Most of the Researchers doubt now the validity and reliability of the IEEE

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.

YES! many "IEEE" Conferences are absolutely garbage

Garbage conference also: IARIA, Petre Dini Conferences, Nagib Callaos Conferences, IEEE Sensor Networks Conferences, IEEE Computational Complexity Conference
Try to find more Bogus IEEE Conferences via google!

WARNING: Beware of Wessex Institute of Technology !
Werner Purgathofer, Eduard Groeller, Martin Feda,
TU Wien / Austria.

This paper illustrates that there are conferences which will destroy confidence in scientific life if the community does not forbid them. The Wessex Institute of Technology (UK) [1] organizes a whole series of regular conferences on various topics [2]. Our experiences are only with one of these, "VIDEA", but one should probably also be careful with the others. It is an offense against honorable scientists to offer false publication possibilities under a scientifically serious disguise for high fees. Our conclusion is: VIDEA accepts EVERYTHING! And we conclude from that that a publication in the VIDEA proceedings is worth NOTHING AT ALL! And to organize such a conference is simply a fraud. Conferences like VIDEA are a morally dispisable scheme to allow people to buy themselves publications without having to undergo any type of reviewing. It simply increases the flow of worthless data and makes it more difficult for scientists to extract really useful information


PETRE DINI said...

In my opinion the International Journal of Computer Science is a fake journals and this is itsdubious website
for publishing paper, where there is no contact information about the author, just says UK, london. They want you to transfer money in France. There reviewers list is madeup of people from agriculture, biology, physics etc reviewing for computer science.

The IEEE is like Microsoft, an American Commercial Company.
After so many complaints, after the internet fire with the IARIA IEEE fake conference, the HIGHSCI (IEEE in essence) Fake conference, they continue granting the IEEE name to IARIA and HIGHSCI.
Also, the IEEE continues sponsoring the fake conference of Sensor Networks and the fake conference of Computational Intelligence.
In my opinion, the unreliability of IEEE is obvious and does not need any proof.

The IEEE must stop the collaboration with the "Shops" like IARIA, HIGHSCI etc...
For the commission of the 15 - 30%, IEEE will lose everything. IEEE will lose its good name (eventhough in the area of conferences the IEEE name is now very very very low!!!!)

See this:

"Check out the paper Towards the Simulation of E-commerce by Herbert Schlangemann, which is available in the IEEEXplor database (full article available only to IEEE members). This generated paper has been accepted with review by the 2008 International Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE). According to the organizers, 'CSSE is one of the important conferences sponsored by IEEE Computer Society, which serves as a forum for scientists and engineers in the latest development of artificial intelligence, grid computing, computer graphics, database technology, and software engineering.' Even better, fake author Herbert Schlangemann has been selected as session chair (PDF) for that conference. (The name Schlangemann was chosen based on the short film Der Schlangemann by Andreas Hansson and Björn Renberg.)"

I recommend to each of you to create a SCIgen bogus paper and to send it to IEEE Conferences.
There is a 90% probability to pass it

I worked as follows
I submitted to the big and ... "famous" IEEE Power Systems Conference

a junk paper with the title: "Thunderstorms Create Lightning"
Actually it was the text from
and they accepted it!

This was necessary for me to take my Master Degree. My Professors gave me my Master degree, but I will not go to present and I will not pay the fees.

So, they told that my "paper" will be excluded from the "Proceedings"
Please, forward this information to your folks said...

They accept ANYTHING you send them!! Want proof, try to send them some scigen paper and wait and watch! Funny!!

Really world is suffering from fake dull but intelligent researchers.I,being in W.B,India seen P.hd fellows,Prof.s to simply copy pasting modifying images of IEEE papers and submitting to IEEE and getting selected.They even don't know the basics(shame on you guys).Shame,shame,shame.....
