Paper Title:

Problems of Urbanization of Azerbaijan

Abstract:  In the article the appearance of cities, urban development, socio-economic development, the concentration of production, population and settlement, based on scientific and technological progress is the result of industrial production, is talking about the problems arising in the process of urbanization. The regulation of agglomeration that is the result of urbanization development in spite of its being of current importance is a poor investigated and difficult-to-resolve problem. The thorough changes which have occurred in the economic, social and political life of the country in the course of last years from the geographical - territorial, industrial point of view are such an important, diversified and dynamic processes that the scientific perception and research on demand of time of the new realities connected with them has turned to a burning problem. The special role of urbanization stems out from its origin of occurrence of urban environment. Social-economic, cultural and demographic settling expands its positions on the historical stages of evolution processes and is developed qualitatively and quantitatively. Integration and planning, town studies from the urbanization viewpoint is a subject of inquiry by different sciences - economy, economic-social geography as well as urban planners. Within the circle of their attraction power and surrounded by unitary areas the towns cause the occurrence of tight reciprocal relationships, integration processes and promotes the vanish of insulation, isolation typical for the past.Nowadays, the increase of city agglomerations and transport-economic relationships, disappearance of major differences between towns and villages promotes economic-social housing in the territorial and regional system as well as migration relationships. Historically, Baku city was placed in area of oil-and-gas fields and has been surrounded with areas of their operation. Now because of an arrangement of Baku city and adjoining regions, oil fields, and also more than 50 densely populated settlements of city type and the working settlements located in an environment of crossed roads, are present very much limited opportunities for its horizontal extensive growth. Such situation in the certain district limits free ground territories for seaside recreational zones and developments of the agricultural industry in the area of city councils of Baku and Sumgait, especially in districts with dense built-on and compactness of communication lines. The mentioned process is conducted outside of intensively-urbanized Baku and Sumgait and has no opportunity for using recreational zones and the ground areas. The primary purpose in this work is conducting a research of activity and interrelation of development of cities, urbanization and the migratory processes connected to it in a certain territorial system from the position of the interconnected and functional system of social and economic, economically - geographical, ecological, housing aspects.The given work which for the first time is devoted to geographical problems of development of the urbanization of cities of Azerbaijan Republic, does not reflect completely multilateral and volumetric problems in the given area.

Paper Title:

Design of Multi-Machine Power System Stabilizers using Gravitational Search Algorithm

Abstract:   Power system stabilizers (PSS) are used to generate supplementary control signals for the excitation system to damp electromechanical oscillations. This paper presents an approach based on the law of gravity and mass interactions called Gravitational Search Algorithm (GSA) fortuning the parameters of PSSs in a multi-machine power system.These stabilizers are tuned simultaneously to shift the lightly damped and undammed electromechanical modes of all plants to a prescribed zone in the s-plane. A multi objective problem is formulated to optimize a composite set of objective functions comprising the damping factor, and the damping ratio of the lightly damped electromechanical modes. The performance of the proposed PSS under different disturbances, loading conditions, and system configurations is investigated on New England 10-machine, 39-bus power system. Non-linear time domain simulation results are presented under wide range of operating conditions and disturbances at different locations to show the effectiveness of the proposed GSA based PSS and their ability to provide efficient damping of low frequency oscillations.

Paper Title:

Towards Efficient ECC Based Provable Data Possession Protocol with Data Dynamics for Secure Cloud Storage

Abstract:     Cloud Computing is acquainted for its cost-effective on-demand services based on internet. The significant benefits of cloud services drive organizations and individuals to make hay by outsourcing data to cloud storages. Outsourcing data brings users’ an easy and economical way of data management and also relieves users’ from the burden of building and maintaining local data storage. However, data being residing in some third-party’s premises, users have no full control over their data which necessitates ensuring confidentiality and integrity of data stored in untrusted cloud storage servers. To verify the correctness of data in cloud storage, this paper proposes an efficient ECC based Provable Data Possession (EPDP) Protocol with data dynamics. The proposed protocol preserves confidentiality of data stored in cloud storage and allows data owner to verify the integrity of data without retrieving the whole original data. Also the protocol is designed to perform stateless auditing and supports data dynamics at block level retaining the same security assurance. Security and Performance analysis proves the proposed protocol to be secure and highly efficient for secure cloud storage.

Chromatic Values of Intuitionistic FuzzyDirected Hypergraph Colorings

Abstract:     A hypergraph is a set V of vertices and a set E of non-empty subsets of V, called hyperedges. Unlike graphs, hypergraphs can perform higher-order interactions in social and communication networks. Directed hypergraphs are much like directed graphs. Colors are used to distinguish the classes. Coloring a hypergraph H must assign atleast two different colors to the vertices of every hyperedge. That is, no edge is monochromatic. In this paper, upper and lower truncation, core aggregate of intuitionistic fuzzy directed hypergraph (IFDHG), conservative K-coloring of IFDHG, chromatic values of intuitionistic fuzzy colorings, elementary center of intuitionistic fuzzy coloring, f-chromatic value of intuitionistic fuzzy coloring, intersecting IFDHG, K-intersecting IFDHG, strongly intersecting IFDHG were studied. Also it has been proved that IFDHG H is strongly intersecting if and only if it is K-intersecting.

Investigating Pre-Construction Planning in the Construction Industry of Kenya: Practitioners Perspective

Abstract:      The subject of pre-construction planning is central to the success of project controls and performance during the implementation of construction projects. However, projects have been failing pointing to the need to relook at the planning for projects implementation. In the construction industry of Kenya, performances challenges during projects implementation is a chronic problem. Projects do not achieve their planned cost, time and quality objectives among other performance measures. This study sought to investigate pre-construction planning in the construction industry of Kenya, with emphasis on its adequacy. This cross-sectional research adopted a mixed-method design consisting of analysis of a questionnaire survey administered to active 95No. (NCA1, NCA2 and NCA3) contractors selected by way of stratified random sampling. A similar approach was also used to select 92No.Consultants with a response rate of 54.73% and 46.73% respectively. In addition, 11No.practitioners wereinterviewed in the currentstudy. Data analysis techniques employed include descriptive statistics and thematic analysis.The study established five (5No.) issues that need to be given careful attention when planning for projects implementation. The issues in order of importance include; Clarity of Scope Statement (RII=0.896), Clarity of performance benchmarks (RII=0.865), Competency of the project team (RII=0.0.682), Clarity of roles definition (RII=0.764) and Contractors selection criteria (RII=0.726). The study concludes by compiling views of the practitioners on what they consider good practice in improving the pre-construction planning practice. The study recommends the use of the good-practice checklist developed for better projects performance.

Paper Title:

I2C Master Protocol Implementation in VHDL for Data Acquisition From CDC

Abstract:   Communication between devices plays an important role in data acquisition. Proper selection of communication method or protocols is an important task. For any process, hardware and software components are used to perform many tasks like controlling the process and actuators, data conversion, data acquisition etc. A large amount of hardware or software components cannot be used for data acquisition. A proper and efficient approach is intended to be made such that they are used in least possible numbers, also keeping in mind that the different existing devices are compatible without any major modifications. This paper presents an approach to acquire data through I2C protocol in an efficient way. The AD7746 which is capacitance to digital convertor uses I2C protocol for providing the digital data. The digitized information is acquired from the AD7746 by a FPGA which is designed using modular flow method.

Vehicle Classification Algorithm using Size and Shape

Abstract:      Automatic classification of vehicles into different classes based on their sizes and shapes is very useful for traffic control and toll collection process. Effective intelligent transportation system that incorporates vehicle classification technique is needed in many cities to prevent road accident and traffic congestion caused by illegal movement of vehicles. This work presents method of getting structural information from detected vehicle images and then uses it to classify vehicles into different classes. The technique involves extraction of contour features from vehicle images side view using morphological operations.  The extracted features were combined and used to generate feature vector that serve as input data to vehicle classification algorithm based on Euclidean distance measure.  Impressive result was achieved from the proposed vehicle classification method.

We study different types of Neural Networks, their salient features along with the internal working of these networks and the various configurations that they can be run with. We go to comment on the advantages and disadvantages of these networks. Finally we select the one network with specific configurations and use it to predict the stock prices of a few selected companies from the National Stock Index. We achieve best case accuracy of 98% on the dataset.

Paper Title:

Performance Analysis of Different Classifiers for American Sign Language Recognition

Abstract:    American Sign Language alpha-numeric character recognition without using any embedded sensor, color glove or without the constraints of an environment is a really difficult task. This paper describes a novel method of static sign recognition using a leap Motion sensor by obtaining feature set based on hand position, distance and angle between different points of hand. A feature set is later trained and tested using different classifiers like MLP (Multilayer Perceptron), GFFNN (Generalized Feed forward Neural Network), SVM (Support Vector Machine). We have collected dataset from 146 people including students of age 20-22 years and few elders age between 28-38 who have performed 32 signs resulting in total dataset of 4672 signs. Out of this 90% dataset is used for training and 10% dataset is used for testing/Cross validation. we have got maximum classification accuracy as 90% on CV/testing dataset using MLP Neural Network.
