Reform; Scientific Technologies Corporation; and HoIP - Health without
Boundaries; and others.


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at:
Submissions must be uploaded by March 12, 2012 and they 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 (ie, IPCV) that the paper is
being submitted for consideration must be stated on the first page of the
paper 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.

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 include 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). Proceedings of IPCV 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; worldcomp tracks are 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 were included
in these databases. Therefore, we will also be sending the proceedings for
indexing procedures to EI Compendex/Elsevier. The printed proceedings/books
will be available for distribution on site at the conference.

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 (such as,
Springer, Elsevier, ...) - 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.

engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have 2,100 or more
attendees from over 80 countries. WORLDCOMP 2012 will be composed of
research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials,
panel discussions, and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/

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 (pioneer, 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 Lorge Parnas (Fellow

McMaster U. and U. of Limerick), Prof. Eugene H. Spafford (Executive
Director, 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 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. 39581


As of November 23, 2011, papers published in WORLDCOMP set of proceedings
have received 15,860 citations. In recent months (March to November 2011),
there had been 1,475 citations to WORLDCOMP papers (about 164 citations per
month). The above record is significant (thanks to the authors). As the
result of high impact (based on citations) of WORLDCOMP papers, "Microsoft
Academic Search" has listed each individual track of the congress among its
compiled list of "Top Conferences". The citation record of WORLDCOMP set of
proceedings is in fact higher than the citation data of many reputable
journals in computer science and computer engineering. (The above citation
data does not include citations to WORLDCOMP papers published in 2011; thus,
it is highly probable that the actual number of citations is higher;
citation data was obtained from )
