ALGORITHM FOR COMPUTATION CHARACTERISTICS OF TELECOMMUNICATION NETWORK
WITH RESUBMITS AND INCOMPLETE CIRCUIT BUFFER MANAGEMENT MODEL.
- Ya.M. Agalarov IPI RAN, email@example.com
Abstract: Telecommunication network with SMQMA (Sharing with Maximum Queue Length and Minimum Allocation)
nodes buffer management scheme and the ability to repeat the transmission from the source and transit nodes are
discussed. The computation algorithm for average network characteristics such as probability of nodes blocking,
total load in lines, average number of packets in nodes and network, average number of packets, waiting for
repeat in sources is suggested. Proofs of statements concerning the properties of the algorithm and the results of
computational experiments are presented.

Abstract: The stability of finite location mixtures of normal distributions with respect to parameter variations of the mixing
distribution is studied. The results are stated for the models of addition and splitting of components which are used
to test statistical hypotheses about the number of mixture components.

Abstract: Effective integration of the data describing the interacting components is a key to successful management of the
entire system of operating objects. Lack of data integration can lead to significant inefficiencies of operational,
tactical, and long-term management strategies. The integrated management system can serve to overcome this
inefficiency and improve coordination and cost-effectiveness of solutions. Data Integration is no doubt the most
responsible action for the implementation of successful management strategies. An approach to the use of the
centralized repository of corporate data which allows to combine spatial and nonspatial data object descriptions is
presented. Repository is the environment for data sharing and pooling of data and software products in action.
Keywords: facilities management; data integration; GIS; repository

Abstract: Planning resource of server system of cloud computing is a challenging task. Such factors as composition and
parameters of the hardware platform, parameters of the systemsoftware thatmanages the execution of applications,
the properties of traffic generated by users and determining the modes of operation of applications should be taken
into account. Technique of estimating the server loading in open cloud computing systems is proposed. The
technique is based on the analysis of processes of user interaction with the software. Reliability of the technique is
justified. The results of modeling the load on the server side of management system simulation are presented.
Keywords: cloud computing; imitation modeling; human–computer interaction
RUSSIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES LIBRARIES TASKS AND FUNCTIONS IN MODERN CONDITIONS.
- N. E. Kalenov Library for Natural Sciences, Russian Academy of Sciences, email@example.com
Abstract: The problems of scientific libraries activities changes due to the development of network technology, the burgeoning
growth of Internet available electronic publications and databases are being considered. It is shown that academic
libraries are an integral part of the scientific infrastructure in the modern situation. The traditional tasks such
as science information support remain the prerogative of the libraries, but they must be based on new solutions
and performed with an extensive use of modern network technologies. New approaches to the traditional tasks
are illustrated on the example of Library for Natural Sciences of the Russian Academy of Sciences (LNS RAS)
(http://www.benran.ru). In addition to the traditional tasks, academic libraries are ready for new challenges in the
area of bibliometrics research, digitization of printed publication materials, etc.

UNIFICATION OF THE RULE-BASED SYSTEM LANGUAGES TO PROVIDE INTEROPERABILITY
OF DECLARATIVE PROGRAMS.

- S. A. Stupnikov IPI RAN, email@example.com
Abstract: The W3C standard RIF (Rule Interchange Format) that is provided for the interoperability of various rule based
systems by the introduction of the extensible family of unified languages (dialects) oriented on creation of semantic
preserving mappings of rule based languages of various systems into the dialects is analyzed. To characterize the
motivation for the RIF project, a short survey of development and application of rule based languages and systems
in the areas of knowledge representation, deductive databases, and logical reasoning is made. Various semantics of
logical rule based languages that influenced the RIF decisions are also analyzed. Main classes of application cases
of the interoperable rule based programs used for development of the requirements for RIF are considered. Finally,
the main decisions of the RIF project are overviewed.

COGNITIVE STUDY OF AN ASSISTIVE MULTIMODAL USER INTERFACE FOR HANDS-FREE HUMAN–COMPUTER INTERACTION.
- A.A. Karpov St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation, Russian Academy of Sciences (SPIIRAS),
Abstract: The process of research and development of a multimodal user interfaces aimed at hands-free interaction with
a personal computer by means of the natural speech input and pointing gestures/movements by user’s head is
described. The proposed interface uses a low-cost audio-visual equipment for information input and provides
an universal access to computer systems both for regular human-operators for contactless (without using hands)
personal computer control, and for handicapped users having difficulties with hand motion or even without arms.
The methods and results of quantitative evaluation of speech and performance and contactless human–computer
interaction are described and comparison with contact-based means of information input is made.
Keywords: multimodal user interface; automatic speech recognition; computer vision; cognitive research

uncertainty sources. In this paper, the results of another application are presented: to take into account wellformalized
information about errors that is classical for metrology. The principal possibility of error characteristics
representation as fuzzy variables that is compatible with metrological norms and standards has been shown.

SEMANTIC SEARCH OF NATURAL LANGUAGE INFORMATION ON THE BASIS OF KNOWLEDGE BASE TECHNOLOGY.
- M.M. Sharnin IPI RAN, firstname.lastname@example.org
- I. P. Kuznetsov IPI RAN, email@example.com
Abstract: A system for semantic search in the natural language texts is considered. The search is based on the use of a
linguistic processor which analyzes the text in natural language and extracts from it the information objects (named
entities), their signs, links, and participation in actions. As a result, the processor forms the semantic structures in
the Knowledge Base. The structure of quiries is formed by analogy. The semantic search consists in comparison
of such structures and finding the unknown objects. In the process, the connections between objects and their
participation in the actions are taken into account.
Keywords: semantic search; semantics oriented linguistic processor; knowledge extraction from texts; Knowledge
