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.

New Frauds from IEEE at India: Fake IEEE Projects

Fake IEEE Projects - Yamee Cluster, Vellalar Street, Adambakkam,Chennai-88
Dear All, Please do not buy any IEEE projects from Yamee Cluster,Chennai. We students from Madurai, asked for latest IEEE-2011 projects ......they charged us Rs.4000 per student and gave one IEEE project stating it as the latest IEEE 2011 project. After few months we got to know from our friends, what they gave us was a 2008 IEEE project. They generally rename/modify the 2008/2009 IEEE projects and sell it as 2011 IEEE projects in Chennai. They do not provide a big technical support too.When we questioned about this, they are not even responding to our calls. After getting the money from us, they cheated us nicely. So students, please don't get cheated from this project center - YameeCluster . One of the worst fake company who sells IEEE projects at very high cost and gives the fake IEEE-2011 projects. Please do not get cheated from this Yamee cluster -the fraud.

  1. Fake IEEE MED conferences:
    These conferences are organized by the "Mediterranean Control Association"
    However, this "Association" is a Company based in USA by a Greek Professor.
    We sent them two papers describing the equipment of our laboratory.
    We copied the manual of Inverted Pendulum and we got the acceptance letter after
    some days. So, for sure include in your fake conferences list the
    Fake IEEE MED conferences

  2. Unfortunately, our commentor was right.
    We checked it and we found that this "Mediterranean Control Association" is a company registered in United States of America
    Check it yourself: http://nd.edu/~pantsakl/MCA/
    and not in Mediterranean as they claim.
    After sending emails to several previous participants, we got a reply:

    I have sent them papers twice. They had been accepted without any modification and without any review comments. Our registration fees were sent to the company MCA in USA and not to any non-profit club in some Mediterranean Country. At that time, we did not wonder why. The conference services were poor in both times and most of the sessions were empty or completely cancelled.

    However, the beaches and the swimming pools were full of "IEEE MED" delegates.

    Maybe, controlists are inspired in their pioneer ideas in the sea or in the swimming pool, especially if they are any (semi-)naked women around.

    We have also noticed that they called their conferences as "IEEE Conferences" in the previous years, while they were only technically co-sponsored by IEEE.

    This year, 2012, they follow lower profile. So, they do not call their Conference "20th IEEE Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation"
    but only "20th Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation".

    We have heard that they had serious problems with IEEE Head Quarters, most probably because their conferences had published several junk papers.

    Interesting! isn't it?

    1. Almost all the IEEE Conferences are WITHOUT review.
      It is enough for the organizers to ensure the Co-sponsorship of IEEE and then it is enough to start advertisements by email or in the local scientific magazines of their country that they are authorized to run an "IEEE" conference (or "IEEE" multiconference). They print out great advertizing posters with a very big picture of IEEE logo. Sometimes they make several phone calls. They know that the personal phone calls are better than the Email Spam. I was called by a colleague last December to participate in his IEEE conference. I told him that I am not an expert in the field of this conference, but he insisted that I am inside the scopes of the meeting. I sent them 5 papers. All of them passed without review.
      When I asked them why I did not took any review, he told me "your papers were really excellent". I do not say that my papers were bad, but at least, I wanted to have some opinions, some comments, some ideas. I was waiting for them, but nothing. Finally, we made some negotations with registration fees. With 5 accepted papers I had to pay 2000 Dollars. Fortunately, my "good" colleague made a generous discount for me and I paid only 1500 Dollars providing that I would say good comments and positive opinion for his IEEE conference to my friends. I did it. However, I am writing you now the truth for this bogus IEEE conference.
