1. Towards a Monitoring Framework for the Automatic Integration of the Access Control Policies for Web Services

Mohammed Alodib
Pages: 137 - 149
Cloud computing is an emerging model of business computing that can be used to maintain configurable resources such as processors, networks, storage, operating systems, databases, and servers. Service oriented Architecture (SoA) is one of most successful paradigms deployed over the Cloud; is a layered...

2. Jade: Reducing Energy Consumption of Android App

Hao Qian, Daniel Andresen
Pages: 150 - 158
The need for increased performance of mobile device directly conflicts with the desire for longer battery life. Offloading computation to multiple devices is an effective method to reduce energy consumption and enhance performance for mobile applications. Android provides mechanisms for creating mobile...

Masaya Yoshikawa, Kyota Sugioka, Yusuke Nozaki, Kensaku Asahi
Pages: 159 - 166
Recently, driving support technologies have been practically used. However, a problem has been pointed out that when a vehicle is connected with an external network, the safety of the vehicle is threatened. Ensuring the security of in-vehicle systems becomes an important priority. The present study proposes...

4. Effective Management of ReRAM-based Hybrid SSD for Multiple Node HDFS

Nayoung Park, Byungjun Lee, Kyung Tae Kim, Hee Yong Youn
Pages: 167 - 176
Recently, the research of Hybrid ReRAM/MLC NAND SSD is rapidly expanding into the storage areas. Most existing researches of Hybrid SSD are based on a single storage, while the management of multiple nodes like HDFS is still immature. In this paper a new efficient cold data eviction scheme is proposed...

5. Load Balancing of Peer-to-Peer MMORPG Systems with Hierarchical Area-of-Interest Management

Satoshi Fujita
Pages: 177 - 184
This paper studies the load balancing problem in distributed systems designed for massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs). More concretely, we consider a distributed system of master- worker type in which each worker is associated with a particular region in the game field, and propose...

6. Contour Completion of Partly Occluded Objects Based on Figural Goodness

Takahiro Hayashi, Tatsuya Ooi, Motoki Sasaki
Pages: 185 - 192
Object extraction has a crucial role in various visual semantic scenarios. In this paper, we propose a system for object extraction which can deal with an object partly occluded by other objects. In order to estimate the hidden part of the occluded object, the system combines different types of contour...

7. Development of an Effective Gaze Writing System with an Interface for Text Copy and Paste

Reo Kishi, Takahiro Hayashi
Pages: 193 - 201
While many interfaces for gaze writing (text entry by eye gaze) are available today, these interfaces are just a replacement of a keyboard. For more efficient gaze writing, this paper proposes a novel gaze writing system which has two kinds of gaze writing interfaces: (1) an interface for text entry...
