SUBMISSION OF
PAPERS:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by
uploading them
to the evaluation web site at:
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=sam12
Submissions
must be uploaded by March 12, 2012 and they must be in
either MS doc or pdf
formats (about 7 pages including all figures,
tables, and references - single
space, font size of 10 to 12). All
reasonable typesetting formats are
acceptable (later, the authors of
accepted papers will be asked to follow a
particular typesetting format
to prepare their final papers for publication.)
Papers must not have
been previously published or currently submitted for
publication
elsewhere. The first page of the paper should include: title of
the
paper, name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for
each
author. The first page should also identify the name of the Contact
Author
and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
content
of the paper. The name of the conference (ie, SAM) that the paper
is
being submitted for consideration must be stated on the first page of
the
paper as well as a 100 to 150-word abstract. The length of the
final
Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column
IEEE
style) pages.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in
the field for originality,
significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In
cases of contradictory
recommendations, a member of the conference program
committee will be charged
to make the final decision (accept/reject); often,
this would involve seeking
help from additional referees by using a
double-blinded review process. In
addition, all papers whose authors include
a member of the conference program
committee will be evaluated using the
double-blinded review process.
(Essay/philosophical papers will not be
refereed but may be considered for
discussion/panels). Proceedings of SAM
will be published and indexed in:
Inspec / IET / The Institute for
Engineering & Technology, DBLP / CS
Bibliography, & others. The
printed proceedings/books will be available for
distribution on site at the
conference.

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected
authors will be
invited to submit extended versions of their papers for
publication in a
number of research books contracted with various publishers
(such as,
Springer, Elsevier, ...) - these books will be composed after
the
conference. Also, many chairs of tracks will be forming journal
special
issues to be published after the conference.


PROPOSAL FOR
ORGANIZING CONFERENCE TRACKS:

SAM 2012 is composed of a number of tracks.
A track can be a session,
a workshop, or a symposium. A session will have at
least 6 papers; a
workshop at least 12 papers; and a symposium at least 18
papers. Track
chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their tracks,
including:
soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, ... The names of track
chairs
will appear as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and
on
the cover of the printed books (and indexed in science databases as
such).

Proposals to organize tracks (sessions, workshops, or symposiums)
should
include the following information: name and address (+ email) of
proposer,
his/her biography, title of track, a 100-word description of the
topic of
the track, the name of the conference (ie, SAM) the track is
submitted
for consideration, and a short description on how the track will
be
advertised (in most cases, track proposers solicit papers from
colleagues
and researchers whose work is known to the track proposer). E-mail
your
track proposal to Dr. Gevorg Margarov ( [log in to unmask] ) or Dr. Sergey
Morozov
( [log in to unmask] ). We
would like to receive the track proposals

and dates)
with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP). WORLDCOMP
is the
largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science,
computer
engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have 2,100 or
more
attendees from over 80 countries. WORLDCOMP 2012 will be composed
of
research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations,
tutorials,
panel discussions, and poster presentations. In recent past,
keynote/
tutorial/panel speakers have included: Prof. David A. Patterson

Window
System, xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of
Genetic
Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program
Director,
U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer, U. of
Southern
California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director and
Consultant),
Prof. Jun Liu (pioneer, Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard
U.),
Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi
(Head,
NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate Director,
Project
Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab, CalTech/NASA;
Director,
NASA's JPL Solar System Exploration), Prof. David Lorge Parnas
(Fellow
of IEEE, ACM, RSC, CAE, GI; Dr.h.c.: ETH Zurich, Prof.
Emeritus,
McMaster U. and U. of Limerick), Prof. Eugene H. Spafford
(Executive
Director, CERIAS and Professor, Purdue University), Dr.
Sandeep

An important mission of
WORLDCOMP is "Providing a unique platform for
a diverse community of
constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and
practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to
participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities,
institutions, corporations, government agencies,
and research centers/labs)
from all over the world. The congress also
attempts to connect participants
from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are
affiliated with institutions that
have research as their main mission. The
congress uses a quota system to
achieve its institution and geography
diversity objectives."

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a
spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a
coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This
model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields
of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing.
The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and
inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased
opportunities for
cross-fertilization across
sub-disciplines.


MEASURABLE SCIENTIFIC IMPACT OF WORLDCOMP:

As
of November 23, 2011, papers published in WORLDCOMP set of proceedings
have
received 15,860 citations. In recent months (March to November 2011),
there
had been 1,475 citations to WORLDCOMP papers (about 164 citations per
month).
The above record is significant (thanks to the authors). As the
result of
high impact (based on citations) of WORLDCOMP papers, "Microsoft
Academic
Search" has listed each individual track of the congress among its
compiled
list of "Top Conferences". The citation record of WORLDCOMP set
of
proceedings is in fact higher than the citation data of many
reputable
journals in computer science and computer engineering. (The above
citation
data does not include citations to WORLDCOMP papers published in
2011; thus,
it is highly probable that the actual number of citations is
higher;
citation data was obtained from http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ )
