    Data Signature-Based Time Series Traffic Analysis on Coarse-Grained NLEX Density Data Sets

    In this paper, the authors characterized traffic density modeled from coarse data by using data signatures to effectively and efficiently represent traffic flow behavior. Using the 2006 North Luzon EXpressway North Bound (NLEX NB) BaLintawaK (Blk), Bocaue (Boc), Meycauayan (Mcy), and Marilao (Mrl) segments' hourly traffic volume and time mean...

    Optimal Cache Partitioning in Reliable Data Transport for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Traditional reliable transport protocols have been designed to perform end-to-end delivery transparently to the intermediate nodes along the path (e.g., TCP). The resource-constrained nature of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) requires a new paradigm where intermediate nodes are able to cache packets and retransmit them on-demand during packet loss recovery...

    Leadership And Innovation Under Decentralization: A Case Study Of Selected Local Governments In The Philippines

    This paper investigates the importance of leadership as a driver of local government innovations. Based on a survey of 209 innovations introduced in selected 48 local governments in the Philippines during the period June 2004-June 2008, the observable qualities and possible incentives of incumbent mayors are linked empirically with their...

    ICS-OS: A Kernel Programming Approach to Teaching Operating System Concepts

    Traditional approaches to teaching operating systems require students to develop simulations and user space applications. An alternative is to let them modify parts of an actual operating system and see their programs run at kernel space. However, this is difficult to achieve using modern real-world operating systems partly because of...

    Asia~s Underachiever: Deep Constraints In Philippine Economic Growth

    Numerous studies have tried to explain the poor growth performance of the Philippines. This paper critically reviews related literature on constraints to long-run growth, as it applies to the Philippines. The authors evaluate several factors, namely: culture; corruption; and institutions. The last offers the most convincing explanation for mediocre growth....
