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.

  1. The presentation given here seems inconsistent with my knowledge in two areas: computational biology and Artificial Intelligence. It is said that:

    “Many of the 25 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the
    premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective
    fields.”

    But the most famous computational biology conferences seems to be RECOMB, ISMB or ECCB not Biocomp.

    Similarly the most famous AI conferences I know are IJCAI, ECAI or AAAI but not ICAI.

    So ?

  2. We submitted a fake paper to WORLDCOMP 2011 and again (the
    same paper with a modified title) to WORLDCOMP 2012. This paper
    had numerous fundamental mistakes. Sample statements from
    that paper include:

    (1). Binary logic is fuzzy logic and vice versa
    (2). Pascal developed fuzzy logic
    (3). Object oriented languages do not exhibit any polymorphism or inheritance
    (4). TCP and IP are synonyms and are part of OSI model
    (5). Distributed systems deal with only one computer
    (6). Laptop is an example for a super computer
    (7). Operating system is an example for computer hardware

    Also, our paper did not express any conceptual meaning. However, it
    was accepted both the times without any modifications (and without
    any reviews) and we were invited to submit the final paper and a
    payment of $500+ fee to present the paper. We decided to use the
    fee for better purposes than making Prof. Hamid Arabnia (Chairman
    of WORLDCOMP) rich. After that, we received few reminders from
    WORLDCOMP to pay the fee but we never responded.

    We MUST say that you should look at the above website if you have any thoughts
    to submit a paper to WORLDCOMP. DBLP and other indexing agencies
    have stopped indexing WORLDCOMP’s proceedings since 2011 due to its fakeness.
    See http://www.informatik.uni-trier.de/~ley/db/conf/icai/index.html for of one of the
    conferences of WORLDCOMP and notice that there is no listing after 2010. See
    http://sites.google.com/site/dumpconf for comments from well-known researchers
    about WORLDCOMP.
