"Data Modelling and Retrieval in Web and Wireless Network"

Eric Pardede, Guest Editor, La Trobe University, Australia
David Taniar, Guest Editor, Monash University, Australia

This issue consists of two extended articles from two international
conferences: The 3rd International Conference on Advances in Mobile
Multimedia (MoMM 2005) and the 7th International Conference on
Information Integration and Web-Based Applications and Services (iiWAS
2005). Both conferences were held in September 2005 in Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia. The conferences attracted articles from academics and
researchers from all over the world. The joint event was a great
success and attracted the highest number of participants in the
history of International Organization for Information Integration and
Web-Based Applications & Services (@WAS). In addition, the guest
editors reviewed and accepted three additional articles from among the
regular submissions to the editors of the IJITWE.



"eDAR Algorithm for Continuous KNN Queries Based on Pine"

Maytham Safar, Kuwait University, Kuwait
Dariush Ebrahimi, Kuwait University, Kuwait

The continuous K nearest neighbor (CKNN) query is an important type of
query that continuously finds the KNN to a query point on a given
path. This article focuses on moving queries issued on stationary
objects in spatial network database (SNDB). The result of this type of
query is a set of intervals (defined by split points) and their
corresponding KNNs. This means that the KNN of an object travelling on
one interval of the path remains the same all through that interval
until it reaches a split point where its KNNs change. Existing methods
for CKNN are based on Euclidean distances. In this article, a new
algorithm is proposed for answering CKNN in SNDB where the important
measure for the shortest path is network distances rather than
Euclidean distances. DAR and eDAR algorithms are proposed to address
CKNN queries based on the progressive incremental network expansion
(PINE) technique. The experiments show that the eDAR approach has
better response time, and requires fewer shortest distance
computations and KNN queries than approaches that are based on VN3
using IE.

"Text Summarization Based on Conceptual Data Classification"

H. Saleh, University of Qatar, Qatar
F. Abdullah, University of Qatar, Qatar
H. Cherif, University of Qatar, Qatar

This article presents an original approach for text summarization
using conceptual data classification. The authors show how a given
text can be summarized without losing meaningful knowledge and without
using any semantic or grammatical concepts. In fact, concept date
classification is used to extract the most interacting sentences from
the main text and ignoring the other meaningless sentences in order to
generate the text summary. The approach is tested on Arabic and
English texts with different sizes and different topics and the
obtained results are satisfactory. The system may be incorporated with
the indexers of search engines over the Internet in order to find key
words and other pertinent information of the new deployed Web pages
that would be stored in databases for quick search.

"A Prediction-Based Flexible Channel Assignment in Wireless Networks
Using Road Topology Information"

G. Sivaradje, Pondicehrry Engineering College, India
R. Nakkeeran, Pondicehrry Engineering College, India
P. Dananjayan, Pondicehrry Engineering College, India

This article proposes a novel prediction technique which uses road
topology information for prediction. The proposed scheme uses
real-time positioning information and road topology information, which
matches with the real environment. The scheme uses flexible channel
assignment to maintain a better tradeoff between forced termination
and call blocking probabilities. For reservation of resources in
advance, the information about future handoffs is obtained from the
road topology prediction technique. To show the effectiveness of the
prediction scheme and flexible channel assignment scheme, this work
aims at simulation of other channel assignment strategies­fixed and
dynamic channel assignment strategy with and without incorporating the
prediction based on road topology information. It gives accurate
prediction results, which helps to maintain a better QoS and resource

"A Deterministic Approach to XML Query Processing with Efficient
Support for Pure and Negated Containments"

Dunren Che, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, USA

This article reports the result of the author's recent work on XML
query processing/optimization, which is a very important issue in XML
data management. In this work, in order to more effectively and
efficiently handle XML queries involving pure and/or negated
containments, a previously proposed deterministic optimization
approach is largely adapted. This approach resorts to heuristic-based
deterministic transformations on algebraic query expressions in order
to achieve the best possible optimization efficiency. Specialized
transformation rules are thus developed, and efficient implementation
algorithms for pure and negated containments are presented as well.
Experimental study confirms the validity and effectiveness of the
presented approach and algorithms in processing of XML queries
involving pure and/or negated containments.

"Web Data Warehousing Convergence: From Schematic to Systematic"

D. Xuan Le, La Trobe University, Australia
J. Wenny Rahayu, La Trobe University, Australia
David Taniar, Monash University, Australia

This article proposes a data warehouse integration technique that
combines data and documents from different underlying documents and
database design approaches. The well-defined and structured data such
as relational, object-oriented and object relational data,
semi-structured data such as XML, and unstructured data such as HTML
documents are integrated into a Web data warehouse system. The user
specified requirements and data sources are combined to assist with
the definitions of the hierarchical structures, which serve specific
requirements and represent a certain type of data semantics using
object-oriented features including inheritance, aggregation,
association, and collection. A conceptual integrated data warehouse
model is then specified based on a combination of user requirements
and data source structure, which creates the need for a logical
integrated data warehouse model. A case study is then developed into a
prototype in a Web-based environment that enables the evaluation. The
evaluation of the proposed integration Web data warehouse methodology
includes the verification of correctness of the integrated data, and
the overall benefits of utilizing this proposed integration technique.

Mission of IJITWE:

The main objective of the journal is to publish refereed papers in the
area covering Information Technology (IT) concepts, tools,
methodologies, and ethnography, in the contexts of global
communication systems and Web engineered applications. In accordance
with this emphasis on the Web and communication systems, the journal
publishes papers on IT research and practice that support seamless
end-to-end information and knowledge flow among individuals, teams,
and organizations. This end-to-end strategy for research and practice
requires emphasis on integrated research among the various steps
involved in data/knowledge (structured and unstructured) capture
(manual or automated), classification and clustering, storage,
analysis, synthesis, dissemination, display, consumption, and
feedback. The secondary objective is to assist in the evolving and
maturing of IT-dependent organizations, as well as individuals, in
information and knowledge based culture and commerce, including
