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 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!.

date Sat, Jan 17, 2009 at 4:03 AMsubject Confidential: Important CPS Message Regarding Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions

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.



WE RECEIVED THIS EMAIL: Prof. DARIO PETRI accepted the bad quality of IEEE Sponsored conferences,,,,,,"" <>,,

An impressive declaration from Prof. DARIO PETRI

Dear Mario,

I believe that many IEEE (sponsored or co-sponsored) conferences are quite bogusbecause they have published a lot of fake papers from SCIgen automatic machineor papers of low quality...We must be careful, otherwise our massive policy for giving the name of IEEE to strangeorganizers will harm the reputation of IEEE conference, if we have kept any rank of such an old reputation.

  1. I sent my registration to the conference of IEEE and these people took my money from my Credit Card and they did not publish my 2 papers. My 2 papers were accepted and I received letter of acceptance for both but without comments.
    Now, I told them to give my money back.
    However, Prof. Youtao Zhang from the University of Pittsburgh told me : "We decided not to publish your papers, but sorry, now we cannot give you your money back, because you came in the conference and participated as simple listener.
    What do you advice me to do?
    I am stressing that I received letter of acceptance for both of my papers (even without comments). Please, write my personal testimony in your blog.

    G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan Plagiarism Case - Anna University, India

    We were informed that a paper recently published contains plagiarized texts from other already published articles. Here's the details:

    Paper Title: An Economical Model for Optimal Distribution of Loads for Grid Applications
    Journal Reference: (IJCNS) International Journal of Computer and Network Security, Vol. 1, No. 1, pp 62-66, October 2009
    Authors: G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan
    Authors' Affiliation: Department of Computer Science and Engineering Anna University, Chennai 600 025, India
    Paper Link:

    While we went through the paper (not completely), we found that texts at different location of the paper were copied word by word from the following listed articles (by the way, you can check yourself, do the search on Google):

    1. Multi-Source Grid Scheduling for Divisible Loads by TG Robertazzi (2006)

    2. QoS Guided Min-Min Heuristic for Grid Task Scheduling by HE Xiaoshan

    3. A static jobs scheduling for independent jobs in Grid Environment by using Fuzzy C-Mean and Genetic algorithms by S Lorpunmanee (2006)

    4. Grid Scheduling Divisible Loads from Multiple Sources via Linear Programming by M.A. Moges (2004)

    5. Resource-Aware Distributed Scheduling Strategies for Large-Scale Computational Cluster/Grid Systems by S Viswanathan (2007)

    6. Divisible Load Scheduling for Grid Computing by D Yu (2003)

    We stop reviewing this article at page number 2, column 1, as the amount of copied texts is ENORMOUS!!!! A REAL SHAME!!!

    Due to limited resources we won't be able to go through the entire paper which is 5 pages long!! So definitely, there may be other people works that these people have plagiarized!! We will be grateful if someone can check this and report to us so that we can update this post for all our readers.

    We further noticed that they published a similar paper, probably with a 80%-90% similarities in the content (trying to hit 2 birds with 1 stone):

    Paper Title: An Economic Allocation of Resources for Multiple Grid Applications
    Journal Reference: Proceedings of the World Congress on Engineering and Computer Science 2009 Vol I WCECS 2009, October 20-22, 2009, San Francisco, USA
    Authors: G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan
