With an immense number of threats pouring in from nation states and hacktivists as well as terrorists and cybercriminals, the requirement of a globally secure infrastructure becomes a major obligation. Most critical infrastructures were primarily designed to work isolated from the normal communication network, but due to the advent of the "Smart Grid" that(More)
In this paper, we study the feasibility of making intelligent antenna selection decision in IEEE 802.15.4 wireless sensor networks. This study provides us the basis to design and implement software defined intelligent antenna switching capability to wireless sensor nodes based on link quality metric, such as Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI). As a(More)
It contains 8 technical papers and 4 position papers, which were selected in a rigorous reviewing process, where each paper was reviewed by at least four program committee members. The International Semantic Web Conference is a major international forum for presenting visionary research on all aspects of the Semantic Web. The International Workshop on(More)
Bracon vulgaris is a larval ectoparasitoid of the boll weevil, Anthonomus grandis, a key cotton pest We investigated the influence of parasitoid age, photoperiod and host availability on B. vulgaris parasitism. Five- and 10-day-old parasitoids were exposed to A. grandis densities of three, six, 12 and 24 larvae per female. Five-day-old females showed higher(More)
The aim of this paper is to define an arbitration merging operator for argumentation frameworks. As it is known, an argumentation framework is a collection of defeasible proofs, called arguments, and a relation attack between these arguments. Many of such arguments can be put forward by different agents and represent their different points of view. The(More)
In this paper, we introduce the tractable pf-EL ++ logic, a paracon-sistent version of the fuzzy logic f-EL ++. Within pf-EL ++ , it is possible to tolerate contradictions under incomplete and vague knowledge. pf-EL ++ extends the f-EL ++ language with a paraconsistent negation in order to represent contradictions. This paraconsistent negation is defined(More)
