A Simulation Approach for Traffic Management

Abstract- The traffic congestion problems have been aggravated lately; becoming an annoying daily phenomenon accompanied negative impacts on human health, environment and economy.

Conventional traffic management methodologies failed to accommodate the ever-increasing of mobility needs. Hence, the necessity of modern approaches was raised to handle the problem; technology has the power of solving our road congestions dilemmas, it’s challengeable but worthwhile. This paper presents a notion of traffic management methodology based on a smart control system that varies the street flow by alterable luminous road lanes and signs, according to circumstances in that time to redistribute the road usage priority. Three main scenarios were considered and simulated on Witness Software to find the efficiency of the notion, a noticeable enhancement in the traffic flow was found. Finally, a value and risk assessment performed to find the possibilities and challenges of the projects realistic implementation.

OSN runs at the worst operating environments.

OSN requires more reliable and more stable operating conditions to extend the network lifetime compared to other WSN. In this paper, we propose a

MCM based clustering algorithm for OSN. As properly managing the number of cluster member nodes, our proposed algorithm increases the lifetime of network nodes, enhances the network efficiency, and predicts the network performance and reliability. In addition, NS-2 simulation results show that our algorithm has the better performance compared to LEACH and extends the network


Keywords: OSN, WSN, algorithm, network reliability

Abstract— Cell Signaling Pathway Simulation is a very useful tool in the drug discovery process. These simulation programs can be divided into dynamic simulation and

Knowledge-Based Discovery. In the first case the simulation is based on differential equations and could be considered in "real-time", meanwhile in the case of Knowledge Based

Discovery Programs KBDP the consistency of the model is checked. The most efficient KBDP approach is based on

first order logic (FOL). In this paper, algorithms based on Default Logic are proposed to check-out the consistency of the simplest representation of DNA double strand breaks. DNA double-strand breaks are among the most severe genomic lesions. This representation is concise and adequat for keeping the flow of information represented by gene expression, receptor and protein structure through the apoptosis and cell cycle.

Abstract - Instead of all using TOR schemes, an approach building a cloud server on top of a high-performance fabric is presented in this paper. The advantage is to provide both high performance/cost and performance/Watt compared with the existing method. A FPGA-based system controller integrated with shared networking, shared storage, and interconnect fabric controller is designed and implemented to interconnect a set of lightweight server processors for building a highdensity server. All the processors can share the networking and storage resources through an inter-system interconnect fabric. For the 64-processor prototyping system, the evaluating results show the cloud server not only keeps some traditional cluster advantages such as OS compatibility, but also achieves the better scalability, high performance/cost and high performance/Watt for workloads.

Dynamic protein-protein interaction networks and the detection of protein complexes: an overview

Abstract - Developing computational approaches for the

detection of protein complexes in protein-protein interaction networks continues to be an evolving area of research. These approaches seek to complement the experimental methods which are usually expensive in terms of time and cost. A protein-protein interaction dataset is typically modeled as a static network whose vertices and edges respectively represent all the proteins and their interconnections. Despite the agreeable accuracies attained by various computational methods when applied on such networks, their additional improvements seem to face some limitations. It is believed that the more enrichment with biological information is added to the interaction networks and complex-detection algorithms, the better will be the overall quality of the results. In this paper, we stress on the importance of reflecting the dynamic nature of protein interaction networks as a primary enhancement phase and we highlight possible aspects by which it could be acquired.
