Welcome to the Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference on Advanced
Software Engineering and Its Applications (ASEA 2010) – one of the partnering events
of the Second International Mega-Conference on Future Generation Information
Technology (FGIT 2010).
ASEA brings together researchers from academia and industry as well as
practitioners to share ideas, problems and solutions relating to the multifaceted aspects
of software engineering, including its links to computational sciences, mathematics and
In total, 1,630 papers were submitted to FGIT 2010 from 30 countries, which
includes 175 papers submitted to ASEA 2010. The submitted papers went through a
rigorous reviewing process: 395 of the 1,630 papers were accepted for FGIT 2010,
while 40 papers were accepted for ASEA 2010. Of the 640 papers were selected for
the special FGIT 2010 volume published by Springer in the LNCS series. 32 papers
are published in this volume, and 2 papers were withdrawn due to technical reasons.
We would like to acknowledge the great effort of the ASEA 2010 International
Advisory Board and members of the International Program Committee, as well as all
the organizations and individuals who supported the idea of publishing this volume of
proceedings, including SERSC and Springer. Also, the success of the conference
would not have been possible without the huge support from our sponsors and the
work of the Chairs and Organizing Committee.
We are grateful to the following keynote speakers who kindly accepted our
invitation: Hojjat Adeli (Ohio State University), Ruay-Shiung Chang (National Dong
Hwa University), and Andrzej Skowron (University of Warsaw). We would also like
to thank all plenary and tutorial speakers for their valuable contributions.
We would like to express our greatest gratitude to the authors and reviewers of all
paper submissions, as well as to all attendees, for their input and participation.
Last but not least, we give special thanks to Rosslin John Robles and Maricel
Balitanas. These graduate school students of Hannam University contributed to the
editing process of this volume with great passion.
