Faculty members from the Department of Computer Science of Ateneo de Naga University will present their papers in the 10th National Conference on Information Technology Education (NCITE 2012) organized by the Philippine Society of Information Technology Educators. The event will be held at Laoag, Ilocos Norte on 18 to 20 October 2012.
The following papers from the AdNU participants are as follows:
Bernie Jereza and Allan Sioson, MyADNU, An Enterprise Information Portal for the Academic Community of the Ateneo de Naga University [ Abstract: myADNU is an on-line portal that provides the Ateneo de Naga University Community access to its enterprise information. It features a decentralized content contribution system. Where content includes, university announcements, events information, and memoranda. In myADNU, students are provided access to their course grades, class schedules, and financial account information while teachers are provided access to their class schedules and class lists. Through myADNU, teachers may also submit the grades of their students online. ]
Lowie Vincent Bisana and Rey Herman Vidallo, Cloud Computing Infrastructure Services Implemented Using OpenStack Technology In Linux Platform [ Abstract: Cloud Computing is the newest technology in computer networks. This is possible through the development of virtualization and the high speed internet access technologies. Open source software like OpenStack is now released in the market and is becoming the standard in this field. This implementation uses the OpenStack technology as an architecture which runs a built-in authentication method and a cluster of virtual storage in the cloud. This paper presents a step-by-step procedure on how to set up a cloud computing technology. It includes the creation of simplified commands for the network connection service in a Linux platform and the implementation of command-line applications for: verification and authentication, uploading and downloading and other file storage secure services. ]
Carol Llorente and Allan Sioson, VSeaR: Video Search and Retrieval Through Haar Wavelet Analysis [ Abstract: VSeaR is an online content-based video retrieval system implemented using Haar wavelet decomposition algorithm. Content-based video retrieval is a conceptual extension of content-based image retrieval (CBIR) into video domain. Video retrieval in VSeaR is divided into two levels, feature extraction and video querying. Feature extraction involves the selection of the median frames of a video and subjecting it to Haar wavelet decomposition to obtain its wavelet coefficients. These wavelet coefficients comprised the video`s unique signature. Video querying involves the processing of the query video using the same process of feature extraction and the application of distance metric to compare the query video`s signature to those signature in the database. Numerical analysis will be used between these coefficients for each pair of video to get their similarity level. The video database contains pre-processed videos which went through the feature extraction process. ]
Jonathan Casano and Allan Sioson, An Investigation on Reaction-Diffusion-Based Mazes [ Abstract: In this work, we investigate the RD based maze generation algorithm of Wan et al. The algorithm starts with any image with enough detail and produces a maze-like image which preserves the prominent features of the input image. As a proof of concept, we developed an application where users can specify two points that defines a path. The application is largely based on the algorithm of Wan et al. and is subjected to a set of test input images. The application is developed in C++ using the OpenCV library. ]
