2 A Study on the Market Competitiveness of Small-to-Medium Sized BusinessesUtilizing CBMI(Convergence Business Model Innovation) , Eun-Young Park , Dong-Gi Kwag and Sung-Uk Bae  
Background/ Objectives: Businesses in the industrial era of the past could operate under a business model limited to surviving in a single industry by focusing on technological development centered on manufacturing. However, in the present, convergence of various industries and technologies has become prominent and market conditions have come to represent customer-centric thinking, leading to an increased tendency to view the corporate environment as more complex. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This paper seeks to first review the existing research on the convergence industry, business models and customer-centric product realization, and then propose a CBMI model that can vitalize the convergence of small-to-medium sized businesses. The intended methodology for CBMI shall consider the specific characteristics of smallto-medium and venture companies, and focus on simplicity and easy applicability to develop a business model necessary for the planning and commercialization of convergent products.Findings: CBMI methodology aims to propose consists of three stages – establishment of the CBMI scope and design guidelines, formation of an interactive communication channel, and proposition of an innovation process. This process leads to the implementation of the CBMI value flow optimized model. The first stage, by analyzing the business environment within the industry/market to reflect convergence trends and corresponding competitive strategies, establishes the scope of CBMI and the guidelines for activities such as new business model design. The second stage is when customer value may be maximized by establishing an interactive communication channel between the supplier and customers in order to reflect customer needs. It is proposed as an innovation process strategy that includes the process of customer feedback being provided to the supply channel before the final outcome of the product or service reaches the customers. For the third stage includes the supplier-customer interactive communication channel as the convergent element, the business process of how the final outcome is delivered to the customer.Application/Improvements: The concept of CBMI presented in this paper aims to enhance corporate capabilities by merging conventional business models with the current competitive trend of convergence, allowing a cultivation of competitive advantage and the establishment of innovation processes. It is believed that the proposed methodology will be helpful in presenting a strategy for the resurgence of small-to-medium sized businesses, which are facing changing business environments due to intensifying competition and heightened uncertainty

4 Analysis on the Semiotics for the Canvas of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera -Focus on the Icon·Index·Symbol of 3 classification Charles S. Peirce’s Semiotic , Man-Ki Kim
Background and Objectives: This study is a semiotic analysis of paintings sublimated to art and love by Frida Kahlo, female genius artist rising from despair, and Diego Rivera, master of Mexican muralist movement. Methods and Statistical Analysis: For the subject and scope of analysis, we selected total 10 pieces of art. We interpreted the pieces based on Charles S. Peirce’s triadic model of semiotics such as icon, index and symbol. Their paintings and the hyperreality image of simulacra will present the standards for cultural meaning, social judgment and economic value as pop culture through practices of looking and way of seeing of visual language in signifying practices. Findings: The limitation of this study is that it added the emotions of researchers toward their paintings, as well as arbitrariness and polysemy felt in signification in the cultural sense. Improvements and Applications: This shows that there are limitations in subjective interpretant of a third party (researchers) to accurately capture the binomial relations of the différence in the extended sense of semiotics and infinite imagery and inspirations of artists with referents like connotative riddles in pictures (signs).
5 A Study on Skin Dose Changes with Changes in Body Weight from Tomotherapy for Head and Neck Cancer , Kim Ki-Oh, Cheong-Hwan Lim, Lee Doo Hyun , Hong-Ryang Jung , Mi-Ja Park and Jae-Yong Lee  
Background/Objectives: When receiving radiation treatment in form of tomotherapy, most head and neck cancer patients show symptoms of weight loss caused by stomatitis and esophagitis, and skin burns. Weight loss may lead to a closer distance between the skin and the target, causing a change in the measured skin dose. This study was conducted to analyze such changes during the radiation treatment period. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The study also analyzed whether factors such as patient gender, age, diagnosis type, and treatment regimen, including surgery or chemotherapy in addition to radiotherapy, might influence the weight changes in patients, and collected values for changes in skin dose using thermoluminescence dosimeters. Findings: The study considered 20 patients with head and neck cancer, and all of these patients showed weight loss and an increase in measured skin dose. In addition, the gender or age of the patients had no direct relationship with their weight changes. Patients who hadn’t undergone surgery prior to concurrent chemotherapy and radiation therapy showed a substantial weight loss. In comparison, the patients who had undergone surgery prior to concurrent chemotherapy and radiation therapy displayed the least amount of weight loss. As the amount of weight loss became larger, so did the skin dose that was measured during tomotherapy (p<.05). Application/ Improvements: It appeared that greater weight loss led to an increase in measured skin dose, From this study, it is implied patients with large weight loss may benefit with an adjustment of their radiotherapy parameters while maintaining their target doses.
6 Fault Diagnosis of Roller Bearings with Sound Signals using Wavelets and Decision Tree Algorithm , Abhijit D. Gaikwad , V. Sugumaran and M. Amarnath
Objectives: Use of an appropriate fault diagnosis methods alerts in advance about malfunctioning and failure of bearings. Vibration and Sound signals of rotating machines contain the dynamic information about their operating conditions. There are many articles reporting suitability of vibration signals for fault diagnosis applications; however, the transducers (accelerometers) and data acquisition equipment used for vibration signals analysis are costly. This prevents small scale industries and low cost equipment from using diagnostic tools on affordability ground. On the other hand, transducers used for acquiring sound signals (microphones) are relatively low cost or/and affordable. Hence, there is a need for studying the use of sound signal for fault diagnosis applications. This paper uses sound signals acquired from roller bearings in good and simulated faulty conditions for the fault diagnosis purpose. Methods/Analysis: Sound signals from bearings having defects on inner race and outer race have been considered for analysis. Since the characteristic sound signals of faulty bearings are complex and are struck in the noise and high frequency structural resonance, simple signal processing techniques cannot be used to detect bearing fault. Hence, wavelet features are used for extracting features from sound ­signals. The energy levels at various levels of wavelet decomposition are used to define features from sound signals. The most contributing features were selected and their classification is done using decision tree algorithm. This paper also discusses the effect of features, effect of various classifier parameters on classification accuracy. Findings: In feature ­classification of the fault signals the RBIO 2.4 wavelet has given the highest classification accuracy of 96.66%. Out of the 120 total instances, 116 (96.66%) were correctly identified while 4 instances were incorrectly classified with an ­error margin of (3.33%). Application/Improvements: An extensive investigation has been made by a J48 algorithm which produced better predictive performance than the other algorithms. The training and the optimization of J48 model with their essential parametric measures are reported. Based on the overall study, J48 with variation in number of ­objects (from 1 to 6) feature was found as the most successful classification algorithm that achieved the best classification ­accuracy of 96.66%. The classification accuracy of the proposed algorithm has been found better with only 4 misclassified features. The classification capability and the performance evaluation of J48 algorithm with confusion matrix and detailed ­classification accuracy is reported and discussed for further study

12 Comparison of the Effects of Deep Neck Flexor Strengthening Exercises and Mackenzie Neck Exercises on Head Forward Postures Due to the Use of Smartphones , Eun-Young Kim , Keun-Jo Kim and Hee-Ryong Park
In this study, experimentswere conducted to compare the effects of deep neck flexor strengthening exercises and Mackenzie neck exercises on head forward postures resulting from the use of smartphones. In this study, 25 adult males and females who were students of G University, were using a smartphone for at least three hours per day, had round shoulder postures with a distance between the floor and the acromion exceeding 2.5cm in a supine position during tests, and showed 10 points or higher neck function disability indexes were selected and randomly assigned to a deep neck flexor strengthening exercise group using PBU of 12 subjects which was an experimental group or a Mackenzie neck exercise group of 13 subjects which was a control group and the exercises were performed three times per week for four weeks. When the neck disability indexes and the levels of static deep neck flexor muscle strength before and after training were compared, both the deep neck flexor strengthening exercise group using PBU and the Mackenzie neck exercise group showed significant differences (p<.05). The degrees of changes in the level of breathing, neck disability indexes and the levels of static deep neck flexor muscle strength of the two groups were compared and the results did not show any significant difference. Although no significant differences were shown when the deep neck flexor strengthening exercise group using PBU and the Mackenzie neck exercise group were compared with each other, improvement in neck disability indexes and the levels of static deep neck flexor muscle strength were shown when those before and after training were compared. Therefore, these exercises can be said to contribute to the improvement of posture control. These active exercises can be said to be important in obtaining long-term treatment effects on neck pain.
13 A Study on the Effects of Small Enterprises’ Motivations to Request Consulting from the Perspective of Transaction Cost Economics and Sociological Neoinstitutionalism , SungHee Yoon and YenYoo You
Although there are many motivations to request consulting, this study approaches them within the theoretical frameworks of transaction cost economics and sociological neoinstitutionalism. According to neoinstitutionalism, enterprises do not request consulting for economic efficiency. Instead, they think of it as an institution, and they decide to participate in consulting based on that notion rather than on economic criteria such as rationalization of management decisionmaking, legitimization of organizations, and diffusion of management concepts and innovations. Drawing on the theory of neoinstitutionalism, we identify three factors that influence the decision-making to participate in consulting: “solicitations of enterprises experienced with consulting,” “competitors’ consulting requests,” and “consultants’ solicitations and publicities.” Using the frameworks of transaction cost economics and neoinstitutionalism theory, we study small enterprises’ motivations to request consulting, the outcomes they experience, and their satisfaction with those outcomes. It is confirmed that factors drawn from transaction cost economics have significant effects on all three.

18 An International Comparison of Social Mobility from the Perspective of Assortative Mating   , Jin-Yeong Kim , Byung In Lim and Seung-Rae Kim
This paper compares the social mobility of OECD countries using PISA data, which contain information on the educational attainment of parents of 15-year-old students. We derive several measures of the degree of assortative mating in terms of educational attainment at the country level from parents’ educational attainment. It turns out that Eastern European countries have a high degree of assortative mating while Northern European countries have a distinctively lower degree. Furthermore, for 12 countries with measures of intergenerational income elasticity, we find a positive relationship between the degree of assortative mating and the intergenerational income elasticity. Compared with other OECD countries, Korea has a somewhat high degree of assortative mating. From the degree of assortative mating by educational attainment, we can infer that the intergenerational income elasticity of Korea might be between 0.3 and 0.4, which is higher than that found in previous studies.

28 Photoplethysmogram Based Biometric Recognition for Twins , Nur Izzati Mohammed Nadzri , Mariana Sulaimi, Lina Fadhilah Umadi and Khairul Azami Sidek  
This paper presents a photoplethysmogram (PPG) based biometric recognition technique for twins. PPG devices have been widely used due to its advantages such as non-invasive, low cost and small in size which makes it a convenient analytical tool. To the best of our knowledge, little has been set pertaining to biometric recognition for twins using PPG signal. A total of six subjects from three couple of twins were used for experimentation purposes. The signals were processed using a low pass filter to remove unwanted noise. Then, multiple cycle of PPG waveforms were extracted and later, Naive Bayes (NB) and Radial Basis Function (RBF) network classifiers are used to categorize the subjects using the discriminant features. Based on the experimentation results, classification accuracies of 97% and 94% were achieved when using Naive Bayes and RBF network respectively which suggests the capability of our proposed system to identify individuals regardless whether the persons is a twin or not. The outcome also provides complimentary mechanism to detect a person besides using the current existing methods

34 An Exploratory Study on E-business Risks due to the Sector Classification of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises   , SangSun Kim , JeongWan Hong and YenYoo You  
OwingtoInformationandthemobilerevolution,e-businesshasbecomethemostimportantelementofmodernmanagement. E-business has the advantage that an organization can conduct its own business efficiently and effectively at relatively lower cost; however, it also carries the risk of affecting the survival of the entire organization. As the number of clients who use Internet and enterprises entering e-business is increasing, various risk factors have shown constant recurrence, and their importance is inevitably increasing. Although studies on e-business risks have been actively conducted since the mid1990s, there have been limits in applying them in practical work as only few of them have focused on the e-business risk factors of small and medium-sized enterprises and their management methods. Therefore, this study intends to analyze the challenges by classifying the existing studies based on the risk factors and suggesting directions for future studies.

43 Arsenic transport in canal water and across rice fields in district Badin , Muhammad Chohan , Mehrunisa Memon, Inayatullah Rajpar , Aijaz Ali Khooharo , Muhammad Ismail Kumbhar , Hidayatullah Kakar
Background/Objectives: Irrigation water at Phuleli and Akram canals carry the waste of Hyderabad city and other places on the way to rice fields at lower part of Indus Plain. The long term use of arsenic contaminated irrigation water can accumulate arsenic in rice soils. This study evaluated total arsenic in irrigation water and transported load to rice sites, in addition to the arsenic concentration in main canals and waste sites on the way to Badin. Methods: Atomic absorption spectrophotometer equipped with hydride vapor assembly was used to analyze the arsenic concentrations in irrigation water. Findings: Currently, the irrigation water quality was generally within the permissible limits of FAO for rice. All types of wastes (14.62-37.2 µg L-1) entering the Phuleli and Akram canals (7.08 µg L-1) on the way contributed to total arsenic (6.30-57.12 µg L-1) in irrigation water at the entrance of rice sites. However, higher arsenic contamination in irrigation water was due to sugar industry waste (37.2 µg L-1) and lowest due to city waste of Badin (14.62 µg L-1). The data indicated that mean total arsenic concentration from irrigation water would load 0.12 and 0.14 mg kg-1 of arsenic annually in soils on the basis of net 1000 and 1300 mm a -1 water application to rice, respectively. Applications/Improvements: The results clearly indicated that waste added from different sources may aggravate the arsenic contamination of canal water and yet the accumulation in rice fields will keep on increasing. It is suggested that waste must be treated before releasing to prevent contamination of rice field.

50 Dual-Band, Miniaturized, Enhanced-Gain Patch Antennas using Differentially-Loaded Metastructures   , Gayathri Rajaraman, M. Anitha , Athrish Mukerjee , Khagindra Sood and Rajeev Jyoti  
We propose a novel miniaturized dual-band microstrip patch antenna with improved gain for potential wireless applications. Two variants of the proposed configuration have been optimized and the analyzed results presented. The basic patch antenna is loaded with two pairs of Complementary Split Ring Resonators (CSRR’s) on both sides of its non-radiating edges with different dimensions on both sides. The radiation performance of the first variant and its gain is further improved by etching four pairs of CSRR on the ground plane which controls the surface waves effectively. The proposed antenna shows an analyzed gain of 1.80 & 5.67 dB respectively in the two bands 1.68, 2.59 GHz. The antenna may find application in both the ISM (L band) and Wimax applications. In a second variant, the gain is further improved by employing a Reactive Impedance Surface (RIS). In this case, the analyzed gain is found to be 5.69 & 5.12 dB respectively at 2.05, 2.39 GHz. This antenna may be suitable for UMTS and ISM applications. The design dimensions of the patch, CSRR’s and the RIS are obtained from expressions available in literature. Subsequently, simulation and optimization of the structures is carried out with Ansys HFSS®; a benchmarked E.M. simulator. The analyzed results are presented.

52 Secure Data Transfer through Audio Signal with LSA   , R. Valarmathi and G. M. Kadhar Nawaz  
Today’s large demand of internet applications requires data to be transmitted in a secure manner. Data transmission in public communication system is not secure because of interception and improper manipulation by eavesdropper. So the attractive solution for this problem is steganography. Steganography is the scheme of hiding the existence of secret information by concealing it into another medium such as image, video or audio. Cryptography is used to encrypt the data so that it is unreadable by a third party. So to add another layer of protection we can encrypt the key of the hidden message. This paper proposes a new algorithm to hide the data in Audio signal and it uses Linear Subsequence Algorithm (LSA) which increases data protection.

55 Coupling Measures and its Impact on Object-Oriented Software Quality   , V. S. Bidve and P. Sarasu  
Metrics measurement is an important means to access the quality of software systems. Software metrics measurement helps in quick and accurate analysis of software quality. Coupling metrics is a kind of software metrics having a significant impact on several qualities attributes of the object-oriented software. In literature, coupling metrics is used to access the software quality attributes like reliability, efficiency, integrity, maintainability, flexibility, portability, reusability and interoperability, etc. of object-oriented software. However, the threshold values for software coupling measures are still not fully defined. This paper investigates the values of seven coupling metrics and explores the impact of coupling metrics values on different quality attributes of the object-oriented software. The Java source code is analyzed to find coupling between different modules of java code. The coupling values of twenty five Java projects are measured to find behavior of coupling values. Using the resulting coupling values of the twenty five projects, percentage threshold values of seven coupling measures are defined. Also the behavior of coupling metrics is plotted using graph. It is found from the results that the percentage threshold value of parameter coupling is in between 24 to 34. Similarly, the threshold percentage of inheritance coupling is between 3 to 13, global coupling is 0 to 7, data abstraction coupling is 9 to 19, import coupling is 18 to 28, export coupling is 19 to 29 and external coupling is 0 to 5. It means parameter coupling, import and export coupling has higher range of values. Inheritance and data abstraction coupling has a medium range of values and global and external coupling have a least range of values. It is also found that the coupling measures have an impact on various quality attributes of the object-oriented software. If the developer could control the values of few important metrics like parameter, inheritance and data abstraction coupling, it will result in improving the overall quality of object-oriented software. Applications: This work is useful for software professionals to maintain level of coupling while developing software. The data set used in this work is totally new and unique.
56 Multi-Objective Firefly Algorithm for Multi-Class Gene Selection   , G. V. Manoharan and R. Shanmugalakshmi
Multiclass cancer classification is an emerging technique which presents the possibility of cancer identification using microarray data. For selecting genes in the multiclass gene categorization filter methods are frequently used. But the filter method is not applicable for some of the multiclass microarray data sets because of the rigorous heterogeneity of biological tissues and samples. So, for selecting genes decay the multiclass ranking statistics into class explicit statistics and then Pareto-front analysis is used. Also, to identify the Pareto-optimal set the non-dominant sorting genetic algorithm is suggested. But the drawback is this method does not scale with high complexity. Because, where the number of elements which are represented to mutation is large there is an exponential raise in search space size. So, in this manuscript an innovative technique is introduced which is called Multiobjective Firefly Algorithm for Multiclass Gene Selection (MFGS). A firefly has a tendency to be fascinated towards other fireflies with superior flash intensity. The multiple objective firefly algorithms intend to optimize two or more conflicting characteristics represented by fitness functions. In the multiple objective firefly method, a set of Pareto-optimal solutions are created which concurrently optimize the contradictory necessities of the multiple fitness functions. In the proposed method, the genes are selected by optimizing the number of fireflies in the multiple class-specific statistics. An experimental result shows that when compared to the existing method, there is less complexity, high classification accuracy of the proposed MFGS method.
57 Impact of Different Climate of European Countries on Working and Power Dissipation of Electronics Circuits , Diksha Singla, Viren Singh Pathania, Ayushi Chodha and Bakshish Gill  
Background/Objectives: Environment temperature play a pivotal role in leakage power dissipation in any Electronic devices. Methods/Statistical Analysis: We are performing an experiment by using a FPGA system and we have taken the temperatures of capitals of different countries and corresponding power dissipation of our electronic device under test. Findings: When there is increase in temperature due to global warming and other conditions then more supply power is needed due to which there is a depletion in resources. In the other words, if there is increase in temperature then we need to provide more supply power because leakage power is directly proportional to ambient temperature. Application/ Improvements: We can think to regulate temperature of environment with cooling system in order to reduce power dissipation of any electronic device in operation.
58 Satellite Image Segmentation based on YCbCr Color Space   , P. Ganesan, V. Rajini , B. S. Sathish , V. Kalist and S. K. Khamar Basha
Segmentation is one of the most important processes in the satellite image processing to retrieve most useful information from the satellite images. This paper proposed an effective fuzzy based method of segmentation of satellite images in YCbCr color space. The YCbCr Color space represents color as intensity and exploits the characteristics of human eye. Our eye is more sensitive to intensity than hue. The intensity component can be stored with greater accuracy as the amount of information to be minimized. The JPEG file format mostly uses this color space to discard the unwanted or unimportant information. In the proposed approach, the satellite image in RGB color space is transform into YCbCr color space and then the transformed satellite image is split into three different components (channels or images) based on luminance and chrominance. Subsequently Fuzzy based segmentation is applied separately for all three components for efficient segmentation. Finally the threshold is applied to extract the foreground (object) from the background. The experimental result reveals that the proposed fuzzy based segmentation method is efficient and accurate for extracting the necessary information from the satellite images.
59 Experimental Study of Sparse Watermarking Techniques for Multibiometric System   , Rohit M. Thanki and Komal R. Borisagar  
This paper focus on study and analysis of effect of watermarking technique in spatial domain combined with cs theory on verification and authentication performance of multibiometric system. In presented techniques, watermark fingerprint is compressed using CS theory before embedding into host biometric. These compressed fingerprint features embed into face image such that watermarked face image is used for verification and authentication of individual. Compressed fingerprint features are used for cross verification and authentication of individual. The modified LSB substitution based technique and modified correlation based technique using WGN combined with CS theory used to secure biometric data at system database and communication channel between two checkpoints of multibiometric system, respectively. The verification accuracy of multibiometric system using these watermarking techniques is around 96 % with more computational security and high perceptual quality of biometric data. The results show that these watermarking techniques do not have effect on authentication performance of multibiometric system. The novelty of paper is combined compressive sensing theory with watermarking technique for security of multibiometric data.

61 A Hybrid Face Detection Approach in Color Images with Complex Background   , Esmaeil Kheirkhah and Zahra Sadri Tabatabaie  
Human face detection in colour images has been researched extensively over the past decades. Face detection has several applications in areas, such as security access control, visual surveillance, video conferencing, intelligent human-computer interfaces and content-based information retrieval. An ideal face detection system should detect faces from a given image/ video regardless of their poses, illumination, scale, age, race, image quality, and image complexity with optimum speed and very low false-positive rate. In this paper a hybrid approach, based on the skin color information and Adaboost-based face detection, is proposed. The key points of the proposed framework are background elimination and down-sizing using the adaptive skin colour classification and segmentation, as well as sub-window size estimation. Therefore, the skin colour segments, as face candidates, were searched instead of the whole image. Meanwhile, the Viola-Jones Adaboost-based face detector was adopted in this research as the final face detector. In order to test the accuracy of the proposed algorithm, the proposed system was implemented and some experiments were also conducted on the standard image datasets such as Caltech (California Institute of Technology) standard image dataset. The proposed hybrid face detection system was compared with the Viola-Jones face detection system. The experiments showed that the proposed approach could efficiently improve the face detection system in both aspects, namely, accuracy (98.88%) and detection time (259.59 ms).
62 Investigation of UDP Bot Flooding Attack , Bijalwan Anchit and Singh Harvinder 
Background/Objectives: This paper presents the analysis of Bot flooding attack which leads to DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) using a lab experiment in a networked environment creating a real DDOS attack like scenario. Methods: To study the DDOS attack through UDP (User Datagram Protocol) Bot flooding, a lab setup is done in a networked environment. A UDP flood attack starts by sending a huge number of UDP packets from different IP addresses. The experimentation is performed using NS2. The results generated are used as evidences to prove that a machine is victimized and is facing DDOS attack. Graphical evidence is also presented for the DDOS attack using UDP packets flooding. Findings: The evidences collected from the lab experimentation clearly show the demarcation between the normal network traffic and the traffic containing UDP Bot flood. By making the comparison between normal and abnormal network traffic through the UDP flow graph the possibility of DDOS is predicted.

64 Active and Reactive Power Management in Microgrid: Analysis in Grid Connected and Islanded Mode of Operation. , Niraj Kumar Choudhary , Soumya Ranjan Mohanty and Ravindra Kumar Singh
Load shared by Distributed Generators (DGs) depends upon the mode of operation; therefore power management in Microgrid (MG) is an important area which needs investigation. This paper investigates the impact of DG on the distribution system, where the study of load sharing among various DGs and utility grid has been performed for two cases: 1. When equivalent source based DG is connected and 2. When Photovoltaic (PV) and fuel cell based DG is integrated to the distribution network. PV and fuel cell based DG doesn’t behave as stiff current/voltage source either due to parametric uncertainties or due to external disturbances like weather conditions and load changes. From simulation results it has been observed that even though the capacity of all DGs are equal but when change in load occurs, it doesn’t ensure that the DGs will equally share the active and reactive power. All the simulation studies have been performed in MATLAB/SIMULINK.

In the fast moving world with the amazingly growing technology, character recognitions play a wide role by providing more scope to perform research in OCR techniques. Sanskrit handwritten recognition has been one of the challenging research areas in the field of pattern recognition. Character recognition is the electronic translation of scanned images of handwritten or printed text into a machine encoded text. The character recognition is a standout amongst the most generally utilized biometric attributes for authentication of persons and document. In this paper proposed an off line handwritten character recognition framework utilizing feed forward neural network. A handwritten Sanskrit character is resized into 20x30 pixels and this character is used for training the neural network. After the training process, the same character is given as input to the neural network with different set of neurons in hidden layer and their recognition accuracy rate for different Sanskrit characters has been calculated and compared. The results of the proposed system yields good recognition accuracy rates comparable to that of other handwritten character recognition systems.

68 Authentication Framework for Military Applications Employing Wireless Sensor Networks and Private Cloud , S. Magesh , K. Nimalaand A. R. Nagoor Meeran
Objectives: To provide an authentication framework between military data centres pertaining to different levels of operations within the private cloud and a simple authentication schema for authenticating users at the wing-commander level in the special sinks deployed in our territory closer to line of control. Methods: In order to achieve the above mentioned objectives, we designed a conceptual defense structure that will highlight the various hierarchical levels of military operations. Military WSNs and data centres will utilize the designed simple authentication schema to improve the lifetime of the WSNs. The methodology adopted primarily consists of modifications to the existing Kerberos setup, so that it could fit the conceptual defense structure by utilizing Heimdal Kerberos distribution. Heimdal’s modified Kerberos distribution is utilized in the cloud gateway system to create Kerberos Distribution Center. The modified Kerberos equations are provided in this paper. Findings: Based on the simulations carried out, it is identified that number of messages required for various dialogs for modified Kerberos is relatively less compared to the original version of Kerberos. The response time for modified Kerberos in single realm and cross realm based on different number of requests showed that modified Kerberos is performing better and efficient with respect to the response time metric. Minimum number of messages required for Kerberos Authentication using v4 (Simple dialog), v4 (Secure dialog), v4 (Authentication dialog), v5 (Request for service in another realm using Inter realm authentication) are 3, 5, 6 and 7 respectively. Response times range for single realm lie in the range of 3ms to 20ms approximately for 10 to 100 requests per minute. Response times range for cross realm lie in the range of 7ms to 47ms approximately for 10 to 100 requests per minute. The authentication time to authenticate instructions received at special sinks from level 1 resource via cloud gateway ranges from 4.5ms to 6ms for message sizes ranging from 100 bytes to 1000 bytes. The response times obtained from single realm authentication indicates lesser values as compared against cross realm authentication which is in consensus with the theory of Kerberos. Applications: The proposed scheme finds its application in all mission critical tasks where the time taken for successful authentication of users should be drastically reduced to improve the system performance.
69 A Robust Instance Weighting Technique for Nearest Neighbor Classification in Noisy Environments , E. Parvinnia, M. R. Moosavi , M. Zolghadri Jahromi and M. H. Sadreddini 
The performance of Nearest Neighbor (NN) classifier is highly dependent on the distance (or similarity) function used to find the NN of an input test pattern. Many of the proposed algorithms try to optimize the accuracy of the NN rule using a weighted distance function. In this scheme, a weight parameter is learned for each of the training instances. The weights of training instances are used in the generalization phase to find the NN of an input test pattern. The Weighted Distance Nearest Neighbor (WDNN) algorithm attempts to maximize the leave-one-out classification rate of the training set by adjusting the weight parameters. The procedure simply leads to weights that overfit the train data, which degrades the performance of the method especially in noisy environments. In this paper, we propose an enhanced version of WDNN, called Overfit Avoidance for WDNN (OAWDNN), that significantly outperforms the algorithm in generalization phase. The proposed method uses an early stopping approach to decrease instance weights specified by WDNN, which implicitly makes the class boundary smooth and consequently more generalized. In order to evaluate robustness of the algorithm, class label noise is added to a variety of UCI datasets. The experimental results show the supremacy of the proposed method in generalization accuracy.
70 BER Analysis of WiMAX using Diverse Channel Coding Schemes , Mahwash Manzoor and Lavish Kansal 
WiMAX is the most popular wireless technology these days for it has high data rates and better performance than other wireless and wired broadband technologies. The performance of WiMAX is severely affected by the multipath fading environment. The efficiency of the WiMAX system can be improved using efficient forward error coding schemes. In this paper a comparison of various FEC schemes such as BCH, RS, LDPC and convolution encoding has been done on two different channels namely-Rayleigh and AWGN. The BER performance of the WiMAX system is further analyzed by utilizing diverse modulation levels over both Rayleigh and AWGN channel. The simulation results show that the best performance is achieved by RS codes and BCH codes followed by LDPC codes and then the convolutional codes. Also, as we vary the code rate of the convolution encoder the BER further degrades. The graphical representations show that the improvement can go as high as 4 dB in some cases in terms of SNR required achieving a particular BER value. The use of RS and BCH encoding schemes will result in better performance in existing WiMAX systems.
71 . A Steganography Approach over Video Images to Improve Security , Mritha Ramalingam and Nor Ashidi Mat Isa 
Nowadays the growth of information technologies makes it convenient for people to transmit mass data like confidential biomedical records, banking or financial data through Internet. However, it also provides vast opportunities for hackers to filch valuable information. Therefore, security becomes an important issue. Steganography is a recently developed technique in the data security field and has received significant attention from both industry and academia. Digital data hiding methods can hide message in multimedia files for secret communications. This paper presents a secure data hiding technique for video images using random key encoding function. Secret data are embedded into the random Red Green Blue (RGB) pixel values of the cover-video images using an encryption key. The cover-video images are pre-processed to prevent overflow/underflow. Experimental results indicate that the extracted data are without any errors. The performance of the proposed scheme is proved in terms of security and (Peak signal noise ratio) PSNR values.
72 Dimensional Arrow Detection from CAD Drawings. , Aditya Mukesh Intwala, Kiran Kharade , Ravindra Chaugule and Atul Magikar.
Objectives: This paper proposes an approach to effectively identify dimensional arrow heads from the CAD drawing images. Methods/Analysis: The proposed approach implements a multi-level thresholding and morphological operations in order to detect arrow like entity and some additional morphological steps in order to filter out non-arrow like entities from CAD drawing images. A histogram based multi-level thresholding is implemented. Morphological Black hat is used to detect solid arrow heads while morphological white hat is used to detect line arrow heads. Properties of arrow heads are used to filter out unwanted entities. Findings: CAD drawings contain arrows to depict dimensions of the models. In many situations, users do not have access to the CAD file for the drawing or do not have suitable software to visualize the CAD file. In such cases, an image of 2D drawing can be processed in automated or semi-automated way to extract dimensional relationships between entities. One step in such extraction is to detect dimensional arrow heads. The approach was tested on variety of images of CAD drawings with increasing difficulties with 96.655% success rate. The F1 score for each image was calculated and the cumulative average F1 score was found out to be 0.9596, precision rate is 95.95%, recall rate is 96.83% which suggests acceptable accuracy. Applications/Improvement: The proposed approach helps to detect dimensional arrow heads from CAD drawing images using image processing

The output characteristics of Photovoltaic (PV) arrays are nonlinear and change with the cell’s temperature and solar radiation. Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) methods are used to maximize the PV array output power by tracking continuously the maximum power point (MPP). This paper presents an integrated offline Genetic Algorithm (GA) and artificialneuralnetwork (ANN)to track the solarpower optimallybasedonvarious operationconditionsdue to the uncertain climate change. Data are optimized by GA and then these optimum values are used in neural network training. The obtained results show minimal error of MPP, optimal voltage (Vmpp) and superior capability of the suggested method in the MPPT. The simulation results are presented by using Matlab/Simulink and show that ANN–GA controller of grid-connected mode can meet the need of load easily and have fewer fluctuations around the maximum power point; also, this method has well regulated PV output power and it produces extra power rather than Modified Perturb & Observe (MP&O) method for different conditions. Moreover, to control both line voltage and current, a grid side P-Q controller has been applied.

Background/Objective: Dynamic Time Warping (DTW), a similarity measure works in O(N2 ) complexity. Cause of this it will be used for small datasets only. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this work, we introduced Efficient DTW (EDTW), which works in linear time. It uses two level approaches. In the first level data reduction is performed, and in the second level warping distance and path are calculated. Findings: While calculating the values of distance matrix, values along the warping path only considered and calculated. For time series of length n, maximum n values of distance matrix are calculated. So it works in linear time. Improvements/Applications: We applied this distance measure to UCR Time Series archive and calculated error rate of 1NN classification.

Objectivities: This paper analyzes the complete performance of institution freedom with single node range of motion method. Check mattress in this assessment is generally based upon community Simulator 2 (NS-2) environment. Methods/ Analysis: Ability to move of nodes is an essential issue in mobile adhoc sites (MANET). Nodes in MANET move around in one network to one other for my part and within the condition of organization. In unmarried client mobility scheme each client performs registration for my own part in new MANET whereas in institution range of motion scheme best one client in a set just like group consultant (GR) functions registration with respect to all the nodes in the group and can be given Health care of address (COA). Internet process (IP) of most other nodes in the group continues to be identical and then your performance examination and reviews of one and group mobility in is reviewed. Finding: Our simulated outcomes demonstrate that group range of motion plan reduces selection of emails and uses significantly less time for subscription of nodes when compared with single node ability to move plan. Consequently community load is reduced in institution range of motion scheme. Novelty/Improvement: The tested end result suggests that group mobility scheme no much longer simplest reduces the selection of messages; in addition, it minimizes the community fill and time for sign up of nodes
76 Image Encryption based on the Reflected Binary Code Method with the Combination of FFT , R. Vijayaraghavan , S. Sathya and N. R. Raajan 
Image encryption is used to protect the data of an image in the most secure way. In this paper, we perform encryption and decryption of the three color planes based on gray code effect and fast Fourier transform. Gray level codes indicate that occurrence of one bit changes from a previous state of current. This process allows the system to detect the error when more than one bit changes occur. It is more efficient than binary bit plane decomposition. The Fourier transform is mainly used to represent the frequency characteristic of a spatial domain image. The color plane scrambling process is done by combining three individual encrypted planes into one composite image. This method which is applicable for any type of image formats as bmp, JPEG, GIF. This paper gives a simple way to scramble the image in unpredictable way. It provides more security than other encryption algorithm. The original images can be retrieved using a correct security key which achieves better results than the other existing methods. By exploiting gray code and Fourier transforms it increases the difficulty of decoding.

Novelty/Improvements: The algorithm proposed in the paper is fully automatic and does not require any human intervention. The segmentation algorithm proposed separates one tooth with its perimeter region intact in one image. The number of output images generated are equal to number of teeth in input IOPA.
80 Automatic Segmentation of Lower Jaw and Mandibular Bone in Digital Dental Panoramic Radiographs. , Anjali Naik , Shubhangi Tikhe , Sadashiv Bhide , K. P. Kaliyamurthie and T. Saravanan.
Objectives: Panoramic x-ray is a medical imaging technique used in dentistry. This paper aims to present fully automatic segmentation algorithm to extract lower jaw and mandible from panoramic x-ray. Methods/Analysis: Panoramic x-rays provide features of various diseases like advanced periodontal diseases, cysts, tumors, impacted teeth, fractures in lower or upper jaw, etc. Image processing techniques are applied on these images to detect diseases automatically. Segmentation is an inevitable step in automation to extract disease features. Majority existing literature use semi-automatic method for segmentation of panoramic x-ray. The algorithm proposed in this paper is fully automatic method of segmentation. Findings: Panoramic x-rays give entire view of mouth and facilitate assessment of hard tissue structures of the facial area rather than assessment of dental carries. Segmentation of panoramic x-rays is an inevitable step in automating diagnosis of oral disorders like, tumor, cysts, fracture, etc. In this paper, an algorithm is developed for automatic segmentation of lower jaw and then mandibular bone in dental digital panoramic x-ray. Dental digital panoramic x-ray is a good quality image which does not require noise removal. The segmentation algorithm uses novel strips method where input image is subdivided in number of strips. These strips are further processed to separate lower jaw and mandible from input image. The algorithm is fully automatic and does not involve human intervention at any level. Paper presents analysis of number of strips as 3, 5, 7 and 9. The algorithm presented in this paper gives 93% success for segmentation of lower jaw and 90% success in segmentation of mandible structure when strip count is 5. Applications/Improvement: Strip method focuses ROI and ignores components like teeth, spinal cord shadow, etc. Central strip is useful to segment lower jaw whereas side strips are useful to detect mandible edge points.
81 CAARD - Context Aware App Recommendation and Delivery using Decision Support Systems. , V. Praveena  Adithya Raam Sankar, S. Jeya Balaji, R. Sreyas Naaraayanan and Srikrishnan Subramanian.
Objectives: To deliver the affinity of user(s) as a service to prospective developers and help them in providing context aware content. Methods: First, the list of apps installed on the mobile device is retrieved using a special module attached to the host application and is then tagged according to its genre. The module then runs a background service to record the active times of each application. All these information is synchronized with the database on the cloud periodically. The CAARD engine analyses the information in the database to predict the affinity of the user(s). Findings: Currently the users are classified based on their location and categorized using search history, browsing pattern which are not so efficient. They sometimes aim to deliver contents based on the web searches. This again does not necessarily mirror the requirements of the user as all the search terms may be trivial and need not always be specific to the user. Most if the previous systems aim to modify web based techniques for the mobile ecosystem which makes it less efficient. This directly reflects on the revenue of the developers or results in the fall of user base. The proposed system understands the user based on the applications that he frequently uses. This makes it even more user centric and helps the developers in delivering content that is specific to each of the users. Applications: One possible application of this system could be to display more relevant advertisements. This persuades the user to read and click the advertisement thus generating more revenue. Another implementation could be to recommend products that the user might be interested to buy

84 Modi’s Make in India drive: Right Time to give a National Call to become Global Manufacturing Hub. , Surya Rashmi Rawat, Samanth Dushyanth, Anant Kediya and Pankhuri Dhruvastha.
Background: In the present scenario “economy” and other related phenomena have taken the centre stage, every area of society; be it politics, business or professional; revolves around the principles of economy. In this competitive world, realising the interdependence of the globe for economic survival, the potential of India to set up production units and easy access to skilled and unskilled labour in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi came up with the notion ‘‘Make in India”. Objectives: The objective of this research is to explore the feasibility of launching a national call to become global manufacturing Hub. Method/Analysis: The study is based on both primary as well as secondary sources of information. Secondary data is collected from case studies, articles, journals, newspapers and magazines. Primary data was collected through a questionnaire survey over a group of 300 people from Pune in the age groups of 18-28 years, 28-40 years and 40-50 years in the 1:1:1 proportion. Views of eminent personalities were also duly considered. Findings: At the end the researcher concluded that it is indeed the right time to roll out ‘Make in India’ initiative. According to survey analysis, majority of the population strongly believed that India is fully prepared to host such an initiative which may initially sound difficult but would definitely be paying huge dividends soon in the terms of employment, economic development and prosperity to the nation. Study also delved upon the challenges and threats before the country today and inferred that though on one hand we have major challenges confronting our ways, but none of these barriers are insurmountable. The population strongly believed that we are capable enough to overcome these hurdles and become a global manufacturing hub. Positive experiences in past like Mission Mangalyaan and the fact that India - a democracy with 1.29 billion populations and that too mainly dominated by the young population in the age group of 10 to 24 years with good economic status and literacy rate seems to have affirmed their faith. Applications: On one side where many people are calling Make in India drive just a hoax and results of some studies are also averse to its feasibility, the results of this empirical study conducted over a sample that understands the topic well would be big a respite and very encouraging for the people who want to trust this move. After all it is this faith of the population which will decide the success of this initiative.
85 Transformation of Consumer Attitude through Social Media towards Purchase Intention of Cars. , Prabha Kiran and S. Vasantha.
Background/Objectives: Transformation is an ever changing phenomenon which can impact various spheres of consumer decision making. Attitudes can shape consumer’s minds, make them prefer or ignore objects and products. Hence, the consumer behaviors are impacted by attitudes and force them to behave in a quite consistent way toward comparable objects. The unprecedented rise in social media usage and its impact on consumer’s attitude is also very evident. The study attempts to specify the factors affecting consumer’s attitude towards purchase intention of automobile giving special reference to cars. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this context consumer based attitude scale was developed and a questionnaire was completed by respondents who either have purchased a car in last one year or are willing to purchase one in next one year. Frequency, t-test, One way Anova and factor analysis were used for data analysis using SPSS 20.0. Findings: In the end five factors were found to have strong impact on consumer’s attitude towards development of purchase intension of cars. It was also found that Attitude of males and females towards car related information search on social media are different from each other. The study also found that there is significant difference in social media information search related to car factors (Economical, Functional and Psychological) considered for purchasing a car between male and female. Applications/Improvements: There is a meaningful relationship between the car related factors (economical, functional and psychological) with respect to their incomes and family types. There was a significant relationship between income and economical car factors. Income was found to have a significant relationship with psychological factors as well. In terms of family types it was found that car factors had a significant relationship. Hence marketers can focus on that aspects too while advertising via social media.
86 Fault Tolerant Control for Spaceborne Dual Ring Counters with Selective Overriding   , Jung–Min Yang , Im Y. Jung and Seong Woo Kwak  
Among primary asynchronous sequential circuits, ring counters are used as an important building block in various ­spaceborne digital systems. As they are subject to adverse effects of radiation, it is imperative that they be given fault tolerance mechanism for robust operation. This paper presents a corrective control scheme for tolerating state transition faults in ring counters. The considered ring counter has the structure of Double Modular Redundancy (DMR), in which some selected memory bits of each ring counter module can override the counterpart values of the other module. With this structure, we can design a static corrective controller that tolerates any state transition fault occurring to the dual ring counter. Though the state information is unavailable, we can implement a simple fault tolerant control scheme using ­corrective control. The proposed control scheme is validated in VHDL experiments.

88 A Hybrid Approach for Simultaneous Gene Clustering and Gene Selection for Pattern Classification. , Pradeep Kumar Mallick, Debahuti Mishra, Srikanta Patanaik and Kailash Shaw.
Objectives: This study proposes a hybrid model of simultaneous gene clustering and gene selection for gene expression datasets using hierarchical clustering and rough set theory for classification of data patterns. Methods/Analysis: The internal architecture of the proposed model broadly works in three phases, in first phase; the initial clusters are formed using hierarchical clustering and again those resulted clusters are divided into more clusters using based on lower and upper approximation property of rough set theory. In second phase; the reduct property of rough set is applied on obtained clusters from the second phase; and in third phase, the gene ranking and cluster ranking has been employed to rank the genes in clusters to discover significant of informative genes. This method tries to find the genes of interest known as significant genes and maximize the accuracy of the model with reduction percentage. The advantage of this approach is analyzed by experimental results on two benchmark datasets such as Leukemia and Colon Cancer. Finally, the classification performance of the original datasets were recorded using Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier and also with few existing feature/gene selection and clustering techniques. Findings: The experimental results and performance measures proves the efficiency of the proposed hybridized technique over existing feature/gene selection as well as established traditional k-means clustering technique

Background/Objectives: Nanotechnology has been stated in Malaysia New Economic Model and widely used in much application. The article focuses on nanoparticle formation using liquid pulsed-laser ablation technique. Methods: There are two methods have been used to produce the metal nanoparticles namely breakdown and build up method. In this article, the pulse laser ablation (build up method) has been used to generate the metal nanoparticles whereby the metal target is immersed in ultra-pure water. The Al alloy metal nanoparticles were studied using two laser parameters namely laser exposure time and laser power. Findings: The above mentioned method identified can generate the metal nanoparticles. The longer laser exposure time with higher power contribute higher weight loss of the Al metal. The new incoming black dots were detected on the surface of Al alloy metal samples that were shot by a laser beam. It was contributed to the formation of instabilities plasma on the metal surface towards Al nanostructures ejection. The average weight of a mass loss of Al alloy increases with the exposure time of laser shot was increases. It was shown that average of mass loss of Al metal alloy increased dramatically from the 30 second to 60 second at laser power of 1 watt. However, the higher ablation condition of 3 watt for 180s forms the bigger particle size of 900 nm and more. Conclusion/Application: At the condition of 3 watts for 30s, smaller particles size ranging of 76-1281 nm has been formed. The higher power and exposure time subsequently increase the size and homogeneity.

This study investigated the effect of Swiss Ball stabilisation exercise on deep and superficial cervical muscle and pain with chronic neck pain. Thirty subjects with chronic neck pain were randomly divided into the Swiss Ball Stabilisation Exercise Group (n=10, SBEG), Craniocervical Flexion Exercise Group (n=10, CFEG), and Conservative Therapy Group (n=10, CTG). All patients performed 40-50 minutes a day, thrice a week for 8 weeks. The CSA (Cross-Sectional Area) of neck muscles, longuscolli, longuscapitis, Anterior scalene and Upper trapezius, was measured using functional MRI and VAS and NDI obtained from the subjects was analyzed. After 8-weeks intervention, two groups showed the significant improvement in CSA of deep and superficial muscles; CSA change of SBEG was the most significant among groups compared with CFEG and CTG (P<.001). Swiss Ball stabilisation exercise is likely to widen the CSA of deep and superficial muscles in patient with chronic neck pain, and can be an efficacious therapeutic method that can decrease numerical value of VAS and NDI.
93 Comparative Carbon Dioxide Capture from Air between Chlorella vulgaris and Chlorella sorokiniana. , Noor Shazleen Sharfadeen, Muhammad Syukri Abd Rahaman, Siti Rozaimah Sheikh Abdullah and Zuraifah Minhat.
Background/Objectives: In this research, the potential of a commercial microalgae species namely, Chlorella vulgaris and a native microalgae species isolated from a palm oil mill effluent, Chlorella sorokiniana to capture carbon dioxide from the air was investigated. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Both of the species were cultured in Bold Basal Medium (BBM) at three different concentrations denoted as 1.0 BBM, 2.0 BBM and 3.0 BBM. Among the parameters that were analyzed included pH value, optical density, specific growth rate, dry biomass and the rate of carbon dioxide gas captured by the microalgae. Findings: Different medium concentrations caused a different growth rate of C. vulgaris and C. sorokiniana. C. vulgaris favored an environment with a lower pH value ranging from pH 6.0-6.5 while the native isolated microalgae species, C. sorokiniana prefers a higher pH medium which has a range of 7.0-8.0. In addition, C. sorokiniana has a higher specific growth rate, 0.0452 h-1 in 3.0 BBM compared to C. vulgaris that only has a specific growth rate of 0.0013 h-1 in 1.0 BBM. C. vulgaris had the highest dry biomass value of 0.016 g/L in 1.0 BBM in comparison to C. sorokiniana with 2.438 g/L for the dry biomass in 3.0 BBM. It is also observed that the C. sorokiniana microalgae in 3.0 BBM has the highest potential of capturing carbon dioxide gas from air at a rate of 4.584 g/L in comparison with C. vulgaris microalgae in 2.0 BBM that only captured 0.030 g/L of carbon dioxide from air. Application/Improvements: The locally isolated microalgae have shown a vast potential as an alternative for carbon dioxide capture.

This actively reduces the thinking process and developing innovative research ideas. Applications/ Improvements: The use of search engine has resulted in thinking less and searching more when it comes to academic purpose, which also drastically reduces the analytical capability.
96 Antioxidant Activities of Solvent-extracted Fractions from Kummerowia striata (Thunb.) Schindl   , Jae-Hyeok, Lee and Jeong-Suk, Park  
During the process of screening for antioxidant effects of natural plants by measuring the radical scavenging effect on 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), Kummerowia striata (Thunb.) Schindl (Leguminosae) was found to show potent antioxidant activity. It is very plentiful plant, used for treatment of inflammation and fever in Korea. Antioxidant activities of methanol extract and its fractions were determined by DPPH free radical scavenging effects, riboflavin-originated superoxide quenching activity and xanthine-originated superoxide quenching activity assays. Among them, ethyl acetate fraction showed the most significant free radical scavenging effects on DPPH, and the potent riboflavin and xanthine-originated superoxide quenching activities. These results suggest that Kummerowia striata could be used as a functional ingredient for anti-oxidation, anti-aging and anti-inflammation.

100 Does the US Need an Educational Reform for Economic Growth?   , Young-Bae Kim and Chosee Jung  
The paper empirically investigates the effect of education on economic growth of local regions with standard growth regression models using a set of cross-sectional data for sub-state counties of 50 US states. The findings suggest the existence of income convergence among US counties, a strong growth-enhancing effect of human capital accumulation measured by schooling years, a negative effect of the unemployment rate and a positive effect of the net migration rate on the growth rate. In contrast, government expenditure on education appears to have a negative association with growth, suggesting the ineffectiveness of US education policies. Furthermore, the result indicates possible failures of secondary education in the US regions.
101 A Study on College Students’ Knowledge and Educational Experience about Basic Life Support   , Shinhong Min  
Along with consistent economic development and rapid industrialization, occurrences of emergency patients have increased rapidly due to industrial disasters and cardiovascular diseases. When we face the occurrence of emergency patient, the best care is for the first responder to practice the CPR early before the emergency staffs arrive at the cardiac arrest spot. Thus, learning to practice proper emergency measures is important and required for the sake of me and others. The results in this study show the level of college students’ knowledge, experience, and learning of CPR and this will be a basic data for the development of the CPR-related curriculum. Further, this will contribute to the establishment of the CPR-related education program for the university policy. We carried out the survey from 8th of April, 2013 to 30th of April 2013. The participating subjects in the survey were 434 college students in provinces of Seoul, Gyeonggi and Chungnam. Data analysis is performed with the measures of percentage, average, and standard deviation and the T-test and the ANOVA are applied to the analysis using the SPSS program (version 18.0). Results of this study are as follows. 1. The knowledge level of the CPR is very low, making up an average 3.56 (SD=1.37) points out of the total 6 points. 2. The ratio of students not learning the CPR is 48.8%. 3. Among the students who know the CPR, 69.1% of students learned it at the school. Education method with theory and practice has a ratio of 68% and 77% of the students learned CPR by demonstration with dummy. Average education time is 2.8 hours. 4. 98.2% of the students feel the necessity of CPR education and 31.8% among them want to learn CPR in the time of middle school. Educational institutions of school and Korean Association of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation are mostly wished. 5. The most frequent case which the students witnessed practicing of CPR is the TV (74%) and the next is the movie (37%). In conclusion, the college students have low knowledge levels of CPR but have high will of participation and understanding of its necessity. Thus, when CPR education is provided appropriately to the college students, it is expected to have high education effects.

Background/Objectives: Xylitol production through chemical processes pathway involves high energy usage and ­production cost. Alternative method via microbial biotransformation and biocatalyst offer more sustainable and environmental friendly feedstock to be used for xylitol production. Methods: Production of xylitol by Aspergillus niger PY11 using different conditions on 2 carbon source, glucose and xylose, were done for the development of this research. Batch fermentation of A. niger PY11 was conducted for 4 days or 96 hours in temperature set at 30ºC and agitation speed of 200 rpm. Samples were taken at 12 hours interval, filtered and analyzed for cell biomass, remaining sugar and D-xylitol concentration. The production of biomass and xylitol was monitored through dry-mass weight of mycelium and by HPLC, respectively. Findings: From the results of the utilization of single carbon source, fermentation of D-xylose ­produced the highest xylitol yield, which was 0.101 g xylitol/g D-xylose consumed, with the xylitol titre of 1.139 g/l was obtained ­(equivalent to 0.482 g xylitol/ g biomass). However, the highest cell growth was observed when fermentation were ­conducted using a mixture of D-xylose and D-glucose at the ratio of 3:1, which resulted the biomass yield of 0.239 g biomass/g D-xylose (equivalent to 0.211 g xylitol/g biomass). Total amount of 44.94% of added D-xylose was consumed during the fermentation. Applications/Improvements: This paper shown that the addition of glucose had resulted higher biomass growth of A.nigerPY11, thus subsequently increased the bioconversion of xylose to xylitol.

This study was conducted to determine the herbs extract yields and activities on antioxidant and cytotoxicity properties. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Cold maceration and soxhlet were the extraction methods employed and water, ethanol and 50% ethanol (v/v) were chosen as solvents. Findings: The results showed 50% ethanol (v/v) was the best solvent for all three herbs in terms of extraction yield. For cold maceration, the extract yields were 14.3%, 17.4% and 7.6% for P. niruri, O. stamineus and L. pumila, respectively. Whilst for soxhlet method, the same trend was observed where 50% ethanol (v/v) gave the highest extract yield of 21.2%, 14.3% and 6.8% for P. niruri, O. stamineus and L. pumila, respectively. Total phenolic content and antioxidant capacity were also highest using 50% ethanol and soxhlet method for all herbs. Application/Improvements: This shows that the food-grade solvents at a certain concentration are suitable for the best extraction of selected herbs.
105 A Study on the Differences between Spiritual Wellbeing and Sexual Attitude Considering the Type of University   , Shinhong Min and Soonyoung Yun  
This study focuses on the provision of baseline data for the intervention programs of building proper sexual attitudes through understanding of the differences between spiritual wellbeing and sexual attitudes of healthcare department students from Christian university and non-Christian university. The survey was carried with questionnaire to the junior and senior students from Christian university and non-Christian university located in the C and D province during period between 24th of March, 2014 and 11th of April, 2014. The results are as follows. Students from Christian university show higher spiritual wellbeing, which is statistically significant (t=5.920, p=0.001). Also, in views of sexual attitude, Christian university students have more affirmative awareness. Except ambivalent sexual values from questionnaire subcategories, they showed statistically significant differences in all other subcategories of sexual opinion, sexual behavior, virginity, and pornographic media. When we examine the correlation of subcategory between spiritual wellbeing and sexual attitude, religious wellness is found to be correlated with existential wellness, sexual opinion, sexual behavior, virginity, ambivalent sexual values, and pornographic media. For the case of existential wellness, it is correlated with religious wellness, sexual opinion, virginity, and pornographic media. Therefore, in the development of intervention program to reduce sex-related problematic behavior, it is required to include contents of spiritual wellbeing improvement for university students to have appropriate sexual attitude.
106 A Study on the Determinants of the Intention of Execution for Management Consulting: Focusing on the Psychological Factors of Middle Managers in Firms   , Tea-Suk Jeoung, Yen-Yoo You and Kwan-Sik Na  
The purpose of this study is to clarify what psychological factors influence the perception of management consulting by middle managers working at general firms in Korea. To this end, the psychological factors of middle managers were categorized into personal factors and organizational factors. Personal factors were then classified into innovative activities, job satisfaction, and achievement needs, and organizational factors were classified into job security and organizational loyalty. Then, the impacts of the perception of management consulting, which is a dependent variable, were examined in terms of the intention of execution for management consulting. For reference, this study examined the differences in personal factors, organizational factors, and mean difference in the perception of management consulting according to socio-demographic factors. The factor of middle level managers regarding the intention of execution for management consulting had a positive impact on achievement needs and a negative impact on innovative activities. It was found that there were no impacts on other factors such as job satisfaction, job security, and organizational loyalty. Moreover, management consulting experience regarding the awareness of execution for management consulting turned out to have no moderating effect. In addition, the variables that had a significant mean difference in the perception of management consulting by middle level managers, according to demographic characteristics, were firm size and income.

Due to rapid growth in the multiuser communication on the cloud infrastructure, the reliability of the data sets is growing rapidly. Methods/Statistical Analysis: We proposed three planning mechanism in this paper, they are anonymity, multiple receiver and conditional sharing. Using anonymity can hide the sender and receiver information details. In multiple receiver, by giving category the receiver can access the sender data before that admin check the condition to share the data. If the authorized receiver means the admin can allow the receiver to access the data. In this paper, we used Data Encryption Standard (DES) and Message Digest (MD5) algorithm for encrypting the data and also used Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for Re-encrypt the data for high security. Findings: By implementing the above algorithms the data from Hadoop Data File System (HDFS) can be retrieved faster and hence, the time required for the proposed system to fetch the data is reduced compared to the existing system. Application/Improvements: The proposed system has been tested only for small dataset and can be used to analyze large datasets. The proposed system can be used to many real-world applications, such as secure email ­forwarding, electronic encrypted data sharing, where both anonymity and flexible encrypted data sharing are needed.

In addition to this, nursing students should be encouraged to use fall risk tools so as to assess potential fall risk for in-patients during practice at hospitals.
110 Analysis of Elementary Students’ ICT Literacy and their Self-Evaluation According to their Residential Environments   , SeungJin Lee, JaMee Kim and WonGyu Lee  
With ICT advancement leading to the development of various computing technologies, emphasis is being placed on ICT literacy as an essential ability that students must acquire. To evaluate this, studies have been conducted to verify whether there are any differences in ICT utilisation and abilities between the genders and, if so, to what degree. However, there has not been any verification of the relationship between ICT literacy and the students’ surrounding environment nor of their own self-recognition. Accordingly, this study was conducted targeting 1,176 elementary school students in Korea with a goal to analyse differences in students’ individual abilities according to their residential environments. The results indicated that there was no difference in ICT literacy levels between genders and that evaluation scores increased as the quality of students’ residential environment was higher. Through this study, it was observed that students’ ICT literacy levels can vary according to their surrounding environment and that improvedself-recognition can affect students’ abilities to use ICT. This study holds significance in that it discovered differences in students’ ICT literacy levels according to region, rather than by gender.

113 Feedback Linearization for Input-saturation Nonlinear System Based on T-S Fuzzy Model   , Wang Fa-guang(王法广)  , Wang Hong-mei(王洪梅) , Park Seung-kyu , Wang Xue-song(王雪松)  , Sanghyuk Lee  
Considering input saturation problem of nonlinear system, a linearized model of multi-inputs nonlinear system is proposed in this paper. The final linear model has prescribed poles and has the same convergence nearby the designed equilibrium points. After this, the linear control theorem can be applied. During the calculation of linearization, T-S (Takagi Sugeno) fuzzy model and pole placement method were utilized. Pole placement just was applied only once for the final model comparing the traditional case where it was designed for every fuzzy rule. This means fewer LMIs (linear matrix inequality) will be needed and its solution will be guaranteed as much as possible. In this paper, nonlinear system will be transferred to T-S fuzzy model first. Note that the T-S fuzzy model is still nonlinear. Then, by employing a series of transfer matrix, nonlinear T-S fuzzy model will be transferred into a nearly linear form accompanied with only one nonlinear part. Finally, by designing a proper controller, linear pole placement method is used and the designed linearization controller gains can be calculated out with LMIs.
114 Effect of Sodium Hydroxide Pretreatment on Rice Straw Composition. , Shuhaida Harun and Soh Kwee Geok.
Background/Objectives: Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) pretreatment was used to determine the effect of pretreatment on chemical composition of pretreated rice straw. The experiment was designed to measure the effects in terms of NaOH concentration and pretreatment time mainly on the total carbohydrate content (TOC) and lignin content of pretreated rice straw. Methods/Statistical analysis: Compositional characterization was performed based on the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) laboratory analysis protocols. Rice straw obtained from Sekinchan, Selangor Malaysia was dried to reduce the moisture content (<15%) and ground to 2 mm particle size. Rice straw was pretreated with different concentration of NaOH (2%w/v, 6%w/v and 12%w/v) and pretreatment time of 1 and 3 hours, while temperature was kept constant at 55°C. Findings: Rice straw sample pretreated with 12%w/v NaOH for 1 hour gave the highest glucan content, an increase of 85.6% from the native untreated rice straw. This condition also yielded the best delignification effect which reduced the lignin composition up to 79.6%, while sample pretreated with 2%w/v for 3 hours gave the highest composition on total carbohydrate content of 79.16% for which included glucan, xylan and arabinan. Hence, the pretreatment condition of 2%w/v NaOH concentration for 3 hours was the best condition in order to obtain high total carbohydrate content while severe pretreatment condition of 12%w/v NaOH concentration for 1 hours was best to give the delignification effect to the rice straw. Application/Improvements: The results from this work can be used for further evaluation of pretreated rice straw using NAOH particularly for enzymatic hydrolysis.

Background/Objectives: Cellulase is an important enzyme used in the pulp and paper industries, detergent, textile and food. This work reports on the production of cellulose from white-rot fungi Pycnoporussanguineus. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The fermentation of P. sanguineus was carried out using three different carbon sources that are cellulose, α-cellulose and carboxymethylcellulose to choose the most suitable carbon source for growth and enzymes production by P. sanguineus. The enzyme kinetics parameters (Km and Vmax) and the effect of metal ions on the cellulase enzyme activity were studied. The effects of some metal ions on the enzymes activity were also studied. Findings: The comparison of cellulase enzyme produced from both white rot fungi were done within 5 days of the fermentation time. The comparison was carried out in terms of growth rate of both fungus and the activity of FPase enzyme produced. Results showed that the FPase produced by P. sanguineus was six times higher than S. commune. The highest activity of FPase (18.00 U.mL-1), CMCase (7.28 U.mL-1) and EXOase (5.87 U.mL-1) was obtained on the fourth day of fermentation by P. sanguineus when α-cellulose was used as the carbon source. Then, α-cellulose was selected as the carbon source for the production of cellulase from P. sanguineus. The Vmax (1.54 µmol.h-1) and Km (0.5 mM) values of the cellulase enzyme using filter paper as the substrate were determined using Line weaver-Burk plot. The addition of Mg2+ ions and Ca2+ ions increases the cellulase activity significantly. Application/Improvements: The addition of Mg2+ ions at concentration of 7mM and Ca2+ ions at 5mM concentration increases cellulase activity up to 19.2% and 16.2% respectively.

118 System Call Analysis of Android Malware Families.  , Sapna Malik and Kiran Khatter.
Background/Objectives: Now a days, Android Malware is coded so wisely that it has become very difficult to detect them. The static analysis of malicious code is not enough for detection of malware as this malware hides its method call in encrypted form or it can install the method at runtime. The system call tracing is an effective dynamic analysis technique for detecting malware as it can analyze the malware at the run time. Moreover, this technique does not require the application code for malware detection. Thus, this can detect that android malware also which are difficult to detect with static analysis of code. As Android was launched in 2008, so there were fewer studies available regarding the behavior of Android Malware Families and their characteristics. The aim of this work is to explore the behavior of 10 popular Android Malware Families focused on System Call Pattern of these families. Methods/Statistical Analysis: For this purpose, the authors have extracted the system call trace of 345 malicious applications from 10 Android Malware Families named FakeInstaller, Opfake, Plankton, DroidKungFu, BaseBridge, Iconosys, Kmin, Adrd and Gappusin using strace android tool and compared it with the system calls pattern of 300 Benign Applications to justify the behavior of malicious application. Findings: During the experiment, it is observed that the malicious applications invoke some system calls more frequently than benign applications. Different Android malware invokes the different set of system calls with different frequency. Applications/Improvements: This analysis can prove helpful in designing intrusion-detection systems for an android mobile device with more accuracy

126 A Synchronization System for an Educational Content Viewer   , Sun-Ock Kwon , Mihye Kim and Kwan-Hee Yoo  
With an increasing number of users having more than one smart device, an environment for delivering the same content through multiple devices has been established via wired and wireless network connections. Consequently, online education services that have provided content on one device screen by dividing it into multi pieces have changed to providing it through more than one smart device using a synchronization system embedded in a content viewer application or an e-book reader. However, most existing content viewers do not support content synchronization. Some do support it, but are platform-dependent. To address these shortcomings, we propose a synchronization system embedded in an educational content viewer that supports a wide range of content types and is platform-independent. To examine the performance of the proposed synchronization system, we conducted experiments on processing time for synchronization by applying it with different network connection types and between smart devices with different operating systems (OSs). The synchronization system performed within a reasonable time on wireless (Wi-Fi) and long-term evolution (LTE) networks, and most of the content, except three dimensional (3D) objects, synchronized in real-time regardless of OS type.
127 A Performance Model for FMCG Sector Employees Using Linguistic Fuzzy Multi Criteria Group Decision Making. , Abhyankar Minal and Metkewar Pravin.
Objectives: To propose a model for ranking the performance of the employees of FMCG sector. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this paper, authors have used Min Max Method. The data for 100 employees have been generated for identifying the performance of employees through linguistic theory model. The main factors which affect the performance of the employee can be mainly categorized in four sections: job performance, job capacities, job behavior and personal. For each performance criterion the linguistic values has been assigned. Then the relative importance of linguistic variables is calculated. Findings: The major step in the decision making process is to establish a fuzzy association relation between a precise category and every employee’s performance for that group. Considering the significance allocated to each criterion set the highest value for that grouping, the association relation is established by taking the complement of the category set importance. This complement produces a smallest performance value assigned to all employees as per the category. At the end, combined the performances of the employee across all groups in order to achieve a complete assessment by applying the min function to the set. Author got the results that 80 employees needed training in job performance as they have overall rating 0.2; whereas 16 employees needed training in job capacities as they have overall rating 0.40 and 4 employees can be promoted as they have overall rating 0.41 which is highest. Applications/Improvements: The proposed approach of fuzzy evaluation methodology can be used for other sectors like evaluation of students, evaluation of product or quality assessment of software, teacher or supplier evaluation with small modifications.

129 Perception of Happiness among Health-related University Students: Q Methodological Approach   , Yong-Suk Kim  
Background/Objectives: Happiness is one of the most important values in life. The purpose of this study is to examine perception types of health-related university students on happiness. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A distribution chart of the Q samples was prepared according to the principle of the Q methodology, that is, 34 statements selected by subjects using the Q samples were classified on a 9-point scale. A data analysis was conducted by using the PC-QUANL program. Results: Three types of perception of happiness were identified in the subjects: ‘Comfort’ (15 persons), ‘Self-Contentment’ (10 persons) and ‘Acknowledgement’ (13 persons). The type 1 of this research is the type that explains the most the attitudes of the health-related university students towards happiness and they feel happiness the most when their body and mind are comfortable. The type 2 is the self-contentment type. Although the subjects who belong to this group give importance to looks and their love with opposite works as an important element of happiness, they show an attitude that they don’t care much about getting acknowledged by others. The type 3 is an acknowledgement type and the subjects of this group feel the happiest when they receive recognition or gift from others and when they accomplish what others find difficult to do. Conclusion/Application: Perception on happiness of health-related university students varies depending on individual backgrounds and subjective dispositions, measures to improve happiness with various activities are needed

134 An Effective Approach for Minimizing Energy Consumption in WSN. , Rakesh Kumar , Gurinder Singh and Gurjot Singh Gaba.
Wireless Sensor Networks finds it difficult to transfer equal amount of data through all nodes, and in minimizing the level of energy consumption during transmission of data. This paper is an improvement to LEACH protocol; suggested to increase the overall lifespan of the network. Formation of clusters is based upon distance of nodes from base station, number of neighbor nodes and distance among neighbor nodes. The cluster heads are selected on the basis of nodes holding maximum energy. We have proposed the concept of selecting the master cluster head from the elected cluster heads based on the strength of energy that CH nodes have and the distance from the Base station. Further, using this concept, the fused data from master CH are forwarded to the sink node. Proposed work reduces the frequency and length of data exchanged between the CHs and the Base station. Simulation results revealed that the proposed method reduces the consumption of energy by 46.85 percent and increases the lifespan of the network efficiently. The parameters for comparison are First Node Dead and Half Node Alive.
135 Modulation of Oral Epithelial Cell Properties by Insulin   , Hwa-Kyung Son , Hye-Sook Choi and Jeong-Ran Park  
The cell culture environment regulates epithelial cell properties by changing a number of signaling pathways and ­intercellular interactions among different cell types. Culture medium contains many components that stimulate cell phenotypic changes. Many studies have reported modulating cells by altering the culture environment. Changes in culture conditions can induce the epithelial to mesenchymal transition and the mesenchymal to epithelial transition. Therefore, microenvironmental interactions between the culture medium and cells entail cytoskeletal remodeling. We studied the characteristics of oral epithelial cells according to insulin concentration, which is used as a cell culture supplement because it delays apoptosis and promotes proliferation. A high insulin concentration turned fibroblastic epithelial cells into a cobblestone-like morphology, shortened cell-to-cell distance, and contributed to increase cell growth. These results ­provide data on the effect of insulin in oral epithelial cells under in vitro culture conditions.
136 A Study on Performances of Passenger Vehicles with Suspension Systems   , Hwan Il Kang and Hwan Soo Kang  
When the passenger vehicle runs on an off-road, the vertical displacement occurs. This vertical displacement variation affects settling time and some oscillations for passengers on the vehicle. The passenger vehicle is simulated with a quarter car system. We measure the vertical peak displacement and settling time using the quarter simulation model using the road profile with semicircular bump stop. The active suspension system with specific feedback control has better performances for the settling time and the peak value of the transient response than the passive suspension system has.

We focus on the hit probability which is one of the fire power performances. The combat vehicle is simulated with a quarter car system. We measure the vertical displacement using the quarter simulation model. The passive suspension system and the active suspension system with the use of the linear state feedback system are considered. The active suspension system with the feedback control has better performances for the hit probability than the passive suspension system has.
138 An Effective Approach for Minimizing Energy Consumption in WSN. , Rakesh Kumar , Gurinder Singh and Gurjot Singh Gaba.
Wireless Sensor Networks finds it difficult to transfer equal amount of data through all nodes, and in minimizing the level of energy consumption during transmission of data. This paper is an improvement to LEACH protocol; suggested to increase the overall lifespan of the network. Formation of clusters is based upon distance of nodes from base station, number of neighbor nodes and distance among neighbor nodes. The cluster heads are selected on the basis of nodes holding maximum energy. We have proposed the concept of selecting the master cluster head from the elected cluster heads based on the strength of energy that CH nodes have and the distance from the Base station. Further, using this concept, the fused data from master CH are forwarded to the sink node. Proposed work reduces the frequency and length of data exchanged between the CHs and the Base station. Simulation results revealed that the proposed method reduces the consumption of energy by 46.85 percent and increases the lifespan of the network efficiently. The parameters for comparison are First Node Dead and Half Node Alive.
139 Design and Simulation of Hierarchical Control of Two Continuous Stirred Tank Heater in Series. , Normah Abdullah, Ramin Razmi , Tan Chung Chuan , Zulkifli Mohd Nopiah, Azah Mohamed and Mohd Zaki Nuawi.
Background/Objectives: The present investigation was carried out to study the application of process control hierarchy to design an optimal control system for a two continuous stirred tank heaters in series (2-CSTHs). Methods/Statistical Analysis: The optimal control strategy of the 2-CSTHs is designed in a hierarchy of three level structures which employs optimization in the real-time optimization (RTO) control level, feedback control scheme in the regulating control level and sensors, pumps and control valves in the measurement and actuation level. All these levels should be coordinated and require information transfer. The proposed optimal control system of the 2-CSTHs was simulated using MATLAB/ SIMULINK and HYSYS. Findings: The simulation results show that the PID feedback closed-loop of the 2-CSTHs for level and temperature controllers are able to achieve satisfactory performance for servo and regulating control. Simulation on the RTO algorithm also yields results which indicate that the non-derivative technique is an efficient algorithm in minimizing the square of tracking error of temperature in both tanks of the 2-CSTHs. Application/Improvements: The non-derivative algorithm has the advantage over other algorithms in the family of ISOPE algorithm for not requiring process derivatives which make it attractive for industrial applications.

141 Control of Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor using Neural Networks.  , Normah Abdullah, Tan Ching Yee , Azah Mohamed , Mohd. Marzuki Mustafa , Mohd. Haniff Osman and Abu Bakar Mohamad.
Background/Objectives: This paper presents the design of neuro controller NARMA-L2 for composition control in an isothermal Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR) by manipulating the input feed composition. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The NARMA-L2 controller design is implemented in two stages in which the first stage is system identification to model the process and the second stage is designing the process controller. For controlling the product composition in the CSTR, the neuro controller NARMA-L2 is implemented in MATLAB Simulink environment. Findings: The simulation results show the superiority of the NARMA-L2 in accurately tracking the composition set-point changes in the CSTR and control the system better as compared to that of the conventional PID. The neuro controller NARMA-L2 can handle nonlinear aspects of the CSTR by transforming its non-linear dynamic into an implicit algebraic model which can control the trajectory of the CSTR efficiently. Application/Improvements: The advantage of using the neuro controller NARMA-L2 is that it requires the minimal online computation compared to other neural network architecture for control such as model reference control and model predictive control
142 A Study on Algebraic Solutions of Trajectory Equations. , Hwan IlKang, Jae Jeong Pyun and Hyun Soo Kim 
The exact trajectory of the direct fire gun results from the standard differential equations given in (1, 2, 3, 4). Under the condition that the elevation firing angle has a very small angle, the standard differential equations may be changed into the solvable differential equations. We compare two trajectories from the exact and the solvable differential equations. For a range distance of 570m, the error between the exact and approximate trajectory is 0.0055m if there is neither crosswind nor range wind. Under the condition of existence of the range and cross-range, their error is 0.2016m for a range distance of 570m. It turns out that the derived new trajectory has a very small discrepancy compared to the exact trajectory derived from the standard differential equations.
143 Physicochemical Properties, Heavy Metal Content and Microbial Limit Test of Bedak sejuk. , Mohd Alif Afife Dzulfakar, Noorhisham Tan Kofli  and Siti Masrinda Tasirin.
Backgraound/Objectives: At present, no study has been conducted to evaluate the safety of bedak sejuk as a cosmetic product. Hence in this study, the safety evaluation of bedak sejuk which is used daily by Malaysians was investigated. Methods: Five assessment tests were studied on physicochemical properties of bedak sejuk which includes determination of pH, moisture and volatile matter, matter insoluble in water, test for solubility of colours and fineness. Heavy metal content (lead) and microbial population limit tests were also executed. Findings: Results showed that bedak sejuk complies with the cosmetic powder standard, in which the pH of bedak sejuk was at 6.0±0.3, the moisture and volatile matter was at 1.1±0.6%, matter insoluble in boiling water was 68±0.7 mg/mass, the results of colour solubility was rated colourless and presented in a normal particle distribution. For the heavy metal content, less than 3.5±0.5 parts per million of lead in the sample was observed while for the microbial population limit test, was valued at 340 CFU/mL. Application:From these results, bedak sejuk has the potential to be be marketed as loose powder in canisters or molded or compressed into cakes and inserted into mirrored compact cases, typically with an applicator, usually a pad, a puff or other implement.
144 A Survey on Collaborative Categorization using Fuzzy Logic for Improved User Suggestions. , M. Anjani and V. Vijaya Kaveri.
Background/Objectives: This paper presents a review on the usage of social tags that can be employed for recommending in social networks. It also focusses on pros and some algorithms as solutions to the problems. Recommender systems are the one used for providing information regarding the categories that belongs to the items which makes use of fuzzy clustering, in which the membership degree of the object is not available in the calculated categories. If calculated categories are available it will provide good quality recommendations to the user. Methods/Analysis: The method suggested in this work is to utilize fuzzy logic to classify the similar users from the clustered users based on their profiles and taste of viewing similar items. Fuzzy logic here plays a vital role in providing recommendation to the similar users once the classification is done. Findings: Hence, by surveying some papers on recommendation in social networking, we propose a solution by creating a dynamic system which would provision recommendations to the user to make the domain selection more effectively. The domains refers to books, movies, songs, which are purely dynamic. This methodology helps to display the most viewed item as the top most item and displays the item ratings in the webpage. The main approach used here is fuzzy logic with the detailed representation of features of objects and modeling user profiles. Applications/Improvements: This type of dynamic domain system will provide better results when compared to the conventional recommendation systems as it allows users to give comments on various products on different domains. This type of recommendation can be consumed by many social networking sites for gaining page rating and it can be further improved in future by combining the online dictionary to classify the terms used in user rating.
145 Relationship Between Factors of Disability Change and Life Satisfaction in the Physically Disabled.   , Yun-Jeong Kim and Hyun-Jung Kang 
This study identified factors that affect changes in disability status and life satisfaction, using data from the first and fifth Panel Survey of Employment for the Disabled and 2,045 survey respondents as study subjects. First, in terms of change in disability status, fixed-fixed group accounted for 52.3%, worsen-worsen group for 19.4%, worsen-fixed group for 19.2%, and fixed-worsen group for 9.1%. The subjects whose disability status remained the same had the highest share, but 28.5% of the respondents viewed their status to have worsened compared to 2008, and 9.1% responded to have even further worsening in recent years. Female disabled subjects reported a change in disability status more often than men. Lower age and higher education level corresponded to a higher percentage in the fixed-fixed group. The percentage of subjects in medium or higher level had the following factors: living in Seoul metropolitan area or in six major cities, no religion, a job, and self-reported socio-economic status. Subjects with a disability that is innate or from an accident had a higher share of the fixed-fixed group. The fixed-fixed group and worsen-fixed group had a higher life satisfaction corresponding to a higher disability grade. The most powerful variable affecting life satisfaction was a change in disability status in the fixed-fixed group.
146 A Study on a Vertical Gun Jump Parameter for Hit Probability. , Hwan Il Kang , Kang Park , Sang Yeong Choi and Hyun Soo Kim 
For the gun, the hit probability is a function of many error budgets. A selected design parameter among error budgets is assumed to be a vertical gun jump. The hit probability depends on the vertical gun jump for a given range. To satisfy a given hit probability for the given range, the vertical gun jump should be confined into the interval. At first, to obtain a vertical variance at the target, the unit partial is determined using the trajectory. The unit partial means the difference between two vertical displacements at a given range under two fire angles whose difference is the unit quantity. Using the unit partial and the variance of the vertical gun jump, we may determine the hit probability using the Polya-Williams’ formula. Finally, we may obtain the allowable interval for a given jump within which the given hit probability is satisfied.

This study investigates the relationship between servant leadership, which has recently received much attention in the field of human resource management, and the diversity of performance measures, which has been consistently emphasised in the field of management accounting. For an empirical analysis, a sample of 88 respondents from the Korean Federation of Community Credit Cooperatives was considered. According to the results, non-financial and financial measures were used more frequently under a high level of servant leadership, suggesting that the use of servant leadership can facilitate the design and use of performance measurement systems, which in turn should improve organisational performance.
151 Performance Analysis of Edge Detection Algorithms on Various Image Types. , Tamilselvi Nagasankar and B. Ankaryarkanni. 
Objective: Various edge detection algorithms are analyzed to find the best and worst performance of edge detection algorithm on various image types. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Only .tif image files are considered for the analysis. Some of the sample images in MATLAB tools and some from web are considered as source for the performance analysis. The performance of the edged image is measured using the entropy and signal noise ratio. High entropy and SNR values specified the high quality of the edged image and the low values indicated the low quality of the image. Findings: Making a deep analysis on various edge detection algorithms is really worth enough in Image processing. Here, five commonly used edge detection algorithms such as Prewitt, Sobel, Robert, Log and Canny are consider for analysis. Matrix form of grayscaled, graysliced, indexed, binary and dither binary image information are taken for the analysis. The analysis is done to find the best and worst performance of edge detection algorithm on various image types. For an image, five different edge detection algorithms applied on five different image information. Totally twenty five edged images are generated as output of an image. From the analysis, it is identified that Canny edge detection algorithm is performing better among the five algorithms. Out of the five image information, Canny algorithm on Dither binary image information yields the high entropy and SNR values. But, the Robert algorithm with indexed image information generates the very low entropy with low SNR values. Applications/Improvements: Edge detection is an important and basic operation to be completed for any image processing activities, image analysis, pattern recognition on various images such as satellite images, medical images etc.,
152 Design of Short-term Forecasting Model of Distributed Generation Power for Solar Power Generation.  , Yoon-Su Jeong , Seung-Hee Lee, Kun-Hee Han , Duchwan Ryu , Yoonsung Jung 
Background/Objectives: For efficient PhotoVoltaic (PV) power generation, computing and information technologies are increasingly used in irradiance forecasting and correction. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Today the majority of PV modules are used for grid-connected power generation, so solar generation forecasting that predicts available PV output ahead is essential for integrating PV resources into electricity grids. This paper proposes a short-term solar power forecasting system that employs Neural Network (NN) models to forecast irradiance and PV power. Results: The proposed system uses the weather observations of a ground weather station, the medium-term weather forecasts of a physical model, and the short-term weather forecasts of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model as input. To increase prediction accuracy, the proposed system performs forecast corrections and determines the correction coefficients based on the characteristics and temperature of PV modules. The proposed system also analyzes the inclination angle of PV modules to predict PV power outputs. Conclusion/Application: In the future, the proposed forecasting system for solar power generation resources will be further refined and run in real environments.

155 Does Health Promotion Climate Positively Impact Performance?.  , Yunsuk Cha 
Despite the greater importance companies place on employee health, only a few studies have explored the impact of health promotion in the workplace on individual and team performance. Drawing on the broaden-and-build, it was hypothesised that organisations’ health promotion climate influences individuals’ performance. Data were collected from 495 employees on 81 teams in 11 Korean companies. In this study, I conducted HLM to understand the direct relationship between health promotion climate and perceived performance of employees into the organisation. On the other hands, to control some variables which can directly and/or indirectly impact on perceived performance, I controlled leadership, self-efficacy, work-family facilitation and family-work facilitation. This study supports the idea that there is a positive relationship between health promotion climate and perceived performance of employees. The question of great workplace and performance impacts individual performance has been a topic of discussion for a long time. Here, I empirically showed the positive relationship between great workplace and individual performance. In the past, few companies supported health promotion programs of their employees in terms of increasing employee health and performance as well. However, many companies do not support this kind of approaches to increase individual performance, because it looks another cost. Taking into account the new finding of this study, positive relationship between health promotion climate and individual performance, it will be more valuable management perspectives in terms of individual performance.
156 Optimal Design of Fused Chopper based Standalone Hybrid Wind Solar System. , P. Vinoth Kumar, A. Suresh and M. R. Rashmi.
Objective: The target of this paper is to implement an economical chopper and electrical converter for the hybrid windsolar system. Method: a replacement topology of a mix of CUK and SEPIC convertor is used rather than a private DC/DC convertor. The motor load is provided by victimization the two diodes that connects each wind and solar energy singly or along depending on accessibility. With the improved management in DC/DC convertor and within the electrical converter that associated with the auxiliary circuit in accumulation by the closed-loop system PI controller a more robust control is achieved. Findings: The fused chopper replaced the separate solar and wind choppers and rather than typical electrical converter the novel pulse width modulated electrical converter used supplied with a correct pulse width modulation (PWM) control using 3 equal reference signals. The closed-loop system management is achieved with the digital PI controller and MPPT draws the maximum power from the solar that improves the response with the fast raise in load. The system is validated with MATLAB/Simulink and therefore the output voltage of fused chopper for various solar irradiance and wind speed are tabulated. The output voltage of electrical converter and therefore the motor characteristics are analyzed. Applications/Improvements: For standalone applications within the agriculture water pumping the requirement will satisfy with the hybrid wind solar system.

Applications/Improvements: Usable for every firm where employees have PA. In Organizations today, Human resource and performance appraisal has become very crucial. This is significant from the perception of both the management and the employees. The mechanism of measuring the performance appraisal has also evolved over a period. Recently there are multiple factors and parameters which are taken for measuring the performance appraisal of an individual employee. This complete process is very challenging for both, the employer and the employee. The employer i.e. the organization comes up with different mechanisms and keeps abreast with changing scenarios in order to be competitive in the industry. It is the employees who face the major difficulties in understanding and deciding what to address in their
159 Aging Mentors in the Changing Organizational Odyssey: An Analysis.  , Jaya Chitransh and Shailja Agarwal.
Background/Objectives: As a person advances in age his/her thinking also matures and as a result he/she makes a mature mentor. The present piece of empirical research is an endeavor into exploring the older mentors’ perception about mentorship. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The sample comprised of 260 managers, in the age range of 30 to 50 years, working in public as well as private sector organizations. ‘A Checklist of Mentorship Perceptions’ was used with them. The responses for the questionnaire were obtained from managers who were also assigned the role of mentors in the organizational formal mentorship programs. The sampling was convenience based. The data were analyzed with the help of descriptive statistics, cross-tabulations and chi-squares. Findings: The older the mentors become, the greater is found their belief that sharing of success and failure-stories and providing the mentees with the ethical guidelines is essential for successful mentoring to take place. The older mentors perceive personal experience-sharing and counseling important for mentoring. They believe that ‘mentee competence’ is the issue which is handled by mentors. The perceived frequency of mentorship meetings, is observed to be ‘once a month’. They believe that attitude, interpersonal skill and emotional maturity of mentees are the skills to be developed by them. The existing body of mentoring research provides a great deal of knowledge about the importance of mentoring, relevant structural factors surrounding mentoring relationships and characteristics of mentors and protegees (Fagenson, 1992; Ragins and Scandura, 1994; Scandura and Ragins, 1993). It has mostly dealt with the mentees’ perspective. There is difference in frequency of interaction, organizational level of mentors and proteges and formality of the relationship (Finkelstein, Allen and Rhoton, 2003) which is studied in detail. The present study focuses on the ‘mentor’s perspective’ and the issue of ‘age of mentor’ in mentoring relationships. Applications/ Improvements: By managing an aging workforce organizations can utilize the vast experience, unfathomed potential and mature decision-making lying untapped with this workforce. This will add a Midas touch to the organization and its business.

Background/Objectives: The purposes of this study were to explore the type and frequency of material health status and behaviors in immigrant women and to examine factors affecting maternal health outcomes. Methods/Statistical analysis: This cross-sectional study was conducted with a sample of 106 female marriage immigrants. A well-developed questionnaire was used to measure health-related needs and behaviors and socio-demographic data. The data collection was conducted by face-to-face interview and translators were used when needed. Results: The main findings showed that 33% of participants used birth control methods, 54% performed exclusive breastfeeding for six months, 78% received prenatal care, 67% received postpartum care, 19% had at least one health problem associated with pregnancy, and 21% experienced natural or induced abortion. These indicate that the immigrant participants tend to have somewhat different health problems and behaviors as compared with the general Korean female population. Furthermore, determining factors associated with maternal health outcomes were age, original nationality, employment status, communication experiences with husband and parents-in-law, knowledge about public health center services, and needs for childrearing services in public health centers. Conclusion/Application: Developing culture-specific strategies to improve maternal health outcomes and to communicate effectively with their families is necessary to increase the accessibility of public health services in female marriage immigrants.
161 Applying Numerical Indicators of Absorbance Spectrum to Evaluating Color of Flower Petals , Vladimir Koldaev , Artem Manyakhin, Olga Zorikova Svetlana Railko  and Alexander Kolyada.
Background/Objectives: The study deals with spectral photometry of extracts from flower petals. The objective is to apply numerical indicators at turning points of absorbance spectrum contours to identify the colors. Methods: Absorbance spectra of ethanol extracts from red, white and yellow flowers of 15 breeds of plants belonging to 8 genera have been registered by digital spectrophotometer in ultraviolet and in visible light range. The obtained spectra were processed by the proprietary computer program. Student’s t-test was applied for statistical data processing. Findings: Wavelength, absorbency, the values of the first-order derivatives at maximum points, at turning points, at the steps of the absorption band contour and the absorption intensity values have been identified for each registered spectrum. Absorbance spectra of the analyzed extracts from petals of the flowers belonging to the same genus and to different genera with various coloring have been found plausibly and considerably different in terms of their numerical indicators. The most significant differences have been identified in such parameters as wavelength, absorbency at turning points and the values of the first-order derivatives at the step points of the absorbance spectra in the extracts from red flower petals, and in maximum wavelengths and absorption intensity in cases with white and yellow flower petals. The sets of the numerical indicators, grouped at the turning points of the absorbance spectrum contours, are individually specific for the flower petals of each plant genus. Applications/Improvements: The absorbance spectrum numerical indicators of petal extracts can serve as a generalized distinguishing taxonomic attribute to be employed in floriculture for certification of the newly created flowering plants

Real number, percentage, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson’s Correlation, and hierarchical multiple regression analysis was analysed using SPSS program. Results: A significant correlation was found among self-care capacity and social support (family members (r =.345, p<.001), friends (r =.382, p<.001), and medical staff (r =.426, p<.001)) for chronic mental patients. Previous researches showed that supports from family, friends, and medical staff had positive influence on self-care capacity and also this study shows similar results (Adj R2 =.229, F = 30.842, p<.001). It was found that the higher social support for chronic mental patients increased, the higher self-care capacity increased. Since chronic mental patients are separated from their families during hospitalisation, enhancing support of medical staff and friends as well as family members can be one of the methods to increase self-care capacity. Conclusion: To enhance the self-care capacity of chronic mental patients, various social supporting systems should be established to help them live an independent life along with the support from family members and medical staff.
163 Landslide Prediction with Rainfall Analysis using Support Vector Machine. , Neenu Rachel and M. Lakshmi.
Objective: The paper aims in presenting a prediction model by using Support Vector Machine (SVM) technique which is meant to possess a strong capability to predict landslides by forecasting rainfall dataset using BigData concept. Methods: The dataset has been taken for the Cherapunjee region which receives the highest intensity of rainfall in India. The aim is to predict the landslide occurrence and classify the risk level associated with the landslide. To improve the reliability in landslide prediction, the proposed model uses pre-processing for removing null values in the dataset. After getting the pre-processed dataset, it will apply normalization, then SVM training and finally the Testing process. Thus the Support Vector Machine concept proved to exhibit a large degree of flexibility in handling tasks of varied complexities because of the non-linear boundary functions. Findings: The study concludes that SVM proved to be an efficient technique to forecast the landslides by predicting the rainfall in advance. The comparative results of SVM in regard with Artificial Neural Networks were proven. The study has been done specifically for Cherrapunjee region and can be implemented for any landslide prone area. Novelty/Improvement: Researchers worldwide are having a great pace to develop early prediction mechanisms for natural hazards. The study uses Radial Basis Function as an initial parameter for predicting the risk level classification of landslide. The novelty is in providing an initial selection of the kernel parameter in order to save the time on finding the best parameters.

Adolescents in middle and high class got more internal developmental assets than adolescents in low class. Adolescents in high class had more external developmental assets than adolescents in low and middle class. Adolescents in high class feel more gratitude and happier than adolescents in low and middle class. The model fit indices suggested that the hypothesised model adequately fit the data (χ2 = 11.71, df = 1, p = .01, CFI = 1.00, TLI = .96, RMSEA = .08). The developmental assets of adolescents directly affected happiness and also influenced happiness indirectly through gratitude. Conclusion: The findings from this study demonstrated the importance of gratitude a mediating factor increasing the happiness of adolescents.
171 Slicing+: An Efficient Privacy Preserving Data Publishing. , M. Nithya and T. Sheela.
Objectives: Privacy and accuracy are always trade off factors in the field of data publishing. Ideally both the factors are considered critical for data handling. Privacy loss and accuracy loss need to be maintained low as possible for an efficient data handling system. Authors have come up with various data publishing techniques aiming to achieve balance between these 2 factors. Generalization, Bucketization and Slicing are well known techniques among the list. Unfortunately they have their own limitation in handling privacy and accuracy. Generalization suffers in handling high dimensional data thus experiencing higher utility loss. Bucketization lacks data privacy where parting sensitive and quasi identifier attributes is a challenge. Slicing on the other hand though offers better privacy and accuracy, there is always scope to improve data correlation aiming in reducing utility loss. This paper explains a new technique called Slicing+ which handles privacy and accuracy factors effectively. This new Slicing+ technique looks promising as it offers flexibility for data publisher to decide on how the data need to be published. Data publisher can tune the Slicing+ technique to get data published with better privacy than accuracy or the other way. Algorithms for the two cases are derived and realized using Orange tool. This paper explains analysis done for the first bucket tuples. As an improvement aspect, similar analysis can be done for other buckets and all the bucket tuples merged and reconstructed for complete analysis. This analysis is applied in the medical records. This hybrid slicing technique is rated against Privacy loss and Utility gain factors. Experimental results are analyzed to justify the performance of Slicing+ technique

175 Reliable and Authenticated Rumor Riding Protocol for Unstructured Peer-to-Peer Network. , Mary Subaja Christo and S. Meenakshi.
Objectives: Due to the distributed network topology of peer-to-peer network, there are high possibilities for the malicious node, thereby making security a very important criterion in managing the network performance. Methods: Security in the network is ensured by validation using Rumor Recovery (RR) protocol. Trust table verification method guarentees the validity of initiator node and sower node validity. In this method, the initiator node sends its query message to the responder node according to the rumor generation and recovery phase and query issuance phase of the RR protocol. Responder node validation process is used for saving responding nodes from attacks. Findings: In this paper, we mainly concentrate on the detection and elimination of initiator node attack, replay attack, and sower attack. The performance metrics considered for evalution are delay, delivery ratio and throughput. Simulation results show that the proposed Trusted Rumor Riding (TRR) protocol. 1. Out performs RR protocol by 34% in terms of delay, 1% in terms of delivery ratio and 17% in terms of throughput while detecting and eliminating the initiator attack; 2. Out performs RR by 98% in terms of delay, 41% in terms of delivery ratio and 19% in terms of throughput while detecting and eliminating the replay attack; and 3. Out performs RR by 95% in terms of delay, 9% in terms of delivery ratio and 36% in terms of throughput while detecting and eliminating the sower attack. Most of the existing works did not consider these three attacks; only few works considered it, but those were failed to meet the quality of service requirements. The detected attacks are avoided in a effective manner to provide the secure communication. Applications/Improvement: From the results, it is concluded that the proposed TRR protocol can detect several attack while satisfying the quality of service needs.
176 A Multi-Class Based Algorithm for Finding Relevant Usage Patterns from Infrequent Patterns of Large Complex Data.  , Sujatha Kamepalli, Rajasekhara Rao Kurra and Y. K. Sundara Krishna.
Background/Objective: With the development of data mining techniques to analyze large amount of complex data has played an essential role in several areas like cloud computing, medical databases, geographical information retrieval, etc. The automatic evaluation of cloud patterns is a challenging task due to the large amount of interesting patterns can be extracted. However, how to find infrequent patterns is still an open issue in cloud computing. Methods: Conventional approaches are mainly depends on quantitative datasets with support and confidence measures. Due to the large amount of cloud storage data, it is very difficult to extract the weighted association rules based on the server usage statistics. Traditional techniques are implemented on the data samples with the same attribute type. Due to this fact, a multi-class algorithm is proposed to find relevant usage patterns of large complex data. Findings: Proposed approach does not rely on any probabilistic closure measures and quantitative data. This approach minimizes the database scans and optimizes the infrequent cloud patterns. Applications/Improvements: Experimental results show that, proposed work generates high quality cloud patterns compared to traditional quantitative rule mining techniques.

184 The Effect of Cultural Values on Caregiving by Generation , Yun-Jeong Kim and Hyun-Jung Kang 
This study focused on the relationship between cultural values and caregiving, and how such relationship differs across generations. Data from 396 youth, 330 adults and 315 elderly were analysed after quota sampling by generation, gender and residential area (urban vs. rural) in January-February 2014. Cultural values of filial piety and familism were highest among the elderly. When the difference in caregiving is compared, the conscious of caregiving among the youth was higher than that of the adult generations’ caregiving service and the elderly generation’s expectations of caregiving. With higher filial piety, their consciousness of caregiving became high; as more caregiving services were provided, there were higher expectations of caregiving. However, for the adult generation, unlike the youth or elderly, the effect of familism on caregiving services was not statistically significant.
185 An Empirical Analysis on Reducing Open Source Software Development Tasks using Stack Overflow. , Tirath Prasad Sahu, Naresh Kumar Nagwani and Shrish Verma.
Objectives: The cross repository analysis between Open Source Software (OSS) and Community Question Answering (CQA) site is presented in order to speed the development process of OSS. Methods/Analysis: The OSS development is becoming popular nowadays due to fact that the source codes, the developer specifications and bug lists are made available online to the public.

Similarly, Stack Overflow is an interactive CQA site that caters programming related questions with their answers online and turned into repositories of software engineering knowledge. In order to track the correlation of such sites with software development tasks, we employ the two repositories to find the semantic similarity between bugs and Question and Answer (Q&A) posts posted on OSS projects and Stack Overflow respectively. The semantic similarity is analyzed by integrating the contents of the repositories based on text mining approach. The relationship between a bug and Q&A post is established through the semantic similarity and metadata features. Findings: The statistics of our analysis is presented for five OSS projects in terms of number of bugs and average bug fix time. The statistical result shows that the bug fix time can be reduced by posting the bugs into Stack Overflow. Application/Improvement: The presented approach can be utilized to find the similar Q&A posts for reported OSS bug and helps developers of OSS projects to resolve the bugs quickly by leveraging programming skills of users’ in the form of Q&A posts.

Background: The research explains why the regional legal structure is expected to stimulate the creation of new transnational corporations and to contribute to the global competitiveness increase of the Eurasian Economic Union. Methods: The following different methods were used to solve the tasks of the research: the literature research, the comparative legal analysis, the retrospective analysis and logical approach. Findings: The research resulted in the proposals and recommendations for the development of a new regional legal structure within the Eurasian Economic Union based on the most successful international experience. It is obvious that the competitive advantage of the EAEU depends on the productivity of the companies operating in it. The encouragement of the corporate productivity can be achieved by creating the regional business legal structure. This legal structure would facilitate cross-border mergers between strong national companies and encourage competitive governance, which would create favorable environment for the development of business. It eventually would stimulate the shift of the EAEU businesses to the global level. Improvements: The possible enhancement of a new regional business legal structure within the Eurasian Economic Union has never been studied before. Therefore, the research conducted in the frame of this paper is believed to become a theoretical basis for the future studies on transnational corporations within the newly created EAEU. From the practical standpoint, the results of this research might be used for the development of the EAEU corporate law and future amendments to the legislation of its Member States in order to facilitate corporate integration within the region.

This research is the first one to analyze the identity of modern Korean youth in the Russian Far East from the perspective of ethno-psychology. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Comparative analysis was used to analyze ethnic identity of modern Russian and Korean youth. The investigation included 260 people: 130 respondents in each group. Findings: As a part of this study, the following facts have been discovered: - the major part of the representatives of modern Korean youth grown up in multiethnic society of the Far East of Russia have preserved mono identity (60% of the sample) with positive perception of their ethnicity; - according to the respondents, modern Korean family is still playing a decisive role in developing and preserving ethnic identity; - considerable part of the representatives of Korean youth (40% of the sample) possesses bi-ethnic identity; - prevailing positive type of ethnic identity among Korean young people, positive perception of the members of other ethnic groups, willingness to enter into interethnic contacts facilitate their effective integration into multicultural environment; - for a group of young Koreans, ethno-nihilism and undervaluation of their ethnic affiliation are a means for effective integration in titular and other ethnic groups living in the Far East of Russia. Application/Improvements: The obtained findings enable to forecast the development of ethnic identity of the Far Eastern Koreans for the purposes of regulating inter-ethnic cooperation, prevention of ethnic conflicts and extremism in the multiethnic youth environment of the Russian Far East.
189 Materials and Microclimatic Characteristics of Dinosaur Footprint Sites in Uiseong and Haenam Area, Korea. , Ji Hyun Yoo and Chan Hee Lee 
The dinosaur footprint fossil sites at Uiseong Jeori and Haenam Uhangri are representative Natural Heritage sites in Korea. This study was performed to analyze the materials and microclimatic characteristics of these fossil sites to enable longterm conservation. The material characteristics of fossil sites showed that the host rocks of these areas were composed of vulnerable sedimentary rocks by weathering. We were also conducted focusing on the microclimate environments within the protective structures of the fossil sites. There is an open protective structure at Uiseong Jeori, which delivers adequate ventilation but is vulnerable to frost weathering in winter. Therefore, it is considered necessary to extend the drain at the back of the protective structure for the site. In contrast, enclosed protective structures with air conditioning were built at Haenam Uhangri. However, although it is possible to control the internal microclimate therein, condensation occurs ­frequently as a result of microclimatic differences in the interior structure, and thus additional measures are required.

In addition, 40.6% removal of ammonia-nitrogen is recorded in reactor containing the media hexafilter has been achieved while the reactor containing a commercial media reaches ammonia-nitrogen removal percentage of 43.6%. The experimental results also showed that in the HRT of 24 hours, the percentage of COD in the reactor containing hexafilter reach up to 67.6% removal of COD compared with commercial media, which recorded the percentage removal of COD at 63%. Moreover, the trend of pH and DO profile is maintained at optimum conditions in both reactors when the pH is in the range of 6.5-7.5, while the average reading for DO for the reactor containing hexafilter is 6.82 mg/L while the commercial media reactor is 6.78 mg/L. Application/Improvements: In comparison between supporting media designed with commercial media, which shows through the experimental results of this scientific project, hexafilter is more effective in wastewater treatment and experimental performance can be compared with existing commercial media.
191 An Indoor Location Tracking using Wireless Sensor Networks Cooperated with Relative Distance Fingerprinting. , Youn-Sik Hong 
We present a method of moving path control of an automatic guided vehicle (AGV) in an indoor environment through recognition of markers. A linear relationship between the relative distance to a marker from the current location of an AGV and the size of the recognized marker image can be built. Thus using the length of the recognized marker image as a fingerprint instead of the received signal strength (RSS) may result in a more reliable estimation of the location. Our simulation results show that the maximum localization error is less than 2cm and thus the range of the estimation error is ±0.025%. The main advantage of the proposed system is that they are highly flexible for on-demand delivery to any location.
192 A Study on the Differential Compression Method for High-speed Transfer.  , Geun-Ho, Lee , Sun-Woo, Ko and Soo-Tae, Kwon 
Nowadays, most of people are using image for communication. And also, SNS (Social Network Service) which is used by young man have to be loaded images. So, we propose a new differential compression method for high-speed transfer. In this proposed method, the feature which is the encoding process according to subjectively image quality can be demonstrated. Human studies have shown that most of people have the interest about special area. Using the individuality, the relatively high quality can be obtained at the special area and the relatively low quality can be obtained at the other area in encoding process. In order to use these characteristics, the image is separated simple and complex block using 8x8 block standard deviation. And also, we have applied low compression rate and high compression rate to each region. The experimental results are demonstrated that proposed differential scheme can achieve better image quality at the high compression ratio. The proposed method is possible to maintain a high quality by differential compression of images. And then, we can apply to MPEC and H.26X.

In the present study, torsion springs with different spring tensions were designed and produced, and a study was conducted concerning what effects vibration occurring in an exhaust variable valve has on engine performance and back pressure. Therefore, it will be affirmed by designing and producing torsion springs with different spring tensions in the present study what effects vibration produced in the exhaust variable valve has on engine performance and back pressure. According to the results of conducting back pressure experiments with respect to mass flux supply for 4 types of K1, K2, K3 and K4 having different torsion spring constants of an exhaust variable valve, a conclusion was obtained showing a parabolic trend in the order of K1 < K2 < K3 < K4 and it could be seen from burst of speed section and certain section of K1, K2, K3 and K4 that vibration due to opening and closing of the valve occurred in the exhaust variable valve with different torsion spring constants in the order of K1 (0.6 (g)) < K2 (0.8 (g)) < K3 (1.3 (g)) < K4 (1.8 (g)). Therefore, when a pulsation phenomenon occurring in a combustion chamber of automobile engines is minimized, it is considered that more improved performance can be obtained from stabilized engine combustion.
198 Problems of Inter-organizational Interaction of Participants in Motor Transport Cargo Shipments.  , Sergey Mikhailovich Mochalin, Lyudmila Vladimirovna Tyukina, Tatiana Valerievna Novikova, Irina Vladimirovna Pogulyaeva and Elena Vasilievna Romanenko.
Background/Objectives: The study considers currently important problems of inter-organizational interaction of participants involved in automotive cargo shipments and implementation of such concepts as “Just-in-Time” and “Justin-Sequence” in scheduling practices. Methods: The applied Six Sigma methodology is focused on the client’s wishes and requirements for cargo delivery, according to which the slow processes are expensive. The applied “lean production” method is based on the fact that shipping time losses occur during transportation and waiting time. Thus, a refined methodology has been developed synthesizing “Lean production” and “Six Sigma”, one of the tools which is the concept of “just in time” delivery. Findings: It has been concluded that one of the reasons for low efficiency of the day-to-day scheduling efforts is represented by the problems of organizational interrelations between the stakeholders of the highway cargo transportation business. Generalizations of the road haulage practices together with the outcomes of the investigations carried out by Siberian Automobile and Highway Academy made it possible to identify the groups of interaction problems and the causes in this area. A conceptual approach has been suggested to solve these issues based on such logistical principles as “Just-in-Time” and “Just-in-Sequence”. In line with the developed approach, the article justifies the need to introduce the abovementioned principles to scheduling practices to improve the processes of control and management in haulage sector. Developing and implementing “Just-in-Time” and “Just-in-Sequence” philosophy in transport logistics is of crucial importance, as it is only within such system that the cargo delivery process could be comprehensively controlled. This system improves customer relationships, establishes the company at the market, stabilizes its financial standing, and enhances its competitive advantages. Applications/Improvements: The study identifies preconditions and constrains to be taken into account in the course of developing scheduling model for material and information flows in the area of automotive cargo shipments.
199 A Study on the of Justification of Low Dose Chest Computed Tomography during Health Examinations.  , In-Gyu You, Cheong-Hwan Lim and Young-Cheol Joo 
Background:In this study,the justification after evaluating the hazards and benefits of a low-dose chest CT scan in a physical examination was investigated as follows. Methods/Statistical Analysis: 502 people who had undergone a CT scan as part of a regular medical checkup and with no clinical symptoms at H hospital, located in Gyeonggi Province, Korea during the period from January to December, 2013 were dichotomized to two groups of those aged under 40 and those aged 40 years or more. Results: Those aged 40 or more who underwent a lung CT test for the first time accounted for 53% (266/502) and those under age 40 accounted for 20.5%(103/502) of their corresponding age groups. The ultimate purpose of CT tests is the early detection of lung cancer. Eight patients were discovered to have lung cancer and their characteristics were as follows. All were male and the youngest was 44 years old. The average number of calcified nodules in those with a noncalcified nodule was 1.00 those under 40 and 1.58 for of 40 or older, which was also a significant difference (p<0.05). But overall chest CT in this situation was not found to be justified based on considerations of the balance between the benefits of CT and the overall risk of radiation exposure. Conclusion: In order to secure justification, routine chest CT should be conducted from an age of 40 or at an earlier age in those with a smoking history
200 A Hybrid Approach to Content Based Image Retrieval Using Computational Intelligence Techniques.  , Sumaira M. Hayat Khan and Ayyaz Hussain.
Objectives: Improvement in the retrieval performance of the system can be brought by fusion of image features with different similarity measures. Performance of the system can be further improved by incorporating user’s feedback into the system. Method: An extensive system is proposed based on one of the computational intelligence techniques for the effective retrieval of required images from systems. The proposed technique consists of two main modules, namely: feature vector processing and result enhancement. Feature fusion is performed by application of genetic operators to find the final distance between probe and stored images. Subsequently estimated retrieved images are presented to the user, first k-images will be selected by the user as K-NN query images and are ranked according to their relevance values provided by the user. Optimization of retrieved images is done by iteratively providing user’s feedback to the system. Findings: Feature fusion and effective relevance feedback methods can contribute extensive benefits to content based image retrieval. Feature fusion combines different image features in such a way to get a single feature vector for all of them but combination of different image features however is not always beneficial. Semantic gap is reduced by providing user’s feedback after the retrieval of images. This is an iterative process and it defines a set of relevant images in the end. Genetic algorithm based search is applied for a series of weighting functions which helps to maximize the fitness function. Applications/Improvements: Multifarious features are introduced where different image features are combined with different similarity measures and the final distance is drawn by employing genetic programming technique.

The purpose of this study was to provide data of nursing intervention development to develop quality of life related health for male workers by consciousness of influencing factors of quality of life. The subjects were 175 male workers at A, C, D, K, and I cites for descriptive statistics. The data were collected from March 5, 2014 to March 28 by questionnaire survey and analyzed by descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson’s correlation coefficients, and stepwise multiple regression. The results of study were to show that male office workers of type D personality were 55 people (31.8%). There were significant differences of the degree of life habit, self-esteem, job stress and health-related quality of life between group of type D personality and group of type non-D personality. The correlated factors of male office workers revealed positive correlation for health related quality of life and life habit (r=.47, p<.001), negative correlation for type D personality (r=- .64, p<.001), and medium negative correlation for job stress (r=-.44, p<.001). The result of multiple regression analysis for factors influencing of health related quality of life was to show 40.4% (β=-.35, p<.001) for health related quality of life for type D personality, and 7.2% for self-esteem (β=.28, p<.001), 2.5% for life habit (β=.17, p=.007), and 1.5% for job stress (β=-.16, p=.010). In this respect, these variables presented 51.7% of health related quality of life. Therefore, factors like personality, self-esteem, life habit, and job stress in order to develop heath-related quality of life should be considered. The study especially showed type D personality as a main effect. One need to develop an effective plan for dealing stress by psychological intervention that may help to regulate negative emotions.

Objectives: Nuchal Translucency (NT) thickness measurement is a Down syndrome marker for chromosomal abnormalities which is detected by non-invasive test during first trimester. Methods: In this paper, a computerized method to measure NT thickness is proposed. It consists of region of interest extraction, NT segmentation using morphological operation with Otsu thresholding. The NT thickness is measured from the segmented area. The performance is analyzed on 80 ultrasound fetal images. Findings: Proposed approach for NT measurement is implemented in MATLAB software. Experimental results show that NT thickness for normal foetus is 1.99±.62 mm and abnormal foetus is 4.10±.90 mm during first trimester of pregnancy from 11 to 13+6 weeks of gestation. The proposed algorithm efficiently computes NT measurement and produces consistent result during first trimester in singleton pregnancies. Applications/Improvements: Proposed semi-automated technique helps the medical sonographer for accurate NT thickness measurement to detect Down syndrome marker during first trimester ultrasound scan.
208 Effects of Work Environment and Resilience on Job Satisfaction and Organisational commitment of Social Workers in Juvenile Reformatory Schools , Eun Jung Lee and Punghoi Cha 
With a consistent increase of juvenile criminal recidivism, restorative justice tends to emerge as a new paradigm in juvenile justice reform for preventing juvenile criminal recidivism and improving juvenile delinquency treatment. Restorative justice emphasises re-socialisation at the community, shifting from existing facility-centered, public-centered juvenile justice to local community centered, public-private cooperated rehabilitation to juvenile offenders. Thus, it is needed to change the function of juvenile reformatory schools and to assign appropriate profession. In Korea, social workers have newly assigned to juvenile reformatory school with introduction of restorative justice to Juvenile in 2010. This study aims to analyse the characteristics of the work environment and resilience of social workers in juvenile reformatory schools and to identify influencing factors on their job satisfaction and organisational commitment. For this purpose, data were collected by a survey with all 72 social workers atjuvenile reformatory schools nationwide, and for the analysis, hierarchical regression was applied. As a result of the analysis, as for work environment factor, organisational work environment had significant effects on job satisfaction and organisational commitment of social workers but role work environment did not have any significant impacts on them. As for resilience, the more resilient of social workers, the higher job satisfaction and organisational commitment. Based on the findings of study, suggestions are discussed for organisational environment and policy implications in order to improve job satisfaction and organisational performance of social worker in the correctional area.

In conclusion, active rest is to show the fatigue substance lower than that of passive rest method, it was found that the performance capabilities of the next can be improved.
210 Cloud Computing Security with Collaborating Encryption.  , N. D. Jambhekar , Sanjay Misra  and C. A. Dhawale
The security of bigger data is the bottleneck in the encryption and decryption because of the big data size. The single encryption technique using one source is not adequate to accomplish the big data cloud computing security. This paper elaborates the working of cloud computing and the collaborating source security system for the Big Data security. A collaborating encryption technique framework is proposed in this paper to meet the futures’ faster encryption requirements. The traditional information security system is not capable to provide the complete security during the cloud computing. The method described in this research comprises the parallel and distributed encryption system which gets the benefits the homomorphic encryption technique. The encryption facility during the mobile communication of object is tedious. Every cloud has its own security features and can be working in collaboration with the other cloud servers. Therefore, the parallel and distributed encryption facilities can be possible at every next door of other cloud without breaking the sequence of encryption process. The essential resources become the remote resources and the allocation of these resources can be managed at every cloud. Most of the time while working with the cloud computing is the availability of network and other resources. Providing the information security in the unavailability of resources during encryption and decryption is a difficult task. The collaboration encryption technique is a framework where, different clouds can work in parallel with the distributed processing. The security mechanism is improved by the homomorphic encryption.

Background: The customers always desire to get the required services from a single cloud. It will not provide a high quality of services to the end user because all cloud services are limited to some extent i.e. lack of standard. This problem has been overcome by using the multi-cloud architecture which will provide the high quality of services with reliability. Methods: There are various parameters are analyzed to achieve multi cloud integration. The proposed work focuses on metering control which is a one of the parameter to manage the risk during the time of interaction. Findings: The common deployment model acts as a broker in various cloud interaction to achieve a high quality of services to the customer. The features are extracted from the cloud based on the services which is provided by the service provider. The services are classified and risks are assessed for selecting the suitable services from the cloud. The perfect metering gives the better confident level to the customer using the selected services. There are two essentials implemented in the customer end and provider end they are service control and service registry. The objective of the proposed system is to control the services and its interactions with the supports of cloud metering. Application: The risk assessment has been implemented for assessing the Quality of Service (QoS) with reliable multi-cloud interaction.

Background/Objectives: The study aims to determine the Turkic origins of the traditional Kazakh historical thought and Islamic influence on its formation and to provide a scientific reconstruction of the Kazakh Khanate’s history. Methods: Methodological analysis of the medieval-era written sources presupposes the usage of the methods of forecasting and assumption, comparison and scientific reconstruction, aimed at the disclosure of the content of scientifically-confirmed events and facts that can be found in genealogical tables, genealogies, and traditional written sources. Genealogy is used as an auxiliary method. Findings: As a result, the functions of genealogical data as a unique historical source that reveals the essence of the social and political relationships and social institutions of the traditional Kazakh society were classified. Thus, greater emphasis was placed on the religious and spiritual aspects of ethno-political processes in the society, which previously were not covered in the fundamental studies based on ideological postulates. The paper also provides the periodization of the Kazakh historical thought formation and development, systematizes the process of integration of the Islamic historical thought and the foundations of the Turkic worldview into the genealogical data that strengthened the tribal structure of the Kazakh society. For the first time, the concept of transformation of the ancient Turkic notion of the sacredness of the authority over the Islamic spiritual and political values advocated by the Turko-Islamic Sufi Ahmad Yasawi as a basis of the state ideology of the Kazakh Khanate was proposed. The Kazakh shezhire (genealogy) as a genre of oral history was evaluated methodologically. Applications/Improvements: The results of this study can be used in teaching relevant disciplines such as history,
219 Time Sensitive Business Intelligence - Big Data Processing Methodology for Frequently Changing Business Dimensions. , Anusuya Kirubakara  and M. Aramudhan  
Background: In the competitive data driven business world, business Intelligence (BI) team converts the raw operational data to information for decision making. Operational system captures the day-to-day operations and BI database refreshes operational data periodically. Methods: A component to create the metadata repository which maintains the current BI database summary by logical data partitioning using range based partition for frequently changing parameter which are critical to business. During different time frequency, using metadata repository component identifies the latest data victim between BI vs operational data and refreshes the modified victim to BI database. Findings: In traditional data loading approach from Operational system to BI database, huge volume of data gets refreshed periodically irrespective of modifications, which leads to higher processing time and cost. To overcome this limitation, this proposed methodology helps to identify the latest data victims present in operational systems instead of bulk data replacement which can minimize the processing time and enables faster data transformation to achieve “Time to Decision" and “Quick to Market" implementation for business enhancements. Also component can be scheduled for data refresh with different time frequency for multiple critical to business as well as frequently changing parameters. Applications: In financial, traffic, weather, e-business, Logistics & stock management transactions, data changes frequently and process big data periodically to gain real-time knowledge discovery for time sensitive decision making.

223 RST Invariant Image Forgery Detection , Gulivindala Suresh and Chanamallu Srinivasa Rao.
Background/Objectives: Copy-Move Forgery Detection (CMFD) is a very prevalent approach used to detect copy and pasted portions of the same image. The copied portion is rotated, flipped or scaled. The detection method should be invariant to rotation, scaling and translation. Many CMFD methods came into existence; however, some methods fail to withstand attacks such as Contrast adjustment, Gaussian blur and JPEG Compression. Although the methods are able to resist the attacks, they are computationally complex. This paper proposes a Rotation, Scaling, Translation (RST) invariant image forgery detection. Methods: Local Binary Pattern (LBP) is applied on the low frequency content of Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) decomposed image for feature extraction. Findings: The proposed method is invariant to rotation, scaling and translation attacks on the pasted portions of the image and able to resist post-processing attacks and has low computational effort. It is evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively on a CASIA database. Morphological operations are performed to reduce the false alarms. The correct detection ratio is in the range of 80% to 99% and false detection ratio in the range of 7% to 30%. Applications: There is a great demand to detect the forgery, which aids in the digital forensic analysis, in legal document substantiation, and various other fields.

Objective: The objective of present research work is to investigate the effect of single screw extrusion parameters on textural properties of rice based expanded snacks enriched with okara. Method/Analysis: The expanded snacks were prepared through extrusion cooking of broken rice (Oriza Sataiva L) with Okara (a by-product of soy milk)by using a Brabender single-screw extruder. The effects of machine parameters (i.e. barrel temperature (120-160°C), die head temperature (160-200°C), screw speed (50-90 rpm)) and feed parameters (i.e. blend ratio of broken rice and okara (70:30-90:10) and moisture content of feed (14-22 percent w.b.) were analyzed using Response Surface Methodology (RSM) with central composite rotatable design. Multiple regression equations and various response surface plots were generated to show the impact of each independent parameter on the quality of extruded snacks. Findings: The extruded snacks textural characteristics (hardness and crispness) were determined by texture analyser. The product textural characteristics were found to be most dependent on feed moisture content, blend ratio, barrel temperature and die head temperature. The presence of okara in blend ratio contributed to decrease the crispness and to increase in hardness of extrudate. Applications: This research effort to encourage the utilization of by-products of rice mill and soy milk units for the production of new value added expanded snacks. Textural properties (Hardness, Crispness etc.) of expanded snacks have prime importance in the acceptability of extruded product among the consumers.

226 Geochemical Analysis of Domestic Groundwater Sources in a Suburb of Ota, Southwestern Nigeria. , T. Kayode Olusola , P. Aizebeokhai Azegbobor, O. Adewoyin Olusegun, S. Joel Emmanuel and Omeje Maxwell
Groundwater as one of the most valuable natural resources supports human health, economic development and ecological diversity. The activities of many constituents related to groundwater such as micro-organisms, gases, inorganic and organic materials can lead to contamination of well water, municipal drinking water sources and the environment. Therefore, geochemical analyses of domestic groundwater sources within Iju, Southwestern Nigeria have been conducted to determine the groundwater properties of water samples from available hand-dug wells and boreholes within the area. Fifteen (15) water samples sourced from wells and boreholes within the study area were analyzed for their major trace elements using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) in the laboratory and physiochemical characteristics such as pH, total dissolved solids and conductivity were calculated to determine the suitability of such water for agricultural and domestic consumption. The bulk analysis on the water samples revealed that majority of the trace elements when compared with the World Health Organization (WHO) drinking water standards and Acme Laboratory Canada Method Detection Limits (MDL) have values that agree with the recommended limit. These findings show that the present status of groundwater in Iju is good for domestic and agricultural purposes. However, the presence of trace elements such as Lead, Bromide, Copper, Potassium, Manganese, Rubidium and Silicon in fairly high quantities in the groundwater samples which may be as a result of treatment in the water or dissolved salts in the groundwater may constitute major health hazards if not quickly checked. In spite of groundwater studies done in Ota, important information on groundwater resources in Iju is still largely unavailable. Thus, groundwater management can be effectively planned based on these results for the study area

230 Mathematical Modeling of Wastewater Vibrational Filtering Process. , Jamil I. Safarov
Background/Objectives: The article describes the development of the tools to design wastewater vibrational filtering process based on mathematical modeling of the motion of contaminating particles. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A method of reducing contamination of the filtered surface through forced vibration is considered. To build a mathematical model, we consider the mode of motion of particles without contact with each other. In this case, hydrodynamic resistance forces effect on the particle determined by the difference of water flow velocity at the location of the particle and own velocity of the particle. Findings: The proposed mathematical model is based on representation of solid contaminations of the liquid being treated as a set of spherical particles of different diameters, which allows taking into account the basic properties of interaction of particles with the liquid and contact interaction between the particles and between a particle and the filter screen. Dimensionless performance evaluation criteria of vibrational filtering are proposed, as well as dimensionless parameters to evaluate the properties of the filtering surface with respect to the particle diameter. Applications/Improvements: As a result of mathematical modeling, nonlinear dependence of the average frequency of passage of particles through the filter surface on vibration parameters and on dimensionless parameters of the filter is established. The range of parameters of the filtering element is found ensuring maximum efficiency of the filtering process.

The purpose of this in vitro study was to compare the effect of in-office bleaching application on the color, microhardness, and surface roughness of five different tooth-colored restorative materials. Thirty specimens were fabricated from each restorative materials nano-hybrid composite (Grandio/Voco), micro-hybrid composite (Filtek Z250/3M), flow able composite (Filtek P60/3M), compomer (Dyract AP/DentsplyDeTrey) and glass-ionomer cement (Ketac Molar Easymix/3M)] and divided into 3 subgroups. Specimens in group 1 were stored in distilled water at 37ºC (control) during the hiatus period. Specimens in group 2 and 3 were treated with 15% hydrogen peroxide (HP) and 25% hydrogen peroxide, respectively. The data were analyzed with ANOVA and T-test. 15% HP and 25% HP groups showed an apparent color change (∆E*) than control group. In particular, Dyract AP and Ketac Molar Easymix showed a noticeable color change and statistically significant differences (p<0.05). HP groups showed a reduction in microhardness. Filtek Z250 and Filtek P60 does not have a statistically significant difference (p>0.05), Dyract AP and Ketac Molar Easy mix showed a statistically significant difference (p<0.05). Surface roughness was increased in 25% HP group after bleaching. In-office bleaching agents may affect the surface of existing restorations. Bleaching agents should not be used indiscriminately when these restorations are present.
232 Biometrics as a Cryptographic Method for Network Security.  , Kumar Ankit and Jayaram Rekha 
Background: Cryptography is considered as an effective method for secure transmission of data but falls prey to network attacks. The proposed biometrics-based Encryption/Decryption Scheme uses fingerprints to generate a unique key. Methods: The presented technique combines portions of fingerprint of the sender and the receiver to generate a random sequence, which is used as a public-key for Encryption as well as Decryption. The key thus generated is distinct as it is watermarked with sender's biometric signature. The encrypted message is then sent to the receiver along with the key. The receiver uses this key to decrypt the message to plain text. Findings: This system has a significant advantage as there is no requirement for the asymmetric key to be stored in a protected place, thus reducing the security threats to the minimum. The fingerprint is an inherent trait of every individual and is distinct. Hence billons of unique keys can be created, making it very hard for an attacker to guess the key. Applications: The biometric based system significantly increases the power of traditional crypto-system
233 Effect of Filial Piety and Intimacy on Caregiving Stress among Chinese Adult Married Children Living with Parents. , Yun-Jeong Kim and Hyun-Jung Kang 
This study investigated how filial piety and intimacy were applied to family caregiving stress. Data were obtained from a survey of 295 family caregivers in Xuan Ceobg and Chi Zhou, a city in An Hui Province of China from January to February 2014. The majority of caregiving was being provided for one’s own parents 78.3%, which was twice the rate of caregiving for a spouse’s parents. On responsibility, ‘caregiving by sharing with brothers/sisters equally’ was most common at 52.9%, followed by main caregiver at 27.5% and sole caregiver at 19.7%. Of living with elderly parents, 40.3% of caregivers did and 59.7% did not. The mean score for filial piety was 3.28 points, intimacy was 4.12 points, and caregiving stress was 2.19 points on a 5-point Likert scale. Of caregivers living with parents, filial piety increased caregiving stress but intimacy reduced stress for sole caregivers. Only caregivers not living with parents could reduce caregiving stress with intimacy.
234 The Institute of Biys in the Imperial Russia and Early Soviet Period: From Reforms to Abolishment. , Zhanna S. Mazhitova, Bibihadisha Zh. Abzhapparova , Roza T. Aytbay 
Background/Objectives: The article presents the history of the court of biys in the Soviet period. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The authors note that after political and legal reforms of the Russian Empire in the 19th century, the court of biys was not subject to deep transformation. It continued to be a means of regulation of social relations in the Kazakh society. Also, various legal practices - adat, Sharia law, Russian law, gradual incorporation of local cultural and legal space into the Imperial. However, the state of the court of biys began to change with the Bolsheviks’ rise to power. Findings: In the beginning populist slogans of the Soviet regime about universal equality and equal rights of all the nations formerly being the part of the Russian Empire, weakness and lack of knowledge about government of nomadic peoples made the Bolsheviks to tolerate legal customary practices of local nations. In those years courts of biys continued to exist as Aqsaqal (arbitral) courts and councils. However, with the establishment of the power, the Bolsheviks headed for complete abolishment of all the traditional institutes of the Kazakh society. The government adopted several documents aimed at first at weakening and then at abolishment of legal customary culture of the nation. The measures of the Soviet government revealed persistence of the experience and knowledge in the national conscience. Applications/Improvements: Thus, during the first decade of Soviet period the government went from support of traditional Kazakh court over to gradual abolishment and interdiction of their activity in the territory of Kazakhstan
235 Resolving the Recruitment and Selection Problem as NP-Hard Problem.  , E. Okewu and S. Misra  
Background/Objectives: As organizations increasingly strive to attract and retain high calibre ICT-compliant staff, recruitment and selection is attracting huge attention. This paper classified the recruitment and selection problem as NP-hard problem and applied metaheuristic algorithm to solve it. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study focused on University of Lagos, Nigeria as case study and applied computational theory in the form of metaheuristic algorithm in a bid to improve on the existing recruitment and selection process. We reviewed literature, gathered requirements, designed a system and statically tested the process-correctness of the proposed system. The operational recruitment and selection data collected and used for statical testing were obtained from secondary materials of the University. Findings: We were able to establish that the recruitment and selection problem in University of Lagos, Nigeria is NP-Hard and equally confirmed appropriateness of applying metaheuristic solution rather than exact algorithm to such problem, given its complex and varied nature.

236 An Analysis of Cash Holdings of ICT firms , Milim Chon and Jeongmi Choi 
Objectives: The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether the levels of cash holdings and cash reserves of ICT firms are different from those of non-ICT firms. Methods/Analysis: This study in this paper uses regression analysis to examine the association between ICT industry and level of cash holding and cash reserve ratio. Our final sample contains 1,299 Korean listed firms from 2011 to 2013. The key classification is the distinction between ICT and non-ICT firms. The former are firms in the information and communications technology industry, and the latter are in traditional manufacturing industries. Findings: The results of this study indicate that cash holdings and cash reserves ratio are positively associated with ICT firms. ICT firms and non-ICT firms take different approaches to spending and holding their cash. Firms with high sales volatility and capital expenditures including ICT firms hold more cash, and firms with higher leverage and sales revenue hold less cash. While the cash reserve ratio is unrelated to sales volatility, and firms with a high cash reserve ratio are more likely to have higher sales revenue. Conclusion/Application: This is one of few empirical studies that examine the relationship between cash holding and characteristics of ICT firm. This study simply that the level of cash holdings of a firm is affected by not only its capital structure but also industry characteristics. By examining this relationship, the study offers another consideration of the ongoing debate in Korean market about high cash holdings and conglomerate.
237 The Role of the Russian Legal Mentality in Shaping Legal Policy in Present-Day Russian Society.  , Olga I. Miroshnichenko  and Tamara G. Okminskaya  
Background/Objectives: Through the example of the Russian Federation, this article discusses issues in shaping effective legal policy. Methods: We used the methods of theoretical analysis, the method of comparison, and the method of simulation. Findings: Our proposals do not just reflect the Russian experience but could be of interest in all countries undergoing reform at the moment. We view legal policy as an integrated activity by the state aimed at reforming all the elements in the legal system. In the end, we come to the conclusion that the degree to which law-making is currently being enhanced is insufficient. Application/Improvements: There is a need for the state to actively develop other forms of legal policy, namely those related to nurturing, educational, and ideological activity. Besides, effective legal policy ought to be founded on what the mentality of a particular social community is like – otherwise, any progressive innovations in the legal area are just doomed to failure.
238 Integrated Intrusion Detection Approach for Cloud Computing.  , C. Ambikavathi  and S. K. Srivatsa  
Objectives: Intrusion Detection System (IDS) models and methods are integrated for better detection of intruders and mitigation of false alarms. Integrated IDS is proposed to provide security in a cloud environment. Methods: The distributed and dynamic nature built-in of cloud environment leads to critical issues like huge log analysis, heterogeneous traffic aggregation and scalability, etc. Intrusion specific data classification and false alarms degrades performance. This integrated model integrates both IDS models and IDS methodologies. Host-based IDS (H-IDS) model integrates with network-based IDS (N-IDS) model, as well as signature and anomaly based IDS methods are integrated to get the best of each. Findings: Whenever a Virtual Machine (VM) is created, H-IDS is in-built into its operating system to monitor the activities within that VM. N-IDS is deployed at strategic locations within the cloud network to monitor the traffic between the virtual machines and from the outside environment. Any malicious activity initiated by a cloud user using their virtual machine is detected by H-IDS. The packets flowing through the cloud network are captured and analyzed by N-IDS to detect infected packets send by hackers. The weakness of one methodology is compromised by the other during integration, but if the methods are used separately they are ineffective. Known attacks can be detected by signature based IDS and the new/unknown attack patterns are identified by anomaly based IDS. The major drawback of anomaly based IDS is high false alarm rate. It can be overcome by signature based IDS. This proposed work is implemented using Opennebula, for constructing a cloud environment and tested with IDS tools. Improvements: This integration leads to improve cloud security and trust among consumers. IDS specific issues are also rectified such as false alarms, heterogeneity etc.

Backgraound/Objectives: During the production of bedak sejuk (local face powder cosmetic made from rice), the soaking water were changed intermittently because of its pungent smell, believe to be caused by microbial reactions. In this initial investigation, we monitored the microbial population in the series of batch fermentation of bedak sejuk. Methods: Local polished rice grains (Indica) were soaked in tap water (w/v) at ambient temperature mimicking the usual preparation of bedak sejuk. The overall soaking period was 28 days (two times of soaking, 14 days for each interval). The soaking water was serially diluted and then spread over several types of agar. To count the lactic acid bacteria (LAB), the diluted samples were spread on the M17 media, yeast and mould were spread on Dichloran Rose Bengal Chloramphenicol agar (DRBC) while coliforms were spread on Petri-Film. The results were indicated as Colony-Forming Units per milligram (CFU/mL) of soaking water. Findings: For the first batch fermentation, the microbial count in soaking water was 11.44 log CFU/mL. LAB counts increased from 3.02 to 6.14 log CFU/mL at the end of fermentation time. Yeasts count increased from 1.68 to 2.78 log CFU/mL, mould count also increased from 0.73 to 1.31 log CFU/mL while coliform count decreased from 3.88 to 1.21 log CFU/mL. While for the second batch fermentation, microbial count in soaking water was 13.15 log CFU/mL. LAB counts increased from 5.65 to 6.81 log CFU/mL at the end of fermentation time. Yeasts count increased from 2.34 to 3.37 log CFU/mL, mould count also increased from 1.33 to 2.08 log CFU/mL while coliform count decreased from 2.38 to 0.89 log CFU/ml. Application: The results of the study have given the initial background information on the varieties of microbial populations that presence during the natural fermentation of bedak sejuk.
241 Characterization and Performance Evaluation of Ultrafiltration Membrane for Humic Acid Removal. , Yeit Haan Teow  
Background/Objectives: Humic Acid (HA) appears in conventional water treatment processes will compose to carcinogenic disinfection by-products. This has sparked this study to examine the effectiveness of polymeric membranes in HA removal. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Different types of membranes with a wide range of Molecular Weight Cut-Off (MWCO) were used in this study and their separation performances were evaluated by varying the Transmembrane Pressure (TMP) and HA concentrations. The permeates and feeds were analyzed by measuring the UV absorbance at wavelength of 254 nm. Findings: Among four membrane modules that used in this study, it was found that membrane Modules 1, 2 and 3 demonstrated similar performances in HA removal with a separation rate of at least 50%. Excellent HA separation (>90%) was reported with the use of membrane Module 4. Increasing of HA concentration from 0.1 to 0.2 mg/L did not expressively reduce membrane efficiency. These membranes however having severe fouling which contributed to a low permeate flow rates after a few runs. The permeate flux was initially high but reduced over the operation time. Simple cleaning could be conducted to recover the permeate flux but not 100% recovery as compared to the original fresh membranes. Application/ Improvements: Based on the experiments, it can be established that the hollow fiber UF membrane is suitable for HA removal.

The advent of dynamic logic especially domino logic has made the use of dynamic circuits very wide for the implementation of low power VLSI circuits. Dynamic logic style is becoming the designers’ choice these days because it has very fast speed and occupies very small area. In this paper we have used various techniques based on domino logic to overcome noise. Each technique has its merits and demerits. Out of these techniques mentioned below we have taken two widely used techniques in domino logic, conditional keeper technique and diode footed domino. We calculated their noise margins at different values of supply voltage. We have done simulations in 90 nm technology. After calculations we found both techniques show fairly good noise immunity but diode footed domino gave better results.

244 Intra State Recovery System Design for Cloud based Applications. , Komal Mahajan and  Deepak Dahiya.
Background/Objectives: Considering the growingdemandfor cloud services for development and deploying of critical business applications, it is extremely important that cloud provider guarantees a reliable and robust service by providing fault tolerance mechanisms that enable seamless execution of the business transaction execution even in presence of faulty components. The objective of this paper is to propose a collaborative fault tolerant mechanism between cloud provider and cloud client. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The collaborative fault tolerance approach considers collaboration between the cloud provider and the cloud client to develop a comprehensive fault tolerance solution that can be customised to suit to the hosted cloud applications needs.The proposed design is based on usage ofPersistent Map based strategy. Findings: The Persistent Map based strategy saves the state information of execution in the form of P-maps. The P-map is a persistent hash map that stores the current state of execution of a given task. In the case of failure, it can be used to restart the process from the last state at which the task failed and resume the application execution from that point as though no failure occurred.The P-map storage is a crucial element to be considered in the design of the system, that requires careful analysis and can have a huge impact on the execution of an application. Application/Improvements: The authors have considered an approach which requires a collaboration between cloud providers and cloud client to design a fault tolerance mechanism that takes into consideration the complex cloud infrastructure as well behaviour and functionality of the application in focus.

251 A Systematic Survey of Vanet Routing Protocols based on Transmission Strategies.  , G. Mary Valantina and S. Jayashri  
Vanet is a super class of Manet with some unique features High speed vehicles moving on roads exchange information among them which helps in making a decision that ensures more safety. Since the vehicles move in high speed the link between any two vehicles exists for only few seconds so within that time period the information transfer has to take place. This could be possible only when the design of routing protocol is reliable and efficient. Communication of information is done in three ways. Point to point routing deals with one source to one destination. Multicasting deals with one source to group of destination and broadcasting deals with one source to all destinations in the network. Challenges are different for different types of routing; depending on the applications the routing pattern is going to be different. This paper discusses about these three types of routing and issues and challenges involved in each of this routing is analyzed. The pros and cons of different routing are discussed which would help in designing a protocol for specific applications.
252 Remineralisation Effect of Fluoride on Early Caries Lesions using a Quantitative Light-Induced Fluorescence-Digital (QLF-D).  , Su-Young, Lee , Soon-Ryun, Lim and Young-Sik, Cho 
The aim of this study was to evaluate the remineralisation effect after fluoride application onto an early caries lesion using a Quantitative Light-induced Fluorescence-Digital (QLF-D). Specimens were prepared by human posterior teeth and were embedded into a plaster cast to exposure the crown part. Specimens were divided randomly into the following three groups; (1) control group, (2) 2% NaF solution, (3) 1.23% APF gel. Artificial enamel caries were formed in specimens (demineralised area) with a 1.0% Carbopol 2050 (pH 4.8). Topical fluoride solution and gel were applied to the specimens of experimental group for 4 minutes and they were immersed in human saliva for 1 hour. Mineral loss of artificial caries lesion was evaluated by fluorescence loss (⊿F) values usingQLF-D.Differences between baseline and post-treatment values in the three groups were assessed one-way ANOVA and post-hoc test was performed with the Tukey’s test (SPSS 18.0). The average ⊿F values of baseline were –6.56 in three groups. ⊿F of APF gel group (1.90) is greatly decreased compared to the baseline and was statistically significant difference compared with two groups (0.12) (p < 0.05). Therefore, the 1.23% APF gel is the most effective in the treatment of remineralisation of artificial caries lesions. Also, the QLF-D could be useful for the evaluation of the remineralisation effect in early caries.

260 An Analysis of Digital Media Holograms Usage Intentions: An Extension of the Technology Acceptance Model , HongKun Chin and Jae Young Kim 
This study confirms the impact of information quality and system quality on consumers’ technology experience, it specifically shows that the perceived quality of content and system were found to have a significant effect on users’ perceived usefulness and perceived enjoyment. In addition, social influences had a positive effect on the intention to use digital media holograms. Using the 200 data points from the initial sample, the three constructs and their indicators were subjected to confirmation through a measurement model in AMOS 4.0. The results showed that the effect of enjoyment on PU yielded a value of –.39 (p<.01), indicating a negative relationship that was in contrast to initial predictions. In addition, the effect of enjoyment on PEOU yielded a value of .29 (p<.01), but the effect of engagement on PEOU yielded a value of –.29 (p<.01), also shown to support the TAM, given that the effect of PU on PEOU was .29 (p<.01). Finally the effect of attitudes toward using digital media holograms on behavioral intentions to use media yielded a value of 34 (p<.01). These findings suggest an extension of the TAM model for convergence technologies. This research advances theory and contributes to the foundation for future research aimed at improving the understanding of users’ adoption behavior of convergence technologies. The research and practice implications are also discussed.
261 Classification of Event Image Set Using Mining Techniques , S. Regina Lourdhu Suganthi and M. Hanumanthappa
Objective: To develop a system that will optimize storage, automatically classify and tag images using image content and image context by using classification techniques and construct image archive to enable enhanced reference and inference with a simple query. Methods: The approach uses both image processing and data mining techniques. Multi modal processing of the Human brain has the ability to distinguish the components in an image and understand the content instantly. To automate this processing ability by the Computer, Computer Vision attempts various techniques. Features that describe the objects of interest are extracted by converting the image into Hue, Saturation, Value (HSV) space. Further segmentation, profiling and thresholding techniques are applied. Finally K Nearest Neighbours (KNN) classifier has been used for classifying the images. Hierarchical decision tree has been built by uniquely identifying classes that could be used for tagging. Findings: Two levels of classification have been addressed in this paper. Statistical features are extracted from the H-plane of the HSV color space and with an appropriate threshold obtained from the histogram, images have been classified into indoor and outdoor images at the first level.

273 Cluster Based Multipath Dynamic Routing (CBDR) Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks. , G. N. S. Abhishek Varma , G. Aswani Kumar Reddy, Y. Ravi Theja and T. Arunkumar 
QoS of WSN routing protocols are measured in terms of energy-efficiency, end-to-end delay and packet delivery ratio. Multi-path routing provides an easy mechanism to distribute traffic, balance networks load and fault tolerance. However disadvantage of employing multipath routing is delay in path switching and every node has to maintain information of every other node and has to update the whole information periodically which consumes lot of energy. So to overcome this drawback we employ clustering mechanism which divides the entire network in to clusters and multipaths are restricted to these clusters by which traffic will be distributed only to the cluster without propagating entire network and does not cause delay, energy wastage and increases delivery ratio between nodes. Performance is compared between proposed protocol and EQSR protocol by simulating in NS2.
274 Evaluation of Strength Behavior of Self-Compacting Concrete using Alccofine and GGBS as Partial Replacement of Cement , S. Kavitha and T. Felix Kala  
Background/Objectives: The study investigates that alccofine and GGBS combination can be used in the SCC as the strength enhancer. SCC being a high performance concrete after the addition of alccofine, produces a high performance and high strength concrete. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Mix design for SCC can be carried out by Nan-Su method which is considered as a simple mix design and the dosage of super plasticizer will be determined by trial and error as substantial result of characteristics of fresh and hardened concrete and effect of alccofine (5%, 10%, 15% and 20% by volume) by keeping the GGBS percentage constant (30%) on rheological properties and strength properties were investigated. Findings Applications/Improvements: The improvement in behaviour of SCC is because of enhancement in union strength and pore refinement by GGBS. The outcome implies that the workability of SCC with 5% and 10% alccofine by volume of concrete leads to decline of other rheological properties given by codal provisions (EFNARC). In contrast, the improvement in properties of concrete like compressive strength from 36.6 to 42.9 N/mm2 , splitting tensile strength from 3.8 to 7.9 N/mm2 and flexural strength from 4.9 to 8.3 N/mm2 at 28 days was observed with increase in alccofine dosage. Finally the conclusion has been drawn that alccofine and GGBS combination can be used in the SCC as the strength enhancer.
275 Fair Allocation of Reactive Power Contribution by Generators in Ancillary Services Market. , Sravya Pentela and S. V. N. L. Lalitha  
Objectives: In re-structured power systems, knowledge of reactive power supplied by the ancillary services and generators is required separately for accurate and fair cost allocation. The main objective is to price the reactive power based on each generator contributions and static capacitor contributions to individual loads. Methods/Analysis: A Y-bus matrix method is used to obtain the contribution of individual buses to loads. But this bus contribution doesn’t give the fair cost allocation. So, the individual generator contributions should be found. Findings: To find the individual generator contributions a new methodology is proposed in this paper. This new methodology takes the bus inflows and outflows into consideration for finding the bus injections at the generator buses. Using this data, the contribution of generators to the loads can be obtained which gives rise to fair and transparent cost allocation. Applications: This method is applied on simple 5 bus system and on IEEE 30 bus system and obtained results are tabulated and compared with other existing methods.
276 Sequential Ordering of Code Smells and Usage of Heuristic Algorithm , T. Pandiyavathi  and T. Manochandar 
The process of removing the bad smell results in introduction of new smells due to dependency between the codes in the program. This process increases human effort and time. Automated tools are used for detecting the bad smells in the program. This problem is called as ripple effect and we aim in reducing and removing this effect in the program. We apply refactoring process for reducing the amount of bad smells in the code. Since there exist more number of code smells in the program, we generate a sequence in which the refactoring has to be applied by which the evolution of new bad smells is enormously decreased. The refactoring methods that have to be applied to the source code are also ordered using a heuristic algorithm.

279  Predictive Control of Three-Phase Cascaded Multilevel Inverter.  , W. Razia Sultana, Sarat Kumar Sahoo, Kavuri Seshasai Kiran, Gangireddytarakarajasekhar Reddy and Pasam Harshavardhan Reddy 
This paper investigates the performance of a Cascaded Multilevel inverter (MLI) controlled by Model Predictive Control (MPC). This inverter can be used for many applications such as for the induction motor drives or the grid connected systems. The cascaded MLI has 125 discrete space voltage vectors out of which many vectors are redundant. In order to reduce the complexity of calculations only 61 non-redundant vectors are used. The simulation is carried out in MATLAB/ SIMULINK software and the results obtained are discussed. From the results, it can be verified that the MPC Controlled Cascaded MLI achieves a minimum current Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). Further, it also shows an excellent response when the load is dynamically changed.
280 A Hybridized Clustering Approach based on Rough Set and Fuzzy c-Means to Mine Cholesterol Sequence from ABC Family , Ramamani Tripathy , Debahuti Mishra  and V. Badireenath Konkimalla  
Objectives: The current study is focused on design of a computational model for human ABC transporters; wherein the TM-sequences matching the CRAC/CARC motif are extracted. Methods: The postulation of cholesterol binding motif (CRAC/CARC), its presence in different proteins and validating its interaction with cholesterol has indeed established the importance of the motif in cholesterol-mediated modulation of protein/signaling pathway. Several viral proteins and membrane proteins (especially alpha-helical trans membrane proteins) such as GPCR transporters are reported to be modulated by cholesterol. The experimental studies are so far performed on only a few proteins in a family but based on an evolutionary conservation and consensus an exploration can be done confidently within a family. However, the representation of motif has a low consensus yielding several false positives thus reducing its reliability. Findings: A computational hybrid clustering method based on rough set with fuzzy c-means algorithm is used to mine the cholesterol sequence from ABC family. Higher weightage is given to those sequences based on the following parameters: motifs with more number of sub motifs, number of helices bearing the motif in a protein and compliance with the orientation of the cholesterol in the membrane for its interaction with the motif. Improvement: A detailed study in a given super family with an approach to reduce redundancy and enrichment can improve its predictability

283 Prospects of Using Oak Wood Integrated Processing Products in Winemaking, Dealing with Shortcomings on the Base of Implementing Oak Wood Derivative Products , Tariel M. Panakhov 
Background/Objectives: Our studies were aimed at exploring the use of oak derivative products for treating and correcting wine flaws and faults, in particular, mousy taint. Methods/Statistical analysis: To assess condition and stages of disease development in selected wine materials and to define traditional schemes of their processing, which will be used later for control, we conducted research of their physical, chemical and microbiological criteria. Additionally, the wine materials were tested on their susceptibility to turbidity caused by the elevated content of multivalent metals salts (metal casse) as well as colloidal (reversible and irreversible), crystallic and biochemical turbidity in accordance with generally accepted methods. The authors also tested the wine materials for a fault “mousy taint” with the help of the so called “soda test”. Findings: Use of oak derivative products has a positive effect of treating and eliminating mousy taint and improves organoleptic characteristics. Use of oak derivative products for treating faults and correcting mousy taint in dry and fortified wines should be accompanied by preliminary sulfitation and acidification of wine materials to the concentration of titratable acids at least 6.0 g/dm3. To make the processing with oak derivative products even more efficient, it is reasonable to use chips in filtering bags of lavsan or capron fabric, and it is recommended to mix it 2-3 times. Applications/Improvements: Obtained results suggest that the proposed method for treating and correcting wine flaws with oak derivative products is efficient and can be implemented into production.

293 An Efficient Decentralized Control Strategy Applied to an Interconnected Multi-Machine Electric Power Grid , Vu Duy Thuan , Nguyen Ngoc Khoat and Thai Quang Vinh  
Background/Objectives: It is essential to design an efficient decentralized control strategy to deal with the stability against various disturbances in a practical electric power interconnection with nonlinearities and uncertainties. Methods: This paper presents theoretically a decentralized control strategy which is appropriately applied to an interconnected power system. Such an electric power grid is mathematically modeled first, then the design of an efficient control scheme for a stabilized solution will be presented. Finally, the feasibility and superiority of the proposed approach will be verified through various simulation cases using MATLAB/Simulink platform for a typical three-machine electric power system. Findings: It should be obviously found that a practical multi-area electric power network, which is considered to be a typical example of large-scale systems, composes of many synchronous generators. These machines are strongly interconnected via a number of nonlinearities such as parameters of transmission lines, thereby this feature brings a big challenge to the modeling of the network and the design of an efficient control strategy for an electric power interconnection in order to ensure its stability and reliability. Decentralized control strategies have been applied to be more suitable for tackling the stabilization problem of such an interconnected power grid in comparison with the centralized control scheme. In the present paper, an efficient linear decentralized control methodology based on a number of modified Riccati equations to calculate a proper feedback control law will be studied as a typically feasible candidate to this issue. The promising simulation results obtained in a three-machine interconnected power system model with various cases of initial conditions are quite able to demonstrate the superiority of the proposed control methodology. Application/Improvements: The proposed decentralized control strategy is successfully applied to a three-machine electric power interconnection model as a typical case study. Hence, this control methodology can afford to be efficiently adopted to a practical power network.

295 Fuel Adulteration Detection System , V. Jersha Felix, Purohitam Adithya Udaykiran and K.Ganesan 
The emissions from automobiles result in increase of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. One of the major reasons for increased emissions is adulteration of automotive fuel. The adulterant that is mixed with petrol and diesel generally is kerosene. The reason why kerosene is chosen as an adulterant is its low cost. This adulteration results in reduced performance and lifetime of engine and other components of an automobile. Diversion of large amounts of kerosene for the purpose of adulteration reduces its availability to the poor people. So this has forced them to use wood as an alternative to kerosene for their household purposes. This indirectly leads to increase in global warming by increasing air pollution and cutting down of trees. So to prevent all these ill effects, an approach to automatic fuel adulteration detection and reporting system is proposed in this paper.

308 Border Gateway Protocol Performance and its Protection against Disturbed Denial of Service attack.  , Rakesh Kumar Achar , M. Swagath Babu and M. Arun 
Now a day the internet has become very popular in the world. Simple work to complicated work you can accomplish by using internet. Such popularity leads to chances of exhaustion of Internet protocol version 4 which is currently available. To overcome such problem, IPv6 comes in the picture. IPv6 provides more address space, better addressing mechanism and equipped with high security protocol. Unfortunately these IP versions are not compatible to each other. To make such protocol compatible, various tunnelling mechanism are using. Along with tunnelling mechanism, various inter-networking attack like DDoS etc. become serious issues for various routing protocol e.g. Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). Such attacks make an impact to the performance of system such as delay, more updates, insufficient bandwidth utilizations and loss of valuable signal. In this paper we propose a tunnelling mechanism which is based on the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). BGP is an inter domain routing protocol basically designed to provide loop-free routing links between organizations. BGP is designed to work over a trustable transport layer protocol; it uses Transport Control Protocol TCP port 179 as the transport protocol layer because TCP is a connection-oriented protocol. We have also proposed two theorem to secure the Internet from Domain Name Server (DNS), Distributed Denial of service(DDoS) attacks which is using Border gateway routing protocol, first one to isolate defected region and correct region, suppressed unnecessary updates without hampering any effect on the define path. Secondly, to cut down the route swinging which is responsible to generates hell lot of updates and the paths selected are scrutinized to remove the attacked links. Our simulation shows the methods to eliminate false number of unwanted updates under the influence of the attacks, and isolate the effected part from the network.

318 Centralization of Network using Openflow Protocol. , Ankita Vinod Mandekar and Krishna Chandramouli 
Traditional network is used have distributed nature which face complexities while modifying, monitoring, securing the network. The centralization of network is proving very effective in terms for management, implementation of new applications, monitoring the network. The programmable network using programmable devices helps to implement centralization of network successfully. To reduce the latency in the network the control parameters of control plane are used for making the forwarding decision by the centralized controller. Software Defined Network (SDN) is emerging technology having the centralized policy to design cloud network topology. The abstraction of control plane from data plane is isolating the control parameters from the flow of packets for making an efficient forwarding decision by programmable device. This device is known to be controller; it also reduces the complexities to process the data overhead. The OpenFlow protocol is used for abstraction and transferring the control parameters over secure channel. The protocol enables the enterprise to design well managed and secure cloud. In this paper, the experimental test bed is built which provides the centralized System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) controller in the private cloud. The cloud provides its virtual Platform as a Service (PaaS) to the client by creating multiple Virtual Machine instances on single machine. The Virtual Private Network is created by using the Network Virtualization Generic Routing (NVGRE) tunnelling Protocol for the client to reach up to the hosted platform.
319 Effect of Shear Wall Location on the Linear and Nonlinear Behavior of Eccentrically Loaded Buildings , P. Mary Williams and R. K. Tripathi  
Objectives: To discuss the effect of shear wall and its location on the linear and nonlinear behavior of irregular buildings with different eccentricities. Analysis: The behavior of eccentrically loaded buildings with and without shear wall is compared using linear static, linear dynamic and nonlinear static analysis with the help of a finite element based software. The parameters considered are Base shear, Storey drift, Torsion and Reinforcement in columns and hinge formation in the structure. Findings: The study concludes that provision of a box type shear wall at the core gives the best behavior but it is not desired from architectural point of view. Hence shear wall on the outer edges is more advisable to improve the behavior of asymmetric buildings. The location of shear wall do not have significant effect on the nonlinear behavior except that the position of hinges vary. Novelty: The study of effect of shear wall location in eccentrically loaded structures, especially its nonlinear behaviour gives a more precise idea on provision of shear wall.

323 Obtaining Description for Simple Images using Surface Realization Techniques and Natural Language Processing , C. S. Reddy, B. Janani , S. Arvind Narayanan and E. Mamatha  
This paper aims at developing a simple mechanism to deduce corpora pertaining to an image through various computer vision and natural language processing techniques. The output of the vision detection is combined with the sentence formation approach to get the visual content in textual form. Vision detections are smoothed using a number of approaches to prune undesired combination of words that are semantically incorrect. Descriptions are generated based on syntactic trees and Markov Chains and compared for human likeness based on survey. The results of the survey indicate that the descriptions generated with the help of Markov Chains sound more human like. These generated descriptions can be indexed in lucene and image search can be made more efficient bridging the semantic gap.

326  VoIP over Mobile Wi – Fi Hotspot. , G. Usha Devi, K. Venkata Kaushik , B. Sreeveer and K. Srinivasa Prasad 
Ever since the internet took off as a data network for sending email and browsing websites. The option of putting voice traffic on to the net has been in consideration ever since internet was able to transmit media. This is otherwise called Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). VoIP is implemented in Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANET) but its range is considerably small. This leads to congestion and improper Quality of Service (QoS). Current implementation of VoIP over MANET has issues like hidden and exposed terminal problems. In order for MANET to expand its connectivity, there should be at least one node within its range. As the range of MANET is a disadvantage, distant connectivity is an issue. In this paper, a method has been proposed to use mobile Wireless – Fidelity (Wi-Fi) hotspot instead of MANET for VoIP. For this, mobile nodes are connected within a range of a hotspot network (100 ft.) for audio transmission. This scenario would be simulated using both mobile hotspot and MANET and the results are compared for better understanding. Main aspects like efficient data transmission, QoS and security are taken into account.

Objectives: The primary objective of this study is to assay the resilience in Millennial leader’s personality by preparing a survey instrument which would be useful to organizations to measure the leadership skills, personality traits and their resilience (flexibility). The desideratum is to examine whether this variance poses as threat to today’s workforce. Methodology: The empirical results are presented and a new scale is developed to assay resilience in the personality of Millennial leaders, which includes different stages of descriptive research. Expert opinion was performed among 62 specialists, Exquisite surveys were conducted with 92 Gen Y leaders and final data assimilation was done from 525 Millennial leaders in the I.T industry using stratified proportionate random sampling. Findings: The final results of this study led to the development of a standardized 30-iteminstrument, augmented by construct validity and scale’s reliability. Thus, it can be avouched that it possible to quantify resilience of Millennial leaders; and the personality traits of Millennial leaders explain for a substantial amount of variance (18.1%) in their resilience behavior. Further, Extraverted Millennial leaders agreed that their tendency to be flexible/resilient depends on their personality traits; and they sought to take chances in variating personalities. This posed as a threat to their work profiles, where Gen Y leaders still preferred to pursue this variating resilience in their personality. Therefore, it can be acknowledged that the variation in the resilience of Millennial leader’s personality certainly poses as impendence to the organizations. Applications/Improvements: Even though there are several works published around the personalities of millennials, this paper builds upon the authors’ motive to explore about the flexibility in personality of Gen Y leaders in organizations.

332 Design of Reconfigurable 2-D Linear Feedback Shift Register for Built-In-Self-Testing of Multiple System-on-Chip Cores , Md. Shabaz , Anand Patel, Suraj Iyer, S. Ravi and Harish M. Kittur 
Due to the continual downscaling of technology, System on Chip (SoC) is becoming denser and denser with multiple IP cores within. As the number of cores within a SoC increase, so does the number of faults within the chip. Along with the designing aspect of a chip, design for testability too is a major area of concern. Testing methods like Built-In-Self-Test (BIST) allow the chip to test itself without the need for external testing equipment. Test patterns for BIST are generated using Linear Feedback Shift Register (LFSR) which produces test vectors in a pseudo random manner. This paper concentrates on improving the hardware in terms of area and number of logical gates in the 2-D LFSR used for testing an SoC with multiple IP cores so that vectors in various patterns can be generated using a single reconfigurable 2 Dimensional LFSR. The proposed technique is much more useful for testing System on a Chip with large number of cores as the same configuration network is used to test different SoC cores.

336 Application of Ant Colony Optimization in Tuning a PID Controller to a Conical Tank , K. V. Lakshmi Narayana, Vaegae Naveen Kumar, M. Dhivya and R. Prejila Raj 
In this paper, PID controller with ant colony optimization is developed for the conical tank. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is a recently developed meta-heuristic approach for solving hard combinational optimization problems. Each individual ant can find a solution or at least part of a solution to the optimization problem on its own, but only when many ants work together they can find the optimal solution. Since the optimal solution can only be found through the global cooperation of all the ants in a colony, it is an emergent result of such cooperation. The results of PID controller with ant colony optimization provides a remarkable improvement in tracking a given set point, when compared with the Ziegler Nichols closed loop tuning and feed forward plus feedback controller tuning methods.

338 Suitability of Partial Replacement of Pulverized Plastic as Fine Aggegate in Cement Concrete , R. Dharmaraj and G. Iyappan 
Objectives: Disposal of plastic was a major problem in the present era, as the usage of plastics was growing day by day and it takes hundreds of year for plastic material to degrade. The effective ways to recycle and reuse of plastics are being formulated. Methods: Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) Bags was taken into consideration as it was easily available and had low density than other type. The used plastic bags were collected, ground in to smaller components. Melted and pulverized in order to get granules of plastic of about 1 mm size. The density of the pulverized was found to be 920 Kg/m³ and its specific gravity was 0.89. Seive analysis were carried out and about 95% of the plastic bags were found to be in the range of 1-1.15 mm. 45 Nos of 100 × 100 × 100 mm cement concrete cubes of M20 mix were cast for 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% fine aggregate being replaced with pulverized plastic material. Volumetric proportioning was adopted instead of design mix since the low density of plastic bags material was too low. Workability test, mechanical properties were determined. Findings: The test results revealed that the compression strength of concrete at 28th days of conventional concrete is 23.56 N/mm². By partial replacement of 5% of Burned LDPE bags in concrete the 28th days increased by about 0.36 N/mm² when compared to conventional concrete. By partial replacement of 10% of burned LDPE bags in concrete the 28th days increased by about 1.02 N/mm² when compared to conventional concrete. By partial replacement of 15% of burned LDPE bags in concrete at 28th day increased by about 2.27 N/mm² for when compared to conventional concrete. By partial replacement of 20% of Burned LDPE bags in concrete the 28th days increased by about 1.16 N/mm² when compared to conventional concrete. Thus it is inferred that partial replacement of Burned LDPE bags up to 15% can be adopted. Novelty/Improvement: It is thereby suggested that utilization of this Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) bags in concrete will reduce the requirement for convectional fine aggregate thereby resulting in conservation of natural resources.

Findings: Important observations are found from the graphs of frequency and ultrasonic pulse velocity. The frequency and ultrasonic pulse velocity peak values were continuously found decreasing under the increase in the compressive load. After initial crack formation with the further increase in load the frequency was found increasing trend but with showing a small increased value. Whereas the ultrasonic pulse velocity was found reducing trend in nature. These plots give the clear indication of crack formation. Application/Improvements: These graphs are used for comparison of variation of frequency and ultrasonic pulse velocity to predict the undamaged and damaged state of concrete under compression. A mathematical expression is developed between compressive strength, frequency and ultrasonic pulse velocity

Findings: There is an average of 30% and 34% decrease in moments for infilled frames when compared to a bare frame. The percentage of decrease in moments increases to an average of 71% when the column is removed. Similarly, the deflection for infilled frames decreases by35% when compared with bare frame and only 17% increase when infills are provided with openings on removal of column there is average of 88% decrease in deflection for infilled frames when compared with bare frame. It shows that the presence of infilled frames will delay the progressive collapse when compared to bare frames. Application/Improvements: The study can be extended to the non-linear range and also to find its dynamic response.
350 An Ontological Approach for Originating Data Services with Hazy Semantics , R. Saranya, S. Gowri, S. Monisha and S. Vigneshwari  
Objective: The tremendous growth in volume of data is increasing the complexity of data handling. The existing content based search is not only complex and expensive, but also leads to poor processing and unacceptable latency for massive amount of data. Data accessed from large dataset using existing approach will slow down the query response rate. High resource cost is the severe performance bottleneck caused by query operations. The semantic based search can be carried out on the data, In order to reduce the complexity in data handling. The proposed method uses Resource Description Framework (RDF) with Ontology Web Language (OWL). Thus the RDF is used for non domain based search and OWL is used for domain based search. The non domain based search provides the composition of best data services from master RDF. The triplets from different RDF are combined to form master RDF. And the domain based search is one which provides recommendations for the user based on their search query. The main objective of this approach is to provide semantic search using RDF and recommendation using OWL. The search result will be the high similarity result sets as the method uses the combinational RDF to form large master RDF.Statistical Analysis/Methods: The user is provided with two methods of searching which is domain based search and non domain based search. The domain based search is one which provides recommendation for the user based on the search query. And the non domain based search originates the data services from master RDF. Agriculture data set is chosen as a sample data set for domain based search which can be extended further for any other domain. The web services which contain general information about the world and also related web services is chosen as a data set for non domain based search. Findings: The statistical analysis of ontology based semantic search with keyword based search produced the precision value of 0.8 out of 1.0 using the search results obtained from both semantic search and keyword based search. Applications/Improvements: The application can be further improved by adding realistic data sets and increasing the size of the database. The domain based approach is not restricted only to agriculture but it can also be extended to some other applications like Health care, pattern recognition and so on.

Statistical based similarity measure is an important issue as compared to similarity computation in many fields such as, Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval, Ontology Mapping, Knowledge Acquisition and Question Answering System. Semantic web has been used to present the structure knowledge representation between questions and answer keywords. Ontology can be used as important proposal to enable semantic similarity between keywords present in the question and answer pairs. Findings: The proposed frame work investigate, how the statistical based similarity measure used in these system helps to improve the performance of the QA system for all Wh-questions. We find the keywords having most similar meaning will return the answer as the final answer. The best performance is achieved by extracting the relevant snippets information form Google search engine. The performance of the system will change as the retrieval of the document is increases beyond 15; this could indicate that restriction in the retrieval of document is helps to optimize the performance of the system. Application/Improvements: This frame work is applicable to all type of search engines which helps to finds most relevant answer to user questions. In future, we implement our frame work for questions having more than five keywords.

363 Self Sensing Concrete using Carbon Fibre for Health Monitoring of Structures under Static loading , K. S. Sathyanarayanan and N. Sridharan
Background/Objective: To find an easy method to health monitor structures. Method: Self sensing or smart behavior has been observed in mortar or concrete with the addition of small amounts (0.2 to 0.5% by volume of cement) of short (5mm length) carbon fibres. It is seen that there is an increase in electrical resistance on loading upto crack propagation or fracture. On reaching the inelastic stage, the resistance change is not reversible. Findings: A method is developed which can be used in place of, often used strain gage technique or fibre optic technique for health monitoring of structures. There is an increase in resistance during fibre pull out in the elastic range. The change in elastic resistance was measured by a four probe method and was seen to be reversible for elastic deformation. Also, the crack propagation and fibre breakage of the specimen can be identified by irreversible resistance change. The stress vs strain and resistance vs strain graphs when plotted show similarity. Application: This phenomenon can be made use of to find the real time weight of vehicles in traffic and finding stress values of a loaded structure etc.
364  Reliable Connectionless Transport Protocol for Fast Message Delivery , Pranav Patel , Rutul Shah, Chirag Patel and V. Vijayarajan 
TCP and UDP are the most used transport layer protocols in computer networks. These two protocols are used for almost all types of data transmission including files, messages, real-time streaming of media etc. In cases where loss of a single data unit then it makes the entire data transfer useless such as file transfer, TCP is used because it ensures reliability. UDP is unreliable and can be used where little loss is acceptable and sender does not need a conformation of successful delivery to the receiver. In past decade a large variety of network applications has emerged requiring different requirements for transport layer protocol. Currently in cases where a message needs to be sent to a destination and sender needs confirmation of successful delivery of the message TCP must be used. However TCP requires 3 way handshakes and has large over head of header bytes which may be not required in such cases. This paper proposes a transport layer protocol that is connection less like UDP and has very less header overhead bytes and ensures reliability of transmission. This protocol saves from connection establishment phase and overhead of additional header bytes. From calculation it can be observed that this protocol improves efficiency of transmission in certain cases.

366 Behaviour of Reinforced Concrete Building Frame Subjected to Different Types of Blast Loading , Dasari Sudheer Kumar , Pallavi Rai, Rajneesh Kumar, Somnath Karmakar and Showmen Saha  
Objectives: To assess the behaviour of reinforced concrete building frames under different types of blast loads. Methods: The method adopted for the analysis was ConWep blast load method. This is a computational method and is based on collection of conventional weapon effects calculations developed by U.S Dept. of Army 1998. The finite element modelling of the building was carried out by using the standard hydrocode software LS_DYNA_971 R 7.1. The charge weight was considered as 226.8 kg of TNT explosive. Findings: Building structures are constructed throughout the world in accordance with building codes. The available codes lack substantial design considerations to prevent or minimize the impact caused by any sort of blast. The attacks by terrorists mainly focus on the iconic buildings like school buildings, government offices and hospitals etc. which affects the safety of the structure and causes loss of lives. So before the design it is required to know the behaviour of the entire building and its critical elements to design to resists the blast loads. In this study, the material models used for the representation of concrete and steel are CSCM_CONCRETE and PIECEWISE_LINEAR_ PLASTICITY respectively. The details of the modelling of building and its progressive collapse, material properties are also discussed. Improvements: The codes which are available for blast design are not provided the different types of failure conditions, for this reason this study was conducted and the failure conditions are observed.

368 An Architecture of Class Loader System in Java Bytecode Obfuscation , Magesh Vasudevan, Shah Pratik , C. Gopichand and Anthoniraj Amalanathan 
Obfuscators are tool to make the software Intellectual property protected. The protection is from the reverse engineers who crack the code for Intellectual Property or license benefits. This paper discusses about obfuscation with Java Byte Code; Java compiles the code into byte code that runs on Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The byte code is more expressive than the object code. The byte code in name of .class files can be transported to any machine that can run JVM. The aim is to obfuscate the java byte code such that the reverse engineered code is not understandable by making ambiguous view approach. The approach changes the flow such that it is functional identical but difficult in understanding the function or the approach the code has built upon. There are many ways the code can be obfuscated such as control flow, encryption of string literals, multiple overloaded methods. The approach in this paper is making the string literal null such that the literals used cannot be identified. This can be enhanced further by using java class loader where the class name is String; when the string is found empty in the reverse engineered code the decompiled code will be of no understanding because the classes called itself will not be identified. The Java byte code engineering library used is ASM.

371 Evaluation of Response Reduction Factor of Irregular Reinforced Concrete Framed Structures , Divya Brahmavrathan  and C. Arunkumar  
Background/Objectives: Most of the seismic codes used today, incorporate the nonlinear response of a structure by the provision of an appropriate response reduction factor ‘R’ so that a linear elastic force based approach can be used for design. The value of R factor varies from 3 to 5 in IS 1893 for RC moment resisting frames, but it does not provide information on the components of R factor. This study focuses on the evaluation of the actual value of R for stepped buildings. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Three dimensional models with varying number of storeys in each step were created, consisting of both ordinary RC moment resisting frame and special RC moment resisting frame having 3, 6 and 9 storeys. Nonlinear static pushover analysis is carried out on the analytical models using finite element analysis software SAP 2000. The R factor components such as ductility and over strength factors were computed from the results obtained from the nonlinear static pushover analysis and finally the response reduction factor is calculated for all the models. The pattern of variation in R factor with the increase in the number of stories is investigated for both OMRF and SMRF in this study. Findings: The actual value of the R factor was found to be less than the value assumed during the design process and its value was found to decrease with the increase in the number of storeys. A certain percentage reduction in the response reduction factor has to be considered for irregular buildings. Application/Improvements: This study is focused only on the influence of height on the value of response reduction factor. Further research is needed considering a wider set of parameters.

Background/Objectives: Molybdenum, phenol and diesel are toxic to organism, and are part of global pollution. Their removal using microorganisms with multiple detoxification ability is being intensely sought as a cleaner and economic approach. Methods/Statistical analysis: A soil suspension was spread plated on a minimal salts media supplemented with molybdenum. Blue colonies, indicating molybdenum reduction was then screened for phenol and diesel degradation capabilities. Findings: A molybdenum-reducing bacterium locally isolated showed the ability to grow on phenol and diesel. The bacterium required pHs of between 5.8 and 6.3 and temperatures of between 30 and 40o C for optimal reduction. Among the carbon sources tested for supporting reduction, glucose was the best. A critical concentration of phosphate at just 5 mM was required, while molybdenum (sodium molybdate) was required between 15 and 25 mM. The absorption spectrum of the Mo-blue produced showed a characteristic maximum peak at 865 nm. The reduction of molybdenum was inhibited by the ions mercury, copper, chromium, lead and silver by 78.9, 78.4, 77.4, 53.5 and 36.8%, respectively. Analysis using phylogenetic analysis identifies the bacterium as Enterobacteriaceae bacterium strain DRY7. Growth on phenol and diesel as carbon sources showed that the optimal concentrations supporting growth was between 300 and 400 mg/L and between 300 and 500 mg/L, respectively. Application/Improvements: The capacity of this bacterium to detoxify a number of toxicants is an important property or bioremediation of soils contaminated with multiple toxicants.

376 Ontology Centric Access Control Mechanism for Enabling Data Protection in Cloud , M. Auxilia and K. Raja  
Background: Cloud computing provides access to a large scale of resources. Access control is the indispensable requirement for protecting cloud resource. A cloud service provider is responsible for enforcing access control and they normally rely upon conventional access control mechanisms. Methods: These access control policies, consider the access control primitives in separation which may lead to abuse of access control. These aforesaid problems motivated our research to center around the provision of access control by considering the association among the three access control primitives namely the user making access request, resource upon which access is requested and operation performed by the user on the resource. Hence Ontology Centric Access Control (OCAC) is being proposed in this paper. Findings: This OCAC circulates authorization rules among the primitives of access control say subject, object and action by reducing the various associations among the associations among the access control elements; it is observed that there is less chance for security violation. Ontology is used since it reduces the times of agreement while exchanging the authorization policies across the security domains. For reducing the number of statements and rules in policy base, subsumption property is used. This reduces the space and time complexity. Applications/Improvements: We are applying our work to protect bank data as banks are embracing clouds to store huge data by cutting their IT costs.

Background/Objective: Civil engineering structure resting on expansive soils needs more attention since it causes undesirable engineering behavior when the soil comes in contact with water. The areas consisting of expansive soil need a proper stabilization method to solve the site problems faced by the civil engineers. Pavements constructed on such soil shows signs of damage continuously during the service life of the pavement eventually increase the maintenance costs. Stabilization of these soils is a usual practice for improving the strength. Methods: In this work an attempt was made on the utilization of Phospho Gypsum (PG) with soil by adding various percentages of 2, 4, and 6% in soils and accessed their geotechnical behaviour for different curing periods. The effects of PG treatment on the microstructure and strength improvement of compacted expansive clays are studied based on Microstuctural analysis and Unconfined Compression tests for different curing periods of 0, 14 and 28 days. Findings: UCS performed on these mixes and identified that addition of phosphogypsum attained high strength with the increasing percent of phosphogypsum in soils. From the test results, it was observed that the UCS peak stresses were increases to 162kPa and 336kPa from 75 kPa and 122 kPa for soil samples S1 and S2 at 28days of curing. X-ray Diffraction and Scanning Electron Microscopy were carried out for microlevel analysis and the results confirmed the presence of minerals and cementation nature in the treated soil. Improvement: From the experimental study, it is observed that the treatment of the expansive soil with the addition of Industrial waste material Phosphogypsum is more efficient in subgrade modification and other geotechnical applications.

Background: In the recent internet world, the watermarking security dispute has incurring design challenges on watermarking techniques. This article has anticipated a robust and secure watermarking pattern, based on SC-LWT-SVD which is projected so as to challenge the numerous serious watermarking security disputes, i.e., copyright protection through encryption, unsanctioned interpretation, false positive recognition, and numerous prerogatives of tenure complications. Methods: Initially SC-LWT is accomplished to split the input values, in order to acquire approximate coefficients. The SVD is applied on LWT coefficients to originate singular constants. Findings: The proposed SC–LWT– SVD constructed watermarking arrangement is verified with numerous malicious and un-malicious outbreaks and the experimental outcomes illustrate that it comprehends the security prerequisites which resolves false positive detection and copyright protection. Furthermore, this pattern is deliberated to blind scheme. Application: The simulation model is accustomed to verify the viability of the anticipated pattern and its forcefulness in contradiction of numerous outbreaks and to link with some earlier systems.

Background/Objectives: This research analyzes waveforms of surge and discharge voltage in the plasma ignition and point ignition through realization of plasma spark by self-producing a plasma generator apparatus. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The components including batteries, ignition pulse generator (self-produced), pencil type ignition coil, iridium ignition plug, and nonresistance ignition plug were used in the experimental device. The experimental method involved assessing the gap change of the ignition plug and the engine rotation count by setting the range of measurement from 1,200 rpm to 5,200 rpm. By connecting an additional device, impedance value increased due to the influence from the internal elements and components. Findings: The plasma ignition discharge energy discharges plasma completion from 0.75 to 1.5 ms to show that the point and plasma have different energy characteristics and when the ignition plug gap is increased, the energy characteristics of discharge voltage increased. However, the starting point of the discharge responded 2.5 ms faster compared to the point ignition due to the plasma discharge point delay of 0.75 compared to the point ignition. By connecting an additional device, impedance value increased due to the influence from the internal elements and components. This helped to find the cause behind the relatively delayed 3rd phase amplification’s plasma discharge starting point in comparison to the point ignition. Application/Improvements: We believe that better result will be drawn when the electrode diameter and formation are re-engineered with the optimized volume change of plasma produced between the ignition plug electrodes.
382 Simulation of Brick Infill and Effect of Openings on RC Frames using ANSYS.  , Prashant Motwani, Rajendhiran¹ and A. S. Santhi 
An infill frame is defined as a dual system, which consists of bricks or concrete blocks filling the inter-planar voids between lower and upper beam and space between side columns of reinforced or steel frame. Despite the fact that infill enhances both strength and stiffness of the moment resisting frames; their role is ignored in the design due to insufficient knowledge of the composite behaviour of infill and frames. It is credible, that a major portion of the lateral load is shared by the infill. This paper deals with translating existing experimental data into analytical methods. To understand the behaviour of brick masonry, a G+1 structure was modelled in ANSYS and results were obtained. The present study is also aimed at finding the effect of openings in brick walls and captive column effect. When infill walls are omitted in the bottom storey, a soft storey is formed compared to stiffer stories at top. By response spectrum analysis it has been proved that the structural time period for frame with infill decreases by 2 to 3 times compared to frames without infill. The results showed that the soft storey building frame attracts 40% more shear force than frame excluding soft storey effect. The variation in time period at different mode shapes, with and without infill is presented in the paper. The phenomenon of captive column was replicated and formation of short column is shown in the pilot study
383 An Implementation of a User Location-based Lighting Collaboration System , Young-Ho Kim , Sook-Youn Kwon and Jae-Hyun Lim
Background/Objectives: This study proposes a user location-based lighting collaboration system that guarantees the target illuminance and uniformity at local position of the user in an indoor space and minimizes energy consumption. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The proposed system is divided into the dynamic cell positioning process and lighting collaboration process. The dynamic cell positioning process finds the specific location of a user based on the RSSI signal intensity of the BLE beacon and smartphone that the user carries. The lighting collaboration process calculates each output of the surrounding lights in consideration of the target illuminance at the user position and then performs dimming control accordingly. Findings: To evaluate the performance of the proposed system, this study includes two control groups - two similar systems - and compares the target illuminance, uniformity, and lighting energy consumption. Control Group A is a system that comprehensively controls all light/light fixture installed in that space while Control Group B divides the space to sub-zones and groups lightings in each zone for controlling. The system performance evaluation result shows that the lighting energy consumption of the proposed system was 1,804W while those of Control Group A and Control Group B were 2,644W and 2,511W, which indicates a savings of as much as 31% and 28%, respectively. In addition, the proposed system satisfied a uniformity requirement as high as 0.8 while maintaining the target illuminance. Application/Improvements: The result indicates that the proposed system had energy saving effect as much as 31% compared to Control Group A and 28% compared to Control Group B.
384 Implentation of Pi Controller for Level Process using Non Contact Sensor , Ch. Sai Vamsi  , Manoj Mohan, Naveen Chandrakar and K. R. Prabhu 
The accurate information about the fluid level in the process station is of much significance in order to maintain a desired level in the process tank by controlling the process through various controllers as the primary objective of all the industries is to maintain the level at desired set points in spite of the external disturbances. The contact type sensors which are used for sensing the level in the process tank usually gets affected by corrosion which results in reduced life span of sensor and in-turn gives a poor and in-efficient performance, and also loss of accuracy in determination of the fluid level. The use of non contact type sensor will be greatly useful in finding the fluid level in the process tank and helps in calculating the error with regard to the desired level and helps in controlling the level by means of the PI controller. The use of PI controller would result in maintaining accurate desired level by removing the offset error. Therefore the ultrasonic transceiver which in this case used as a non contact level sensor would have a good life span as compared to the contact type sensor by reducing the effects of corrosion to a minimum level.
385 Realization of Multi-User Tangible Non-Glasses Mixed Reality Space , A-Leum Jung, Min-Geun Kim , Woo-Cheol Shin and Kyounghak Lee  
Background/Objectives: Studies on convergent space, where multiple users can participate simultaneously, are lacking despite the spatial characteristic of mixed reality space where several people can coexist. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Based on the Unity3D engine, four-sided mapping was done using a multi camera in a CAVE type space. An autostereoscopic 3D image was provided by forming a parallax barrier using binocular disparity, and a space capable of multiple user participation was formed by implementing a multi-tracking system using Kinect. Findings: The development of technologies that allow autostereoscopic virtual reality and mixed reality experiences are currently underway, but a technology that can implement a mixed reality space for multiple users to experience virtual reality without special glasses in a real spatial environment is still in the development stage. The present study created an autostereoscopic 3D environment for resolving user discomfort, and implemented a multi-tracking system aimed at multiple user participation. As a result, the study was limited in that the definition of the screen differs depending on the light in accordance with the characteristics of beam projectors and that the restrictions to CAVE space only allows a restricted number of personnel to participate. Application/Improvements: Active research must be conducted on contents that are usable in mixed reality space implemented for vitalizing virtual reality space research.

389 Enhanced Performance of a DVR using Mixed Cascaded Multilevel Inverter , K. A. Siddartha , N. Manikanta Babu, Y. Suresh and M. Varun Mohan 
This proposed paper studies the design and performance of a new ‘Dynamic voltage restorer’ (DVR) using a new hybrid 7 level PWM inverter. The new multilevel inverter is a combination of the capacitor clamped and the cascaded H-bridge type multilevel inverters. This new topology provides different levels of output voltages and high modularity. In the paper, the sag or swell are detected in a transmission line and the voltage is injected from the multilevel inverter through a boost transformer. Simulation results in matlab show that the performance of the new mixed multicell inverter is better than the traditional MLIs and normal inverters with the advantages like absence of the filter.
390 Overcoming the Low Efficiency of Box Type Solar Cookers , S. Paranthaman 
The solar cooking is not so popular in India owing to the reason of prolonged cooking time of conventional solar cookers. The conventional solar cookers work on the principle of green house effect. Here the incident rays fall on the top of the lid which is usually painted with black. The delay can be attributed mainly to the air gap in the top portion of the utensil between the lid and the food. Convection loss also delays the cooking process. This paper suggests a cost effective Fresnel reflective concentrator to concentrate the solar beam to the bottom of the utensil.

Both EGR and LPG are controlled by a fuzzy control system to improve the performance of the dual fuel engine.
392 Developing an IP Address Usage Measurement Index: The Case of South Korea , Ha-Young Kim , Sung-Kyu Park and Tae-Sung Kim 
Background/Objectives: IPv6 adoption index of existing has a limit to survey. Also, the index can’t know actual usage because they measure readiness. Therefore, we improved the index to IPv6 usage measurement. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The usage measurement methods of IPv6 and case studies in domestic and international were examined. Then using the Delphi method, evaluation and verification of previous IPv6 measurement indices were conducted. Findings: The final improved IPv6 usage measurement index is categorized by ‘USER’ and ‘CONTENTS’. The USER indices are indices to measure terminals that are actually using IPv6. The CONTENTS indices are an index that measures whether content service providers support IPv6 for actual use. Meanwhile, infrastructure hierarchy can be the most appropriate measurement points to determine the current state of IPv6 during communication. But accurate measurement is currently not possible in terms of traffic flow. So, the index were deleted. Application/Improvements: There is a need to develop an accurate measurement of IoT terminal, mobile application and PC software. Also, developing method to the traffic measurement in infrastructure is needed.

To achieve this, the study presents the problems of current bicycle roads and their improvement plan by big data analysis which includes the relationship between the installation rate of bicycle roads and the bicycle accident rate, the location of bicycle roads, the location of bicycle amenities, bicycle satisfaction, bicycle use statistics, and population data. The generalization of bicycle roads to regular residences implies a construction by considering the connectivity and stability of bicycle roads, but atypical infrastructure construction has played a part in increased damages resulting from the ignorance of bicycle users to traffic safety regulations. The perception of bicycle users must change and the building of bicycle roads must be based on people centered transportation infrastructure. Application/Improvements: The results of this study can be used as part of improvement of bicycle road accidents by central government and local governments. The results seem to be applied in policy, such as building bike paths centered around pedestrians.

396 A Framework for detecting Malicious Nodes in Mobile Adhoc Network , Y. Haripriya, K. V. Bindu Pavani  , S. Lavanya and V. Madhu Viswanatham 
A wireless network consists of nodes which cooperate with each other for transmission. In adhoc network the nodes are mobile forming temporary network dynamically. These networks don’t provide special security mechanics where attacks are highly possible through malicious nodes. Malicious nodes don’t cooperate with other nodes and acts selfishly by reserving the resources for its own use. This decreases the performance of the routing protocol in the network. In order to increase the performance of the routing the malicious nodes has to be detected and that route has to be prevented from routing. In the previous paper the malicious nodes are just simulated and analyzed. In this paper the malicious nodes are detected in prior to the routing using consensus based algorithm and then that route is prevented for transmitting data between nodes in mobile adhoc networks.

398  Android Application for Ticket Booking and Ticket Checking in Suburban Railways , Subarnarekha Ghosal, Shalini Chaturvedi, Akshay Taywade and N. Jaisankar 
Technological development has resulted in a boundary free digital world. This development has resulted in transaction through virtual money instead of real ones. One of the most popular forms of online trading is E-ticketing. Android Phones can reduce the trouble of the customers to stand in queue and book the tickets. With the advent of the smart cards the overhead of waiting for ticket was reduced but the user should always remember to carry the card with him. Moreover one has to pay attention that it is not misplaced or stolen. After that came E-Ticketing where passengers have to carry a SMS or a printout of the ticket booked online. But that required laptops or desktop for booking. Thus came into front the use of smart phone application where carrying a smart phone will do all the work. Thus the introduction of smart phone application overcomes all the drawbacks of the earlier systems. This paper deals with the development and implementation of smart phone application which is more effective and simple than current ticketing system. The “Android Suburban Ticket (ASR)” can be bought easily anytime, anywhere and ticket will be present in the customer’s phone in the form of “Quick Response Code”. GPS facility is used for validation of the ticket at the source and deletion at the destination. The information for each user is stored in a CLOUD database for security purpose which is unavailable in the current suburban railway system. Also the ticket checker is provided with an application to search for the user’s ticket with the ticket number in the cloud database for checking purposes.
399 Analyzing the Appropriateness of ‘Functions’ in the Physical Computing  System Domain in Informatics , An Young Hee, Kim Ja Mee, Lee Won Gyu  
Background/Objectives: The informatics curriculum, which has been used with focus on ICT use since 2010, is changing. Information education is emphasizing the maker education in which learners make projects for themselves. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: As part of the maker education, personal computing was also added to the revised informatics curriculum, and ‘functions’ were proposed. Findings: This study had experts analyze whether the ‘functions’ proposed in the physical computing of the revised informatics curriculum are appropriate for accomplishing the intended purpose. The analysis result showed that designing and programming were appropriate functions in all domains consisting of suitability, importance and necessity, and cooperating was not playing the role as a function in any domain. Some viewed programming and implementing as similar functions, and managing were too conspicuously low in suitability and importance to be viewed as functions that can be expected after leaning in high schools. Improvements/Applications: The purpose of this study is to clearly propose functions to be performed after learning in future information education through analysis of physical computing ‘functions’.
400 Understanding of Quantum Tomography for Determining the Superposed and Entangled States in Quantum Computing , Manoj Singh Rajput 
In this brief review paper aims at the understanding of experimental and theoretical work done so far on the quantum tomography and its relevance to quantum computing. In order to determine ortho normal and entangled states the procedure adopted is explained and understanding of two superposition states in a qubit is defined. The concept of the Bloch sphere to understand the reconstruction of quantum states is also discussed. Attempt has been made to understand various mathematical techniques used by other authors to determine state superposition by efficient algorithms such as Shore’s and Grover’s algorithms. The basic experimental technique used in quantum tomography to experimentally determine the orthogonal and superposition states uses homodyne balanced detection which is discussed and described in detail here. Also explain a simple procedure for writing and reading a qubit. A complete characterization procedure is discussed for any quantum state of two orthogonally polarized states and the paper gives a systematic procedure to collect the necessary data.

Objective: In this study we report the antibacterial and cytotoxic activity of the fungi isolated from Little Rann of Kutch, India. Methods: Antibacterial activity of crude extracts of 35 fungal isolates was assessed at an initial concentration of 40µg/ml against Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli. Promising fungal isolates were identified by their morphology. Extracts of identified isolates were further tested at varying concentrations (10-40µg/ml) against Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus apart from K. pneumoniae and E. coli. Cytotoxic activity was assessed against cancer cell line MCF7. Phenol, flavonoid and alkaloid estimation was done to understand the fungi’s chemoprofile. Findings: In preliminary screening, six isolates showed significant activity against K. pneumoniae (14-17 mm) and E. coli (14-22 mm). These were identified as Aspergillus flavus, A. cremeus, A. versicolor, A. terreus, Penicillium purpurogenum and Eurotium amstelodami. On further evaluation of fungal extracts against four test pathogens, A. versicolor was found to be the most effective (8-11 mm), followed by A. terreus (8-10 mm) and A. cremeus (8-10 mm) at 10µg/ml each. A. versicolor and P. purpurogenum were found to be most cytotoxic, with IC50 values of 6.26 and 6.30 respectively, followed by A. flavus, E. amstelodami, A. cremeus and A. terreus. Phenolic content was highest in A. versicolor (268.77±0.18 µg/mg GAE); flavonoid and alkaloid were maximum in P. purpurogenum - 91.17±0.44 µg/mg QE and 89.13±0.28 µg/mg PNE, respectively. Improvements/Applications: Six fungi isolated from Little Rann of Kutch, India, hold tremendous potential as a source of novel antimicrobials and cytotoxics. The results warrant more exhaustive bioassays and identification of active principles.

404 Context-Aware Abnormality Monitoring Service for Care-Needing Persons Using a Probabilistic Model , Sol Ji Kang, Kyung Mi Lee and Keon Myung Lee
Background/Objectives: Care-needing persons usually have routine life patterns in their visiting places and routes. Probabilistic models are useful tools to capture the inherent patterns for care-needing persons from a collection of data and to make inference for uncertain situation. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A dynamic Bayesian network model is proposed to capture the traveling patterns for care-needing person. A collection of traveling data having location, date, and battery charge state information is used to train the dynamic Bayesian network model, in which the training travel data are preprocessed to filter out noises using a smoothing filter. The model makes probabilistic inference for the latent random variables on the fly with respect to the arriving captured sensor data. To conduct the probabilistic inference, the Rao-Blackwellized particle filter is used for fast execution. To take protective steps at potentially abnormal situations, the context-based service rules are defined that specify what to do in which situations the care-needing person is. Findings: The situations of interest are evaluated based on the deviation of the inferred probability distribution from the trained ones regarding the latent random variables. The service rules enable to realize value-added services such abnormal state alerting, abnormality notification to stakeholders, and situational information collection at abnormal states for future forensic or tracking. A real data set has been collected from a young student and the proposed method has been trained and tested in an implemented prototype system for young child care. In the experiments for a 6 weeks data set, the method detected all new test routes successfully when the deviation distance is greater than about 20 meters due to the limited precision of the GPS sensors. Improvements/Applications: The proposed model can be applied to context-aware abnormality service for care-needing persons like young children, mentally ill or disabled persons, and elderly persons are exposed to various dangers in daily life.

407  Performance Analysis of MAC Layer Scheduling Schemes for IMM Applications Over High Speed Wireless Campus Network in IEEE802.11e.  , M. K. Alam , S. A. Latif, M. Akter, M. Y. Arafat and S. Hakak 
n IMM traffic, while establishing a voice or video conversation, the sender and the receiver (the participants) should be mutually benefited by ensuring QoS like minimum data loss, sharing sufficient bandwidth and achieving high throughput over the WCN. To improve the network performance, scheduling mechanism is a challenging issue in the transmission of IMM traffic and it still needs to be solved over WCN. This paper aims to employ three different MAC layer scheduling mechanisms such as FIFO, RED and WRED for analysing the performance over the network, based on variation of traffic load in IEEE802.11e, and to evaluate the proposed schedulers’ performance using different performance metrics in WCN. Here, the traffic load is varied by increasing the packet size and the traffic arrival rate, respectively. In order to analyse the network performance, the simulation has been done in QualNET 5.1 simulator. In the simulator, the mobility model is chosen as ‘Random Waypoint’ to change the node position randomly and the application as CBR. Simulation results show that increasing the packet size enables RED and WRED schedulers to perform better than FIFO in terms of all the performance metrics. On the other hand, increasing the traffic arrival rate helps to enhance the performance of the FIFO scheduler compared to the FIFO scheduling mechanism in the previous case. It is conclusive through the performance analyses that all three schedulers perform comparatively better when the traffic arrival rate is increased compared to increasing the packet size.
408 Forming Analysis of Bellows by Hydroforming Method , Kwang-Soo Lee and Key-Sun Kim   
Background/Objectives: Recently, problems of noise produced in the vehicle body are emerging. The apparatus for discharging exhaust gas produced after combustion should suitably absorb vibration and noise from the engine. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: The workpiece was used AISI 316. Characteristics shown under an internal pressure of 8~12MPa and a die speed of 9~235mm/sec were observed. With an assumption that all external conditions were the same, internal pressure due to forming-oil and speeds of die and punch were controlled. Meshes were generated in a total element number of 9,282. For plastic finite elements analysis, DEFORM 2D as the specialized plasticity code of US was employed. Findings: It was shown to be affected by internal pressures rather than by the speeds of the punch and die. Crease was affirmed to be produced in a stable manner from the minimum internal pressure of 10MPa. The gap between die and crease was shown to be smaller, the higher the pressure. And it was shown to be smaller as the speed was increased. Although formability is improved with an increase in the speeds of the punch and die, produced equivalent stresses were determined to be increased. The equivalent stress produced in the crease did not exhibit a large amount of variation as a function of internal pressure and die speed. However, as the center part of the bellows was approached, smaller equivalent stresses were observed, and while larger stresses were produced, the closer it was to the punch. Similar tendency was also shown for the load acting upon die. Therefore, it appears that speed of punch and acting load should be carefully considered in production of bellows. Application/Improvements: Characteristics of plasticity according to each case were identified, and parameters were secured allowing a comparative analysis with experimental data through future experiments.
409 Simultaneous Coordinated Design of Power System Stabilizer 3 Band (PSS3B) and SVC by using Hybrid Big Bang Big Crunch Algorithm in Multi-Machine Power System.  , S. Jalili  and R. Effatnejad 
Power System Stabilizers (PSS) are appropriate for nominal conditions of networks and can induce the required damping; but, with changes in the working condition, systems will encounter some difficulties. Power System Stabilizers 3 Band (PSS3B) as another type of stabilizers shows better results with changes in the working conditions of systems. On the other hand, after determining the remarkable result of Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) equipment in oscillation damping, nowadays, this equipment is increasingly used in power systems. Regarding the nonlinearity of power systems, it is not appropriate to use linear methods for calculating their parameters. In this paper, Hybrid Big Bang-Big Crunch (HBBBC) algorithm was applied for consistently designing PSS3B parameters in four generators of a two-area 11 and control parameters of static VAR compensator considered in this network. Then, to investigate the effect of changing system conditions on stability, working conditions of generators were changed in two steps and a comparison was made between PSS and PSS3b and the calculated parameters in the initial mode.
410 First report of Geochemical Characteristics of the Sangan Manganese Occurrence, Northeast Khash (Iran). , Mahmoudreza Kahrazehi  , Mohammad Lotfi , Majid Ghaderi  , Mohammad Mohajjel  and Mohammadreza Jafari 
The Sangan manganese deposit is located 28 km northeast of the Khash city (Southeast of Taftan volcano) in the Sistan & Baluchistan province. Structurally and lithologically,this depositlies in the central part of Iranian flysch zone. The ore body is layer in shape and lies above the Shalewith intercalation meta sandstone -lithic tuffs oftheQuaternary volcanic units contact and is completely hosted within dark gray to black lithic tuffs and in places interlinks with the dark gray to black lithic tuffs, so that the lithic tuffs play role keybed (line exploration) of manganese ore in the region. The geochemistry characteristics of the Sangan deposit was studied by means of major oxide, trace and Rare Earth Element (REE) contents and the origin of mineralization was discussed. The relatively high Al concentrations (5.95 to 7.22 wt.%, average = 6.61) in the ore of Sangan Mn deposit might result from lithic tuffs, which are the host rocks of the ore. Low titanium values (0.24 to 0.36 wt.%, average = 0.31)indicate limited clastic material entry during mineralization. In chondrite normalized REE graphics in all ore samples were characterized by slight negative Ce (0.10 to 0.11, average = 0.11) and negative Eu (0.18 to 0.22, average = 0.20) anomalies. The negative Ce anomaly was typical to hydrothermal deposits and negative Eu anomaly indicates contamination from the continental crust and or sediment contribution via dehydration. The available data like; Mn:Fe (average 4.07), relatively high Ba (average 508,50), Co:Ni (average 0.18), Co:Zn (average 0.34), total REE (average 117.94), LREE > HREE, LREE:HREE (average 10.33), La:Ce (average 0.56), slight negative Ce and Eu anomalies and discrimination diagrams for Mn deposits indicated that the Sangan manganese deposit is hydrothermal type volcano-hydrothermal mineralization.
411 Study on effect Size of Walking Speed According to Corridor Shape , Soo-Ho Lee , Gyu-Yeob Jeon, Jun-Ho Choi , Wook-Jung Na and Won-Hwa Hong Soo-Ho Lee , Gyu-Yeob Jeon, Jun-Ho Choi , Wook-Jung Na and Won-Hwa Hong 
Background/Objectives: The walking speed is not steady and is influenced by corridor shapes. Most of evacuation simulations are using fixed walking speed, and it possible to cause an erroneous value. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In order to determine the changes and influence of walking speed depending on the shape of the pathway and the type of the crossroads, the maze-set experiment is conducted. Total 30 participants recruit as experimental subjects, and ratio of gender is same (male: 15, female: 15). The experimental site has 5 types of crossroad and all pathways of participants recorded that used experimental cameras. Findings: The average walking speed of participants is 1.08 m/s (male: 1.12 m/s, female: 1.04). The result of walking speed is lower than speed in general situation which is 1.40m/s and can form the hypothesis on walking speed affected by corridor shapes. The walking speed change by each shape corridor has meaningful difference. Based on this, the cause of different walking speed estimates that corridor shape has various effect sizes and through one-way ANOVA, it can compute by using eta squared. Application/Improvements: Corridor shapes used in paper is not representing as all of actual building. From the result, however, walking speed is not fixed value and interacts with corridor shapes
412 Method of Secure App user Authentication from Auto-Login in the Mobile Device , Hyung-Jin Mun, Yong-zhen  and Kwangyoun Jin 
Background/Objectives: At the present where services are provided using devices, the importance of mobile device authentication is increasing. We propose secure authentication method from auto-login function. Methods: Mobile carriers remotely prevent using the device after the process getting the report of missing cellphone, but that can’t be a complete solution when the USIM is removed or connection is made via wifi. This paper suggests a method with which when the service is requested by an app from mobile device, Service Provider decides to provide services after checking whether the device is lost through a trusted authority. Findings: A user, the owner of a cellphone, registers serial information of Phone, pSN, and reports when the cellphone is lost, and carries out a process to withdraw services. The service provider, whenever a service is requested, decides whether to provide the service through lost device checking process. In this way, the vulnerability of auto-login function of a lost phone can be fixed. Proposed method with the process to check the loss added authentication time compared to existing methods, but in terms of security and privacy protection, proposed method is superior because it provides services only when the device is not lost. Application/Improvements: With regard to solution to BYOD vulnerability and secure SSO, which have been recent issues, proposed method can be utilized as an effective method.
413 Comparative Analysis of Semantic Web Service Selection Methods , S. Maheswari and G. R. Karpagam 
The objective is to compare semantic web service selection methods based on Quality of Service (QoS) attributes. The investigation is carried out in three phases namely: Preprocessing, discovery and QoS based selection phase. Preprocessing phase deals with registration of services in the repository. Discovery phase deals with retrieval of functionally similar services using matchmaking techniques. The third phase focuses on QoS based selection using three methods namely Analytical Hierarchical Processing (AHP), Logical Scoring Preference with Ordered Weighted Averaging (LSP and OWA) and Fuzzy with Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to an Ideal Solution (Fuzzy Topsis). Further this paper analyzes the selection methods based on range of user preference criteria and compares them using Analysis of variance (ANOVA). It is a statistical hypothesis testing used for making decisions using data. Another objective of this paper is to propose a new approach to improve the performance of service selection using Iterative MapReduce. QWS dataset has been used for analyzing above mentioned three methods. Experimental results show that the Fuzzy Topsis scheme outperforms the other web service selection methods.

417 Real-Time Energy Imbalance Management Scheme for Electric Vehicles in the Smart Grid , Naila Zareen and Mohd Wazir Mustafa 
Electric Vehicles (EVs) as the alternative of the current fossil fuels vehicles represent the most promising green approach to the electrification of a significant portion of the transportation sector. Taking the randomness of EV’s charging/ discharging characteristics into consideration, a significant uncertainty will be added to the grid by the large penetration of EVs. Consequently, charging/ discharging management of EVs in presence of large scale intermittent Renewable Energy Resources (RERs) are considered as the most significant challenge for the future smart grid. In this context, a novel marketoriented energy imbalance management scheme is proposed for the seamless integration of EVs to the grid. The proposed scheme which, unlike previous works, utilizes the grid’s operating characteristics model within the signaling game-theoretic approach for the successful operation of electicity market. Optimal decision strategies for both EV owners and utility are devised by capturing the conflicting economic interests of players together under load/generation uncertainities. The maximization of the profit expectation of each market player in the presence of independent multi-generation resources is considered. This facilitates both the customer and utility to derive their robust bidding strategies. The efficacy of the proposed approach in reducing peak loads while satisfying customers needs are demonstrated by simulating the various scenarios of different penetration levels of EVs to the grid. Results show that the proposed methodology can successfully alleviate the peaks caused by the mass adoption of EVs with the better utilization of RER.

423  Behavioural Aspects of Software Project Management - In-House Software Development , R. Nagarajan A. Velanganni Joseph and S. Sujatha 
The study was aimed at looking into the behavioural aspects of software project management in in-house software development centres in India. It was considered to investigate the relationship between sector type and major organisational factor as perceived by the in-house software project head and the collective behavioural perception of in-house software project heads on human resource management, project management practices and supportive skills and environment where in-house development happens. The study was based on survey explorative design by using a structured questionnaire which was pre-tested with 35 in-house software project heads. After making necessary modifications from the collected feedback, questionnaires were sent to nearly 300 in-house software project heads in four different sectors and finally 200 responded. The collected data was analysed using chi-square analysis, correlation and other statistical tools to draw conclusions. The study revealed the collective perception of the in-house software project heads, in the descending order of their perceived interests, towards the factors of human resource management, project management practices, and supportive skills & environment. It was also found out that there is a relationship between sector type and organisational factor as perceived by the in-house software project head. In-house development centre heads need to be concerned with the behavioural aspects of developer community in their organisation, and beginning to consider these variables in their management practices will surely help to turn out successful projects both quantitatively and qualitatively. It is time to prove through further research and experiments that the behavioural aspects of software project management in the inhouse development centres in India still need to catch up with the practices to match the global standards as set by major software development companies both in India and abroad.

Background/Objectives: This research analyzes the influence of Urea SCR System’s mixer and optimization of the Catalyst’s position through post technologies in order to satisfy the Euro 6 regulations. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The simplified modeling was facilitated to interpret the current exhaust system. Considering the latter as the background, ANSYS was used for the Analysis. As for the method of Analysis, 5 flux variables were considered from exhaust flux of 1,000rpm~3,000 rpm in increments of 500 rpm. Findings: When the flux passes through the mixer, the speed dispersion increased and as the rpm increased, the results showed that 1,000 rpm compared to 3,000 rpm, the back pressure elevated over 500 Pa. By assessing the degree of uniformity, the uniformity expanded faster at high rpm and in low rpm, the flux itself is low so the uniformity gradually increased as it reached the latter part. Overall efficiency of over 95% was achieved at approximately 15~20 cm and in the points after that, the degree of uniformity gradually decreased in the graph. Therefore, it was determined that optimal position for the SCR catalyst should be 20~50 cm from the posterior of the mixer. Application/Improvements: This research was analyzed of the distribution uniformity effect in the exhaust system, the analysis result could be optimized of catalyst-position and improved uniformity index.

428 A Simulation Analysis Study on the Mechanical Behavior of a Mode 1 Test Specimen Composed of CFRP , Gue-Wan Hwang  and Jae-Ung Cho 
Background/Objectives: CFRP has been utilized widely at various fields at the modern industry. This paper investigates the behavior of cracks propagated at mode 1 in the joined CFRP through simulation analysis. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The joined structure for mode 1 composed according to thickness is applied under the tensile load. The specimens with four kinds of thicknesses are modeled by three dimensions. The joined specimen model of mode 1 is composed with upper and lower sides. As the contact condition is maintained on the area touched with each other until the maximum tensile bonding strength, this stress can be evaluated. Findings: As the displacement of adhesive interface is increased, the reaction force applied to specimen is increased linearly. At the point on which the adhesive interface is fallen off, the nonlinear behavior is shown. It is thought that this reason is due to the abrupt reduction of bonded area. At the specimen thickness of 40 mm, the highest value of reaction force is shown as 1000 N and the lowest value is shown at the specimen thickness of 25 mm. But, to the contrary, the phenomenon of falling off is happened most rapidly at the specimen thickness of 40 mm. Whereas 14 MPa was produced at the initial 25 mm in the stress at the adhesion interface, a reduction to 6.3 MPa at 40 mm was be observed. A lower occurrence of fractures of adhesive interfaces could be seen due to the reduction in stresses when the thickness was increased. Through this study result, the fracture behavior until falling off at the bonded interface of structure can be examined. Application/Improvements: The safety of joined structure can be evaluated and the safe design data at the structure can be obtained by applying this result.

431 The Role of Water Supply Management in Rural Economy with an Emphasis on Earth Dams Construction (Case Study: Bakhazr County).  , Lesani Mohammad Taghi  and Jafari Hamid 
Since long ago, qanāts and springs have been the main water resources in the foothills rural areas and heights margin of Iran. These water supplies are mostly fed by the underground waters of top and shallow layer. Regarding the continuous droughts during the recent years,theDebi ofthese water resources has been severely reduced. To feed qanāts and springs in watershed management, one of the practical strategies is to construct earth dams. This is aimed to feed qanāts through the penetration of runoffs and floods in watercourses. In some villages of Bakhazr County, Khorasan-e Razavi Province, earth dams have been constructed to feed qanāts and springs since 65 years ago. The main objective of this study is to see how these earth dams affect rural development including villagers’ satisfaction and the reduction of their migration motivation. Objective-wise, this study is an applied research. Yet, in nature and method, it is a descriptive-analytical research. This is carried out using document (library) research and filling out questionnaire (survey). Results show that constructing earth dam increases villagers’ income and employment.
432 An Analytical Study on Mechanical Behavior of Crack Propagation in CFRP Mode 2 Adhesive Specimens through Simulation Analysis , Gue-Wan Hwang and Jae -Ung Cho 
Background/Objectives: CFRP has been utilized as composite material at various industrial fields. This paper investigates the fracture behavior at the part joined with adhesive of the structure for Mode 2. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The bonded structure for Mode 2 composed according to thickness is applied under the tensile load. As the fracture behavior is investigated by the finite element method, the previous data are secured before experiment. The contact condition is maintained on the area touched with each other until the maximum tensile bonding strength. So, the bonding condition on this model is cleared when the occurred stress becomes beyond this stress. Findings: As the thickness is increased, the reaction force and the displacement are increased until falling off at the bonded interface. By the separation at the adhesive interface of the joined part with an increase in thicknesses of the two joined specimens, an increase in structural stability for the joined structure could be seen. The various stress distribution and the transferred direction of load at bonded interface can be investigated. As the thickness of a specimen applied to the joined CFRP was increased, equivalent stresses due to displacement could be seen to be gradually increased. At this time, the stresses produced at the adhesive interface could be seen to affect the specimens and the equivalent stresses could also be seen to be increased. However, since the fracture of specimen could be seen not to occur at a lower value than the tensile strength of the applied specimen, the stability of the structures could be seen as being guaranteed. Application/Improvements: On the basis of this study result, the safety of bonded structure can be evaluated and the safe design data can be obtained by applying this result
433 Numerical Analysis of Seepage of Concrete-Coated Water Transmission Channels Considering Saturated – Unsaturated Conditions , Saeeid Karimi and Saeid Abrishami 
Seepage of water transmission channels means waste of water, and is considered an undesirable phenomenon. A proper channel coating design can prevent this phenomenon. For this purpose, it is necessary to analyze the seepage of these channels and based on the results of this analysis, the best channel design is achieved. Since the soil around the channel is unsaturated, there is no possibility to analyze it with conventional methods, and using methods such as semi-empirical equations for estimating seepage gives approximate results. Although increasing the accuracy of field experiments, acceptable and accurate estimation of the seepage at various time intervals can be given, it should be noted that these methods are time consuming and costly. However, using numerical methods, a high volumes of data can be processed in a short time with minimum cost. Therefore, present study discusses numerical analysis of seepage phenomenon considering saturated-unsaturated conditions and assesses the ability of seep/w software model in estimating water seepage of concrete channel of Xiang River basin in China. Comparing these results with experimental results show that the results of numerical analysis is quantitatively consistent with physical models, and our model has a high capacity in estimating the seepage of water transmission concrete channels in the study area.
434 What are Software Developers’ and Medical Experts’ Priorities for Adopting a Healthcare Software Platform? , Yong-Young Kim and Mi-Hye Kim  
Background/Objectives: Many policies are provided for promoting the software market. However, little research has studied medical experts’ or software developers’ requirements with regard to software platforms that focus on healthcare. Methods/Statistical Analysis: With a literature review and interviews with experts, questionnaires were developed in order to measure five topics: Fields to be developed, expertise, problems, effect and the factors that facilitate the platform. The survey was administered on a website for two weeks. The participants were medical experts and software developers. 97 software developers and 79 medical experts completed the survey. All of these completed surveys were analyzed using rank and priority test method. Findings: From the results of the survey of software developers and medical experts, it is possible to see the relevant priorities of these two groups. First, software developers and medical experts believe that health condition measurement and the prevention of disease/disorder are new markets that should be opened. Second, they want to share their expertise and knowledge if they participate in a healthcare software platform. Thus, we can verify that software developers and medical experts do not differ regarding the fields that should be considered and the expertise that should be offered. Third, software developers have concerns about the absence of preparation for healthcare software certification, the absence of preparation for a healthcare database and a shortage of information about the healthcare software market. Further, after adopting a healthcare software platform, software developers expect that it will enable them to utilize a specific healthcare database, utilize expertise and develop competitive content and share domestic/ foreign information on healthcare. Finally, there are priority factors that software developers believe can facilitate the platform. Application/Improvements: It is relevant for this study to survey two key participating supply-side groups. The results may be utilized to help provide useful directions for Korean government’s healthcare software platform policies

440 Responses of Various Corn Cultivars under Supplementary Irrigation ManagementResponses of Various Corn Cultivars under Supplementary Irrigation Management , Marjan Zohrabi  , Ebrahim Amiri  and Parisa Shahinrokhsar 
This project was executed in a split-plot experiment using the randomized complete block design with four replications in the research field at the Gilan Agriculture and Natural Resources Research Center to evaluate the effects of various irrigation regimes on three single cross hybrids in corn. The major factor was the irrigation treatment (one irrigation before flowering, one irrigation at flowering and one at seed filling stages, no irrigation or rainfed farming), and the minor factor the cultivars ( the single cross hybrids 704, 260, and 400). The three irrigation regimes and the three cultivars had significantly different effects on seed yield at the 5% and 1% probability levels, respectively. Comparing the means of irrigation regimes showed the maximum yield (6580 kg/ha) belonged to the treatment of irrigation at flowering and at seed filling stages and the minimum (4888 kg/ha) to the treatment of irrigation before flowering. Irrigation at flowering and seed filling stages increased yield and yield components, while the hybrid SC704 was the suitable cultivar under water stress conditions.

Lower Permian deposits in the Kalmard block, which are known as Khan Formation, enjoys different characteristics in various outcrops. This formation, from bottom to top, is interpreted to be a group of three formations, namely Chili, Sartakht and Hormoz. It is mainly composed of carbonate rocks, dolomite, sandstones, shale and marl. The Kuh-e-Ahaki section in Chili formation is 87 meters thick. According to lithological and microscopic studies, deposits of Khan Gorup in Kuh-e-Ahaki section are deposited in beach sub-environments, open to semi-restricted lagoon sub-environments, shoal sub-environment and open submarine sub-environment in the rocks of this part of formation, triggering fluctuations in sea level. Vertical changes of microfacies and the curve of its depth change point to the high thickness of the facies of shoal and open marine sub-environments. The rocks of Khan Gorup are deposited in a low-angle homoclinal ramp located in southern Paleotethys Ocean.
443 The Effect of Benefits of Mobile Application useDiffusion and Purchase Intention in Service Management , Ki -Heung Yim and Jin-Hee Kwon  
Background/Objectives: One of the biggest recent issues in the communication market is the explosive distribution of smart phones. One of the reasons why a smart phone could have seen this rapid distribution in terms of the service management is because it enables the access to the Internet without getting restricted by place and time through customization by a user, unlike a feature phone which only has the existing functions mounted on that were already chosen by a suppler. The other reason is because of its applications. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study performed a survey for a sample of people who have ever used the online shopping applications. It is looking on the demographic characteristics, among a total of 215 people. In order to verify the formed hypotheses and models, this study evaluated reliability using the Cronbach's Alpha scale and it was found that the high reliability had been acquired as most of the variables showed high values above 0.8. In advance of the verification of hypotheses, the reliability analysis was carried out to examine reliability of the measurement items for each construction concept used in this study. Also, to verify the hypotheses of this thesis, a structural equating model was set up and a path analysis of the relationship between construction concepts was carried out. Findings: This study aimed to make an empirical investigation of the impact of each of the different convenience types of mobile applications on the usage and the use diversity, consider the process of use diffusion and find out whether there is a difference in the effect of each convenience type on the use-diffusion. According to the findings of this study, it was firstly shown that the effect of each convenience type on the use-diffusion is different and secondly, it appeared that the more various functions of the mobile applications are used, the usage increases. Improvements/Applications: It is supposed that the portability and accessibility was less easy because they were the studies for a PC. On the other hand, in case of a mobile phone like in this study, it has the excellent portability and accessibility compared to anything else including a PC. Therefore, it is supposed that more usage and more chances to access to its functions must have had a positive impact on the increase of the usage.
444 Sustainable Spatial Land Use Optimization through Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm-II (NSGAII): (Case Study: Baboldasht District of Isfahan).  , Mahmoud Mohammadi  , Mahin Nastaran and Alireza Sahebgharani 
A heuristic method named as non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm version two (NSGA-II) is developed for multiobjective land use allocation based on the concept of sustainable development which is the predominant notion of land use planning. Numerous plans are generated and optimized by NSGA-II according to land use allocation objectives: maximizing compactness, maximizing floor area ratio, maximizing compatibility, maximizing economic benefit and maximizing mix use. These objectives and constraints are formulated and combined through weighted sum method. This paper moves the previous studies forward in several aspects: 1) application of non-linear objective functions which represent the complexity of real word better than linear functions, 2) modification of NSGA-II operators to fit it for application in urban land use planning framework, and 3) adding density related objective functions which represent the concept of sustainable development more comprehensive. Application of NSGA-II in land use allocation of Baboldasht district, demonstrates effectiveness and the potential of this algorithm in development of planning support system through representation of optimal solutions with different preferences.
445 A Strategy of Selecting a Maximal Set of Sleep Links for Energy Saving in Core IP Networks , Chimoon Han and Sangchul Kim  
Background/Objectives: Nowadays the energy consumption of ICT networks is about 10% of the total worldwide power consumption and is predicted to increase remarkably in the near future. Methods/Statistical Analysis: We study energy saving methods for IP networks in a way to select qualified links and place them in sleep mode under network-level QoS constraints. An energy saving strategy is proposed which is based on the concept of delegation process with a user-specified condition for limiting the increase in hop count of paths. The main feature of our strategy is delegation process through which a maximal set of sleep links can be found under the user-specified constraint. Findings: For maximizing energy saving, we present two heuristic algorithms for link selection under QoS constraints, and evaluate the characteristics of the algorithms by a computer simulation. Our two algorithms provide three kinds of methods, namely, max_set, min_traffic and min_traffic. This paper shows that in terms of link saving efficiency, the max_set is ranked first, the mini_traffic second, and the min_path last. The link saving efficiency of the max_set reaches about 65 % under certain conditions. Also, the max-set method is shown to find a larger set of sleep links than previous works, enabling more energy saving. On the certain conditions, we confirm the increased mean hops of the path within 1.2 hops in case of using the max_set for selecting sleep link. This value does not have a significant impact on the real end-to-end delay. Application/Improvements: We expect that our algorithms will provide the ISP with a mechanism for achieving the required level of energy saving by adjusting the delay of paths

447 A Study on Improvement of Fire Protection Systems based on Failure Characteristics accodrding to Yearly Variation in Old Commercial Buildings , Wook-Jung Na 
Background: Safety assessment of fire protection system is very important. Especially, Fire Protection system is central to minimizing damage to human lives and property. They’re not in demand at normal times but are definitely needed in times of fire or other disasters. Concerns of performance loss or failure owing to yearly variation remain but the nature of fire protection system challenges users from detecting equipment failure or defects early on. Methods: This study sets a certain inspection score to defect probability, which is calculated by quantitative defect probability arising from yearly variation in fire protection systems by part of fire protection systems observed by time and use the score as the basis to determine replacement and inspection of parts. This study also aims at suggesting hazard calculation associated with aging based on criticality and yearly variation of fire protection systems. This method can realize active and quantitative management and the old fire protection system. Findings: Presented in this study Performance Assessment Tool allows a more effective replacement and inspection of firefighting equipment in structures and eventually calculate hazard of firefighting equipment performance in a quantitative manner, thereby serves as an effective diagnosis tool for maintaining and improving performance of aging firefighting equipment. Improvements: For improvements of this study, data on defect rate of fire protection systems should be recorded to deliver higher reliability and aging of fire protection systems arising from time variance should also be monitored by building detailed data to come up with a methodology that ensures reliable management
448 Efficient Utilization Condition of MACD on Stock Market and Nontrend Status Detecting Indicatior , Jung-Youn Lee and Sun-Myung Hwang   
Background/Objectives: In the trend stock market, when low frequency components determine wave form of stock price, MACD can be useful for predicting stock price. The MA and MACD occurs time delay and whipsaw problem. In order to use the MACD efficiently, we propose indicators are derived from the power measurement of the price waveform. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: The proposed method differentiates trend market against nontrend market. In this method, given stock signal is converted into the sum of many frequency components by using the fourier transform and the power of low frequency components is measured. Findings: When power values increase rapidly it is highly likely that market is in trend market and when the values linearly decrease then the inflection point in stock price waveform can be occurred. Therefore, once appropriate reference line is set up, one can determine that trend market is in progress if values increase passing the reference line, that opposite trend market after inflection point is in progress if values decrease passing the reference line using power calculation. Improvements/Applications: The market is determined as ‘trend market’ if the power value is larger enough, and it is remarkably helpful and particularly useful at automatic trading systems.
449 Analysis of Allelic Variation in HMW-Glu-1 Gene Blocks in Iranian Wheat Cultivars using ALP Molecular Marker.  , HaYasub Shiri , Mahmood Solouki  and Massih Forootan 
In order to study the allelic variation of Glu-1 gene (High molecular weight glutenin), 100 Iranian wheat cultivars including imported and domestic genotypes were analyzed using ALP-PCR technique. Four specific primer pairs were used based on the genetic loci of Glu-A1, Glu-B1, and Glu-D1 to perform the chain polymerase reactions. PCR reaction products were resolved on %2 agarose gel. Since allele “a” had the largest relative frequency (0.707), two alleles (a 344bp; b 362bp) were identified by P1-P2 primer for Glu-A1 locus. Three alleles (a 800bp; b 500bp; c 300bp) were detected for Glu-B1 locus by P5-P6 primer, and allele “b” was assumed as the highest relative frequency (0.618). Two primer pairs were applied for Glu-D1 locus. Ultimately, four alleles were identified, where allele “c” had the highest relative frequency (0.525). The observed genetic variation value for Glu-D1 locus (H=0.648) exhibits the maximal polymorphism. Using cluster analysis, the relationship between the observed polymorphism and geographical variation was investigated. The results indicated that there exists a remarkable variation in Glu-1 locus between the Iranian wheat cultivars.
450 The Development of a Multi-port Slow Charger for Electric Vehicles , JeaHee Lee , ChangJin Seo and KwangSeob Shin   
Background/Objectives: The EV charging infrastructure consists largely of the power supply facilities, charger, interface, and information system. Charger that supply electricity from an electricity provider to EV batteries can be classified as direct charging, noncontact charging, and battery exchange. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Direct charging is divided into slow charging and fast charging based on the charging time. At present, 90% of the charger market is slow chargers. The points to be solved of slow charger is the user discomfort and installation cost due to limitation of space and time. Findings: To solve this point, proposed the multi-port slow-charging system in this study. It reduced the installation and maintenance costs in comparison to existing chargers and improved user convenience by providing a multi-port charging feature, which enables multiple EVs to be charged simultaneously with one charger, and by providing a user interface through the driver’s smart phone to implement the V2G standard. A prototype of the proposed multi-port slow-charging system was implemented, and performance tests were conducted in situations similar to the actual environment to verify the performance of the proposed system. An analysis of the performance test results reveals that the proposed system was above the KC(Korea Certification) standard values. Furthermore, the proposed multi-port slow-charging system can reduce costs by about 50%, compared to the existing charging system, based on the manufacturing and maintenance costs of the charger. Application/Improvements: The user interface of the charger was interfaced with the driver’s smart phone, implementing a communication system that is similar to the V2G protocol in order to construct an ICT charging system
451 Effect of Minimum Quantity Lubrication with Gamma-Al 2 O3 Nanoparticles on Surface Roughness in Milling AISI D3 Steel.  , Mostafa Hadi  and Reza Atef 
This paper presents an investigation into the Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) and MQL with gamma-Al 2 O3 nanoparticles in end milling processes of AISI D3 steel work material to analyze the effects of cutting parameters on surface roughness with Taguchi method. The experimental results show when gamma-Al 2 O3 nanoparticle dispersed to vegetableoil with volume fraction 1%, the surface roughness decreased about 0.3μm and improved about 15% than pure MQL. Also by dispersing gamma-Al 2 O3 nanoparticle to vegetable oil with volume fraction 2%, surface roughness decreased about 0.5μm and improved about 25% than pure MQL. This results indicate better performance application of gamma-Al 2 O3 nanoparticles when it is dispersed in vegetable oil.
452 Efficient Mobile Agent Path-search Techniques using Genetic Algorithm Processing , Hongil Ji and Chang Jin Seo  Hongil Ji and Chang Jin Seo  
Background/Objectives: Although the efficiency of genetic algorithms improves with the creation of each generation, a number of generations are needed to obtain the desired results. In addition, when ad hoc unit increases are linked to a network, it may be necessary to compare all cases. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This requires the simultaneous generation of multiple algorithms at one time. Where a single process is used to manage all such algorithms, the overall efficiency of the network will decrease. Findings: The algorithm proposed in this thesis introduces router group cell units for use in the distributed processing of previous genetic algorithms. The experimental results showed that the proposed algorithm reduced path processing costs caused by the alternative path setup by approximately 27% when compared with Dijkstra’s and the Munetomo algorithm. Operation time for the alternative path setup was approximately twice as fast as that of Dijkstra’s algorithm. These results suggest that the algorithm proposed in this paper is more efficient than either Dijkstra’s or the Munetomo algorithm in terms of alternative path setup during router failure. Application/ Improvements: The study presents ways to reduce overall search delays across a network through the use of a cell-based genetic algorithm.

457 Brute-force Attacks Analysis against SSH in HPC Multi-user Service Environment , Jae-Kook Lee, Sung-Jun Kim and Taeyoung Hong  
Background/Objectives: The brute-force attack is one of popular cyber security threats in the secure shell (SSH) service environment. The SANS Institute has warned about SSH brute-force attacks against remote services. Methods/Statistical Analysis: We describe two brute-force attack detection methods are applied in the High Performance Computing (HPC) service environment which has been operated by KISTI in KOREA. The first way parses failed authentication logs of systems. The second way analyze dropped events of network firewalls. Findings: We analyze SSH brute-force attacks that are detected applying these methods in our service environment. The analysis results show that SSH brute-force attacks are classified ‘1:N’ or ‘N:1’ types of attack between source and destination IP address. And a duration of attacks that is generally the time it takes to execute attacks keeps enough long times. Improvements/Applications: Two detection methods which are deployed in our HPC multi-user service environment are complementary to each other. These methods will be also able to apply for other service environment.
458 A Study on the Web Service of Cloud Environment based on User Requirements , Sungho Sim and Hanyong Choi 
Background/Objectives: The main purpose of this study is to suggest a method for searching a kind of cloud service which is suitable for users by applying. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A variety of methods are developed in order to be used for utilizing some of the existing system and resources more effectively in accordance with the universalization of internet and IT service. However, interworking in a distributed environment contains a lot of difficulties and problems by itself. It lacks consideration for users since it is too much inclined toward physical network environment. In addition, there is a need to find out a proper service that is suitable for requirement of the clients the increase of web services that provides a similar feature has become very common nowadays. It is necessary to look for a web service that can satisfy users by reflecting the requirements of clients to break away from the provider oriented service. Findings: A Cloud service guarantees constant level of service quality through constant discussion based on minimum level of requirement and measuring standard for provider and user in the cloud computing environment in order to provide a reliable and consistent quality to users. Nevertheless, there is a limitation in providing a customized content that is analyzed for each individual since the services provided differs from each other in some way. The method we propose in this study consists of web service searching method based on user requirements. Also, it is composed of SLA specification and user requirement information to bring about positive effects for a proper service search in a Cloud environment. Application/Improvements: The user-friendly system suggested in this study enables users to select an appropriate service provider through the utilization of the proposed system.
459 To Study the Indian Perspective on the Concept of Work from Home. , Kriti Srivastava, Amritha Sethumadhavan, Harini Raghupathy, Shreya Agarwal and Surya Rashmi Rawat 
Cranky boss, long working hours, and standing behind line of cars. Work from home shall save you time, for reduction in expenses shall save you lots of time There comes a time in every employee’s life when he pictures himself free from his monotonous nightmare of long office hours and then getting stuck in traffic. Nonetheless, there also comes a time when he feels that his office brings the best out of him.Working From Home (WFH)is a debatable conceptwhich is being explored by an increasing number of organizations across the globe. The main objective behind this research paper is to focus and understand the current perception of the concept of WFH. The study aims to seek the correlation and analyze its suitability in the Indian work environment. The paper also highlights its merits, demerits and proposes certain recommendations. The research methodology includes primary data over a survey sample of 50 employees, belonging to the IT Sector of Pune.

460 A Study on the Safe and Efficient Method of Transmitting Data in ZigBee Networ , Jae-Young Lee  
Background/Objectives: The main purpose of this study is to find a way to improve the sliding window method which is used in ZigBee network data transmission. We focus on a process that gives a solution for solving a problem when there is a loss of data in the first stage and reduces unnecessary message which occurs because of power saving feature of ZED in non-beacon mode. This allows a safe and efficient data transfer in ZigBee network. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Among the data transmitted in sliding window method, only the first data includes the window size. As a result, when there is a loss in the first data, the receiving node cannot send out ACK message since it can’t figure out the window size. Accordingly, the sending node cannot send out the following data. Therefore, we propose a method for including window size information in all of the data transferred. Findings: As the window size is included in every data, the receiving node has no problem in sending out ACK message even though the first data is lost. Also, the window size information can act as a Sequence Number for the received data, which makes it easier to identify the data which is lost in the transmission process. Data Request message refers to a message that informs other devices that ZED which has a Power Saving feature in the non-beacon mode is Power on. Data Request message is sent out whether it includes data for ZED or not. Devices that received Data Request message transfer ACK message to ZED. The core point dealt with in this paper shows that it is possible to reduce unnecessary message transmission by including Power On time information in the last ACK message of ZED. Improvements/Applications: This paper suggests a problem solving method for reducing unnecessary message transmission and data loss in the ZigBee network to enable safer and efficient data transmission.
461 Efficient Remote Software Management Method based on Dynamic Address Translation for IoT Software Execution Platform in Wireless Sensor Network , Minwoo Jung, Dae-Young Kim and Seokhoon Kim   
Background/Objectives: In this paper, an efficient remote code execution technique is proposed to implement a storage-less sensor in the Internet-of-Things (IoT) paradigm. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To realize a flexible code update mechanism and to optimize the use of an IoT device in terms of utilizing its various functions, we adopt the concept of remote on-demand code execution (ROCE) to implement a storage-less sensor. Findings: Instead of using a conventional on-chip flash memory for an instruction code, an instruction memory is used wherein the remote storage area based on the IoT platform is virtually mapped onto the address space of the instruction memory using a dynamic address translation technique. The proposed storage-less approach using the remote resource as a virtual code space may be adopted to reduce the high access current and chip area overhead of an on-chip code flash memory. Application/Improvements: The proposed technique reduces the energy consumption and the packet delay of an IoT device for executing the remote embedded software, as well as realizes a storage-less sensor architecture.
462  Compliance driven Cost Control for Telecom Infrastructure Operation Management , Pavan Totla, Sumit Saini  , Anand Bhele and Vikram Jupal 
For a major telecom infrastructure company operating pan India including the state of Haryana, over 400 of their telecom infrastructure operation sites in Haryana had connected running power load more than the load sanctioned by the Haryana State Electricity Board (HSEB). As per the Standard Operating Procedure of this telecom infrastructure company (SOP), these 400 plus sites did not qualify under load upgrade category since the load had been increased without attracting any new tenancy i.e. Base Transceiver Station (BTS) of other telecom operators (service providers). Power load at these 400 sites had increased because of additional load due to sector expansion, cabinet expansion and 3G additions.Since running power load for a BTS cannot be more than the sanctioned load, these 400 sites were non compliant as per HSEB norms. If these sites were to be inspected by State Electricity Board inspectors and identified for non-conformity, it would have lead to heavy commercial penalties and even permanent disconnection of electricity to these sites. This inturn would entail using 24x7 diesel generators to keep sites active, increasing the operation cost manifold and also threatening environment pollution.A business case was prepared for this problem using the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control(DMAIC) methodology, a Six-Sigma approach. Cause of power overload and its effect was detailed out using root cause analysis and possible optimal remedial solution was arrived at for this project. The total penalties calculated as per the HSEB guidelines came out to be Rs.35 million whereas the total expenditure being involved in complying and coming out of this issue came out to be Rs.12 million approximately, thus making it a net saving of Rs.23 million for the telecom company. It was also observed that for the sites where the sanctioned load was 35% - 50% of the required load, net saving potential was more compared to the sites where the sanctioned load was 55% - 80% of the required load. A similar business case was carried out by the same company in the state of Himachal Pradesh and found that net saving potential was more compared to the state of Haryana.This was practically achieved by calling different partners (vendors) to discuss this project in an open forum. Non compliant site allocation was carried out on the basis of partner’s confidence, band width and operational capabilities to deliver these sites. A reward per site was declared to motivate the partners for quick achievement of the desired results (compliance) with a gate criterion of ≥80% of the total site allocation done. The partners provided power usage receipts from HSEB as a proof of job done and payments were released accordingly. The change in power load was reflected in the subsequent electricity bills. The target set for the change over to the HSEB compliance was three months during which rigorous monitoring and review mechanism was put in place including circulation of Daily Progress Report to all internal and external stakeholders. To ensure that this issue does not repeat in future, the technical guidelines (SOP) was amended in terms of the power load to be upgraded for every new asset being deployed at site.
463 Understanding the Stickiness of Corporate Social Responsibility Reporting as a Post Globalization Digital Marketing Strategy: A Study of Multinational Automobile Companies in India , Sabyasachi Dasgupta and Anurupa Ghatge 
Digital Marketing Initiatives of Firms are considered as one of the most influential marketing strategies of corporates to maximize the benefits of their businesses. One of the marketing approaches of businesses to find sophisticated ways of linking social and business values at individual and stakeholder level is through Corporate Social Responsibility ( CSR) reporting on websites. There is a “mad” race to promote CSR in order to enhance corporate visibility towards societal welfare. The objective of this paper is to evaluate whether there are elements of stickiness in CSR reporting as published in the websites of multinational automobile companies in India. Basically, Stickiness refers to a site’s ability to retain users and drive them further into a site5 . This paper takes into consideration four elements of stickiness as conceived by Gillespie, Krishna, Oliver, Olsen, and Thiel 15 . Comprising four broad components, they suggest that stickiness drivers in a website are content, customization, real-time interaction, and site promotion. The methodology adopted in this paper is thematic analysis of the CSR reporting of major (according to Forbes ranking) multinational automobile companies in India. The findings from this paper would suggest: firstly, whether all the four elements as proposed by Gillespie, Krishna, Oliver, Olsen and Thiel are prevalent in websites of these companies; secondly, the parameters that are more prominent among the automobile companies; thirdly other parameters (if at all) to be taken into consideration in order to enhance the stickiness of CSR Reporting
464 Innovation Activities and the Business Performance of Small and Medium Manufacturing Companies - Moderating Effects of Organizational and Network Characteristic , Jinkwon Kim and Tony Donghui Ahn  
Background/Objectives: Management innovation in manufacturing companies is becoming more and more important to secure competitiveness in rapidly changing technical environment and the diversifying expectations of customers. The purpose of this study is to empirically examine the relationship between management innovation and business performance, and especially, the moderating effect of organizational and network characteristics between them. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: This study established a research model through existing literature reviews and empirically verified the research model through a field survey. It explored the relationship between the 4 areas of management innovation-system, product, process, and human resource-and the 2 factors of business performance-customer satisfaction and financial performance. To determine the moderating effect of organizational characteristics which have over the influence of management innovation on business performance, the level of formalization, centralization, and networking characteristics was considered. For the data analysis, a multivariate analysis has been performed using a statistical analysis tool. Findings: Management innovation was shown to have a significant positive effect on management performance, while organizational characteristics and network characteristics had a moderating effect. The organization’s formalization level especially had a significant moderating effect in the relationship of “system innovation and customer satisfaction”, and “product, process innovation and financial performance”, while the centralization level had a marginally moderating effect. Furthermore, the level of internal and external network of an organization had a moderating effect on system, process innovation and customer satisfaction performance. This study corresponds to previous research, which has found that management innovation has a positive effect on business performance. In addition to that, this study provides useful findings how each organizational characteristics have over the influence of each innovation activities on business performance. Application/ Improvements: The findings of this study imply that when a company tries to induce management innovation, it should consider the organization and network characteristics to maximize the result of innovation. On the other hand, a company should try to set up the appropriate organizational and network environment prior to the management innovation.
465 Progressive Importance of the Drivers of Employee Engagement , Rabiya T. S. Sange 
Some of the best organizations have realized that it is essential to give customers a complete experience for them to become loyal customers in the future. Organizations also understand that consumer buying behaviour is influenced by pre-purchase, purchase and post–purchase experiences. All these experiences are mediated by employee – customer interactions. This makes it important for organizations to tune in their employee behaviour to customer needs. Every job has different requirements from the job incumbent. This also means that different set of professionals would want different things from the company. Sales/marketing is a peculiar yet an important function for the organization since their individual performances put together directly affect the company’s profits Thus, making it all the more important for organizations and managers to understand the impact that different drivers have on engaging their sales/marketing employees. Secondary data sources were used to arrive at a review of the literature. The present study surveyed 500 sales/marketing professionals using the questionnaire developed by the researcher to measure employee engagement. Statistical analysis using SPSS 15 was conducted. Multiple regression analysis revealed the progressive importance of the drivers of employee engagement to sales professionals. A model is proposed which can be used by managers to streamline their initiatives towards creating a more engaged sales force.
466 A Study on Cutting Analysis upon Oblique Groove Processing by using an End Mill , Key-Sun Kim, Ok-Hwan Kim , Bum-Seok Oh and Chung-Sik Shin  
Background/Objectives: A representative tool end mill, and predictive studies on tool wear and tool life are in urgent need since the number of products requiring high-precision processing has being increasing recently. Method/Statistical Analysis: The workpiece had a size of 20mm in length, 20mm in width, and 5mm in thickness. For the tool with the outside diameter of 8mm, the radial rake angle of 5°, and the helix angle of 20°. Processing involved oblique processing at an angle of 5° so that the depth was increased as the transfer progressed. Revolution of the tool was 600RPM with the feed-rate being set at 100mm/min. Findings: Upon initial processing, plastic deformation can be seen to occur in a center part of the end mill also, as the depth was increased while almost no initial plasticity occurred in the center part. The maximum temperature occurs at the blade tip of tool edge part that was cut the deepest, and a high temperature of about 1334.5° C was produced. Therefore, work hardening is expected to occur upon processing due to such high temperature. After the formation of chips by processing flow, rapid cooling may be observed. While similar cutting forces for all of x, y, and z axes are acting initially, those for the x-axis and y-axis can be seen to be drastically increased in a vertical direction up to about 18kN after rotation by about 900°, despite the fact that almost no cutting force is applied. The reason is considered to be application of severe vertical loads so as to act as a compressive stress for the tool as the depth of the end mill is increased in oblique plane processing. Application/Improvements: Severe concentrated loads occurred at the blade tip of tool edge so that a shivering phenomenon was considered to occur. This result will be used as the basic data upon product processing.
467 Effect of CSR on Employee Engagement , Maryam Hanzala Tariq 
Smart business leaders believe that an active corporate social responsibility program is an asset when it comes to attracting top talent14 . Many leaders fail to understand that simply instituting a CSR program is not enough to retain the top talent. Today’s conscious employees demand corporate social responsibility programs that give them the opportunity to become personally engaged in making a difference at work. Research conducted by Cone Millennial Cause group, detailed in “The 2020 Workplace” found that 80% of a sample of 1,800 18-25 year olds wanted to work for a company that cares about how it impacts and contributes to society. Employee engagement is a well understood concept. There is agreement that employee engagement entails more than just motivation or performance. Common themes found in most definitions include a commitment to and belief in the organization and its values and a willingness and ability to contribute ‘discretionary effort’ to help the organization succeed. Various drivers of employee engagement have also been identified time and again by the researchers’ fraternity. Nowadays businesses have become more conscious towards their contribution to the society and the environment in which they operate. This paper takes into account Corporate Social Responsibility as a driver of employee engagement in an organization. The researcher attempts to review existing literature on the topic; and with the help of a structured questionnaire assess the relationship between CSR and employee engagement. Statistical tools have been used for analysing the data collected from respondents.
468 Vehicle Detection using Images taken by Low-Altitude Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) , Chang-Jin Seo  
Background/Objectives: This paper discusses the detection of vehicles in a dense area using low-altitude aerial images produced by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Vehicles in a dense area are difficult to detect accurately in images because of the narrow distance between parked vehicles. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This paper proposes a method that detects vehicles by applying a Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) feature-extraction method to obtain information about vehicles found in images. Images used in the experiment were shot using a Phantom 3 Professional UAV developed by DJI Corp. Findings: Aerial images can be collected to measure traffic via a variety of methods. In recent years, studies on traffic volume using UAVs have been actively conducted. Until now, satellites, aircrafts, and helicopters have been used to obtain aerial images; however, the cost of such images is high, and these methods cannot respond to changes over time and weather in real time. As UAV technology has advanced in recent years, the methods of obtaining cost-effective and ultrahigh definition (UHD) aerial images have become available. The experimental results show the proposed approach can be used to detect vehicles that are densely packed in an area more effectively than the method using the conventional histogram of oriented gradients (HOG), which employs information about the brightness of images. Application/Improvements: In this paper, the detection of vehicles found in a densely packed area is performed using the HOG, which exhibits good adaptability to environmental changes.

470 Transforming Banking through Telecom - An Approach.  , V. Ravi Kumar , Madhvi Sethi  and Dipali Krishnakumar 
India presently faces the challenge of achieving financial inclusion, with the banking system estimated to be covering only 400 million of India’s population of 1.2 billion. As per Reserve Bank of India (RBI) data, current users of the banking system are largely in urban areas. An important aspect of achieving financial inclusion is also to provide a means for cash management in a safe, effective and low-cost manner. The well-documented telecom boom in India with an estimated 900 million individual users provides a potential framework that could transform the banking system in India. This paper proposes a framework for mobile phone companies to offer payment services to start with, called “payment banks”. New technologies can reform the banking sector apart from giving a much needed impetus for the cause of financial inclusion and will be a large step forward in spreading banking services to millions of new clients in the under-banked regions of India. The need for a “Payment Bank” has been discussed in the NachiketMor Committee Report of the RBI. Our paper formulates a theoretical model for achieving financial Inclusion by leveraging advantages in technology in India and enabling select Telecom operators to offer rudimentary cash management services to start with before offering a bouquet of financial services products to the vast majority of India’s population who do not avail of the existing network of Banks. The paper suggests possible basic changes to enable this process apart from using existing infrastructure to enable wider dissemination of financial products. An impact analysis of these suggested changes are also discussed along with remedial measures.
471 The Changes of Middle School Students’ Perception and Achievement based on the Teaching Method in Physical Computing Education , Yun Jae Jang, Won Gyu Lee and Ja Mee Kim  
Background/Objectives: This study aims to identify effective teaching method in physical computing education for middle school students. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study conducted a comparative analysis of middle school students’ perception and achievement between different teaching methods in physical computing education. Physical computing classes were provided for 30 hours, 49 students randomly participated in two classes. Findings: The results showed no statistically significant difference in perception and achievement between teaching methods. However, the results regarding the process of perception change suggest that there is a possibility that the problem-based inquiry method helps with gradual increase of class difficulty and improving class satisfaction. However, regarding learning basic concepts, the analysis results suggest that the direct teaching method is likely to be more helpful. Application/Improvements: In terms of future direction, ongoing efforts to find the teaching method that best fits the characteristics of physical computing education are needed.

473 Necessity and Expectation for an Identification Scheme in IoT Service: Cases in South Korea , Min-Seong Kang , Hyuk Im, Hyo-Jung Jun and Tae-Sung Kim  2016. Necessity and Expectation for an Identification Scheme in IoT Service: Cases in South Korea. Indian Journal of Science and Technology, Vol 9(24), DOI: 10.17485/ijst/2016/v9i24/96108  
Background/Objectives: Individual things should uniquely be identified internationally, so that IoT services can be realized. Thus, a ‘standardized, universal identification information system,’ which can uniquely identify individual things and entities, is needed. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study investigated the status of the use of identification schemes by industrial sector and by service through a keyword search in order to understand the global status of the use of the identification schemes. In addition, for an empirical analysis of the use of identification schemes in South Korea, a survey on the present condition of use and management of identification schemes was conducted with the entire industry sectors. Findings: As a result of a survey on the status of the use and management of identification schemes by industrial area and service investigated, it was found that identification number systems used uniquely for each industry varied. There is no standardized identification scheme used dominantly, but entry of each identification scheme into the IoT environment will play an essential role in implementing IoT service in various fields, such as smart farm, smart city, smart manufacturing, smart building, smart transportation, smart medical care, etc. Services and products in the initial stage of IoT currently implemented are themselves serving as a unique identifier or use a smart sticker or local area communication technology. In terms of technology, they are based on technologies centered on sensing and network rather than technologies about identification scheme. Application/Improvements: Not all IoT services must use an identification scheme in the future, an analysis of demands for identification schemes should precede, and based on this, a cost-benefit analysis is needed.
474 A High Temperature Measuring Device Development for Die Casting Molten Metal Deposition , Yong-Ho Kim and Hong-Sang Yoon  
Background/Objectives: International market competitive power but also to expect importing substitution effect. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A temperature measuring device connected to a R-type thermocouple (temperature range 0℃ to 1,700℃) displays detected temperature using Flexible Number Display (FND). The device not only can use an external power employing an external adapter (9Vdc constant voltage, 400mA) but also can be operated by a built-in battery (four AA size, 1.2Vdc).

475 Efficient Search for Data with Numerical and Categorical Attributes Based on Dual Locality-Sensitive Hashing , Kyung Mi Lee and Keon Myung Lee  
Background/Objectives: Similarity search is a fundamental task in many domains. For large volumes of data, it is sometimes preferable to obtain approximate results instead of pursuing exact results that require long computation times. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The proposed method expresses a query using a fuzzy ball for the numerical data space and a conjunction of ground or general terms for categorical domains. It exploits a dual locality-sensitive hashing technique that constructs separate locality-sensitive hashing tables for the numerical and categorical data spaces. It determines buckets for a query by considering the relative distances of the numerical part of the query to the subspace boundaries and using concept hierarchies for the categorical attributes. It may also use a Bloom filter to select the candidate data set to be examined from among the determined buckets. Findings: The proposed approximate search technique was applied to two data sets. The portions of data to be examined were 0.02712% and 0.00084% for the first and the second data set. The average numbers of numerical buckets examined were 1.42 and 2.53 for the data sets, respectively. The figures mean that the proposed method significantly reduces the number of candidates to be considered and hence saves greatly computation cost. In addition, the proposed method is unique that it can be applied to data set with both numerical and categorical attributes. Improvements/Applications: The proposed locality-sensitive hashing method can be applied to approximate search tasks for large volume of data containing both numerical and categorical attributes.

479 The Effect of Robot Programming Education on Attitudes towards Robots , Seong-won Kim and Youngjun Lee  
Abstract Background/Objectives: How robot programming education affects the attitude of pre-service teachers toward robots was analyzed, along with how pre-service teachers appreciate robot programming classes. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this research, the Negative Attitude toward Robots Scale of Nomura et al. was used as a test tool. Research subjects were divided into an experimental group taking robot programming education and a control group taking ordinary classes. Both groups took a test to indicate their attitudes toward robots before and after the experiment; the experimental group also took a test asking their appreciation of robot programming education. Each group’s test results were analyzed using paired t-tests and independent t-tests. The attitude toward robot programming education was analyzed through frequency analysis. Findings: Before the experiment, the groups’ results did not show statistically significant differences; however, after the experiment, they did. Comparing pre- and post-testing of each group, the control group showed no significant difference; however, the experimental group showed significant difference. This implied that robot programming education affected pre-service teachers’ attitudes toward robots, especially in a positive way. When asked their attitude toward robots, pre-service teachers answered that programming education promoted more interest in robots because they could make and realized with their own hand; however, the design and the assembly of robot would be negative. Pre-existing research had only studied attitudes toward robots and compared them by countries or investigated effect elements. This research focused on not only the attitude of pre-service teachers toward robots but also elements that could improve those attitudes. In follow-up studies, researchers could attempt to solve the imbalance of research subjects and add the group taking programming classes. Application/Improvements: The result of this study could be used for the development of robot education programs and basic material for the training of teachers

486 Improving Efficiency of Data Centres in India: A Review.  , Avinash Aslekar and Pramod Damle 
In the past decade, India has witnessed an exponential increase in the demand for digital storage, from 1 petabyte in 2001 to more than 34 petabytes by 2007. They also continue to grow at a compounded rate of 25-30%. Datacenter growth is driven by increasing requirements from the sectors such as financial institutions, telecom operators, manufacturing and services. While large financial institutions and telecom companies are likely to build captive Datacenters for hosting their growing data storage needs, Datacenter service providers are expected to invest significantly to multiply their capacities, so as to fulfill the demand arising from small and midsize users. Datacenter is highly energy intensive. With the increasing energy cost, the increase in operational cost is inevitable. Therefore it becomes necessary to reduce the energy consumption to offset the increasing operational cost and to maintain competitiveness. Hence the Datacenters in India need to incorporate innovative designs for energy efficiency and embrace the concept of “Green IT” for sustained growth. Existing Datacenters need to adopt the best practices in design, operation and maintenance to achieve operational excellence. New datacenters have to adopt the energy efficiency measures by design. The objective of this paper l is to identify the best practices followed in Indian Datacenters as well as provide guidelines on incorporating energy efficiency aspects at design stage for new datacenter. Design/methodology/approach – Conducting research exploring secondary data and web based resources including white papers, consolidating research articles, industrial and technological hypothecation.

488 Digital Marketing and Wordpress , Semila Fernandes and A. Vidyasagar 
DigitalMarketing–definedMichaelPorterhas said:Thekeyquestionisnotwhether todeployDigitalTechnology–companies have no choice if they want to stay competitive – but how to deploy it. Digital marketing describes the management and execution of marketing using electronic media such as the web, e-mail, interactive TV and wireless media in conjunction with digital data about customers’ characteristics and behavior. Mass customization is a necessity today and hence digital marketing is yet another channel that provides touch points for improved customer relations. Digital marketing is one effective way to address this necessity with various touchpoints/sub-channels like FaceBook, LinkedIn, Blogs, Twitter, and the website itself. In modern parlance, it has now been accepted that customers are exposed to 3 screens: 1st Screen: Television, 2nd Screen: Computer Monitor, 3rd Screen: The Mobile Handset. Does that mean that we have to create content for each of them separately? Fortunately, with the advent of strong CMS like WordPress, this duplication of work is now a thing of the past. Atleast, the last two screens are clearly addressed by the responsive themes of WordPress. Today there are a few smart TVs in the market that can connect to the web and there are no issues with WordPress delivered content. Methodology: The first study of the paper would analyze the role of WordPress and its advantages. The second study would highlight on the study of SEO plugins and its importance while using WordPress. The third study would focus on whether WordPress as a standalone system can address the CMS and how “plugins” can enhance its application and usability. The above studies would be dealt using secondary research data like research papers, journals and websites. Conclusions: Currently, DD India covers over 92% of the population. But the penetration of TVs has not kept in tune with this. On the flipside, TVs are viewed in groups. Given that DD India was established in 1959, it has been over 65 years before this could be achieved. The internet launched in mid 90s has 243 million internet users in the country to people who use computers and laptops.(8) What is astounding is that smart phones which came in several years later today has already achieved a penetration near to 50% both in rural and urban areas of India. Given this trend, it is only a matter of time that Mobile penetration exceeds that of Doordarshan – The 1st Screen. What is more relevant is that each Mobile is a personal product of an individual unlike the other two screens.
489 A Study on Birth Prediction and BCG Vaccine Demand Prediction using ARIMA Analysis , Keun-Won Kim , Guozhong  , Seong-Taek Park and Mi-Hyun Ko  
Background/Objectives: This study was conducted to solve the problem by predicting vaccine demand in advance through analysis of progress of birth of newborn babies in our country. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The deducted problem was defined and information, data, and use analysis method and planning procedures for creating alternatives for this issue were conducted. Afterwards, R which is an open source analysis tool was used to analysis and for visualization. In this analysis, a time series model (ARIMA model, Box-Jenkins methodology) was used to predict demand and perform the research to predict the number of births in Republic of Korea. Findings: The tuberculosis vaccines in Korea are currently being entirely of imported ones. However, the import volume often lacks meeting the demand. In this paper, research was performed to predict the demand of tuberculosis vaccines to secure vaccine stock. As result of analysis, the number of births next year was predicted to be 445,558 (in 2016). Also, analyzed results showed that approximately 388,251 to 502,864 babies will be born in reliability level of 85% and that approximately 357,915 to 533,200 babies will be born in reliability level of 95%. Vaccine should be prepared standard to the minimum value within error range because vaccines have expiration dates. Also, if more births occur than the predicted result, the issue can be coped in prior plans of preparing BCG seal-type vaccines by comparing with monthly predicted number of births. Application/Improvements: The results of this study will be applied to the ways to politically solve problems such as supply and demand of BCG vaccine for the expected newborns.
490  Where Indian Pharma Corporates Stand – Study With Reference To Corporate Governance Practices and CSR , Mita Mehta and Arti Chandani 
Good governance entails responsibility and due regard to the expectations of all stakeholders (Kendall, 1999); not a single corporate can evaluated on the basis of economic parameters only which is profit, but they are also to be judged by their social and economic contributions. CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) has become buzz not in India but also in all over the world. After announcement of New Companies Act 2013, in most of the corporate and business debate it has become topic of discussion. No doubt that importance of CSR emerged ominously in last few years; Indian corporate sector has also witnessed the shift from philanthropic CSR to dedicated CSR activities5. CSR and Corporate Governance issues are now not limited to Board room but it is a tool to evaluate the strategic significance of corporate contribution towards inclusive growth. Companies have become more translucent and attentive towards their CSR goals and reporting of the same. This paper seeks to explore the trends in CSR practices among top five Indian pharma and healthcare listed companies. Here attempt has been made to draw the findings of whether companies engaging themselves in good CSR practices as per regulators guidelines are better at the performance and growth or there is no correlation between these two variables. Authors have theoretically understood the concept and trends at international and National level with the help of literature review and then researchers have made the empirical study of top Indian corporate houses by studying their CSR data of last five years. Research topic is bit exhaustive, that is why Researchers have used tables to conclude the research.
491  Strategic HR for Sustainable Business in Technology Driven 21st C.  , Pradnya V. Chitrao 
The 21st C is characterized by radical technological, economic, and social changes. Full development and diffusion of the earlier century innovations has been reflected in mass production techniques, consumption patterns, and the style of functioning of the government. Improved information has enabled the affordability of technology for the common man. Information technology has broughtin automated knowledge work tools, advanced robotics, and 3Dprinting.It has enabled people to work from home thereby ensuring freedom of choice as to where and how they live and work. Various changes including economic ones are pushing organizations to re-evaluate the way they do business and to evolve alternative approaches to work. Flexible work timings and advanced telecommunication that includes conference calling, video conferencing and on line data transfer are some of the 21st C work practices that obviate the need for physical travel and inter alia, counter factors like steep increase in fuel prices. It is also forecast that the Gen Y generation emphasis on work life balance will strategically impact the workplace in the near future. It is also foreseen that increasingly sophisticated Information Technology tools and IT enabled progressive business processes will lead to production processes that are less wasteful, error free in a much higher degree and in turn deliver products that are more sustainable environmentally. On the other hand, on a more ominous note, the shape of the new things has the potential to seriously impact the already fragile demographic equilibrium of the world, if effective countermeasures are not put in place by the business leaders and policy makers. The demographics of the new workforce, the changes in how people will conduct business along with what that “business” will look like, and the impact technology will have on both will have a major impact on the role of business, the nature of work, the way work is accomplished and the human resources (HR) organization itself. Culturally diverse work forces also will need to be trained to be sensitive to each other’s needs and to work as a team towards fulfilment of organization’s goals.

Background/Objectives: In this study, the outer diameter of the detachable coil used for cerebral aneurysm coil embolization was evaluated objectively through quantitative analysis. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Out of the helical shape coils from three companies that had failed coil embolization from January 2012 to May 2015, the outer diameter of 120 coils (20 from each company) with the diameter of 1.5 mm, and 2.0 mm were measured with an optical microscope and compared with the outer diameter of the coil before insertion. Findings: For the coils from all three companies, there were not any significant changes for the outer diameter after keeping the coils in a water bath at 37℃ for 10 and 20 minutes, respectively. For the 1.5 mm sized coils, the average outer diameters before insertion were 1,860μm for coils from company S, 1,530μm for C and 1,554μm for M. Similarly, for the 2.0 mm sized coils, the averages were 2,372μm for company S, 2,038μm for C, and 2,056μm for M, which were larger than the sizes proposed by the companies. After failure, the average changes in outer diameter were 2,074μm for company S, 1,535μm for C and 1,558μm for M measured for the 1.5 mm sized coils, and 2,581μm for company S, 2,043μm for C, and 2,062μm for M among the 2.0 mm sized size coils. The change in the average was the largest for coils from company S, which showed a statistical significance (p<0.05). Also, the shorter the length of a given coil, the smaller the changes seen in the diameter. Application/ Improvements: The coils from companies C and M maintained reproducibility; that is, they maintained the original shape after the insertion failure, and did not show significant changes in the outer diameter.

Background/Objectives:The image quality was degraded due to the image noise in accordance with the performance improvement of diagnostic DR system. This study aims to present and recommend the effect on an image when hospitalized patients undergo the examination without wearing an examination gown in the chest PA test using radiography. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The experiment in this study was conducted by using the DR system of DK Company. In regard to the comparison experiment between the patient gown and the examination gown, Thorax Phantom was utilized. The Phantom specification is RS-111. The image was obtained by utilizing AEC by varying the dose (mAs) and tube voltage (kVp) while putting both the patient gown and the examination gown on the phantom. Then, the gray value of the obtained image was measured based on the 7 points that were to measure the density at the Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association through the Image J program. Findings: In the case of descriptive statistics, it was found that there was only a small number of the factors that inhibited the quality of an image because the examination gown was closer to the mean value of phantom than the patient gown on the basis of the phantom. As for the analysis in relation to the measurement area, there was a significant difference at the 2 point spot and the 7 point spot in relation to the patient gown and examination gown of phantom in accordance with the tube voltage. As for the correlation analysis, there was a significant difference between the phantom, the patient gown and the examination gown. Hence, there was a relationship between these three groups. The most influencing factor of the DR development is the patient gown or the examination gown. Application/Improvements: It is believed that it would be possible to enhance the quality of an image by conducting an examination with the examination gown and comparing it with the patient gown in the radiography lab.
498 How Social Media Gives You Competitive Advantage. , M. L. Singla and Apoorv Durga 
The world over, it is being recognized that the Gen-Y of the workforce is different from the earlier generation of workers. The younger employees are more technology savvy and carry over their expectations of the social media world to their work places. However, the best way to organize and benefit from this trend is still evolving and we are learning as we go along. On the one hand, there are a lot of expectations and on the other hand, there are many examples of failed social media initiatives. There is a lack of structured frameworks and vast majority of executives have no idea of how to analyze social media. In this article, we will explore how to systematically analyze social media in the context of Competitive Advantage as proposed by Porter in his 1985 work6. This will provide a basis to develop a framework with which to analyze and implement social media.

500 Analysing Software Metrics for Accurate Dynamic Defect Prediction Models , Shilpee Chamoli  , Gil Tenne and Sanjay Bhatia 
Defect Prediction Models are widely used in many software products. These estimates help assessing the risks of defect leakage objectively. However, Most of the published Defect prediction models do not necessarily fit in providing estimates for large complex telecom billing solutions. We have tried to analyze the accuracy of the Prediction model based on various software metrics. It is important to understand the relation between different software metrics for accurate software defect prediction. The Telecom Billing solutions have complex applications, configurations, size and parameters. We have tried to correctly identify the Software Metrics that affect the accuracy of the software Defect prediction models. This paper presents an evaluation; software metrics are investigated in order to identify the ones which significantly impact the accuracy of defects prediction models. We found that Historical Defect Density, Removal rates can help in accurate Defect prediction. Data from various projects is collected and analyzed. The prediction of the models, with and without metrics is compared. To access whether the improvements are significant or not, analysis on the accuracy of the Defect prediction is done. It was found that metrics such as Defect Density, Removal rates, trend of absolute number of defects along with Effort for a particular application, significantly affects the accuracy of a Defect prediction tool. Also behavior of one application may or may not be similar to another application. Thus, to have an accurate prediction, we should attempt at avoiding generalization.

503 Form-Finding of Tensegrity Structures based on Force Density Method , Aparna Harichandran  and I. Yamini Sreevalli  
Background/Objectives: Determining equilibrium configuration of a tensegrity structure is known as form-finding. This paper critically reviews various form-finding techniques based on force density method. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: The most appropriate method out of all the form-finding methods, to ascertain new formation of tensegrity structures is Force density method. The techniques based on Force density method such as Advanced form-finding method, Adaptive force density method, Form-finding via Genetic algorithm and Algebraic tensegrity form-finding are reviewed in detail along with scope, limitation and suitability of each method. Findings: This paper lists out the input and output parameters of each technique and comparing the effectiveness of each. Most of these methods require only type of the member (tension or compression) and topology of the tensegrity structure provided by connectivity matrix as initial parameters. Formfinding of regular shaped structures such as cable domes is best performed by Advanced form-finding method. Adaptive form-finding method is found to be efficient for irregular shaped structures and also to search novel configurations. Formfinding by means of genetic algorithm provides solutions for regular shaped tensegrity structures. Algebraic method is found to be highly efficient and automated general method among all the form-finding methods discussed in this paper. A structure’s evolving geometry can be better regulated by this method. Applications/ Improvements: This paper presents the techniques which require minimum initial parameters for form-finding of tensegrity structures which also helps in choice of methods based on known parameters of the structure.
504 The Human Resource Issues and their Impact on Firm Growth in Small e-businesses in China.  , Tingting Lang and Bhumika Gupta 
This paper studies the human resource issues in small e-businesses in China through questionnaire survey about online shoppers and current employees in e-commerce companies, interviews with human resource managers who are now working in successful e-commerce firms and thosewho haveworked before in the broken e-businesswebsites.E-businesses inevitably confront with the human resource dilemma, especially when they rely on high-quality service for differentiation. In order to deliver infinite scalability,these firms need to reduce their dependence on human resource.However insufficient human resource investment impedes the firm growth. Analyzing how these issues impede the firm growth, by developing the case study of comparing two Chinese B2C websites, Jindong, one of the leading B2C websites, and Vipshop, one of the small e-businesses struggling to “tip” in the market, recommendations are given to small e-businesses to improve their human resource and promote the firm growth.

India has seen the development of the capital market since its globalisation and liberalisation policies which took place in 1992. The Government introduced various reforms in the capital market to give boost to economy. It has recently introduced a few changes which helped MSMEs to raise funds from the capital market. These reforms specially include dedicated stock exchange for SMEs and another step is towards Crowd Funding. Crowd funding provides a channel for SMEs to raise funds through capital market. The crowd funding is still at a consultation stage for SMEs. This paper proposed to study the framework and its applicability for micro-enterprises. Crowd funding is used with the help of extending small amounts by large number of investors on online platform/social media. There are various models of crowd funding. We propose a model of crowd funding along with its financial evaluation for Micro Enterprises.
506 FDI and Export: The Monetary and Financial Dilemma in China , AN Jia , LI Jing and WANG Wanru 
This paper focuses on the Monetary and Financial Dilemma in China recently. As is known to all, the FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) has a significant effect on the economic development of this country in China. The increase of FDI and the export by foreign funded enterprises not only lead to a double surplus of balance of payments, but also speed up the growth of china’s foreign exchange reserves which leads a change on the monetary base in this country, and eventually impact on monetary and financial condition. Paper based on the monthly data from 2001 to 2014 including China’s FDI and export by foreign funded enterprises and money supply. Firstly, test the causality among FDI and FDI export and the money supply used the Granger Causality Tests. Secondly, build two functions of pulling rate and contribution rate. The results of Granger Causality Tests have proved that FDI and FDI export is the granger cause of money supply. FDI and FDI export make a significant contribution to China’s money supply and it is one of the factors that lead to monetary and financial condition changed with a dilemma.
507 A Study on Progressive Collapse Behavior of Steel Structures Subjected to Fire Loads , C. R. Chidambaram , Jainam Shah, A. Sai Kumar and K. Karthikeyan   
Progressive collapse is one of the main reasons for the failure of structure. It occurs due to removal/ damage of a column or a shear wall by fire, blast or vehicle impact. In this study, aG+7 moment resisting steel frame residential building was analysed using ETABS to predict the sensitivity of the structure to progressive collapse due to fire loads. Columns at different levels were given a temperature of 550̊ C with reduced material properties and yield strength as per code IS 800. Progressive collapse load combination was adoptedas per GSA guidelines. Corner, edge, intermediate and re-entrant columns were removed separately at alternate storeys. The lower storeys were found to be more susceptible than the upper storeys. The structure may be redesigned to avoid progressive collapse, with a significant increase in steel consumption. This study can be useful for important structures..

The telecom industry has been one that has had to deal with a continuously changing business and technology environment more than most other industries over the past half century. Traditionally the principal revenue streams for telecom operators have been voice and messaging (SMS) with data coming in at a far third till recently. But while telcos had been quick to react to previous game changing developments such as the internet explosion and the emergence of cellular mobile communications in the 1990s, they seem to have been caught napping in the face of the newest challenge to their revenues, Over The Top (OTT) service providers. The growing impact of OTT services on telcos’ voice and messaging revenue is a widely accepted phenomenon. Their impact on mobile data traffic and telco data revenue is also areas that have been acknowledged as critical points for consideration. This study attempts to link these issues to shift in consumer preferences, identify the underlying factors there of and to understand the factors driving users towards OTT services.
509 GCMT- 249 Investigation and Performance Analysis of Direct Torque Control of 3φ Induction Motor using 7 Level Neutral Point Clamped Multilevel Inverter , S. Priya, A. Suresh and M. R. Rashm
Objective: This work discusses with Direct Torque Control (DTC) of Induction motor using 7 Level NPC Multilevel inverter for reducing the complexity in conventional DTC method. Methods: The limitation of traditional DTC scheme is more distortion in torque profile and the mean torque output never meets the torque demand. To get better performance of the traditional DTC a Space Vector Modulation (SVM) technique is projected to meet the torque and flux demands at low speeds. Findings: By designing 7 level NPC for DTC of induction motor and thereby simplifying the classical DTC method and in very particular this paper is minimizing the complications in Torque and Flux control at minimal speeds by decoupling the torque and flux controls and also reduces the ripples in current and torque profile. 7 level NPC is introduced in this paper which helps in eliminating the torque disturbances into minimum. The proposed 7 level inverter uses less number of switches and neutral-point fluctuations are absent in this model. Detached DC supplies are employed for the DC links which carries the ripple current. The proposed inverter topology provided the required magnitudes and phases of voltage and current vectors to meet the desired load values with fewer harmonic content due to superior level inverter and less distortion in torque profile obtained in the closed loop DTC technique.1 The DTC of Induction Motor simulated by implementing the SVM technique using 7 level NPC and the simulation results are experimentally validated.Improvements: The steady state torque and speed output have less ripple content which reduces the oscillation with a quick response at steady state was investigated.

511  Cloud Computing: An Exploratory Study on Adoption among SME Clusters in Bangalore and Mysore , Jayalaxmi P. Shetty and H. Kiran Kumar 
The constant evolution of computing has helped businesses to automate and innovate, providing them a competitive advantage in the global marketplace. Nevertheless, with the coming of the Cloud, organizations are once again at the crossroad of technology. Early adoption of the Cloud can provide organizations with an opportunity to transform their business models and gain a competitive edge. While cost reduction is one of the benefits, several other benefits accrue to organizations. This paper is aimed at exploring the need for adoption of Cloud computing in the electronic and print clusters in Bangalore and Mysore. To this end, we explore the factors that drive SME clusters to employ cloud computing while gaining additional insights by examining barriers to cloud computing. This study employs regression methodology to determine the significance of each identified factor with respect to adaptability of cloud computing among the SME clusters, thereby determining which of the factors can make an impact on the adaptability. The study conducted among two SME clusters in Bangalore and Mysore revealed that none of the factors had a significant impact on the adaptability, rendering the result not in line with potential suppositions.
512 A Study on Utilization Plan for Affordance Theorybased Virtual Reality Contents , Kim Ji Hye , Kim Jin Gon and Lee Kyoung Hak  
Background/Objectives: Virtual reality content is changing into a form of pursuing experience and convenience as it gradually emphasizes user interaction, and user-centric designs and interfaces like UI/UX are performing important roles in creating a new communication and interaction. Thus, when designing content for a virtual environment, a design environment that allows users to focus within the virtual space, toward the cognitive factor, must be created by means of user comprehension and experience. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Current virtual reality content requires adaptive learning in terms of new device control, with various devices and interaction functions. Hence, studies, in accordance with the cognitive process from virtual reality, are necessary in order to achieve an effective experience based on virtual reality content, because user needs in regards to comprehension and convenience toward new environments are being generated. The present study analyzes virtual reality contents based on cognitive affordance theory through information and behavior detected by visual perception in order to achieve efficiency for convenient environments, utility, and user participation expansion, which is achieved by restricting contents to those only of the CAVE system type. Findings: The sub-elements of cognitive affordance theory are divided into perception, function, and behavior, and the data analyzing the correlation in accordance with each type of virtual reality content establishes a theory for an efficient virtual reality content usage plan, presenting a utilization model. Research on contents based on cognitive affordance has been positively affected by content understanding and focus, affected from the perception factor out of each cognitive affordance element. Application/ Improvements: Such results show that more convenient environments for users will be built and content satisfaction will be increased, and may be presented as an efficient utilization plan for virtual reality content development.

We have been practicing leadership values from the time when human being came into existence. The rise of professional approach in business has later on brought newapproaches in leadershipwhich has changed theway ofworking entirely.The new approach focused on stakeholders, customers, innovations, human approach and brand building. With the changing business scenario and changing generations, leadership style has also changed which has influenced leadership values also. This article focuses on the leadership values and its business impact. A research was conducted through administrating ‘The Leadership Q-sort Test’ amongst senior management people. This test was concerned with the leadership dimension of values - personal integrity, consideration for others, mental health, information, decision making and communication. The tool has assessed an individual’s values with respect to the leadership role in it. Based on the analysis, business impact of leadership values was seen and suggestions were made. Individual values are dissimilar and leaders need to understand how to use their own values to drive the creation of goals and strategies, optimize value for shareholders and stakeholders by determining sustainable vision for their organization and translate them into the operative values of employees to create tomorrow’s organization. Leaders also need to transform their leadership style to revolutionize the organization’s culture by implementing value creation strategies for the organization which will bring everyone on the same platform. By understanding and unleashing the invisible forces of leadership values, the motivational driving force can be implemented in the organization’s culture.

Floods refers to the condition of great overflow of water over a dry land. In malaysia, monsoon flood which cause by the heavy rain in monsoon seasons regularly hits the country. A criteria of the cloud based on horizontal and vertical profile of radar reflectivity have been analyzed in this paper to estimate flood event. The values of the thickness and the size of the cloud are estimated from the analysis. In this paper, we analyze the river basin data and radar data in the duration of flooding time, T for the specific area covered by meteorological radar and rain gauge data. The procedure was applied to 14 days precipitation phenomenon observed in Kota Bharu, Kelantan (Malaysia) from 13 December 2014 until 26 December 2014. The objective of this paper is to analyse the distinctiveness of the cloud during flood events. The result shows that during the critical time of flood disaster, the cloud shows largest size of 13070.6 km2 and the thickness appeared to be the largest at almost 10.2 km during the beginning of the rain fall. The analysis helps us to understand the cloud characteristics hence in future flood estimation model can be constructed and modelled.

Background/Objectives: Mobile data traffic over IP has grown very rapidly in size. This huge increase in size creates high demand performance on network that supports mobile multicast services. This motivates the development of a better performance procedure with better signaling cost. Methods/Statistical analysis: A mathematical evaluation of signaling cost for multicast network mobility management namely Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6). The signaling cost is derived from a novel combination of Multicast only Fast Reroute (MFR) and predictive Context Transfer (CT) with network mobility management. The signaling cost is designated base on the improved signaling call flow of the advanced method combination. It is calculated as the location updates and the packet delivery cost of the call flow. Findings: This combined procedure helps to mitigate unnecessary multicast network mobility traffic as usage increases. From the results it is clearly shows that the location update for the advanced signaling cost remain consistent regardless of the traffic usage. Where else for the standard method the signaling cost increases significantly, in parallel with the traffic increase. This is hardly because of the reduced location updates and the packet delivery cost of the novel combination procedure. Therefore through this implementation better signaling cost formula is brought forward. Application/Improvements: The advanced signaling cost helps to overcome performance degradation in multicast mobility management application such as live Internet video, Internet-video-to-TV, online video, webcam viewing, video conference and web-based video monitoring.

538 Refining Ku-Band Rain Attenuation Prediction using Local Parameters in Tropics   , Refining Ku-Band Rain Attenuation Prediction using Local Parameters in Tropics    
Background/Objectives: Researches disclosed rain attenuation prediction models offered by ITU-R severely underestimate the signal attenuation in tropical region. Improvement can be accomplished by incorporating three in-situ parameters of prediction models. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The locally derived components are rainfall rate, rain height and specific attenuation coefficients. Beacon signal data for MEASAT-I satellite were sampled for one year. Sampling time of 1 minute was chosen for rainfall rate. Both attenuation and rainfall rate were represented in terms of annual cumulative distribution. Rain height data were gathered from related researches and visually compared with radar data of 10 convective and 30 stratiform rain events. Findings: In previous works, these components were treated separately. By combining all three components, rain attenuation prediction model with distinctive accuracy can be acquired compared to the previous results. All previous and current works exhibited significant improvement from the latest ITU-R P.618 revision 12 model. The new result closely fitted in with measured attenuation which was not present in any previous work. This was shown by RMS error of 2.02 dB at availability of 99.9% to 99.999% (0.1% to 0.001% exceedance). Application/ Improvements: Accurate representation of fade margin can be included in link budget analysis by designers for satellite deployment in tropical region.

545 A Robust Model Predictive Control for Balancing of an Inverted Pendulum , Arbab Aimal Khan , Mohsin Jamil, Syed Omer Gilani and Qasim Awais  
This paper presents a methodology to design robust predictive controller for the balancing of an inverted pendulum. The inverted pendulum is one of the most difficult control problem in which the pendulum needs to be balanced against the cart, which moves only in two directions to the left or to the right. A new robust controller is designed to balance the pendulum and produces results which are more effective and fast. A Model Predictive Control (MPC) and PID control strategies are applied for controlling the system equations of the inverted pendulum model and are analyzed and compared. The results of controllers implemented in MATLAB shows that both the strategies are able to control the system but robust model predictive control strategy gives better response as compared to conventional PID controller.
546 A Model based Resource Recommender System on Social Tagging Data , V. Vijeya Kaveri and V. Maheswari  
Web (2.0) is the place where people can upload, share and access various sources of information. Web (2.0) has given rise to information overloading problem and knowledge starvation. Recommender Systems (RS) helps in alleviating this overloading problem and gaining the exact information what we need. RS suggest user items or products based on their browsing or purchasing history. RS suggest list of items by identifying similar users with explicit user-item rating. But, in real time applications most users do not rate items. In current web (2.0) social tagging applications help us to find useritem ratings implicitly based on the user’s interest and preferences they give for the list of items. In this paper we have proposed a model based resource recommendation on social tagging information which has improved the performance of the RS. In the proposed system the topic is identified from the tagged data, based on the topic user profile is constructed by semantic approach and the recommendation is done for the user.
547 The Prosodic Conditions in Robot’s TTS for Children as Beginners in English Learning   , Jiyoung In and Jeonghye Han  
A robot’s recognition and diagnosis of pronunciation and its speech are the most important interactions in RALL. This paper analyzes para verbal characteristics, F0 range and speaking rate, in English TTS engine speech which falls in the category of robot speech for Korean learners as beginners. In the actual result of this research, beginners did not change before and after repeating robot TTS, however it was confirmed that the speaking rate as the other prosodic variable increased close to the robot TTS’s speaking speed. Therefore robot TTS can be a suitable educational means to correct errors and train for speaking rate of English learners. However, it is still inadequate for the average F0 range of native speakers.
548 A Study on Some Tasks, Corpus and Resources of Medical Information Retrieval , P. Gayathri and N. Jaisankar  
Background/Objectives: This paper gives an overview of some tasks involved in the retrieval process, corpus and resources of medical information retrieval. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Inverted file representation method is used in the retrieval process for associating documents in the corpus with various search terms. Conventional statistical ranking functions such as Jaccard, Okapi and Euclidean have been widely used for ranking retrieved medical documents. An extractive informative generic mono-lingual single-document summarizer is used to produce medical domain-specific summary. Sentence ranking method is used to include most appropriate sentences in the final summary. Findings: Studies reveal that people are searching the web and read medical related information in order to be informed about their health. In the medical domain, richest and most used source of information is MEDLINE. Because of frequent use of acronyms in the medical literature, using the term that appears in documents as keywords for document indexing would not be effective. Also, using Bag of Words representation could not capture the semantic meaning of terms. Some domain-specific thesauri like UMLS, MeSH and Gene ontology are available for biomedical retrieval. These domain-specific thesauri can provide synonyms, hypernyms and hyponyms of a specific term but it does not look into the context. Therefore, the retrieval results of using domain-specific thesauri are somewhat conflicting. It is possible to identify which lexical variant of specific term should be used under specific context by using Wikipedia as resource for biomedical retrieval. Conventional ranking functions fail to capture the inherent features of natural language text. Evolutionary algorithm based ranking can enhance the retrieval performance. Any domain-specific summarizer must consider similarity between sentences as essential feature for summarization. Applications/Improvements: Improvements in retrieval results is achieved by using context-aware keywords as indexing keywords and highly robust hybrid evolutionary algorithm based ranking function for ordering the retrieved documents

551 Enhanced Power Control Algorithm in Cognitive Radio for Multimedia Communication , C. T. Manimegalai, K. Kalimuthu, Sabitha Gauni and R. Kumar  
Background/Objectives: In underlay cognitive radio network, the power control systems play a major role where the secondary users should not affect the primary users transmission. The interference constraints are not attained by all users as the Signal to Interference Noise Ratio (SINR) of the target requirement is not satisfied in the distributed algorithm for power control. Hence, an algorithm is proposed to reduce the power and to regulate the interference constraints of the primary and secondary users. The SINR also has to be maintained. In the proposed method, the distributed statistical algorithm is used when the interference constraints is not available when all transmitters are in active mode to obtain an efficient solution. Methods: In order to minimize the level of SINR for each link between primary and secondary user, a distributed algorithm for power control is proposed. The traditional power control algorithms are used to maintain the secondary users transmission within specific power levels. The main drawback of the traditional algorithms is that the constraints are not met when all the transmitters are active. Result: A Power minimizing algorithm along with the distributed statistical elimination algorithm, to suppress the transmission of selected number of links when all the nodes are active is proposed. This satisfies the SINR requirement of the secondary links. Application: The proposed elimination algorithm enables the optimized power distribution, hence it is a more practical solution in networks with increased number of secondary users. Keywords: Cognitive Radio N

553 Study on the Impact of Big Data Traffic Caused by the Unstable Routing Protocol     , Hyoung woo Park, Il Yeon Yeo, Haengjin Jang and NamGyu Kim  
Thousands of CPUs and storages are required for the analysis of scientific peta-byte scale data. The network interfaces of these systems are connected on a data center network for cluster computing and Grid computing for high throughput. Therefore, routing configuration of these network interfaces is usually set by internal routing protocols and set by having the only single gateway as a last resort or a default routing path. This style of routing configuration is the most typical configuration of routing protocols for the network of the legacy data center. And, as the volume of data is getting dramatically increasing due to the popularization of big data services, data center rapidly grow to have hundreds of thousands servers. Therefore, real routing path frequently changes by the fault of network devices or systems in large-scale data center environment even though data center networks works well apparently. The inefficiency of this kind of routing scheme caused by the instability of the internal routing protocol begins to appear as a considerable problem in big data center network management lately. In this paper, we showed the serious decrease of the throughput due to very short flapping time of the internal routing protocol by NS2 simulation.

Objective: The primary motive of this research is to improve the quality of service in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks by reducing the packet loss and average delay in the network. Methods: In this manuscript, an innovative metric called Node Encounter Rate (NER) is introduced based on the concept of nodes encountered during network operation. Findings: Network simulation results show that the dynamic estimation of the metric improves throughput by 47%, by this means reducing the loss and delay by 53% and 52% respectively. As per the comparison results, the proposed approach works better compared to the existing schemes also providing increased quality of service. The control packets are reduced because of routing through stable paths. In addition, the packets are forwarded over the paths that avoid high mobility scenarios. Novelty: The simulation outcome reveals that the Node Encounter Rate (NER) has high quality of service compared to the existing scheme under mobile scenarios.
555 N. Vivekananthamoorthy, E. R. Naganathan and R. Rajkumar   , Determinant Factors on Student Empowerment and Role of Social Media and eWOM Communication: Multivariate Analysis on LinkedIn usage
Background/Objectives: In recent times, there is phenomenal increase in usage of Social Networking Sites like Facebook, LinkedIn etc. by college students and young professionals. This study focuses on identifying key factors that influence LinkedIn usage and the role of eWOM communication in enhancing social connectivity and engagement of students in meaningful activities to improve their social and academic standings. A theoretical model on social networking by students is proposed and the results and recommendations of this study will be brought to practical use towards student empowerment. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A preliminary survey was conducted to understand how young university students use the Social Networking Site LinkedIn and the responses were used to frame a questionnaire. A second level survey was conducted among the same set of participants by collecting their responses in five point Likert Scale. Exploratory Factor Analysis was conducted using the LinkedIn Survey responses to identify the hidden factors associated with the indicator items in the data set. Subsequently, a theoretical model was constructed using Structural Equation Modeling principles, depicting the interrelationships between the latent constructs and indicator items constituting a measurement model and a structural model. Four Hypotheses were framed such that Social Media Usage and eWOM communication have significant positive effect on Student Empowerment. Finally, Confirmatory factor analysis was done to prove the hypotheses and to analyze how well the model fits into the theory. The software IBM SPSS, and AMOS 23 were used to perform multivariate statistical analysis on the LinkedIn Survey response items. Findings: The exploratory study on LinkedIn Usage Survey responses revealed three latent factors that accounted for 69.462 percent of the total variance. The three key factors explaining the eWOM behavior of students in LinkedIn usage were Expert Opinion Seeking, Networking with Professionals and Notification of Profile Changes. The latent factors and associated relationships were used to frame a theoretical model based on SEM techniques. Based on Confirmatory factor analysis done on this model using the data set revealed that the model supported the hypotheses H1, H2, H3 and H4 and all indicators in the model significantly loaded to their respective factors and the predicting variables had a significant positive effect on the predicted variable. The factor loadings were fair to excellent ranging from .634 to .853 and the test for model fitness showed good fitness result based on value of various fitness indices which were within accepted limits. Based on CFA, the important fitness indices and their values arrived at were: CMIN/df = 2.022, NFI = 0.824, TLI = 0.887, RMSEA = 0.098 and CFI = 0.901. Improvements/Applications: The accuracy of the predicting ability of the proposed theoretical model can be improved by augmenting this research study and statistical analysis to be extended to a larger target group belonging to different institutions to achieve good model fit as well as for testing the scalability of the model. As a future work, this model can be integrated with online learning systems also with the aim of improving student engagement in the current online learning scenarios.
556 A Study on Factors Affecting the Youth Employment Rate: Focusing on Data from 31 Cities and Counties in Gyeonggi-Do, South Korea   , Jae Hoon Han, Yen Yoo You and Kwan-Sik Na  
In order to explore the recent youth unemployment crisis faced by many countries, this study conducted an empirical analysis on the factors affecting regional youth employment in South Korea. Using variables suggested by both foreign and domestic studies, a hierarchical regression analysis showed that indicators such as the budget for job creation, the rate of increase in the number of businesses, and the road pavement rate do not have a significant effect on youth employment. Conversely, economic and social indicators such as the natural population growth rate, increases in the number of workers, the number of businesses with more than five employees, per-capita labor cost in the wholesale and retail trade industry, residential life satisfaction, and the share of business funding from the issuance of debt have a significant effect. Accordingly, to increase youth employment, policymakers should strive to increase immigration as well as the share of business investment funds in debt utilization rather than investing in road pavement or job creation.

558 Cultural Distance of Nations and Localization Strategy of MNEs in China   , Jaewook Yoo  
This study explores the relationship between cultural distance of nations and the localization of MNEs in China. The empirical setting for this study was drawn from a multiyear sample of MNEs in the Chinese market. The data for the degree of localization of MNEs was drawn from an annual index provided by the China Entrepreneur magazine from 2010 to 2012. Hofstede’s six cultural dimensions were employed to measure the cultural distance between the home and the host countries. The research question presented in this study was tested using a multiple regression model that used the localization of the MNEs as the dependent variable. The results indicate that the difference in the power distance between the home country and the host country has a positive relationship with the localization of the MNEs in the Chinese market. On the other hand, the other five dimensions of national culture do not present any significant relationships with the localization of the MNEs. The results are in agreement with arguments made in previous studies by indicating that the effects of national culture on the localization of MNEs are not the same under all circumstances but rather vary according to the different countries and to different chronological changes. Therefore, the MNEs should consider the cultural distance between the home country and the host country whenever deciding their strategy for internationalization, particularly in terms of the degree of localization for each target country
559 The Role of Archeology on Earth Buildings and Earth Architecture in the World , Hamed Niroumand, Juan Antonio Barcelo and Maryam Saaly  
Many archeologists have carried out many excavations to investigate many archeological sites in various parts of the world. The current paper is aimed at investigating the role of archeology on earth buildings and earth architecture in the world. The current study provides a review of many archaeological studies in collaboration with analyses of the construction techniques applied in various archaeological sites. In fact, in order to draw a conclusion regarding to the role of archeology on earth architecture, diverse investigations which have studied into archeological and structural aspects of vernacular buildings have been presented. Many of these researches put emphasis on archeological aspects of various sites, but none concentrated on the role of archeological sites on earth buildings. According to different investigations, results signify that utilization of the past construction methods applied in construction of ancient vernacular buildings can be developed, and utilized in modern structures. Also, archeologists deemed that further devastating effects such as humid and rain should be considered in order to hamper the deconstruction of vernacular buildings. Prospects for further developments of earth architecture are so bright if engineers augment the quality of earthen materials, and earth construction techniques using the methods which are founded on ancient methods.

569 Plan for Vitalisation of Application of Big Data for e-Learning in South Korea   , Kyoo-Sung Noh  
Recently, as big data have emerged, analysis-based decision-making, problem-solving and business opportunity creation come to the fore as important issues in business. As the effects of using big data have been proven, the range of the application is rapidly expanding to the industrial, public and social sectors. Keeping pace with this trend, the educational world is facing a new turning point: e.g. Building up a big data-based education environment is attempted. However, in South Korea, there are few studies related to big data-based education and almost no applications to the field of education, yet. As a result of the study, it was analysed that the e-Learning industry recognises the importance of big data, and yet, it has not yet considered the introduction due to a lack of human resources, the absence of technologies and a lack of successful cases. Thus, it is necessary for the government to actively develop policies such as fostering big data specialists in the field of e-Learning, supporting related technological developments and constructing technological infrastructure for the application of big data
570 A Comprehensive Analysis of Optimal Performance Parameters of Stand-Alone Generator , Sunil Kumar Goyal and D. K. Palwalia   
Background/Objectives: This paper aims to evaluate performance characteristics of standalone Self-Excited Induction Generator (SEIG) under varying load condition. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Prime mover speed, excitation capacitance and load significantly influence the performance of SEIG. Due to nonlinear magnetization, estimation of nonlinear magnetic characteristics involves clumsy mathematical computation. It gives an opportunity to model nonlinear magnetization characteristics suitable to obtain minimum impedance and optimal capacitance for improved performance. Findings: The effect of regression on nonlinear magnetization curve has been discussed while estimation of magnetization reactance by employing regression functions. It provides optimal value of magnetization reactance to compute performance variables of SEIG. Solution techniques are applied to calculate frequency and excitation capacitance and compared their results. Regression functions with solution techniques have been applied on comprehensive data of induction machines to exhibit validity and accuracy of proposed scheme. Applications/Improvements: The proposed techniques reveal lower capacitance requirement as compared to existing piece- wise linearization model.
571 Defense IT Convergence in South Korea   , Kim Songi , Sim Seungbae, Jung Hosang and Jeong Bongju  
In recent decades, the role of Information Technology (IT) has grown across the globe in the area of national defense, yet the value of emerging technologies may sometimes be over- or underestimated. IT technologies are grafted onto national defense systems in order to improve the accuracy of weapon system or support decision making process, which is defined as defense IT convergence. This study analyses the status of defense IT applications and identifies the tendency toward defense IT convergence in emerging technologies. To do this, we investigated 89 systems in South Korea and other countries, classifying systems by military domain category, and identifying their underlying technologies. These underlying technologies were placed on Gartner’s hype cycle, indicating the position of the identified defense IT applications on this long-term cycle. Most countries, including South Korea, have a high level of practical use in most proven-technology: complex-event processing, machine-to-machine communication services, and predictive analytics. Interestingly, the results show that South Korea has a risk-avoiding tendency in defense IT policy, which means that the country has fewer technologies in the trigger level of the hype cycle compared to the international average. Also we found that the average number of technologies used in defense IT systems in South Korea is smaller than the international average, which means that South Korea is comparatively weak in integrating multiple technologies into systems.
572 Communication in Creative Process of Art Communities , Alexander M. Pivovarov and Olga A. Nikiforova   
Purpose: This research is aimed at an enquiry into whether it is possible in an analysis of an artistic creative process to use a model, major components (sub-processes) of which include a problem statement, emotional arousal, generating, objectification and evaluating. Methods/Analysis: The research methodological framework includes a communicative approach. It involves comprehension of creative sub-processes using a communication analysis that takes place in a team, members of which are engaged in solving an intellectually demanding task. The evidence-based framework for the paper included the data gathered with a method of a semi-structured interview in time of field research. Their object included four art communities that in an urban environment (e.g. Moscow, Saint Petersburg) had brought together more than thirty artists, working in various genres of the contemporary art. Results: The findings presented in the paper describe the sub-processes of objectification and emotional arousal in an individual and team creative work of artists, as well as understanding a role performed by communication in each process performance. Novelty/Improvements: Firstly, the research novelty lies in the model of the creative process used for the artwork analysis; the model was elaborated in the field of invention. Second, it lies in a description of the relationship between communication and creativity in the artwork of the artists clustered into art communities. Third, it lies in the identified “material” form of objectification in the artistic creative process.
573 Sequential Layered Approach for Optimized Context Integration   , Yoosoo Oh  
In this paper, we propose a sequential layered approach for optimized context integration. The proposed approach applies multiple fusion layers according to divided time intervals to accurately integrate contexts. Particularly, it is necessary to develop a generalized architecture for context integration that enables a decision to be made based on contextual data from large numbers of heterogeneous sensors. Thus, our approach is managed at an architectural level for dynamic changes in heterogeneous sensor environments. Also our approach is specified by the characteristics of contexts to decide high-level semantic information from different contextinputs. Furthermore, our approach can serve as a fundamental study of context awareness in large-scale applications and the convergence among heterogeneous domains.

The performance of the axial and eccentrically loaded wallette was found to be superior compared to the conventional cement block masonry. They satisfy the requirements of IS 2185:2008 (part 4). Application/Improvements: These geopolymer masonry units were used as structural masonry units due to the good compressive strength and performance.
575 Repair Mortar for Structural Sustainability , H. Deepak, Shan Joy and V. Vasugi  
Objectives: Study on the engineering properties of fiber reinforced polymer cement mortar with incremental replacement of cement by silica fume, Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) and Metakaoline (MK). Methods/Statistical Analysis: Cement is replaced by the additives as 5, 10 and 15 percent by weight. Polymer content (SBR) was varied as 5, 10, 15 and 20 percent by weight of water to be added. The FRP fiber addition is optimized to one percent by weight of cement in all the specimens. The intention was to study the variation in engineering properties of fiber reinforced polymer with additive replacement of binder with the additives and water with polymer. Findings: It is concluded from the test results that the compressive and flexural strength of modified mortar were improved markedly with increasing polymer binder ratio and also additive replacement of binder weight by silica fume, GGBS and Metakaoline. The results obtained has given much higher values when compared to individual addition of additives or polymer. The consistency in values of both compressive and flexural strength marks the much higher efficiency of the mortar even in lower percentage of addition of additive or polymer when added individually. Supplementary Cementing Materials (SCM) have growing importance in the construction industry, as it upgrades the economic and engineering efficiency of cement compositions. The replacement of water with polymer reduces the water binder ratio, driving to high strength and durable repair mortars. The polyester fibers addition resulted in the improvement of the mechanical properties of the composition. Applications/Improvements: Thus the fiber reinforced mortar combination is a mark in structural sustainability of not only modern but also for structural rehabilitation of historic monuments, where it can replace the ancient lime mortars with high strength and durability hand in hand.
576 Smart Daily Log Developed for Institutions for the Disabled   , Kang Jung Bae , Kim Chang Geol  , Park Hee Joon and Song Byeong Seop  
Child care institutions in Korea are required to do paper works for administrative purposes as the institutions have to draw, execute and evaluate plans to provide child caring services. Such documents include a service plan, a daily log and an evaluation sheet. Most institutions spend lots of time to write out the papers manually. This study is to help the institutions prepare the documents digitally, and analyze them to automatically recommend customized service for each individual child. The daily log service developed as a result of this study allows its users to keep the records online, and analyzes the daily log to come up with measures to improve daily log system. The daily log service has been used since 2009 in institutions for the disabled. A daily behavioral log as a result of analyzing daily log is written mostly at 8:00; while a daily child caring log is written mostly between 16:00 to 17:00. It takes 24 minutes and 32 seconds to prepare a daily child caring log; and 15 minutes and 3 seconds, for a daily behavioral log. Given that working hours are eight hours per day, 6% out of the working hours is spent on preparing the behavioral daily log. The share of time spent on paper works drops significantly

578 The Effects of Emotion and Communication on Job Involvement   , Do Hyun Kim, Yen Yoo You and Jin Teak Jung  
Although certain topics such as scientific management, human-centered research, communication, and job involvement have been actively studied for the purpose of enhancing organizational performance, there have been relatively few academic studies of emotion, despite its importance to this subject. Accordingly, the purpose of the present study was to verify the effects of emotions on job involvement. Results of the study showed that communication and consideration influence job involvement, while emotions play a partially mediating role on communication and job involvement. Researchers argue that communication should be improved in order to achieve better organizational performance, and that performance is related to verbal communication. All people have emotions, and they may express them through words. In addition, emotions and words can significantly influence individuals, and, as a result, they may influence individual and organizational success. Thus, the communication of positive emotions is an important element of successful organizational development, and organizations should create environments that foster such communications.

The probe is moved horizontally and vertically based on the command passed by stepper motor which in-turn get the information from the prototype in format of Gerber file. First the flying probe checks the connectivity between two points then if the connectivity is good it will check the next track. Findings: This novel invention of flying probes are developed from new-fangled and novel thought intended to produce fasten testing speed, improved access, and enhanced error coverage. During the testing process if the machine determines some problem in the connectivity, it read the problem and send the error report on the PC display. From the error report, we can identify the fault placed in the PCB. A log file with test results is generated & stored on the PC. Fault details are sent to display unit of PC. The PC displays the matching accuracy and fault detection. The experimental result was conducted on 3 different PCB Bare board and the testing result shows the 92% accuracy and 18% false detection rate. It is compared with the jig board tester which produces less result compared to the proposed technique. The chief confront of this proposal is low down equipment and dispensation cost, absolute testing accurateness and capability to position close to faults and faults that may source irregular breakdowns. Applications/Improvements: This machine can be used for testing any type of PCB board. This proposed work develops a smart flying probe to test PCB which will significantly decrease test times therefore increasing productivity
580 Role of Relationship Marketing in Raising the Loyalty of Teachers of Private English Institutes in Korea   , Jaewook Yoo and Keun Huh  
The purpose of this paper is to report on the components of relationship marketing that have been perceived by teachers as being related to the capacity for innovation of their private English institutes. The teachers’ perception of the innovative capacity of their institutes is very important because it is an eventful precondition that increases the loyalty that teachers have towards their institute. The results from a multiple regression analysis showed that five components of relationship marketing, including trust, bonding, communication, shared values, and reciprocity, are closely related to a teacher’s perception for the capacity for innovation of their institutes. However, one other component, empathy is not. The findings indicate that particular components are more important than others to improve teachers’ perceptions for the capacity for innovation of their institutes, which in turn improves their loyalty to the institutes. Therefore, English institutes should selectively increase their investments on specific components of relationship marketing in order to increase the loyalty of internal stakeholders, as well as of external stakeholders.

591 The Effects of Supervisor Support, Emotional Exhaustion, and Sense of Personal Accomplishment on Hospital Nurse Turnover Intentions   ,  Eunja Yeun and Heejeong Kim  
The management of nursing staffs, who account for the largest number of medical professionals, is very important. However, now a days every medical institution is suffering from significantly higher turnover of nurses and is having trouble retaining nursing staffs. This study is an attempt to investigate the effects of supervisor support, sense of personal accomplishment, and emotional exhaustion on the turnover intentions of nurses. To determine the influences of supervisor support, sense of personal accomplishment, and emotional exhaustion on turnover intentions, a regression model was used in Hierarchical Step 1 to analyze the sociology of population characteristics which showed statistically significant differences: age, years worked, working unit, and position. In Hierarchical Step 2, supervisor support, sense of personal accomplishment, and emotional exhaustion were added, and the explanatory power increased by a statistically significant 19.4%. Among these factors, emotional exhaustion was shown to exert a significant influence on turnover intention, and as emotional exhaustion increased (B = .515), it was shown to have the greatest influence on turnover intention. The total explanatory power of these factors on turnover intention was shown to be 32.3%. Emotional exhaustion turned out to be the factor with the most influence on turnover intention in this research. Nursing managers wishing to reduce turnover intention should focus their analyses on the issue of emotional exhaustion and look for ways to decrease emotional exhaustion among the nurses they supervise..

594 Multilevel Statcom Based on PID and Fuzzy Control , M. V. Deepthi and K. P. Prasad Rao  
To investigate the performance of Multilevel STATCOM based on PID with fuzzy controller under fault conditions. Static Synchronous Compensator is used to inject voltages by regulating DC link voltages in the system which consists of two standard inverters associated in cascaded to obtain five level output. Generally DC link voltages are controlled by PI controller. When there is a fault occurrence in the system, then time response of PI controller will be slow and overshoot problems raised. To rectify this problem, PID with fuzzy controller is proposed. By using PID with fuzzy controller, DC link voltages are synchronized; a dq reference frame theory is used in this system for STATCOM to recompense the harmonics. The proposed controller gives less Total Harmonic Distortion, Response Time, Settling Time and Rise Time.
595 The Effect of Eight-Shuffling AES Implementations Techniques against Side Channel Analysis   , Sang-Su Baek , Yoo-Seung Won , Dong-Guk Han and Jae-Cheol Ryou  
Even though cryptographic algorithms embedded on physical devices guarantee theoretical security, they are vulnerable to side channel attacks that analyze correlations related to physical information such as power consumption and electromagnetic waves. Physical devices without any countermeasures are vulnerable to side channel analysis. The masking and shuffling techniques the most used countermeasures against side channel analysis. Masking techniques rely on the masking order, however, these techniques have a high computational cost. Shuffling techniques, on the other hand, are able to provide security without high computational cost. Recently, instead of using one countermeasure alone, a combination of them has been employed while still affording provable security at a relatively computational cost. Computational security is related to the complexity of shuffling when a shuffling technique has been employed. In this paper, we apply shuffling techniques of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) in a new way. Our technique involves to eight different implementations of AES. If our technique is proven safety, then we will combine masking techniques and our technique. So, we examine the theoretical versus experimentally analyzed number of power traces for the recovery key. Theoretically, our results show 64 times more shuffling complexity than a non-shuffling AES implementation. Experimentally, however, it has seven times greater shuffling complexity.

Background/Objectives: Fishing communities are socially, economically and educationally disadvantaged. Their settlements are characterized by overcrowding with extremely poor sanitation. Information about the socio – demographic profile of these communities is essential to address the felt needs of this community. The aim of this study is to explore the socio – demographic profile of the fishermen community residing at Ennore Creek in East Coast of India. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: A cross sectional study was done among the fishing community in Ennore Creek of North Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. The cluster sampling method was adopted and 30 clusters were randomly selected by the probability Proportionate to Size (PPS) method. The structured questionnaire was used to collect information regarding the socio – demographic details about the selected study participants and other family members. The study population included individuals who are living in the nine fishing wards of Ennore Creek for the minimum of six months period. Data entry and analysis was done using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 15. Descriptive statistics were calculated for the variables. Findings: In the 780 families with 3542 individuals it was found that about 60.6% lived in semi pucca houses, 100% of the households had electricity, 88.3% of the households had improved drinking water supply, 64.4% of the households had improved sanitation facility, 35.6% of the households practiced open air defeaction, 64.2% of the households had clean fuel for cooking and 12.2% of the households had health insurance. Population below the age of 15 years was 1110 (31.3%), adult population (15–49 years) was 1919 (54.2%) and 254 (7.2%) were above 60 years of age. Number of males to females was 1815 (51.2%): 1727 (48.8%) were females Male literacy was found to be 52.1% while the female literacy was found to be 47.9%. With regard to occupation, 30.5% were fishermen, 27.9% were fish vendors and 22% were involved in non fishing jobs. A sizeable segment (80.1%) of the adults aged between 15–49 years was married. Men (15–49 years) who got married before the age of 21 years were 27.8% and women (15–49 years) who got married before the age of 18 years were 36.4%. It was found that 54.1% of the participants hailed from nuclear families, 60.1% of them had the family size more than four and 65.1% of them belonged to the category of low standard of living. In this community it was found that the current users of any form of tobacco (smoked/chewed/snuffed) were 58.5% while the current consumers of alcohol consumption were found to be 65%. Application/Improvements: The settlements and environment of fishermen community is bereft of basic infrastructure, water supply, sanitation, public services and access to healthcare. Low literacy rates, practice of early marriages, declining income from fishing activity and hence inclination to seek non-fishing jobs, prevailing lower socio – economic status, rampant and indiscriminate use of tobacco and alcohol are the salient features that prevail among the fishermen community of Ennore Creek. Health education and health promotional activities to increase the awareness on the hazards of tobacco use, alcohol consumption, importance of environmental hygiene, hazards of open air defecation, importance and benefits of education especially female literacy should be provided to bring about a change in this community.

604 Optimal Pillow Conditions for High-Quality Sleep: A Theoretical Review   , Jong Eun Yim  
It is widely believed that using a pillow that allows appropriate neck support to maintain cervical lordosis during sleep can lead to better quality sleep.Conversely, use of the wrong type of pillow can compromise pain-sensitive structures and produce waking symptoms, such as cervical pain and stiffness, headaches, and arm pain; and this in turn results in reduced sleep quality. Therefore, the optimal pillow should have neutral cervical lordosis, prevent waking cervical symptoms, and increase sleep quality by optimizing the sleeping position. A factor critical to a suitable pillow is proper support for cervical lordosis. The main role of a pillow during sleep is to support the cervical spine in a neutral position, which prevents loss of cervical spine curvature and waking cervical symptoms by minimizing end-range positioning of the spinal segments. Another critical characteristic of a suitable pillow is reduction of the temperature of the head and core during nighttime sleep. Because, sympathetic nervous system innervation was less excited with a cool pillow, which is important for deep sleep. In addition to neck support and temperature control, the pillow comfort is another critical characteristic of a suitable pillow. However, no association between pillow comfort and waking symptoms has been reported, suggesting that the participants’ perceptions of pillow comfort and their reports of waking symptoms are independent of one another. In conclusion, a neck pillow with a firm support and low temperature may reduce neck pain and improve sleep quality. Therefore, a cool and not too hard pillow with enough support for cervical lordosis is considered optimal and is recommended for high quality sleep and cervical pain relief.

606 RFID Adaptor for Detecting and Handling Data/ Events in Internet of Things   , Ina Kim, Moon-Ki Back, Hyung-Jun Yim and Kyu-Chul Lee  
The Internet of Things (IoT) remains that things will be able to detect information from the environment, and communicate with the physical world. We previously proposed middleware to integrate and interoperate information based on the DDS standard. The proposed middleware consists of REST, Zigbee, and RFID adaptors. It allows the adaptors to share information by data/events/services topic matching. In this paper, we propose an RFID adaptor for RFID tags’ data/events in the IoT as a part of the middleware. The adaptor publishes data/events topic among data/events/services considering the characteristics of RFID technology. Employing the publish-subscribe model of the DDS, the RFID adaptor can detect data from RFID tags and publish the data/events to the DDS. Other adaptors in the middleware can then subscribe the data/events. As a simulation of the RFID adaptor, we can identify the interoperation of RFID and DDS. Through applying the RFID adaptor in IoT environment, it can interoperate data/events of other applications in IoT.

611 Development of Finite Element Model Technology for Composite Pipe with Sewage Pipe Renewal Method   , San Juan Jerome C , Park Jong Sup and Lee Kwan Ho  
The aim of this study is to evaluate the behaviour of buried pipes utilizing the Sewage Pipe Renewal (SPR) method through a finite element analysis. A finite element program, ABAQUS, will be used for the static analysis of the pipes. Maximum stresses and displacements are tabulated and plotted into graphs for the analysis. Varying lengths, materials, bedding angles, boundary conditions are considered. Lengths of 1m, 3m, 5m, and 10m meters are used, but only the 3 and 5 meter pipes are used for the modelling of pipes with various bedding angles and boundary conditions. Two sets of boundary conditions are used in this study to represent the bedding support on the pipe. A fixed boundary condition and a series of soil springs are used to model the bedding support of the pipes. Based on the FEM results, length of the pipes is not a factor for the magnitude of maximum stresses and deflections of buried pipes. However, increasing bedding angles of the buried pipes decreases the value of stresses and displacements. Additionally, pipes with soil springs applied as bedding support increases the stress and displacement remarkably. Analyses and concluding remarks are provided at the end of this study
612 Study on the Head Mounted Display (HMD)-Based VR Contents and Producing Method   , Jung-Yeob Han  
Background/Objectives: Year 2016 has been presented as the starting year of Virtual Reality (VR). However, there has been little study on VR content production techniques. Methods /Statistical analysis: The purpose of this study was to examine various VR content production techniques and present the direction for development of VR contents. For methodology, the study classified production techniques for 15 contents in 3 areas, i.e., 5 contents of 360° life-size shooting, 5 contents based on 3D low polygon, and 5 contents of 360° animation which were differentiated in terms of production techniques and contents among 109 VR contents registered on March 3, 2016 which were on VR platforms provided by Oculus Rift. Furthermore, the study presented production methods applying concerned techniques and their characteristics. Findings: The results of this study showed that VR contents could be defined as real-size image, 2 and 3D low-polygon VR contents, and 360° animation, depending on production characteristics. First, 360° life-size shooting technique was suitable for special locations and situations such as performance, movies, etc., but did not enable presentation such as lighting, etc. Furthermore, 360° life-size is shooting required special technology and much time for the latter part works such as stitching, special effects, etc., in connection with production technique. Second, 3D low polygon-based VR contents enabled simulation with excellent sense of presence and immersion based on 0.02 second latency by reducing the number of 3D polygons from 30,000 to 50,000. However, it had the disadvantage of degraded reality of images. Third, 360° animation production technique enabled various presentations and enhanced image quality, but had limitation that it enabled only fragmentary interaction and simulation. Improvements/Applications: Future VR content would need to be developed in such a way that efficiency and synergic effects can be maximized by combining the advantages of various production techniques, depending on the purpose and needs of VR contents, rather than applying single production technique.

616 The Internal Logic of Leadership   ,  Malini Pande  
What drives real leadership? Our research is based on a story-completion tool called “Understanding My Leadership Logic”. A sample of 500 leaders in senior leadership positions in corporate, were asked to undertake this story completion survey. The research question was: “What are the Internal Action Logics of leaders in corporate?” An effort has been made to understand how leaders interpret their own actions and what action logics are followed by them. This research showed six internal leadership logics or leader’s dominant way of thinking. We found that the three types of leaders associated with below average corporate performance (The Controller, The Pacifier, and The Specialist) accounted for 57% of our sample. They were less effective at implementing organizational strategies than the 32% of the sample measured as Team Builders. Independent Thinkers form the next class with 8% of the sample following this action logic. Finally only the final 3% of managers in the sample are Strategic Thinkers who are transformational leaders with the consistent capacity to innovate and to successfully transform their organizations.

Background/Objectives: Sleep staging is very important phase for diagnosing respiration and sleep diseases. Nowadays, Electroencephalogram (EEG), Electromyogram (EMG), Electrooculogram (EOG) signals are particularly used together in studies on sleep staging. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Associating only EOG signals to sleep staging was distinctly purposed. So, this paper deals with extraction features and classifying for determining REM-NREM states from the EOG signals. In this study, left eye (LEOG) and the right eye (REOG) signals were used. After EOG signals were obtained, 21 different features were extracted from LEOG and REOG in time and frequency domain according to rules of American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). Findings: Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) was adopted on features as method of classification with 3-fold cross validation technique and reached conclusion with the maximum test classification accuracy as 88.05%. To obtain higher classification accuracies, Sequential Backward Selection (SBS) method was used. According to results of SBS, number of the best features combination was determined as 13 and the maximum classification accuracy was obtained as 89.62%. The optimum value of hidden layer node number of ANN was determined as 15 for the best features. Application/Improvements: When looking from the viewpoint of percentage of classification accuracy of this study, a result can be seen that is non-negligible value for literature.
618 Effect of EEG Time Domain Features on the Classification of Sleep Stages , Sule Yucelbas , Seral Ozsen , Cuneyt Yucelbas , Gulay Tezel, Serkan Kuccukturk and Sebnem Yosunkaya  
Background/Objectives: Studies on the field of automatic sleep stage classification have been taking more attention of researchers day by day. Noise in the recordings, nonlinear dynamic feature of EEG signals and some other reasons affect the performance of proposed systems in negative manner. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Sleep can be divided five main stages as Wake, Non-REM1, Non-REM2, Non-REM3 and REM. Almost every proposed method can successfully classify some evident stages like Non-REM2 and REM. But when it comes to the transitions between stages, the systems are not very good in their performances. Thus a different classification strategy was proposed in this study. Five different classifiers were designed especially for transitions between stages using time domain features of EEG, EOG and EMG signals and evaluated these features for each classifier. Sequential backward feature selection process was applied in each classifier to find out which features are dominant in each classification procedure. Artificial Neural Networks was used in designed classifiers. Findings: The highest classification accuracy was obtained as 91.03% for Classifier-3 which predicts stages coming after Non-REM II. The lowest accuracy was recorded as 75.42% for Classifier-2 in which stages are determined after the Non-REM I epochs. Comparatively good results were reached especially if it is taken into account that only used time-domain features of signals. Application/Improvements: The obtain results show that the designed classifiers can be used in automatic sleep staging system, confidently.
619 Impact of Structured Induction on Mutually Beneficial Deployment and Talent Retention   , Lt. Col Milind Gogate and Suruchi Pandey  
For any company the employee engagement begins from the day an employee joins the company. Thus a structured Induction Process plays a crucial role in ensuring that the employees are embedded in their respective appointments and assignments properly. It is also known as On-boarding Process or Orientation Process etc. Whichever term one may use, this process is very crucial for both the stakeholders. Therefore a structured Induction Process may be rather termed as “Integration Programme”. The quality of this Integration Programme may certainly have a direct bearing on the new employee’s decision to continue with the employment or leave, if the situation permits. The duration of this Integration Programme may vary between three months to six months, depending on the nature of industry and quality of talent. The Integration Programme must adopt a practical approach to understand the performance and aspirations of the new employees. Adequate measures may be initiated to fulfil these aspirations partially/fully. An effective and interactive feedback mechanism must be instituted to provide timely guidance and correction to the new employees. If the above mentioned and other such practices are in place in an organisation, the employees would certainly develop a sense of belonging making their bond with the organisation stronger. This paper presents a study of Induction programme of heavy manufacturing industry unit. The study aims at finding out impact of structured Induction on mutually beneficially deployment and Talent Management. This study presents feedback of employees on the way induction is done in the unit of study and suggests improvement in the Induction process

Methods/Statistical Analysis: A database from these signals of five subjects which were recorded at sleep laboratory of Necmettin Erbakan University in Turkey was ready for use. The database consisted of 600 EEG epochs in total. The number of epochs was 300 for both with and without SSs in this database. Comparison of the performances of these methods on SS determination process was performed by using Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) classifier. Findings: According to the test classification results, notable difference was obtained between the applied PSD methods. By using the extracted all features, maximum test classification accuracies were achieved as 84.83%, 80.67%, 80.83% and 80.33% with use of FFT, Welch, AR and MUSIC, respectively. To determine the SSs, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) also was utilized in this study. When PCA was applied, the results were 89.50%, 82.00%, 93.00% and 94.83% by use of the same PSD methods, respectively. Application/Improvements: As a result, the performance of PCA and MUSIC is better than the others. Hence, these methods can be used safely for automatic detection of SSs.
621 Leadership Communication Strategies for Establishing Social Harmony and Sustainable Development – Mr. Narendra Modi as a Case Study   , Pradnya Chitrao  
Leadership has been defined in different ways by different persons. Effective leadership today is seen as essential for running successfully a business as also ensuring the progress of a nation. The 21st C is witnessing a sea change in businesses and societies on account of rapid progress in information and technology. Business leaders need to restructure businesses to suit the changed scenario and tight budgets, learn to adapt to different cultures and work practices, and use technology constructively to ensure sustainable businesses. They have to communicate strategically the vision and motivate employees. National leaders or heads of nations have to do away with the 20th C practice of speaking from their political party’s point of view, and speak from the nation’s point of view. They must think in terms of how to solve their nation’s problems and how to change, if necessary, the nation’s mind set for implementation of the solutions. They must communicate persuasively and unite the nation as one team for achieving objectives and dreams. The paper reflects on Mr Narendra Modi’s communication strategies as the new leader of India in his capacity as its Prime Minister and their suitability for leading India towards sustainable development.

631 An Empirical Study on the Factors Contributing to Work Family Conflict among Young Employees in the IT Companies   , Shaji Joseph, Bhavna Gautam and S. Vijayakumar Bharathi  
This paper empirically tests the factors generally understood as contributing to the work family conflict of employees in the IT companies through a comparative study of men and women. Since majority of the IT workforce in India are young it is important to understand whether earlier parameters for work life balance are relevant in the present context. The analysis revealed that the work family conflict has a definitive impact in both men and women in the IT companies. However it was found that women suffer more from work family conflict as they have the dual responsibility though the difference is not significant. To analyze the data collected from the IT employees in India we used linear regression model using Excel and SPSS. The analysis revealed that the gender difference do not impact greatly on the work family conflict. This point out to the fact that we need to rethink on the way we understand the concept of work family conflict among the young IT employees. Contribution to Body of Knowledge The outcome of this study emphasizes the need for managing work family conflict in the information technology companies. The factors that contribute to work family conflict from gender perspective are clearly brought out methodically.

633 Managing Multiple Career Transitions Sustained Over a Long Period   , Pramod Damle  
On the backdrop of the spiraling scale of career transition during past few decades this paper presents an outcome of the phenomenological study of multiple career transitions handled successfully by six individuals over a sustained period of more than a decade. These persons were interviewed across several sessions and from the transcription of interviews, a set of forty-two relevant statements are extracted. These statements in turn were perused to yield seven emergent themes of self-awareness, determination, investment of time, sensing the opportunity, planning, preparation and reaping the rewards. Some textural descriptions from the narratives are provided to understand “what” these interviewees experienced, while the structural descriptions are derived providing a context of “how” they kept on managing the consecutive career transitions over a long period. In the end, these textural and structural descriptions are converged offering a composite description that illuminates the phenomenon of sustained career transitions. Contribution to Body of Knowledge By tracing multiple career transitions using phenomenological approach, the paper throws light on how such transitions are managed over a long period. It provides an insight to both qualitative researchers and practitioners to help them in informed decisions/actions.

635 Study on Effect of Emotional Intelligence on Conflict Resolution Style   , Suruchi Pandey, Spoorthi Sajjanapu and Garima Sangwan  
Objective: To study the role of Emotional Intelligence (EI) of people and corresponding conflict resolution style and to understand if age, gender, occupation etc. have a bearing on these attributes. Methods/Analysis: Both primary and secondary data was collected. Primary data was collected through questionnaire which consisted of 46 items. Questionnaire source are well-established tools. Questionnaire was shared through the online mode only. Respondents, who are employed professional, were picked by random convenience sampling. Sample consisted of 110 respondents. For analysis data of 99 respondents was used because respondents who showed multiple conflict resolution styles were not considered. Analysis tools - SPSS and Excel. Findings: Avoiding style of conflict resolution was observed to be widely adopted by respondents with high emotional intelligence score. Accommodating and avoiding styles were adopted by people with lesser amount of industry experience and people having more than 10 years of experience used competing as a conflict resolution style. The research shows that women have higher emotional intelligence and thus are able to use varied conflict resolution styles. On the other hand men seemed to adopt avoiding as their conflict resolution style. EI of women being higher than men is in consensus with other studies conducted in this area. Emotional intelligence score increases with age but it was observed that after 35 years of age the emotional intelligence score reduces. Few studies conducted in this area state that EI increases with age. Conclusion/Application: Better understanding of EI of teams and how they resolve conflicts can enable effective and refined recruitment/selection, team formations etc. and further lead to individual wellbeing at workplace and higher team performance.
636 The Peer Relationship and Academic of Soccer Players , Wang-Sung Myung  and Chun-HoYang  
Background/Objectives: This research aims to examine the correlation between peer relationships and academic attitude of the soccer players. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The research hypotheses regarding the direction to take to achieve the right academic attitude through peer relationships with average students other than soccer players are as follows: First, there will be a correlation between peer relationships and the academic attitude of the soccer players. Second, the peer relationships of the soccer players will affect their academic attitude. The target of the research was 181 middle school male soccer players in the Honam area. For data processing we used exploratory factor analysis, a reliability test, correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis and the results are as follows. Findings: First, for the relationship between peer relationships and academic attitudes, interest in class had positive correlations with position among peers, degree of interest and socialization with peers. Class concentration and learning in class had positive correlations with position among peers, degree of interest and emotion with peers. Also, class accomplishments had positive correlations with position among peers and degree of interest. Second, in the peer relationship, position among peers and degree of interest had a positive effect on the interest in class, class concentration and class accomplishments. But for learning in class, only degree of interest had a positive effect. Novelty/Improvement: We can conclude that for the middle school soccer players, peer relationships with average students have a positive effect on their academic attitudes. Therefore, to make soccer players have the right academic attitude, we need to encourage them to have good peer relationships with average students. Also, for the further improvement of the research, instead of limiting the target to middle school students the sampling should be expanded to high school and college.

639 Pulling the Strings   ,  Mansi Kapoor  
We are all in the labyrinth of our own making, crying for help, to be rescued, to be set free. The distressed SOS calls can’t be heard any longer because they are now becoming deafening……………. Three Vices have taken a tenacious grip over most of us- Greed, Selfishness and Instant gratification. Greed fuels corruption, selfishness gives rise to stress and wanting instant gratification causes us to ignore the long term consequences of our actions. The angst has no voice or expression and hence has seeped into our lives to make it banal, purposeless and ironically anxious. Leaders, sometimes unwittingly, in order to give some sense of direction and purpose, resort to such interventions which further perpetuate the trivialization of the human spirit and ultimately wrecks havoc in the work place. Every morning brings a new battle and every night, a fervent prayer. Those, who have reached the centre of this gigantic labyrinth, have become like the mythical Minotaur. Not realizing, that it is actually he, who is in captivity due to his own half beastly nature. “The Crisis in business is spiritual, all management ideas till now have been external directed paradigms, developing behavior and skills, not character and values. But meaning and richness must flow from the mind to work and not the other way. We need a fundamental shift from the current reductionist, fragmentist, and materialistic paradigm to one which recognizes relationships, consciousness and the spirit as the right approach.” S. K. Chakraborty, Centre for Human Values, IIM Calcutta.
