    Researchers in the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) study social groups (of which internets are striking new examples), the new languages and literatures that grow in cybertext culture, and the beliefs and ideas that individuals submerge in their texts. HSS research thus has implications for our understanding of as diverse subjects as digital modes of discourse, mental health, and the ways in ... View full abstract»

    In order for organizations to succeed, they must be able to respond with flexibility in a geographically dispersed environment. Virtual organizations, which can form, disband, and re-form to meet ill-defined and emerging situations are playing an important role in organizational strategies. For virtual organizations to be successful, the system level elements of hardware, software and knowledge ma... View full abstract»

    Route switching is an important issue to connection-oriented communication that needs to maintain a route for a certain period. This paper suggests a new approach to ease the route switching problems in a network with higher migration rate of hosts. By monitoring the signal strength of messages, a host in a route that receives an incoming message can detect possible route fluctuations locally. As ... View full abstract»
