SAM'11 is an important track of WORLDCOMP which is a federated event.

    SAM'11 Conference is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP). WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries participating at WORLDCOMP Congress. A number of individual research tracks of the Congress have been held for many years; for example, PDPTA has been held annually since 1995 (PDPTA'11 is the 17th annual conference); ERSA has been held annually since 2001 (ERSA'11 is the 11th annual conference); ICAI has been held annually since 1999 (ICAI'11 is the 13th annual conference); SAM has been held annually since 2002 (SAM'11 is the 10th annual conference). Other tracks of WORLDCOMP Congress have similar records.

    The motivation behind this federated congress 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 SAM facilitates communication among researchers from all over the world in different fields of computer science, computer engineering, applied computing, and computational biology. Both inward research (core areas) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and applications) will be covered during the conference. SAM 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.

    SAM'11 will be composed of research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel speakers have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer/architecture, U. of California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as Father of Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of Genetic Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster (known as Father of Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL), Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer/VR, U. of California, Berkeley), Prof. Barry Vercoe (Founding member of MIT Media Lab, MIT), Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X Window System, xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program Director, U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer, U. of Southern California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director and Consultant), Prof. Jun Liu (Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.), Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi (Head, NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate Director, Project Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab, CalTech/NASA), and many other distinguished speakers.
