Allocation and management of the resource is very important in wireless networks because the wireless resource is limited. Therefore, the importance of designing cross layer, which adapt between different layers, is on the rise. In this paper, we investigate the scheduling techniques of the cross layer. This paper researches conventional scheduling methods and proposes the complementary scheduling method. On multimedia environment, the scheduling method must be applied variably because of offering variable services. Therefore, this paper proposes the new scheduling method according to the variable services. The proposed method shows that utility efficiency of the wireless resource more excellent than the conventional method through the simulations.

Since collaborative filtering has used the nearest-neighborhood method based on item preference it cannot only reflect exact contents but also has the problem of sparsity and scalability. The item-based collaborative filtering has been practically used improve these problems. However it still does not reflect attributes of the item. In this paper, we propose the method of associative group using the FP-Tree to solve the problem of existing recommendation system. The proposed makes frequent item and creates association rule by using FP-Tree without occurrence of candidate set. We made the efficient item group using
according to the confidence of the association rule. To estimate the performance, the suggested method is compared with Gibbs Sampling, Expectation Maximization, and K-means in the MovieLens dataset.

Radio Frequency Identification(RFID) technology is set to play an essential role in object tracking or supply chain management systems. New challenges for RFID data management are needed in the RFID applications. RFID data are generated quickly and automatically, and can be used for object tracking, or for real-time monitoring. These applications are mostly associated with the timestamps when the events happen. In this paper, we propose a temporal RFID data model to maintain the history of events and state changes and to monitor the states of RFID objects. Also we propose data filtering method of non active data based on temporal RFID data model. This data model involves essential basic operations for RFID data. We show increased query performance through the data filtering method of non active data.

This study examined the analyses of students and teachers' perceptions on learning style in IBL. This study analyzed 386 elementary school (ES) and 627 middle school (MS) students and 130 cyber teachers how they perceived learning styles in IBL. They filled out the 15 items questionnaire about three different learning styles (self-directed preference style, cooperative preference style, and dependent style) in IBL, and were compared their perceptions in terms of students comparisons (ES vs. MS) and students and teachers comparisons. The results showed that the students and teachers preferred the self-directed preference learning style rather than cooperative preference style and dependent styles. However, the teachers judged the students more likely self-directed and dependent style than the students judged themselves. Also, there were statistically significant differences between ES and MS students on the dependent learning style and ES and MS teachers as well. In conclusion, this study suggests the different design and development strategies in IBL contents for ES and MS students preferred teaming styles. Tutoring strategies for cyber teachers should be also developed to understand learners' different loaming styles in IBL.

Typography in Epistemological Change of Letter Concept
Ahn, Byung-Hak ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 7, issue 10, 2007, Pages 146~156
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2007.7.10.146
This study is possible because, first, "rammatology" and typography are connected by language. Second, I believe that language in typography should be comprehended in a relationship between peripheral studies such as history, philosophy, literature, and linguistics. Finally, "grammatology" is an excellent subject for experiments which attempt to rehabilitate the right of language, which is dependent on sound within the metaphysical boundary. This study is formed on the idea that the study of typography should be based on language, which is the basic foundation, and that this is possible in investigations related to peripheral studies. The main purpose of typography is an accurate delivery of meaning. However, the dynamics of creative thoughts towards advancement mainly depends on experiment, thus we cannot limit the purpose of typography as a means of communication to exchange meanings. For these reasons, I admit that interest in peripheral studies -which are not yet approached in the study on typography -take precedence.
