    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a model for searching and grouping of business process models. To search business process models, the model contains a module for multimodal indexing that takes into account textual and structural information of models. To group models, an adaptation of the Lingo algorithm was used; it is based on singular value decomposition and frequent phrases extracted from the description (textual and structural information) of the business process models retrieved according to a query. The evaluation of model was conducted by executing the search process on a closed test-collection built collaboratively, that containing 146 business process models, and comparing the results with a set of relevant business process models obtained from an evaluation issued by 59 experts. Measures of relevance such as graded precision and recall shown promising results in the search process, as well as the quality assessment of the sets formed by the grouping process.

    ABSTRACT: Web services work over dynamic connections among distributed systems. This technology was specifically designed to easily pass SOAP message through firewalls using open ports. These benefits involve a number of security challenges, such as Injection Attacks, phishing, Denial-of-Services (DoS) attacks, and so on. The difficulty to detect vulnerabilities,before they are exploited, encourages developers to use security testing like penetration testing to reduce the potential attacks. Given a black-box approach, this research use the penetration testing to emulate a series of attacks, such as Cross-site Scripting (XSS), Fuzzing Scan, Invalid Types, Malformed XML, SQL Injection, XPath Injection and XML Bomb. In this way, was used the soapUI vulnerability scanner in order to emulate these attacks and insert malicious scripts in the requests of the web services tested. Furthermore, was developed a set of rules to analyze the responses in order to reduce false positives and negatives. The results suggest that 97.1% of web services have at least one vulnerability of these attacks. We also determined a ranking of these attacks against web services.

    ABSTRACT: Evaluation of medical image segmentation methods is an important task, frequently ignored in the medical image and computer vision community. Several scalar evaluation metrics have been proposed in the literature. Nevertheless, few efforts have been made to characterize the evaluation metrics. It is well-known that metrics measure different characteristics, in such way they might vary greatly among problem domains. Therefore, some of them will be more suitable in particular situations. In this paper, we analyze the behavior and ability of 17 discrepancy metrics to retain its value under a set of changes in a confusion matrix. We also perform an analysis of the consistency among peer metrics by using Pearson's correlation. Our aim is to provide a valuable insight to select the most suitable .discrepancy metric and show their advantages and weakness

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes an investigation to determine the impact of mobile technologies to support student learning in Computer Science students. It has been taken as sample students of the Faculty of Computer Science (Facultad de Informática) of the “Universidad Autónoma de Sinaloa, México”. Has been considered 152 study subjects, who are a representative sample, all of them use mobile devices in their daily lives, even during their stay in the University. An instrument was designed to survey: the 152 individuals, among which were interviewed: i) teachers, from the eight knowledge areas that compose the academies; ii) the computer labs managers; and iii) the school control department administrators. All the individuals interviewed, students, teachers and administrative staff, felt that mobile technology is the source of improvement of students qualifications and their academic performance. The reasons exposed by them agreed in the availability of access to Internet, ease of communication with teachers, classmates and the motivation to use a mobile device connected to the Internet. Interesting, from the 152 respondents, 86% say they use their smart phone or tablet to play, but most of them also used as support in their learning, and the 79% of these fellows would like to be implemented officially mobile technology as a means of learning in the University.

    ABSTRACT: This paper shows how the detailed examination of active and nonactive power components may produce new information for modern smart meters. For this purpose, a prototype of electronic power meter has been implemented and applied to the evaluation of the Conservative Power Theory (CPT). Considering five sorts of loads, under four different operating conditions, the experimental results indicate that the CPT is able to provide a good methodology for load characterization, which could possibly benefits consumers and power utilities in several different ways. The results also show that depending on the situation, the analysis of nonactive power terms may be more important than the observation of traditional power quality indices, such as total harmonic distortion, unbalance factors or the fundamental positive sequence power factor.
