The MPEG-4 standard [1, 2] offers a standardised framework for a whole range of multimedia applications. Examples include tele-shopping, interactive TV, internet games, or mobile video communication. MPEG-4 integrates different types of multimedia data and services by the introduction of a so-called object-based approach for the description and coding of(More)
Current serotyping methods classify Pasteurella multocida into five capsular serogroups (serogroups A, B, D, E, and F) and 16 somatic serotypes (serotypes 1 to 16). In the present study, we have developed a multiplex PCR assay as a rapid alternative to the conventional capsular serotyping system. The serogroup-specific primers used in this assay were(More)
In this paper, we present demand-side energy management under real-time demand-response pricing as a task scheduling problem which is NP-hard. Using minmax as the objective, we show that the schedule produced by our minMax scheduling algorithm has a number of salient advantages: significant peak-shaving, cost reduction, and risk-aversion for the consumers.(More)
Public cloud storage has recently surged in popularity. However, cloud storage providers (CSPs) today offer fairly rigid services, which cannot be customized to meet individual users' needs. We propose a distributed, client-defined architecture that integrates multiple autonomous CSPs into one unified cloud and allows individual clients to specify their(More)
Recently, several mobile services are changing to cloud-based mobile services with richer communications and higher flexibility. We present a new mobile cloud infrastructure that combines mobile devices and cloud services. This new infrastructure provides virtual mobile instances through cloud computing. To commercialize new services with this(More)
To reduce energy consumption and wastage, effective energy management at home is key and an integral part of the future Smart Grid. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of Green Home Service (GHS) for home energy management. Our approach addresses the key issues of home energy management in Smart Grid: a holistic management solution,(More)
Three dimensional (3D) quantitative structure-activity relationship studies of 37 B-Raf inhibitors, pyrazole-based derivatives, were performed. Based on the co-crystallized compound (PDB ID: 3D4Q), several alignment methods were utilized to derive reliable comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) and comparative molecular similarity indices analysis(More)
Due to the various masquerading strategies adopted by newer P2P applications to avoid detection and filtering, well-known port mapping techniques cannot guarantee their accuracy any more. Alternative approaches, application signature mapping, behavior-based analysis, and machine learning based classification methods, show more promising accuracy. However,(More)
The number of mobile devices and the amount of mobile traffic are increasing rapidly. The users of mobile device use various services such as web surfing, email, video and audio streaming, etc. Analyzing mobile traffic is necessary to provide high quality mobile network services such as QoS management, traffic engineering, etc. In fact, several multi-flow(More)
