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 27, 2012 and must be in either
MS doc or pdf formats (about 7 pages including all figures, tables, and
references - 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. The name of
the conference that the paper is being submitted for consideration must
be stated on the first page of the paper (ie, ICOMP) as well as a 100 to
150-word abstract. The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers (if
accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.

Authors whose papers are ACCEPTED will be instructed to upload their papers
to a particular web site for publication - the uploaded papers to the
publication web site will only be checked for correct typesetting.

The proceedings will be published in printed conference books (ISBN) and
will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in
science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each
published paper (science citation databases such as: Inspec / IET / The
Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for
Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (covers the core
scientific literature in Science; about 90% of inclusions are journals;
only about 9% are proceedings; the set of proceedings that ICOMP is part
of has been selected to be among the 9% - accessable from INIST, Datastar,
Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit, Qwam, and STN International); and others.
Though, there is no guarantee that the proceedings will also be included in
EI Compendex/Elsevier indexings, in the past, the proceedings that ICOMP
was part of were included in these databases. Therefore, we will also be
sending the proceedings for indexing procedures to EI Compendex/Elsevier.

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected authors will be
invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in a
number of research books contracted with various publishers. These books
will be composed after the conference. Also, many chairs of tracks will be
forming journal special issues to be published after the conference.

Note that 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 soon after the
conference (the conference would then make the necessary arrangements to ship
the printed proceedings/books 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. 6021

Submission of Poster Papers:

Poster papers can be 2 pages long. Authors are to follow the same
that appear above. On the first page, the author should state that "This
is being submitted as a poster for ICOMP". Poster papers (if accepted) will
be published if and only if the author of the accepted poster wishes to have
his/her poster published as a 2-page extended abstract.)


ICOMP conference is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a
number of other federated research conferences (World Congress in Computer
Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing). This federated
is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
engineering and applied computing. The congress will be composed of research
presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel
discussions, and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel
speakers have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer, architecture,
U. of
California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as Father of
Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of Genetic Algorithms; U. of
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,
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 (Head, NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and
Associate Director, Project Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab,
CalTech/NASA; Director, NASA's JPL Solar System Exploration), Prof. David
Parnas (Fellow of IEEE, ACM, RSC, CAE, GI; Dr.h.c.: ETH Zurich, Prof.
McMaster U. and U. of Limerick), Prof. Eugene H. Spafford (Executive
CERIAS and Professor, Purdue University), Dr. Sandeep Chatterjee (Vice
President & Chief Technology Officer, SourceTrace Systems, Inc.), and many
other distinguished speakers. To get a feeling about the conferences'
atmosphere, see the 2011 delegates photos

An important mission of the congress 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.
The list of co-sponsors of 2012 meeting is Currently being prepared;

The congress proceedings enjoy a high number of citations. In total, over
25,600 citations have been made (so far) to papers published in the
of the federated congress. The link below contains the url's to the citation
data for each track (each link is a live search and so it may take a few
