Transactions on Computers Media Center

Our volunteers share with the wider community their views and experiences on a variety of topics. The volunteers can range from associate editors to authors, reviewers or members from the research community at large. The interviews are intended to cover a wide spectrum of topics that are relevant to our community. These topics can be in the form of "shared experiences" and "lessons learned" or highlighting a new technological or theoretical breakthrough. We hope that members of the community will actively participate in making this new feature a great success. For information on submitting multimedia content, please click here.

Call for Papers: IEEE Transactions on Computers Special Section on Computer Arithmetic

Guest Editors Alberto Nannarelli, Peter-Michael Seidel, and Ping Tak Peter Tang [http://www.computer.org/portal/web/tc] seeking original manuscripts for the IEEE Transactions on Computers Special Section on Computer Arithmetic. Submission deadline: September 15, 2013.

 

Computer arithmetic is fundamental to the design of general-purpose and domain-specific processors. Novel arithmetic algorithms and hardware designs are needed to satisfy the power-performance requirements of numerically-intensive applications in a variety of areas including scientific computing, cryptography, multimedia, graphics and digital signal processing. Specialized number representations and encodings play a significant role in the design of arithmetic algorithms and their implementations. Additionally, understanding the fundamental properties of finite precision number systems is essential in the engineering of efficient arithmetic algorithms, as well as the current and future emerging technologies are important in influencing the design and the implementation of such algorithms.

VSPN: VANET-based Secure and Privacy-preserving Navigation

by T.W. Chim, S.M. Yiu, Lucas C.K. Hui and Victor O.K. Li

 

In this paper, we propose a navigation scheme that utilizes the online road information collected by a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) to guide the drivers to desired destinations in a real-time and distributed manner. The proposed scheme has the advantage of using real-time road conditions to compute a better route and at the same time, the information source can be properly authenticated. To protect the privacy of the drivers, the query (destination) and the driver who issues the query are guaranteed to be unlinkable to any party including the trusted authority. We make use of the idea of anonymous credential to achieve this goal. In addition to authentication and privacy-preserving, our scheme fulfills all other necessary security requirements. Using the real maps of New York and California, we conducted a simulation study on our scheme showing that it is effective in terms of processing delay and providing routes of much shorter travelling time.
