Country : India
Authors : Vishwanath Gouda R Malipatil || Dr G.M.Patil || Renuka R Malipatil

Abstract: The impulse noise suppression is a challenging task in digital image processing. In this paper, the median filtering is applied to low, medium and high detail images that are corrupted by low to high density impulse noise. The performance of a median filter is evaluated based on edge preserving capabilities, subjective and objective analysis. The simulation results indicate that the median filter preserves edges in all the categories of images.

Keywords: Image Processing, Impulse Noise, Salt & Pepper Noise, Mean and Median Filtering.

Authors : Eman T. Jasim || Hameed A. Younis

Abstract: Remote user authentication, in which the resources are distributed among the recipients and they are shared across the network in the form of network services provided by the remote systems. Before supply such services, the remote system should have the skill to authenticate the users. Otherwise, a discount could impersonate a legitimate user login to get access to the system. Currently, an efficient remote authentication in which using smart card have been widely adopted due to their low computational cost and convenient portability for the authentication purpose. In smart card this field, there are many studies have relied upon them, including a study by Khan et al. who claimed that he exceeded the weaknesses of Wang et al.'s scheme. But unfortunately Khan et al.'s scheme is still suffer from several the identified weaknesses which is include preserve anonymity of a user, efficiency for wrong password login, forward secrecy and efficiency session key agreement. So our propose which it includes the construction of authentication system depending on 2FA , which is authentication scheme based on smart card, where it is surpassed the identified weaknesses of Khan et al.'s scheme which including preserve anonymity of a user, efficiency for wrong password login, forward secrecy and efficiency session key agreement.

Keywords: 2FA , Authentication, Remote user authentication, Smart card, Password.

Title : Implementation of Intelligent Web Server Monitoring
Country : India
Authors : Rakhi Arya

Abstract: Web sites are one of the most important tools for advertisements in international area for universities and other foundation. The quality of a website can be evaluated by analyzing user accesses of the website. To know the quality of a web site user accesses are to be evaluated by web usage mining. The results of mining can be used to improve the website design and increase satisfaction which helps in various applications. Log files are the best source to know user behavior. But the raw log files contains unnecessary details like image access, failed entries etc., which will affect the accuracy of pattern discovery and analysis. So preprocessing stage is an important work in mining to make efficient pattern analysis. To get accurate mining results user's session details are to be known.In our proposed work, user's browsing behavior on a web page is considered with different modes of actions on client side to calculate web page browsing time with more precision and accuracy. It helps us to maintain the accuracy in finding frequent web usage patterns and administrators to evaluate its website usage more effectively. In our proposed work we considered t, t1, t2 three time limits which are subjective to the website management. These values should be selected effectively because if we select small value it will increase load on client side and if we select large value it will not provide good results.

Country : India
Authors : Vrushali Adhav || Darshana Ahire || Aarti Jadhav || Dipali Lokhande

Abstract: A new method for translating software requirements to object-oriented model is proposed. Software requirements specified in a natural language using scenario like format will be transformed into class diagrams of Unified Modeling Language using specification transformation rule. The transformation rule is based on a grammatical analysis, more specifically syntactical analysis, of requirements specification. This paper proposes a new method for translating software requirements specified using natural language to formal specification (in this context is executable and translatable Unified Modeling Language Class Diagram). Requirements specification written in a scenario like format will be transformed into class diagram's components the automation of class generation from natural language requirements is highly challenging. This paper proposes a method and a tool to facilitate requirements analysis process and class diagram extraction from textual requirements supporting natural language processing techniques. Requirements engineers analyze requirements manually to come out with analysis artifacts such as class diagram.

Title : A Review on Evolution and Versioning of Ontology Based Information Systems
Country : India
Authors : Aastha Mahajan || Parminder Kaur

Abstract: This paper presents the survey of evolution and versioning of ontology based information systems (ISs). With change being the inherent property of each system, it becomes indispensable to keep the information base of the ontology state-of-the-art. Ontology versioning and evolution is an important area of research as ontology progress is a collaborative and ubiquitous process. Therefore, question of maintaining ontologies gained more magnitude. As a result , multiple scenarios for ontology maintenance and evolution are emerging. This paper presents the work previously taken on ontology evolution and versioning. This study reveals the current approaches for handling ontology in an unfailing manner and tools developed for its evolution and versioning. The main incentive behind this work is to summarize the previous approaches in this field of research, challenges faced and to motivate this research further.
Keywords: change management, evolution, ontology, semantics, tools, versioning.

Title : Web Server for Remote Monitoring and Control
Country : Iraq
Authors : Bassam Talib Sabri

Abstract: This paper presents an implementation of a platform independent embedded web server and its integration into a network of wireless sensor nodes. The embedded web server is designed and built as an expansion module for one of the nodes in the wireless sensor network (WSN). It allows authorized Internet users to establish two-way communication with the sensor network. The server uses limited available hardware resources to implement an interface to the WSN node and to serve dynamic HTML pages to the remote user. This allows the user to monitor the operation of the WSN remotely, to periodically download the sensed data, and to change the operation mode of the network. In addition to providing monitoring and data collection services, the embedded web server can generate email alerts about critical issues in the WSN, provide secure access to modules that change the operation of the WSN, shut down sensor nodes, and log data from the network into an on-board flash memory.

Title : Particle Swarm Optimization based K-Prototype Clustering Algorithm
Country : India
Authors : K. Arun Prabha || N. Karthi Keyani Visalakshi

Abstract: Clustering in data mining is a discovery process that groups a set of data so as to maximize the intra-cluster similarity and to minimize the inter-cluster similarity. The K-Means algorithm is best suited for clustering large numeric data sets when at possess only numeric values. The K-Modes extends to the K-Means when the domain is categorical. But in some applications, data objects are described by both numeric and categorical features. The K-Prototype algorithm is one of the most important algorithms for clustering this type of data. This algorithm produces locally optimal solution that dependent on the initial prototypes and order of object in the data. Particle Swarm Optimization is one of the simple optimization techniques, which can be effectively implemented to enhance the clustering results. But discrete or binary Particle Swarm Optimization mechanisms are useful for handle mixed data set. This leads to a better cost evaluation in the description space and subsequently enhanced processing of mixed data by the Particle Swarm Optimization. This paper proposes a new variant of binary Particle Swarm Optimization and K-Prototype algorithms to reach global optimal solution for clustering optimization problem. The proposed algorithm is implemented and evaluated on standard benchmark dataset taken from UCI machine learning repository. The comparative analysis proved that Particle Swarm based on K-Prototype algorithm provides better performance than the traditional K-modes and K-Prototype algorithms.

Country : India
Authors : Akhil S. Killawala || Kaustubh R. Kulkarni || Nishant D. Gohel

Abstract: In this project, we focus on cloud data storage security, which has always been an important aspect of quality of service. To ensure the correctness of users' data in the cloud, we propose an effective and flexible scheme combining cryptography and steganography. Encryption module encrypts the files before they are uploaded and decryption module decrypts them when they are downloaded. The text steganography inserts a watermark within an html file to uniquely identify it's owner. The image steganography embeds the watermark within an image file.
