Technical Program

CBMI 2011 received 77 contributions (71 papers and 6 demo proposals). Each proposal has been evaluated by at least 3 reviewers. The program will consist of 26 oral papers (4 regular oral sessions with 4 papers each and 2 special session with 5 papers each), 14 posters and 3 demos. We want to thank all the authors and reviewers for their effort towards the success of CBMI 2011.
