Purpose / History:
This set of joint conferences is the largest annual gathering of
researchers in computer science, computer engineering and
applied computing. Many of the 28 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP
are the premier conferences for presentation of advances in their
The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research
conferences into a coordinated research meeting held in a common
place at a common time. The main goal is to provide a forum for
exchange of ideas in a number of research areas that interact.
The model used to form these annual conferences facilitates
communication among researchers in different fields of computer
science, computer engineering and applied computing. Both inward
research (core areas of computer science and engineering) and
outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and
applications) will be covered during the conferences.
Submission of Papers:
Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (about
5 to 8 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to
H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 20, 2006. email submissions in MS document
or PDF formats are preferable (Fax or postal submissions are also
fine.) All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later,
the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a
particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for
The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited
to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously
published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The
first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper,
name, affiliation, postal address, email address, telephone number,
and Fax number for each author. The first page should also include
the name of the author who will be presenting the paper (if
and a maximum of 5 keywords. Also, the name of the conference that
the paper is being submitted to must be mentioned on the first page.
Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and
soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two researchers in field.
The Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by one person.
Members of Program and Organizing Committees:
The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy
of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing;
artificial intelligence; imaging science; databases; simulation;
software engineering; embedded systems; internet and web
technologies; communications; computer security; and
Those interested in joining the Program Committee should email
H. R. Arabnia (h...@cs.uga.edu) the following information: Name,
affiliation and position, complete mailing address, email address,
tel/fax numbers, a short biography together with research interests
and the name of the conference offering to help with.
Location of Conferences:
The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort hotel,
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels).
The Monte Carlo Resort is a mega hotel with excellent conference
facilities and over 3,000 rooms. The hotel is minutes from the
airport with 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport.
This hotel has many recreational attractions, including: waterfalls,
spa, pools and kiddie pools, sunning decks, Easy River water ride,
wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis courts, health spa (with
workout equipment, whirlpool, sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality
game rooms, nightly shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants,
shopping area, bars, ... Many of these attractions are open 24
hours a day and most are suitable for families and children. The
negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very reasonable.
The hotel is within walking distance from most other attractions
(major shopping areas, recreational destinations, fine dining,
street shows, ...)

28 conferences, send an email to h...@cs.uga.edu.
If you do not wish to receive future announcements about this
event, please send an email to h...@cs.uga.edu.
Since the automated paper generator was in the news last year, some
conferences are discovered and identified as "fake conferences". Check
out http://fakeconferences.org/. Don't get fooled by conferences that
have no scientific value!

I think that one answer is to accept most, if not all, papers, charge
high registration fees, and hope that the people who attend
don't care about the quality of the papers, as long as the food
A glance at the proceedings of past conferences suggests that
they are not taken seriously by people at "elite" computer science
departments. Note the almost total absence of authors from top-ranked
schools. They presumably know that their resume would be damaged by
publishing in these conferences.

By looking through one's fingers.
The human possibilities have some limits; this is a kind of
law, or at least, a reliable rule of thumb. Nobody can beat it.

Often, absence of professional critics ends in bad way.
Until recently, there was not a single professional publicly
available Maple review; now look what has happened to Maple.
In part, because not a single human being can test software
efficiently; more detail in our beta 0.2.
