- SEND ME THE CONFERENCE MATERIAL (PROCEEDINGS+JOURNAL) FROM A PREVIOUS WSEAS CONFERENCE

   You have to pay an extra fee of 100 EUR, if you want to receive
   the Conference Proceedings + Journal/Book with your paper by EXPRESS, SECURE and REGISTERED Mail.
   Due to several failures in the past, we do not use the regular post anylonger, but only 
   EXPRESS, SAFE and REGISTERED post. For this reason, as well as for the whole secretariat support, 
   WSEAS puts an extra fee of 100 EUR. You can send it to WSEAS using the same procedure of the registration and using
   the form that you can find at: http://www.worldses.org/forms/extrafees.doc

-- DO YOU ACCEPT REGISTRATION FEES VIA THE WEB?   

   WSEAS really protects you. 
   As you know, we have installed  the Web Form technology in our 17 servers and it would 
   be easy to permit the web registration. But, what will be happen, 
   if your money goes to some hackers? Please, do not trust 
   INTERNET TRANSACTIONS and do not put the number of your 
   credit card in any web form. There are several risks. 
   Do not send money to conference organizers (outside WSEAS) via web forms. 
   It is of high risk. The only safe procedure is the procedure of WSEAS. 

-- DOES WSEAS ACCEPT OVERVIEW PAPERS?  Absolutely not.  WSEAS does not publish overview papers.

-- WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PAPERS THAT I CAN PRESENT AND REGISTER IN A CONFERENCE:  5 (five)

-- IS ONE REGISTRATION ENOUGH IF I HAVE MORE THAN ONE PAPERS ACCEPTED? 
   We have the following algorithm:
   One registration is enough, but justifies publication for you up to 6 pages (totally).
   That means that you have also to pay the extra pages fee
   which is
   ((n1+n2+n3+n4+n5)-6)*100 EUR

   So, you registration must be: 
  
   500 EUR if n1+n2+n3+n4+n5 <= 6

   500 +((n1+n2+n3+n4+n5)-6)*100 EUR if n1+n2+n3+n4+n5> 6

    where n1 is the number of your pages in the first paper
          n2 is the number of your pages in the second paper
          n3 is the number of your pages in the third paper
          n4 is the number of your pages in the fourth paper
          n5 is the number of your pages in the fifth paper

   In the above calculation, WSEAS members must replace the "500 EUR" with "450 EUR".


-- WHY, SOME TIMES, THE WSEAS CONFERENCES HAVE SO WIDE TOPICS?  WSEAS is the 
   Society that promotes the development and the unified consideration of new mathematical 
   methods and computational techniques as well as their applications in science and engineering. So, it is expected to have cross-disciplinary events many times worldwide. This is the unique role of WSEAS among the international academic community.

-- CAN I HAVE DISCOUNT IN THE REGISTRATION FEES OR FINANCIAL SUPPORT? WSEAS does offer a student registration fee for 
   students that do not present a paper. See the web page of the conference. We cannot give other discounts.  We are sorry that we could not be of more help.


- I CANNOT ATTENED (or I COULD NOT ATTEND) THE CONFERENCE THAT I SENT THE PAPER. 
   CAN I TRANSFER MY PAPER TO ANOTHER WSEAS CONFERENCE?

   No, you cannot! If you do not show up in a WSEAS
   conference, we will publish your paper in the proceedings
   plus Journal or Book (if your paper will be also published
   in Journal or Book after the Conference procedings), provided that at least an author from your paper
   will make registration for this conference. 
   Find the file from the folder: http://www.worldses.org/forms
   Also, you have to pay the extra fee of 100 EUR, if you want us to sent to you
   the Conference Proceedings + Journal with your paper
   by SECURE and REGISTERED Post
   See the file: http://www.worldses.org/forms/extrafees.doc

WARNING -- ALERT

please, be careful, we have been informed by some colleagues that some other
conference organizations (outside WSEAS) and individual organizers (outside WSEAS) 
use to promise Journals publications in order to attract papers for their conferences. 
We know for them that after the conference, (atttention: other organizers, not WSEAS)
they disappear and they do not publish your papers in their Journals.
On the other hand they use to promise publication in Journals (copying the policy of WSEAS with fraud)
but the journals are unknown or even when they are known, they never publish papers
on them. Please, be careful. 

Also, they promise benefits to Session Organizers copying WSEAS, but they cannot provide
them, because usually their sessions fail. We have already received complaints about that. 

If you were a victim in such great frauds, please, inform us directly to inform all the 
other colleagues of WSEAS mailing lists. We will keep your name and mailing address secret of course.

Be careful. Only in WSEAS, we can and do publish your papers in the CD-ROM Proceedings plus Journals or Books
because we have NOW our own factory in Athens, GREECE.
In WSEAS, we have a real professional organization and not an "eventual amateur".

Other Complaints for organizations (we repeat: outside WSEAS)
CITATION INDEXES: In WSEAS and only in WSEAS, it is a reality that after a 
conference, your paper (if it is accepted and regstered of course)
it is included in all the major science citation indexes.
ISI, ELSEVIER, CSA, AMS. Mathematical Reviews, ELP, NLG, Engineering Index 
Directory of Published Proceedings, INSPEC (IEE).
We have the letters/proofs from all of them.

Unfortunately, they exist some "others" that in an attempt to copy the
WSEAS promise publication in Citation Indexes, but
they are NOT in the Citation Indexes. Please, report us of your complaints. 


NOTE THAT ONLY IN WSEAS CONFERENCES YOU CAN HAVE PROCEEDINGS 

1) Special Issue in a Journal or \Book (after further review)
2) CD-ROM and 
3) Web Publishing

Our members and registered authors in conferences 
can browse and DOWNLOAD free all
the WSEAS Proceedings via:

WSEAS Publications participate now in all major science citation indexes.
