Call for Papers with Extended Deadline of April 19, 2014: The 2014 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP'14), July 21-24, 2014, U.S.A.

                   C A L L    F O R    P A P E R S

         Paper Submission Deadline (EXTENDED): April 19, 2014

             The 2014 World Congress in Computer Science,
             Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing

         July 21-24, 2014, Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, USA

-> (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.)

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 for each paper. In
addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about
35%) will appear in journals and edited research books (publishers include:
Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others). See the following links for a small
subset of the publications based on the Congress: (some of these books
and special issues have already received the top 25% downloads in their
respective fields - we also have a number of Elsevier and Springer books in
the pipeline based on the offerings of the congress):

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 21-24, 2014. For the complete
list of joint conferences, see below. To get a feeling about the conferences'
atmosphere, see some delegates photos available at:


April 19, 2014:    Submission of full/regular papers (about 7 pages)
May 10, 2014:      Notification of acceptance (+/- two days)
May 24, 2014:      Final papers + Copyright + Registration
July 21-24, 2014:  The 2014 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer
                   Engineering, and Applied Computing
                   (including all affiliated and federated conferences).


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at: . Submissions must
be uploaded by April 19, 2014 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 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. (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. Science citation databases include: 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, &
STN International); and others. 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,; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village,;
ICOMP, ICWN, IKE, IPCV, PDPTA, and SAM; please see below for the full
name of each of these conferences.

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 whole process takes 12 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 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,; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village,; EMBASE,; and others). For a recent and a
very small subset of the books that have been published based on the
extended versions of accepted papers for this congress, see:


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.

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


As of December 14, 2013, papers published in the conference proceedings
that have been held as part of this congress, have received over
27,500 citations (includes about 3,300 self-citations). Citation data
obtained from . The citation
data does not even include more than 15,000 other citations to papers
in conferences whose first offerings were initiated by worldcomp.
