This volume contains the papers presented at the 2nd European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2005) held in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, from 29th May to 1st June, 2005. The vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance today&#8217;s Web via the exploi- tion of machine-processable metadata. The explicit representation of the sem- tics of data, accompanied with domain theories (ontologies), will enable a web that provides a qualitatively new level of service. It will weave together an - crediblylargenetworkofhumanknowledgeandwillcomplementitwithmachine processability. Various automated services will help the user to achieve goals by accessing and providing information in a machine-understandable form. This process may ultimately create extremely knowledgeable systems with various specialized reasoning services systems. Many technologies and methodologies are being developed within arti?cial intelligence, human language technology, machine learning, databases, software engineering and information systems that can contribute to the realization of this vision. The 2nd Annual European Semantic Web Conference presented the latest results in research and applications of Semantic Web technologies. Following the success of the ?rst edition, ESWC showed a signi?cant increase in participation. With148submissions,thenumberofpapersdoubledthatofthepreviousedition.

This book presents reviews, examples and case studies of innovative applications in solid and hazardous waste management. The economics of waste management have since become a significant research area in their own right, and two chapters address these issues. In addition, dedicated chapters cover specific categories of waste such as biomedical and institutional waste, plastics and e-waste. The book subsequently discusses newer analytical methods like SEM, EDX, XRD and optical microscopy, along with selected &#8220;older&#8221; methods for sampling and characterizing different types of waste. The various applications of mathematical tools like linear optimization, various software/models like WISCLeach, and DRASTIC, and tools like remote sensing and GIS are illustrated in many of the chapters. Lastly, since composting is one of the most popular treatment methods for managing the organic component of municipal solid waste, the book provides an overview of composting and the fundamentals of microbiology that are essential to understanding waste-related biological processes. The book was primarily written for students and practitioners in the field who are already familiar with the basics. All chapters were prepared by practicing experts and scholars in the field, and are intended to help readers better understand and apply these principles and practices in their own endeavours. Key topics covered in the book: &#8226; The circular economy and the economics of solid waste management &#8226; Various remote sensing and GIS applications for managing municipal solid waste, coal fires in mines, changes in land use and land cover in industrial areas, etc. &#8226; Treatment and management of different types of solid waste: institutional (including biomedical), residential, e-waste, plastic, and ash from thermal power plants &#8226; Sampling and characterization of municipal waste and compost &#8226; Fundamentals of microbiology &#8226; Overview of environmental regulations, especially those pertaining to solid and hazardous waste management
Structural Equation Modeling can be known as SEM is the Second Generation Statistical Method to determine the inter-relationship among variabes in a model. This technique can be obtain using AMOS, MPLUS, EQS and others. However, the author is interest to apply AMOS since this package is one of the newest software developed. The strength of this book is to ease the readers in various field to apply this method on their study besides the formula is also given. In this instance, the author intend to modeling the multigroup moderated mediation using structural equation modeling in order to achieve the objective research using real examples.

A security event manager (SEM) (acronyms SIEM and SIM) is a computerized tool used on enterprise data networks to centralize the storage and interpretation of logs, or events, generated by other software running on the network. SEMs are a relatively new idea, pioneered in 1999 by a small company called e-Security, and in 2010 are still evolving rapidly. Just a year or two ago they were called security information managers (SIMs) and are also called security information and event managers (SIEMs). An adjacent, but somewhat different market also exists for Log Management, although these two fields are closely related, Log Management typically focuses on collection and storage of data whereas SEM focuses on data analysis. Some vendors specialize in one market or the other and some do both, or have complementary products.
This new edition surveys the full range of available structural equation modeling (SEM) methodologies. The book has been updated throughout to reflect the arrival of new software packages, which have made analysis much easier than in the past. Applications in a broad range of disciplines are discussed, particularly in the social sciences where many key concepts are not directly observable. This book presents SEM's development in its proper historical context-essential to understanding the application, strengths and weaknesses of each particular method. This book also surveys the emerging path and network approaches that complement and enhance SEM, and that are growing in importance. SEM's ability to accommodate unobservable theory constructs through latent variables is of significant importance to social scientists. Latent variable theory and application are comprehensively explained and methods are presented for extending their power, including guidelines for data preparation, sample size calculation and the special treatment of Likert scale data. Tables of software, methodologies and fit statistics provide a concise reference for any research program, helping assure that its conclusions are defensible and publishable.
The genus Trichoderma contains species that are of great economic importance due to their ability to act as biological control agents against a large variety of fungal plant pathogens. In the present investigation eight isolates of the Trichoderma sp. were obtained from the rhizosphere soils of Bharuch and Narmada districts of Gujarat (India). The isolates were characterized on the basis of their cultural, morphological, and molecular characteristics. SEM was used to study the presence of conidiophores, phialides, and conidia. These isolates were studied using Randomly Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) for genetic diversity. A total number of 101 reproducible polymorphic bands were obtained using 9 random primers. The data were subjected to numerical analysis using NTSYS software and genetic distance between each isolate was calculated. Cluster analysis was used to generate a dendrogram showing the relationship among them. RAPD profile showed the genetic diversity among the eight isolates with the formation of three clusters T. harzianum, T. viride and T. longibrachiatum.

In present study, Light weight Expanded Clay Aggregate (LECA) coated with iron (Fe) oxide has been explored as a green and low cost sorbent to remove Ni (II) from polluted water. Iron Oxide Coated LECA (IOCL) as a new sorbent was examined for its efficiency as Ni (II) sorbent by change the operational parameters, such as contact time, initial pH of the solutions, sorbent dosages and initial Ni (II) concentration in batch systems. Also the adsorption characteristics of Natural LECA (NL) and IOCL were examined trough X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy analysis. Results revealed that modified sorbent have a rougher surface with holes and cave type opening on the surface, which state high porosity and favorable surface area for adsorption process. The surface area increased due to coating process. The results obtained from Design-Expert software indicate that a IOCL dosage of 5.0 g.L-1, initial solution pH of 6.2 and initial Ni (II) concentration of 50.0 mg.L-1 in contact time of 2 h, has the optimum condition for removal of Ni (II) in domain of experiments.

Non equilibrium crystallization of Aluminium based alloys with transition metals. The solidification of Al-rich Al-Mn alloys (3.5 %, 4 % & 4.5 % wt) and Al-rich Al-Cu-Mn system has been studied both experimentally and by calculation of the phase equilibria using ThermoCalc software. For Al-Mn system, the results of the previous studies which indicated that one or more stable intermetallic phases get suppressed on solidification from the liquid, have been confirmed. Al-Mn-Cu ternary system in the aluminium rich region is experimentally investigated in as-cast state. Phase relations and solubility limits have been determined for the binary and ternary compounds using SEM/EDS, EPMA and XRD techniques. The ternary compound 1 has been found in the Al-Cu-Mn system, the compositions and it's homogeneity ranges has also been determined. This phase forms not only by U4 or U7 type reactions but also by ternary eutectic E2 type reaction in Al-rich region. The composition of 1 has an average composition of Al20Mn3Cu2/ Mn6Cu4Al29. It is much better to consider a general composition of Mn6+xCu4+yAl29-x-y.
