MEASURABLE SCIENTIFIC IMPACT OF CONGRESS:
As of March 14, 2013, papers published in Congress proceedings that ICWN is part of, have received 27,591 citations (includes 3,342 self-citations). Citation data obtained from http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ .
SUBMISSION OF REGULAR PAPERS:
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 April 20, 2013 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 (ie, ICWN) must also 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 would be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject); often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees. Papers whose authors include a member of the conference program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded review process. (Papers deemed to be philosophical, essay type, or about controversial topics/applications will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels/presentation).
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 include: relevant Elsevier indexing products (SCI Elsevier products include, among others: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; Engineering Village, www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com; and others); Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit, Qwam, and STN International); and others.
The printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at the conference - online/soft versions will also be made available world-wide.
In addition to the above, we have arranged two new book series; one with Elsevier publishers (Transactions on Computer Science and Applied Computing) and another with Springer publishers (Transactions of Computational Science and Computational Intelligence). After the conference, a significant number of authors of accepted papers of our congress, will be given the opportunity to submit the extended version of their papers for publication consideration in these books. We anticipate having between 10 to 20 books a year in each of these book series projects. Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, Ei village, SCI, ...).
SUBMISSION OF POSTER PAPERS:
Poster papers can be 2 pages long. Authors are to follow the same instructions that appear above (see, SUBMISSION OF REGULAR PAPERS) except for the submission is limited to 2 pages. On the first page, the author should state that "This paper is being submitted as a poster". Poster papers (if accepted) will be published if and only the author of the accepted paper wishes to do so.
ICWN is an international conference that serves researchers, scholars, professionals, students, and academicians who are looking to both foster working relationships and gain access to the latest research results.
It is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of other research conferences; namely, The 2013 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP). The Congress is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have 2,100 or more attendees from over 85 countries.
The 2013 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.

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.
