Full Title: The 2008 World Congress in Computer Science
Short Title: WORLDCOMP'08

Date: 14-Jul-2008 - 17-Jul-2008
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Contact Person: Hamid R. Arabnia
Meeting Email: hrapixel.cviog.uga.edu
Web Site: http://www.world-academy-of-science.org

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 25-Feb-2008

Meeting Description:

This set of joint conferences is the largest annual gathering of researchers in
computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Many of the 25
joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the premier conferences for presentation of
advances in their respective fields. We anticipate to have 2,600 or more
attendees from over 80 countries participating in the 2008 joint conferences.

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.

WORLCOMP'08 will be composed of research presentations, keynote lectures,
invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and poster presentations.
In recent past, keynote and/or tutorial speakers included: Prof. Michael J.
Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H. Holland (U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. H.
J. Siegel (Colorado State U.); Prof. Barry Vercoe (MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U.
of California, Berkeley); Prof. David Cheriton (Stanford U.), Prof. A. K. Dunker
(Indiana U. and Purdue U.); Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys
(developer of X Window, ...); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica,
Inc.); and many other distinguished speakers.
