PAPER EVALUATION WEB SITE:

This is the web site for submission of papers for consideration in any of the following paper categories:



INVITATION:

You are invited to submit a "LATE BREAKING PAPER", "POSITION PAPER", or "ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPER" for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (ISBN) and will also be made available online. In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 35%) of the conference will appear in journals and edited research books (publishers include: Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others); some of these books and journal special issues have already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields. See the link below for a very small subset of the books published mostly based on extended versions of the accepted papers of this congress: http://www.worldacademyofscience.org/worldcomp15/ws/publications . The titles of proceedings of the federated congress have been indexed into the ACM Digital Library ( http://dl.acm.org/ ) which includes bibliographic citations from major publishers in computing.

The Congress is composed of a number of tracks (federated/joint conferences, tutorials, sessions, workshops, poster and panel discussions); all will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: July 27-30, 2015. For the complete list of joint conferences, see below. To get a feeling about the conferences' atmosphere, see some delegates photos available at: http://infinitydempsey.smugmug.com/WorldComp http://worldcomp.phanfare.com/


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

Authors are given the opportunity to submit their papers for evaluation in one of the following three paper categories:

1. 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.

2. 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 5. 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 formal session.

3. 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 by uploading them to the evaluation web site at: http://world-comp.org . Submissions must be uploaded by the due date (see IMPORTANT DATES) 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; these formatting instructions appear at: http://world-comp.org and they conform to the two-column IEEE style format). 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 as well as a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the content of the paper. The first page should also identify the name of the Contact/Corresponding author together with his/her professional email address. A 100 to 150-word abstract should appear on the first page. Authors are to conform to the common CODE OF ETHICS FOR AUTHORS (The document for the Code of Ethics is available on the submission web site.)

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. (Essay/philosophical papers will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).

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. 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, Engineering Village, EMBASE, and others): BIOCOMP, DMIN, GCA, ICAI, ICOMP, ICWN, IKE, IPCV, PDPTA, and SAM. All proceedings are also approved for inclusion into EBSCO ( www.ebsco.com ), one of the largest subject index systems. The titles of proceedings of the federated congress have been indexed into the ACM Digital Library ( http://dl.acm.org/ ) which includes bibliographic citations from major publishers in computing.

In addition to the above, we have arranged two new book series (multiple books in each series); one with Elsevier publishers (Emerging Trends in Computer Science and Applied Computing) and another with Springer publishers (Transactions of Computational Science and Computational Intelligence). After the conference (the process may take 12 to 18 months), a significant number of authors of accepted papers of our congress, will be given the opportunity to submit the extended version of their papers for publication consideration in these books. We anticipate having between 10 and 20 books a year in each of these book series projects. Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com ; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village, www.ei.org ; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com ; and others). For a recent and a very small subset of the books (and journal special issues) that have been published based on the extended versions of many of our congress papers, see the link below:
