[ Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement.]


Concordia University is organizing C3S2E'11, the Fourth International C*
Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering, in May 2011.

With so many questionable academic meetings and their CFPs which we get
everyday, direct emailing has become a nuisance; hence we need to depend
on the old reliable grapevine approach. We would, consequently, appreciate
if you would bring the CFP for this meeting to the attention of your
colleagues and students.

We plan, also to have a number of workshops. If you would like to organize
one, please contact one of the program chairs. As a general rule, you
would be responsible for the CFP and review and acceptance of papers for
the workshop. The Admin for ConfSys would set up the system for the
workshop. The accepted papers for the workshop would be scheduled during
the workshop slot and the papers would be published with the C3S2E'11

Since ConfSys review is triple blind, committee members of the workshop
could also submit paper.

Call for Regular, Workshops and Position papers; posters and demo

C3S2E'11 is the fourth in a revived series of international conferences to
address the need of the academic community in computing science and
software engineering. The objective of C3S2E is to meet annually to
exchange ideas on the continuing need to address the new challenges both
from the theoretical as well as application aspects of computing and
engineering of software systems. C3S2E encourages the participation of
practitioners from governmental and non-governmental agencies, industries,
and academia.

C3S2E invites quality papers describing original and applied research
ideas and new findings on technological and theoretical aspects of
computing and software engineering. In particular, we welcome submissions
describing work on integrating new technologies into products and
applications, on experiences with existing and novel techniques, and on
the identification of unsolved challenges. We consider this meeting to be
an important forum to discuss experiences in applying computing and
software engineering to actual situations. Authors are invited to submit
papers in English or French, reporting recent research in the area of
computing and software development theories and practices and experience
in related fields. While research papers should report original research
work, experience and application papers should describe the development
and operations of challenging computing related systems and applications.
The symposium will have focused sessions in the following areas:

    * Algorithms and Theory
    * Artificial Intelligence and Related Subjects
    * Bio-medical,life science and medical computing
    * Computational Linguistics
    * Computing Applications
    * Core Computing Technology
    * Data Bases
    * E-Commerce
    * Ethics
    * Hardware and Architecture
    * Human-Computer Interaction
    * Open Source
    * Parallel Computing
    * Programming Languages
    * Privacy and Security
    * Software Engineering
    * Supercomputing
    * System Technology
    * Virtual Reality
    * Web Design and Development
    * Emerging computing technologies

The scope of the conference includes the above topics but is not
restricted to these areas in computing and software engineering: following
are some of the topics typically used by computer scientists to describe
their interests:

Algorithms, Applications, Artificial intelligence, Automata theory,
Automated reasoning, Bioinformatics, Compiler theory, Computability
theory, Computational complexity theory, Computational linguistic,
Computer architecture, Computer graphics, Computer programming, Computer
security, Computer vision, Concurrency, Cryptography, Data Models, Data
mining, Data structures, Data warehousing, Digital library, Distributed
computing, Expert Systems, Formal methods, Functional Programming, Game
theory, Graph theory, Human computer interaction, Image processing,
Information Retrieval, Knowledge base system, Machine learning, Machine
translation, Mathematical logic, Multimedia, Natural Language Processing,
Networking, Number theory, Numerical analysis, Operating systems, Parallel
computing, Programming language, Quantum computing theory, Reverse
engineering, Robotics, Scientific computing, Semantic Web, Semi-structured
data, Software engineering, Speech synthesis and recognition, Super
computing, Symbolic computation, Web database

Call for proposals for Workshop or Panels

Proposals are invited for workshops or panels to be held in conjunction
with the symposium, in the areas of interest within the scope of
conference. The workshop papers would be published in the C3S2E
proceedings. The detailed proposals should reach the program chairs by
March 1, 2011.

Position Papers

In addition to regular papers, position papers are invited. These papers
could be work in progress and/or exploring of new concepts and directions.

Position papers should be clearly marked on the first page and for the
review purpose could be of a length varying from a short paper(6-10 pages)
to a regular full paper (15-20 pages).

Poster & Demos

This is an integral part of this meeting. In the poster session, graduate
students are invited to compete by presenting their work in progress
either as a poster or a demo. The students have a chance to orally present
their work and also display the salient features of their work and answer
questions. The posters would be judged by the attendants and the best
posters could be awarded prizes.

The length of a poster paper and demo proposal for review purpose would be
5-7 pages. The adviser could be a co:author of a poster paper or demo
proposal, however, if the poster paper/demo is accepted, the student is
required to register and participate. Poster papers and demo summaries
would be published as part of the proceedings.

Cultural/Social Events

In addition to the conference dinner, there would be a guided tour of the
"The Warrior Emperor and China's Terracotta Army" at the Montreal Museum
of Fine Arts. According to the organizers "This Canadian national tour is
a newly developed and contextually different presentation than previous,
international displays. The number of full-sized warriors and the
exhibitions scope makes this the largest display of the First Emperors
terracotta army ever to be seen in North America."

Conference Publication

The conference proceedings will be published by BytePress/ACM and would be
added to ACM's Digital Library. All submissions would also be invited to
publish their papers in the CINDI Digital Library. The extended version of
the best papers would also be recommended for publication in a special
edition of reputed journal.

Important Dates

All the dates are given on the milestone page on ConfSys for C3S2E
(accessible to registered users). The following are the salient ones:

ConfSys user Sign-Up begins:    Always on
