      General Chair And Coordinator:

      H. R. Arabnia, PhD
      Professor, Computer Science
      Editor-in-Chief, The Journal of Supercomputing (Springer)

      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 24 joint conferences in
      WORLDCOMP are the premier conferences for presentation of
      advances in their respective fields. We anticipate to have
      2000 or more attendees from over 75 countries participating in
      the 2007 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.

      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). E-mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia
      (address is given above). We would like to receive the
      proposals by December 1, 2006.

      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, 2007. E-mail 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 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, email
      address, and telephone number for each author. The first page
      should also identify the name of the author who will be presenting
      the paper (if accepted) 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.

      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
      bioinformatics.) The Program Committee for individual
      conferences is currently being formed. Those interested in
      joining the Program Committee should email H. R. Arabnia
      (hra@...) 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 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 and night clubs, free
      street shows, Golf courses...).
