    A Case Study in Knowledge Management Education - Historical Challenges and Future Opportunities

    In 2001 Kent State University established a graduate level program that granted a Master of Science degree in information architecture and knowledge management. The knowledge management concentration was a cornerstone of that degree program. The knowledge management concentration has sustained and thrived over the past ten years, though the path...

    Limiting the Neighborhood: De-Small-World Network for Outbreak Prevention

    In this paper, the authors study a basic and practically important strategy to help prevent and/or delay an outbreak in the context of network: limiting the contact between individuals. In this paper, they introduce the average neighborhood size as a new measure for the degree of being small-world and utilize...

    Brief Examination of Distributed Scheduling Support for Autonomous Systems

    Messiahs is a set of mechanisms supporting task placement in heterogeneous, distributed, autonomous systems. Messiahs provides a substrate on which scheduling algorithms can be implemented. The chief design goals for messiahs include support for autonomy, flexibility, scalability and efficiency. These mechanisms were designed to support diverse task placement and load...

    Trend Motif: A Graph Mining Approach for Analysis of Dynamic Complex Networks

    Complex networks have been used successfully in scientific disciplines ranging from sociology to microbiology to describe systems of interacting units. Until recently, studies of complex networks have mainly focused on their network topology. However, in many real world applications, the edges and vertices have associated attributes that are frequently represented...

    Experiences Instrumenting a Distributed Molecular Dynamics Program

    As cluster computing becomes increasingly more accessible, the need for tools to simplify the development and use of parallel simulations grows proportionally. One class of tools, steering and visualization middle-ware, promises to assist in code development as well as increase the value of the final simulation produced. In this paper...

    Correlation In Credit Risk

    The authors examine the correlation in credit risk using Credit Default Swap (CDS) data. The authors find that the observable risk factors at the firm, industry, and market levels and the macroeconomic variables cannot fully explain the correlation in CDS spread changes, leaving at least 30 percent of the correlation...

    A Survey of QoS Techniques in 802.11

    The most important functions of the MAC layer for a wireless network include controlling channel access, maintaining Quality of Service (QoS), and providing security. Wireless links have characteristics that differ from those of fixed links, such as high packet loss rate, bursts of packet loss, packet re-ordering, and large packet...

    Secure Location Verification Using Radio Broadcast

    Secure location verification is a recently stated problem that has a number of practical applications. The problem requires a wireless sensor network to confirm that a potentially malicious prover is located in a designated area. The original solution to the problem, as well as solutions to related problems, exploits the...

    Multiple Information Sources Cooperative Learning

    Many applications are facing the problem of learning from an objective dataset, whereas information from other auxiliary sources may be beneficial but cannot be integrated into the objective dataset for learning. In this paper, the authors propose an omni-view learning approach to enable learning from multiple data collections. The theme...

    Myopic Extrapolation, Price Momentum, And Price Reversal

    The momentum profits are realized through price adjustments reflecting shocks to firm fundamentals after portfolio formation. In particular, there is a consistent cross-sectional trend, from short-term momentum to long-term reversal, that happens to earnings shocks, to revisions to expected future cash flows at all horizons, and to prices. The evidence...

    Wavelength Assignment in Optical Network Design

    The authors consider flexible greedy approach to wavelength assignment in an optical network with the goal of minimizing the cost incurred by wavelength conversions and fiber deployment. The greedy approach processes demands one by one in a certain order and makes a locally optimal choice for each demand. The authors...

    TQL: A Query Language to Support Traceability

    A query language for traceability is proposed and presented. The language, TQL, is based in XML and supports queries across multiple artifacts and multiple traceability link types. A number of primitives are defined to allow complex queries to be constructed and executed. Example queries are presented in the context of...

    A Nonparametric Approach To Predicting International Financial Crises

    Currency crises seem to come in clusters two or three times a decade (1971, 1973, 1983, 1986, 1992, 1994, and 1997). The "Usual" course for a run on a country's currency occurs when the country tries to maintain a set exchange rate for its currency, usually by intervening in currency...

    Overlapping Matrix Pattern Visualization: A Hypergraph Approach

    In this paper, the authors study a visual data mining problem: Given a set of discovered overlapping submatrices of interest, how can people order the rows and columns of the data matrix to best display these submatrices and their relationships? The authors find this problem can be converted to the...
