Foreword: This volume contains the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Software and Data Technologies - ICSOFT 2011. The conference is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), held in collaboration with the University of Seville and the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Informática (ETSII) at the University of Seville, and organized in cooperation with IICREST (Interdisciplinary Institute for Collaboration and Research on Enterprise Systems and Technology), CEPIS (Council of European Professional Informatics Societies), ATI (Asociación de Técnicos de Informática), FIDETIA (Fundación para la Investigación y el Desarollo de las Tecnologías de la Información en Andalucía) and INES (Iniciativa Española de Software y Servicios). The purpose of ICSOFT is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in information technology and software development. The conference tracks are “Enterprise Software Technology”, “Software Engineering”, “Distributed Systems”, “Data Management” and “Knowledge-Based Systems”. Software and data technologies are essential for developing any computer information system, encompassing a large number of research topics and applications: from programming issues to the more abstract theoretical aspects of software engineering; from databases and data-warehouses to the most complex management information systems; knowledge-base systems; distributed systems, ubiquity, data quality and many other topics are included in the scope of ICSOFT. ICSOFT 2011 received 220 paper submissions from 48 countries. To evaluate each submission, a double-blind paper evaluation method was used: each paper was reviewed by at least two internationally known experts from the ICSOFT Program Committee. Only 27 papers were selected to be published and presented as full papers, i.e. completed work (10 pages in proceedings / 30’ oral presentation). Additionally, 62 papers were accepted as short papers (6 pages / 20’ oral presentation), - for a total of 89 oral presentations – and 33 papers as posters. The full-paper acceptance ratio was thus 12.3%, while the total oral paper acceptance ratio was 40.4%. As in previous editions of the conference, based on the reviewers’ evaluations and on the presentations, a short list of authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for a book which will be published by Springer with the best papers of ICSOFT 2011. ICSOFT’s program includes panels to discuss aspects of software development from both theoretical and practical perspectives, with the participation of distinguished world-class researchers and practitioners; furthermore, the program is enriched by several keynote lectures delivered by renowned experts in their areas of knowledge. These high points in the conference program definitely contribute to reinforce the overall quality of the ICSOFT conference, which is already becoming one of the most prestigious yearly events in its area. The program for this conference required the dedicated effort of many people. Firstly, we must thank the authors, whose research efforts are herewith recorded. Secondly, we thank the members of the Program Committee and the additional reviewers for their diligent and professional reviewing. Next, we would like to personally thank the local organizers for all their hard work to provide smooth logistics and a friendly environment. Last but not least, we thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesize and prepare their talks. A successful conference involves more than paper presentations; it is also a meeting place, where ideas about new research projects and other ventures are discussed and debated. Therefore, a social event - including dinner - has been arranged for the evening of July 19 (Tuesday) in order to promote this kind of social networking. We wish you all an exciting conference and an unforgettable stay in the city of Seville. We hope to meet you again next year for the 7th ICSOFT, to be held in Rome, details of which will shortly be made available at http://www.icsoft.org. (More)
