WORLDCOMP'12 Steering Committee's Welcome Continue
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 fields 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.
You are invited to submit a full paper for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in the respective conference proceedings. The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology, and others.
Like prior years, extended versions of selected papers will appear in journals and edited research books (book project proposals are being prepared for Springer, Elsevier, ...).
For a few examples of recent books and journal issues composed in recent months (based on WORLDCOMP/BIOCOMP activities), see:
Indexing of the above journal special issues included: PubMed, MEDLINE, BIOSIS, CAS, EMBASE, Scopus, Zoological Record, CABI, Thomson Reuters (ISI) and Google Scholar.
The list of sponsors of WORLDCOMP 2012 is currently being compiled. The ACADEMIC sponsors of the last offering of WORLDCOMP (2011) included research labs and centers affiliated with (a partial list): University of California, Berkeley; Harvard University; Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); University of Texas at Austin; University of Southern California; Minnesota Supercomputing Institute, University of Minnesota; Germany's University of Siegen; UMIT, Institute of Bioinformatics and Translational Research, Austria; Georgia Institute of Technology; University of Iowa; Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia; University of Naples Federico II, Italy; University of Naples Parthenope, Italy; Second University of Naples, Italy; ICEL, Texas A&M University Com.; University of North Dakota; and others. CORPORATE Co-Sponsors and Sponsors at-large included (a partial list): Intel Corporation; Microsoft Research; Altera Corporation; Pico Computing; SuperMicro Computer, Inc., USA; High Performance Computing for Nanotechnology (HPCNano); International Society of Intelligent Biological Medicine; World Academy of Biomedical Sciences and Technologies; Int'l Council on Medical and Care Compunetics; UK Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform; Scientific Technologies Corporation; and HoIP - Health without Boundaries; and others.
The last offering of WORLDCOMP (2011) attracted almost 2,100 computer science and engineering researchers from 87 countries, including: Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Canada, Chile, China (PRC), Colombia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Hong Kong (PRC), Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Libya, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Palestinian Territory, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sudan, Sultanate of Oman, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Taiwan (ROC), Thailand, The Netherlands, Tunisia, Turkey, UK, USA, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Sharjah), Venezuela, Vietnam, and Yemen.
It is anticipated that WORLDCOMP'12 will attract over 2,100 participants. The Congress is composed of 22 major conferences; each conference has its own program committee as well as referees – attendees will have full access to all 22 conferences' sessions, tracks, and planned tutorials. A number of individual research tracks of WORLDCOMP have been held for many years; for example, PDPTA has been held annually since 1995 (PDPTA'12 is the 18th annual conference); ERSA has been held annually since 2001 (ERSA'12 is the 12th annual conference); ICAI has been held annually since 1999 (ICAI'12 is the 14th annual conference); other tracks of WORLDCOMP Congress have similar records. All conferences will be held simultaneously (same location and dates: July 16-19, 2012, Las Vegas, USA). Each conference will have its own proceedings. All proceedings/books will be indexed.
|  Measurable Scientific Impact of WORLDCOMP|
As of November 23, 2011, papers published in WORLDCOMP set of proceedings have received 15,860 citations. In recent months (March to November 2011), there had been 1,475 citations to WORLDCOMP papers (about 164 citations per month). The above record is significant (thanks to the authors). As the result of high impact (based on citations) of WORLDCOMP papers, "Microsoft Academic Search" has listed each individual track of the congress among its compiled list of "Top Conferences". The citation record of WORLDCOMP set of proceedings is in fact higher than the citation data of many reputable journals in computer science and computer engineering. (The above citation data does not include citations to WORLDCOMP papers published in 2011; thus, it is highly probable that the actual number of citations is higher; citation data was obtained from http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ ). Below, you will find the web links to live citation data for each individual track of WORLDCOMP:
