    Client-Centered, Energy-Efficient Wireless Communication on IEEE 802.11b Networks

    In mobile devices, the Wireless Network Interface Card (WNIC) consumes a significant portion of overall system energy. One way to reduce energy consumed by a device is to transition its WNIC to a lower-power sleep mode when data is not being received or transmitted. This paper investigates client-centered techniques for...

    A Study of URL Redirection Indicating Spam

    The use of URL redirections has been recently studied to filter spam as email and web spammers use redirection to camouflage their web pages. However, many web sites also employ redirection for legitimate reasons such as logging, localization, and load-balancing. While a majority of the studies on URL redirection focused...

    Health Insurance Coverage And The Role Of Income Uncertainty

    This paper uses the National Longitudinal Survey data set to examine the role of income uncertainty in explaining the likelihood of health insurance coverage among individuals. After controlling for a number of socioeconomic, demographic, and behavioral factors, the results suggest that individuals who face greater income uncertainty are less likely...

    Selective Querying for Adapting Hierarchical Web Service Compositions Using Aggregate Volatility

    Environments in which Web Service Compositions (WSC) operate are often dynamic. This paper addresses the problem of which service to query for up-to-date information in order to adapt a hierarchical WSC, given that queries are not free. Previously, the Value Of Changed information (VOC) has been proposed to select those...

    Towards Automated RESTful Web Service Composition

    Emerging as the popular choice for leading Internet companies to expose internal data and resources, RESTful Web services are attracting increasing attention in the industry. While automating WSDL/SOAP based Web service composition has been extensively studied in the research community, automated RESTful Web service composition in the context of Service-Oriented...

    Integrating Behavioral Trust in Web Service Compositions

    Algorithms for composing Web Services (WS) traditionally utilize the functional and quality-of-service parameters of candidate services to decide which services to include in the composition. Users often have differing experiences with a WS. While trust in a WS is multi-faceted and consists of security and behavioral aspects, the focus in...

    Throttling Outgoing SPAM for Webmail Services

    Spam has become a serious problem of Internet, and the current defense is limited to the filters deployed at the recipient side. Little known research has been applied to reduce the volume of spam messages being generated. This paper presents a system that dynamically throttles emails based on the message...

    Banknotes And Economic Growth

    Modern paper currency contributes little to productive investment. This shortcoming is not inherent to paper money. It stems from the fact that currency today is monopolistically supplied by public monetary authorities that are poor intermediaries. Commercial bank-notes, in contrast, support efficient intermediation. The holding of private banknotes promotes economic growth...

    Composing E-Workflows Using Syntactic, Operational And Semantic Information

    With the development and maturity of infrastructures that support e-services, the authors expect organizations to incorporate Web services as part of their business processes. While in some cases Web services may be utilized in an isolated form, it is natural to expect that Web services will be integrated as part...

    Path Normalcy Analysis Using Nearest Neighbor Outlier Detection

    The authors present a machine learning technique that recognizes patterns of normal movement, using GPS data and time stamps, to gain the ability to detect regions of time containing abnormal movement. They argue people move throughout regions of time in established patterns, and a person's normal movement can be learned...

    Genetic Algorithm, Extremal Optimization, and Particle Swarm Optimization Applied to the Discrete Network Configuration Problem

    Genetic Algorithm, Extremal Optimization, and Particle Swarm Optimization are applied to the discrete (integer-based) communications network configuration problem. In this paper, each heuristic search scheme is used to determine the optimal (or near optimal) set of communications equipment components needed to satisfy user-specified radio subscriber and wire subscriber requirements. The...

    Haley: An End-to-End, Scalable Web Service Composition Tool

    A major benefit of Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) is the potential to automatically compose Web services into business processes thereby promoting flexibility and reusability. The Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (WSBPEL) provides a standard way to represent the Web service compositions. However, manually designing BPEL processes is cumbersome...
