    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. David Cheriton (Stanford U.), 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.

    SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

    Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper
    (about 5 to 7 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.

    IMPORTANT DATES:

    Feb. 25, 2008: Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages)
    March 25, 2008: Notification of acceptance
    April 25, 2008: Camera-Ready papers and Registration due
    July 14-17, 2008: The 2008 World Congress in Computer Science,
    Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
    (WORLDCOMP'08 - 25 joint conferences)

    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, 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
    walking distance from most other attractions (recreational
    destinations, Golf courses, ...)
