The Congress is composed of a number of tracks (joint-conferences, tutorials,
sessions, workshops, poster and panel discussions); all will be held
simultaneously, same location and dates: July 27-30, 2015. For the complete
list of joint conferences, see below.


January 30, 2015:  Workshop / Session Proposals
March 31, 2015:    Submission of full papers (about 7 pages)
April 24, 2015:    Notification of acceptance (+/- two days)
May 15, 2015:      Final papers + Copyright + Registration
July 27-30, 2015:  The 2015 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer
                   Engineering, and Applied Computing
                   (including all affiliated federated conferences).


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at: . Submissions must
be uploaded by the due date (see IMPORTANT DATES) and must be in either
MS doc or pdf formats (about 7 pages including all figures, tables, and
references.) 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; these
formatting instructions appear at: and they conform
to the two-column IEEE style format). 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 as well as a maximum
of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the content of the paper.
The first page should also identify the name of the Contact/Corresponding
author together with his/her professional email address. A 100 to
150-word abstract should appear on the first page. Authors are to
conform to the common CODE OF ETHICS FOR AUTHORS (The document for the
Code of Ethics is available on the submission web site.)

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. (Essay/philosophical
papers will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).

The proceedings will be published in printed conference books (ISBN) and
will also be made available online. The printed proceedings/books will
be available for distribution on site at the conference. The proceedings
will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation
frequency/data for each published paper. The proceedings/books of this
congress have been evaluated for inclusion into major science citation
index databases. We are happy to report that so far, the evaluation
board of science citation index databases have approved the indexing,
integrating, and inclusion of the following conference tracks into
relevant indexing databases (indexing databases include, among others:
Scopus, Engineering Village, EMBASE, and others): BIOCOMP, DMIN, GCA,
ICAI, ICOMP, ICWN, IKE, IPCV, PDPTA, and SAM.  All proceedings are also
approved for inclusion into EBSCO (, one of the largest
subject index systems.

In addition to the above, we have arranged two new book series (multiple
books in each series); one with Elsevier publishers (Emerging Trends in
Computer Science and Applied Computing) and another with Springer publishers
(Transactions of Computational Science and Computational Intelligence).
After the conference (the process may take 12 to 18 months), 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 and 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,; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village,; EMBASE,; and others). For a recent and a
very small subset of the books (and journal special issues) that have
been published based on the extended versions of many of our congress
papers, see the link below:


Poster papers can be 2 pages long. Authors are to follow the same
instructions that appear above (see, SUBMISSION OF DRAFT PAPERS FOR
EVALUATION) except that 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
as such, if and only if the author of the accepted poster wishes to
do so.


Each conference (see below for the list) is composed of a number of tracks.
A track can be a session, a workshop, or a symposium. A session will have
at least 6 papers; a workshop at least 12 papers; and a symposium at least
18 papers. Track chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their tracks,
including: soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, ... The names of track
chairs will appear as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and
on the cover of the printed books (and indexed in science databases as such).
Track chairs who attract a sufficient number of solid papers can propose
to edit books with a major publisher based on the extended versions of the
papers accepted in their tracks (the congress will facilitate and help such
track chairs to get the publisher's approval).

Proposals to organize tracks (sessions, workshops, or symposiums) should
include the following information: name and address (+ email) of proposer,
his/her biography, title of track, a 100-word description of the topic of
the track, the name of the conference the track is submitted for
consideration (i.e., PDPTA, IPCV, ...), and a short description on how
the track will be advertised (in most cases, track proposers solicit papers
from colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the track proposer).
E-mail your track proposal to . We would like to
receive the track proposals as soon as possible (see IMPORTANT DATES).

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;
i.e., facilitating increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across


As of December 8, 2014, papers published in the conference proceedings
that have been held as part of this congress, have received over
27,878 citations (includes 3,346 self-citations). Citation data is
obtained from Microsoft Academic Search. The citation data does not
even include more than 15,000 other citations to papers in conferences
whose first offerings were initiated by worldcomp. Individual proceedings/
books (2013 & 2014) of the federated congress can be purchased from major
science book distributors: (such as: EBSCO and others):
