CGD'06 is an international conference held simultaneously
(ie, same location and dates) with a number of other
joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'06 (The 2006 World
Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and
Applied Computing). WORLDCOMP'06 is the largest annual
gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
engineering and applied computing. Many of the 28 joint
conferences in WORLDCOMP are the premier conferences for
presentation of advances in their respective fields.
WORLDCOMP'06 is composed of the following international
conferences: Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and
Applications; Scientific Computing; Grid Computing and
Applications; Security and Management; Artificial Intelligence;
Machine Learning; Software Engineering Research and Practice;
Programming Languages and Compilers; Internet Computing; Semantic
Web and Web Services; Computer Design; Real-Time Computing
Systems and Applications; Embedded Systems and Applications;
Wireless Networks; Pervasive Systems and Computing; Image
Processing, Computer Vision, and Pattern Recognition; Computer
Graphics and Virtual Reality; Modeling, Simulation and
Visualization Methods; Computer Games Development; Frontiers in
Education in Computer Science and Engineering; Foundations of
Computer Science; e-Learning, e-Business, Enterprise Information
Systems, e-Government, and Outsourcing; Data Mining; Information
and Knowledge Engineering; Bioinformatics and Computational
Biology; Computing in Nanotechnology; Engineering of
Reconfigurable Systems and Algorithms; Communications in Computing.

The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences into a coordinated research 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 to form
these annual conferences facilitates communication among
researchers 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 conferences.


Each technical session will have at least 6 paper
presentations (from different authors). The session
chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their
sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing,
selecting, ... The names of session chairs will appear
as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and
on the cover of the books.

Proposals to organize technical sessions should include
the following information: name and address (+ E-mail)
of proposer, title of session, a 100-word description of
the topic of the session, the name of the conference the
session is submitted for consideration, and a short
description on how the session will be advertised (in
most cases, session proposers solicit papers from
colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the
session proposer). Mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia
(address is given above); E-mail submissions are preferred.
We would like to receive the proposals by January 10, 2006.


Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft
paper (about 5 to 8 pages - single space, font size of 10
to 12) to Prof. Andrew Ware or H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 20,
2006. E-mail submissions in MS document or PDF formats are
preferable (Fax or postal submissions are also fine.)
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, E-mail address, telephone number, and
Fax number for each author. The first page should also
include the name of the author who will be presenting
the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords.
Also, the name of the conference that the paper is being
submitted to must be mentioned on the first page.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by
two researchers in the topical area. The Camera-Ready
papers will be reviewed by one person.


The Program Committee includes members of chapters
of World Academy of Science (chapters: supercomputing;
scientific computing; artificial intelligence; imaging
science; databases; simulation; software engineering;
embedded systems; internet and web technologies;
communications; computer security; and bioinformatics.)
The Program Committee for individual conferences is
currently being formed. Those interested in joining
the Program Committee should email Prof. Andrew Ware
(jaware@glam.ac.uk) or H. R. Arabnia (hra@cs.uga.edu) the
following information:
Name, affiliation and position, complete mailing address,
email address, tel/fax numbers, a short biography
together with research interests and the name of the
conference offering to help with.


The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort
hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other
near-by hotels). The Monte Carlo Resort is a mega hotel
with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms.
The hotel 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 and kiddie pools, sunning decks, Easy River
water ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis
courts, health spa (with workout equipment, whirlpool,
sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality game rooms, nightly
shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping area,
bars, ... Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a
day and most are suitable for families and children. The
negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very
reasonable. The hotel is within walking distance from
most other attractions (major shopping areas, recreational
destinations, fine dining and night clubs, free street
shows, ...).
