Chairman disappears from world's biggest computer conference



The Chairman of the world's biggest computer science conference WORLDCOMP has disappeared without notice from the conference website since March 12, 2012: http://www.world-academy-of-science.org (click on the Contact information or anywhere on this website and you notice that there is no conference chair's name and address). It is very strange but why he disappeared?

Hamid Arabnia (a professor of computer science in the University of Georgia (UGA), USA) is the founder and chairman of WORLDCOMP for more than a decade and he runs the conference primarily for registration fee collection. He accepted almost all submitted papers (more papers, means more registration fee!) without any review (but tricking the authors that there is a review ). According to an analysis http://ktwop.wordpress.com/2012/03/03/intimidation-attempts-prove-that-worldcomp-is-a-scam/#more-7769 he has earned 10-15 million US dollars from registration fee alone (money from sponsors is not added to this).

Recently WORLDCOMP has been proven to be the biggest scam conference on earth! Visit the website http://copy-shake-paste.blogspot.com/2012/02/fake-conference-worldcomp.html written by a famous plagiarism researcher Prof. Debora Weber-Wulff from Germany (Google her name for details) and follow the link to see why it is a fake conference.

Since WORLDCOMP has been proven to be fake, it looks Hamid Arabnia is concerned of lawsuits and blames/insults from researchers all over the world but at the same time, he is determined to run this sham conference somehow (for registration fee). It seems, this is the reason why he disappeared from WORLDCOMP's website and he is now running the conference anonymously. WORLDCOMP is the first conference in the entire world that is running without the name of its chairman/coordinator (and his physical address/affiliation) on the website!

The draft paper submission deadline for WORLDCOMP is silently extended from March 12 to March 27, 2012. The deadline may be extended more times to get more papers (means, more registration fee in to the pocket). As of March 12, 2012, there are no program committee members, no keynote speakers, no steering committee members, no organizing committee members, and of course, there is no chairman/coordinator! Why is Hamid Arabnia still running this fake conference? (except for registration fee).

If Hamid Arabnia is running this conference for academic/professional purpose, we ask him to put his academic/professional affiliation (ie, his UGA affiliation) along with his name on WORLDCOMP website. We also ask him to answer all the questions at http://copy-shake-paste.blogspot.com/2012/02/more-questions-on-worldcomp.html

Several authors who published papers in previous WORLDCOMPs are very much worried about their CVs. Hope this information is helpful in case you have plans to submit a paper to WORLDCOMP (that has more than 20 international conferences).

See http://sites.google.com/site/worlddump1 for more information.

If none of the previous links work then search the internet with any of the following words: worldcomp fake OR hamid arabnia fake OR hamid arabnia bogus conference OR worldcomp bogus conference

PS: Hamid Arabnia may soon “bring” another person (his puppet) as the chairman/coordinator (but Hamid Arabnia is the person who actually runs the bogus conference from behind the scenes). In the worst case (eg., if Hamid Arabnia's disappearance creates a problem to WORLDCOMP's existence), he may reemerge as the chairman/coordinator but without his UGA affiliation.

To:
The President and Provost of University of Georgia,


Everyone knows that WORLDCOMP run by Prof. Hamid Arabnia from UGA is fake/bogus/scam/sham. He is using UGA name on the fake conference website http://www.worldacademyofscience.org/worldcomp12/ws/contact He did this in 2012 and is now doing it again in 2013.

See https://sites.google.com/site/worlddump1 for WORLDCOMP fakeness details.

Did you read the heart breaking story http://www.bioinformatics.org/pipermail/bbb/2013-February/005254.html in which the African student mentioned “I was attracted by the keynote speakers, sponsors, tutorials, and University of Georgia name at WORLDCOMP website. Now I feel that I made a very critical mistake by submitting to WORLDCOMP.” UGA is obligated to respond to this student because UGA name is used (without any disclaimer) on WORLDCOMP website.

How did you allow Hamid Arabnia to use UGA logo and email at this message http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.ai.weka/30098 ? (click on “headers” at top right of this webpage to see the UGA email address of Hamid Arabnia).


If WORLDCOMP is genuine then why Hamid Arabnia is not responding completely to the open challenge in Section 6 at https://sites.google.com/site/dumpconf ? We ask UGA to respond to this challenge because UGA name is sued in the website and proceedings of the fake conference WORLDCOMP for over 10 years. Prove that UGA has ethical values by responding to the challenge.

Are you feeling proud of what Hamid Arabnia is doing? Why are you keeping quiet and let him use UGA name on the fake conference website (it is clearly proved that WORLDCOMP is not at all a professional activity but simply a moneymaking activity). Tomorrow, if Hamid Arabnia starts a gambling business or a prostitute business (giving an excuse that he is investigating computer applications in these fields), do you allow him to use UGA name on them also? What is UGA’s policy on using UGA’s name on personal businesses such as WORLDCOMP websites? If you cannot control this (ie., if you cannot control Hamid Arabnia from using UGA name anywhere on WORLDCOMP 2013 website), you should resign from UGA administrative positions rather than letting UGA reputation drained.

Sincerely
Nancy

I have received today SPAM from SIAM (SIAM = SPAM and SPAM = SCAM) Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
SIAM has really good journals, but most of the conferences are fake and bogus.
They have a ridiculous review only on the Abstract. I have sent papers several times to SIAM. They evaluate only the Abstract and of course, many ph.d. candidates play with SIAM sending them fake/bogus papers (SIAM has accepted several times Abstracts from SCIgen Papers)
SIAM = SPAM = SCAM
