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 24 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the
   premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective
   fields.  Most of these conferences have been evaluated and determined
   to be top tier research conferences
   (see http://www.cs-conference-ranking.org/index.html for an example).
   We anticipate to have 2000 or more attendees from over 75 countries
   participating in the 2007 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.

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).  E-mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia (address is
   given above).  We would like to receive the proposals by December 29, 2006.

Submission of Papers:

   Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft/full paper
   (about 5 to 8 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to
   H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 20, 2007. 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, email address, and telephone number for each author.
   The first page should also identify the name of the author who will
   be presenting the paper (if accepted) 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.

Members of Program and 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 compiled. 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, sunning
   decks, Easy River water ride, wave pool, lighted tennis courts,
   health spa (with workout equipment, whirlpool, sauna, ...),
   nightly shows, snack bars, many restaurants, shopping area, bars, ...
   Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a day and most are suitable
   for families and children.  The negotiated room rate for conference
   attendees is very reasonable.  The hotel is within walking distance
   from most other attractions (major shopping areas, night clubs, free
   street shows, Golf courses, ...).
