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 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the    premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective

   fields. We anticipate to have 2,400 or more attendees from over 85    countries participating in the 2009 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'09 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. David A. Patterson (U. of California, Berkeley);    Prof. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H. Holland
(U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. Brian D. Athey (U. of Michigan,
   Ann Arbor), Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State U.); Prof. Barry Vercoe

(MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California, Berkeley);
   Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys (OLPC + developer of X    Window); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and    many other distinguished speakers.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:    Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by    uploading them to .    Submissions must be received by Feb. 25, 2009 and they must be in    either MS doc or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - single space,    font size of 10 to 12). 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, and email address 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.

PROPOSAL FOR ORGANIZING SESSIONS/WORKSHOPS:    Each session will have at least 6 paper presentations from    different authors (12 papers in the case of workshops). The    session chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their    sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, ...    The names of session chairs will appear as Associate Editors in    the conference proceedings and on the cover of the books.

   Proposals to organize sessions should include the following    information: name and address (+ email) of proposer, title of    session, a 100-word description of the topic of the session,    the name of the conference the session is submitted for    consideration, and a short description on how the session will    be advertised (in most cases, session proposers solicit papers    from colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the    session proposer). email your session proposal to H. R. Arabnia
(address is given above). We would like to receive the proposals
   by January 16, 2009.
