Shame for IEEE, Springer Verlag, ACM, AIP, WorldScientific, Taylor and Francis, Elsevier

For more than 8 years our blog has identified that IEEE, Springer Verlag, ACM, AIP (American Institute of Physics), WorldScientific (Singapore), Taylor and Francis, Elsevier conferences are fake, bogus, scam, sham, mock and predatory. Now we have additional Proofs:

Several Blogs (included netdriver.blogpost.com) reported this. In 2014, these SCIgen papers in IEEE were 120.

Let''s start with the IEEE SCIGen Fake Papers of 2009. What's happened in 2009:
In 2009, we had received the following email from a girl that was working in IARIA's secretariat.

IEEE Computer Society Press sent it in January 17 (2009) to all the IEEE Sponsored, Co-Sponsored Conferences as well as to conferences
that publish their Proceedings with IEEE CS Press. It is impressive how many IEEE conferences are based on a review on the Abstract!.

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.

IEEE Fake Conferences. IEEE Predatory Conferences: IEEE and Springer Verlag withdraw more than 120 gibberish papers

IEEE and Springer Verlag withdraw more than 120 gibberish papers


The publishers Springer and IEEE are removing more than 120 papers from their subscription services after a French researcher discovered that the works were computer-generated nonsense.
Over the past two years, computer scientist Cyril Labbé of Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France, has catalogued computer-generated papers that made it into more than 30 published conference proceedings between 2008 and 2013. Sixteen appeared in publications by Springer, which is headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany, and more than 100 were published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), based in New York. Both publishers, which were privately informed by Labbé, say that they are now removing the papers.
Among the works were, for example, a paper published as a proceeding from the 2013 International Conference on Quality, Reliability, Risk, Maintenance, and Safety Engineering, held in Chengdu, China. (The conference website says that all manuscripts are “reviewed for merits and contents”.) The authors of the paper, entitled ‘TIC: a methodology for the construction of e-commerce’, write in the abstract that they “concentrate our efforts on disproving that spreadsheets can be made knowledge-based, empathic, and compact”. (Nature News has attempted to contact the conference organizers and named authors of the paper but received no reply*; however at least some of the names belong to real people. The IEEE has now removed the paper).
*Update: One of the named authors replied to Nature News on 25 February. He said that he first learned of the article when conference organizers notified his university in December 2013; and that he does not know why he was a listed co-author on the paper. "The matter is being looked into by the related investigators," he said.

How to create a nonsense paper

Labbé developed a way to automatically detect manuscripts composed by a piece of software called SCIgen, which randomly combines strings of words to produce fake computer-science papers. SCIgen was invented in 2005 by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge to prove that conferences would accept meaningless papers — and, as they put it, “to maximize amusement” (see ‘Computer conference welcomes gobbledegook paper’). A related program generates random physics manuscript titles on the satirical website arXiv vs. snarXiv. SCIgen is free to download and use, and it is unclear how many people have done so, or for what purposes. SCIgen’s output has occasionally popped up at conferences, when researchers have submitted nonsense papers and then revealed the trick.
Labbé does not know why the papers were submitted — or even if the authors were aware of them. Most of the conferences took place in China, and most of the fake papers have authors with Chinese affiliations. Labbé has emailed editors and authors named in many of the papers and related conferences but received scant replies; one editor said that he did not work as a program chair at a particular conference, even though he was named as doing so, and another author claimed his paper was submitted on purpose to test out a conference, but did not respond on follow-up. Nature has not heard anything from a few enquiries. 
“I wasn’t aware of the scale of the problem, but I knew it definitely happens. We do get occasional e-mails from good citizens letting us know where SCIgen papers show up,” says Jeremy Stribling, who co-wrote SCIgen when he was at MIT and now works at VMware, a software company in Palo Alto, California.
“The papers are quite easy to spot,” says Labbé, who has built awebsite where users can test whether papers have been created using SCIgen. His detection technique, described in a study1published in Scientometrics in 2012, involves searching for characteristic vocabulary generated by SCIgen. Shortly before that paper was published, Labbé informed the IEEE of 85 fake papers he had found. Monika Stickel, director of corporate communications at IEEE, says that the publisher “took immediate action to remove the papers” and “refined our processes to prevent papers not meeting our standards from being published in the future”. In December 2013, Labbé informed the IEEE of another batch of apparent SCIgen articles he had found. Last week, those were also taken down, but the web pages for the removed articles give no explanation for their absence.
Ruth Francis, UK head of communications at Springer, says that the company has contacted editors, and is trying to contact authors, about the issues surrounding the articles that are coming down. The relevant conference proceedings were peer reviewed, she confirms — making it more mystifying that the papers were accepted.
The IEEE would not say, however, whether it had contacted the authors or editors of the suspected SCIgen papers, or whether submissions for the relevant conferences were supposed to be peer reviewed. “We continue to follow strict governance guidelines for evaluating IEEE conferences and publications,” Stickel said.

A long history of fakes

Labbé is no stranger to fake studies. In April 2010, he used SCIgen to generate 102 fake papers by a fictional author called Ike Antkare [see pdf]. Labbé showed how easy it was to add these fake papers to the Google Scholar database, boosting Ike Antkare’s h-index, a measure of published output, to 94 — at the time, making Antkare the world's 21st most highly cited scientist. Last year, researchers at the University of Granada, Spain, added to Labbé’s work, boosting their own citation scores in Google Scholar by uploading six fake papers with long lists to their own previous work2.
Labbé says that the latest discovery is merely one symptom of a “spamming war started at the heart of science” in which researchers feel pressured to rush out papers to publish as much as possible.
There is a long history of journalists and researchers getting spoof papers accepted in conferences or by journals to reveal weaknesses in academic quality controls — from a fake paper published by physicist Alan Sokal of New York University in the journal Social Text in 1996, to a sting operation by US reporter John Bohannon published in Science in 2013, in which he got more than 150 open-access journals to accept a deliberately flawed study for publication.
Labbé emphasizes that the nonsense computer science papers all appeared in subscription offerings. In his view, there is little evidence that open-access publishers — which charge fees to publish manuscripts — necessarily have less stringent peer review than subscription publishers.
Labbé adds that the nonsense papers were easy to detect using his tools, much like the plagiarism checkers that many publishers already employ. But because he could not automatically download all papers from the subscription databases, he cannot be sure that he has spotted every SCIgen-generated paper.

Many ACM conferences are garbage, junk conferences (fake conferences or bogus conferences) and this can be proven  very easily:  Most of the ACM Conferences dot not have peer review in the full paper. They make review only on the Abstract. This is why ACM Conferences are fake and bogus. Google: ACM Fake Conferences or see this web page:

SIAM=SPAM. One more bogus conference from SIAM. SIAM takes names from other conferences without their permission. The International Conference on Data Mining Conference has been hijacked by SIAM.

The International Conference on Data Mining Conference has been hijacked by SIAM. The International conference on Data Mining was a conference, track of WORLDCOMP (Organizer Hamid Arabnia). Now, SIAM try to exterminate WORLDCOM and Hamid Arabnia and takes the WORLCOMP conferences one by one. Same name, but quite bogus and fake.
This is a shame of the criminal society SIAM that send us million of SPAM emails every morning. Admire the SPAM of this predatory SIAM (SPAM) meeting.

  SDM2014: The 14TH SIAM International Conference on Data Mining  (Bogus SIAM - SPAM Meeting. The name of this conference was stolen by SIAM. The International Conference on Data Mining Conference )
                   Call for Workshops (Alert: Fake SIAM Conference)
                     Deadline: September 27, 2013
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The SDM14 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide
participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of knowledge discovery and data mining. Ideally a
workshop should foster interactions between different communities within the scope of SDM (e.g. statisticians, computer scientists, data scientists, etc. from
industry, academia, etc.). A workshop should not be a mini-conference, but rather it should encourage the presentation of novel ideas, even if they are in an
early stage of development, contact between different points of view, and active exchanges between participants. Therefore publishing notes is optional for the
SDM workshops.

The responsibilities of the workshop organizers include

- preparing the call for papers and publicizing it,

- maintaining the workshop web site,

- deciding the workshop program content; this may optionally include inviting speakers, inviting reviewers, selecting the papers through a peer review process
delivering the notes to the press in time (if the workshop organizers decide to publish notes), and

- delivering the final workshop program to the workshop chair in time.

Workshop proposals should be prepared as a Web page and its URL sent via e-mail to the SDM14 Workshop co-chairs: Tina Eliassi-Rad (tina@eliassi.org) and Amol
Ghoting (aghoting@us.ibm.com) by September 27, 2013 11:59 PM PST.  You will receive an acknowledgment of receipt within 24 hours. Please ping us if you do not
receive a receipt within 24 hours.

A workshop proposal should include the following information:

- Workshop title

- Full contact information of the organizers

- Description of the workshop including objectives

- Content, topics of interest. For workshops, a description of the format (e.g., invited talks, round table, accepted presentations, etc.) should be included.

- Please indicate your preference regarding the length of the workshop: Half-day or full-day.

- A short description of the target audience.

- List of potential participants: For workshops this could include potential program committee members, potential authors and invited speakers.

- A summary of previous editions of the workshop (if it was run before), with an emphasis on number of attendees and paper submissions.

- A short biography of each organizer.

Proposals will be judged based on the above information.

Particular preference will be given to proposals that demonstrate the ability to foster interactions among multiple communities, as noted above. We prefer
workshops in which there is participation of diverse people who may not have worked with one another in the past, or which bridge between traditional SDM topics
and communities and other fields. External sources of funding or sponsorship for special events held along with the workshop (e.g. invited talks, poster session)
can be optionally included in the proposal submission.

For any question regarding SDM14 Workshops, please contact the workshop co-chairs: Tina Eliassi-Rad (tina@eliassi.org) and Amol Ghoting  (aghoting@us.ibm.com)
with subject line: SIAM SDM14.

Important Dates:

Submission of Workshop Proposals: September 27, 2013

This is a fake, bogus, junk, crappy, garbage IEEE Conference with more and more extensions in the deadline for paper submission. They have already accepted several garbage papers and they continue bombing us with spam (junk) email daily. IEEE Conferences are really bogus and IEEE knows it.
IEEE is a "good" source for spamferences i.e. conferences that are completely based on daily spamming. Help us to fight the IEEE fake conferences by making a link to this post or to forward to your friends this text by email.
