C3S2E'11 Final Program

May 16-18, 2011

Concordia University, Montreal

Preface: from the published proceedings



This fourth edition of C3S2E has morphed into an international meeting. For C3S2E'11, we continue to keep our tradition for inviting international experts in various areas of computer science and software engineering to join our team of program committee. As a result, our Program Committee consists of professionals from different parts of the world including: Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea Republic, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States. This committee has done an excellent job in finishing the single-blind review and on-line double-blind debate processes in record time. On average, about 87% of reviews were submitted by the due date and about 3.47 reviews were received for each paper. In terms of submissions, we have attracted 87 high-quality papers submitted by authors from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Jordan, Korea Republic, Russian Federation, Spain, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States. The paper selection process was thorough and competitive. On average, each paper was refereed by at least three reviewers: 15 submissions were accepted as full papers(16%) and 5 papers as short papers with an overall acceptance of 23%. This year, we have program that spans over two days. In addition to research papers and student posters, we also include position papers, which allow authors to give their opinions and vision on exploring new concepts and research directions.
