[ 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
proceedings published by ACM.
Since ConfSys review is triple blind: committee members of the workshop
could also submit paper.
In the demo/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 answer
questions. The length of a poster paper and demo proposal for review purposes
would be 5-7 pages. However, the final version is limited to 3
pages in the ACM proceedings format. All submissions would be reviewed
and the student authors of at most 10 highest scoring submissions
would have their registration fees waived. In case there are multiple
student authors only one student per such poster/demo paper is eligible for
the registration fee waiver. The student's 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 papers would be published as part of the C3S2E
proceedings. The demo and poster submissions are due in March.

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,
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
* Hardware and Architecture
* Human-Computer Interaction
* Open Source
* Parallel Computing
* Programming Languages
* Privacy and Security
* Software Engineering
* 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
Algorithms, Applications, Artificial intelligence, Automata theory,
Automated reasoning, Bioinformatics, Compiler theory, Computability

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

STATEMENT OF EXCLUSIVE SUBMISSION
Submissions must be original. The work cannot have been published previously or be pending publication in another forum and
submissions cannot be under review by any other forum.
It is expected that all authors accept the following statement:
This paper (or a similar version) is not currently under review by a journal or conference, nor will it be submitted to such
until the result of this review has been communicated. Furthermore, the author(s) agree to abide by the decision of the Program
chairs and would participate in the meeting should the paper be accepted.
The author who submits a paper is expected to inform all co:authors of the submission and has their approval.
Authors should submit only papers that have been carefully proofread and polished. Papers that are clearly unacceptable will be
returned by the editor without being reviewed. Authors must clearly acknowledge the contributions of their predecessors.
Submissions will be evaluated on their originality and significance.
Though a group of authors may submit multiple papers, we expect that each paper would be presented by a separate co:author to
allow for a wider point of views during the presentations and discussions. The authors are expected to upload the paper in PDF
PDF format Guidelines
At a minimum, basic PDF distiller settings MUST be changed so PDF files are: optimized, set to Acrobat 4.0 compatibility, all
graphics are set to at least 300 dpi resolution, ALL fonts used must be embeddable. Some font manufacturers now flag their fonts
to not embed. These fonts should be avoided. Postscript settings SHOULD NOT override distiller settings and page size is 612.0 x
792.0 points (8.5" x 11"). Authors should check their final PDF files before submission to verify that all fonts have been
properly embedded and subset. Please DO NOT USE type 1 (bitmapped) fonts; they do not display correctly in most PDF readers.
The program committee reserves the right to consider any paper, to be accepted as a short paper or to be presented in a poster
or the workshop session. One of the authors of each accepted paper is expected to present the paper in person.
