    Business process modeling is an important part of each software development project. No software is developed without specifying it's use within the context of business processes. Since business process modeling is an important task during requirements engineering, in our opinion the same basic modeling notions should be used. This paper gives a first proposal how this can be done. View full abstract»

    In this paper, an ontology model is proposed for developing new concepts in the realm of enterprise knowledge management via applying an approach called concept composition. Regarding this, when two concepts are composed, the corresponding nodes in the ontologies of their Basics, become subject to conjunction using some rules. The new ontology obtained in this way, can be proposed as an alternativ... View full abstract»

    In this paper we present a rule-based formalism for the representation, acquisition, and application of translation knowledge. The formalism is being used successfully in a Japanese-English machine translation system. The translation knowledge is learnt automatically from a parallel corpus using structural matching between the parse trees of translation examples. We have developed a comfortable us...

    The backhaul transmission network is the most difficult segment of a cellular network to upgrade for mobile broadband. Backhaul cannot easily be scaled-up and therefore for mobile broadband the capacity bottleneck shifts from the radio link to the backhaul. This paper explores how cellular traffic switching can cut backhaul requirements while improving 2G/3G network flexibility. View full abstract»

    Structured P2P network is popular nowadays. However, the network needs reorganized when the peers are joining or leaving. To reduce the performance degradation caused by the reorganizations, we proposed a two-layer hybrid P2P network (HP2P). The upper layer is chord network and the lower layer is cluster in HP2P. In this paper, the cluster is described in detail. Peers are organized into clusters,... View full abstract»
