Two papers were presented at the WorldCIST'16 conference. One paper presents our results on the topic of privacy risks and mobile applications and the second introduces the partial results of our MiCorr research project on the non-invasive diagnostic of patrimonial objects.
De Santo A., Quiquerez B., Gaspoz C. Functionalities as superior predictor of applications privacy threats, In: Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing (in press).
Applications are invading our devices whether in our phones, computers and TVs or in our cars, appliances and cameras. Providing great benefits in terms of added functionalities and customization, these applications also put a lot of pressure on our privacy. In order to offer their services, these applications needs access to data stored on the devices or captured by various sensors. Currently all systems have implemented a permissions based framework for granting access to various data, based on the requests made by the applications. However, it is difficult for most users to make informed decisions when they are asked to grant these accesses. In this paper, we present a paradigm shift from a permissions to a functionalities framework. We show that users are consistent in understanding functionalities offered by applications and we propose an ontology for bridging the gap between understandable functionalities and technical permissions.

This paper was presented by Antoine Rosselet at the WorldCIST 2016 conference held at Recife, PE, Brazil, 22 - 24 March 2016.
Metal diagnosis of patrimonial objects is a difficult task performed by conservators, mainly due to the fact that invasive techniques are not allowed on these artifacts. Therefore, conservators have developed diagnosis methods based on the observation of the corrosion structures of the objects. However, although these methods are useful to share a common representation of one specific object, they are very difficult to use to compare or search for similar objects. To support the comparison of different objects, we propose a new support system built upon these methods. This paper presents an innovative way to use C-K theory in order to build an artifact in an interdisciplinary context. The resulting artifact integrates concepts and knowledge borrowed from both the conservation-restoration and the information systems fields.
