Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by
uploading them to http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/ .
Submissions must be received by March 11, 2009 and they must be in
either MS doc or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - 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 papers for

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, and email address for each
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. Finally, the name of the conference that
the paper is being submitted to must be stated on the first page.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity,
impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two experts
in the field who are independent of the conference program
The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of
the program committee who will recommend a decision to the chair of
the track that the paper has been submitted to. The chair will
the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready papers will be
by one member of the program committee.


March 11, 2009: Extended deadline for Submission of papers
(about 5 to 7 pages)
April 9, 2009: Notification of acceptance
May 1, 2009: Camera-Ready papers and Registration due
July 13-16, 2009: The 2009 World Congress in Computer Science,
Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
(WORLDCOMP'09 - 22 joint conferences)


12 to 15 tutorials are currently being planned - all tutorials are
free to conference registrants. Tutorial subjects include:
various aspects of supercomputing (parallel and distributed systems
and processing), visualization, preparation for teaching online
courses, various areas of security, sensor networks, bioinformatics
for computer scientists, web services for mobile and wireless
ABET accreditation as it relates to computing, inverse problems in
computer vision, data mining, ...


This set of joint conferences is the largest annual gathering of
researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied
computing. Many of the joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the
premier conferences for presentation of advances in their
respective fields. We anticipate to have 2,400 or more attendees
from over 85 countries participating in the 2009 joint conferences.

WORLDCOMP'09 will be composed of research presentations, keynote
lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions,
and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote and/or tutorial
speakers included: Prof. David A. Patterson (U. of California,
Berkeley); Prof. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H.
Holland (U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado
State U.); Prof. Barry Vercoe (MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of
California, Berkeley); Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys
(OLPC + developer of X Window); and many other distinguished
speakers. For this year's conference, the keynote speakers
Prof. Ian Foster (Father of Grid Computing), Dr. Eric Drexler
(Father of Nanotechnology), Prof. Brian Athey (Head, NIH National
Center for Computational Medicine & Biology), Dr. Jose Munoz
Director, National Science Foundation Office of
and many other distinguished speakers.

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
among researchers from all over the world in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Both
inward research (core areas of computer science and engineering)
outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and
applications) will be covered during the conferences.


The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas,
Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is
a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000
rooms. It 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, sunning decks, Easy
River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows,
a number of restaurants, ... The negotiated room rate for
conference attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within
walking distance from most other attractions (recreational
destinations, Golf courses, ...)
