6870WORLDCOMP Strikes Again for the Last Time
- Mar 13, 2013I graduated
from University of Florida (UFL) and am currently running a computer firm in Florida. I have attended
WORLDCOMP http://www.world-academy-of-science.org in 2010. Except for few keynote speeches and
presentations, the conference was very disappointing due to a large number of
poor quality papers and cancellation of some sessions. I was instantly
suspicious of this conference.
Me and my
UFL and UGA friends started a study on WORLDCOMP. We submitted a paper to WORLDCOMP
2011 and again (the same paper with a modified title) to WORLDCOMP 2012. This
paper had numerous fundamental mistakes. Sample statements from that paper
logic is fuzzy logic and vice versa
developed fuzzy logic
oriented languages do not exhibit any polymorphism or inheritance
(4). TCP and
IP are synonyms and are part of OSI model
systems deal with only one computer
Laptop is an example for a super computer
Operating system is an example for computer hardware
paper did not express any conceptual meaning. However, it was accepted both the times
without any modifications (and without any reviews) and we were invited to submit
the final paper and a payment of $500+ fee to present the paper. We decided to
use the fee for better purposes than making Prof. Hamid Arabnia (Chairman of
WORLDCOMP) rich. After that, we received few reminders from WORLDCOMP to pay
the fee but we never responded.
We MUST say
that you should look at the website http://sites.google.com/site/worlddump1 if you have any thoughts to submit a paper to
WORLDCOMP. DBLP and other indexing
agencies have stopped indexing WORLDCOMP’s proceedings since 2011 due to its
of your WORLDCOMP papers can be changed from “scientific” to “other” (i.e.,
junk or non-technical) at anytime. See the comments http://www.mail-archive.com/tccc@.../msg05168.html of a respected researcher on this. Better not
to have a paper than having it in WORLDCOMP and spoil the resume and peace of
revealed that WORLDCOMP is a money making business, using UGA mask, for Prof.
Hamid Arabnia. He is throwing out a small chunk of that money (around 20
dollars per paper published in WORLDCOMP’s proceedings) to his puppet who
publicizes WORLDCOMP and also defends it at various forums, using
fake/anonymous names. The puppet uses fake names and defames other
conferences/people to divert traffic to WORLDCOMP. That is, the puppet does all
his best to get a maximum number of papers published at WORLDCOMP to get more
money into his (and Prof. Hamid Arabnia’s) pockets.
Monte CarloResort (the venue of WORLDCOMP until 2012) has refused to provide the venue for
WORLDCOMP’13 because of the fears of their image being tarnished due to
WORLDCOMP’s fraudulent activities.
will not be held after 2013.
submission deadline for WORLDCOMP’13 is March 18, 2013 (it will be extended
many times, as usual) but still there are no committee members, no reviewers,
and there is no conference Chairman. The only contact details available on
WORLDCOMP’s website is just an email address!
bothers us the most is that Prof. Hamid Arabnia never posted an apology for the
damage he has done to the research community. He is still trying to defend WORLDCOMP. Let us make a direct request to
him: publish all reviews for all the papers (after blocking identifiable
details) since 2000 conference. Reveal the names and affiliations of all the
reviewers (for each year) and how many papers each reviewer had reviewed on
average. We also request him to look at the Open Challenge at http://sites.google.com/site/dumpconf
that it is our professional obligation to spread this message to alert the
computer science community. Sorry for posting to multiple lists. Spreading the
word is the only way to stop this bogus conference. Please forward this message
to other mailing lists and people.
