Do not trust IEEE at all. They gave again IEEE sponsorship to the absolutely Junk ITAP conference ITAP 2012 http://www.itapconf.org/2012/

and today I received this email:

Conclusion: IEEE fake conferences will continue their tradition for accepting bogus papers, etc....
Recently IEEE removed from its IEEExplore On-line E-library the (past) proceedings from 1100 fake conferences. Now IEEE continues collaborations with the organizers of these IEEE junk conferences. The IEEE junk conferences of Yanxiang He were removed from IEEExplore, but in 2012, IEEE sold its brand name again to Yanxiang He for running the fake IEEE conference: ITAP 2012. A little Google search Fake IEEE conferences of Yanxiang He will convince you.
