The FutureTech 2012 is intended to foster the dissemination of state-of-the-art research in all future IT areas, including their models, services, and novel applications associated with their utilization. The FutureTech 2012 will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in this area. In addition, the conference will publish high quality papers which are closely related to the various theories, modeling, and practical applications in many types of future technology. The main scope of FutureTech 2012 is as follows.
Hybrid Information Technology
Cloud and Cluster Computing
Ubiquitous Networks and Wireless Communications
Intelligent and Pervasive Applications
Security and Trust Computing
IT Management and Service
Bioinformatics and Bio-Inspired Computing
Database and Data Mining
Knowledge System and Intelligent Agent
Human-centric Computing and Social Networks
The FutureTech is a major forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to present the latest research, results, ideas, developments and applications in all areas of future technologies.
New multimedia standards (for example, MPEG-21) facilitate the seamless integration of multiple modalities into interoperable multimedia frameworks, transforming the way people work and interact with multimedia data. These key technologies and multimedia solutions interact and collaborate with each other in increasingly effective ways, contributing to the multimedia revolution and having a significant impact across a wide spectrum of consumer, business, healthcare, education, and governmental domains.
This professional volume introduces the technical issues surrounding security as well as how security policies are formulated at the executive level and communicated throughout the organization. Readers will gain a better understanding of how their colleagues on "the other side of the fence" view an organization’s security and will thus be better equipped to act in a way that forwards an organization’s goals.
Network Security Policies and Procedures is intended for both technical and management professionals interested in learning how security manifests itself throughout all levels of an organization. This book is also suitable for advanced-level students in computer science and electrical engineering.
Access to Mobile Services provides an in-depth survey of wireless data access and motivates the need to treat mobile services differently. A wireless adaptation of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is also covered.
Designed for researchers and practitioners who work in the general area of mobile services, this book is also suitable for advanced-level students in computer science.
