Sixth International C* Conference on Computer Science & Software Engineering


10-12 July, 2013


C3S2E'13 Call for Papers



C3S2E'2013[] is the sixth in a series of annual international conferences addressing the needs of the academic community in computing science and software engineering. The objective of C3S2E is to meet annually to exchange ideas on current issues and focus on new challenges from both the theoretical and application aspects of CSE. C3S2E encourages the participation of practitioners from governmental and non-governmental agencies, industry, and academia not only from CSE but also from other disciplines with the potential of collaboration. The meeting offers participants a chance to broaden their insight into the multi-facets of CSE and emerging technologies while exploring R&D ideas in other disciplines as well, where CSE can make meaningful contributions.


C3S2E invites quality papers describing original ideas and new findings on applied technological and theoretical aspects of CSE or in other disciplines with potential for applying and extending the CSE horizons. 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 a unique and important forum to discuss insights into applying and extending all aspects of computing and software engineering methodologies in novel situations.


In addition to a "Main Track", C3S2E'2013, will have focused sessions in the following tracks, Details for the tracks are given in the track pages accessible by clicking on the link for the track in the right margin. Each track is headed by track chair(s) who could be reached for additional details. Each track is indicated in ConfSys site for C3S2E'2013 by the name of the track. Authors should choose the appropriate track for their submissions.




Invited Talks

A number of invited speakers would round up the final program of C3S2E'13.


Cultural/Social Event


Porto, with an area of 45km2 and population of about 260 thousand, is the second biggest city in the country. It is known as the capital of the North and its Historic Centre of has been classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. Temperate maritime climate, with a mild summer and temperatures from 15 ºC to 25 ºC, occasionally reaching 35 ºC between July and September. Autumn and winter are typically windy, rainy and cool, with temperatures from 5 ºC to 14 ºC.

Porto is increasingly being recommended as a tourist destination. Tales of treasured experiences are featured in newspapers, magazines and on online sites across the world. It has also been awarded Best European Destination 2012.

Portugal´s second biggest city isn´t so much known for its size but rather for what makes it so different from other destinations: the warmth of its people and its ability to both surprise and excite.

In Porto you´ll find constant diversity and unpredictable contrasts that are fascinating to discover. It is a place caught between past and present; urban mingled with river, sea and fresh air; tradition crossed with innovation; antiquity mixed with modernity. The riverside city is admired for its constant flow of traditions and unusual ways, yet Porto also provokes the desire to explore slowly, from one corner to another on the cobbled streets, savouring
