SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:    Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by    uploading them to .    Submissions must be received by March 11, 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.

IMPORTANT DATES:    March 11, 2009: Extended deadline for Submission of papers

                      (about 5 to 7 pages)
   April 9, 2009:     Notification of acceptance
   May 1, 2009:       Camera-Ready papers and Registration due
   July 13-16, 2009:  The 2009 World Congress in Computer Science,
                      Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
                      (WORLDCOMP'09 - 22 joint conferences)

TUTORIALS:    12 to 15 tutorials are currently being planned - all tutorials are    free to conference registrants. Tutorial subjects include:    various aspects of supercomputing (parallel and distributed systems    and processing), visualization, preparation for teaching online    courses, various areas of security, sensor networks, bioinformatics    for computer scientists, web services for mobile and wireless systems,

   ABET accreditation as it relates to computing, inverse problems in    computer vision, data mining, ...

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.

   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. 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); and many other distinguished
   speakers. For this year's conference, the keynote speakers include:

   Prof. Ian Foster (Father of Grid Computing), Dr. Eric Drexler
(Father of Nanotechnology), Prof. Brian Athey (Head, NIH National
   Center for Computational Medicine & Biology), Dr. Jose Munoz (Deputy

   Director, National Science Foundation Office of Cyberinfrastructure),

   and many other distinguished speakers.

   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.

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, ...)
