Program code compression is an emerging research activity that is having an impact in several production areas such as networking and embedded systems. This is because the reduced-sized code can have a positive impact on network traffic and embedded...

Metaheuristics in combinatorial optimization: Overview and conceptual comparison
Andrea Roli, Christian Blum
Pages: 268-308
DOI: 10.1145/937503.937505
The field of metaheuristics for the application to combinatorial optimization problems is a rapidly growing field of research. This is due to the importance of combinatorial optimization problems for the scientific as well as the industrial world. We...

A survey of key management for secure group communication
Sandro Rafaeli, David Hutchison
Pages: 309-329
DOI: 10.1145/937503.937506
Group communication can benefit from IP multicast to achieve scalable exchange of messages. However, there is a challenge of effectively controlling access to the transmitted data. IP multicast by itself does not provide any mechanisms for preventing...
