      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.

      Feb. 25, 2009: Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages)
      March 25, 2009: Notification of acceptance

      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.

      WORLDCOMP'09 will be composed of research presentations, keynote
      lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and
      poster presentations. One registration fee provides full access to
      all events/sessions of all conferences (including tutorials). The
      registration fee is set at the low end of the academia range for
      conferences.


      MEMBERS OF PROGRAM AND ORGANIZING COMMITTEES:

      The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy
      of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; AI;
      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, a short
      biography together with research interests and the name of the
      conference offering to help with.
      Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks
      are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and
      practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research
      laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of
      departments, deans and provosts.

      LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

      The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas,
      Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is
      a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000
      rooms. It 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, sunning decks, Easy
      River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows,
      a number of restaurants, ... The negotiated room rate for
      conference attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within
      walking distance from most other attractions (recreational
      destinations, Golf courses, ...)
