Abstract — Open Source Software development (OSSD) is unlike traditional software development in many aspects. Requirements elicitation is the most critical phase in software development as it is the basis for developing software. The requirements elicitation phase in OSSD is different from traditional software development process and somehow a difficult process as the developer is the only person that has to elicit the requirements and then make the software open for review from the user community. The users can add or modify the product according to their own needs and requirements. The focus of this paper is on the requirements elicitation phase and elicitation techniques for open source software development. In this paper, requirements elicitation phase model for OSSD is proposed as well as best suited requirements elicitation techniques for OSSD are discussed and a framework for choosing and comparing these techniques is developed and the selected techniques for OSS are analyzed in the context of the criteria mentioned in the framework. A formula is proposed using the framework and the proposed model for the requirements elicitation process and selection of techniques for OSSD.

Abstract — Internet crimes are now increasing. In a row with many crimes using information technology, in particular those using Internet, some crimes are often carried out in the form of attacks that occur within a particular agency or institution. To be able to find and identify the types of attacks, requires a long process that requires time, human resources and utilization of information technology to solve these problems. The process of identifying attacks that happened also needs the support of both hardware and software as well. The attack happened in the Internet network can generally be stored in a log file that has a specific data format. Clustering technique is one of methods that can be used to facilitate the identification process. Having grouped the data log file using K-means clustering technique, then the data is grouped into three categories of attack, and will be continued with the forensic process that can later be known to the source and target of attacks that exist in the network. It is concluded that the framework proposed can help the investigator in the trial process.

Abstract — The Semantic Web is an extended to the current web where web resources can be manipulated and processed intelligently. User query is semantically analyzed and respond to in intelligent way. A set of technologies are developed to serve this requirement, including Resource Description Framework (RDF), Schema RDF and Web Ontology Language (OWL). Java Agent Development Framework (JADE) is a software framework to make easy the development of multi agent applications in compliance with The Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA) specifications. Several approaches for building knowledge model for JADE agent can be found. The most promising approach is using OWL ontology based knowledge representation which is one of the main standards for the Semantic Web proposed by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and it is based on description logic. Representing knowledge based on ontology provides many benefits over other representations. The other traditional approach is using conventional rule engine (normally production rule engine). Jess is a familiar rule engine and scripting environment written entirely in Sun’s java language. Jess gives the capability for building Knowledge in the form of declarative rules and facts, and reason about it. Also Jess can be integrated efficiently with a JADE agent. In this paper, A comparative study is held between the above two approaches. An example is implemented to show the tools and steps required in each way and to show the expressivity power of the ontology based over the traditional one.

Abstract — This paper presents a predictive control strategy based on neural network model of the plant is applied to Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR). This system is a highly nonlinear process; therefore, a nonlinear predictive method, e.g., neural network predictive control, can be a better match to govern the system dynamics. In the paper, the NN model and the way in which it can be used to predict the behavior of the CSTR process over a certain prediction horizon are described, and some comments about the optimization procedure are made. Predictive control algorithm is applied to control the concentration in a continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR), whose parameters are optimally determined by solving quadratic performance index using the optimization algorithm. An efficient control of the product concentration in CSTR can be achieved only through accurate model. Here an attempt is made to alleviate the modeling difficulties using Artificial Intelligent technique such as Neural Network. Simulation results demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the NNMPC technique.

Abstract 0- Animal diseases have constituted a major problem in many developing and developed countries. There are different limitations for the existing computer systems to meet the required information and analytical capabilities for a better decision in the Egyptian animal production domain. This paper presents an approach for helping policy/decision makers to improve animal production in Egypt. The paper integrates Online Analytical Processing (OLAP), Geographical Information System (GIS), Spatial Analysis functions and Multicriteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) capabilities to develop a Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS). The main aim of this study is to generate a composite map for decision makers by using some effective factors affect animal production in Egypt. We visualize and analyze different factors such as "Diseases", "Climate", "Soil Pollution", "Veterinary care" and "Economical factors" which affect the animal production in Egypt. The paper takes in consideration influence of each factor because importance and influence of each factor differs according policy/decision makers point of view.

Abstract— there is a tremendous need by governments around the world to take advantage of the information revolution particularly the field of Enterprise resource planning and E-government in ordered to attain the optimum method of recourses investment. Traditionally e-government development is organized in to different phases (requirements, analysis, design, implementation, testing and maintenance). To assess whether e-government models we implementing meets all different user requirements in order to increase user performance. E-government model with a large diversity of users suffer from failures to satisfy heterogeneous requirements. A solution for this damaging situation is by deeply and in detail studying and analyzing user satisfaction factors. The future development try to avoid such unsatisfied factors which disturb user and minimized there performance. E-government is considered as hot topic tackled by many researchers as it is considered as future fact especially for the developing countries. This research introduces a case study: Analytical study to Measure Employee satisfaction in Jordan e-government applications: E- Diwan Project- in prime minister office in Jordan.

Abstract - Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a technology that employs basic identifier of an object embedded in a chip, transmitted via radio wave, for identification. An RFID Card responds to query/interrogation irrespective of ‘Who’ holds the Card; like a key to a door. Since an attacker can possess the card, access to such object can therefore be easily compromised. This security breach is classified as an unauthorized use of Card, and it forms the bedrock for RFID Card compromise especially in access control. As an on-card authentication mechanism, this research proposed a concept termed Bio-thentic Card, which can be adopted to prevent this single point of failure of RFID Card. The Bio-thentic Card was fabricated, tested and assessed in line with the known threats, and attacks; and it was observed to proffer substantive solution to unauthorized use of RFID Card vulnerability.
