GENERAL CHAIR/COORDINATOR:

   H. R. Arabnia, PhD
   The University of Georgia
   Department of Computer Science
   415 Graduate Studies Research Center
   Athens, Georgia 30602-7404, USA

   Tel: (706) 542-3480
   Fax: (706) 542-2966
   E-mail: hra at cs.uga.edu

PURPOSE / HISTORY:

   This set of joint conferences is the largest annual
   gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
   engineering and applied computing.  Each of the 28 joint
   conferences in WORLDCOMP is the premier conference for
   presentation of advances in their respective fields.

   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 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.

PROPOSAL FOR ORGANIZING TECHNICAL SESSIONS:

   Each technical session will have at least 6 paper
   presentations (from different authors).  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 technical sessions should include
   the following information: name and address (+ E-mail)
   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).  Mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia
   (address is given above); E-mail submissions are preferred.
   We would like to receive the proposals by January 10, 2006.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

   Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft
   paper (about 5 to 8 pages - single space, font size of 10
   to 12) to H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 20, 2006. E-mail submissions
   in MS document or PDF formats are preferable (Fax or postal
   submissions are also fine.)  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, E-mail address, telephone number, &
   Fax number for each author.  The first page should also
   include the name of the author who will be presenting
   the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords.
   Also, the name of the conference that the paper is being
   submitted to must be mentioned on the first page.

   Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
   clarity, and soundness.  Each paper will be refereed by
   two researchers in the topical area.  The Camera-Ready
   papers will be reviewed by one person.

MEMBERS OF PROGRAM & ORGANIZING COMMITTEES:

   The Program Committee includes members of chapters
   of World Academy of Science (chapters: supercomputing;
   scientific computing; artificial intelligence; 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 at cs.uga.edu) the following information:
   Name, affiliation and position, complete mailing address,
   email address, tel/fax numbers, a short biography
   together with research interests and the name of the
   conference offering to help with.

LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

   The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort
   hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other
   near-by hotels).  The Monte Carlo Resort is a mega hotel
   with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms.
   The hotel 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 & kiddie pools, sunning decks, Easy River
   water ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis
   courts, health spa (with workout equipment, whirlpool,
   sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality game rooms, nightly
   shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping area,
   bars, ...  Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a
   day & most are suitable for families & children.  The
   negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very
   reasonable.  The hotel is within walking distance from
   most other attractions (major shopping areas, recreational
   destinations, fine dining & night clubs, free street
   shows, ...).
