Haigazian University is a higher education institution founded in 1955 in Beirut, Lebanon. It offers programs leading to Bachelor's degrees in the Arts and science as well as Business Administration and Economics, in addition to Master's degrees in the Arts, science and Business Administration. All degrees from Haigazian are recognized by the Lebanese government and the Association of International Colleges and Universities. It is supported by the Armenian Evangelical community, and was established primarily to meet the needs of the large Lebanese-Armenian population. However, the university is open to all students, regardless of race, nationality, or creed, and has professors and student body from all sections of Lebanese society. Wikipedia.

Traffic direction systems in addition to other Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are becoming more popular every day. Applications like Yahoo maps, MapQuest, and Google Earth are online examples of such systems designed to help users locate their destinations or reach it. The need of Vehicles Global Positioning Systems (GPS) is also increasing. Calculating the best driving path (shorter in distance or faster in time) between two addresses is subject to many factors like distances, road situation, road traffic, road legal rules and others. Knowing whether we can make it to our destination on time is also a hard question and subject to additional factors like car situation, arrival time, moving time, traffic at destination, and others. In this paper we present our smart system STOS, which uses an intelligent algorithm and intelligent graph structure. We also extend STOS and use it with uncertainty factors that may affect our trip to give a logical answer of whether we can reach our destination on time. © 2012 Infonomics Society. Source

Guidance and driving direction traffic systems are being used increasingly and becoming popular more among Geographical Information Systems. Yahoo maps, MapQuest, and Google Earth are examples of online Internet applications. Vehicles navigation systems are also very popular examples. Calculating the best driving path (shorter in distance or faster in time) between two addresses is subject to many factors like distances, road situation, road traffic, road legal rules and others. STOS (Smart Traffic Online System), our previous work, presents an intelligent solution for finding a fast path between addresses using smart algorithms. However, STOS does not recognize the delays caused by traffic legal rules and laws like traffic lights, stop signs, and others. This paper presents the driving traffic problem, factors affecting the problem, and previous solutions. We extend our previous smart solution, STOS, by adding the traffic legal rules delays. © 2011 WorldCIS. Source

Web services have emerged as a new Web-based technology paradigm for exchanging information on the Internet using platform-neutral standards, such as XML and adopting Internet-based protocols. They offer greater accessibility of data, dynamic establishment of inter-service relationships and communication paths, inter-applications interactions and data interchange on different platforms in different locations without or with a minimal amount of direct human involvement, and a high degree of service autonomy. Most, if not all, of these features are in conflict with traditional security models and controls and hence introduce new security challenges that are different than traditional security issues. This paper presents and classifies the new security challenges introduced by Web services, and summarizes the current existing techniques on dealing with such challenges. © 2011 WorldCIS. Source

Driving direction applications are becoming an essential need in any mobile device. This paper presents the use of smart heuristic functions, smart algorithms, as well as an efficient data structure to find an efficient path between multiple points (addresses) rather than one destination. Our main approach uses our suggested smart algorithm (A∗Multiple) to determine the best path between multiple destinations. The approach extends our previously suggested algorithm called A∗Traffic as well as our previously suggested structure the Time-Weighted Graph. © 2014 Infonomics Society. Source

Driving direction traffic Systems are becoming needed systems among many Geographical Information systems (GIS's) by many kinds of users. Yahoo maps, MapQuest, and Google Earth are examples of online Internet applications. Vehicles GPS or what is known as navigation systems are also examples. Calculating the best driving path (shorter in distance or faster in time) between two addresses is subject to many factors. Some of these factors are distances, road situation, road traffic and others. This paper presents the driving traffic problem and a solution for finding an efficient path between two points (addresses) having a number factors. It discusses spatial databases, current solutions, and finally presents a smart solution that is an extension previous solution using A* (an artificial intelligent algorithm) and A*Traffic (a variation of A*, proposed in a previous paper). The new solution uses time as the main factor in the graph representing the road network. © 2010 i-Society. Source
