forum for exchanging ideas, experiences and research results among
researchers, practitioners, and students. CLEI 2016 will consist of
nine (9) thematic symposia and several keynotes, workshops, tutorials,
and panels.

CLEI 2016 calls for papers reporting results of a theoretical nature
and/or practice that advance the state of the art or present relevant
applications or cases in the areas of interest of the symposia or
associated events. It aims for a mixed academic and industrial audience.

Paper submission deadline: May 15, 2016

( using the EasyChair platform.

* Submitted papers must present original research results or relevant
experience reports, and should not be published or under evaluation for
