It stands for Common Era, and is one half of a system of measuring time - the opposite is BCE, which means Before Common Era. It is gradually replacing BC and AD as a way of classifying years. The present year is 2011 CE.

It can also stand for "Christian Era;" perhaps more accurately. There was no sudden commonality in the world at 1CE.
