Title : Multihop Multi-Channel Distributed QOS Scheduling MAC Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks
Country : India
Authors : Kumaraswamy M || Shaila K || Tejaswi V || Venugopal K R || S S Iyengar || L M Patnaik

Abstract: In this paper, we propose a Multihop Multi-Channel Distributed QoS Scheduling MAC scheme (MMDQS-MAC) to improve the network performance of WSNs, which selects the best channel for an individual wireless sensor node. MMDQS-MAC supports dynamic channel assignment mechanism where each sensor node is equipped with a directional antennas. The proposed protocol helps to decrease the probability of collision, interferences and improves the overall network performance of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The protocol is most suitable for short packet transmission under low traffic networks and has ability to utilize parallel transmission among neighboring nodes and achieves increased energy efficiency when multi-channels are available. Simulation result shows that the proposed protocol improves the performance of aggregate throughput, probability of successful transmission, packet delivery ratio, energy consumption and average end-to-end delay.

Title : DSNs & X.400 assist in ensuring email reliability
Country : Iraq
Authors : Bassam Talib Sabri

Abstract: While email is fairly reliable, messages do get lost. This can be due to the store-and-forward nature of e- mail, which passes responsibility for delivering email from one mail server to another, but in doing so exposes messages to loss, should a server not fulfil its responsibility. Some end users are more sensitive to email unreliability than others, and seek tools with which they can detect and recover from email failures. This paper describes tools that allow email sending software to automatically respond to reports of undeliverability by persisting with retransmission or retransmitting to alternate recipients.

Title : A Novel Approach for Workload Optimization and Improving Security in Cloud Computing Environments
Country : India
Authors : Atul U. Patil || A.P.Pande || R.U.Patil

Abstract: This paper discusses a propose cloud infrastructure that combines On-Demand allocation of resources with improved utilization, opportunistic provisioning of cycles from idle cloud nodes to other processes.Because for cloud computing to avail all the demanded services to the cloud consumers is very difficult. It is a major issue to meet cloud consumer's requirements. Hence On-Demand cloud infrastructure using Hadoop configuration with improved CPU utilization and storage utilization is proposed using splitting algorithm by using Map-Reduce. Henceall cloud nodes which remains idle are all in use and also improvement in security challenges and achieves load balancing and fast processing of large data in less amount of time. Here we compare the FTP and HDFS for file uploading and file downloading; and enhance the CPU utilization and storage utilization. Cloud computing moves the application software and databases to the large data centres, where the management of the data and services may not be fully trustworthy. Therefore this security problem is solve by encrypting the data using encryption/decryption algorithm and Map-Reducing algorithm which solve the problem of utilization of all idle cloud nodes for larger data.

Title : Blind Signature Scheme Based On Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC)
Country : India
Authors : Preeti Singh

Abstract:Blind signature is a concept to ensure anonymity of e-coins. Untracebility and unlinkability are ttwo main properties of real coins and should also be mimicked electronicaly. A user has fulfill above two properties of blind signature for permission to send an e-coins. During the last few years, asymmetric cryptography based on curve based cryptography have becomes very popular, especially for embedded applications. Elliptical curves cryptography (CC) are the special case of elliptical curves (EC). EC operand size is only a fraction of the EC operand Size. EC Cryptography needs a group order of size atleast 2160. In Particular for a cuve of genus two field Fq with p long operands. Which is much better than the RSA using 1024 bit key length. The elliptic curve is best suited for the resource constraint environment s. It uses lesser key and provides more secure transmission of data.

Title : Design & Development of an Advanced Database Management System Using Multiversion Concurrency Control Model for a Multiprogramming Environment
Country : India
Authors : Mohammed Waheeduddin Hussain || Prof. P. Premchand || Dr. G. Manoj Someswar

Abstract: Multi Version Concurrency Control (MVCC) is a locking scheme commonly used by modern database implementations to control fast, safe concurrent access to shared data. MVCC is designed to provide the following features for concurrent access: a. Readers that don't block writersb. Writers that fail fastMVCC achieves this by using data versioning and copying for concurrent writers. The theory is that readers continue reading shared state, while writers copy the shared state, increment a version id, and write that shared state back after verifying that the version is still valid (i.e., another concurrent writer has not changed this state first). This allows readers to continue reading while not preventing writers from writing and repeatable read semantics are maintained by allowing readers to read off the old version of the state.

Title : Car Dynamics using Quarter Model and Passive Suspension, Part VI: Sprung-mass Step Response
Country : Egypt
Authors : Galal Ali Hassaan

Abstract: The objective of the paper is to investigate the step response of a 2 DOF quarter-car model with passive suspension. The mathematical models of the sprung-mass displacement and acceleration as response to the step road disturbance are derived. The step response of the system is plotted using MATLAB for a 100 mm step amplitude. The effect of the suspension parameters on the step response of the sprung-mass is investigated in terms of motion displacement and acceleration. The maximum percentage overshoot and settling time of the step response are evaluated as time-based characteristics of the dynamic system for a specific range of the suspension parameters. The maximum acceleration of the sprung-mass due to the step road disturbance did not conform with the ride comfort requirements according to ISO 2631-1 standard .

Title : Back-Propagation Neural Network Learning with Preserved Privacy using Cloud Computing
Country : India
Authors : Mrs. Valli N || Mr. H.Anwar Basha

Abstract: Cloud computing facilitates the owners to share data. Multiple parties join the learning process by conducting joint Back propagation neural network algorithm on the union of their respective data sets. During the learning process none of the party wants to disclose her/his private data to others. The limitations of the existing schemes are learning process for only two parties or the few ways in which the data is arbitrarily partitioned. The proposed solution allows two or more parties, each with an arbitrarily partitioned data set, to jointly conduct the learning. The solution is provided by the magnificent power of cloud computing. In the proposed scheme, each owner encrypts his/her private dataset locally through AES cryptography and uploads the cipher texts into the cloud. The cloud then executes most of the operations over cipher texts via BGN homomorphic algorithm. The cloud is unaware of the original dataset. The Back propagation learning takes place and the owners are benefited through collaborative learning. Thus the scalability of the learning process is improved and the privacy of the data is ensured.

Title : Image Noise Removal by Dual Threshold Median Filter for RVIN
Country : India
Authors : Namrata Shelke || Manisha Pariyani

Abstract:Removal of random valued impulse noise in digital images with edge preservation is one of the challenging tasks in digital image processing. For removal of impulse noise as well as preserve edge proposed a new filter that is Dual Threshold Median Filter (DTMF). The removal of impulse noise is done in two main stages, firstly, the detection of the impulse noise on the basis of maximum and minimum value of pixels in a 3X3 window. In the second stage, removal of impulse noise by using of median filter. In the filtering stage, the noisefree pixels remain unchanged in the low noise density, but in case of high noise density that is very difficult of identify the noisy pixel or edge of the image, this difficulty is remove by our proposed filter. The experimental outcome of our proposed filter is superior to the previous methods in terms of Peak Signal Noise Ratio and Mean Square Error of the different testing images, with different noise density level. The mathematical analysis describes that the analysis of the noisy pixels and use of noise-free pixels for the de - noising purpose provide better results and provides better visual quality of de-noised image.

Title : Performance Evaluation of the Bingo Electronic Voting Protocol
Country : Egypt
Authors : Waleed A. Naji || Sherif Khattab || Fatma A. Omara

Abstract: Research in e-voting aims at designing usable and secure electronic voting systems. This paper provides an empirical analysis of the computational performance of a prototype implementation of the Bingo electronic voting protocol. Bingo is a receipt-based end-to-end verifiable electronic voting protocol that claims the property of coercion resistance. According to this work, a prototype of the Bingo design has been described in terms of sequence and class diagrams. Also, its operation has been demonstrated using a case study of a sample election. Four main operations have been analyzed; initialization of cyclic groups, generation of dummy votes, zero-knowledge proof of fair vote distribution over candidates, and zero-knowledge proof of receipt correctness. The performance was affected by the cyclic group order, number of candidates, and number of voters.

Keywords: E-voting, Bingo voting, coercion resistance, zero-knowledge proof, commitments.
