Abstract - The Basque Autonomous Community, which is a bilingual community of Basque and Spanish, has adopted

CLIL as a method to teach English as a foreign language with on-line materials as well as written materials. The object of this study is to investigate how the students think about studying subjects in English, in the form of Soft CLIL

(language-driven) in the Basque-medium school. The participants (n = 127) are 1st year secondary students. For them it is the 8th year to study English and 5th month to study subjects in English, in Soft CLIL. The results show that attitudes towards studying subjects in English are positive among overall students, whereas the majority of them want to learn subjects in Basque. The students who want to study subjects in English perceive the effect of Soft CLIL more than the others. The results obtained seem to confirm that Soft

Abstract— Public Administration sector in modern society is characterized by the need to support extremely complex processes in order to provide services to citizen. In this area, transparency is one of the most important requirement to improve the quality of provided public services. In this paper we present a tool supporting PAs collaboration and transparency, named Scrivania. It allows Public Administration employee to model and publish their services and then be guided during the

Business Processes model execution. Instead, citizens, using

Scrivania, can search and execute the provided services, tracing their execution and, in case of delay, observe the state it occurs.

Citizens can also be helped by a semantic search in order to execute specific tasks in a process.

Framework of e-government technical infrastructure.

Case of Estonia

Abstract— As information technology becomes more ubiquitous, governments of all levels must keep up with the increasing demand from the citizens for electronic services of all kinds. The service, policy and governance issues of this struggle are progressively well understood. Its technical aspects, however, are often considered to either be a commodity or covered by research in the field of enterprise architecture. Both experience in international cooperation attempts and efforts in coordinating architecture development on the state level, however, indicate that the existing approaches are not necessarily suitable for inter-enterprise coordination and governance purposes. In this paper we outline requirements for a framework suitable for framing the technical aspects of e-government, describe such a framework and discuss its application in the context of a small nation of Estonia.

Income Inequality and Information Communications

Technologies: Causes, Solutions, and One Example

Darren Gudmundson, MSc

Income-Inequality.com

Abstract - Canada and the United States face growing incountry income inequality. Leading academic research from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the

Organization for Economic Cooperative Development

(OECD), and other independent economists and political scientists have identified the contributing factors to increased in-country income inequality over the past thirty years as: changes to trade policy, changes to finance policy, changes to labour policy, changes to taxation policy, and,

Information Communications Technologies (ICT).

It is the area between the Lorenz curve and the line of equality; the higher the co-efficient, the greater the inequality.

This paper articulates the economic environment in Canada and the United States and details the contributory role of

ICT to the concentration of wealth and how ICT can be used to mitigate income inequality.

Abstract—E-advertising is an increasingly profitable industry that continues to grow rapidly year upon year. Correspondingly, the number of people accessing the internet each year continues to rise. However, users respond negatively towards web based advertising campaigns; a prior study suggests that businesses should consider personalized web based advertisements as key to maximising the effectiveness of advertisements on their target customers. To this end, we are developing a toolset to support both authors and customers of adaptive advertising. Whilst personalisation is desirable, the creation of such systems is nontrivial. Thus, in this paper, we introduce a domain model tool, which is the main tool for authoring adaptive advertisements. It can be used by business owners to organise, label and categorise advertisements. Moreover, this tool has been evaluated by companies in the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia.

Abstract – With rapid development of distributed systems, the characteristics of enterprise information systems are changing along with them. The classical enterprise information system is based on the master-slave model, the two-tier models have emerged based on the client-server systems, and multi-tier models have appeared along with internet-based systems. In this paper, we will present a three-tier enterprise information system.

Introduction

Initially IT systems are used to handle and query transactional data for day to day operations which are called online transactional processing (OLTP) [1] systems. OLTP serves only for transactional execution. To get a high-level summarized data, transactional data needs to be summarized across multiple dimensions and resulting key figures. For example questions like sales across branches, trends across months, regions and to analyze how effective a sales promotion worked to improve sales operations. These kinds of requirements are answered using Online Analytical

Digital Divide or Digital Disinterest?

By Dr. Elliott S. Lynn

American Public University

The digital divide among minorities remains a hot topic within circles in academia and often correlated with lack of resources and opportunity; however, there are many with resources and opportunity that have no desire or intention to become more computer literate than social networking sites require. Is there a divide created within minority communities that have nothing to do with lack or substandard access to resources? In many cases, yes,

I conducted a study on the correlation between computer literacy levels among African

American men and the relationship to pursue Information Technology related careers and the results were startling. My original expectation was to find low computer literacy levels because of an obvious lack of resources and lower income levels, but to my surprise there was a greater correlation between low computer literacy levels and a lack of interest of in information technology, negative views toward information technology professionals, and no sense of urgency of becoming computer literate.

Novel Design Approach to Build Audit Rule Ontology for

Healthcare Decision Support Systems

Numanul Subhani, Robert Kent

School of Computer Science

University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Abstract— Continuous Auditing (CA) has been investigated over time and it is, somewhat, in practice within financial and transactional auditing as a part of continuous assurance and monitoring. Enterprise Information Systems that run their activities in the form of processes require continuous auditing of a process that invokes the action(s) specified in the policies and rules in a continuous manner. A shared vocabulary, or common ontology, defines the processes and the audit rule ontology for processes or modules are integrated to form a hybrid ontology that supports the acquisition and evolution of ontologies. In this paper, we propose a methodology to construct a Healthcare Common Ontology by coupling to an expert system. We also propose a direction to generate an audit rule ontology of a process or module from defined rules for the purpose of Continuous Process

New Windows Rootkit Technologies for Enhancing Digital

Rights Management in Cloud Computing Environments

Woei-Jiunn Tsaur and Jia-Xin Wu

Department of Information Management, Da-Yeh University, Taiwan

Abstract - With the increasing development of cloud computing technologies, digital contents such as music, movies, games, cartoon, and so on get more and more popular for entertainment, and therefore how to control and manage rights of digital contents has been becoming very critical in cloud computing environments. Sony-BMG used a rootkit to conceal the digital rights management (DRM) software, which is aptly installed in consumers’ computers to prevent unauthorized copying. In order to prevent unauthorized users from deleting the DRM software by employing anti-rootkit tools to remove the rootkit, we develop a new Windows driver-hidden rootkit to enhance DRM in cloud computing environments. The proposed Windows driver-hidden rootkit has verified that it can successfully avoid detection of a variety of well-known anti-rootkit tools in cloud computing environments. Our contributions are mainly twofold. Firstly, in cloud computing environments we can use the proposed new rootkit technology to reinforce the

On the Automated Passengers’ Authenticated Bus Transit

Services in South Africa

Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, University of Venda

Thohoyandou, South Africa

Abstract— Today, the impact of information technology has been beneficial and witnessed in every key sector of human endeavour such as healthcare, transportation, education, e-government, entertainment, nations and so on. However, in the perspective of transportation, the existing bus transit system in South Africa (SA) is still characterized by inefficient manual operations such as poor quality of service, non-user friendly and inefficient passenger identification. In this case, due to the economic and developmental role played by the bus transport sector in SA, it is important that some advanced information and communication technology (ICT) tools be incorporated into its operations. This requires a system that automates all the bus transit services and has the capability to authenticate passengers in a real-time mode. Therefore, this paper, proposes an automated bus transit system that offers e-subscription and real-time biometric passengers’ authentication. This will proffer solution to the challenges faced by the bus transit industry in SA.
