This special issue comprises of 9 selected papers from the International Workshop on Computer Science and Engineering 2009 (WCSE 2009) & International Symposium on Information Science and Engineering 2009(ISISE 2009). The conferences received 1350 paper submissions from 17 countries and regions, of which 512 were selected for presentation after a rigorous review process. From these 512 research papers, through two rounds of reviewing, the guest editors selected 9 as the best papers on the Software track of the Conference. The candidates of the Special Issue are all the authors, whose papers have been accepted and presented at the WCSE 2009 and ISISE 2009, with the contents not been published elsewhere before.The WCSE 2009 are sponsored by Qingdao University of Science & Technology, China; Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, Russia; Nanchang HangKong University, China; National Chung Hsing University,Taiwan;Hunan Agricultural University , China; Guangdong University of Business Studies, China;Jiaxing University, China. Technical Co-Sponsors of the conference are IEEE, IEEE Shandong Section, and IEEE Shanghai Section.“Cognition Inspired Object Oriented Knowledge Warehouse Architecture”, by Xixu Fu and Hui Wei. In this paper, the essence of knowledge is analyzed according human cognition and related work first. Then 3-World theory of knowledge warehouse structure is advanced based on the analysis. Based on the theory, the common sense and concept cluster is further discussed and the architecture is advanced. At last the problem solving process on this archietecture is discussed.“An Approximate Optimal Damping Control Method for Nonlinear Time-delay Systems with Disturbances”, by De-xin Gao and Jing-jing Wang. A systematic ODC algorithm is presented in this paper for nonlinear time-delay systems with sinusoidal disturbances. The proposed algorithms not only solve optimal control problems in the nonlinear time-delay system but also reduce the computation time and improve the precision.“A Receipt-free Coercion-resistant Remote Internet Voting Protocol without Physical Assumptions through Deniable Encryption and Trapdoor Commitment Scheme”, by Bo Meng,Zimao Li and Jun Qin, proposes a receipt-free coercion-resistant remote Internet voting protocol based on MW deniable encryption scheme and BCP commitment scheme is developed. The proposed protocol is the first remote Internet voting protocol, which has receipt-freeness and coercion-resistance and is implemented without physical assumptions.“The Topological Properties of the Approximation Operators on A CCD Lattice”, by Yan Gao,Jilin Yang and Weifeng Du, proposes the discussion of the relationship between approximations and topologies on a CCD lattice. It is proved that the set of all upper approximations (or of lower approximations) with respect to a partition consists of a clopen topology; and conversely, a clopen topology which obey disjoint axiom can be induced by approximations.“A Hybrid Real-Time Scheduling Approach on Multi-Core Architectures”, by Chunxiao Ye and Xiang Li, proposes an Attribute-Based Delegation Model (ABDM), in which delegatee must satisfy both delegation prerequisite condition (CR) and delegation attribute expression (DAE) when assigned to a delegation role. ABDM introduce some auto revocation mechanics to support two new types of auto revocation: revocation triggered by the change of user’s delegation attribute expression and revocation triggered by the change of delegated permission’s delegation attribute expression, which are different from existing revocations.“A General Framework for Multi-Human Tracking” by Ahmed Ali and Kenji Terada, proposes a robust framework for multi- Human tracking. It includes a combination of Kalman filter and fast mean shift algorithm. Moving objects in the scene are segmented between the incoming frames and the current background model. The system implemented by the proposed method can track moving objects in real time as well as the system need to be more efficient to solve the total occlusion problem.“Performance analysis of system model Based on UML state diagrams and continuous-time Markov chains”, by Yefei Zhao,Zongyuan Yang, Jinkui Xie and Qiang Liu, emphasized on the formal semantics of UML state diagrams oriented performance analysis. UML state diagrams are abstracted as a multi-tuple.“An Approach to Analyzing User Preference based Dynamic Service Composition” by Guisheng Fan,Huiqun Yu, Liqiong Chen and Caizhu Yu, proposes a hierarchical dynamic service composition net (HDSC-net), and user's preference based mechanism for service composition. HDSC-net is used to model operation, the relationships between operations, operation mapping, and user's preference.“An Approach to Formally Modeling and Verifying Distributed Real-time Embedded Software” by Liqiong Chen,Guisheng Fan and Yunxiang Liu, a Hierarchical Distributed Real-time Embedded net (HDRE-net) is proposed as software analysis tool.We are particularly grateful to IEEE Fellow Prof. Gary G. Yen, President of IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine, Oklahoma State University, USA; IEEE Fellow Prof. Jun Wang from Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong; IEEE Fellow Prof. Derong Liu, Associate Editor of IEEE Trans. on Neural Networks, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA; IEEE & IET Fellow Prof. Chin-Chen Chang from National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan, and Chair of IEEE Shanghai Section; and Prof. Junfa Mao at Shanghai Jiaotong University, China for accepting our invitation to deliver invited talks at this year’s conference. We wish to thank the Qingdao University of Science & Technology, China for providing the venue to host the conference. In particular, we would like to acknowledge College of Information, Qingdao University of Science & Technology, China, who has worked throughout the year in preparation for this conference. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the authors for the efforts they put in the preparation of the manuscripts and for their valuable contributions. We wish to express our deepest gratitude to the program committee members for their help in selecting papers for this issue and especially the referees of the extended versions of the selected papers for their thorough reviews under a tight time schedule. Last, but not least, our thanks go to the Editorial Board of the Journal of Software for the exceptional effort they did throughout this process.In closing, we sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading this special issue.
