Annually subsidized via the Korea Institute of knowledge safeguard and Crypt- ogy (KIISC), the fourth overseas convention on info protection and Cryptology (ICISC2001) used to be held on the sixty three development in Seoul, Korea, Dec- ber 6–7, 2001. The sixty three construction, which include 60 tales above the floor and three tales underground, stands hovering up into the sky at the island of Youido, the ny of Korea, and ranks by means of a long way the tallest of all structures within the nation. this system committee bought 102 submissions from 17 nations and areas (Australia, Belgium, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, The Netherlands, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, united kingdom, and USA), of which 32 have been chosen for presentation in eight periods. All submissions have been anonymously reviewed by means of at the very least three specialists within the correct parts. there has been one invited speak by means of David Pointcheval (ENS, France) on “Practical safety in Public-Key Cryptography”. we're very thankful to all of the application committee individuals who dedicated a lot e?ort and worthy time to examining and choosing the papers. those p- ceedingscontainthe?nalversionofeachpaperrevisedaftertheconference.Since the revised types weren't checked by way of this system committee carefully, the authors needs to endure complete accountability for the contents in their papers.

Unlike conventional combustion, gasification applied sciences supply the potential of changing coal and coffee or negative-value feedstocks, similar to petroleum coke and numerous waste material into usable strength assets or chemical substances. With more and more businesses working and advertising platforms according to gasification ideas around the globe, this publication combines the most recent info and real-world adventure in constructing gasification technologies.
Gasification applied sciences: A Primer for Engineers and Scientists discusses gasification ideas and the advantages of every one expertise, together with gasoline clean-up applied sciences and people utilized in hybrid structures and gas cells. It additionally money owed for the first items which are recovered and explains how those items are purified and will be used as gasoline or for purposes in petrochemical methods. The publication describes the stipulations within which optimum worth intermediate items could be recovered, targeting key elements similar to oxygen or air blown reactor, working temperature, inner and exterior heating, and reactor layout. The authors additionally identify how gasification might help meet renewable strength goals, handle matters approximately international warming, and give a contribution to a greater carbon administration or attaining Kyoto Protocol commitments.
Gasification applied sciences offer a multidimensional and well-rounded exam of present expertise, examine, functions, and improvement demanding situations for the commercialization of this more and more well known expertise.

This quantity includes the papers awarded on the twelfth SDL discussion board, Grimstad, Norway. The SDL discussion board was once ?rst held in 1982, after which each years from 1985. first and foremost the discussion board was once involved in basic terms with the Speci?cation and outline Language that used to be ?rst standardized within the 1976 Orange ebook of the Inter- tional Telecommunication Union (ITU). in view that then, many advancements came about and the language has passed through a number of alterations. notwithstanding, the most underlying paradigm has survived, and it's the explanation for the luck of the Speci?cation and outline Language in lots of initiatives. This paradigm is predicated at the following very important rules of dispensed - plications: verbal exchange: huge structures are usually defined utilizing smaller components that speak with one another; country: the platforms are defined at the foundation of an particular thought of kingdom; nation swap: the habit of the approach is defined by way of (local) alterations of the country. the unique language isn't the purely consultant for this type of paradigm, so the scope of the SDL discussion board used to be prolonged relatively quickly after the ?rst few occasions to additionally contain different ITU standardized languages of a similar kin, comparable to MSC, ASN.1 and TTCN. This ended in the present scope of process layout Languages coveringallstagesofthedevelopmentprocessincludinginparticularSDL,MSC, UML, ASN.1, eODL, TTCN, and URN. the point of interest is obviously at the merits to clients, and the way to get from those languages an identical virtue given by means of the ITU Speci?cation and outline Language: code new release from high-level speci?cations.

Research at the multifaceted elements of modeling, research, and synthesis of - guy gesture is receiving growing to be curiosity from either the educational and commercial groups. On one hand, fresh scienti?c advancements on cognition, on - fect/emotion, on multimodal interfaces, and on multimedia have opened new views at the integration of extra subtle versions of gesture in c- putersystems.Ontheotherhand,theconsolidationofnewtechnologiesenabling “disappearing” pcs and (multimodal) interfaces to be built-in into the traditional environments of clients are making it life like to contemplate tackling the complicated that means and subtleties of human gesture in multimedia structures, - abling a deeper, user-centered, better actual participation and event within the human-machine interplay method. The study courses supported through the ecu fee and s- eral nationwide associations and governments individuated in recent times strategic ?elds strictly thinking about gesture study. for instance, the DG Infor- tion Society of the eu fee (www.cordis.lu/ist) helps numerous projects, akin to the “Disappearing machine” and “Presence” EU-IST FET (Future and rising Technologies), the IST application “Interfaces & greater Audio-Visual providers” (see for instance the venture MEGA, Multisensory - pressive Gesture functions, www.megaproject.org), and the IST strategic - jective “Multimodal Interfaces.” a number of EC initiatives and different funded learn are represented within the chapters of this e-book. Awiderangeofapplicationscanbene?tfromadvancesinresearchongesture, from consolidated components similar to surveillance to new or rising ?elds comparable to remedy and rehabilitation, domestic purchaser items, leisure, and aud- visible, cultural and creative functions, simply to point out just a couple of of them.

This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints of the sixth foreign convention on software program Reuse, ICSR-6, held in Vienna, Austria, in June 2000.
The 26 revised complete papers provided have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from a number of submissions. The publication is split into topical sections on generative reuse and formal description languages, object-oriented equipment, product line architectures, specifications reuse and enterprise modeling, elements and libraries, and layout patterns.

Welcometothe6thInternationalWorkshoponPassiveandActiveMeasurement, held in Boston, Massuchusetts. PAM 2005 was once equipped via Boston college, with ?nancial aid from Endace dimension platforms and Intel. PAM keeps to develop and mature as a venue for study in all points of web dimension. This development is being pushed through expanding curiosity and job within the ?eld of web size. to deal with the expanding curiosity in PAM, this yr the workshop extra a steerage Committee, whose individuals will rotate, to supply continuity and oversight of the PAM workshop sequence. PAMplaysaspecialroleinthemeasurementcommunity. Itemphasizespr- matic, proper learn within the zone of community and net size. Its concentration re?ects the expanding figuring out that dimension is important to e?- tive engineering of the Internet’s parts. this is often essentially a invaluable function, as evidenced by way of the once a year raises within the variety of submissions, curiosity in, and attendance at PAM. PAM acquired eighty four submissions this 12 months. every one paper was once reviewed through 3 or 4 software Committee (PC) contributors in the course of the ?rst around. Papers that bought con?icting ratings have been extra reviewed through extra notebook contributors or exterior reviewers (typically two). finally reports have been got, every one paper with con?icting ratings was once mentioned largely through its reviewers, until eventually a c- sensus used to be reached. the computer put specific emphasis on making a choice on papers that have been clean and fascinating examine contributions. additionally, powerful choice was once given to papers that integrated validation effects according to genuine measurements.
