    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 25 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the
    premier conferences for presentation of advances in their
    respective
    fields. We anticipate to have 2,600 or more attendees from over 80
    countries participating in the 2008 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'08 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. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H.
    Holland
    (U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State
    U.);
    Prof. Barry Vercoe (MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California,
    Berkeley); Prof. A. K. Dunker (Indiana U. and Purdue U.); Prof. Jun
    Liu
    (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys (developer of X Window, ...); Dr.
    Chris
    Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and many other
    distinguished
    speakers.

    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 proposal to H. R. Arabnia (address
    is given above). We would like to receive the proposals by
    December 10, 2007.

    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. 25, 2008. email 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 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.

    Members of Program and Organizing Committees:

    The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy
    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, 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 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
    walking distance from most other attractions (recreational
    destinations, Golf courses, ...)

    Important Dates:

    Dec. 10, 2007: Proposals for organizing/chairing sessions/
    workshops
    Feb. 25, 2008: Submission of papers (about 5 to 8 pages)
    March 25, 2008: Notification of acceptance
    April 25, 2008: Camera-Ready papers and Registration due

    Topical Scope for each Conference:

    To receive the complete list of topics for each of the
    25 conferences, send an email to or
