This volume addresses the state-of-the-art and future directions of informatics. Several senior researchers and graduate students present their research and work here. The purpose of the book is to disseminate the latest scientific, engineering and technical information in various fields of informatics. It covers a wide range of subjects, from theoretical computer science, software engineering, systems and scientific computing to networking and applied research. The book can be used either as a reference for related scientific work or as educational material for advanced computer science courses.
