We would like to invite you to submit a draft paper/extended abstract to The 16th World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics: WMSCI 2012 (http://www.2012iiisconferences.org/wmsci), to be held in Orlando, Florida, USA, on July 17-20, 2012.
Thank you for forwarding this information to those potentially interested in making a submission.
The deadlines are the following:
Papers/Abstracts Submission and Invited Session Proposals: November 16th, 2011
Authors Notifications: January 20th, 2012
Camera-ready, full papers: February 28th, 2012
(Check the web site for possible extensions)
Collocated events are listed at http://www.iiis.org/iiis/csd . Participants can attend any session of the collocated events and will receive a CD with the papers of all the collocated events
Technical keynote speakers will be selected from early submissions because this selection requires an additional evaluation according to the quality of the paper, assessed by its reviewers, the authors’ CV and the paper’s topic.
Submissions for *Face-to-Face* or for *Virtual* Participation are both accepted. Both kinds of submissions will have the same reviewing process and the accepted papers will be included in the same proceedings.
All Submitted papers/abstracts will go through three reviewing processes: (1) double-blind (at least three reviewers), (2) non-blind, and (3) participative peer reviews. These three kinds of review will support the selection process of those papers/abstracts that will be accepted for their presentation at the conference, as well as those to be selected for their publication in JSCI Journal.
Pre-Conference and Post-conference Virtual sessions (via electronic forums) will be held for each session included in the conference program, so that sessions papers can be read before the conference, and authors presenting at the same session can interact during one week before and after the conference. Authors can also participate in peer-to-peer reviewing in virtual sessions.
Authors of accepted papers who registered in the conference can have access to the evaluations and possible feedback provided by the reviewers who recommended the acceptance of their papers/abstracts, so they can accordingly improve the final version of their papers. Non-registered authors will not have access to the reviews of their respective submissions.
Registration fees of an effective invited session organizer will be waived according to the policy described in the conference web page (click on ‘Invited Session’ and, then, on ‘Benefits for the Organizers of Invited Sessions’), where you can get information about the ten benefits for an invited session organizer. For Invited Sessions Proposals, please press the menu option ‘Invited Sessions’ and, then, the sub-option ‘Invited Sessions Organizers’.
Authors of the best 10%-20% of the papers presented at the conference (included those virtually presented) will be invited to adapt their papers for their publication in the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics.
