delegates photos available at:

WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer
science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate
to have 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries participating
at the Congress. A number of individual research tracks of WORLDCOMP
have been held for many years; for example, PDPTA has been held
annually since 1995 (PDPTA'10 is the 16th annual conference); ERSA
has been held annually since 2001 (ERSA'10 is the 10th annual
conference); ICAI has been held annually since 1999 (ICAI'10 is the
12th annual conference); other tracks of WORLDCOMP Congress have
similar records.

The motivation behind this federated congress 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. Both inward research (core areas of
computer science and engineering) and outward research (multi-
disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and applications) will be covered
during the joint conferences. WORLDCOMP provides 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.

(Each track/conference has its own committee members - what
appears below is a partial list of members of the steering
committee of the federated event - WORLDCOMP.)

   Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
   them to the evaluation web site at:
   Submissions must be uploaded by March 1, 2010 and they must be
   in either MS doc (but not docx) or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages
   - 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.)

   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, 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. Finally, the name of the
   conference/track (see the list above) that the paper is being
   submitted to must be stated on the first page.

   Full papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity,
   impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two experts
   in the field who are independent of the conference program committee.
   The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by one member of the
   program committee who will recommend a decision to the chair of the
   track that the paper has been submitted to. The chair will make the
   final decision. Lastly, the final papers will be reviewed by one
   member of the program committee.

   All accepted papers will be published in the respective conference
   proceedings (in both, printed book form as well as online). The
   proceedings will be indexed in Inspec / IET / The Institute for
   Engineering and Technology, DBLP / Computer Science Bibliography,
   and others. 66573) The printed proceedings will be available for
   distribution on site at the conference.

   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 being proposed/contracted
   with various publishers (such as, Springer, Elsevier, IOS, ...) -
   these books would be composed after the conference. Also, many
   chairs of sessions and workshops will be forming journal special
   issues to be published after the conference.
