Clusters, grids, and peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have emerged as popular paradigms for next generation parallel and distributed computing. They enable aggregation of distributed resources for solving large-scale problems in science, engineering, and commerce. In grid and P2P computing environments, the resources are usually geographically distributed in(More)

Computational Grids and peer-to-peer (P2P) networks enable the sharing, selection, and aggregation of geographically distributed resources for solving large-scale problems in science, engineering, and commerce. The management and composition of resources and services for scheduling applications, however, becomes a complex undertaking. We have proposed a(More)
In this paper, we propose the AVVMC VM consolidation scheme that focuses on balanced resource utilization of servers across different computing resources (CPU, memory, and network I/O) with the goal of minimizing power consumption and resource wastage. Since the VM consolidation problem is strictly NP-hard and computationally infeasible for large data(More)
Contemporary temporal texture classification methods use pixel based features thus making the process slow for time sensitive applications like video indexing and surveillance. In this paper, a real-time classification technique is presented by using readily available block based motion vectors. Experimental results demonstrate the ability of the proposed(More)
Curvature scale-space (CSS) corner detectors look for curvature maxima or inflection points on planar curves. They use arc-length parameterized curvature. Therefore, they are not robust to affine transformations since the arc-length of a curve is not preserved under affine transformations. However, the affine-length of a curve is relatively invariant to(More)
Recent research into pattern representation of moving regions in blocked-based motion estimation and compensation in video sequences, has focused mainly upon using a fixed number of regular shaped patterns. These are used to match the macroblocks in a frame that have two distinct regions involving static background and moving objects. In this paper a new(More)

This article presents a novel mobility-based resource reservation and call admission control scheme that is applicable to any real wireless multimedia network. The scheme exploits three key mobility parameters - the position, direction, and speed of a mobile unit - together with the duration of a particular call to accurately estimate the cell visiting(More)
