Paper Title:

SSViewer: Sequence Structure Viewer

Abstract:   An important aspect of bioinformatics is sequence. Sequence is a discrete function which contains the combinations of amino acids in proteins and nucleotides in Dna. Important functions of Amino Acids are to serve as the building blocks of proteins, which are linear chains of amino acids. Amino acids can be linked together in varying sequences to form a vast variety of proteins. Twenty-two amino acids are naturally incorporated into polypeptides and are called protein-o-genic or standard amino acids. Of these, 20 are encoded by the universal genetic code. In the case of the DNA sequence A, T, G, C is used to represent DNA. This sequence information is analysed to determine genes that encode polypeptides (proteins), RNA, genes, regulatory sequences, structural motifs, repetitive sequences and DNA  sequences can be accurately analysed  using computational techniques like BLAST, FASTA which is not possible  manually. In the present study we developed a tool to visualize the 3D structure for a given sequence by using programming language Java and HTML.

Paper Title:

A Novel Approach to Face Recognition with Pose and Illumination Variation Using Support Vector Machine as Classifier

Abstract:   Human face recognition has attracted significant consideration as one of the most effective applications of image analysis and understanding. Face recognition is one among the diverse techniques used to  identify an individual.  Pose and Illumination are the two major challenges, among the several factors that influence face recognition. The objective of this paper  is to implement an automated machine supported Face recognition System that recognizes well the identity of a person in the images that were not used in a training phase That is an initialization and training by representative sample of images precede an evaluation phase. Pose and illumination variations severely affect the performance of face recognition. Feature Extraction and Dimensionality Reduction is applied using   Principal Component Analysis(PCA) and Linear Discriminant Analysis(LDA). During Recognition phase   different classifiers  such as  ANFIS(Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inferrence Engine), NN(Neural Network), SVM (Support Vector Machine), K-NN(K- Nearest Neighbourhood) algorithms are  used to the  analyze   and evaluate   the Recognition Rate.

Genetic Algorithm for Solving Balanced Transportation Problem

Abstract:   A Transportation Problem  is one of the most typical problems being encountered in many situations and it has many practical applications. Many researches had been conducted and many methods had been proposed to solve it. One of the most difficult challenge in solving the problem deals with inputting a very large volume of data.  With the development of intelligent technologies, computers had already been used to solved this problem. This paper presents a method using Genetic Algorithm (GA) to provide a new tool that can quickly calculate the solution to the Balanced Transportation Problem. The test results are compared with selected old methods to confirm the effectiveness of the use of GA. A mathematical model was used to  represent the GA and be applied to solve it. Finally, the test results of the model were presented so show the effectiveness.

Comparison of Different Channel Estimation Techniques in OFDM Systems

Abstract:   The present work addresses channel estimation based on the Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) and Least Square (LS) criteria and also considers time-domain channel statistics. It presents an optimal criterion for the pilots, and corresponding optimal designs enabling complexity reductions. Using a general model for a slowly fading channel, the MMSE and LS estimators and a method for modifications compromising between complexity and performance is presented. The symbol error rate for a 16-QAM system is estimated by means of simulation results. MMSE (minimum mean square error) and LS (least square) estimators are also examined. The MMSE estimator has good performance but high complexity. The LS estimator has low complexity, but its performance is not as good as that of the MMSE estimator. Comparison is done for both types of estimators for channel estimation and the results are observed, considering the performances of channel estimators according to their behavior to symbol error rate and mean square error. Therefore, SNR of different estimators is studied corresponding to the particular SER value. OFDM-based systems are generally used in time varying frequency selective fading channels. In order to achieve the potential advantages of OFDM-based systems, the channel coefficients should be estimated with minimum error. Finally, it is concluded that modified estimators give better performance than the ordinary estimators in OFDM systems.

An Optimized Vertical Fragmentation Approach

Abstract:   Vertical fragmentation in databases is considered as a difficult problem; it has attracted the interest of many researchers and has been the subject of several studies. In the literature, these studies suggest approaches to solving the problem of vertical fragmentation, these approaches always provide a solution, but we find no indication about the relevance of solutions, nor any clue about their qualities. In this study we propose an algorithm that seems be best suited to the problem of vertical fragmentation and especially gives a best solution. To validate our approach we compared our solution to two existing algorithms based on two early studies (Genetic algorithm & Apriori algorithm).

PAPR Reduction in OFDM System Based on SLM Technique

Abstract:   The term OFDM is a special type of FDM which has very vast application in the field of wired and wireless communication systems. In this paper we are discussing about the main problem of OFDM i.e. Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) which affects the performance and efficiency of Power Amplifier. We also discuss various reduction techniques of PAPR for Selective Mapping (SLM) with Inverse Discrete Fourier Transform (IDFT) and Selective Mapping (SLM) with Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT). In this paper we are dealing with most promising reduction technique SLM with IFFT, its non-uniform phase factor for PAPR reduction in OFDM system. In addition, approximate expression for the complementary cumulative distribution function (CCDF) of the PAPR of the modified SLM technique is derived and compared with the simulation results.

Secure Audit Service by Using TPA for Data Integrity in Cloud System

Abstract:   Cloud computing is the vast computing utility, where users can remotely store their data into the cloud so to have the benefit of the on-demand availability of huge and different applications and services from a shared pool of configurable computing resources. Cloud-based outsourced storage space reduces the patron load of storage management. It also reduces the maintenance load of customer by providing a comparably low-cost, scalable, location-independent platform.  This new model of data hosting service commence a new security challenges, which requires an independent auditing service which audit the data integrity of cloud. There are different existing auditing services available in cloud which audit data integrity remotely in static motion but these are not applicable whenever data is dynamically updated in cloud. Since it require efficient and secure dynamic auditing method for data owner. However in cloud, the clients no have direct physical possession of data. It shows client faces different formidable risk like missing or corruption of data. To keep away from the security and integrity risk of data, audit services are essential to ensure the integrity and availability of outsourced data and to achieve digital forensics and credibility on cloud computing. Provable data possession (PDP), which is a cryptographic technique for verifying the integrity of data without retrieving it at an untrusted server, can be used to realize audit services. In this paper, profiting from the interactive proof system, we address the construction of an interactive PDP protocol to prevent the fraudulence of prove (soundness property) and the leakage of verified data (zero-knowledge property) [1] [17] [20].

In Silico Characterization of 14 – 3 – 3 Protein Identified In Peanut (Arachis Hypogaea L.) Under Drought Stress

Abstract:   Peanut, an important oil and food crop frequently encounter drought stress which limits its productivity. Of the many proteins synthesized in response to drought, 14-3-3 proteins are highly conserved regulatory proteins and involved in many biological processes. In the present investigation, peptides of 14-3-3 protein isolated and sequenced from ICGV 91114 peanut cultivar were employed. The physico-chemical and secondary structural properties indicated this protein as hydrophilic, soluble and stable. Since 3D structure of peanut 14-3-3 protein is not available in public domain to elucidate its regulatory role, the present investigation was initiated to build a homology model, using 2o98 protein of tobacco as a template and validated through Ramachandran plot. A hypothesis was built on the role of peanut 14-3-3 protein in regulating 3 other drought tolerant proteins in silico; Late Embryogenesis Abundant protein-1, Ascorbate peroxidase-1 and Calcium ion binding protein, by identifying protein binding sites, validating and molecular docking. The results indicated its maximum interaction with calcium binding protein indicating its probable role in signaling other proteins in silico during drought stress.

Impact Analysis of PMD and GVD on the Performance of Optical Fiber Communication Employing OFDM - QAM Technique

Abstract:   In this paper the performance of optical fiber communication system is analytically investigated on account of fiber chromatic and polarization mode dispersion employing OFDM-QAM. The influence of the dispersions on the signal spectrum is determined as a function of fiber length, Bit rate and dispersion parameters for intensity modulation/ direct-direct (IM/DD) receiver. It is found that the bit error rate (BER) performance of the system is highly dependent on fiber length, bit rate and dispersion parameters. The power penalty suffered by the system is evaluated at BER=10-09 for single mode fiber operating at 1.55 µm wavelength. It is found that the proposed system performance mainly degrades due to dispersion when the system operates at higher bit rates.

Structural and Electrical Properties of Cobalt Ferrite Nanoparticles 

Abstract:   Cobalt ferrite nano-powders were obtained by sol-gel auto-combustion method using citric acid as a fuel. The metal nitrate to citric acid ratio was taken as 1:3. The as prepared powder of cobalt ferrite nanoparticles is annealed at 5500C for 4 hrs and the same powder was used for characterization and investigations of structural and electrical properties.The structural characterization of cobalt ferrite nanoparticles were done by X-ray diffraction technique. Micro-structural and morphological studies were carried out by scanning electron microscope technique and energy dispersive spectrum. The average crystallite size obtained by Scherrer’s formula is of the order of 34 nm. The grain size and specific surface area of the cobalt ferrite nanoparticles is 34 nm and 55 respectively. The lattice constant determined from XRD data is in the reported range (8.3783 A.U.). The porosity estimated from X- ray density and bulk density shows large value of the order of 47 %. The D.C electrical resistivity was investigated from room temperature to 850 K using two probe technique. The variation of dc electrical resistivity with temperature is explained in this work.

Paper Title:

To Study on the Risk Management, Risk Treatment Strategies and Insurance in Construction Industries

Abstract:   This study is concerned with the assessment of risk for major construction activities. Risk has been defined as a measure of the probability, the severity, and the exposure of all hazards of an activity. Risk management is at the core of any business or organization, and construction industry and construction companies are no exception to this. This is central to any business regardless of size, activity, or sector. Construction industries can lose substantial sums of money as a result of failure to identify and evaluate risk in time. Industries may even forego their opportunity to take advantage of potentially beneficial opportunities arising in the course of their activities if risks are not recognized in good time. Risk management is, therefore, as much about looking ahead to identify further opportunities as it is about avoiding or mitigating losses.

A New topology of Single-Phase Seven-Level Inverter with Less Number of Power Elements for Grid Connection

Abstract:   Recently, the evolution of single phase multilevel inverters has been escalation due to its preference over traditional one. In this paper proposed a new topology of single phase seven level inverter with less number of power elements for grid connection. In this proposed inverter have eight switches and their switches operate with fundamental frequency. The proposed inverter produced seven level output voltage from two input voltage sources. The proposed inverter reduced the switching losses (because of all switches operate with fundamental frequency), complexity, control circuit and place requirement. The proposed inverter compared to a single-phase five level pulse width modulation (PWM) inverter for grid connection.  The proposed inverter compared to conventional inverter has PWM technique have two triangular carrier signals identical to each other with an offset equivalent to the amplitude of the reference signal were used to generate PWM signals for the switches. The proposed inverter compared to conventional inverter has some switches operate at fundamental frequency and other operates at switching frequency.

Paper Title:

Networked Distributed Optimization for Demand Response in Residential Load Control

Abstract:   Demand response (DR) will be one of the most important components in future smart grids. DR in a smart grid can reduce peak load and adapt flexible demand to generation fluctuations. Although DR reduces the energy bills for consumers of loads, the utility will also be reduced because of the load reduction. Centralized and distributed control algorithms have been proposed to minimize the utility loss for the consumers, while achieving the load management target. We propose a multi-level distributed load optimization system that serves this purpose. The optimization problem is formulated and solved using primal-dual decomposition. When the number of consumers in the system is very large, an event-triggered method is used to guarantee system performance by reducing the communication frequency.

Speech Analysis of Throat Infected People Using DSO

Abstract:   There are various ways of communication. Two people may communicate with each other through speech, gestures or graphical symbols. Man’s most natural way of communication is through speech. Though writing seems to be important means of communication and written words, appear to be more efficient means of transmitting intelligence, the amount of intelligence exchanged by speech is beyond comparison. Considering the importance of speech ,the speech analysis is carried out .Speech analysis is used in innovative way to find out parameters like Amplitude, frequency, energy and power, when throat gets infected because of viral infections  or due to any other cause. Speech quality changes which changes the parameters. An experiment is carried out with the instrument DSO (Digital signal oscilloscope).  Speech   analysis of normal and infected throat that is performed without any treatment.

Formal Description of Components In Operating Systems

Abstract:  The contemporary development of hardware components is a prerequisite for increasing the concentration of computing power. System software is developing at a much slower pace. To use available resources efficiently modeling is required. Formalization of elements, present in the material, provides the basis for modeling. Examples are presented to demonstrate the efficiency of the concept.

A Heuristic Algorithm for Resource Constrained Project Scheduling Problem with Discounted Cash Flows

Abstract:   Project management is a complex decision making process involving the unrelenting pressures of time and cost. A project management problem typically consists of planning and scheduling decisions. The planning decision is essentially a strategic process wherein planning for requirements of several resource types in every time period of the planning horizon is carried out. Scheduling involves the allocation of the given resources to projects to determine the start and completion times of the detailed activities. Extensive research works have been carried out in Resource constrained project scheduling problems (RCPSP) and its variants. This paper mainly focuses on a resource constrained project scheduling problem with discounted cash flows (RCPSPDCF) as its variant. The study aims at providing fast heuristic solution for RCPSPDCF by utilizing the features of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO).

UNDERWARE - A Layer for Homogeneous Access to Heterogeneous Multi - Core Processors

Abstract:   This paper proposes a new way to tackle the problem of using the existing resources of multi-core processors with different types of cores, like PowerPC, Intel, ARM, DSPs, FPGA areas, etc. Applications for these heterogeneous multi-cores are difficult to write, as most programmers and programming tools target one platform only and in many cases single-cores only. The way to accomplish this is by creating a new layer, which is located between the operating system and the underlying heterogeneous hardware. In analogy to the middleware between applications and the OS it is called “underware”. The underware layer itself consists of two sublayers: The lower “adapter layer” builds a uniform interface for any underlying processor-core-configuration; above it lies the “scheduling layer”, which automatically distributes applications to the corresponding core or cores (if parallel execution is possible) or even to several different idle cores if the application is available in different platform executables. Research on the approach described in this paper is yet in an early stage; the corresponding project “UNDERWARE” just started. Therefore no preliminary results can be given. However the concept is sound and it can therefore be expected to get a first prototype soon.

Modeling and Optimization of a Photovoltaic Generator with Matlab/Simulink

Abstract:   The output power of a photovoltaic generator is related to many climatic factors like temperature and solar illumination; it is then necessary to track the maximum power point in real time to optimize the photovoltaic system efficiency. This work presents the modeling of a photovoltaic system with a maximum power point tracking (MPPT). The operating of the photovoltaic system and the improvement of its efficiency taking into account rapid variations of meteorological conditions is presented with a MPPT based on perturb and observe (P&O) strategy, both implemented using Matlab. Simulation results showed that operating point oscillates around maximum power point and these oscillations are proportional to the variations of the incident illumination.

Discovery of Network Resources for Better Quality of Service

Abstract:   Knowledge of physical topology of an Internet Protocol (IP) network is very important to a number of critical network management tasks like reactive-proactive resource management, event correlation and root cause analysis. Thus automatically discovering the physical topology is necessary. The present work is mainly concentrated on discovering Physical Topology (ie, layer 2) as well as layer 3 topology in heterogeneous IP networks. This mainly relies on Simple Network Management Protocol Management Information Base (SNMPMIB) information that is widely supported by IP networks and requires no modifications to the operating system software running on elements or hosts.

Retinal Vessel Detection in Retinopathy of Prematurity Using Butterworth High-pass Filters and SVM

Abstract:   Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is an eye disease in premature infants. It mostly happens in babies weighing less than 0011 g and gestational age less than 10 weeks. The growth of retinal vessels are interrupted in premature infants and the retina has been unable to get enough oxygen and food. So, the delay in diagnosis may lead to blindness. Therefore it is necessary to follow the premature infants in regular checkups to assure that their vessel structure is growing normal. In this paper a high pass filter is used to track the retinal vessels and the energy criterion is computed for finding the percentage of area which is covered with blood vessels. The algorithm has been applied on 011 images including both mature and premature infants. The pictures are taken with a Retcam and labeled by an ophthalmologist. The result of this study was compared with ophthalmologist’s hand labels of diagnosis and it can detect the prematurity with a high specificity of 0111, sensitivity of %29.61 and accuracy of %59101.

Modeling & Analysis of performance characteristics of Wire EDM of SS304

Abstract:   Wire electrical discharge machining (WEDM) allowed success in the production of newer materials, especially for the aerospace and medical industries. Using WEDM technology, complicated cuts can be made through difficult-to-machine electrically conductive components. The high degree of the obtainable accuracy and the fine surface quality make WEDM valuable. WEDM is so complex in nature that the selection of appropriate input parameters is not possible by the trial-and-error method. The selection of machining parameters in any machining process significantly affects production rate, product quality and production cost of a finished component. WEDM process involves a large number of variables that affect its performance. However, based on the literature survey and the pilot experiments, five process variables, viz., pulse-on time, pulse-off time, wire tension, and water pressure are taken into consideration for the research. In the present work Response Surface Methodology (RSM) is used to develop the quantitative relationships between the input and the output responses for the experimental data collected as per the DOE. Also the effects of the input process parameters over the MRR and Ra were plotted and studied. Later the developed models can be utilized for optimization.
