    Privacy-Preserving Targeted Advertising Scheme for IPTV Using the Cloud

    In this paper, the authors present a privacy-preserving scheme for targeted advertising via the Internet Protocol TV (IPTV). The scheme uses a communication model involving a collection of viewers/subscribers, a content provider (IPTV), an advertiser, and a cloud server. To provide high quality directed advertising service, the advertiser can utilize...

    Fairness Aware Resource Allocation for Downlink MISO-OFDMA Systems

    In this paper, a resource allocation problem for downlink Multiple Input-Single Output Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (MISO-OFDMA) systems is investigated. The problem is defined as maximizing the minimum user rate with the constraints of total power and Bit Error Rate (BER). Since it is difficult to obtain the optimal...

    A Survey of Agent Technologies for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) do not have a fixed infrastructure and consist of sensor nodes that perform sensing and communicating tasks. The WSNs have large application spectrum such as habitat monitoring, military surveillance, and target tracking, where sensor nodes may operate distributed in highly dynamic environments. Battery-constrained sensor nodes may...

    A Distributed Wakening Based Target Tracking Protocol For Wireless Sensor Networks

    The authors propose a two layer protocol for tracking fast targets in sensor networks. At the lower layer, the Distributed Spanning Tree Algorithm (DSTA) partitions the network into clusters with controllable diameter and constructs a spanning tree backbone of clusterheads rooted at the sink. At the upper layer, they propose...

    Graph Matching Based Distributed Clustering and Backbone Formation Algorithms for Sensor Networks

    Clustering is a widely used technique to manage the essential operations such as routing and data aggregation in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The authors propose two new graph theoretic distributed clustering algorithms for WSNs that use weighted matching method for selecting strong links. To the best of the knowledge, the...

    Endogenous Determination Of FDI Growth And Economic Growth: The OECD Case

    This paper tests the endogenous relationship between FDI growth and economic growth using a panel dataset for 23 OECD countries for the period 1975-2004. In particular the authors estimate a two-equation simultaneous equation system with the Generalized Methods of Moments (GMM) that treats economic growth and FDI growth as endogenous...

    Location Aware Self-Adapting Firewall Policies

    Private access to corporate servers from Internet can be achieved using various security mechanisms. This paper presents a network access control mechanism that employs a policy management architecture empowered with dynamic firewalls. With the existence of such an architecture system and/or network administrators do not need to reconfigure firewalls when...
