    SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

    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 March 10, 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, MSV) that the paper is being submitted for
    consideration must be stated on the first page.

    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).

    All proceedings of WORLDCOMP will be published and indexed in:
    Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology,
    DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others. The printed proceedings
    will be available for distribution on site at the conference.

    In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected
    authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their
    papers for publication in a number of research books being
    proposed/contracted with various publishers (such as, Springer,
    Elsevier, ...) - these books would be composed after the
    conference. Also, many chairs of sessions and workshops will
    be forming journal special issues to be published after the
    conference.

    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 objectives."

    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 branches 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.


    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, his/her
    biography, title of session, a 100-word description of the
    topic of the session, the name of the conference the session
    is submitted for consideration (ie, MSV), 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
    We would like to receive the session proposals as soon as possible.


    NEWS:
    Thanks to authors and speakers of last WORLDCOMP congress and members
    of the editorial boards who informed us of the following good news:
    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" and
    specific information extracted from it (in reference to WORLDCOMP's
    individual conferences' names/acronyms and tracks) from the link
