Protein databases are growing at exponential rates as more and more sequences are being submitted to protein databases. It takes time to review these sequences, and many of them are often found to be inaccurate. It is therefore necessary to design a system that tracks and connects researchers with their submitted sequences in a secure and authentic way to mitigate risks regarding false submissions and spam. However, a more pressing need is to search these huge databases faster, as searching is the most common job performed by bioinformatics researchers during the course of their work. This book explores both these problems in detail, and offers novel solutions for both safeguarding the submission system as well as to allow faster searching of these huge protein databases.

IH 2010 was the 12th Information Hiding Conference, held in Calgary, Canada, June 28-30, 2010. This series of conferences started with the First Workshop on Information Hiding, held in Cambridge, UK in May 1996. Since then, the conference locations have alternated between Europe and North America. The conference has been held annually since 2005. For many years, information hiding has captured the imagination of - searchers. This conference series aims to bring together a number of closely related research areas, including digital watermarking, steganography and s- ganalysis, anonymity and privacy, covert and subliminal channels, ?ngerpri- ing and embedding codes, multimedia forensics and counter-forensics, as well as theoretical aspects of information hiding and detection. Since its inception, the conference series has been a premier forum for publishing research in these areas. This volume contains the revised versions of 18 accepted papers (incor- rating the comments from members of the Program Committee), and extended abstracts of two (out of three) invited talks. The conference received 39 anonymous submissions for full papers. The task of selecting 18 of them for presentation was not easy. Each submission was reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee or external - viewers reporting to a member of the Program Committee. In the case of - authorship by a Program Committee member, ?ve reviews were sought. There is no need to say that no member of the Program Committee reviewed his or her own work. Each paper was carefully discussed until consensus was reached.
We are pleased to present this collection of papers from the Second Workshop on Intelligent Memory Systems. Increasing die densities and inter chip communication costs continue to fuel interest in intelligent memory systems. Since the First Workshop on Mixing Logic and DRAM in 1997, technologies and systems for computation in memory have developed quickly. The focus of this workshop was to bring together researchers from academia and industry to discuss recent progress and future goals. The program committee selected 8 papers and 6 poster session abstracts from 29 submissions for inclusion in the workshop. Four to five members of the program committee reviewed each submission and their reviews were used to numerically rank them and guide the selection process. We believe that the resulting program is of the highest quality and interest possible. The selected papers cover a wide range of research topics such as circuit technology, processor and memory system architecture, compilers, operating systems, and applications. They also present a mix of mature projects, work in progress, and new research ideas. The workshop also included two invited talks. Dr. Subramanian Iyer (IBM Microelectronics) provided an overview of embedded memory technology and its potential. Dr. Mark Snir (IBM Research) presented the Blue Gene, an aggressive supercomputer system based on intelligent memory technology.
These are the proceedings of Eurocrypt 2004, the 23rd Annual Eurocrypt C- ference. The conference was organized by members of the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory in cooperation with IACR, the International Association for Cr- tologic Research. Theconferencereceivedarecordnumberof206submissions,outofwhichthe program committee selected 36 for presentation at the conference (three papers were withdrawn by the authors shortly after submission). These proceedings contain revised versions of the accepted papers. These revisions have not been checked for correctness, and the authors bear full responsibility for the contents of their papers. The conference program also featured two invited talks. The ?rst one was the 2004 IACR Distinguished Lecture given by Whit?eld Di?e. The second invited talk was by Ivan Damg? ard who presented "Paradigms for Multiparty Computation. " The traditional rump session with short informal talks on recent results was chaired by Arjen Lenstra. The reviewing process was a challenging task, and many good submissions had to be rejected. Each paper was reviewed independently by at least three members of the program committee, and papers co-authored by a member of the program committee were reviewed by at least six (other) members. The individual reviewing phase was followed by profound and sometimes lively d- cussions about the papers, which contributed a lot to the quality of the ?nal selection. Extensive comments were sent to the authors in most cases.
Since the Kierkegaard Studies Monograph Series (KSMS) was first published in 1997, it has served as the authoritative book series in the field. Starting from 2011 the Kierkegaard Studies Monograph Series will intensify the peer-review process with a new editorial and advisory board. KSMS is published on behalf of the Søren Kierkegaard Research Centre at the University of Copenhagen. KSMS publishes outstanding monographs in all fields of Kierkegaard research. This includes Ph.D. dissertations, Habilitation theses, conference proceedings and single author works by senior scholars. The goal of KSMS is to advance Kierkegaard studies by encouraging top-level scholarship in the field. The editorial and advisory boards are deeply committed to creating a genuinely international forum for publication which integrates the many different traditions of Kierkegaard studies and brings them into a constructive and fruitful dialogue. To this end the series publishes monographs in English and German. Potential authors should consult the Submission guidelines. All submissions will be blindly refereed by established scholars in the field. Only high-quality manuscripts will be accepted for publication. Potential authors should be prepared to make changes to their texts based on the comments received by the referees.
This volume presents the papers contributed to ?EON 2008, the 10th Int- national Conference on Deontic Logic in Computer Science, held in Fiesole (Florence), July 7 9, 2010. This biennial conference series is designed to p- mote international cooperation amongst scholars who are interested in deontic logic and its use in computer science. The scope of the conference is interd- ciplinary, it covers formal-logical studies of normative concepts and normative systems and their links with computer science, arti?cial intelligence, philosophy, organization theory, and law. This edition of ?EON invited submission on the following general themes: the logical study of normative reasoning, including formal systems of deontic logic, defeasible normative reasoning, the logic of action, and other related - eas of logic, the formal analysis of normative concepts and normative systems, the formal representation of legal knowledge, the formal speci?cation of aspects of norm-governed multi-agent systems and autonomous agents, including (but not limited to) the representation of rights, authorization, delegation, power, responsibility and liability, the formal speci?cation of normative systems for the managementofbureaucraticprocessesinpublic orprivateadministration,app- cations of normative logic to the speci?cation of database integrity constraints, normative aspects of protocols for communication, negotiation and multi-agent decision making.In particular,submissions weresolicited addressingapplication of deontic notions for modelling legal systems.
This volume contains the proceedings of the 8th International Information - curity Conference (ISC 2005), which took place in Singapore, from 20th to 23rd September 2005. ISC 2005 brought together individuals from academia and - dustry involvedin manyresearchdisciplines of information security to foster the exchange of ideas. During recent years this conference has tried to place special emphasis on the practical aspects of information security, and since it passed from being an international workshop to being an international conference in 2001, it has become one of the most relevant forums at which researchers meet and discuss emerging security challenges and solutions. Advised by the ISC Steering Committee, and in order to provide students with more opportunities for publication, ISC 2005 accepted extra student papers - sides the regular papers. The initiative was very well accepted by the young sector of the scienti?c community, and we hope that the success of this idea will remainfornextISCevents. AnotherimportantfactorforthesuccessofISC2005 was that selected papers in the proceedings will be invited for submission to a special issue of the InternationalJournalof InformationSecurity. The result was an incredible response to the call for papers, we received 271 submissions, the highest since ISC events started. It goes without saying that the paper selection process was more competitive and di?cult than ever before - only 33 regular papers were accepted, plus 5 student papers for a special student session.
The Mexican International Conference on Arti?cial Intelligence (MICAI) is a biennial conference established to promote research inarti?cial intelligence (AI), and cooperation among Mexican researchersand their peers worldwide. MICAI is organized by the Mexican Societyfor Arti?cial Intelligence (SMIA), in colla- ration with the AmericanAssociation for Arti?cial Intelligence (AAAI) and the Mexican Society for Computer Science (SMCC). After two successful conferences, we are pleased to present the 3rd Mexican InternationalConferenceonArti?cialIntelligence,MICAI2004,whichtookplace on April 26 30, 2004, in Mexico City, Mexico. This volume contains the papers included in the conferencemain program, which was complemented by tutorials and workshops, published in supplementary proceedings. The proceedings of pastMICAIconferences,2000and2002,werealsopublishedinSpringer-Verlag s Lecture Notes in Arti?cial Intelligence (LNAI) series, volumes 1793 and 2313. The number of submissions to MICAI 2004 was signi?cantly higher than those of previous conferences 254 papers from 19 di?erent countries were submitted for consideration to MICAI 2004. The evaluation of this unexpectedly largenumberofpaperswasachallenge,bothintermsofthequalityofthepapers and of the review workload of each PC member. After a thorough reviewing process, MICAI s Program Committee and Programs Chairs accepted 97 hi- quality papers. So the acceptance rate was 38.2%. CyberChair, a free Web-based paper submission and reviewing system, was used as an electronic support for the reviewing process. This book contains revised versions of the 94 papers presented at the con- rence. The volume is structured into 13 thematic ?elds according to the topics addressed by the papers, which are representative of the main current area of interest within the AI community.
