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 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the

premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective

fields. We anticipate to have 2,400 or more attendees from over 85

countries participating in the 2009 joint conferences.

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 from all over the world 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.

WORLCOMP’09 will be composed of research presentations, keynote

lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and

poster presentations. In recent past, keynote and/or tutorial speakers

included: Prof. David A. Patterson (U. of California, Berkeley);

Prof. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H. Holland

(U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. Brian D. Athey (U. of Michigan,

Ann Arbor), Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State U.); Prof. Barry Vercoe

(MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California, Berkeley);

Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys (OLPC + developer of X

Window); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and

many other distinguished speakers.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by

uploading them to http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/ .

Submissions must be received by Feb. 25, 2009 and they must be in

either MS doc or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages – single space,

font size of 10 to 12). 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

publication.)

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, 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. Finally, the name of the conference that

the paper is being submitted to must be stated on the first page.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity,

impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two experts

in the field who are independent of the conference program committee.

The referees’ evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of

the program committee who will recommend a decision to the chair of

the track that the paper has been submitted to. The chair will make

the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed

by one member of the program committee.

PROPOSAL FOR ORGANIZING SESSIONS/WORKSHOPS:

Each session will have at least 6 paper presentations from

different authors (12 papers in the case of workshops). The

session chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their

sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, …

The names of session chairs will appear as Associate Editors in

the conference proceedings and on the cover of the books.

Proposals to organize sessions should include the following

information: name and address (+ email) of proposer, title of

session, a 100-word description of the topic of the session,

the name of the conference the session is submitted for

consideration, and a short description on how the session will

be advertised (in most cases, session proposers solicit papers

from colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the

session proposer). email your session proposal to H. R. Arabnia

(address is given above). We would like to receive the proposals

by January 16, 2009.

IMPORTANT DATES:

Jan. 16, 2009: Proposals for organizing/chairing sessions/workshops

Feb. 25, 2009: Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages)

March 25, 2009: Notification of acceptance

April 25, 2009: Camera-Ready papers and Registration due

MEMBERS OF PROGRAM AND ORGANIZING COMMITTEES:

The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy

of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; AI;

imaging science; databases; simulation; software engineering;

embedded systems; internet and web technologies; communications;

computer security; and bioinformatics.) The Program Committee for

individual conferences is currently being formed. Those interested

in joining the Program Committee should email H. R. Arabnia

(hra@cs.uga.edu) the following information: Name, affiliation

and position, complete mailing address, email address, a short

biography together with research interests and the name of the

conference offering to help with.

Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks

are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and

practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research

laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of

departments, deans and provosts.

LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas,

Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is

a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000

rooms. It 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, sunning decks, Easy

River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows,

a number of restaurants, … The negotiated room rate for

conference attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within
