    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 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the
    premier conferences for presentation of advances in their
    respective
    fields. We anticipate to have 2,400 or more attendees from over 85
    countries participating in the 2009 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.

    WORLCOMP'09 will be composed of research presentations, keynote
    lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and
    poster presentations. In recent past, keynote and/or tutorial
    speakers
    included: Prof. David A. Patterson (U. of California, Berkeley);
    Prof. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H. Holland
    (U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. Brian D. Athey (U. of Michigan,
    Ann Arbor), Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State U.); Prof. Barry
    Vercoe
    (MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California, Berkeley);
    Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys (OLPC + developer of X
    Window); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and
    many other distinguished speakers.

    SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

    Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by
    uploading them to http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/ .
    Submissions must be received by Feb. 25, 2009 and they must be in
    either MS doc 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 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, 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 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.

    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). email your session proposal to H. R. Arabnia
    (address is given above). We would like to receive the proposals
    by January 16, 2009.

    of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; AI;
    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
    () the following information: Name, affiliation
    and position, complete mailing address, email address, a short
    biography together with research interests and the name of the
    conference offering to help with.
    Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks
    are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and
    practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research
    laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of
    departments, deans and provosts.

    LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

    The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas,
    Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is
    a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000
    rooms. It 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, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows,
    a number of restaurants, ... The negotiated room rate for
    conference attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within
