    Disseminating Shared Information in Disaster Relief Efforts: A Communication Computable Model

    VHF radio systems commonly used to support search and rescue activities after disasters limit the flow of information among response teams deployed in the field. It generates islands of information that jeopardizes the coordination and effectiveness of the response activities. This paper proposes a communication model that uses opportunistic networks...

    Group Mutual Exclusion Based on Priorities

    The authors propose a distributed solution for the group mutual exclusion problem based on priorities, in a network with no share memory whose members only communicate by messages. The proposed algorithm is composed by two players: groups and processes, groups are passive players while processes are active players. For the...

    A Quantitative Framework for the Evaluation of Agile Methodologies

    The methodologies for agile software development are fundamentally based on the collaboration with software users during the entire development process, the simplicity to adapt the product to changes in requirements, and on the incremental product delivery. Based on the Agile Manifesto, they have been accepted and are successfully used in...

    A Defeasible Logic Programming Approach to the Integration of Rules and Ontologies

    The Semantic Web is a vision of the current Web where resources have exact meaning assigned in terms of ontologies, thus enabling agents to reason about them. As inconsistencies cannot be treated by standard reasoning approaches, the authors use Defeasible Logic Programming (DeLP) to reason with possibly inconsistent ontologies. In...

    Aerial Image Acquisition and Processing for Remote Sensing

    UAV (Unmanned Airborne Vehicle) high resolution digital image acquisition systems based on small format cameras provide a versatile alternative to the solution of environmental monitoring and remote sensing problems. Through digital image processing these small format optical and multi-spectral camera images can obtain ortho-mosaics that meet quality standards at a...

    Semantics-based Color Assignment in Visualization

    The active use and manipulation of visual representations makes many complex and intensive cognitive tasks feasible. A visual representation is able to convey relationships among many elements in parallel and it provides an individual with directly observable memory. A successful visualization allows the user to gain insight into the data,...

    Reduced Computational Cost in the Calculation of Worst Case Response Time for Real Time Systems

    Modern Real Time Operating Systems require reducing computational costs even though the microprocessors become more powerful each day. It is usual that Real Time Operating Systems for embedded systems have advance features to administrate the resources of the applications that they support. In order to guarantee either the schedulability of...

    Economic Growth In A Two-Agent Economy

    This paper presents a two-agent economy, in which each agent has a consumption-dependent time preference. The optimal dynamic paths of accumulation will tend to one of many possible steady states, depending on the location of the initial capital level. One of the main results of this model arises in comparison...
