Recommender Systems (RS) are widely used to help people or group of people in finding their required information amid the issue of ever-growing information overload. The existing group recommender approaches consider users to be part of a single group only, but in real life a user may be associated with multiple groups having conflicting preference...

Despite significant infrastructure improvements, cloud computing still faces numerous challenges in terms of load balancing. Several techniques have been applied in the literature to improve load balancing efficiency. Recent research manifested that load balancing techniques based on metaheuristics provide better solutions for proper scheduling and...

Inductive Teaching Method (ITM) promotes effective learning in technological education (Felder & Silverman, 1988). Students prefer ITM more as it makes the subject easily understandable (Goltermann, 2011). The ITM motivates the students to actively participate in class activities and therefore could be considered a better approach to teach computer...

Cloud computing offers hardware and software resources delivered as services. It provides solutions for dynamic as well as “pay as you go” provision of resources. Energy consumption of these resources is high which leads to higher operational costs and carbon emissions in data centers. A number of research studies have been conducted on energy effi...

Among the many available online job searching solutions, very limited are proposed for non-literate users. The available solutions have tested the possibilities using static web pages which are not applicable in the real world for non-literate users because of the dynamism of the real world. In this research, a dynamic job search solution is presen...

People generally understand text better if the text is in their native language. Because of an increased use of personality assessment in the selection of employees and students, it is important to provide questionnaires in people’s local languages. In this study, we developed the 120-item International Personality Item Pool (IPIP) Urdu version usi...

Adult illiteracy is a major problem worldwide especially in developing countries. Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs working in this context are not very effective due to lack of motivation for the people who are not literate. The reason is inadequate learning content and content delivery methods. This situation calls for developing novel learnin...

Illiteracy is a major hurdle in socio-economic development of Pakistan. Research in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can help in tackling this issue by developing solutions tailored for illiterate population. The work presented within this paper proposes a job search website for illiterate population of KPK province of Pakistan. T...
Thesis
Nowadays knowledge-intensive collaborative work is performed by distributed teams of end-users. Collaboration Environments (CEs) enable such collaborative work by providing a variety of affordances, i.e., through applications, processes and artifacts. These affordances need to be continuously adjusted in order to support the needs of end-users in e...
Conference Paper
Distributed collaboration among teams involves dynamically changing situations. Making collaboration environment fit the needs of these situations is supported by system-initiated adaptation based on user and team context. Such adaptations may confuse the users, because they cannot remember all adaptation policies. In this paper we propose an appro...
Conference Paper
Making collaborative work environments fit the needs of changing collaboration situations is currently supported by collaborative tailoring or customization approaches requiring end-users to actively take initiative of tailoring or customization. We propose to avoid this overhead by (1) context-based adaptations of collaboration environments and (2...
Conference Paper
Context-based adaptation reduces the overhead of work breakdown identification and handling from end-users by automated system-initiated adjustments of behavior of collaborative system. But this approach makes adaptation awareness, understanding and revision difficult. We propose a process model guiding the interaction among end-users when dealing...
Conference Paper
Knowledge work in modern organizations is increasingly performed collaboratively by distributed teams. Such collaboration involves dynamically changing situations. Making the collaboration environment fit the needs of these situations is supported by system-initiated adaptation based on the user and team context. Adaptation in the collaboration env...

In this paper, we have implemented and evaluated the performance of local predecimation with range index communication parallelization strategy for fractal image compression on a beowulf cluster of workstations. The strategy effectively balances the load among workstations. We have evaluated the execution time of LPRI, varying the number of worksta...
Article
In this paper we implement and compare the performance of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) static master-worker and three strategies of MPI task farm implementations for fractal image compression on a Beowulf cluster of workstations, namely Local Predecimation with Range Index Communication (LPRI), Global Predecimation with Range Communication (...
