This edition is redesigned emerging ideas information technology– Computing, Communication and Networking– into four sections. First section deals with current areas of importance in Computing, i.e. Software Engineering, Data Mining & Warehousing, Cloud Computing, Image Processing, Natural Language Processing etc. Second section covers ideas and technologies related to the field of Communication, such as Telematics, Optical Burst Switching, Satellite Communication, Location Management etc. Third section is related to networking related developments, such as Wireless Optical Broadband, Wireless Sensor Network, Telemedicine, Mobile Adhoc Networks etc. Section IV delves into technical areas that are intimately related to the above mentioned areas, such as Super Conductivity, Nanotechnology and Sixth Sense technology. Thus, this edition provides an eclectic coverage of new ideas and technologies emerging in Computing, Communicating and Networking and shall serve as a rich reference resource for people associated with these areas.
