Call for Papers with Extended Deadline of Apr. 15, 2015: World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing, Las Vegas, U.S.A., July 27-30, 2015

Dear Colleagues:
Since the original deadline for submission of papers coincided with the Spring
break of many US and Far East institutions, the Steering Committee decided to
extend the deadlines in response to numerous requests. Those authors who met
the original deadlines, will receive the decision on their papers based on
the original dates; i.e., notifications will not be delayed for those authors.
We anticipate having between 1,800 and 2,000 participants in this event.
Thank you, Steering Committee

                          CALL  FOR  PAPERS
         Paper Submission Deadline (EXTENDED): April 15, 2015
                  11:59pm US Eastern Time zone (EDT)

              The 2015 World Congress in Computer Science,
              Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
          July 27-30, 2015, Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, USA



Last year, this congress had attracted speakers/authors affiliated with
over 180 different universities (including many from the top 50 ranked
institutions), many major IT corporations (including, Microsoft, Google,
SAP, Oracle, Amazon, Yahoo, Samsung, IBM, Ebay, GE, Siemens, and others),
government research agencies (NSF, NIH, DoE, AirForce, ...), and national
laboratories (including, NASA, ANL, LLNL, Sandia, ORNL, Lawrence Berkeley
National Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, ...) This year, we also plan to
have representatives of various Venture Capitalists as well as speakers
discussing Intellectual Property issues.

You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted papers
will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (ISBN) and will
also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in science
citation databases that track citation frequency/data. In addition, like
prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 35%) of the
conference will appear in journals and edited research books (publishers
include: Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others); some of these books and
journal special issues have already received the top 25% downloads in
their respective fields. See the link below for a very small subset of
the books published mostly based on extended versions of the accepted
papers of this congress:
The titles of proceedings of the federated congress have been indexed into
the ACM Digital Library ( ) which includes bibliographic
citations from major publishers in computing.

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.


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. The titles of proceedings of the federated
congress have been indexed into the ACM Digital Library
( ) which includes bibliographic citations from major
publishers in computing.

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.

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
