GCA'06 is an international conference held simultaneously
(ie, same location and dates) with a number of other
joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'06 (The 2006 World
Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and
Applied Computing). WORLDCOMP'06 is the largest annual
gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
engineering and applied computing. Each of the joint
conferences in WORLDCOMP is the premier conference for
presentation of advances in their respective fields.
WORLDCOMP'06 is composed of the following international
conferences: Parallel & Distributed Processing Techniques &
Applications; Scientific Computing; Grid Computing &
Applications; Security & Management; Artificial Intelligence;
Machine Learning; Software Engineering Research & Practice;
Programming Languages & Compilers; Internet Computing; Semantic
Web & Web Services; Computer Design; Real-Time Computing
Systems & Applications; Embedded Systems & Applications; Wireless
Networks; Pervasive Systems & Computing; Image Processing,
Computer Vision, & Pattern Recognition; Computer Graphics &
Virtual Reality; Modeling, Simulation & Visualization Methods;
Computer Games Development; Frontiers in Education in Computer
Science & Engineering; Foundations of Computer Science;
e-Learning, e-Business, Enterprise Information Systems,
e-Government, & Outsourcing; Data Mining; Information &
Knowledge Engineering; Bioinformatics & Computational Biology;
Computing in Nanotechnology; Engineering of Reconfigurable
Systems & Algorithms; Communications in Computing.

The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences into a coordinated research meeting
held in a common place at a common time. The main goal
is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number
of research areas that interact. The model used to form
these annual conferences facilitates communication among
researchers in different fields of computer science,
computer engineering and applied computing. Both inward
research (core areas of computer science and engineering)
and outward research (multi-disciplinary, Inter-disciplinary,
and applications) will be covered during the conferences.


Each technical session will have at least 6 paper
presentations (from different authors). The session
chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their
sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing,
selecting, ... The names of session chairs will appear
as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and
on the cover of the books.

Proposals to organize technical sessions should include
the following information: name and address (+ E-mail)
of proposer, title of session, a 100-word description of
the topic of the session, the name of the conference the
session is submitted for consideration, and a short
description on how the session will be advertised (in
most cases, session proposers solicit papers from
colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the
session proposer). Mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia
(address is given above); E-mail submissions are preferred.
We would like to receive the proposals by December 29, 2005.


Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft
paper (about 5 to 8 pages - single space, font size of 10
to 12) to one of the conference chairs (see above) by
Feb. 20, 2006. E-mail submissions in MS document or PDF
formats are preferable (Fax or postal submissions are also
fine.) All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable
(later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to
follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their
papers for publication.)

The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will
be limited to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have
been previously published or currently submitted for
publication elsewhere. The first page of the draft paper
should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation,
postal address, E-mail address, telephone number, &
Fax number for each author. The first page should also
include the name of the author who will be presenting
the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords.
Also, the name of the conference that the paper is being
submitted to must be mentioned on the first page.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by
two researchers in the topical area. The Camera-Ready
papers will be reviewed by one person.


The Program Committee includes members of chapters
of World Academy of Science (chapters: supercomputing;
scientific computing; artificial intelligence; imaging
science; databases; simulation; software engineering;
embedded systems; internet and web technologies;
communications; computer security; and bioinformatics.)
The Program Committee for individual conferences is
currently being formed. Those interested in joining
the Program Committee should email H. R. Arabnia
([email protected]) the following information:
Name, affiliation and position, complete mailing address,
email address, tel/fax numbers, a short biography
together with research interests and the name of the
conference offering to help with.


The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort
hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other
near-by hotels). The Monte Carlo Resort is a mega hotel
with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms.
The hotel is minutes from the airport with 24-hour
shuttle service to and from the airport. This hotel has
many recreational attractions, including: waterfalls,
spa, pools & kiddie pools, sunning decks, Easy River
water ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis
courts, health spa (with workout equipment, whirlpool,
sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality game rooms, nightly
shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping area,
bars, ... Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a
day & most are suitable for families & children. The
negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very
reasonable. The hotel is within walking distance from
most other attractions (major shopping areas, recreational
destinations, fine dining & night clubs, free street
shows, ...).


Dec. 29, 2005: Proposals for organizing/chairing sessions.
Feb. 20, 2006: Submission of papers (about 5 to 8 pages)
March 20, 2006: Notification of acceptance
April 20, 2006: Camera-Ready papers & Prereg. due
June 26-29, 2006: The 2006 International Conference on
Grid Computing and Applications (GCA'06) +
