Dear Colleagues:
We would greatly appreciate if you would share the announcement
below with those who might be interested.  We anticipate having about
2,100 attendees from 85 countries.
Best regards, Organizing Committee
          CALL FOR PAPERS - Deadline:  May 23, 2011
        The 2011 World Congress in Computer Science,
        Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
                  July 18-21, 2011, USA
This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to submit
their papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers".
You are invited to submit a full paper (about 7 pages) for consideration
(see instructions below). Full papers will be considered for both,
oral presentation and publication in the conference proceedings as full
papers. In addition, after the conference, selected authors will be asked
to provide an extended version of their papers for publication consideration
in research books to be published and indexed by Springer as well as by
various journals. For a few examples of recent books and journal issues
formed based on just one track of WORLDCOMP, see the links below:
+ a number of journal special issues published by BMC Genomics: .
Abstract submissions (one/two-page) will be considered for poster
presentations and one/two-page publication in the proceedings. The
conference proceedings will be made available in printed book as well as
Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering and Technology,
DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others (in the past, all tracks of this
federated congress have also been included in EI Compendex/Elsevier.)
NOTE - Important:
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. (Those who have been
notified that their papers have been accepted, MUST still follow the
instructions that were emailed to them; including meeting the deadlines
mentioned in the notifications that were sent to them).
WORLDCOMP'11 is composed of a number of tracks (joint conferences,
tutorials, and workshops); all will be held simultaneously, same
location and dates: July 18-21, 2011. For the complete list of
joint conferences, see below.
May 23, 2011:       Submission of papers for evaluation
June 6, 2011:       Notification of acceptance/not-acceptance
June 21, 2011:      Registration
July 18-21, 2011:   WORLDCOMP'11 Congress (all joint-conferences)
July 30, 2011:      Camera-Ready Papers Due for publication in the
                    Final Edition of the proceedings.
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 this federated congress 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:
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
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 (see the list below) that the paper is being submitted for
consideration must be stated on the first page.
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).

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
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:
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.
