    Interactive Ant Colony Optimization (iACO) for Early Lifecycle Software Design

    Software design is crucial to successful software development, yet is a demanding multi-objective problem for software engineers. In an attempt to assist the software designer, interactive (i.e. human in-the-loop) meta-heuristic search techniques such as evolutionary computing have been applied and show promising results. Recent investigations have also shown that Ant...

    Database Semantic Interoperability Based on Information Flow Theory and Formal Concept Analysis

    As databases become widely used, there is a growing need to translate information between multiple databases. Semantic interoperability and integration has been a long standing challenge for the database community and has now become a prominent area of database research. In this paper, the authors aim to answer the question...

    Recent Developments In Monetary Policy

    In the fifteen years leading up to the financial crisis in 2008, there emerged a great deal of agreement on the optimal design of monetary policy. This policy 'Consensus' was accompanied also by a widely-shared view of how macroeconomies worked as the 'Keynesian' versus 'monetarist' debates slipped into the past....

    The Effects Of Privatisation And FDI On Economic Growth In Argentina

    This paper uses time-series model to estimate the effects of privatization and FDI on economic growth in Argentina over the period 1971-2000. Unit root tests and Co-integration tests are used to ensure that all variables used are stationary and that there exists a long run relationship among the variables. An...

    Managing Cultural Difference And Struggle In The Context Of The Multinational Corporate Workplace: Solution Or Symptom?

    The aim of this paper is to show the critical relevance of post-structuralism political theory to cross-cultural management studies. By emphasizing the key role that questions of identity, difference, and struggle play in the multinational corporate context, one argue for a shift in to the understandings away from essentialist conceptions...

    Packet Scheduling for Multicast/Broadcast Services

    Next Generation Networks (NGN) aims at providing a richer set of multimedia experience to its subscribers. It is anticipated that these potential services will use multicast or broadcast as their preferred transmission mode. In Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) networks this support is provided by the introduction of Multimedia Broadcast/Multicast...

    Multicast Groups Based on Transcoding

    Broadcasting/multicasting is more advantageous than multiple unicast as it reduces the communication cost. And supporting terminals with differing media capabilities is expected to be important and to grow in importance. However, considering user terminal requirements during multicast communication is not straightforward and leads one to rethink the existing broadcast/multicast transmission...

    Design of NGN Mobile Multicast Group Service Enablers

    Telecommunications industry has constantly enriched user communication experience by adding services in a service orientated approach. These services are supported by end-to-end design and integration of functions within the infrastructure. Convergence of mobile and fixed telephone systems, computer network (Internet) and broadcast infrastructure has motivated the telecommunications industry to design...
