Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of NAUN Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

Title of the Paper: Contemporary Perception Of Task Scheduling Techniques In Cloud: A Review


Authors: Samah Alshathri

Pages: 7-11

Abstract: Typically, the constant changes in computers and communications technology led to the need of on-demand network access to a shared computing resources to reduce cost and time and this is known as Cloud computing, which delivers computing services to users as a pay-as-you-go manner by emerging several distributed and high performance computing concepts. The cloud makes reaching any information or source possible from anywhere eliminating the setup and instillation step such that the user and the hardware may co-exist in different places. This comes beneficial for the users or the small companies that cannot effort to pay for the hardware, storage or resources as the big companies. Many of the studies on cloud computing was dedicated to the performance efficiency of task scheduling. Scheduling is a wide concept and it is one of the most important issues that generally work on mapping tasks to appropriate resources efficiently and effectively using one or more strategy. This paper have reviewed and classified the most recent scheduling algorithms in cloud computing and gave examples on each.

Title of the Paper: Mathematical Modeling of Optimal Node Deployment for Indoor Wireless Sensor Networks


Authors: Lial Raja Missif, Mohammad M. Kadhum

Pages: 1-6

Abstract: Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has been utilized in environmental monitoring where large number of connected sensor nodes collaboratively sense and report conditions of the monitoring area. Indoor event sensing and tracking is one of WSN applications that has a significant effect on saving cost economically and humanitarianly. Efficient sensor node deployment can ensure coverage, connectivity, and stability of the network. This paper presents the mathematical modeling of a node deployment for indoor wireless sensor networks where the optimal number of nodes required to satisfy the coverage of the indoor area and network connectivity requirements is determined. The proposed solution contributes to the reduction in the cost and maintenance of the network as less number of sensors is needed, compared to the traditional grid node deployment.
