      SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:
       
      Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
      them to the evaluation web site at:  http://world-comp.org
      Submissions must be uploaded by March 10, 2011 and they must be
      in either MS doc (but not docx) 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 final papers for publication.) Papers must not have
      been previously published or currently submitted for publication
      elsewhere.
      The first page of the 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 (ie, MSV) that the paper is being submitted for
      consideration must be stated on the first page.
       
      The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be
      limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.
       
      Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
      originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases
      of contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference
      program committee will be charged to make the final decision
      (accept/reject) - often, this would involve seeking help from
      additional referees by using a double-blinded review process. In
      addition, all papers whose authors included a member of the
      conference program committee will be evaluated using the
      double-blinded review process. (Essay/philosophical papers will
      not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).
       
      All proceedings of WORLDCOMP will be published and indexed in:
      Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology,
      DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others. The printed proceedings
      will be available for distribution on site at the conference.
       
      In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected
      authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their
      papers for publication in a number of research books being
      proposed/contracted with various publishers (such as, Springer,
      Elsevier, ...) - these books would be composed after the
      conference. Also, many chairs of sessions and workshops will
      be forming journal special issues to be published after the
      conference.

      GENERAL INFORMATION:
       
      MSV conference is an important track of a federated research
      conference. It is being held jointly (same location and dates)
      with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP).
      WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer
      science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate
      to have 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries.
       
      WORLDCOMP 2011 will be composed of research presentations, keynote
      lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions,
      and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel
      speakers have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer/
      architecture, U. of California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler
      (known as Father of Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known
      as Father of Genetic Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster
      (known as Father of Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL),
      Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer/VR, U. of California, Berkeley),
      Prof. Barry Vercoe (Founding member of MIT Media Lab, MIT),
      Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X Window System,
      xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic
      Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program
      Director, U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer,
      U. of Southern California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director
      and Consultant), Prof. Jun Liu (Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.),
      Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi
      (Head, NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate
      Director, Project Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab,
      CalTech/NASA), and many other distinguished speakers. To get a
      feeling about the conferences' atmosphere, see the 2010 delegates
      photos available at: www.pixagogo.com/1676934789
       
      An important mission of WORLDCOMP is "Providing a unique platform
      for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars,
      researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress
      makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with
      diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations,
      government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the
      world. The congress also attempts to connect participants from
      institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those
      who are affiliated with institutions that have research as their
      main mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its
      institution and geography diversity objectives."
       
      One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of
      affiliated research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into
      a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common
      time. This model facilitates communication among researchers in
      different branches of computer science, computer engineering,
      and applied computing. The Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary
      and inter-disciplinary research initiatives; ie, facilitating
      increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.
       
       
      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, his/her
      biography, title of session, a 100-word description of the
      topic of the session, the name of the conference the session
      is submitted for consideration (ie, MSV), 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  editor@...
      We would like to receive the session proposals as soon as possible.
       
       
      NEWS:
      Thanks to authors and speakers of last WORLDCOMP congress and members
      of the editorial boards who informed us of the following good news:
      According to "Microsoft Academic Search" (a Microsoft initiative)
      all tracks of WORLDCOMP are listed as worldwide "Top-ranked
      Conferences" (based on various metrics but mainly based on the
      number of citations). You can access "Microsoft Academic Search" and
      specific information extracted from it (in reference to WORLDCOMP's
      individual conferences' names/acronyms and tracks) from the link
      below:
