1. Task Allocation in Intermittently Connected Mobile Cloud Systems

Author- G. Pranusha , N. Veerapandiyan
Abstract- The rise of portable distributed computing empowers versatile clients to offload applications to close-by versatile asset rich gadgets (i.e., cloudlets) to lessen vitality utilization and enhance execution. Be that as it may, because of versatility and cloudlet limit, the associations between a portable client and versatile cloudlets can be discontinuous. Subsequently, offloading moves made by the versatile client might fizzle (e.g., the client moves out of correspondence scope of cloudlets). In this paper, we build up an ideal offloading calculation for the portable client in such an irregularly associated cloudlet framework, considering the clients nearby load and accessibility of cloudlets. We look at clients' portability designs and cloudlets' affirmation control, and infer the likelihood of effective offloading activities logically. We plan and tackle a Markov choice procedure (MDP) model to acquire an ideal approach for the versatile client with the target to minimize the calculation and offloading costs. Moreover, we demonstrate that the ideal approach of the MDP has an edge structure. In this manner, we present a quick calculation for vitality compelled clients to settle on offloading choices. The numerical results demonstrate that the scientific type of the fruitful offloading likelihood is a decent estimation in different versatility cases. Besides, the proposed MDP offloading calculation for portable clients beats ordinary gauge plans.
Keywords- Markov choice procedure, offloading, versatile client.

4. Sisel Fiber Reinforced Concrete

Author- KunamineniVijay, Chintha Umamaheswar
Abstract- Concrete is strong in compression and weak in tension. So we will provide the reinforcement to the concrete. Majorly steel is used as the reinforcement. Many of the researches are in progress to find a substitute to this material. Many investigations proposed artificial fibres. In this project we would like to take the naturally available fibre named sisal fibre is taken as a substitute material to the reinforcement and studied the properties. The results show that the composites reinforced with sisal fibres are reliable materials to be used in practice for the production of structural elements to be used in rural and civil construction. This material could be a substitute to the steel reinforcement which production is a serious hazard to human and animal health and is prohibited in industrialized countries. The production of sisal fibres as compared with synthetic fibres or even with mineral asbestos fibres needs much less energy in addition to the ecological, social and economical benefits.

7. Effective Bug Assortment Using Data Reduction Techniques

Author- Swati Jain,Swapna Rose Wilson
Abstract- Software companies spend over 48% of their total cost to fix the bugs. An effective way to automatically fix the bugs to the correct developer is called Bug Triage or Bug Assortment. Data sets containing the bug reports are collected from two large open source projects like Mozilla and Firefox. These projects consist of open source bug repositories. Bug repositories are large repositories which stores all the details of bugs. The details are stored in the form of a bug report. These bug report are saved as a document and a related developer is mapped to the label of the document. Software companies spend most of their total cost in fixing these bugs. In bug repositories the two main challenges faced is the large quantity of the data set and the low quality. Noise and redundancy are the main cause for the low quality of the data set. However, irrespective of all these difficulties assigning a proper developer to fix the bug is not an easy task without knowing the actual class of the bug. In this paper we propose data reduction technique which reduces the high scale of the data but it retains the quality of the data set. We also propose domain wise bug solution.
Keywords- Bug, Bug Assortment, Dataset, Bug Repositories.

8. The Consensus Clustering as a Contribution to Parental Recognition Problem Based on Hand Biometrics

Author- Lucia Sousa
Abstract- The clustering analysis is a subject that has been interesting researchers from several areas, such as health (medical diagnosis, clustering of proteins and genes), marketing (market analysis and image segmentation), information management (clustering of web pages). The clustering algorithms are usually applied in Data Mining, allowing the identification of natural groups for a given data set. The use of different clustering methods for the same data set can produce different groups. So, several studies have been led to validate the resulting clusters. There has been an increasing interest on how to determine a consensus clustering that combines the different individual clusterings, reflecting the main structure in clusters inherent to each of them, as a perspective to get a higher quality clustering. As several techniques of consensus clustering have been researched, the present work focuses on problem of finding the best partition in the consensus clustering. We analyze the most referred techniques in literature, the consensus clustering techniques with different mechanisms to achieve the consensus, i.e.; Voting mechanisms; Co-association matrix; Mutual Information and hyper-graphs; and a multi-objective consensus clustering existing on literature. In this paper we discuss these approaches and a comparative study is presented, that considers a set of experiments using two-dimensional synthetic data sets with different characteristics, as number of clusters, their cardinality, shape, homogeneity and separability, and a real-world data set based on hand's biometrics shape, in context of people parental recognition. With this data we intend to investigate the ability of the consensus clustering algorithms in correctly cluster a child and her/his parents. This has an enormous business potential leading to a great economic value, since that with this technology a website can match data, as hand's photographs, and say if A and B are related somehow. We conclude that, in some cases, the multi-objective technique proved to outperform the other techniques, and unlike the other techniques, is little influenced by poor clustering even in situations like noise introduction and clusters with different homogeneity or overlapped. Furthermore, shows that can capture the performance of the best base clustering and still outperform it. Regarding to real data, no technique was capable of identifying a person's mother/father. However, the research of distances between hands from a person and its father, mother, siblings, can retrieve the probability of that person being his/her familiar. This doesn't enable the identification of relatives but instead, decreases the size of database for seeking the matches.

Author- Namrata Verma, Dr Nitin Mishra
Abstract- Notwithstanding the big amount of data being accrued in lots of scientific and business programs, specific occasions of pastimes are nevertheless pretty rare. Those uncommon events, very often known as outliers or anomalies, are described as activities that occur very every so often (their frequency stages from 5% to less than 0.01% relying at the application). Detection of anomalies (outliers or uncommon activities) has these days gained a lot of attention in many security domain names, ranging from video surveillance and protection systems to intrusion detection and fraudulent transactions. Website protection (also referred to as web utility protection, or webappsec) is a extensive subject, however most web sites have commonplace security issues that want to be addressed, no matter the precise technologies used or capabilities deployed.

Author- Dr. Chandrashekhar Bendigeri, Supreeth Kalburgi
Abstract- The Indian automotive buyer is very cost-conscious and the hence auto manufacturers are striving to bring in low cost of ownership with high fuel economy. Other than Initial cost and fuel consumption of the vehicle, damaged parts replacement and reparability of the vehicle is one of the major concerns of the customers. In cities, as the traffic density increases, low speed accidents are commonplace. Low speed impacts may cause significant vehicle damage and injuries to the occupants. In a low speed impact, the vehicle must withstand the crash with minimal damage so that repair costs remain low. Most of the vehicles on Indian road, mainly in entry and mid segment level cars don’t have the rear bumper beam as well the crush boxes. Automakers eliminate the crush box and rear impact beam mainly to reduce the product cost, as rear impact safety norm is not a part of Indian automotive safety regulation. The purpose of the project is to make customer, manufacturer and regulation body aware the importance of having the crush box and rear impact beam in the vehicle, in India mainly in metropolitan cities lots of vehicle collisions occur at a low speed because of increase in traffic densityAs crashing of actual vehicle to design a crush box is not cost effective, CAE tools like Hypermesh, Primer, Ansa are used for FE modelling and model assembly. Ls Dyna Explicit solver is used to simulate the real time crash event.

14. The Effect of User Charges on Access to Basic Education in Kenya

Author- Amunga Jane, Ondigi Benjamin
Abstract- In Kenya, the right to free basic education was enshrined by law in 2003 and expanded to include secondary schools under the new constitution. The Basic Education Act allows schools to impose other levies with the approval of the Cabinet Secretary in consultation with the County Education Board provided that no child is denied education because of failure to pay such charges. However, this has not been the case. In practice, there are a large number of different "fees" that households have to pay for publicly provided primary and secondary education, including tuition fees, compulsory uniforms, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) dues, and various special fees such as exam fees, and the like which have kept school age going children out of school. These fees are especially difficult for marginalized children such as females, orphans, and the financially underprivileged. For as long as many children of school going age still remain out of school, the achievement of vision 2030 remains a mirage since education and training of all Kenyans is an important ingredient under the social pillar in the realization of this vision. It is therefore recommended that, the government should meet the full costs of boarding in secondary schools in order to redress the imbalance between low and high social economic status families, provide adequate teaching and learning resources in public primary, and review the current capitation grant at both sub-sectors.
Keywords- User charges, access, basic education, marginalized and capitation grant.

24. Community App - Mobile Application

Author- Adnan Omar, Anmalu Ambika, Ghasem S. Alijani
Abstract- While the cost of a new item is usually given, the resale value of that item is often unknown. Pricing of resale items varies tremendously, often resulting in serious losses to the seller if the item is underpriced or to the buyer if the item is overpriced. To avoid this, an accurate understanding of depreciation is necessary. An asset's value declines over time due to use, wear and tear, and obsolescence. Known as depreciation, this decline is systematic: the net value of an item is adjusted periodically. A used item's net value, therefore, is the original purchase price less the accumulated reduction of value. Understanding this helps individuals or companies to manage the cost of assets and accurately estimate their book value at the end of each year of their useful life. Unfortunately, most individuals and companies lack the detailed knowledge necessary to accurately calculate depreciation. The objective of this study is to develop an application to accurately and rapidly determine the fair price of tangible assets using the sum of the year's digit depreciation method. The application will help individuals and companies to evaluate used items, whether for purchase or for sale, cost-effectively, accurately, and rapidly.
