    Directional Antenna based SBSAA-MAC Protocol for MANETS Review and Performance Evaluation

    Wireless Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs/SANETs) are formed with mobile/static wireless nodes and have different set of problems as compared to their wired counterparts. IEEE 802.11 Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol was initially designed for infrastructure based networks and is therefore not able to address the issues linked with wireless ad-hoc networks...

    The Trade-offs Of Social Assistance Programs In The Labor Market: The Case Of The "Seguro Popular" Program In Mexico

    In 2002, the Mexican government began a tremendous financial effort to provide health insurance, Seguro Popular (SP), to the 50 million uninsured in Mexico. In doing so, the states and municipalities offered virtually free health insurance to uncovered self-employed and informal salaried workers substantially altering the incentives for workers and...

    Wireless Smart Sensors Networks, Systems, Trends and Its Impact in Environmental Monitoring

    Wireless Smart Sensor Networks (WSSNs) offers a new paradigm regards to the way that the traditional monitoring systems have been designed, all this happens due to the impact-generating by technology in society. The deployment of Information and Communication Technologies or ICT allow one rely with small devices that are able...

    A Goal-Oriented Framework for Data Warehousing Quality Measurement

    Requirements engineering is known to be a key factor for the success of software projects. Inside this discipline, goal-oriented requirements engineering approaches have shown specially suitable to deal with projects where it is necessary to capture the alignment between system requirements and stakeholders' needs, as is the case of data-warehousing...

    Decoding of MDP Convolutional Codes Over the Erasure Channel

    When transmitting over an erasure channel like the Internet, one of the problems encountered is the delay experienced on the received information which is due to the possible retransmission of lost packets. One way to eliminate these delays is by using forward error correction. Until now only block codes have...

    Integrating the Development of Data Mining and Data Warehouses Via Model-Driven Engineering

    Data mining is one of the most important analysis techniques to automatically extract knowledge from large amount of data. Nowadays, data mining is based on low-level specifications of the employed techniques typically bounded to a specific analysis platform. Therefore, data mining lacks a modelling architecture that allows analysts to consider...

    Towards a Model-Driven Engineering Approach of Data Mining

    Nowadays, data mining is based on low-level specifications of the employed techniques typically bounded to a specific analysis platform. Therefore, data mining lacks a modelling architecture that allows analysts to consider it as a truly software-engineering process. Here, the paper proposes a model-driven approach based on a conceptual modelling framework...
