The netdriver blogspot revealed 3 new families of fake conferences (two from IEEE and the so-called IADIS)
we copy the following:
Avoid Fake IEEE. Do you think that we are not right when we try to reveal the fake conferences (mainly from IEEE)? See this web page. No need to comme
it is the same if these people would say "Attention: We are a fake conference organization in collaboration with IEEE. Come and Enjoy our FAKE Conference that will publish its proceedings in IEEE"
Read this web page http://www.grs-association.org/
No organization grs-association exists!
In fact the front page http://www.grs-association.org is closed
Do you wander why?
See also their Spam Email (Fake conferences without Spam cannot exist)
The following equivalency could be a Theorem in a paper that can easily be accepted,
can easily presented and easily accepted in this kind of "conferences"
Junk (or Spam or Bogus) conference <===> Publication in IEEE Xplore <===> SPAM
This is their typical Spam (some fonts in chinese)
These are the IADIS notoriously bogus conferences. Avoid them and reject academic CVs of candidates containing IADIS Publications and IADIS fake conferences.
Do not refund registration fees of participants in IADIS junk conference. They spam us everyday.

See http://multiconf.000space.com for further information on whether these are fake conferences.
I believe that the annual conferences (MULTICONF) run by PromoteResearch.org are suspect. I believe that they do not properly review research papers. A conference that does not properly review research papers is known as a fake conference. PromoteResearch.org has the following conferences held in Orlando, Florida: AIPR, ARCS, BCBGC, CCN, EISWT, HPCS, ISP, IVPCV, SETP, TMFCS.
I also believe that PromoteResearch.org conferences are run by Bhanu Prasad (from Florida A&M University) who works behind the scenes. He is the one who responds to issues raised about PromoteResearch.org conferences. He is the one who invites people to join the program committees. See the following link for one of Bhanu Prasad's responses to someone who questioned the legitimacy of his conferences:
Bhanu Prasad's name had not appeared with the conference anywhere on the Web before. He used his real name because he had to. Apparently someone sent an email to one of the conference program committee members and questioned the legitimacy of the conferences. That program committee member asked Bhanu Prasad to respond to the question. Why would he ask Bhanu Prasad to respond to such sensitive issues? If PromoteResearch.org conferences are legitimate, then why wouldn't the main organizer disclose his name?
I believe that they do not properly review research papers. When an author submits a paper to PromoteResearch.org using a free email address such as a Gmail, Yahoo mail, or Hotmail address, PromoteResearch.org responds by asking the author to submit the paper from an email address associated with a company, university, college, or an organization. They know that members of the research community use free email addresses such as Gmail, Yahoo mail, and Hotmail addresses to submit computer generated gibberish papers (see SCIgen) to check the legitimacy of conferences. See the email correspondence below and http://www.promoteresearch.org/2009/paper-author-information.txt to see that PromoteResearch.org doesn't accept papers submitted from free email addresses such as Gmail, Yahoo mail, and Hotmail addresses. I believe this is a clear indication that PromoteResearch.org does not review submissions. I believe they have adopted the above policy as a means to check whether a submission is a potential computer generated gibberish submission. I believe that they only seek to verify that a paper is coming from a legitimate source rather than looking at the quality of the paper.
I tried to submit a research paper using a Gmail account because my research paper is not associated with my work at the company where I'm employed. In response to my submission, PromoteResearch.org asked me to resend the paper from my company email address. When I told them that my research paper is not associated with the work that I do where I am employed, so I do not wish to use my company email address, their response was to email them my C.V. But why would they want my C.V? I believe that they only seek to verify that a research paper is coming from a legitimate source rather than looking at the quality of the research paper. See the email correspondence below.
PromoteResearch.org has an annual multiconference (MULTICONF) composed of a bunch of different individual conferences. In 2010, their multiconference is called The 2010 Multi-Conference in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology and Control Engineering (MULTICONF-10) and it is composed of the following 10 conferences:
International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Pattern Recognition (AIPR-10)
International Conference on Automation, Robotics and Control Systems (ARCS-10)
International Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Genomics and Chemoinformatics (BCBGC-10)
International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (CCN-10)
International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems and Web Technologies (EISWT-10)
International Conference on High Performance Computing Systems (HPCS-10)
International Conference on Information Security and Privacy (ISP-10)
International Conference on Image and Video Processing and Computer Vision (IVPCV-10)
International Conference on Software Engineering Theory and Practice (SETP-10)
International Conference on Theoretical and Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (TMFCS-10)
A copy of all correspondence between myself and PromoteResearch.org is available at the following links:

This is one more IEEE Scam (IEEE Fake Conference)
IEEE Fake Conference
Due to Lunar New Year holidays and numerous requests, the 6th International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'10) and the 7th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery (FSKD'10) is extending the submission deadline to 10 March 2010. We cordially invite you to submit a paper or invited session proposal.
Yantai was listed as one of the world's most inhabitable places by the United Nations and was recognized as the "most charming city of China" by China Central Television. Undulating hills rise above the area's many rivers and are framed by beaches and neighboring islands. Famous tourist attractions include the Tashan Mountain, Kongdong Island, and Penglai Pavilion Scenic Area. Seafood and fruits are plentiful in Yantai.
Selected best papers will appear in SCI-indexed journal(s). All papers in conference proceedings will be indexed by both EI Compendex and ISTP, as well as the IEEE Xplore.
ICNC-FSKD is a premier international forum for scientists and researchers to present the state of the art of data mining and intelligent methods inspired from nature, particularly biological, linguistic, and physical systems, with applications to signal processing, design, and more. This is an exciting and emerging interdisciplinary area in which a wide range of theory and methodologies are being investigated and developed to tackle complex and challenging problems. Previously, the joint conferences in 2005 through 2009 each attracted over 3000 submissions from around the world. ICNC'10-FSKD'10 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. The registration fee of US*D 390 includes proceedings, lunches, dinners, banquet, and all technical sessions.
To promote international participation of researchers from outside the country/region where the conference is held (i.e., China’s mainland), researchers outside of China’s mainland are encouraged to propose invited sessions. The first author of each paper in an invited session must not be affiliated with an organization in China’s mainland. All papers in the invited sessions can be marked as "Invited Paper". One organizer for each invited session with at least 6 registered papers will enjoy an honorarium of US*D 400. Invited session organizers will solicit submissions, conduct reviews and recommend accept/reject decisions on the submitted papers. Invited session organizers will be able to set their own submission and review schedules, as long as a list of recommended papers is determined by 30 March 2010. Each invited session proposal should include: (1) the name, bio, and contact information of each organizer of the invited session; (2) the title and a short synopsis of the invited session. Please send your proposal to email@example.com
For more information, visit the conference web page:
If you have any questions after visiting the conference web page, please email the secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us at this major event in beautiful Yantai !!!
P.S.: Kindly forward to your colleagues or students who may be interested.
To forward what? a fake conference call-for-paper?
On the contrary, we protect our colleagues from Fake Conferences, guys.

Is it fake or almost fake? New Incidend for another fake paper in an IEEE Conference:

Most of the Researchers doubt now the validity and reliability of the IEEE
A letter from Evan M. Butterfield (Director of Products & Services, IEEE Computer Society10662 Los Vaqueros Circle, Los Alamitos, CA 90720714.816.2165) informed in Jan 17, 2009 the following:
This is the official confession of IEEE Fake Conferences (Many Sites on the Web have Published it)
date Sat, Jan 17, 2009 at 4:03 AMsubject Confidential: Important CPS Message Regarding Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions
TO: CPS Clients FROM: Evan Butterfield, Director of Products and Services RE: Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions (CONFIDENTIAL) DATE: 16 January 2009
The IEEE Computer Society (CS) has evidence that multiple (IEEE) conferences are receiving machine-generated papers. In two cases, conferences have actually accepted an obviously fraudulent submission. This is a serious issue that threatens the credibility of your conference, the quality of the digital library, and the reputation of both the IEEE and CS. It requires your immediate attention. Please take this opportunity to ensure that your peer review processes are being followed, and adapt to any new requirements that may be communicated by the IEEE or the Computer Society. No conference published by CPS should rely on an abstract review. It is very important that you review carefully the full text of all papers submitted to your conference. If you have already accepted papers, your program committee should review the full text again. While CPS staff will be conducting random spot-checks of conference papers in the publishing queue, we are relying on you to authenticate the content of your proceedings. Any papers that were not actually presented at your conference need to be brought to our attention, and should receive close review. In known cases, the machine-generated origin is obvious from a reading of the first few paragraphs of the paper; the abstracts are human-generated and do not indicate the quality of the paper itself. In the past, papers have been submitted by “Herbert Schlangemann,” but be mindful that the perpetrator of this fraud will change the approach over time. In the event you discover any evidence of questionable content or behavior, please communicate that to us immediately along with an action plan for addressing the problem. Thank you for your help in maintaining the quality of our products.
