Wireless sensor networks consist of a large number of small, low-power sensors that communicate through wireless links. Wireless sensor networks for healthcare have emerged in recent years as a result of the need to collect data about patients’ physical, physiological, and vital signs in the spaces ranging from personal to hospital and availability of the(More)
Task scheduling is essential for the suitable operation of multiprocessor systems. The aim of task scheduling is to determine an assignment of tasks to processors for shortening the length of schedules. The problem of task scheduling on multiprocessor systems is known to be NP-complete in general. Solving this problem using by conventional techniques needs(More)

Pourfak In recent years wireless mesh networks have been deployed and grown in popularity in many metropolitan areas. The deployment of such networks has allowed clients to gain access to(More)
In recent years, grid technology has had such a fast growth that it has been used in many scientific experiments and research centers. A large number of storage elements and computational resources are combined to generate a grid which gives us shared access to extra computing power. In particular, data grid deals with data intensive applications and(More)
In this paper we present a novel congestion control scheme based on fuzzy logic systems for a wireless sensor network (WSN). In sensor networks existence of malicious nodes is undeniable. These nodes aggravate congestion problem by diffusing useless packets. In our approach using in-network fuzzy based processing, each node monitors the behavior of its(More)
The increasing demand on execution of large-scale Cloud workflow applications which need a robust and elastic computing infrastructure usually lead to the use of high-performance Grid computing clusters. As the owners of Cloud applications expect to fulfill the requested Quality of Services (QoS) by the Grid environment, an adaptive scheduling mechanism is(More)
In general, distributed flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) scheduling problems are more complicated than the classical FMS scheduling, because it has to focus on two different issues: first, allocation of jobs to suitable factories and second, determination of the corresponding production scheduling in each factory. On the other hand in distributed FMS(More)
One of the most important challenges in a densely wireless sensor network (WSN) with potential congestions and packet loss is dissemination of distrusted packets. In this paper we present FCCTF: Fairness Congestion Control for a disTrustful WSN using Fuzzy logic. FCCTF increases each node capability for detecting and isolating malicious nodes in order to(More)
Beacon safety message dissemination in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) suffers from poor reliability especially in congested road traffics. The main origin of this problem is CSMA nature of Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) in MAC layer. In this paper, a scheduling algorithm in the application layer is proposed to alleviate the problem. We(More)
Human resources (HRs) as the most important asset of any organizations play a significant role in their success; but, HR virtualization and sharing her/his knowledge and skills was not studied in detail. In this paper, we present a new framework named Expert Cloud to enable the Cloud users for requesting the human expertise and skills without any knowledge(More)
