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. FEATURED 2008 KEYNOTE LECTURES: Prof. David A. Patterson University of California at Berkeley, California, USA Member, National Academy of Engineering Member, National Academy of Sciences Fellow of IEEE, ACM, and AAAS Shared (with John Hennessy) the IEEE John von Neumann Medal Prof. Ophir Frieder Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA The Royden B. Davis, SJ, Chair in Interdisciplinary Studies at Georgetown University, IITRI Chair Professor of Computer Science at Illinois Institute of Technology, Director, Information Retrieval lab (IIT) Fellow of IEEE, ACM, and AAAS (in addition to the above, each of the 25 conferences will have at least one keynote and one invited lecture). FEATURED TUTORIAL: Prof. H. J. Siegel Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA Abell Endowed Chair Distinguished Professor of ECE Professor of Computer Science Director, CSU Information Science and Technology Center (ISTeC) Fellow of IEEE and ACM (in addition to the above, there will also be 11 other tutorials). SUBMISSION OF PAPERS: Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (about 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 25, 2008. email submissions in MS document or PDF formats are preferable (Fax or postal submissions are also fine.) All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for publication.) The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal address, email address, and telephone number 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. Finally, the name of the conference that the paper is being submitted to must be stated on the first page. Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two experts in the field who are independent of the conference program committee. The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of the program committee who will recommend a decision to the chair of the track that the paper has been submitted to. The chair will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee. IMPORTANT DATES: Feb. 25, 2008: Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages) March 25, 2008: Notification of acceptance April 25, 2008: Camera-Ready papers and Registration due July 14-17, 2008: The 2008 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP'08 - 25 joint conferences) GENERAL CO-CHAIR / COORDINATOR: Prof. Hamid R. Arabnia Editor-in-Chief, The Journal of Supercomputing (Springer) Vice President, Int'l Society of Intelligent Biological Medicine The University of Georgia Department of Computer Science 415 Graduate Studies Research Center Athens, Georgia 30602-7404, USA Tel: (706) 542-3480 Fax: (706) 542-2966 E-mail: hra_(on)_cs.uga.edu MEMBERS OF PROGRAM AND ORGANIZING COMMITTEES: The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; AI; imaging science; databases; simulation; software engineering; embedded systems; internet and web technologies; communications; computer security; and bioinformatics.) The Program Committee for individual conferences is currently being compiled. Those interested in joining the Program Committee should email H. R. Arabnia (hra_(on)_cs.uga.edu) the following information: Name, affiliation and position, complete mailing address, email address, a short biography together with research interests and the name of the conference offering to help with. Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of departments, deans and provosts. LOCATION OF CONFERENCES: The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms. It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport. This hotel has many recreational attractions, including: spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows, a number of restaurants, ... The negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within walking distance from most other attractions.
