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!.

date Sat, Jan 17, 2009 at 4:03 AMsubject Confidential: Important CPS Message Regarding Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions


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 accept articles one week before the conference! IEEE Fake. IEEE Bogus. Bogus IEEE Conference. You can draw your own conclusions

This is the IEEE Spam that we received today.
This IEEE and SDIWC Conference is Bogus. We recommend against this bogus conference venue:

  1. Does the SPAM decide who will be the next IEEE President? Enjoy the IEEE Spam-elections. Bogus Techniques in IEEE Elections. Shame IEEE. Shame IEEE Officers. Shame Vincenzo Piuri
    Does the SPAM decide who will be the next IEEE President? Our mailboxes are currently full of a new disgusting IEEE political SPAM.
    Everyday, many SPAM campaigns from IEEE Candidates like Vincenzo Piuri and his fake and bogus techniques for the Chair of IEEE. (Chair of IEEE implies a lot of money from fake and bogus IEEE activities, like royalties from fake / bogus conferences, kickbacks from IEEE Standards etc)
    Why don't IEEE allow this kind of behaviours? Of course, we do not forget the hundreds of Computer-generated papers accepted in IEEE Data base: Click
    This is the IEEE Elections SPAM sent by some Vincenzo Piuri, IEEE Fellow (...Spamllow)
    Shame IEEE. Shame Vincenzo Piuri
    Dear Colleague,

    I'd like to remind you of the election below ( http://www.ieee.org/elections ) which will close October 1, 2013, 17:00 UTC.

    If you already voted for me, thank you!
    If you have not voted yet, I'd like to ask to consider voting for me.

    I'd also appreciate if you could help in spreading the voice and soliciting support from your colleagues, friends and graduate students (forwarding them my msg below).

    Thank you!

    ciao
    Vin (Vincenzo Piuri, the best IEEE President)

    P.S. Sorry for the double sending, just want to ensure first mail did not get lost in the summer pile :)

  2. I have received the same SPAM from IEEE-SPAM Fellow, Vincenzo Piuri.
    This person is ridiculous. He sents billions of emails to unrelatated people just enforcing them to vote him as President of IEEE. In some place of his email he says: I will be the best President of IEEE.
    I want to add: The best fake President (elected by SPAM campaigns) to the ridiculous IEEE.

    This was his spam
