      Dear Colleagues:
      Please share the announcement below with those who might be interested
      Thank you very much.
      Best regards, Organizing Committee
                    CALL FOR PAPERS - Deadline: May 23, 2011
               The 2011 International Conference on Computer Design
                         July 18-21, 2011, Las Vegas, USA
      This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to submit
      their papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers".
      You are invited to submit a full paper (about 7 pages) for consideration
      (see instructions below). Full papers will be considered for both,
      oral presentation and publication in the conference proceedings as full
      papers. In addition, after the conference, selected authors will be asked
      to provide an extended version of their papers for publication consideration
      in research books to be published and indexed by Springer as well as by
      various journals. For a few examples of recent books and journal issues
      based on WORLDCOMP (CDES is an important track of WORLDCOMP, a federated
      congress in CS and CE), see the links below: (indexed by Medline, Scopus,
      EMBASE, BIOSIS, Biological Abstracts, CSA, Biological Sciences and Living
      Resources, Biological Sciences, and others):
      + a number of journal special issues published by BMC Genomics:
      http://www.biomedcentral.com .
      Abstract submissions (one/two-page) will be considered for poster
      presentations and one/two-page publication in the proceedings. The
      conference proceedings will be made available in printed book as well as
      CDES proceedings will be indexed by Inspec / IET / The Institute for
      Engineering and Technology, DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others (in the
      past, all tracks of the federated congress, WORLDCOMP, in which CDES
      is part of have also been included in EI Compendex/Elsevier.)
      NOTE - Important:

      The DBLP list of accepted papers of CDES 2010 appears at:
      The main web site of CDES'11 can be found at:
      This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to
      submit their papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers". Therefore,
      authors who have already submitted papers in response to earlier "Call
      For Papers" should IGNORE this announcement.
      Authors who submit papers in response to this announcement, will have
      their papers evaluated for publication consideration in the Final
      Edition of the conference proceedings which will go to press in late
      August 2011 (the conference would then make the necessary arrangements
      to ship the printed proceedings/book to such authors). The Final
      Edition of the conference proceedings will be identical to earlier
      edition except for a number of sections/chapters appended to the
      proceedings/book. The Final Edition will be indexed by Inspec / IET /
      The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP / CS Bibliography,
      and others (in the past, all tracks of the federated congress,
      WORLDCOMP, in which CDES is part of, have also been included in EI
      Compendex/Elsevier.) The proceedings will be published in both, printed
      book/ISBN form as well as online.
      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 May 23, 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, CDES) should be mentioned.
      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).

      CDES 2011 Conference 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
      2,100 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

      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
      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 fields 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.
      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" to
      extract citation data for each individual track of worldcomp using
      the following link: http://academic.research.microsoft.com/
      As of March 4, 2011, the papers published in the proceedings have
      received 14,385 citations which is a higher citation than many
      reputable journals in computer science.
