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 (IKE)    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, IKE'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 due
   July 13-16, 2009:  The 2009 International Conference on Information
                      and Knowledge Engineering (IKE'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 IKE is currently being formed. Those    interested in joining the Program Committee should email Prof. Arabnia

( 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 (IKE) 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:    IKE'09 is an annual research conference about Information and    Knowledge Engineering. 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.

   IKE'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, ...)
