Paper Title EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT: UNLOCKING THE KEY TO ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE ORGANISATIONS
Subject Category Human Resource Management
Abstract “Engaged employees”, the foundations of profitable organizations. Employee engagement has emerged as a major area of focus in HR these days. As more and more companies work with a global workforce, Employee engagement had drawn attention and interest among employers. Employee engagement constitutes the core competence of a successful and sustainable organization. It is linked to important organizational issues like retention, productivity and satisfaction. In today’s highly volatile business scenario, one of the major challenges that corporate leaders face is sustaining high level of performance over the long term and obtaining superior business results. Despite the negative headlines of employee layoffs and cost cutting due to recessesion, organizations are still functioning. Organizations that protect their people assets will come out of this stronger and increase chances of sustaining amid volatile business conditions. Increasing pressure on organizations to retain its top-performers who contribute significantly towards organizations growth has further highlighted the role of employee engagement as a tool for retention. It is important to maintain employee morale during downturn, there is a noticeable decline in morale in the past several months. This study aims at understanding employee engagement and its importance in modern organizations. Further it analyses the strategies that can be used for employee engagement to improve workforce satisfaction and organizational performance.

Paper Title Load-Balancing Multipath Switching System With Flow Slice
Subject Category Engineering
Abstract Multipath Switching systems (MPS) are intensely used in state-of-the-art core routers to provide terabit or even petabit switching capacity. One of the most intractable issues in designing MPS is how to load balance traffic across its multiple paths while not disturbing the intraflow packet orders. Previous packet-based solutions either suffer from delay penalties or lead to hardware complexity, hence do not scale. Flow-based hashing algorithms also perform badly due to the heavy-tailed flow-size distribution. In this paper, we develop a novel scheme, namely, Flow Slice (FS) that cuts off each flow into flow slices at every intraflow interval larger than a slicing threshold and balances the load on a finer granularity. Based on the studies of tens of real Internet traces, we show that setting a slicing threshold of 1-4 ms, the FS scheme achieves comparative load-balancing performance to the optimal one. It also limits the probability of out-of-order packets to a negligible level (10−6) on three popular MPSes at the cost of little hardware complexity and an internal speedup up to two. These results are proven by theoretical analyses and also validated through trace-driven prototype simulations.

Paper Title Open Conductor Neutral Fault Detection and Mitigation Using Voltage Transformer
Subject Category Computer Science, Informatics, Electrical Engineering
Abstract Open Conductor Neutral Fault (floating wire fault) happens due to open conductor fault at source side. Neutral fault detection using voltage transformer (VT) is employed for 440 volt, 3 phase 4 wire system. This paper deals with the development of tripping circuit to detect the above fault in low cost and efficient for connected load using voltage transformer followed by Atmega 16 microcontroller. The controller has been programmed using Micro C AVR software which reduce tripping time than analog base tripping circuit. The voltage transformer measures voltage during fault and measured voltage signal sent to rectifier. Then rectifier sends the converted DC signal to the microcontroller. Microcontroller compares that signal with reference value and send tripping signal in the form of binary one or zero to contactor.

Paper Title AN OPERATIONAL APPROACH FOR SECURING A NODE WITHIN A CLOUD SERVICE INFRASTRUCTURE
Subject Category Cloud Computing
Abstract The growing trend in migrating systems to use Cloud infrastructure to take advantage of the cost savings and flexibility that this form of IT provision can offer has caused concern within the security community, because this virtual and dynamic environment creates a new threat landscape. This paper takes a technical approach to securing a node within a Cloud service infrastructure, however, there are a number of other considerations, primarily legal and procedural that should be taken into account when selecting a Cloud provider. The methodology, results, challenges and recommended mitigations are detailed in this paper, which sets out best practices for securing Cloud nodes as a client and will help clients to assess and reduce any associated risk to their systems. Information about the general security issues discovered in actual Cloud nodes has also been fed back to the providers to enable them to resolve these issues. Management of nodes should be done via a secure mechanism. The majority of providers use a web-based application or an API to manage nodes. These management methods should have undergone independent security assessments which should be available to clients on request. In addition, to regular security reviews, the use of two-factor authentication to the management interfaces is recommended.

Paper Title Power Efficient Multicasting Algorithms for Wireless Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Subject Category Adhoc networks
Abstract In contrast to traditional cellular wireless networks, power capacity becomes a very constrained and precious resource for ad hoc networks. Many nodes may be powered by batteries with limited lifetime, some of which may not even be rechargeable. For those power-constrained networks, an important issue in routing and multicasting now is to conserve as much power as possible while still achieving good link quality. However, research on multicasting with power control is mostly overlooked. How a multicast routing algorithm can be designed to integrate with power control mechanism therefore becomes our research interest. In this paper, taking mobility into account, a separate distributed tree maintenance algorithm is presented, which consists of two phases: power tuning phase and tree break repair phase. This tree maintenance algorithm can be combined with any of the power efficient tree-forming algorithms proposed before to reduce the number of link breaks effectively and repair the tree link breaks timely, while still conserving power consumption efficiently.

Paper Title Observing the Power-driven performance of bridge comportments of concrete bridges
Subject Category CIVIL ENGINEERING
Abstract In this paper the loads caused by traffic & temperature are considered. The traffic loads follow from a fatigue load model with 12 types of trucks, based on the Standard for traffic loads and measurements of traffic on the bridge. For both types of (static) loadings the forces, displacements, rotations and slide paths, which occur during the lifetime of the different bridge bearings, are determined for each bearing. From the comparison of the tests and the model results and an extensive analysis of the model. It has been observed that the relation between the values of the slide path in the tests and the time are not clear (it could be 1 year or 10 to 25 year, the lifetime of a bearing). A large number of values which are determined with the aid of the finite element model match in terms of magnitude with the values in the tests. For the real development of the horizontal forces on bearings and related with that, the contact surface of the guides of a bearing, further research will be required. Distances between trucks and the numbers of trucks at the same time on the bridge will have a big influence on the slide path of a bridge bearing

Paper Title Energy Efficient-Power Aware Routing Algorithm For Integrated Energy Efficiency With Power Awareness Parameters For Routing Of Packets
Subject Category Computer Sciences
Abstract An energy efficient routing protocol balances node energy utilization to reduce energy consumption and increase the life of nodes thus increasing the network lifetime, reducing the routing delay and increasing the reliability of the packets reaching the destination. Wireless networks do not have any fixed communication infrastructure. For an active connection the end host as well as the intermediate nodes can be mobile. Therefore routes are subject to frequent disconnection. In such an environment it is important to minimize disruptions caused by changing topology for applications using voice and video. The Energy Efficient, Power Aware Routing protocol significantly reduces the total number of route request packets, this result in an increased packet delivery ratio, decreasing end- to-end delays for the data packets, lower control overhead, fewer collisions of packets, supporting reliability and decreasing power consumption. Each route request carries the cumulative cost, so very little bit overhead is increased to carry the cumulative cost but it is negligible. In this paper we discussed the need to make routing protocols energy efficient and power-aware. We proposed a methodology of routing protocol for misbehaving network with a power management scheme protocol, and to improve routing protocol performance by using mobility prediction. The protocol used here enables nodes to detect misbehavior by observing the status of the nodes.

Paper Title ESA AS A SIGNIFICANT TOOL FOR INTENSIFICATION OF STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS OF PIPE SYSTEMS
Subject Category ENGINEERING
Abstract Complex mechanical systems intended for gas transport are formed by complicated technological piping units. Their main components are gas pipelines, compressor stations, connection and distribution nodes, etc. As a part of their operation, monitoring but especially within long-term intensification of their technical competence, it is necessary to solve a variety of complex technical problems. These are mainly related to monitoring and prediction of lifespan of critical system elements, then also to monitoring corrosion damaged pipeline and related repairs and eventually to rectification of older bridges and other temporary or unsatisfactory technical solutions. Important interacting negative factors in the process are gradual degradation of used material, presence of residual stresses, etc. Solving these problems is unthinkable without active application of experimental modeling, relevant experimental methods and corresponding hardware and software. This mainly includes means of modal analysis and analysis of deformation and mechanical stresses.
