Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by
uploading them to http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/ .
Submissions must be received by Mar. 17, 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 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. Finally, the name of the conference (CSC)
must be mentioned 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 committee.
The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of
the program committee who will recommend a decision to the co-chairs.
The co-chairs will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready
papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.


March 17, 2009: Extended deadline for Submission of papers
(about 5 to 7 pages)
April 17, 2009: Notification of acceptance
May 4, 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)


The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy
of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; AI;
imaging science; databases; simulation; software engineering;
embedded systems; internet and web technologies; communications;
bioinformatics; computational biology; and computer security.)
The Program Committee for CSC is currently being formed. Those
interested in joining the Program Committee should email Prof. Arabnia
( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) the following information: Name, affiliation
and position, complete mailing address, email address, a short
biography together with research interests and the name of the
conference (CSC) offering to help with.
Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks
are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and
practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research
laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of
departments, deans and provosts.


CSC'09 is an annual research conference about scientific computing.
It is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of
other conferences (WORLDCOMP'09). WORLDCOMP is the largest annual
gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering
and applied computing.

The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research topics
into a coordinated 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 facilitates
communication 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) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary,
and applications) will be covered during the event.

CSC'09 and 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. Brian D. Athey (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); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and
many other distinguished speakers.


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, ...)
