see http://www.dmin-2012.com/special_sessions.htm for details



SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
them
to the DMIN online paper management system according to the
instructions
provided at http://www.dmin-2012/submission (please do not upload your
DMIN draft paper to the general WORLDCOMP system).

Submissions must be uploaded in pdf format by March 12, 2012. Papers
must
not have been previously published or currently submitted for
publication
elsewhere. The first page of the paper should include: title of the
paper, name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each
author. The first page should also identify the name of the Contact
Author
and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
content
of the paper. A 100 to 400-word abstract should be included on the
first
page as well. The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers
(if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages
including
all figures, tables etc.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness (see
http://www.dmin-2012.com/review.htm). In cases of
contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program
committee will be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject);
often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees by
using a
double-blinded review process. All proceedings of WORLDCOMP will be
published and indexed in: Inspec / IET /
The Institute for Engineering & Technology, DBLP / CS Bibliography, &
others.

All conferences will be held simultaneously; ie, same location and
dates.

scholars, researchers, scientists and practitioners of high ranks;
many are directors of research labs., members of National Academy of
Engineering, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of
departments,
program directors of research funding agencies, as well as deans and
provosts.

Program Committee members are expected to have established a strong
and
documented research track record. Those interested in joining the
Program
Committee and supporting the conference should send program-
ch...@dmin-2012.com
(cc to conferen...@dmin-2012.com) the following information
for consideration/evaluation: Name, affiliation and position, complete
mailing address, email address, and a one-page biography that includes
research expertise. It is expected that a Program Committee member is
willing to support the conference, e.g., by reviewing approximately
2 to 5 papers.


PROPOSAL FOR ORGANIZING CONFERENCE TRACKS:

DMIN is composed of a number of tracks. A track can be a session,
a workshop, or a symposium. A session will have at least 6 papers; a
workshop at least 12 papers; and a symposium at least 18 papers. Track
chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their tracks, including:
soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, ... The names of track chairs
will appear as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and on
the cover of the printed books (and indexed in science databases as
such).

Proposals to organize tracks (sessions, workshops, or symposiums)
should
include the following information: name and address (+ email) of
proposer,
his/her biography, title of track, a 100 to 200-word description of
the topic of

An important mission of WORLDCOMP is "Providing a unique platform for
a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government
agencies,
and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also
attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching
as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions
that
have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system
to
achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives."

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for
cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.

MEASURABLE SCIENTIFIC IMPACT OF WORLDCOMP:

As of November 23, 2011, papers published in WORLDCOMP set of
proceedings
have received 15,860 citations. In recent months (March to November
2011),
there had been 1,475 citations to WORLDCOMP papers (about 164
citations per
month). The above record is significant (thanks to the authors). As
the
result of high impact (based on citations) of WORLDCOMP papers,
"Microsoft
Academic Search" has listed each individual track of the congress
among its
compiled list of "Top Conferences". The citation record of WORLDCOMP
set of
proceedings is in fact higher than the citation data of many reputable
journals in computer science and computer engineering. (The above
citation
data does not include citations to WORLDCOMP papers published in 2011;
thus,
it is highly probable that the actual number of citations is higher;
citation data was obtained from http://academic.research.microsoft.com/
)


We look forward to receiving your submission of your draft paper.
