Title : DIP Using Image Encryption and XOR Operation Affine Transform
Country : India
Authors : Anurag Singh || Dr. Namrata Dhanda

Abstract: Digital image processing is the use of computer algorithms to perform image processing on digital images. It is a subfield of digital signal processing. Digital image processing has many advantages over analog image processing; it allows a much wider range of algorithms to be applied to the input data, and can avoid problems such as the build-up of noise and signal distortion during processing. Since images are defined over two dimensions digital image processing can be modeled in the form of Multidimensional Systems.

Title : An Integrated Approach to Design an EAF for the CCS of ICDS in India
Country : India
Authors : Sarvesh Kumar Swarnakar || Rajesh Tripathi

Abstract: E-government is getting a positive thrust in view of `Digital India Project` initiatives by the current government in India. At present, information and communication technology (ICT) has become an essential prerequisite in all government`s service delivery mechanisms and the idea of governance becomes 24x7 phenomenon. E-governance tools facilitate citizens an efficient, transparent, flexible and comprehensive service delivery platform. The success of any CCS (Citizen Centric System) is now largely dependent on the implementation of an integrated EAF or web based service delivery model specifically. New technologies influenced the innovations in governance at large scale. The ICDS (Integrated Child Development Services/Schemes) is a very diverse program implemented throughout the country with some specified goals regarding child/woman welfare. At present almost every state of India implements the different programs of ICDS.There are two important instigations of this research paper, first is to study and analyze all short comings of the current and previous works regarding e-governance initiatives taken in implementation of service delivery process in CCS of ICDS throughout the country and second is to explore and outline/design an effective integrated EAF or a web based service delivery model (WBSDM) for the CCS of ICDS in India.

Title : Optimized Fuzzy Routing for MANET
Country : India
Authors : Md. Rafeeq Asst. Prof

Abstract: An ad-hoc network is a collection of mobile hosts with wireless network interfaces that may form a temporary network without the aid of any established infrastructure of centralized administration. In such environment, the nodes operate both as hosts as well as routers. Due to mobility, the topology of the network may change randomly, rapidly and unexpectedly. The objective of the work is to present effective decision algorithm that improves network performance. In the proposed technique, we defuzzyfy the values of delay, packet success rate, bandwidth and find out the threshold for these parameters for current session. In the path selection each node checks for its suitability with respect to the threshold corresponding to the parameters. If a node satisfies the condition then only it is included in the path otherwise node is omitted from the path.

Title : Extraction of Data Using Comparable Entity Mining
Country : India
Authors : Pravin Biradar || Himanshu Sharma || Parag Kothari || Shrikant Koparkar || Ms Vidya Nikam

Abstract:An important approach to text mining involves the use of natural-language information extraction. Information extraction (IE) distils structured data or knowledge from unstructured text by identifying references to named entities as well as stated relationships between such entities. IE systems can be used to directly extricate abstract knowledge from a text corpus, or to extract concrete data from a set of documents which can then be further analyzed with traditional data-mining techniques to discover more general patterns. Here is the methods and implemented systems for both of these approaches and summarize results on mining real text corpora of biomedical abstracts, job announcements, and product descriptions. Challenges that arise when employing current information extraction technology to discover knowledge in text are considered. Additionally, latest IEP which is accumulated in database can be used for the offline working. The system fetches content of current web page, stores and updates data to database, so that user can browse data online as well as offline.

Title : Audio Steganography Using Discrete Wavelet Transformation (DWT) & Discrete Cosine Transformation (DCT)
Country : India
Authors : Sumeet Gupta || Dr. Namrata Dhanda

Abstract:Steganography is an art and a science of communicating in a way, which hides the existence of the communication. It is also called as "covered writing", because it uses a "cover" of a message for sending any important secret message. In the steganographic scenario, the secret data is first concealed within another object which is called "cover object", to form "stego-object" and then this new object can be transmitted or saved. Using different techniques, we can send secret data in the form of an image, a music file or even a video file by embedding it into the carrier, forming a stego-signal. At the receiver's end, the secret data can be recovered from the stego-signal using different algorithms. The main goal of Steganography is to communicate securely in a completely undetectable manner and to avoid drawing suspicion to the transmission of a hidden data. It is not only prevents others from knowing the hidden information, but it also prevents others from thinking that the information even exists. If a Steganography method causes someone to suspect there is secret information in a carrier medium, then the method has failed.

Title : An Intelligent Meta Search Engine for Efficient Web Document Retrieval
Country : India
Authors : Keerthana.I.P || Aby Abahai.T

Abstract: In daily use of internet, when searching information we face lots of difficulty due to the rapid growth of Information Resources. This is because of the fact that a single search engine cannot index the entire web of resources. A Meta Search Engine is a solution for this, which submits the query to many other search engines and returns summary of the results. Therefore, the search results receive are an aggregate result of multiple searches. This strategy gives our search a boarder scope than searching a single search engine, but the results are not always better. Because the Meta Search Engine must use its own algorithm to choose the best results from multiple search engines. In this paper we proposed a new Meta Search Engine to overcome these drawbacks. It uses a new page rank algorithm called modified ranking for ranking and optimizing the search results in an efficient way. It is a two phase ranking algorithm used for ordering the web pages based on their relevance and popularity. This Meta Search Engine is developed in such a way that it will produce more efficient results than traditional search engines.

Country : India
Authors : Sudipta Sahana || Goutami Dey || Madhurhita Ganguly || Priyankar Paul || Subhayan Paul

Abstract: There have been enormous number of attacks recorded during electronic transmission of information between the source and intended receiver and indeed this has called for a more robust and efficient method for secured data transfer and making it more credible. Cryptography and Steganography are the widely used techniques that manipulates and conceal the information in order to cipher and hide their existence. These two techniques share the common goals and services of shielding the confidentiality, integrity andprevent the access of information by unauthorized users. In this project, a data hiding system which is grounded on audio steganography and cryptography is proposed for authenticateddata transfer. Steganographic medium used in this project is the audio medium. The encryption and decryption methods of cryptography used in developing this system make the surety of the proposed system more efficient in securing the data from unauthorized access. The system thus proposed is therefore recommended for use by the Internet users for founding a more safe and secure system. In this project, an audio medium is used as the steganographic and an advanced algorithm is applied for encoding the private data into the audio file.The goal of this research is to combine both cryptography and steganography in order to develop a better and credible communication in this unsecured open network.

Title : A Review on Geometrical Analysis in Character Recognition
Country : India
Authors : Arya A || Anil Kumar A

Abstract: Character Recognition is a prominent area in the field of image processing. Most of the basic concepts in image processing have been introduced in connection with research carried out in character recognition. Character recognition is still an active field of research and till now it has not acquired sufficient recognition efficiency. Character recognition is used in areas like postal address identification, mail sorting, and bank cheque processing and person identification. In this paper, we have provided a review on existing methods for handwritten character recognition based on geometrical properties of the character. The efficiency of the character recognition is depends on the appropriate preprocessing and feature extraction method. Handwritten character recognition is a difficult task because the handwriting is varying from person to person.

Title : Biometric Fingerprint Combination to Improve Anonymity Protection
Country : India
Authors : Urmila M. Sawant || Kalyan K. Pattekar || Prof. S. D. Sapkal || Dr. R. R. Deshmukh

Abstract: Fingerprint techniques are widely used in authentication systems, therefore its privacy protection becomes an important issue. Securing a stored fingerprint template is very important because once fingerprints are compromised, it cannot be easily revoked. So, we review here a new system for preserving fingerprint confidentiality. In this system, the fingerprint privacy is maintained by combining two different fingerprints into a new identity. In the enrollment phase, two fingerprints are taken from two different fingers. We obtain the minutiae positions of one fingerprint, the orientation of another fingerprint, and the reference points from both fingerprints. Based on the obtained information, a combined minutiae template is generated and stored in a database. In the authentication phase, we use the fingerprints of the same fingers that are already used in enrollment phase. For matching the two query fingerprints against a combined minutiae template, a two-stage fingerprint matching process is used.

Title : Evaluating Total Cost of Ownership for University Enterprise Resource Planning: Case of Maseno University
Country : Kenya
Authors : Mr. Patrick Oduor Owoche || Prof. Wanyembi Gregory || Mr. Kilwake Humphrey Juma

Abstract: Higher learning institutions (HEI) are investing in IT to attain operational excellence. Organizations looking to reduce technology costs typically look for ways to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). TCO captures all direct and indirect costs related to deploying a particular system. Understanding life-cycle costs provides opportunity to save scarce resources, improve IT and increase productivity. The study sought to analyze the TCO of university ERP system. The TCO analysis was based on Gartner's TCO model, the Distributed Computing Chart of Account as the theoretical framework. Modified Gartner TCO model was used to determine the total cost of owning Maseno University ERP system. The aim of the study was to create awareness on life-cycle costs of ERP solutions. The results obtained indicate that operations and maintenance account for 51%, end-user usage 23% while technology acquisition costs accounted for 16 %, implementation costs with 7% and the least cost was taken by procurements costs with 3%. Case study was used in gathering both qualitative and quantitative data from Maseno University. Interviews, document analysis, and questionnaires were used to gather the research data. It is hoped that the results of this study will help HEIs improve management of their ERP systems.

Title : Continuous Testing of Service-Oriented Applications Using Service Virtualization
Country : India
Authors : Shrimann Upadhyay || Hrishikesh Mukherjee || Arup Abhinna Acharya

Abstract: Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) has changed the way business enterprises get aligned with technology with a very fast pace keeping the demand of re-alignment time very short. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) carries significant commitment to impart an effective version for bias, agile and componentized IT which can be modified quickly. SOA removes the gap between software and business. The service-oriented application can be expensive to test because services are hosted remotely, are potentially shared among many users, and may have cost associated with their invocation. As classical testing approach and tools are not able to fit well, we have evolved a new approach to confront the increased complexity of the software. SV (Service virtualization) is the recent idea in software industry that grasp throughout the SDLC, it grow vigorously due to its artistry to address numerous constraints faced while development and testing. Service virtualization removes system dependency deadlocks by virtualizing or capturing and configuring the objective of the system's dynamic behavior, performance and data which acts and replies in the same manner as live one. The main benefit of using service virtualization is that the cost and time for testing is dramatically reduced, and quality is improved.

Title : An efficient load balancing using Bee foraging technique with Random stealing
Country : India
Authors : Ms. Anna Baby || Dr. Joshua Samuel Raj

Abstract: Load balancing is an integrated aspect of cloud computing. Inorder to achieve optimal machine utilization, tasks from overloaded virtual machines have to be transferred to underloaded virtual machines. In this paper, the honey bee foraging mechanism for load balancing is improved by random stealing technique. For finding the state of a virtual machine, the deviation of virtual machine load is calculated and checked for confinement within a threshold condition set. With random stealing method, tasks are stolen from a random Virtual machine when a VM is idle. It thus saves the idle time of the processing elements in the Virtual machine. The performance evaluation is done by using cloudSim. Simulation results show that the modified honey bee foraging technique with random stealing reduces the makespan of algorithm execution together with balancing system load and reduces the idle time of Virtual machine. Keywords: Bee foraging, Load balancing, Random stealing, Task scheduling, Thresholds

Title : A survey on Script and Language identification for Handwritten document images
Country : India
Authors : Prasanthkumar P V || Midhun T P || Archana Kurian

Abstract: Offline Script and language identification serves as a forerunner for a multi lingual Optical Character Recognizer (OCR). OCR is a software used for digitizing the handwritten or printed document mages. Most of the OCRs are designed for dealing with a single script. So it can't convert a document which contain more than one scripts. A country having multi lingual culture like India, multi lingual OCR is an essential software requirement for automation of handwritten documents processing. Script Identification consists of three steps Pre-processing, Features extraction and Classification. Based on the features extracted from the document images the classifier discriminates the script of the documents. This survey is an overview of different script identification methods for handwritten document images. They are classified into different categories based on the features and classification algorithm used.

Keywords: Handwritten documents, Optical Character Recognition, Script Identification

Title : Enhancing Cloud Computing Security for Data Sharing Within Group Members
Country : India
Authors : P.Krithika || G.Linga Dilipan || M.Shobana

Abstract: In cloud computing , the following security functions are commonly considered are as follows, Cloud Data confidentiality ensures the owner that the stored data can be accessed only by an intended user and Cloud Data authentication ensures the group member that the data was accessed by a specified owner and the data was not altered en route. To provide these two functions,the Dynamic Group key protocol relies on one trusted entity, KGC (Key Generation Center), to choose the key, which is then transported to involved members. System uses interval based Interval Based algorithm for re-keying which not only reduce the key generation and sharing complexity, but also improves the owner data sharing efficiency and security.The main security goals for dynamic group key based data sharing in cloud to encrypt the data before sharing. Besides, the designated group manager can reveal the identity of the signature's originator when a dispute occurs, which is denoted as traceability.The goal is to secure the data sharing within group members,comparing AES algorithm with other encrypted algorithm and to analysis which algorithm suits for encrypting the data. Keywords: Bit Mangling , Cipher, Cryptanalysis.

Title : A Novel Adaptive Denoising Method for Removal of Impulse Noise in Images using Principal Component Analysis
Country : India
Authors : Vijimol VV

Abstract: Images are often corrupted by impulse noise in the procedures of image acquisition and transmission. Here,an efficient denoising scheme and its structure for the removal of random valued impulse noise in images.To achieve the goal at low cost,a low complexity architecture is proposed.I employ a PCA based technique to estimate the noisy pixels, and an edge preserving filter to reconstruct the intensity values of noisy pixels. Furthermore, an adaptive technology is used to enhance the effects of removal of impulse noise. PCA is used to estimate the noise and an edge preserving filter is used to enhance the image. Extensive experimental results demonstrate that the proposed technique can obtain better performance in terms of both quantitative evaluation and visual quality than the previous lower complexity methods.

Keywords: PCA, Edge preserving filter, image denoising, impulse detector

Authors : Moninderpal kaur || Rajnish Kansal

Abstract: Main problems of mobile computing are connections setbacks, bandwidth, heterogeneous webs and bottleneck issues. With the advent of the Internet and the plurality and collection of elaborate requests it held alongside it, the demand for extra elevated services on cellular phones is increasingly becoming urgent. Unfortunately, the new enabling technologies did not prosper in boosting new services. The adoption of Internet services has shown to be extra tough due to the difference amid the Internet and the mobile telecommunication system. Many examined the characteristics of the mobile arrangement and to elucidate the constraints that are imposed on continuing mobile services. This paper investigates the Web services for supporting for existing online and cloud based services for Smartphone's using middleware architectures.

Country : India
Authors : Mehta Ishani || UditNarayan Kar || Dr. Atul Gonsai

Abstract: Congestion control in packet switching networks became a high priority in network design and research due to ever-growing network bandwidth and intensive network applications. Dozens of various congestion control strategies have been proposed, and more are forthcoming. Based on control theory concepts congestion control can be viewed as control policy to achieve prescribed goals (e.g., round-trip delay or throughput) in a distributed network environment. This paper discusses the advantages, disadvantages and the applications of various congestion control protocols for wireless networks. It explores the motivation behind the design of congestion control protocols which is suitable to large scale wireless network and abolish drawbacks of the most widely accepted two algorithms of TCP and RCP.
