Title: Frequency domain correlation filters for object and  face recognition

Abstract: While there have been varying and significant levels of performance achieved through the use of spatial 2D image data, the use of a frequency domain representation sometimes achieves better performance for many recognition tasks. The use of the Fourier transforms allow to quickly and easily obtain raw frequency data which are significantly more discriminating (after appropriate data manipulation) than the raw spatial data, from which it is derived. In the majority of cases, correlation  filters are used to achieve desired performances due to...

Title: Publishing Ethics and Author Services

Abstract: The importance of research publishing can be defined by a simple quote of Gerard Piel, which says “Without publication, science is dead.” The first scientific journal was published in 1665 and we have travelled 350 years since then. In the last 20 years, science and reporting of science have undergone revolutionary changes. Computerization and Internet have changed the traditional ways of reading and writing. Hence, it is very important for scientists and students of the sciences in...

Title: Model Checking using Goal Models 

Abstract: Goal Modelling techniques are typically used to identify and detect errors, conflicts, or issues that may arise in the later phases of the life cycle. Early detection of errors between project goals helps in reducing the cost to a great extent. In our efforts to assess the advantages of applying model checking on goal models, we have used i* framework and developed the i*ToNuSMV tool.
The i* is one of the most complex multi-agent modelling frameworks. We have used it for requirements engineering. Actors and inter-dependencies between the Actors are said to be intentional for the i* framework. The i*ToNuSMV tool acts as a POC for the...
