  • Infrastructure representation for container terminal simulation
    • Authors: Michal Kocifaj; Norbert Adamko
      Abstract: Abstract Microscopic simulation of container terminal is incomplete without sophisticated and authentic movement of mobile handling equipment. The modelled infrastructure has to be processed before the path finding takes its place. In this paper, the infrastructure is represented by navigation mesh which splits the traversable space into multiple convex polygons. A simple algorithm for creation of navigation mesh is presented, with some extensions dedicated to specific container terminals environment. Additional more complex algorithms are listed as well. Finally a combination of navigation mesh and grid-of-tiles approach is given.

  • A Survey of parallel intrusion detection on graphical processors
    • Authors: Liberios Vokorokos; Michal Ennert; Marek >Čajkovský; Ján Radušovský
      Abstract: Abstract Intrusion detection is enormously developing field of informatics. This paper provides a survey of actual trends in intrusion detection in academic research. It presents a review about the evolution of intrusion detection systems with usage of general purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPU). There are many detection techniques but only some of them bring advantages of parallel computing implementation to graphical processors (GPU). The most common technique transformed into GPU is the technique of pattern matching. There is a number of intrusion detection tools using GPU tested in real network traffic.

  • Complex time management in databases
    • Authors: Michal Kvet; Karol Matiaško; Marek Kvet
      Abstract: Abstract Temporal database is an extension of the concept of standard databases which process only current valid data. Temporal structure is not based only on managing historical data, but it should also model the data, the validity of which will be in the future in special structures. This paper deals with the temporal structure on object level in comparison with the column level temporal data. It describes the principles, required methods, procedures, functions and triggers to provide the functionality of this system. It also defines the possible implementations and offers the solution to get the snapshot of the database or the object whenever during the existence. The reason for column level solution development is based on the heterogeneity of the attributes time. Some attributes, however, do not change their values over the time or are updated very rarely, and therefore it is not necessary to record the new values for these attributes.

  • Reusable software documentation with phrase annotations
    • Authors: Milan Nosál’; Jaroslav Porubän
      Abstract: Problem Reoccurring software documentation fragments called documentation phrases crosscut documentation body and introduce undesired redundancy. The redundancy imposes problems with software documentation development and evolution. Objective We want to reduce the negative effect caused by documentation phrases redundancy by centralizing the documentation phrases sources. This way a documentation phrase will have a single source that can be used for maintenance and evolution. Method We discuss the nature of documentation phrases and argue for the support of their parametrization. We present a new documentation phrase instantiation method based on source code annotations. The provides free IDE support for writing documentation and is aided by our tool prototype. Results and contributions Our contributions of this paper include identification of documentation phrase parametrization and the annotation-based documentation phrase instantiation. The annotation-based documentation phrase instantiation method enables to reduce the effort needed for documentation development and evolution.

  • DSL-driven generation of Graphical User Interfaces
    • Authors: Michaela Bačíková; Jaroslav Porubän
      Abstract: Abstract Domain-specific languages (DSLs) are becoming more and more popular. However, the number of DSLs is still small when comparing to the number of existing applications. The results of our previous research showed that it is possible to speed up the DSL development process by aiding the first development phases (design and implementation). More specifically it is possible to generate DSLs from existing GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) of component-based applications. Now we want to use the generated DSLs and their models to generate new user interfaces or even whole new applications. To verify this claim, in this paper we use existing technologies which simplify the creation of web applications: iTasks. We also describe stereotypes of creating GUIs which we used to extract data from existing applications and to generate new applications. In the last part of this paper we limit the types of applications, which can be used for extraction based on our experiments with the prototype.

  • Using algorithm visualizations in computer science education
    • Authors: Slavomír Šimoňák
      Abstract: Abstract Algorithm visualization illustrates how algorithms work in a graphical way. It mainly aims to simplify and deepen the understanding of algorithms operation. Within the paper we discuss the possibility of enriching the standard methods of teaching algorithms, with the algorithm visualizations. As a step in this direction, we introduce the VizAlgo algorithm visualization platform, present our practical experiences and describe possible future directions, based on our experiences and exploration performed by means of a simple questionnaire.

  • Database reverse engineering based on meta-models
    • Authors: Sonja Ristić; Slavica Aleksić; Milan Čeliković; Vladimir Dimitrieski; Ivan Luković
      Abstract: Reengineering is one of the key concepts in software maintenance and evolution. It generally includes some form of reverse engineering followed by some form of forward engineering or restructuring. In the paper we focus on database reverse engineering. Model-driven software engineering promotes the idea of abstracting implementation details by focusing on: models as first class entities and automated generation of models or code from other models. In the approach meta-models are used to define the modeling languages. A database reverse engineering process can benefit of integrating meta-modeling and meta-models in the process. The plethora of models related to databases points out to the need and importance of model-to-model transformations between these models at different abstraction levels. These transformations are based on meta-models that are conformed by the source and target models of the transformations. A database reverse engineering process can be performed through a chain of model-to-model transformations based on a set of meta-models. In the paper we discuss the importance of meta-modeling in the context of database reverse engineering and present a case study illustrating an approach to database reverse engineering.

  • Categorical structures as expressing tool for differential calculus
    • Authors: William Steingartner; Davorka Radaković
      Abstract: Category is a mathematical structure consisting of objects and morphisms between objects with some specific properties. Categories examine in abstract way the properties of particular mathematical concepts by formalizing them as collections of objects and morphisms. Categorical structures are widely used in computer science for exact mathematical modeling. This paper highlights the most typical use of categories for constructing the model of part of differential calculus by using special category named arrow category; and codomain and domain functors.

  • Abstract syntax driven approach for language composition
    • Authors: Sergej Chodarev; Dominik Lakatoš; Jaroslav Porubän; Ján Kollár
      Abstract: Popularity of domain-specific languages brings the problem of language components reuse. It should be possible to use parts of different languages in development of new one to lower costs and also allow incremental development. This problem could be solved using the composition of languages. In this paper we discuss the view of language composition from the perspective of concepts composition, where the role of concrete syntax is lowered. We present examples of language composition based on the principles of object composition implemented using YAJCo parser generator, that allows to specify the language based on its abstract syntax.

  • Genetic evolution of programs
    • Authors: Ján Kollár; Emília Pietriková
      Abstract: Abstract We present evolutionary approach to program development based on absorption of genetic strings at different metalevels. Introducing the principles of software evolution as processes of semantical stability, expansion and contraction, we continue with an example illustrating how it is possible to integrate metalevel with base level and how this integrated computation works when driven by genetic string of codons, determining decisions for program construction and the result of constructed program execution. Next, we analyse the evolutionary circle at metalevel and we show that mentioned expansion and contraction is possible. The main contribution of the paper is that it breaks classic boundaries between models and programs because formal binding of metalevels and base level have been reached.

  • Acceleration of ray tracing method using predictive evaluation and GPGPU
    • Authors: Branislav Sobota; Štefan Korečko; Csaba Szabó; František Hrozek
      Abstract: Abstract Ray tracing is one of computer graphics methods for achieving the most realistic outputs. Its main disadvantage is high computation demands. Removal of this disadvantage is possible using parallelization due to the fact that the ray tracing method is inherently parallel. Solution presented in this article uses GPGPU (general-purpose computing on graphics processing units) technology and a predictive evaluation for the acceleration of ray tracing method. The CUDA C was selected as a GPGPU language and it was used for a conversion of a raytracer core. The main reason for choosing this language was usage of the Tesla C1060 graphics card. The predictive evaluation of a scene was based on the fact that total computation time increases proportionally with resolution. This evaluation allows selection of the optimal scene division for the parallel ray tracing. In tests, proposed GPGPU solution reached accelerations up to 28.3× comparing to CPU.

  • Speeding up simultaneous alignment and folding of RNA sequences
    • Authors: Mária Šimalová; Gabriela Andrejková
      Abstract: Abstract In the paper, we describe and develop more effective solutions of two important problems in bioinformatics. The first problem is the multiple sequence alignment problem and the second problem is RNA secondary structure prediction (folding) problem. Each of these problems should be solved with better results if we know the solution of the other one, but usually we only have sequences and we know neither the alignment nor the secondary structure. Precise algorithms solving both of these problems simultaneously are computationally pretentious according to the big length of RNA sequences. In this paper, we have described the method of speeding up the Sankoff’s simultaneous alignment and folding algorithm using the Carrillo-Lipman approach to cut off those computations, that can never lead to an optimal solution.

  • Learning object-oriented paradigm by playing computer games: concepts
           first approach
    • Authors: Jakub Livovský; Jaroslav Porubän
      Abstract: Abstract Since the beginning of teaching object-oriented programming at universities in the mid 90’s, university teachers are trying to come up with more effective ways of teaching. Number of researches has been made in this area. They are trying to identify errors teachers are making in learning process. These researches suggest different teaching methodologies and tools, which should help them to avoid these mistakes. The subject of this paper is to present a solution we developed to teach and illustrate basic concepts of object oriented paradigm through playing of computer game. In this approach, we are teaching basic principles, such as class, objects and relationship between them in the beginning of object oriented programming (OOP) course and postpone learning of specific objective language to later time. Also we are taking advantage of attractiveness of computer games to increase students motivation, which should lead to improved learning performance of students.

The analysis is focused on the context of managing resources and tasks in the elastic cluster. In this work design, model and implementation of scheduling algorithm is described. The scheduling algorithm is based on particle swarm optimization (PSO) and hill climbing (HC) optimization and it is appropriate combination of good features the both methods. The algorithm is implemented on HPC cluster into the resource manager Torque. There is included methodology of measurement and evaluation of the algorithm. The paper presents methods of verifying behaviour of algorithm for different tasks requirements, which are typical for grid or elastic cluster. We compare suitability of the proposed algorithm with known solutions. On the base of analysed results is confirmed that proposed algorithm better satisfies specific criteria of elastic cluster.

  • Medical procedure breaches detection using a fuzzy clustering approach
    • Authors: Radu Găceanu; Horia Pop
      Abstract: Abstract We present a fuzzy clustering approach for detecting flaws in the application of predefined medical protocols. In case of cardiac arrest, the outcome of the intervention is greatly influenced by the precise compliance to certain predefined procedures. We propose a clustering scheme in order to detect possible deviations from the standard protocols. Several interacting agents are employed in this regard. The fuzziness of our approach allows the discovery hybrid data which in this case may be an indication of the medical intervention quality level. We provide experiments on a dataset containing information from real patients that suffered cardiac arrest, on a synthetic dataset and on a standard dataset.

  • Hybrid neural network for classification problem solving
    • Authors: Eugene Kotliarov; Tatyana Petrushina
      Abstract: Abstract In this article we investigate some approaches to the artificial neural networks training with use of hybrid algorithms. Algorithms which are based on the back propagation algorithm and the ant colony algorithm are considered in detail. The article describes the application of the artificial neural network with the authors’ hybrid training algorithm. The preliminary studies have shown that the algorithm improves the efficiency of the problems on standard test databases. The application of the algorithm for practical problems solution in the field of medicine, namely the definition of danger level determination of tuberculosis carriers is described. It was shown that the accuracy of the hybrid algorithm is up to 22% higher than of the classical one.

  • Building a 256-bit hash function on a stronger MD variant
    • Authors: Harshvardhan Tiwari; Krishna Asawa
      Abstract: Abstract Cryptographic hash functions are important cryptographic techniques and are used widely in many cryptographic applications and protocols. All the MD4 design based hash functions such as MD5, SHA-1, RIPEMD-160 and FORK-256 are built on Merkle-Damgård iterative method. Recent differential and generic attacks against these popular hash functions have shown weaknesses of both specific hash functions and their underlying Merkle-Damgård construction. In this paper we propose a hash function follows design principle of NewFORK-256 and based on HAIFA construction. Its compression function takes three inputs and generates a single output of 256-bit length. An extra input to a compression function is a 64-bit counter (number of bits hashed so far). HAIFA construction shows strong resistance against major generic and other cryptanalytic attacks. The security of proposed hash function against generic attacks, differential attack, birthday attack and statistical attack was analyzed in detail. It is shown that the proposed hash function has high sensitivity to an input message and is secure against different cryptanalytic attacks.
