Submission of Papers:
Prospective authors are invited to submit their full paper
(about 5 to 8 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to
H. R. Arabnia by Mar. 2, 2007 ([log in to unmask]). E-mail submissions
in MS Doc or PDF formats are preferable (postal mail submissions
are also fine.) All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable
(later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a
particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for publication.)
The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to
7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously published
or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of
the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation,
postal address, email address, and telephone number for each author.
The first page should also identify the name of the author who will
be presenting the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 topical
keywords that would best represent the content of the paper.
Each paper will be refereed by two experts in the field who are
independent of the conference program committee. The referees'
evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of the program
committee who will recommend a decision to the chair of the track that
the paper has been submitted to. The track chair will make the final
decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by one
member of the program committee.
Members of Program and Organizing Committees:
The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy
of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; artificial
intelligence; imaging science; databases; simulation; software
engineering; embedded systems; internet and web technologies;
communications; computer security; and bioinformatics.) Many members
of the program committee for individual conferences include renowned
leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and practitioners of the
highest ranks; many are directors of large research laboratories,
IEEE Fellows, heads/chairs of departments, deans and provosts.
Each committee also includes two Student Members (in their final stages
of their PhD programs) who are identified as such. Refer to the
conference web sites for the list of members of program committee.

- H2cM - Hodges' Health, UK
Purpose / History:
FECS'07 will be held in conjunction with WORLDCOMP'07
WORLDCOMP'07 is the largest gathering of researchers in computer
science, computer engineering and applied computing.
Many of the tracks of WORLDCOMP are considered to be the premier
meetings for presentation of advances in their respective fields.
We anticipate to have 2000 or more attendees from over 75
countries participating in the 2007 event.
The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research
conferences into a coordinated research meeting held in a common
place at a common time. The main goal is to provide a forum for
exchange of ideas in a number of research areas that interact. The
model used to form these annual conferences facilitates communication
among researchers from all over the world in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Both
inward research (core areas of computer science and engineering) and
outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and
applications) will be covered during the conferences.
