Paper Title:

Critical Parameters for Coupling and Cohesion of S/W Reusability Problem Domain

Abstract:   Interdependency between different s/w modules that are linked in specific application areas and/or dependent functions within single module, carry risks while they are adapted for s/w reusability. Coupling and cohesion are related terms that contribute a lot in s/w reusability. While well structured programs are risk free when used for specific application, huge s/w when developed for similar applications, then reusability of part of or full modules cause risks. Features like hardware capacity, operating system, file structure, network capability, interoperability, scalability and security (popularly known as ‘ilities’) are parameters that put in influences on the coupling and cohesion. This paper attempts to determine criticality of some of the parameters so as they form critical elements causing the risks on coupling and cohesion. Even though the paper does not present optimization techniques to consider these parameters for s/w reuse, the parametric study results will be of immense use to s/w reusability for obtaining optimum solutions. Experiments with four s/w modules written in Java have been carried out with different entities that form different coupling and cohesions. Observance from the results has yielded to identifying critical elements.

Paper Title:

Effective Routing Protocol (DSDV) for Mobile Ad Hoc Network

Abstract:    An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile hosts forming a temporary network without the aid of any centralized administration. In such a network, each node acts as both router and host simultaneously, the nodes can leave or join the network anytime. The routers are free to move. DSDV is developed on the basis of Bellman Ford routing algorithm with some modifications. In this routing protocol, each mobile node in the network keeps a routing table listing all the other nodes it has known either directly or through some neighbours. Every node has a single entry in the routing table. The entry will have information about the node’s IP address, last known sequence number and the hop count to reach that node. Along with these details the table also keeps track of the next hop neighbour to reach the destination node, the timestamp of the last update received for that node.  Information updates might either be periodic or event driven. DSDV protocol requires each mobile node in the network to advertise its own routing table to its current neighbours. The advertisement is done either by broadcasting or by multicasting.

Paper Title:

Formulation of the Internal Stress Equations of Pinned Portal Frames Putting Shear Deformation into Consideration

Abstract:     In this work the internal stress equations for pinned portal frames under different kinds of loading was formulated using the equilibrium method. Unlike similar equations in structural engineering textbooks these equations considered the effect of deformation due to shearing forces. This effect was captured in a dimensionless constant α, when α is set to zero, the effect of shear deformation is removed and the equations become the same as what can be obtained in any structural engineering textbook. An investigation into the effect of shear deformation on the internal stresses and its variation with the ratios of second moment of areas of the horizontal and vertical members of the frame ( I_2⁄I_1 ) and the ratio of height to length of the portal frame ( h⁄L) showed that the effect of shear deformation is generally small and can be conveniently neglected in manual calculations except for pinned portal frames under concentrated horizontal forces where the effect was considerable.

Data Mining and Service Customization in Leisure and Hospitality

Abstract:   This study provides insights into the relationship between data mining activities and the customization of the packages offered to tourists by hotels. Data mining provides a method of understanding the needs and habits of the tourists so that hotels can provide targeted value propositions to tourists from different geographies. For the study, ten prominent hotels around the country were selected and three employees from each hotel with information were interviewed to collect information about the data mining activities they perform. The study identifies that hotels give a high level of attention to data mining. Many of the hotels have suitable systems to capture the data of the guests, and have suitable staff to operate them. This indicates that data mining capabilities are either being built or are already in place in many of the hotels. It is also seen that hotels actively seek to customize the packages they offer to customers. All these eventually result in increased levels of long term customer loyalty. The regression analysis indicated a very strong relationship between data mining and the customization of service packages. The also study indicates that there is a significant correlation between the data mining activities of the hotels and the customized value and service offerings. This indicates that the hotels of the country are using data mining to develop customized service offerings. This is likely to benefit the hotels as well as Sri Lanka as a whole due to increased repeat visits by the tourists.

A Two-Warehouse Production Inventory Model with Variable Demand and Permissible Delay in Payment under Inflation

Abstract:    In this paper, a two-warehouse production inventory model is developed for deteriorating items with variable demand .The effect of permissible delay in payment is considered under inflation. Since, the capacity of any warehouse is limited, it has to rent warehouse (R.W) for storing the excess units over the fixed capacity of the own warehouse (O.W). On the basis of this fact, we have developed a two-warehouse production inventory model for deteriorating items under inflation & permissible delay in payment. The objective of this study is to derive the retailer’s optimal replenishment policy that minimizes the total relevant inventory costs. The necessary and sufficient conditions for an optimal solution are characterized. An algorithm is developed to find the optimal solution. Finally, numerical examples are provided to illustrate the proposed model. Sensitivity analysis is made and some managerial inferences are presented.

Run Time Evaluation by using Object Oriented Debugging Tool

Abstract:     In the process of Software Development and evolution, Developer has to answer multiple questions about how the code or software behaves at runtime and already many options available for debugging. Debugging is an essential part of programming language and what sets great programmers apart from average ones. Beginners are often pleased if a bug/virus that was seen earlier inexplicably disappears. Inexperienced programmers have a tendency to shy away from error messages or be frightened by observable errors, whereas skilled programmers rely heavily on error messages and he is aware about fixing of bugs by using different debugging tool. And programmer can easily detect and remove it at run time. The traditional or classical debugger while debugging gives developer bunch of breakpoints in the source code. Object based debugging offer, interruption when a given or a particular object is accessed or modified. Programmers, who try to find violations in such source code, need new tool that allows them to explore objects in the system effectively. The implementation of the proposed debugging described here offers programmers an effective tool which will allows searching of objects even for programs that have huge number of objects. Therefore Successful debugging tool involve efficient exploratory ability and a proper understanding of troubleshooting in programming code.

       Object based debugging offer, interruption when a given or a particular object is accessed or modified. Programmers,

A Three Engine Application Level Firewall for Web Servers

Abstract: Due to insufficient checks on input data in many web applications web servers remain prone to external tampering. This paper proposes ALF (application level firewall) to protect web systems with three new mechanisms. First, ALF provides a fine grained access control policy. Second, ALF allows web application developers to specify the restriction on application running parameters. Finally, ALF collects web user behavior statistics.

A Combined Approach of Data Mining Algorithms Based on Association Rule Mining and Rule Induction

Abstract:    Association rule learning is a popular method for discovering interesting relations between variables in large database. It is often used in market basket analysis domain e.g. if a customer buys onions and potatoes then he buys also beef. But, in fact, it can be implemented in various application areas where we want to discover the association between variables. The A PRIORI approach is certainly the most popular[1]. But, despite its good properties, this method has a drawback: the number of obtained rules can be very high. The ability to underline the most interesting rules, those which are relevant, becomes a major challenge. In this research work titled a hybrid approach based on Association Rule mining and Rule Induction in Data Mining we using induction algorithms and Association Rule mining algorithms as a hybrid approach to maximize the accurate result in fast processing time. This approach can obtain better result than previous work. This can also improves the traditional algorithms with good result. In the above section we will discuss how this approach results in a positive as compares to other approaches.

Study of a Queue Model Using an Estimation of Distribution Algorithm

Abstract:     An analysis of a queue model M/M/1 for an outpatient clinic was done considering no-shows from the patients. In order to detect how no-shows affect the performance measure, i.e., the doctor’s idle time on the patient-doctor system we consider analyzing the behavior of the patients when they have an appointment with a previous diagnostic successfully. The alternative approach was validated using a simulation model that was built through Delmia Quest® R20 and an Estimation of Distribution Algorithm to model the workflow in a small health clinic in México.

Influence of Information and Communication Technology in Health Sectors

Abstract:      This paper represents that how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is influencing the health services. Emergence of Internet has boosted the use of this technology and now this has become an imitable source of healthcare services. We have listed the technologies that are being used to cure the patient in various medical sectors and hospitals. Further, comparison between traditional methods of treatment and methods that include ICT, shows that it is beneficial to implement ICT to provide e-health services which helps developing countries to reduce cost of treatment. As obvious that installation cost is more but after implementation it becomes more facilitating solution.  Conclusion can be made that if technology is easy to understand, learn and implement as well as solves various problems at a one stretch then no harm in its procurement even though installation cost is a bit high because after effects are more beneficial.

Texture Segmentation: Different Methods

Abstract:       Image Segmentation is an important pixel base measurement of image processing, which often has a large impact on quantitative image analysis results. The texture is most important attribute in many image analysis or computer vision applications. The procedures developed for texture problem can be subdivided into four categories: structural approach, statistical approach, model based approach and filter based approach. Different definitions of texture are described, but more importance is given to filter based methods. Such as Fourier transform, Gabor, Thresholding, Histogram and wavelet transforms. These filters are used to VisTex images and Brodatz Textures Database. The main objective of this paper is to study different methods for texture segmentation.

A short survey of Advantages and Applications of Skip Graphs

Abstract:        Although the enormous growth of Internet, Social Network, Cloud Computing, etc. has brought the world closer and faster, major concern for computer experts is how to store such enormous amount of data especially in form of graphs. Further, data structure used for storage of such type of data should provide efficient format for fast retrieval of data as and when required. Although adjacency matrix is an effective technique to represent a graph having few or large number of nodes and vertices but when it comes to analysis of huge amount of data from site likes like face book or twitter, adjacency matrix cannot do this.  This paper provides a special kind of data structure, skip graph which can be efficiently used for storing such type of data resulting in optimal storage, space utilization and retrieval.

Time Varying Moving Object Acceleration/ Deceleration Detection in Region of Interest Using Motion of Center of Gravity

Abstract:         The basic focus of this research is to design an improved algorithm upon the existing algorithm to detect and index moving objects on the road. The algorithm in use involves both the image subtraction approach and image dilation method. The image sequences acquired through a digital video during the day time was processed to analyze the characteristics of object movement in the Region of Interest (ROI). Basically this developed program can index moving objects and remove unwanted noisy shadows within the ROI. In addition it also represents how objects enter into the ROI and how they exit from ROI. Moreover it can characterize a particular object’s moving directions and its characteristics such as velocity, acceleration and deceleration. Those features could also be derived from analyses of the images

Development of a Model for Determining Realistic Contract Period

Abstract:     The construction industry is very important to the economy in terms of employment and wealth but it is faced with numerous challenges which necessitate the need of taking measures to improve the management of construction projects. Building projects are normally realized by inputs from different experts in their areas of specialization. The many parties involved in the construction process shows how difficult it is to manage the process to a successful completion. Majority of projects are not completed within the agreed time due to unforeseen circumstances not included at the estimating stage. The study focused on developing tools for effective management of building construction projects in Kenya, as a means of helping to bring about improvements in project executions. Specifically, this is realized by developing regression models for realistic estimate of contract period.  A survey of construction practitioners in Mombasa was conducted. The sample consists of architects, engineers, contractors and quantity surveyors. Information was obtained on past building projects performance in terms of time and determination of the degree of influence of various factors at every stage of a building project. Multiple regression technique was used in the analysis of data for the study.Findings include regression models for realistic estimation of project time for residential houses, institutional buildings (education), industrial (factories), Hotel/motel and commercial (offices).

Paper Title:

Comparison of LSB Steganography in BMP and JPEG Images

Abstract:    The literature on information security has to consider innovative and continuously developing ways of protecting data from infiltration taking into consideration the speed of the processors and the cryptanalysis. New steganographical technologies have been created to provide security with or without data encryption including data hiding. Etymologically, the term ‘steganography’, which means ‘covered writing’, originates from the Greek words “stegos” (cover), and “grafia” (writing). Steganography operates to conceal a secret message rooted in various forms of media including image, video, audio, and text. The domain of information hiding utilizes several algorithms. The easiest and widely known technique is Least Significant Bit (LSB). This paper compares and analyses Least Significant Bit algorithm using the cover object as an image with a focus on two types: BMP and JPEG. The comparison and analysis are done with respect to a number of criteria to understand their strengths and weaknesses.

     Robustness, Steganalysis, Steganography, Steganographic, Unsuspicious.

Paper Title:

Intelligent Agents for the Semantic Annotation of Educational Resources

Abstract:     Our objective is to describe the content of educational resources semantically annotating with unambiguous information to facilitate the exploitation of these resources by software agents, these resources are delimited by tags (XHTML, XML), and are well structured. We propose a semantic annotation system based on three intelligent agents to manage semantic annotations educational resources, these annotations are guided by domain ontology. The domain ontology contains a set of concepts, relationships between these concepts and their properties. Each concept of ontology some have one or more (synonyms) to represent words. All these terms are used to describe instances of a domain concept; these terms are more focused in the description of concepts. All these concepts are validated by the domain expert. Taking into account that the teaching materials are in HTML or XML whose structure is a DOM (Document Object Model) we seek to identify the terms of educational concepts in the nodes of the tree, extract all these concepts while respect of the domain ontology. The terms or educational concepts candidates are associated with terms and concepts of the ontology to determine appropriate concepts to annotate nodes in which they are located.

Diagnosis of Neuromuscular Disorders Using Softcomputing Techniques

Abstract:  Biomedical signals are collection of electrical signals which generated from any organ that signal represents a physical variable of interest. Electromyography (EMG) is a technique for evaluating and recording of electrical activities produced from skeletal muscles. There are so many applications of EMG signals. Major interests lies in the field of clinical as well as biomedical engineering.EMG  is used as  a diagnostic tool for identifying  neuromuscular disorders .Motor unit action potentials (MUPS) provides information about neuromuscular disorders. Traditionally neurophysiologist can access MUPs information from their shapes and patterns using an oscilloscope. But MUPs  from different motor neurons will overlap leads to the formation of interference pattern and it is difficult to detect individual shapes accurately. For this reason a number of computer based quantitative EMG analysis algorithm have been developed. In this work, different types of learning methods were used to classify EMG signals. The model automatically classifies EMG signals into normal, myopathy and neuropathy. In order to extract useful information from the EMG signals different feature extraction methods such as discrete wavelet transform(DWT) and auto regressive modeling(AR)are implemented. Adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) with hybrid learning algorithm, support vector machine (SVM) and fuzzy support vector machine (FSVM) were compared in relation to their accuracy in the classification of EMG signals. Based on the impacts of features on the EMG signal classification, different results were obtained through analysis of the soft computing techniques.

MDT: Middle Tire Automation Testing Framework

Abstract:    Web Services innovations empower adaptable and alert interoperation of independent programming and informative data frameworks. An approach that could be utilized to test the strength and other identified quality of Web Services, Software. Analyzers are defied with extraordinary challenges in testing Web Services particularly while mixing to Services possessed by different outlets. Testers have multiple options to pick licensing or open source automation tools such as SOAP UI, Quick Test Professional (QTP) etc. based on their requirement. They are losing its market because of its limitations like supporting only windows environment, single database support and limited functionality. Additionally for using SOAP UI, Quick Test Professional (QTP) the tester must have knowledge of programming language to Create Project, Test cases, Method and Class.  Automated testing has particularly been a standout amongst the most complicated, yet most beneficial technologies for testing Web Services. This paper describes Middle-Tire Testing Tool for to automate the process of testing Software, Web Services with extra features. The system tries to build a tool on the top of the SOAP UI which will be the testing tool for Web Services.

A Novel RISC Processor with Crypto Specific Instruction Set

Abstract:      Old-time necessity for security and data protection against unauthorized access to classified information in many industries especially in military application is undeniably sobering. Hence, Cryptography plays a significantly important role in, the security of data transmission. On one hand, with developing computing technology, implementation of sophisticated cryptographic algorithms has become feasible. On the other hand, stronger cryptographic specifications are needed in order to be reluctant to possible threats. Some well-known examples of cryptographic algorithms are DES and AES. One of the main concerns in designing cryptographic algorithms is efficiency in either software or hardware implementation. General purpose processors are mostly used to speed up data manipulation and information processing in systems. Nevertheless, these processors are not performance efficient when they are utilized for data encryption and decryption. A novel RISC processor with Crypto Specific Instruction Set has been designed such that the processor is a Crypto Instruction-Aware RISC Processor, that makes the encryption and decryption processes of data faster, with the help of techniques like pipelining, register windows and a special architecture of barrel shifter. The main goal of this paper is to present a novel processor architecture being feasible for high speed implementation of low throughput cryptographic algorithms.

Paper Title:

Implementation Of High Reliable Fine Grain Fault Tolerance Redundant Technique For FPGA

Abstract:  SRAM based FPGAs are attractive to use in space applications because of more flexibility and reprogram ability. As technology size decreases below nanometer SRAM based FPGAs are more susceptible to radiation. These effects can cause transient or permanent bit flipping on SRAM cells and respectively change the function of logic elements within FPGAs. Fault-masking methodologies are essential, because it is vital for the system to work always properly irrespective of various faults that occurs in Complex digital circuitry. Due to this fact, redundancy techniques, which target fault masking and fault tolerance are in our scope.In this project we are proposing Quadruple Force Decide Redundancy (QFDR) a new approach in fault tolerance for mitigation problems in digital circuits, as simply replicating complete systems in Triple Modular Redundancy (TMR) technique may not be sufficient anymore when especially applies to the  space applications, failure rate increases because of second instance occurs before the first one recovers. It QFDR makes SRAM-based FPGAs effectively immune from SEU (Single Event Up-set) mitigation challenges.The proposed QFDR is operated at an abstraction level of CLBs of FPGA. The Quadruple Force Decide Redundancy (QFDR) is a redundant logical structure which quadruplicates logical functions and defines two different Force and Decide rules for different quadruple logic functions based on their level in design and then connects them together using special connection patterns. The complete logic of QFDR is implemented in VHDL. Modelsim Xilinx edition (MXE) will be used for simulation and functional verification. Xilinx ISE will be used for synthesis. Xilinx FPGA board will be used for testing and demonstration of the implemented system.

A Modified Differential Evolution Algorithm trained Pi-Sigma Neural Network for Pattern Classification

Abstract:   In this paper a modified differential evolution (DE) algorithm trained Pi-Sigma network (PSN) is used for classification. The used DE algorithm is a modification of traditional DE/rand/1/bin algorithm and novel mutation as well as crossover strategies are followed considering both exploration and exploitation. The performance of proposed methodology for pattern classification is evaluated through three well-known real world classification problems from UCI machine learning data library. The results obtained from the proposed method for classification is compared with results obtained by applying the two most popular variants of differential evolution algorithm (DE/rand/1/bin and DE/best/1/bin) and Chemical Reaction Optimization (CRO) algorithm. It is observed that the proposed method provides better classification accuracy than that of other methods.

Paper Title:

A Secure And Efficient Authentication Protocol Based On Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman Algorithm And Zero Knowledge Property

Abstract:    Elliptic curves have been extensively studied for over hundred years, originally pursued mainly for aesthetic reasons; elliptic curves have recently become a tool in several important applied areas, including coding theory, pseudo-random bit generation and number theory algorithms. Actually ECC is an alternative approach for traditional public key cryptography like RSA, DSA and DH. It provides the highest strength-per-bit of any cryptosystem known today with smaller key size resulting in faster computations, lower power assumption and memory. Another advantage is that authentication protocols based on ECC are secure enough even if a small key size is used. It also provides a methodology for obtaining high speed, efficient and scalable implementations of protocols for authentication and key agreement. The present paper consists of an introduction to elliptic curves and an authentication protocol based on ECC and zero knowledge property. The protocol is developed for group communication where every person of the group has a secret information and the communication starts when all this information is put together. If one person is not online, the others cannot communicate.

Transportation Noise and Vibration-Sources, Prediction, and Control

Abstract:  A major part of the world energy consumption is related to transportation. The extensive use of automobile vehicles causes harmful effects on the surrounding environment. The 20-25% of the total greenhouse gas emission in industrialized countries is generated by transportation. Vehicle noise (NVH) is becoming the most important factor to customers.  The transportation noise is one of the major sources of noise exposure in residential areas and causes substantial annoyance during night. Noise is unwanted sound; vibration is the oscillation that is typically felt rather than heard. Harshness is generally used to describe the severity and discomfort associated with unwanted sound and/or vibration, especially from short duration events. Considering this, many countries have implemented legislation limiting the noise levels in residential areas. For today’s compact era the trend towards compact power units is substantially increased resulting in components/vehicles running at higher level of noise and vibrations.Vehicle manufacturers work with noise and vibration control to fulfil legislation demands and to meet customer requirements. The exterior noise control work is mainly motivated by legislation demands while interior noise and vibration control work is motivated by driver and passenger noise and vibration comfort requirements.The motivation for reducing traffic noise is that it is the most important environmental noise source in Europe and in the rest of the world. About 25 % of the population in Europe is exposed to transportation noise with an equivalent sound level over 65 dB(A). At this sound level sleep is seriously disturbed and most people become annoyed .

Distributed Transaction System Application Using Design Pattern

Abstract:   Distributed Systems are helpful in gathering and processing information about customers or users of a particular domain by means of efficient communication techniques between Models for an effective sharing of resources. Extraction of relevant data from enormous volume of data has become a tedious task in today’s world. Distributing System reduces the complexity of the task by assisting the users to obtain the relevant information from various data sources.  Distributed System that fills the gap between a customer and resource provider through various Models communications in the specific domain is proposed which has a service requestor module which can access the services offered by the system by making request with Interface. Also this system is made up of a number of role based Models which provide services such as user registration, authorization,&after successful validation, user access the functions. In this paper we have discussed detail working of a distributed system application that we have developed using different design patterns.

Using Artificial Neural Network(ANN) Machinability Investigation Of Yttria Based Zirconia Toughness Alumina (Y-ZTA) Ceramic Insert

Abstract:     A back propagation neural network model has been developed for the machinability evaluation i.e flank wear, cutting force and surface roughness prediction of Zirconia Toughness Alumina(ZTA) inserting in turning process. Numerous experiments have been performed on AISI 4340 steel using developed yttria based ZTA inserts. These inserts are constructed through wet chemical co-precipitation route followed by powder metallurgy process. Process parametric conditions such as cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut are nominated as input to the neural network model and flank wear, surface roughness and cutting force of the inserts corresponding to these conditions has been selected separately as the output of the network. The experimentally calculated values are used to train the feed forward back propagation artificial neural network(ANN) for forecasting. The mean square error both in training and testing results positively. The performance of the trained neural network has been confirmed with experimental data. The results reveal that the machining model is acceptable and the optimization technique satisfies practical prospects.

Paper Title:

Design and Development Of MOKHTAR  Wind Tracker

Abstract:  This work presents the design and development of a wind tracker (MOKHTAR ) with implementation of Zigzag and Spiral algorithms for detecting the wind source. For odor tracking research the Wind tracking is important. A novel wind flow and direction sensor based on an array of  Evaporative Heat Rejection Devices (EHRD) such as the ones used in cooling towers is developed during the present work. The developed sensor is installed on the wind tracker (MOKHTAR). MOKHTAR seeks the location of the wind source with Zig-Zag and Spiral tracking algorithms. Both the Zig Zag and Spiral algorithms are implemented and their performance is compared with respect to step size, time taken and the probability of reaching the wind source. Finally, results of path monitoring for comparison between the two algorithms are shown. The proposed system is used on a robot vehicle as the initial stage of plume tracking activity. Moreover, the proposed  wind sensor array can be used in the meteorological and environmental studies

Predicton With Smart Phones

Abstract:   This paper predicts two aspects of human behavior using smart phones as sensing devices. This paper introduces a method for predicting where users will go and which application they will use next by exploiting the rich contextual information from smart phone sensors. Our first goal is to understand which smart phone sensor data types are important for the two prediction tasks. Secondly, we aim at extracting user independent behavioral patterns and study how user independent behavior models can improve the predictive performance.

Parallel and Digit-Serial Implementations of Area- Efficient 3-Operand Decimal Adders

Abstract:    In this paper, parallel and digit-serial implementations of area-efficient 3-operand decimal adders are proposed. By using proposed analyzer circuits and the generation of correction terms with recursive schemes, our proposed decimal adders could perform efficient additions with three operands. Unit gate estimates and synthesis results show that our proposed adders are more area-efficient than those previously proposed decimal adders with three operands under the same delay constraints. Also the power consumptions for our decimal adders are lesser. In addition to parallel implementations, the digit-serial 3-operand adders are easily developed to increase the throughput and the operating frequency due to area efficiency. Our proposed decimal adders could be applied to ease the tremendous computation efforts for decimal computations such as multi-operand decimal additions, decimal multiplications and divisions.

Survey on Lightweight Block Cipher

Abstract:     With the rapid advances in wireless networks low-end devices, such as RFID tags, wireless sensor nodes are deployed in increasing numbers each and every day. Such devices are used in many applications and environments, leading to an ever increasing need to provide security. When choosing security algorithms for resource-limited devices the implementation cost should be taken into account, In order to satisfy these need, secure and efficient encryption and authentication schemes have to be developed.  Symmetric-key algorithms, especially lightweight block ciphers, still play an important role to provide confidentiality in the said applications. In this paper, a survey of several existing light weight block ciphers has been provided.

Paper Title:

Data Integrity Verification by Third Party Auditor in Remote Data Cloud

Abstract:   Cloud Computing gets its name as a metaphor for the internet. It is the next generation platform to provide resources as the services to the end users. In cloud storage system, the clients store their data in the server without keeping a local copy. Clients store their data in the private clouds but when storage expansion is needed they move to public clouds. Security is the major concern in the public clouds. The security mechanisms for private and public clouds are different. It may be possible that an unauthorized user can access the data from the public clouds. Hence, it is of critical importance that the client should be able to verify the integrity of the data stored in the remote un-trusted server. There may be security services offered by public clouds but they are not sufficient. In order to address the security issues, Trusted Third Party Auditing (TPA) is used as a service for private and public clouds, which offers various services to check for the integrity of the data. TPA mechanisms offer various auditing mechanisms such as read, write, update to verify the integrity of the data stored in the public clouds. We present such an auditing model based on Merkle Hash Tree. In this work we will conduct a study on possible auditing mechanisms which can be offers as a service over hybrid/public clouds. Such services can be subscribed by the users to verify the integrity of the data stored in the public clouds.

Paper Title:

Organizing Information in the Blogosphere: The Use of Unsupervised Approach

Abstract:    This study covers the learning approaches discussed by the information retrieval community in categorising texts with a specific focus given to blogs within the last ten years. Early research studies were solely focused on general text classification and these techniques were later improved, and applied to classify webpages, and then to blogs due to the similarity of textual content present in these items. We review how blog classification techniques have evolved from the foremost text classification techniques to the recent ones and discuss the future research directions.

Electronic Noses Application to Food Analysis Using Metal Oxide Sensors: A Review

Abstract:     Electronic noses employs different types of electronic gas sensors that have partial specificity and an appropriate pattern recognition techniques capable of recognizing simple and complex odors. This paper focuses on use of electronic noses that use metal oxide gas sensors. In this paper,we present the quality assessment applications to food and beverages, that includes determination of freshness and identification of spoilage, polluted, contaminated , unhygienic or adulteration in the food. The applications of electronic noses to a wide collection of food and beverages are considered, that consists of fruits, milk and dairy products, fresh vegetables, eggs, meat, fish, grains, alcoholic drinks and non-alcoholic drinks.

Paper Title:

Design of GA based PID Controller for three tank system with various Performance Indices

Abstract:      Proportional–integral-derivative (PID) controllers tuning is a challenging aspect for researchers and process operators. This paper proposes PID controller tuning of a three tank level process using genetic algorithm. Genetic algorithms are based on the principle of genetics and evolution and stand up as a powerful tool for solving search and optimization problems. Selection, crossover and mutation are three basic genetic operators for functioning of the algorithm. Optimization of PID parameters is evaluated using genetic algorithm with various performance indices i.e. ISE, ITAE, IAE and IME. Also the responses of three tank level process using genetic PID controller with various performance indices are analyzed and compared. Analysis is performed through computer simulation using Matlab/Simulink toolbox. The comparative study shows that the application of genetic algorithm based PID controller with ISE index gives the best performance compared to other indices for three tank level process.

Paper Title:

Design and Performance Antenna Diversity for MIMO WiMAX Mobile Terminals

Abstract:  New evolutions in wireless communications have shown using multiple antenna elements at both transmitter and the receiver, it is possible to substantially increase the capacity in a wireless communication system without increasing the transmission power and bandwidth. This system with multiple antenna elements at both link-ends is termed the MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) system. In spite of considerable research being done on MIMO systems; the design of realistic diversity antennas on mobile terminals for MIMO systems remains a challenging issue. The main challenge in designing two or more antennas on a small mobile terminal is to achieve a high isolation between the antennas. It is very difficult to achieve a high isolation with the existing handset antennas. This article presents the performance analysis of the multiple-input-multiple-output Diversity antenna fornext generation WiMAX mobile handset applications Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA). Antenna structures considering the practical ground size of a mobile handset proposed to estimate the proposed structures, mutual coupling and envelope correlations were considered. Also the diversity gain and correlation were measured from simulation result. The relationships between all parameters were analyzed based on the measured results.

Student's Performance Measuring using Assistant Algorithm

Abstract:   The main theme of school education management is always willing to impart quality education to its students. In this paper we focused higher level to apply Data Mining techniques for implementing and give a quality in technical education. Many ways to achieve to the highest level of quality in technical education as well as increase the student's academic performance and predict that performed and underperformed of the student's for providing training and placement. In our work the data set can be prepared from student's academic's (technical training or higher education) like a student's roll no., student's name, student’s date of birth, student's10th, student's 12th, academic percentage upto 7th semester student's database have to take. In this paper we propose to create a data set for five departments , we have taken (CSE, IT, ECE, EEE, MECH) each department 10 students were taken in preparing the data set , after preprocessing the data set final data can be obtained for training and placement from performing and underperformed student's from each department . In Educational Data Mining knowledge is hidden we can retrieve the knowledge through data mining techniques. By this process we extract knowledge that measure student's performance at the end of the semester examination. It helps earlier in identifying performed and underperformed student's who needs a special attention in academic wise and based on that we give training and placement for the student's. Classification method , decision tree , ASSISTANT algorithm were used In future this study will be assisted to develop new concepts of data mining techniques in technical education

Paper Title:

A Model Based Approach for Gait Recognition System

Abstract:    In this paper, we propose a model based approach for gait recognition using the mathematical theory of geometry and image processing techniques. In such approach, feature matrices used for gait recognition are constructed using segmentation, Hough transform and corner detection techniques. Indeed, it is possible to recognize a subject by analyzing the gait parameters extracted from his footsteps taken in different frames. In the preprocessing stage, the picture frames taken from video sequences are inputted to Canny Edge detection algorithm in order to detect the image edges and to reduce the noise by means of Gaussian filtering. The Hough transform is then applied to isolate the features of the preprocessing output and to get a gait model. The latter is used to extract the gait parameters, and the Harris Corner Detection technique is used to detect the corners and to generate the feature points. The gait parameters are measured by means of feature points and then stored in a gait database. Using a gait recognition interface the random subjects parameters are compared against a template set in the available database for recognition. In the proposed method, we have considered a database including ten subjects and a five parameters based gait recognition system. It is worth noting to remark that when the camera is placed at 90 and 270 degrees towards the subject, all the recognition parameters are clearly visible, measurable and lead to have more than 80% accuracy in recognition results.

Helping Hands: Enabling the Disabled

Abstract:     A major community in the world population is of physically handicapped and blind people. These people cannot access the computers due to their disabilities. There is a need of some technology which allows these people to get access of the mouse and keyboard without using hands and eyes. This paper gives us the brief introduction of a technology which is intended to help handicapped in getting access of the basic technologies. This technology uses the head mouse technology by which the real time head movements of the computer user is translated into a directly proportional cursor movement of the computer mouse. This technology also provides an interface for the user to handle the click event of the computer. A handicapped user can access the mouse of the computer without using hands. The other module of this system is the speech recognition technology which allows the computer user to give commands to the system by using the keywords specified in the natural language. A blind user can give speech commands to the computer allowing him to access different applications of the computer. This system also provides a screen reader to the user which can read different documents, internet files, emails of the user.

  A handicapped user can access the mouse of the computer without using hands.

GA-SVM and MLP-BBO to estimate Robot Manipulator Joint Angles

Abstract:      The kinematic of serial manipulators comprises the study of the relations between joint variables and Cartesian variables. We distinguish two problems, commonly referred to as the direct and inverse kinematic problems. The former reduces matrix multiplications, and poses no major problem. The inverse kinematic problems, however, is more challenging, for it involves intensive variable-elimination and nonlinear-equation solving. In this work, we have used Support Vector Machine with Genetic Algorithm and and Multi Layer Perceptron (MLP) with Biogeography-Based Optimization(BBO) to solve the inverse problem on a manipulator arm, to determine its various articulations.

Paper Title:

Optimal Tuning of PI Controller using Bacterial Foraging Algorithms for Power Electronic Converter

Abstract:  DC-DC converters are widely used in application such as computer peripheral power supplies, car auxiliary power supplies and medical equipments.  Positive output element Luo converter performs the conversion from positive source voltage to positive load voltage. Due to the time- varying and switching nature of the power electronic converters, their dynamic behaviour is highly non-linear. Conventional controllers are incapable of providing good dynamic performance and hence optimized techniques have been developed to tune the PI parameter. In this work, Bacterial Foraging (BF) algorithm and Modified Bacterial Foraging (MBF) algorithm are developed for PI optimization.  Simulation results show that the performances of BF-PI and MBF-PI controllers are better than those obtained by the classical ZN-PI controller.

Paper Title:

Suspended Solid Measurement System with Two Frequency Four Beam Technique for Distillery Spent Wash

Abstract:   An attempt has been made to measure suspended particles in the effluent from Sugar factories and distilleries. Waste water generation and its subsequent treatment is major problem for  distillery industry  and society as well. The effluent is generated in large amount and therefore prior to treatment, the effluent need to be monitored so as to permit their discharge into the local water sources or in a land.  The comparison of conventional method used in distillery for the measurement of suspended solid and outcome of experimental procedure used is discussed in this paper. Basically, the incident light source, detection angle of detector, and ratioing are the important aspects which affects on optimization, performance and consistency of the measurement system. These aspects are concentrated mainly for precise measurement. Intensity of light scattered by the sample under defined condition with the intensity of light transmitted by the standard reference suspension under the same condition is studied. The conventional suspended solid measurement requires 4-5 hours where this system may take 4-5 minute.  This technique will offer the potential for reliable for distillery industrial process measurement, and to follow the standard environmental norms prescribed by regulatory authority before depriving from distillery column, which would otherwise require for the pretreatment and controlling in the said industry.
