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:

or google: IEEE 120 SCIgen Papers

The IEEE SCIgen Papers were 85 two years ago:

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.

What a Shame really for the IEEE organizers!

I received much spam from the following conference
which is absolutely crappy and dishonest.

This conference is also a Shame for the IEEE, because accepted 2 bogus papers
"Schlangemann" and other 2 from SCIgen MIT Machine

What a Shame really for the IEEE organizers!
=========================================

Dear Colleague,

The 2nd International Congress on Image and Signal Processing
(CISP 2009) and the 2nd International Conference on BioMedical
Engineering and Informatics (BMEI 2009) will be jointly held in
Tianjin, China, from 17 to 19 October 2009. We cordially invite you
to submit a paper and/or an exhibition.

Selected best papers will appear in SCI-indexed journal(s). The papers
published in the proceedings will be included in the IEEE Xplore
and submitted to Ei Compendex for indexing (CISP 2009 IEEE Catalog
Number: CFP0994D; BMEI 2009 IEEE Catalog Number: CFP0993D). CISP’09-
BMEI’09 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Engineering in Medicine
and Biology Society.

Tianjin is one of the four municipalities in China. It is a financial
and commercial center in North China and is known for its numerous
travel resources and rich history, such as the Huangyaguan Great Wall,
Dule Temple, Panshan Mountain and Food Street. It takes only 30 minutes
to travel between Tianjin and Beijing by high-speed train.

The registration fee of US$420 includes lunches, dinners, and banquet.
The previous CISP'09-BMEI'09 attracted over 2600 submissions from more
than 30 countries.

CISP'09-BMEI'09 aims to provide a high-level international forum for
scientists and researchers to present the state of the art of
multimedia, signal processing, biomedical engineering, and biomedical
informatics.

For more information, visit the conference web page:

If you have any questions after visiting the conference web page,
please email the secretariat at cisp2009@tjut.edu.cn

Join us at this major event in historic Tianjin !!!

With best regards,

CISP'09-BMEI'09 Organizing Committee
