This paper presents a flexible multi-criteria group decision making method based on ideal points concept, which can be used to deal with heterogeneous information(numerical, interval valued and linguistic variable with different granularity and/or semantic)and reflect the Decision Makers’ different...

4. Enhancing False Alarm Reduction Using Voted Ensemble Selection in Intrusion Detection

Yuxin Meng, Lam-For Kwok
Pages: 626 - 638
Network intrusion detection systems (NIDSs) have become an indispensable component for the current network security infrastructure. However, a large number of alarms especially false alarms are a big problem for these systems which greatly lowers the effectiveness of NIDSs and causes heavier analysis...

5. Cryptographic Secrecy Analysis of Matrix Embedding

Jiayong Chen, Jiufen Liu, Weiming Zhang, Huisheng Liu, Xianfeng Zhao
Pages: 639 - 647
For good security and large payload in information hiding, matrix embedding is a popular method for increasing the embedding efficiency. This paper analyzes the security of matrix embedding against cryptanalytic attacks. The secrecy security of matrix embedding using information theory under the conditions...

6. Transitive Closure of Interval-valued Fuzzy Relations

Ramón González-del-Campo, Luis Garmendia, Jordi Recasens
Pages: 648 - 657
In this paper are introduced some concepts of interval-valued fuzzy relations and some of their properties: reflexivity, symmetry, T-transitivity, composition and local reflexivity. The existence and uniqueness of T-transitive closure of interval-valued fuzzy relations is proved. An algorithm to compute...

It provides analyses of the requirements as well the analyses of the system incidents caused by specification, design and the implementation of the project. Main focus of this scientific paper...

8. Robust binary neural networks based 3D Face detection and accurate face registration

Quan Ju
Pages: 669 - 683
In this paper, we propose a facial feature localization algorithm based on a binary neural network technique - k-Nearest Neighbour Advanced Uncertain Reasoning Architecture (kNN AURA) to encode, train and match the feature patterns to accurate identify the nose tip in 3D. Based on the results of the...

9. A Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm for Scheduling Against Restrictive Common Due Dates

AndreasC. Nearchou, SotirisL. Omirou
Pages: 684 - 699
Focusing on the just-in-time (JIT) operations management, earliness as well as, tardiness of jobs’ production and delivery should be discouraged. In accordance to this philosophy, scheduling problems involving earliness and tardiness penalties are very critical for the operations manager. In this...


Seungwok Han, Hee Yong Youn
Pages: 700 - 711
Effective manipulation of context is very important in providing the context-aware services. In recent years, a variety of context models have been proposed to properly handle the key aspects of the context, while focusing on scenario-based acquisition, management, and representation of context. However,...
