  Title Measuring software functional size from business process models Type Journal Article
  Year 2011 Publication International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Vol. 21 Issue Pages pp. 311–338  
  Keywords  
  Abstract ISO 14143-1 specifies that a functional size measurement (FSM) method must provide measurement procedures to quantify the functional user requirements (FURs) of software. Such quantitative information, functional size, is typically used, for instance, in software estimation. One of the international standards for FSM is the COSMIC FSM method — ISO 19761 — which was designed to be applied both to the business application (BA) software domain and to the real-time software domain. A recurrent problem in FSM is the availability and quality of the inputs required for measurement purposes; that is, well documented FURs. Business process (BP) models, as they are commonly used to gather requirements from the early stages of a project, could be a valuable source of information for FSM. In a previous article, the feasibility of such an approach for the BA domain was analyzed using the Qualigram BP modeling notation. This paper complements that work by: (1) analyzing the use of BPMN for FSM in the BA domain; (2) presenting notation-independent guidelines for the BA domain; and (3) analyzing the possibility of using BP models to perform FSM in the real-time domain. The measurement results obtained from BP models are compared with those of previous FSM case studies.

  Title A Proximity-Aware Transparent Handoff Mobility Scheme for VoIP Communication over Infrastructure Mesh Networks Type Conference Article
  Year 2011 Publication International Congress of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering-INTERCON 2011 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Wireless Mesh Networks; Quality of Service; Mobility Management; Voice over IP.  
  Abstract Mobility Management plays a key role in Voice-over- IP (VoIP) communications over Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) as clients should maintain adequate levels of Quality of Service (QoS) as they move across the network. This paper presents PATH, a Proximity-Aware Transparent Handoff mobility scheme for real time voice communications over wireless mesh networks. Our study focuses on Medium Access Control (MAC) layer procedures and relies on gratuitous ARP unicasting in order to provide fast-handoffs. An experimental evaluation has been conducted and its results are shown in this paper.

  Title DARE: Adaptive Data Replication for Efficient Cluster Scheduling Type Conference Article
  Year 2011 Publication IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing, 2011 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 159 - 168  
  Keywords MapReduce, replication, scheduling, locality  
  Abstract Placing data as close as possible to computation is a common practice of data intensive systems, commonly referred to as the data locality problem. By analyzing existing production systems, we confirm the benefit of data locality and find that data have different popularity and varying correlation of accesses. We propose DARE, a distributed adaptive data replication algorithm that aids the scheduler to achieve better data locality. DARE solves two problems, how many replicas to allocate for each file and where to place them, using probabilistic sampling and a competitive aging algorithm independently at each node. It takes advantage of existing remote data accesses in the system and incurs no extra network usage. Using two mixed workload traces from Facebook, we show that DARE improves data locality by more than 7 times with the FIFO scheduler in Hadoop and achieves more than 85% data locality for the FAIR scheduler with delay scheduling. Turnaround time and job slowdown are reduced by 19% and 25%, respectively.

  Title Wide-Band Color Imagery Restoration for RGB-NIR Single Sensor Image. Sensors 2018 ,2059. Type Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Vol. 18 Issue Issue 7 Pages  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Multi-spectral RGB-NIR sensors have become ubiquitous in recent years. These sensors allow the visible and near-infrared spectral bands of a given scene to be captured at the same time. With such cameras, the acquired imagery has a compromised RGB color representation due to near-infrared bands (700–1100 nm) cross-talking with the visible bands (400–700 nm). This paper proposes two deep learning-based architectures to recover the full RGB color images, thus removing the NIR information from the visible bands. The proposed approaches directly restore the high-resolution RGB image by means of convolutional neural networks. They are evaluated with several outdoor images; both architectures reach a similar performance when evaluated in different scenarios and using different similarity metrics. Both of them improve the state of the art approaches.

  Title Cross-spectral image dehaze through a dense stacked conditional GAN based approach. Type Conference Article
  Year 2018 Publication 14th IEEE International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet based Systems (SITIS 2018) Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 358-364  
  Keywords  
  Abstract This paper proposes a novel approach to remove haze from RGB images using a near infrared images based on a dense stacked conditional Generative Adversarial Network (CGAN). The architecture of the deep network implemented receives, besides the images with haze, its corresponding image in the near infrared spectrum, which serve to accelerate the learning process of the details of the characteristics of the images. The model uses a triplet layer that allows the independence learning of each channel of the visible spectrum image to remove the haze on each color channel separately. A multiple loss function scheme is proposed, which ensures balanced learning between the colors and the structure of the images. Experimental results have shown that the proposed method effectively removes the haze from the images. Additionally, the proposed approach is compared with a state of the art approach showing better results.

  Volume 1 Issue Pages 545 -550  
  Keywords Infrared Imaging, Feature Point Descriptors  
  Abstract This paper presents a comparative evaluation of classical feature point descriptors when they are used in the long-wave infrared spectral band. Robustness to changes in rotation, scaling, blur, and additive noise are evaluated using a state of the art framework. Statistical results using an outdoor image data set are presented together with a discussion about the differences with respect to the results obtained when images from the visible spectrum are considered.
