  • A Survey of Communication Performance Models for High-Performance
    • Abstract: Juan A. Rico-Gallego, Juan C. Díaz-Martín, Ravi Reddy Manumachu, Alexey L. Lastovetsky

      This survey aims to present the state of the art in analytic communication performance models, providing sufficiently detailed descriptions of particularly noteworthy efforts. Modeling the cost of communications in computer clusters is an important and challenging problem. It provides insights into the design of the communication pattern of parallel scientific applications and mathematical kernels and sets a clear ground for optimization of their deployment in the increasingly complex high-performance computing infrastructure. The survey provides background information on how different performance models represent the underlying platform and shows the evolution of these models over time from early clusters of single-core processors to present-day multi-core and heterogeneous platforms.

  • A Taxonomy and Future Directions for Sustainable Cloud Computing: 360
           Degree View
    • Abstract: Sukhpal Singh Gill, Rajkumar Buyya

      The cloud-computing paradigm offers on-demand services over the Internet and supports a wide variety of applications. With the recent growth of Internet of Things (IoT)--based applications, the use of cloud services is increasing exponentially. The next generation of cloud computing must be energy efficient and sustainable to fulfill end-user requirements, which are changing dynamically. Presently, cloud providers are facing challenges to ensure the energy efficiency and sustainability of their services. The use of a large number of cloud datacenters increases cost as well as carbon footprints, which further affects the sustainability of cloud services. In this article, we propose a comprehensive taxonomy of sustainable cloud computing.

  • A Systematic Review for Smart City Data Analytics
    • Abstract: Vaia Moustaka, Athena Vakali, Leonidas G. Anthopoulos

      Smart cities (SCs) are becoming highly sophisticated ecosystems at which innovative solutions and smart services are being deployed. These ecosystems consider SCs as data production and sharing engines, setting new challenges for building effective SC architectures and novel services. The aim of this article is to “connect the pieces” among Data Science and SC domains, with a systematic literature review which identifies the core topics, services, and methods applied in SC data monitoring. The survey focuses on data harvesting and data mining processes over repeated SC data cycles. A survey protocol is followed to reach both quantitative and semantically important entities.

  • Knee Articular Cartilage Segmentation from MR Images: A Review
    • Abstract: Dileep Kumar, Akash Gandhamal, Sanjay Talbar, Ahmad Fadzil Mohd Hani

      Articular cartilage (AC) is a flexible and soft yet stiff tissue that can be visualized and interpreted using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the assessment of knee osteoarthritis. Segmentation of AC from MR images is a challenging task that has been investigated widely. The development of computational methods to segment AC is highly dependent on various image parameters, quality, tissue structure, and acquisition protocol involved. This review focuses on the challenges faced during AC segmentation from MR images followed by the discussion on computational methods for semi/fully automated approaches, whilst performances parameters and their significances have also been explored. Furthermore, hybrid approaches used to segment AC are reviewed.

  • Host-Based Intrusion Detection System with System Calls: Review and Future
    • Abstract: Ming Liu, Zhi Xue, Xianghua Xu, Changmin Zhong, Jinjun Chen

      In a contemporary data center, Linux applications often generate a large quantity of real-time system call traces, which are not suitable for traditional host-based intrusion detection systems deployed on every single host. Training data mining models with system calls on a single host that has static computing and storage capacity is time-consuming, and intermediate datasets are not capable of being efficiently handled. It is cumbersome for the maintenance and updating of host-based intrusion detection systems (HIDS) installed on every physical or virtual host, and comprehensive system call analysis can hardly be performed to detect complex and distributed attacks among multiple hosts.

  • Engagement in HCI: Conception, Theory and Measurement
    • Abstract: Kevin Doherty, Gavin Doherty

      Engaging users is a priority for designers of products and services of every kind. The need to understand users’ experiences has motivated a focus on user engagement across computer science. However, to date, there has been limited review of how Human--Computer Interaction and computer science research interprets and employs the concept. Questions persist concerning its conception, abstraction, and measurement. This article presents a systematic review of engagement spanning a corpus of 351 articles and 102 definitions. We map the current state of engagement research, including the diverse interpretation, theory, and measurement of the concept.

  • Survey on Computational Trust and Reputation Models
    • Abstract: Diego De Siqueira Braga, Marco Niemann, Bernd Hellingrath, Fernando Buarque De Lima Neto

      Over the recent years, computational trust and reputation models have become an invaluable method to improve computer-computer and human-computer interaction. As a result, a considerable amount of research has been published trying to solve open problems and improving existing models. This survey will bring additional structure into the already conducted research on both topics. After recapitulating the major underlying concepts, a new integrated review and analysis scheme for reputation and trust models is put forward. Using highly recognized review papers in this domain as a basis, this article will also introduce additional evaluation metrics to account for characteristics so far unstudied.

    • Abstract: Rajkumar Buyya, Satish Narayana Srirama, Giuliano Casale, Rodrigo Calheiros, Yogesh Simmhan, Blesson Varghese, Erol Gelenbe, Bahman Javadi, Luis Miguel Vaquero, Marco A. S. Netto, Adel Nadjaran Toosi, Maria Alejandra Rodriguez, Ignacio M.

Zomaya, Haiying Shen

      The Cloud computing paradigm has revolutionised the computer science horizon during the past decade and has enabled the emergence of computing as the fifth utility. It has captured significant attention of academia, industries, and government bodies. Now, it has emerged as the backbone of modern economy by offering subscription-based services anytime, anywhere following a pay-as-you-go model. This has instigated (1) shorter establishment times for start-ups, (2) creation of scalable global enterprise applications, (3) better cost-to-value associativity for scientific and high-performance computing applications, and (4) different invocation/execution models for pervasive and ubiquitous applications. The recent technological developments and paradigms such as serverless computing, software-defined networking, Internet of Things, and processing at network edge are creating new opportunities for Cloud computing.

  • Relation Extraction Using Distant Supervision: A Survey
    • Abstract: Alisa Smirnova, Philippe Cudré-Mauroux

      Relation extraction is a subtask of information extraction where semantic relationships are extracted from natural language text and then classified. In essence, it allows us to acquire structured knowledge from unstructured text. In this article, we present a survey of relation extraction methods that leverage pre-existing structured or semi-structured data to guide the extraction process. We introduce a taxonomy of existing methods and describe distant supervision approaches in detail. We describe, in addition, the evaluation methodologies and the datasets commonly used for quality assessment.

  • A Survey of Cloudlet-Based Mobile Augmentation Approaches for Resource
    • Abstract: M. Ziad Nayyer, Imran Raza, Syed Asad Hussain

      Mobile devices (MDs) face resource scarcity challenges owing to limited energy and computational resources. Mobile cloud computing (MCC) offers a resource-rich environment to MDs for offloading compute-intensive tasks encountering resource scarcity challenges. However, users are unable to exploit its full potential owing to challenges of distance, limited bandwidth, and seamless connectivity between the remote cloud (RC) and MDs in the conventional MCC model. The cloudlet-based solution is widely used to address these challenges. The response of the cloudlet-based solution is faster than the conventional mobile cloud-computing model, rendering it suitable for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Cities (SC). However, with the increase in devices and workloads, the cloudlet-based solution has to deal with resource-scarcity challenges, thus, forwarding the requests to remote clouds.

  • A Survey and Taxonomy of Core Concepts and Research Challenges in
           Cross-Platform Mobile Development
    • Abstract: Andreas Biørn-Hansen, Tor-Morten Grønli, Gheorghita Ghinea

      Developing applications targeting mobile devices is a complex task involving numerous options, technologies, and trade-offs, mostly due to the proliferation and fragmentation of devices and platforms. As a result of this, cross-platform app development has enjoyed the attention of practitioners and academia for the previous decade. Throughout this review, we assess the academic body of knowledge and report on the state of research on the field. We do so with a particular emphasis on core concepts, including those of user experience, device features, performance, and security. Our findings illustrate that the state of research demand for empirical verification of an array of unbacked claims, and that a particular focus on qualitative user-oriented research is essential.

  • A Survey of Petri Nets Slicing
    • Abstract: Yasir Imtiaz Khan, Alexandros Konios, Nicolas Guelfi

      Petri nets slicing is a technique that aims to improve the verification of systems modeled in Petri nets. Petri nets slicing was first developed to facilitate debugging, but then was used for the alleviation of the state space explosion problem for the model checking of Petri nets. In this article, different slicing techniques are studied along with their algorithms introducing: (i) a classification of Petri nets slicing algorithms based on their construction methodology and objective (such as improving state space analysis or testing); (ii) a qualitative and quantitative discussion and comparison of major differences such as accuracy and efficiency: (iii) a syntactic unification of slicing algorithms that improve state space analysis for easy and clear understanding; and (iv) applications of slicing for multiple perspectives.

  • Machine Learning in Network Centrality Measures: Tutorial and Outlook
    • Abstract: Felipe Grando, Lisandro Z. Granville, Luis C. Lamb

      Complex networks are ubiquitous to several computer science domains. Centrality measures are an important analysis mechanism to uncover vital elements of complex networks. However, these metrics have high computational costs and requirements that hinder their applications in large real-world networks. In this tutorial, we explain how the use of neural network learning algorithms can render the application of the metrics in complex networks of arbitrary size. Moreover, the tutorial describes how to identify the best configuration for neural network training and learning such for tasks, besides presenting an easy way to generate and acquire training data. We do so by means of a general methodology, using complex network models adaptable to any application.

  • A Survey on Self-Adaptive Security for Large-scale Open Environments
    • Abstract: Giannis Tziakouris, Rami Bahsoon, Muhammad Ali Babar

      Contemporary software systems operate in heterogeneous, dynamic, and distributed environments, where security needs change at runtime. The security solutions for such systems need to be adaptive for the continuous satisfaction of the software systems’ security goals. Whilst the existing research on self-adaptive security has made notable advancement towards designing and engineering self-adaptive security solutions, there exists little work on the taxonomic analysis of the architectures of the reported research and its applicability for open and ultra-large environments. We propose an architecture-centric taxonomy for mapping and comparing the current research and identifying the future research directions in this field. The proposed taxonomy has been used to review the representative work on the architectural characteristics that self-adaptive security systems must maintain for their effective application in large-scale open environments.

  • Security of Distance-Bounding: A Survey
    • Abstract: Gildas Avoine, Muhammed Ali Bingöl, Ioana Boureanu, Srdjan čapkun, Gerhard Hancke, Süleyman Kardaş, Chong Hee Kim, Cédric Lauradoux, Benjamin Martin, Jorge Munilla, Alberto Peinado, Kasper Bonne Rasmussen, Dave Singelée, Aslan Tchamkerten, Rolando Trujillo-Rasua, Serge Vaudenay

      Distance-bounding protocols allow a verifier to both authenticate a prover and evaluate whether the latter is located in his vicinity. These protocols are of particular interest in contactless systems, e.g., electronic payment or access control systems, which are vulnerable to distance-based frauds. This survey analyzes and compares in a unified manner many existing distance-bounding protocols with respect to several key security and complexity features.

  • A Survey on Deep Learning: Algorithms, Techniques, and Applications
    • Abstract: Samira Pouyanfar, Saad Sadiq, Yilin Yan, Haiman Tian, Yudong Tao, Maria Presa Reyes, Mei-Ling Shyu, Shu-Ching Chen, S. S. Iyengar

      The field of machine learning is witnessing its golden era as deep learning slowly becomes the leader in this domain. Deep learning uses multiple layers to represent the abstractions of data to build computational models. Some key enabler deep learning algorithms such as generative adversarial networks, convolutional neural networks, and model transfers have completely changed our perception of information processing. However, there exists an aperture of understanding behind this tremendously fast-paced domain, because it was never previously represented from a multiscope perspective. The lack of core understanding renders these powerful methods as black-box machines that inhibit development at a fundamental level.

  • Triclustering Algorithms for Three-Dimensional Data Analysis: A
           Comprehensive Survey
    • Abstract: Rui Henriques, Sara C. Madeira

      Three-dimensional data are increasingly prevalent across biomedical and social domains. Notable examples are gene-sample-time, individual-feature-time, or node-node-time data, generally referred to as observation-attribute-context data. The unsupervised analysis of three-dimensional data can be pursued to discover putative biological modules, disease progression profiles, and communities of individuals with coherent behavior, among other patterns of interest. It is thus key to enhance the understanding of complex biological, individual, and societal systems. In this context, although clustering can be applied to group observations, its relevance is limited since observations in three-dimensional data domains are typically only meaningfully correlated on subspaces of the overall space. Biclustering tackles this challenge but disregards the third dimension.

  • A Survey on Compiler Autotuning using Machine Learning
    • Abstract: Amir H. Ashouri, William Killian, John Cavazos, Gianluca Palermo, Cristina Silvano

      Since the mid-1990s, researchers have been trying to use machine-learning-based approaches to solve a number of different compiler optimization problems. These techniques primarily enhance the quality of the obtained results and, more importantly, make it feasible to tackle two main compiler optimization problems: optimization selection (choosing which optimizations to apply) and phase-ordering (choosing the order of applying optimizations). The compiler optimization space continues to grow due to the advancement of applications, increasing number of compiler optimizations, and new target architectures. Generic optimization passes in compilers cannot fully leverage newly introduced optimizations and, therefore, cannot keep up with the pace of increasing options.

  • A Critical Review of Proactive Detection of Driver Stress Levels Based on
           Multimodal Measurements
    • Abstract: Mohammad Naim RASTGOO, Bahareh Nakisa, Andry Rakotonirainy, Vinod Chandran, Dian Tjondronegoro

      Stress is a major concern in daily life, as it imposes significant and growing health and economic costs on society every year. Stress and driving are a dangerous combination and can lead to life-threatening situations, evidenced by the large number of road traffic crashes that occur every year due to driver stress. In addition, the rate of general health issues caused by work-related chronic stress in drivers who work in public and private transport is greater than in many other occupational groups. An in-vehicle warning system for driver stress levels is needed to continuously predict dangerous driving situations and proactively alert drivers to ensure safe and comfortable driving.

  • Is Multimedia Multisensorial' - A Review of Mulsemedia Systems
    • Abstract: Alexandra Covaci, Longhao Zou, Irina Tal, Gabriel-Miro Muntean, Gheorghita Ghinea

      Mulsemedia—multiple sensorial media—makes possible the inclusion of layered sensory stimulation and interaction through multiple sensory channels. The recent upsurge in technology and wearables provides mulsemedia researchers a vehicle for potentially boundless choice. However, in order to build systems that integrate various senses, there are still some issues that need to be addressed. This review deals with mulsemedia topics that remain insufficiently explored by previous work, with a focus on the multi-multi (multiple media-multiple senses) perspective, where multiple types of media engage multiple senses. Moreover, it addresses the evolution of previously identified challenges in this area and formulates new exploration directions.

  • A Survey on Gait Recognition
    • Abstract: Changsheng Wan, Li Wang, Vir V. Phoha

      Recognizing people by their gait has become more and more popular nowadays due to the following reasons. First, gait recognition can work well remotely. Second, gait recognition can be done from low-resolution videos and with simple instrumentation. Third, gait recognition can be done without the cooperation of individuals. Fourth, gait recognition can work well while other features such as faces and fingerprints are hidden. Finally, gait features are typically difficult to be impersonated. Recent ubiquity of smartphones that capture gait patterns through accelerometers and gyroscope and advances in machine learning have opened new research directions and applications in gait recognition. A timely survey that addresses current advances is missing.

  • A Survey on Game-Theoretic Approaches for Intrusion Detection and Response
    • Abstract: Christophe Kiennert, Ziad Ismail, Herve Debar, Jean Leneutre

      Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are key components for securing critical infrastructures, capable of detecting malicious activities on networks or hosts. However, the efficiency of an IDS depends primarily on both its configuration and its precision. The large amount of network traffic that needs to be analyzed, in addition to the increase in attacks’ sophistication, renders the optimization of intrusion detection an important requirement for infrastructure security, and a very active research subject. In the state of the art, a number of approaches have been proposed to improve the efficiency of intrusion detection and response systems. In this article, we review the works relying on decision-making techniques focused on game theory and Markov decision processes to analyze the interactions between the attacker and the defender, and classify them according to the type of the optimization problem they address.

  • A Survey of Methods for Explaining Black Box Models
    • Abstract: Riccardo Guidotti, Anna Monreale, Salvatore Ruggieri, Franco Turini, Fosca Giannotti, Dino Pedreschi

      In recent years, many accurate decision support systems have been constructed as black boxes, that is as systems that hide their internal logic to the user. This lack of explanation constitutes both a practical and an ethical issue. The literature reports many approaches aimed at overcoming this crucial weakness, sometimes at the cost of sacrificing accuracy for interpretability. The applications in which black box decision systems can be used are various, and each approach is typically developed to provide a solution for a specific problem and, as a consequence, it explicitly or implicitly delineates its own definition of interpretability and explanation.
