Cognitive Communications Book Excerpt:

This book discusses in-depth the concept of distributed artificial intelligence (DAI) and its application to cognitive communications In this book, the authors present an overview of cognitive communications, encompassing both cognitive radio and cognitive networks, and also other application areas such as cognitive acoustics. The book also explains the specific rationale for the integration of different forms of distributed artificial intelligence into cognitive communications, something which is often neglected in many forms of technical contributions available today. Furthermore, the chapters are divided into four disciplines: wireless communications, distributed artificial intelligence, regulatory policy and economics and implementation. The book contains contributions from leading experts (academia and industry) in the field. Key Features: Covers the broader field of cognitive communications as a whole, addressing application to communication systems in general (e.g. cognitive acoustics and Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI) Illustrates how different DAI based techniques can be used to self-organise the radio spectrum Explores the regulatory, policy and economic issues of cognitive communications in the context of secondary spectrum access Discusses application and implementation of cognitive communications techniques in different application areas (e.g. Cognitive Femtocell Networks (CFN) Written by experts in the field from both academia and industry Cognitive Communications will be an invaluable guide for research community (PhD students, researchers) in the areas of wireless communications, and development engineers involved in the design and development of mobile, portable and fixed wireless systems., wireless network design engineer. Undergraduate and postgraduate students on elective courses in electronic engineering or computer science, and the research and engineering community will also find this book of interest.

Bioinformatics Research and Development Book Excerpt:

This volume contains the papers which were selected for presentation at the second Bio- formatics Research and Development (BIRD) conference held in Vienna, Austria during July 7–9, 2008. BIRD covers a wide range of topics related to bioinformatics. This year sequence analysis and alignment, pathways, networks, systems biology, protein and RNA structure and function, gene expression/regulation and microarrays, databases and data integration, machine learning and data analysis were the subjects of main interest. The decisions of the Program Committee are based on the recommendations of at least three, up to five, reviews for each paper. As a result, 30 of the 61 submitted c- tributions could be accepted for the conference. We were happy to have three invited talks presented by experienced researchers providing visitors with a good overview but also some very important insights into the fascinating domain of bioinformatics. Abstracts and more information on these talks are provided in the conference program as well as at the conference site. In the second part of this volume the selected contributions of the two workshops which were held in parallel to the main conference are presented: Workshop on - namical Aspects of Perturbation, Intervention and Transition in Biological Systems – PETRIN 2008 and Workshop on Algorithms in Molecular Biology – ALBIO 2008 Poster presentations of the BIRD conference are in the companion proceedings published by the Trauner Verlag, Linz.

Investigating Human Cancer with Computational Intelligence Techniques Book Excerpt:

Human cancer is at an important frontier of medical research, and one where Computational Intelligence methods have made substantial inroads in recent years. Computational Intelligence research in cancer now reaches all biological scales from human population down to the phenotype and genotype. It is also fair to say that it reaches the complete range of cancer pathologies. This book does not aim to achieve such completeness of coverage. Instead, the studies included in it should provide readers with a broad palette and a hopefully useful taster of what Computational Intelligence methods can achieve in the field. This volume contains an overview of the field and a collection of eight leading-edge studies from research teams composed of experts in the field on various aspects of the subject.
