Welcome to 2011 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP'11) website. 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.

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.
You are invited to submit a full paper for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in the respective conference proceedings. The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology, DBLP / Computer Science Bibliography, and others. Like prior years, extended versions of selected papers will appear in journals and edited research books (book project proposals are being prepared for Springer, Elsevier, ...).
For a few examples of recent books and journal issues composed in recent months (based on WORLDCOMP/BIOCOMP activities), see:
Indexing for the above books included: Medline, Scopus, EMBASE, BIOSIS, Biological Abstracts, CSA, Biological Sciences & Living Resources, Biological Sciences, and others. As well as a number of journal special issues published by BMC Genomics:
Indexing of the above journal special issues included: PubMed, MEDLINE, BIOSIS, CAS, EMBASE, Scopus, Zoological Record, CABI, Thomson Reuters (ISI) and Google Scholar.
The list of sponsors of WORLDCOMP 2011 is currently being compiled. The Academic Sponsors of the last offering of WORLDCOMP (July 2010), included: research labs and centers affiliated 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; University of Iowa; University of North Dakota; NDSU-CIIT Green Computing & Comm. Lab.; University of Siegen, Germany; UMIT, Austria; SECLAB (University of Naples Federico II + University of Naples Parthenope + Second University of Naples, Italy); National Institute for Health Research; World Academy of Biomedical Sciences and Technologies; Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia; International Society of Intelligent Biological Medicine (ISIBM); The International Council on Medical and Care Compunetics; Eastern Virginia Medical School & the American College of Surgeons, USA. Corporate Co-Sponsors included (in previous offerings of the congress): Intel, Google, HP, SuperMicro, Salford Systems, Synplicity, NIIT, OLPC (One Laptop Per Child), and others.
The last offering of WORLDCOMP (2010) attracted almost 2,000 computer science and engineering researchers from 81 countries. It is anticipated that WORLDCOMP'11 will attract over 2,000 participants. The Congress is composed of 22 major conferences; each conference has its own program committee as well as referees – attendees will have full access to all 22 conferences' sessions, tracks, and planned tutorials. A number of individual research tracks of WORLDCOMP have been held for many years; for example, PDPTA has been held annually since 1995 (PDPTA'11 is the 17th annual conference); ERSA has been held annually since 2001 (ERSA'11 is the 11th annual conference); ICAI has been held annually since 1999 (ICAI'11 is the 13th annual conference); other tracks of WORLDCOMP Congress have similar records. All conferences will be held simultaneously (same location and dates: July 18-21, 2011, Las Vegas, USA). Each conference will have its own proceedings. All proceedings/books will be indexed.
We look forward to seeing you at WORLDCOMP 2011.
