SUBMISSION OF PAPERS: Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by uploading them to http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/ . 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 (FCS) must be mentioned 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 cochairs.
The co-chairs will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-
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 (ie, FCS'09), 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 Prof. Arabnia (address is given above). We would like to receive the proposals by January 16, 2009.
IMPORTANT DATES: Jan. 16, 2009: Proposals for organizing/chairing sessions/ workshops
Feb. 25, 2009: Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages) March 25, 2009: Notification of acceptance April 25, 2009: Camera-Ready papers and Registration dueJuly 13-16, 2009: The 2009 International Conference on Foundations of
Computer Science (FCS'09)
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; bioinformatics; computational biology; and computer security.) The Program Committee for FCS is currently being formed. Those interested in joining the Program Committee should email Prof. Arabnia
(hra_at_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 (FCS) 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.
PURPOSE / HISTORY: FCS'09 is an annual research conference about Foundations of Computer Science. It is being held jointly (same location and dates)
with a number of other conferences (WORLDCOMP'09). WORLDCOMP is the
largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing.
The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research topics
into a coordinated 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 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, interdisciplinary,
and applications) will be covered during the event.
FCS'09 and WORLDCOMP'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.
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: waterfalls, 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 (recreational destinations, Golf courses, ...)
