USEFUL WEB LINKS: The DBLP list of accepted papers of IKE 2010 appears at: http://www.informatik.uni-trier.de/~ley/db/conf/ike/ike2010.html The main web site of IKE'11 can be found at: http://www.worldacademyofscience.org/worldcomp11/ws/conferences/ike11

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS: This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to submit their papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers". Therefore,
authors who have already submitted papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers" should IGNORE this announcement.

Authors who submit papers in response to this announcement, will have their papers evaluated for publication consideration in the Final Edition of the conference proceedings which will go to press in late August 2011 (the conference would then make the necessary arrangements to ship the printed proceedings/book to such authors). The Final Edition of the conference proceedings will be identical to earlier edition except for a number of sections/chapters appended to the proceedings/book. The Final Edition will be indexed by Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others (in the past, all tracks of the federated congress, WORLDCOMP, in which IKE is part of, have also been included in EI Compendex/Elsevier.) The proceedings will be published in both, printed
book/ISBN form as well as online.

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 May 23, 2011 and they must be in either
MS doc (but not docx) 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 final papers for publication.) 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. 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 (ie, IKE) should be mentioned.

The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.

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 will be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject); often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees by using a double-blinded review process. In addition, all papers whose authors included 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).

as Father of Genetic Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster
(known as Father of Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL),
Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer/VR, U. of California, Berkeley), Prof. Barry Vercoe (Founding member of MIT Media Lab, MIT), Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X Window System, xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program Director, U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer, U. of Southern California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director and Consultant), Prof. Jun Liu (Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.), Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi

Director, Project Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab, CalTech/NASA), and many other distinguished speakers. To get a feeling about the conferences' atmosphere, see the 2010 delegates photos available at: www.pixagogo.com/1676934789

An important mission of WORLDCOMP is "Providing a unique platform for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives."

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.

According to "Microsoft Academic Search" (a Microsoft initiative) all tracks of WORLDCOMP are listed as worldwide "Top-ranked Conferences" (based on various metrics but mainly based on the number of citations). You can access "Microsoft Academic Search" to extract citation data for each individual track of worldcomp using the following link: http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ As of March 4, 2011, the papers published in the proceedings have received 14,385 citations which is a higher citation than many reputable journals in computer science.
