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.

Commercial Advertizement and poppycock from Bogus IADIS conferences

Commercial Advertizement and poppycock from Bogus IADIS conferences follows. IADIS, IAENG, IARIA, IASTED, IMACS, IACSIT, are web sites with numerous bogus conferences. Do not include in your Biography nothing from IADIS, IAENG, IARIA, IASTED, IMACS, IACSIT junk publications. In the SPAM from IADIS we learn "Following your last year participation as member of the Program Committee of Web Based Communities and Social Media". This sentence was sent by email to millions of email addresses. They also write: "As a member of the committee, you will get some papers to review in the topics you select. You are entitled to be part of the proceedings book and CD-ROM." and "Can I just ask you for a couple of names that could also be part of this committee? The idea is to increase the number of members in the committee in order to reduce the committee members' workload". You will find to much poppycock in their spam -see below




Dear Colleague,

We are co-chairing the IADIS Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (MCCSIS 2013), a conference made of 13 conferences in the broad areas of Computer Science and Information Systems (please see http://www.mccsis.org).
Following your last year participation as member of the Program Committee of Web Based Communities and Social Media, I would like to re-invite you to take part in this year's edition (please see http://www.webcommunities-conf.org/).

If you agree, we would like to ask you to access the reviewer's web site at http://www.conf-system.org/confman_wbc2013/index_reviewer.asp (see your login and password at the bottom of this email) in order to choose your areas of interest/expertise so that we can assign you some papers for review - please choose at least a minimum of 3 areas. Can you do this within the next days?


As a member of the committee, you will get some papers to review in the topics you select (topics list available at http://www.webcommunities-conf.org/call-for-papers). You are entitled to be part of the proceedings book and CD-ROM.

Can I just ask you for a couple of names that could also be part of this committee? The idea is to increase the number of members in the committee in order to reduce the committee members' workload.

Also, can you please send me your address so that we can send you a CD-ROM with the proceedings of the 2013 edition?

Could you please let me know whether you accept this invitation?

Hope to see you again being part of this IADIS conference.

Best regards,
Piet Kommers, University of Twente, The Netherlands

    www.icnaam.org is a Fake Conference with several bogus papers accepted and published.
    Every abstract that you send to them receives "Letter of Acceptance"
    I will send this email to my friends and colleagues.
    Shame for AIP

  3. I participated in many IEEE Conferences in Malaysia and Singapore. I published 8 common papers and I had never received any comment, any remark, any question from IEEE, except sometime in 2011, that I got some minor remark about the format of my paper. These IEEE Conferences in Malaysia and Singapore are of dubious quality and maybe they are good schemes for making money for their organizers. We call them bogus, fake.
