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.

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.

  SDM2014: The 14TH SIAM International Conference on Data Mining  (Bogus SIAM - SPAM Meeting. The name of this conference was stolen by SIAM. The International Conference on Data Mining Conference )
                   Call for Workshops (Alert: Fake SIAM Conference)
                     Deadline: September 27, 2013
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The SDM14 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide
participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of knowledge discovery and data mining. Ideally a
workshop should foster interactions between different communities within the scope of SDM (e.g. statisticians, computer scientists, data scientists, etc. from
industry, academia, etc.). A workshop should not be a mini-conference, but rather it should encourage the presentation of novel ideas, even if they are in an
early stage of development, contact between different points of view, and active exchanges between participants. Therefore publishing notes is optional for the
SDM workshops.

The responsibilities of the workshop organizers include

- preparing the call for papers and publicizing it,

- maintaining the workshop web site,

- deciding the workshop program content; this may optionally include inviting speakers, inviting reviewers, selecting the papers through a peer review process
delivering the notes to the press in time (if the workshop organizers decide to publish notes), and

- delivering the final workshop program to the workshop chair in time.

Workshop proposals should be prepared as a Web page and its URL sent via e-mail to the SDM14 Workshop co-chairs: Tina Eliassi-Rad (tina@eliassi.org) and Amol
Ghoting (aghoting@us.ibm.com) by September 27, 2013 11:59 PM PST.  You will receive an acknowledgment of receipt within 24 hours. Please ping us if you do not
receive a receipt within 24 hours.

A workshop proposal should include the following information:

- Workshop title

- Full contact information of the organizers

- Description of the workshop including objectives

- Content, topics of interest. For workshops, a description of the format (e.g., invited talks, round table, accepted presentations, etc.) should be included.

- Please indicate your preference regarding the length of the workshop: Half-day or full-day.

- A short description of the target audience.

- List of potential participants: For workshops this could include potential program committee members, potential authors and invited speakers.

- A summary of previous editions of the workshop (if it was run before), with an emphasis on number of attendees and paper submissions.

- A short biography of each organizer.

Proposals will be judged based on the above information.

Particular preference will be given to proposals that demonstrate the ability to foster interactions among multiple communities, as noted above. We prefer
workshops in which there is participation of diverse people who may not have worked with one another in the past, or which bridge between traditional SDM topics
and communities and other fields. External sources of funding or sponsorship for special events held along with the workshop (e.g. invited talks, poster session)
can be optionally included in the proposal submission.

For any question regarding SDM14 Workshops, please contact the workshop co-chairs: Tina Eliassi-Rad (tina@eliassi.org) and Amol Ghoting  (aghoting@us.ibm.com)
with subject line: SIAM SDM14.

Important Dates:

Submission of Workshop Proposals: September 27, 2013

Notifications: October 28, 2013

Workshop Websites Linked to SDM'14: November 7, 2013

Final Workshop Notes to SDM with Program: February 14, 2014

Nowadays technology plays a key role in changing the world for the benefit of humanity: IEEE must continue to be the global lead in this scenario. With the extraordinary expertise that our technology-centric communities can offer, together we can face this challenge and enhance our profession by:
- Being the trusted source for high-quality innovative and timely knowledge in current, interdisciplinary and novel fields, increasing responsiveness to the needs of scientists, practicing professionals, and students, and attracting new communities and the general public;
- Promoting inclusive internationalization and preserving diversity of technological expertise, profession, culture, geographical origin, gender, and age, while acting holistically in the evolving international scenarios and nurturing our local identities and communities;
- Empowering technology-centric communities worldwide by addressing their needs with a human-centered approach, seeking for more networking opportunities through social networks and new media sources, broadly engaging the young generations, and intensifying synergic alliances with local and international associations.
