      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.
