Dear friends and colleagues:
Please share the announcement below with individuals who may be interested.
We anticipate having about 2,000 attendees from 88 countries.
Kind regards, Steering Committee

       CALL FOR PAPERS - Extended Deadline: May 25, 2012

          The 2012 World Congress in Computer Science,
          Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing

You are invited to submit a full paper for consideration. All accepted
papers will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (ISBN)
and will also be made available online. Abstract submissions (one/two-page)
will be considered for poster presentations and one/two-page publication
in the proceedings. The conference proceedings will be made available in
printed book as well as online. The proceedings will be indexed in science
citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each paper. The
proceedings of the congress enjoys a high number of citations; about
26,000 citations have been made (so far) to papers published in the

This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to submit
their papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers". Therefore, authors
who have already submitted papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers"
should IGNORE this announcement. (Those who have been notified that their
papers have been accepted, MUST still follow the instructions that were
emailed to them; including meeting the deadlines mentioned in the
notifications that were sent to them).


May 25, 2012:       Submission of papers for evaluation
June 6, 2012:       Notification of acceptance/not-acceptance
June 19, 2012:      Registration
July 16-19, 2012:   All tracks of the federated World Congress in Computer
                    Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
                    (Las Vegas, USA)

July 30, 2012:      Camera-Ready Papers Due for publication
                    (papers submitted and accepted in response to this announcement
                    will be published in the Final Edition of the proceedings which
                    will go to press soon after the conference.)


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at:
Submissions must be uploaded by May 25, 2012 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 that the paper is being submitted for consideration must
be stated on the first page of the paper as well as a 100 to 150-word
abstract (for the list of joint conferences, see below). The length of the
final/Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column
IEEE style) pages.

Authors whose papers are ACCEPTED will be instructed to upload their papers
to a particular web site for publication - the uploaded papers to the
publication web site will only be checked for correct typesetting.

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 such as: Inspec / IET / The
Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for
Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (covers the core
scientific literature in Science; about 90% of inclusions are journals;
only about 9% are proceedings; this set of proceedings are selected to be among
the 9% - accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit,
Qwam, and STN International); and others. Though, there is no guarantee that
the proceedings will also be included in EI Compendex/Elsevier indexings,
in the past, the proceedings were included in these databases. Therefore,
we will also be sending the proceedings for indexing procedures to EI

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 contracted with various publishers. These books
will be composed after the conference. Also, many chairs of tracks will be
forming journal special issues to be published after the conference.

Note that authors who submit papers in response to this announcement, will
have their papers evaluated for publication consideration in the Final
Edition of the conference proceedings which will go to press soon after the
conference (the conference would then make the necessary arrangements to ship
the printed proceedings/books to such authors). The Final Edition of the
conference proceedings will be identical to earlier edition except for a
number of sections/chapters appended to the proceedings/book.

Submission of Poster Papers:

Poster papers can be 2 pages long. Authors are to follow the same instructions
that appear above. 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 if the author of the accepted poster wishes to have his/her poster
published as a 2-page extended abstract.)

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. 4043
