      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 25 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the
      premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective
      fields. We anticipate to have 2,600 or more attendees from over 80
      countries participating in the 2008 joint conferences.

      WORLCOMP'08 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. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H. Holland
      (U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State U.);
      Prof. Barry Vercoe (MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California,
      Berkeley); Prof. David Cheriton (Stanford U.), Prof. A. K. Dunker
      (Indiana U. and Purdue U.); Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys
      (developer of X Window, ...); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO,

      H. R. Arabnia by March 10, 2008. email submissions in MS document
      or PDF formats are preferable. 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 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.
