Query Processing of Geosocial Data in Location-Based Social Networks

Arianna D'UliziaFernando Ferri e Patrizia Grifoni, have published in the prestigious magazine MDPI - Academic Open Access Publishing, an article entitled: Query Processing of Geosocial Data in Location-Based Social Networks

"… The increasing use of social media and the recent advances in geo-positioning technologies have produced a great amount of geosocial data, consisting of spatial, textual, and social information, to be managed and queried. In this paper, we focus on the issue of query processing by providing a systematic literature review of geosocial data representations, query processing methods, and evaluation approaches published over the last two decades (2000–2020). The result of our analysis shows the categories of geosocial queries proposed by the surveyed studies, the query primitives and the kind of access method used to retrieve the result of the queries, the common evaluation metrics and datasets used to evaluate the performance of the query processing methods, and the main open challenges that should be faced in the near future. Due to the ongoing interest in this research topic, the results of this survey are valuable to many researchers and practitioners by gaining an in-depth understanding of the geosocial querying process and its applications and possible future perspectives ...

The challenges of anti-Gypsyism

Sandro Turcio has published on the blog of the CNR-IRPPSWelfare Post, an article entitled "The challenges of anti-Gypsyism"

“… In Italy live about 150-180 thousand Roma, Sinti and Caminanti (RSC), equal to no more than 0,3% of the Italian population. This is one of the lowest percentages in Europe: if we were like Bulgaria or Macedonia, the Roma would have to be around 6 million. In Europe, the Romani population is estimated at 11,3 million people, while in the European Union the average estimate is 6,2 million people, equal to about 1,2% of the population ”.

The public discourse on immigration in Italian school textbooks

Adriana ValenteValentina Tudisca e Silvia Carvita have published an article in the magazine "Migrated Worlds"Edited by FrancoAngeli Publisher presenting the results of the research on the representation of migrations in the textbooks of Italian secondary schools, conducted by the research group AS IF of the CNR-IRPPS, as part of the project "Imago Migrantis"

"… The authors present an analysis of the most used History and Geography manuals in Italian secondary schools in the 2016-2017 school year aimed at investigating the representation of migrants and migrations through images and texts. Textbooks are in fact a type of media that can affect public discourse in presenting a certain vision of society to those who will be future citizens, conveying systems of values ​​in an explicit and implicit way. In this sense, they can act as building tools of support for power or cultural resistance, an aspect that is reflected in the so-called “delay in didactic transposition”, which helps to understand the relationship between knowledge and values. Given their "political" character, albeit cloaked in an institutional authority, it is important to reflect on this type of media in a critical way, in particular with regard to the promotion of discrimination and stereotypes. Among the results that emerged from the study, a narrative that describes migrants mainly as "victims" and as a resource (especially economic) for the country of destination, although there is no lack of representation in terms of the problem, while it is difficult to leave room for the issue of rights humans. At the same time, the images convey a predominantly "masculine" representation that tends to "veil" the presence of women, in contrast with the data, but with some elements that the authors consider to be of evolution.

Countering violence against women, actors, processes and practices of an evolving field

Gender-based violence, and specifically that against women, represents a complex issue that requires the commitment of many subjects, specialized and non-specialized, to be addressed and removed.
