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.

Do not trust IEEE at all (We received this comment today)

As you can see, we have received this comment:

We think that our commenter is right and we republish his comment as a post causing possibly new comments and more discussion.

Do not trust IEEE at all. They gave again IEEE sponsorship to the absolutely Junk ITAP conference ITAP 2012 http://www.itapconf.org/2012/
I had received an email that IEEE retracted the co-sponsorship from ITAP
and today I received this email:

IEEE -ITAP2012---CALL FOR PAPERS
The 3rd International Conference on Internet Technology and Applications

The 3rd International Conference on Internet Technology and Applications (iTAP 2012) will be held from August 18~20, 2012 in Wuhan, China. The ITAP 2012 conference proceedings will be submitted to Ei Compendex databases for indexing.

The ITAP conference proceedings (2010, 2011) had all been indexed by Ei Compendex.

The topics include, but not limited to the followings:
....


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.

    You can check below that this conference is organized by SCIRP

    SCIRP is a junk organization published many times Proceedings with junk, bogus papers http://www.jjj.de/fake-conf.html


    This was the SPAM from SCIRP. Apparently this series of bogus SCIRP conferences has purchased the name and the logo of IEEE. Check it http://www.wicom-meeting.org/2012
