One of the many fake papers that the IEEE conferences have

See also






  1. In 2008 and 2009, several computer generated (gibberish) conference articles, with fictitious authors, appeared in IEEE Xplore Data Base coming from many IEEE Sponsored events. Other poor quality conference articles have also, occasionally, appeared in IEEE Confererences and consequently in IEEE Xplore. The IEEE itself accepted (see http://www.ieee.org/web/aboutus/corporate/board/ad_hoc_committees/qualityofconferencepapers.html )that such articles hurted the reputation of IEEE and destroyed confidence in the quality of IEEE publications. IEEE tried to find solutions against this vulnerability but in vain, because much more bougus papers appeared in the next months (see http://iaria-highsci.blogspot.com and http://blog.marcelotoledo.org/2008/12/26/how-can-someone-trust-ieee )

  2. How can I add my name in the List against IEEE racism


  3. About IEEE fake conferences, you can visit our web page:

    New List of fake papers in IEEE with noticeable acceptance
    new bogus papers in IEEE
    What a SHAME for IEEE

    1) Rob Thomas: Rooter: A Methodology for the Typical Unification of
    Access Points and Redundancy, 2005 for WMSCI (see above)
    Technical Co-Sponsored by IEEE!

    2) Professor Genco G=FClan published a paper in the 3rd International
    Symposium of Interactive Media Design

    3) IEEE IARIA Conference accepted another bogus paper:

    4) A paper titled "Towards the Simulation of E-Commerce" by Herbert
    got accepted as a reviewed paper at the "International Conference on
    Computer Science and Software Engineering"
    (CSSE) and was briefly in the IEEE Xplore Database
    . The author is named after the Swedish short film Der Schlangemann.
    Furthermore the author was invited to be a session chair during the
    Read the official Herbert Schlangemann Blog for details[11].

    The official review comment: "This paper presents cooperative
    technology and classical Communication.
    In conclusion, the result shows that though the much-touted amphibious
    algorithm for the refinement
    of randomized algorithms is impossible, the well-known client-server
    algorithm for the
    analysis of voice-over- IP by Kumar and Raman runs in _(n) time. The
    authors can clearly
    identify important features of visualization of DHTs and analyze them
    insightfully. It is
    recommended that the authors should develop ideas more cogently,
    organizes them more
    logically, and connects them with clear transitions"

    6) In 2009, the same incident happened and Herbert Schlangemann's
    latest fake paper "PlusPug:
    A Methodology for the Improvement of Local-Area Networks" has been
    accepted for oral
    presentation at another international computer science conference

  4. Recently, Denis Baggi, Chairman, IEEE CS confessed, according to
    a comment on the Schlangemann Blog, that "Selection criteria such a
    refereeing etc. are meaningless", probably means that IEEE has
    accepted the unreliability and bogusity of its conferences. Denis
    Baggi also adds: "Articles should be written only if someone has
    something to tell others, in which case the validity of the paper is

    7) Recently, fake papers appeared in several IEEE conferences,
    because the IEEE grants its name and its logo to many local organizers
    who supposedly do
    not conduct a thorough review process. It is being argued that such
    conferences only
    exist to make money out of researchers that are looking for a simple
    way to publish their work,
    in particular publishers like IARIA, http://www.iaria.org, HIGHSCI
    http://www.highsci.org and SRP
    http://www.scirp.org appear questionable. As seen from their web
    sites, IARIA, HIGHSCI and SRP
    use the name of IEEE and the IEEE publishing services, thus attracting
    numerous papers.

  5. Yes, these fake SCIgen papers is a shame for IEEE.
    I checked the site www.iaria.org
    All their conferences are published by IEEE Press.
    I imagine how many junk papers or at least very low quality papers are now in IEEEXplore Data Base

  6. A great number of SCIgen papers have been accepted in these organizations:

    1. IEEE

    2. IARIA

    3. HIGHSCI


    5. IEEE Computational Intelligence

    6. IEEE Sensors

    Try to find details via Google!!!!

    Many fake papers in IEEE really during the last 5 years!
    No doubt about the unreliability of IEEE then.
    The major problem of IEEE is called IARIA in my opinion, however, many other Conferences of IEEE (not only those that are co-organized by IARIA) are absolutely garbage. For example, IEEE conference in Istanbul, Turkey that distributed "gold diplomas" to everybody, IEEE fake conference of IEEE Computational Intelligence Division, IEEE junk conference on Sensors in New Zeland (October 2009) and many many others.....

  7. The IEEE does not have good name for its conferences, but the IEEE Transactions (Journals) are of exceptional quality.
    The IEEE Conferences are garbage.

  8. IEEE Computer Society seems to have a serious problem
    Dear IEEE,
    since Herbert Schlangemann published an award-winning paper at the CSSE conference in December 2008, he is an expert in all areas of science. That is what the organizers of the "3rd International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (iCBBE 2009)" might have thought when they asked Dr. Schlangemann to review several papers for their conference. And they did not only ask Herbert Schlangemann, but they wrote emails to Mr. "Die Himmel ist schön" and Dr. "Liu Laoshi". For those of you who don't know about these outstanding researchers, they were named during the submission of "Towards the Simulation of E-Commerce" as potential reviewer and found their way to a reviewer list.

    "Dear Die Himmel Ist Schoen:
    The 3rd International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (iCBBE 2009) will be held on June 11-13, 2009 in Beijin, China. The paper review process has been started, and we cordially invite you to review some of the manuscripts. [...]"

    Is this your regular way of selecting reviewers for your conferences? Remember, you call yourself "The world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology". How could somebody like Mr. "Die Himmel ist schön" possibly do a review for an IEEE supported conference?

    We just want to give you the opportunity to read one of the masterpieces we've received for review. For those of you who don't believe us, this "paper" was really submitted to the iCBBE2009 conference with the intention of being published in the IEEEXplore database. Please apologize if we offer it online and violate your copyright regulations, but there was no note for the reviewer to keep it confidential.

  9. I found also this in many blogs and it is correct:


    A letter from Evan M. Butterfield (Director of Products & Services, IEEE Computer Society10662 Los Vaqueros Circle, Los Alamitos, CA 90720714.816.2165) informed in Jan 17, 2009 the following:

    The IEEE Computer Society (CS) has evidence that multiple (IEEE) conferences are receiving machine-generated papers. In two cases, conferences have actually accepted an obviously fraudulent submission. This is a serious issue that threatens the credibility of your conference, the quality of the digital library, and the reputation of both the IEEE and CS. It requires your immediate attention. Please take this opportunity to ensure that your peer review processes are being followed, and adapt to any new requirements that may be communicated by the IEEE or the Computer Society. No conference published by CPS should rely on an abstract review. It is very important that you review carefully the full text of all papers submitted to your conference. If you have already accepted papers, your program committee should review the full text again. While CPS staff will be conducting random spot-checks of conference papers in the publishing queue, we are relying on you to authenticate the content of your proceedings. Any papers that were not actually presented at your conference need to be brought to our attention, and should receive close review. In known cases, the machine-generated origin is obvious from a reading of the first few paragraphs of the paper; the abstracts are human-generated and do not indicate the quality of the paper itself. In the past, papers have been submitted by “Herbert Schlangemann,” but be mindful that the perpetrator of this fraud will change the approach over time. In the event you discover any evidence of questionable content or behavior, please communicate that to us immediately along with an action plan for addressing the problem. Thank you for your help in maintaining the quality of our products. See: http://bogusconferences.blogspot.com/2009/05/bogus-conferences-ieee-confess.html

  10. I believe that the IEEE is a criminal organization. They do not know to authorize honest professors to run their conferences. I am the Hotel Manager in Radisson Blu (SAS) Berlin. IEEE guys had a conference in Radisson Blu (SAS) Berlin hotel and left without paying the bill.
