Dear Xue and others:
Happy Chinese New Year - I would be most grateful if you would post the CFP below
to the p2p list. As you can see, "decentralized computer networks" is an
important part of ICWN.
With kind regards - Hamid

Members of the Steering Committee of WORLDCOMP 2010:


ICWN'10 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 (as part of the federated event):
Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer/computer architecture, U. of
California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as Father of
Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of Genetic
Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster (known as Father of
Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL), Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer/VR,
U. of California, Berkeley), Prof. Barry Vercoe (Founding member of
MIT Media Lab, MIT), Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X
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 &
Consultant), Prof. Jun Liu (Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.),
Anousheh Ansari (CEO, Prodea Systems & first female private space
explorer), and many other distinguished speakers. To get a feeling
about the conferences' atmosphere, see the 2009 delegates photos
available at: http://www.pixagogo.com/1672514104
Featured keynote speakers for 2010 are (confirmed):
Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic) and Dr. Firouz Naderi
(Head, NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate Director,
Project Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab, CalTech/NASA).


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
them to the evaluation web site at:
Submissions must be uploaded by March 1, 2010 and they must be
in either MS doc (but not docx) or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages
- 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.)

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, 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.

All accepted papers will be published in the respective conference
proceedings (in both, printed book form as well as online). The
proceedings will be indexed in Inspec / IET / The Institute for
Engineering and Technology, DBLP / Computer Science Bibliography,
and others.) The printed proceedings 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 being proposed/contracted
with various publishers (such as, Springer, Elsevier, IOS, ...) -
these books would be composed after the conference. Also, many
chairs of sessions and workshops will be forming journal special
issues to be published after the conference.


   March 1, 2010:    Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages)
   March 25, 2010:   Notification of acceptance
   April 22, 2010:   Final papers + Copyright + Registration
