Recent developments in computer communications and networks have enabled the deployment of exciting new areas such as Internet of Things and collaborative big data analysis. The design and implementation of energy efficient future generation communication and networking technologies also require the clever research and development of mobile, pervasive, and large-scale computing technologies. Advances in Computer Communications and Networks: From... more...

Future communication networks aim to build an intelligent and efficient living environment by connecting a variety of heterogeneous networks to fulfill complicated tasks. These communication networks bring significant challenges in building secure and reliable communication networks to address the numerous threat and privacy concerns. New research technologies are essential to preserve privacy, prevent attacks, and achieve the requisite reliability.... more...

This book is written for anyone who is interested in how a field of research evolves and the fundamental role of understanding uncertainties involved in different levels of analysis, ranging from macroscopic views to meso- and microscopic ones. We introduce a series of computational and visual analytic techniques, from research areas such as text mining, deep learning, information visualization and science mapping, such that readers... more...

This book provides an overview of Moving Target Defense (MTD) and the importance of developing novel MTD schemes to protect distributed systems. It presents MTD-based research efforts to protect cloud data centers, along with network and security risk-aware approaches to place Virtual Machines (VM) in cloud data centers. These approaches include MTD-based network diversity models that enable an evaluation of the robustness of cloud... more...

This conference series was launched by the Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers (KIISE) Database Society of Korea as an annual forum for exploring novel technologies,... more...


The massive daily overflow of electronic data to information seekers creates the need for better ways to digest and organize this information to make it understandable and useful. Text mining, a variation of data mining, extracts desired information from large, unstructured text collections stored in electronic forms. The Handbook of Research on Text and Web Mining Technologies is the first comprehensive reference to the state of research in the... more...

This SpringerBrief presents adaptive resource allocation schemes for secondary users for dynamic spectrum access (DSA) in cognitive radio networks (CRNs) by considering Quality-of-Service requirements, admission control, power/rate control, interference constraints, and the impact of spectrum sensing or primary user interruptions. It presents the challenges, motivations, and applications of the different schemes. The authors discuss cloud-assisted... more...

This SpringerBrief presents intelligent spectrum sharing technologies for future wireless communication systems. It explains the widely used opportunistic spectrum access and TV white space sharing, which has been approved by the FCC. Four new technologies to significantly increase the efficiency of spectrum sharing are also introduced. The four technologies presented are Dynamic Spectrum Co-Access, Incentivized Cooperative Spectrum Sharing, On-Demand... more...
