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.

Fake IEEE Multiconference

From the site: http://iaria-highsci.blogspot.com/2010/08/fake-ieee-multiconference-because-fake.html


Fake IEEE Multiconference because a) fake Sub-conferences b) massive attacks in our computers by SPAM c) non review d) many bogus commercial profs


Fake IEEE Multiconference because a) fake Sub-conferences b) massive attacks in our computers by SPAM c) non review d) many bogus commercial profs
Here is a typical example of a Fake IEEE Multiconference
because

a) it is composed by numerous fake Sub-conferences
b) massive attacks in our computers by SPAM
c) non review or quite funny review (like add 2 more references and improve your english ... and pay our high registration fees of course )
d) many bogus commercial professors like Vincenzo Piuri a championer of Spam for IEEE Conferences. We cannot say that all the conferences of Vincenzo Piuri are bogus but many people that sent papers to them had never received a single line of reviewers' comments.
Vincenzo Piuri was a frequent IEEE (fake?) conferences organizer, for this reason, IEEE elevated him in IEEE Fellow lavel.

Enjoy the IEEE Spam for this Bogus Multiconference

Description:
This international event promotes all aspects of the theory and applications of Computational Intelligence. With its hosting of over thirty technical meetings in one location, it is bound to attract lead researchers, professionals and students from around the world. Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, the 2011 edition follows in the footsteps of the SSCI 2007 meetings held in Honolulu and of the SSCI 2009 series held in Nashville. The event will take place in the magic town of Paris.

Important dates:
Paper Submission Due: October 31, 2010
Notification to Authors: December 15, 2010
Camera-Ready Papers Due: January 15, 2011
