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 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.



They claim that Fake Journals are these

We discovered using google a new blog with fake journals. We do not know what are their criteria for including a publishing house in their list of fake journals. Of course, many fake journals (most of them with "open access") appeared recently.
Any way, they claim that Fake Journals are these


  1. HI,

    Interesting to see the post on IADIS. I have the IADIS poster at my department, sometime two poster at once. Everytime I saw the poster, I always have a doubt on it- how can you have many conference in a year and each conference have lots of paper being accepted?

    My friend went to one of the IADIS conference last year and his supervisor (and all the staff in the department!!!!) was so proud about it. I feel like telling the supervisor that even if it was not a fake conference, it is a very low rating conference.

    I guess some people judge a conference quality based on its location rather than impact factor/acceptance rate!

    The fake list of journal is not correct some journals are recently launched ,how they can be fake we are not satisfy with

  3. IAENG Conferences. Ooo! IAENG conferences? Simply the absolute garbage bin of our academic world. Of course IEEE and ACM conferences are bogus, but IAENG are the worst. Be aware of IAENG fraudulent conferences and do not include the word IAENG in your CVs. IEEE and ACM have good journals but their conferences are without peer review and have publish from time to time several machine generated tests. Google: IEEE fake or IAENG fake or ACM fake.
    In the same wavelength of IEEE, IAENG, IADIS and ACM fake conferences, SIAM junk - bogus conferences are also tuned. SIAM has conferences with review ONLY on the Abstract that implies that SIAM conferences are totally fake and scam.

  4. SIAM=SPAM. One more bogus conference from SIAM. SIAM takes names from other conferences without their permission. The International Conference on Data Mining Conference has been hijacked by SIAM.
    The International Conference on Data Mining Conference has been hijacked by SIAM. The International conference on Data Mining was a conference, track of WORLDCOMP (Organizer Hamid Arabnia). Now, SIAM try to exterminate WORLDCOM and Hamid Arabnia and takes the WORLCOMP conferences one by one. Same name, but quite bogus and fake.
    This is a shame of the criminal society SIAM that send us million of SPAM emails every morning. Admire the SPAM of this predatory SIAM (SPAM) meeting.
    International Conference on Data Mining Conference has been hijacked by SIAM.
