These multiple volumes (LNCS volumes 6782, 6783, 6784, 6785 and 6786) consist of the peer-reviewed papers from the 2011 International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA 2011) held in Santander, Spain during June 20-23, 2011. ICCSA 2011 was a successful event in the International Conferences on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA) conference series, previously held in Fukuoka, Japan (2010), Suwon, South Korea (2009), Perugia, Italy (2008), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2007), Glasgow, UK (2006), Singapore (2005), Assisi, Italy (2004), Montreal, Canada (2003), and (as ICCS) Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2002) and San Francisco, USA (2001). Computational science is a main pillar of most of the present research, as well as industrial and commercial activities and plays a unique role in exploiting ICT innovative technologies. The ICCSA conferences have been providing a venue to researchers and industry practitioners to discuss new ideas, to share complex problems and their solutions, and to shape new trends in computational science. Apart from the general tracks, ICCSA 2011 also included 31 special sessions and workshops, in various areas of computational science, ranging from computational science technologies to specific areas of computational science, such as computer graphics and virtual reality. We accepted 52 papers for the general track, and 210 in special sessions and workshops. These represent an acceptance rate of 29.7%. We would like to show our appreciations to the Workshop and Special Session Chairs and co-Chairs. The success of the ICCSA conference series, in general, and ICCSA 2011, in particular, is due to the support of many people: authors, presenters, participants, keynote speakers, Session Chairs, Organizing Committee members, student volunteers, Program Committee members, International Liaison Chairs, and people in other various roles. We would like to thank them all. We would also like to thank Springer for their continuous support in publishing ICCSA conference proceedings. June 2011 Osvaldo Gervasi David Taniar
