      SUBMISSION OF
      PAPERS:

      Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by
      uploading them
      to the evaluation web site at: http://world-comp.org
      Submissions must be uploaded by March
      12, 2012 and they must be in
      either MS doc or pdf formats (about 7 pages
      including all figures,
      tables, and references - 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 final papers for publication.) 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. The name of the conference (ie, CDES) that the paper
      is
      being submitted for consideration must be stated on the first page of
      the
      paper as well as a 100 to 150-word abstract. The length of the
      final
      Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column
      IEEE
      style) pages.

      Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in
      the field for originality,
      significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. 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. In
      addition, all papers whose authors include
      a member of the conference program
      committee will be evaluated using the
      double-blinded review process.
      (Essay/philosophical papers will not be
      refereed but may be considered for
      discussion/panels). Proceedings of CDES
      will be published and indexed in:
      Inspec / IET / The Institute for
      Engineering & Technology, DBLP / CS
      Bibliography, & others. The
      printed proceedings/books will be available for
      distribution on site at the
      conference.

      In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected
      authors will be
      invited to submit extended versions of their papers for
      publication in a
      number of research books contracted with various publishers
      (such as,
      Springer, Elsevier, ...) - these books will be composed after
      the
      conference. Also, many chairs of tracks will be forming journal
      special
      issues to be published after the conference.


      PROPOSAL FOR
      ORGANIZING CONFERENCE TRACKS:

      CDES 2012 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-word description of the
      topic of
      the track, the name of the conference (ie, CDES) the track is
      submitted
      for consideration, and a short description on how the track will
      be
      advertised (in most cases, track proposers solicit papers from
      colleagues
      and researchers whose work is known to the track proposer). E-mail
      your
      track proposal to editor@... . We
      would like to receive the
      track proposals as soon as possible but by no later
      than January 31, 2012.

      GENERAL
      INFORMATION:

      The CDES 2012 conference is being held jointly (same

      with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP).
      WORLDCOMP is the
      largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science,
      computer
      engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have 2,100 or
      more
      attendees from over 80 countries. WORLDCOMP 2012 will be composed

      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/ )
