with (a partial list): University of California, Berkeley; University
of Southern California; University of Texas at Austin; Harvard
University, Cambridge, Massachusetts; Georgia Institute of Technology,
Georgia; Emory University, Georgia; University of Minnesota;

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
them to the evaluation web site at:
Submissions must be uploaded by March 10, 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 (ie, ICWN) 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).

All proceedings of WORLDCOMP will be published and indexed in:
Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology,
DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others. The printed proceedings
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 being
proposed/contracted with various publishers (such as, Springer,
Elsevier, ...) - these books would be composed after the
conference. Also, many chairs of sessions and workshops will
be forming journal special issues to be published after the

The list of Program Committee of ICWN 2010 appears at:

The ICWN 2011 program committee is currently being compiled.
Many who have already joined the committee are renowned leaders,
scholars, researchers, scientists and practitioners of the highest
ranks; many are directors of research labs., members of National
Academy of Engineering, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs
of departments, program directors of research funding agencies,
deans and provosts as well as members of chapters of World Academy
of Science.

Program Committee members are expected to have established a strong

the Program Committee should email the
following information for consideration/evaluation: Name,
affiliation and position, complete mailing address, email address,
a one-page biography that includes research expertise and the name
of the conference (ie, ICWN 2011) offering to help with.


ICWN conference is an important track of a federated research
conference. It is being held jointly (same location and dates)
with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP).
WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer
science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate
to have 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries.

WORLDCOMP 2011 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 Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known
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
(Head, NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate
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:

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 branches 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.


Each session will have at least 6 paper presentations from
different authors (12 papers in the case of workshops). The
session chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their
sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, ...
The names of session chairs will appear as Associate Editors
in the conference proceedings and on the cover of the books.

Proposals to organize sessions should include the following
information: name and address (+ email) of proposer, his/her
biography, title of session, a 100-word description of the
topic of the session, the name of the conference the session
is submitted for consideration (ie, ICWN), and a short
description on how the session will be advertised (in most
cases, session proposers solicit papers from colleagues and
researchers whose work is known to the session proposer).
email your session proposal to
We would like to receive the session proposals by January 16,
2011 (or as soon as possible).

Thanks to authors and speakers of last WORLDCOMP congress and members
of the editorial boards who informed us of the following good news:
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" and
specific information extracted from it (in reference to WORLDCOMP's
individual conferences' names/acronyms and tracks) from the link
