CALL FOR LATE BREAKING PAPERS, POSITION PAPERS, ABSTRACTS, POSTERS


The 2014 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, & Applied Computing

July 21-24, 2014, Las Vegas, USA

www.world-academy-of-science.org/


IMPORTANT NOTE:

    This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to submit their papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers". Therefore, authors who have already submitted papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers" should IGNORE this announcement. (Those who have been notified that their papers have been accepted, MUST still follow the instructions that were emailed to them; including meeting the deadlines mentioned in the notifications that were sent to them).

INVITATION:
SUBMISSION OF LATE BREAKING PAPERS, POSITION PAPERS, ABSTRACTS/POSTERS:

    In response to this announcement, authors are given the opportunity to submit their papers for evaluation in one of the following three categories:
    • Late Breaking Papers: describe late-breaking/recent developments in the field. The maximum number of pages is 7. Please write the following on the first page of your submission "name of conference: LATE BREAKING PAPER". If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a formal session.
    • Position Papers: enable discussions on emerging topics without the experimentation normally present in an academic paper. Commonly, such papers will substantiate the opinions or positions put forward with evidence from an extensive objective discussion of the topic. The maximum number of pages is 4. Please write the following on the first page of your submission "name of conference: POSITION PAPER". If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 4 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a discussion/poster session.
    • Abstract/Poster Papers: describe research roadmaps (similar to PhD plan or PhD prospectus). The maximum number of pages is 2. Please write the following on the first page of your submission "name of conference: ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPER". If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 2 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a discussion/poster session.

    Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers (see above for paper categories) by uploading them to the evaluation web site at: http://world-comp.org . Submissions must be uploaded by June 5, 2014 and must be in either MS doc or pdf formats. 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.

    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 would be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject); often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees. Papers whose authors include a member of the conference program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded review process. (Papers deemed to be philosophical, essay type, or about controversial topics/applications will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels/presentation).

    The proceedings will be published in printed conference books (ISBN) and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each published paper. Science citation databases include: Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit, Qwam, & STN International); and others. The proceedings/books of this congress have been evaluated for inclusion into major science citation index databases. We are happy to report that so far, the evaluation board of science citation index databases have approved the indexing, integrating, and inclusion of the following conference tracks into relevant indexing databases (indexing databases include, among others: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village, www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com; and others): BIOCOMP, DMIN, GCA, ICAI, ICOMP, ICWN, IKE, IPCV, PDPTA, and SAM; please see below for the full name of each of these conferences.

    Note that authors who submit papers in response to this announcement, will have their papers evaluated for publication consideration in the Final Edition of the conference proceedings which will go to press soon after the conference (the conference would then make the necessary arrangements to ship the printed proceedings/books to such authors). The Final Edition of the conference proceedings will be identical to earlier edition except for a number of sections/chapters appended to the proceedings/book.

    An important mission of The Congress 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.

TUTORIALS:

    All tutorials are free to conference registrants, the list of tutorials that have been approved so far can be found at: http://www.worldacademyofscience.org/worldcomp14/ws/tutorials We plan to offer more tutorials (in addition to what is already posted on the web). As of the writing of this announcement, the following tutorials have been approved and they will be presented by distinguished speakers:
    • Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) accreditation of Computer Science Program
    • Natural Language in Information Security and Privacy
    • Recommendation Systems for Big Data
    • Energy-Aware Resource Management for Computing Systems
    • Hacking with Kali Linux
    • Cryptography and Network Security
    • First Programming Language in CS Education - The Argument For Scala
    • Fault Tolerance and Beyond
    • Agents at High Seas
    • Actor Parallelism and Akka/Scala
    • Cloud Computing for Big Data Challenges (Cloud Architectures and Big Data Tools)
    • The Use of ICT to Mitigate Income Inequality

    Currently, we are evaluating 6 other proposals and they are in the areas of Big Data and Data Analytics (3 proposals); Entrepreneurial Spirits; Visualization and Datamining; and Computational Biology.
