Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at: Submissions must be
uploaded by March 12, 2012 and they must be in either MS doc or pdf
formats (about 7 pages including all figures, tables, and references -
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 final papers for
publication.) Papers must not have been previously published or
currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of the
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. The name of
the conference (ie, ICAI) that the paper is being submitted for
consideration must be stated on the first page of the paper as well as a
100 to 150-word abstract. The length of the final Camera-Ready papers
(if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of
contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program
committee will be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject);
often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees by using
a double-blinded review process. In addition, all papers whose authors
include a member of the conference program committee will be evaluated
using the double-blinded review process. (Essay/philosophical papers
will not be refereed but may be considered for
discussion/panels). Proceedings of ICAI will be published in printed
conference books (ISBN) and will also be made available online.  The
proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track
citation frequency/data for each published paper (science citation
databases such as: Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering &
Technology; The French National Center for Scientific Research, CNRS,
INIST databases, PASCAL (covers the core scientific literature in
Science; about 90% of inclusions are journals; only about 9% are
proceedings; worldcomp tracks are selected to be among the 9% -
accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit,
Qwam, and STN International); and others. Though, there is no guarantee
that the proceedings will also be included in EI Compendex/Elsevier
indexings, in the past, the proceedings were included in these
databases. Therefore, we will also be sending the proceedings for
indexing procedures to EI Compendex/Elsevier. The printed
proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at the

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected authors will
be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication
in a number of research books contracted with various publishers (such
as, Springer, Elsevier, ...) - these books will be composed after the
conference.  Also, many chairs of tracks will be forming journal special
issues to be published after the conference.

anticipate to have 2,100 or more attendees from over 80
countries. WORLDCOMP 2012 will be composed of research presentations,
keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions,
and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/ tutorial/panel

Chatterjee (Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, SourceTrace
Systems, Inc.), and many other distinguished speakers. To get a feeling
about the conferences' atmosphere, see the 2011 delegates photos

An important mission of WORLDCOMP is "Providing a unique platform for a
diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies,
and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also
attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that
have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to
achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives."

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for
cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines. 56223


As of February 5, 2012, papers published in WORLDCOMP set of proceedings
have received 20,405 citations. In recent months (November 23, 2011 to
February 5, 2012; ie, in about 75 days), there had been 4,545 citations
to WORLDCOMP papers (about 1,800 citations per month). The above record
is significant (thanks to the authors). As the result of high impact
(based on citations) of WORLDCOMP papers, "Microsoft Academic Search"
has listed each individual track of the congress among its compiled list
of "Top Conferences". The citation record of WORLDCOMP set of
proceedings is in fact higher than the citation data of many reputable
journals in computer science and computer engineering. Citation data was
obtained obtained from )
