who are independent of the conference program committee. The
evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of the program
committee who will recommend a decision to the chair of the track
the paper has been submitted to. The track chair will make the
decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by one
member of the program committee.

of the program committee for individual conferences include renowned
leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and practitioners of the
highest ranks; many are directors of large research laboratories,
IEEE Fellows, heads/chairs of departments, deans and provosts.
Each committee also includes two Student Members (in their final

This set of joint conferences is the largest annual gathering of
researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied
computing. Many of the 25 joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the
premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective
fields. Most of these conferences have been evaluated and
to be top tier research conferences
(see http://www.cs-conference-ranking.org/index.html for an
We anticipate to have 2000 or more attendees from over 75 countries
participating in the 2007 joint conferences.

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
among researchers from all over the world 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.
