Title : An application of flexible query interface to relational databases
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Onwuachu Uzochukwu C || Oghenekaro, Linda U

Abstract: The use of databases has for long been for the computer elites in the society as well as multinationals that can pay for their services, and these has inhibited the scope and wide use of database applications. The aim of this paper is to develop yet another flexible query interface for relational databases that is user friendly and has the capability to adequately help users work with databases without a thorough knowledge of database programming. It also provides guidelines for users interested in learning the technicalities involved in database query writing. The proposed system uses an object oriented methodology and was implemented using Java programming language.From the result, the system shows a high level of flexibility in database query processing.

Keywords: Database, flexible query, Interface, object oriented and Java programming.

Title : An Effective m-Health System for Antenatal and Postnatal Care in Rural Areas of Bangladesh
Country : Bangladesh
Authors : Mst. Shahnaj Parvin

Abstract: In South Asia, Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) is so high due to the lack of health facility, doctor's insufficiency, lack of communication facility and also the poverty. Bangladesh is also suffering from this unexpected death during child birth or after that because of the insufficiency of antenatal and postnatal care especially in the rural areas. On the other hand, ICT is now a burning issue in all over the world. In Bangladesh, ICT is going to be included in every sector. Mobile Communication is the most increasing and successful achievement in our country. In this paper, we suggest and design an m-health system for the prenatal and postnatal care of women in rural areas of Bangladesh. This system is based on the mobile SMS and also the web interface is available there. It also ensures the neonatal care up to the age of complication within our limited resources.

Title : Gender classification using face image and voice
Country : India
Authors : Dharamraj yadav || Shashwat Shukla || Bramah Hazela

Abstract: This paper is about gender classification using face image and voice of a speaker. The basic aim of the paper is to predict the gender of speaker through voice sample using Auto-correlation method and predict the gender of speaker through their face image using fisher face algorithm and integrated the obtained to increase the accuracy of gender classifier. The algorithm has been applied with the help of MATLAB programming. A collected database of voice samples and image samples of male and female students has been concerned. The classification algorithm is applied on the database and accuracy of gender classifier is determined.

Title : Music Data Organization Using Heuristic Hierarchical Agglomerative Co-Clustering
Country : India
Authors : N. V. Keerthana || S. P. Yazhini

Abstract: In Data mining, Information Retrieval (IR) is the study of significant recent interest. In IR the Music Information Retrieval (MIR) is unitary of the challenging problems. At MIR, the utilization of Tags, Styles and Mood labels (T/S/M) can be extracted from some music websites. A typical problem is how to understand the relationship between the T/S/M. Co-clustering is the combination of two different types of data simultaneously. Hierarchical Co-clustering (HCC) extracts the acoustic features of music to find the similarity among the artist. In this paper, we systematically analyze the application of Heuristic Hierarchical Agglomerative Co-clustering (HHACC) method for music data organization. We demonstrate that this HHACC method achieves better performance than other clustering methods.

Keywords: Hierarchical Co-clustering, HACC, HHACC, T/S/M.

Title : Framework For Improving Access To VR Environments For Citizens With Debilities
Country : India
Authors : J.Frank Reuben Jebaraj || Dr. E. Kirubakaran

Abstract: Technological innovation in graphics and other human motion tracking hardware has promoted approaching "virtual reality" closer to "reality" and thus usage of virtual reality has been unlimited to various realms. The world is becoming ever more interconnected and reliant on information obtainable on the Internet. The use of Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) worlds as a mechanism for information access is a breakthrough. Access to that information for all people is vital. The challenge is to develop methodologies and guidelines for making VRML accessible. VRML opens up new prospects but also raises new hurdles. In this paper, we propose some strategies, develop some techniques, and provide some tools to help create more accessible VRML worlds. Also in this paper we will describe a set of techniques for improving access to VRML environments for people with debilities ranging from simple documented additions to the VRML file to scripts which aid in the creation of more accessible worlds.

Title : A Model for Energy Utilizaztion for Cloud Environment
Country : India
Authors : Kavita Rathi || Sonia

Abstract: A distributed environment is provided by cloud computing to share resources and reduce complexity of infrastructure requirements from user end. Each cloud server is defined with multiple virtual machines. The major challenge is to allocate the resources and other cloud services to user. The complexity of this process gets increases when the servers are configured under some restriction i.e. energy restriction etc.. In such situations, it is important to provide an energy effective allocation.

Country : India
Authors : Shaikh Phiroj Chhaware || Dr.Mohammad Atique || Dr. L. G. Malik

Abstract: An Automatic Data extraction from the deep web pages is an endeavoring errand. Colossal web substance are gotten to as per well-known interest submitted to Web databases and the returned data records are enwrapped in reasonably made site pages. The structures of such site pages are clearer to originator of the areas. Diverse methods of insight have been tended to before for managing this issue however every one of them have necessities in light of the way that they are changing vernacular subordinate. In like route there is principal work is open in revamp data extraction from the vital page pages having single data territories considering solidifying visual fragments close to report thing model tree of colossal site page. This paper is goes for showing the framework for modified web data extraction from basic pages which has multi data area in setting of the cross breed approach.

Title : Performance Issues on the Interoperability between IEEE 802.3 & IEEE 802.11 in Heterogeneous Network Environment
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Adetokunbo M. John-Otumu || Rebecca E. Imhanlahimi

Abstract: This paper addresses network computing that seeks to utilize the aggregate resources of many networked computers that can be installed in heterogeneous environment to solve problems of resource allocation, and so on. In doing this, it has to combine the performance from an inexpensive wired local area network (LAN) and wireless local area networks (WLAN) using different operating system, protocols and topologies due to the drawbacks of wired LAN not supporting mobility, quality of services (QoS) in security, and the usage of too many cables. The exchange of data from Wired LAN to Wireless LAN and vice versa is also another main issue to be addressed. The interoperability between the IEEE 802.3 and IEEE 802.11 is done at the data link layer (layer 2) of the OSI model.

Title : Web-Based Location-Aware System Architecture for Combating Electoral Criminal Activities in Nigeria
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Nnebe S. E. || Obiosa I. || John-Otumu M. A. || Eriata U. F.

Abstract: The proliferation of computational capabilities of location aware technology has made them viable medium for carrying out a wide range of activities, involving information exchange. One area where location aware technology is gaining great usefulness in society is electoral crime detection, reporting and combating. Looking at the just concluded election in Nigeria, one major problem hindering electoral crime detection and reporting is lack of efficient communication platform between the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), police, various security personnel and the general public.
