We anticipate having between 1,800 and 2,000 participants in the federated
event that this conference is part of. You are invited to submit a paper
for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in PRINTED
conference BOOKS/proceedings (with unique international ISBN number) and
will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in
science citation databases that track citation frequency/data. In addition,
like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) will
appear in journals and edited research books; publishers include, Springer,
Elsevier, BMC, and others). See the web link below for a small subset of
such publications: (some of these books and journal special issues have
already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and/or
identified as “Highly Accessed” by publishers and/or science citation
index trackers.)

Last year, the federated event that this conference is part of had attracted
speakers/authors/participants affiliated with over 178 different
universities (including many from the top 50 ranked institutions), major
IT corporations (including, Microsoft, Google, Apple, SAP, Facebook, Oracle,
Amazon, Yahoo, Samsung, IBM, Ebay, GE, Siemens, Philips, Ericsson, BAE
Systems, Hitachi, NTT, …), major corporations (including, Exxon Mobil,
Johnson & Johnson, JPMorgan Chase, PetroChina, GlaxoSmithKline, HSBC,
Airbus, Boeing, Hyundai, …), government research agencies (NSF, NIH, DoE,
AirForce, NSA National Security Agency, …), US national laboratories
(including, NASA, ANL, LLNL, Sandia, ORNL, Lawrence Berkeley National
Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, National Cancer Institute, NIST,  …), and
a number of Venture Capitalists as well as speakers discussing Intellectual
Property issues.
