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:
http://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/docs/00/71/35/55/PDF/0-FakeDetectionSci-Perso.pdf
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

it is yet another IEEE fake conference

A new bogus multiconference from IEEE. Do not go to these fake IEEE Conferences. Be careful. The Scientific Credibility is ZERO

Avoid Fake IEEE. Do you think that we are not right when we try to reveal the fake conferences (mainly from IEEE)? See this web page. No need to comme

Do you think that we are not right when we try to reveal the fake conferences (mainly from IEEE)? See this web page. No need to comment. Having this web site
http://www.grs-association.org/icrs2010/contact.htm
it is the same if these people would say "Attention: We are a fake conference organization in collaboration with IEEE. Come and Enjoy our FAKE Conference that will publish its proceedings in IEEE"

http://www.grs-association.org/icrs2010/contact.htm

Read this web page http://www.grs-association.org/

No organization grs-association exists!

In fact the front page http://www.grs-association.org is closed
Do you wander why?
See also their Spam Email (Fake conferences without Spam cannot exist)
The following equivalency could be a Theorem in a paper that can easily be accepted,
can easily presented and easily accepted in this kind of "conferences"

THEOREM:
Junk (or Spam or Bogus) conference <===> Publication in IEEE Xplore <===> SPAM


This is their typical Spam (some fonts in chinese)

Apologies for cross-postings? or apologies for organizing fake conferences? or even Apologies for accepting SCIgen (software generated silly texts)

Apologies for cross-postings? or apologies for organizing fake conferences? or even Apologies for accepting SCIgen (software generated silly texts)
These are the IADIS notoriously bogus conferences. Avoid them and reject academic CVs of candidates containing IADIS Publications and IADIS fake conferences.
Do not refund registration fees of participants in IADIS junk conference. They spam us everyday.



Apologies for cross-postings. Please send to interested colleagues and students
