.biotea.ws

We presented a paper at the ICBO2011 in Buffalo, NY:
