/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// PIC-2010 Call for Papers 2010 International Conference on Progress in Informatics and Computing (PIC-2010, http://pic.sjtu.edu.cn) will be held on Dec 10-12, 2010, in Shanghai, the largest city in China, which is located on China's central eastern coast just at the mouth of the Yangtze River. It is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, with over 20 million people. This Year, the forty-first World Expo is held in Shanghai, which is one of the famous events in the world, and it provides an extra reason why shanghai worth visiting this year. PIC-2010 provides a forum for researchers and practitioners in academia and industry to discuss the progress, challenges, experiences and trends of the theoretical and application issues in computing science, software technology, information system, to exchange ideas, share knowledge and promote future cooperation.
