IEEE is the absolute COMMERCE. More IEEE Bogus Conferences. The absolute garbage of IEEE

They advertize their conferences as IEEE Conferences
See:
http://lib.hyit.edu.cn/news/xyxw/200907/388.html

But what kind of deal is that: They gave money to IEEE as a percent of the registration fees. So, the IEEE grant them Sponsorship in a exchange of money.
If this is not "commerce", then what is the commerce?

Fake IEEE Multiconference because a) fake Sub-conferences b) massive attacks in our computers by SPAM c) non review d) many bogus commercial profs

Here is a typical example of a Fake IEEE Multiconference
because

a) it is composed by numerous fake Sub-conferences
b) massive attacks in our computers by SPAM
c) non review or quite funny review (like add 2 more references and improve your english ... and pay our high registration fees of course )
d) many bogus commercial professors like Vincenzo Piuri a championer of Spam for IEEE Conferences. We cannot say that all the conferences of Vincenzo Piuri are bogus but many people that sent papers to them had never received a single line of reviewers' comments.

Vincenzo Piuri was a frequent IEEE (fake?) conferences organizer, for this reason, IEEE elevated him in IEEE Fellow lavel.

Enjoy the IEEE Spam for this Bogus Multiconference

How many SCIgen papers must appear in IEEE Xplore Data base in order to Stop? Why do the IEEE continue giving its services to this commerce?

A pyramid spam scheme from IEEE and IEEE Sub-Shops!

From this forum we fight the absolutely trade conferences IARIA and HIGHSCI. After our posts, IEEE stopped the collaboration with IARIA, but new IEEE-sponsored and IEEE-indexed fake conferences sprang. We are the blog where everything is proved by strong documents.

We put in black list conferences only with strong proofs. We respect the conference organizers and we do not classify any conference in our black list without reviewing its proceedings. Many other sites that have collections with "fake conferences" are simply poor attempts of some conference organizers to dis-advertise other conference organizers. Be careful.

However, the following email is an unmistakably proven spam email of a FAKE CONFERENCE from "IRAST" FAKE conferences.
What is IRAST? www.irast.org
Some commercial web site that uses the name of IEEE to promote its bogus conferences. Not one name of a scientist exists in their site. There is no president, no editorial, no committee. Nothing. Nothing. Enjoy their site
http://www.irast.org

Assuming that, indeed. this is a new scientific organization based in USA, as they claim in their site, then why do they run their first "conference" in Indonesia?
They have a phone number on their web. We tried repeatedly to contact them, but nobody replied.

But, the IEEE gave its name just for a commission in the conference fees. This is the demise of the IEEE.
They also have this sentence in their site (http://www.irast.org/conferences/DEIT/2011 ) as well as in their spam : "Bali is a favorite vacation destination for many nationalities."

Why do the IEEE continue selling its services to these commercial academicians?

What about the academic responsibility of IEEE?

How many SCIgen papers must appear in IEEE Xplore Data base in order to Stop these ... "academic" sponsorships and these ... "academic" collaborations in these exotic places?

Can IEEE reply to our questions?

This was their Spam:

Plagiarism Lines Blur for Students in Digital Age

From the site ,
http://crappyconference.blogspot.com/2010/08/plagiarism-lines-blur-for-students-in.html
we read

Plagiarism Lines Blur for Students in Digital Age

At Rhode Island College, a freshman copied and pasted from a Web site’s frequently asked questions page about homelessness — and did not think he needed to credit a source in his assignment because the page did not include author informatio

At DePaul University, the tip-off to one student’s copying was the purple shade of several paragraphs he had lifted from the Web; when confronted by a writing tutor his professor had sent him to, he was not defensive — he just wanted to know how to change purple text to black.

And at the University of Maryland, a student reprimanded for copying fromWikipedia in a paper on the Great Depression said he thought its entries — unsigned and collectively written — did not need to be credited since they counted, essentially, as common knowledge.

Professors used to deal with plagiarism by admonishing students to give credit to others and to follow the style guide for citations, and pretty much left it at that.

But these cases — typical ones, according to writing tutors and officials responsible for discipline at the three schools who described the plagiarism — suggest that many students simply do not grasp that using words they did not write is a serious misdeed.

It is a disconnect that is growing in the Internet age as concepts of intellectual property, copyright and originality are under assault in the unbridled exchange of online information, say educators who study plagiarism.

Digital technology makes copying and pasting easy, of course. But that is the least of it. The Internet may also be redefining how students — who came of age with music file-sharing,Wikipedia and Web-linking — understand the concept of authorship and the singularity of any text or image.

“Now we have a whole generation of students who’ve grown up with information that just seems to be hanging out there in cyberspace and doesn’t seem to have an author,” said Teresa Fishman, director of the Center for Academic Integrity at Clemson University. “It’s possible to believe this information is just out there for anyone to take.”

Professors who have studied plagiarism do not try to excuse it — many are champions of academic honesty on their campuses — but rather try to understand why it is so widespread.

In surveys from 2006 to 2010 by Donald L. McCabe, a co-founder of the Center for Academic Integrity and a business professor atRutgers University, about 40 percent of 14,000 undergraduates admitted to copying a few sentences in written assignments.

Perhaps more significant, the number who believed that copying from the Web constitutes “serious cheating” is declining — to 29 percent on average in recent surveys from 34 percent earlier in the decade.

Sarah Brookover, a senior at the Rutgers campus in Camden, N.J., said many of her classmates blithely cut and paste without attribution.

“This generation has always existed in a world where media and intellectual property don’t have the same gravity,” said Ms. Brookover, who at 31 is older than most undergraduates. “When you’re sitting at your computer, it’s the same machine you’ve downloaded music with, possibly illegally, the same machine you streamed videos for free that showed onHBOlast night.”

Ms. Brookover, who works at the campus library, has pondered the differences between researching in the stacks and online. “Because you’re not walking into a library, you’re not physically holding the article, which takes you closer to ‘this doesn’t belong to me,’ ” she said. Online, “everything can belong to you really easily.”

A University of Notre Dame anthropologist, Susan D. Blum, disturbed by the high rates of reported plagiarism, set out to understand how students view authorship and the written word, or “texts” in Ms. Blum’s academic language.

She conducted her ethnographic research among 234 Notre Dame undergraduates. “Today’s students stand at the crossroads of a new way of conceiving texts and the people who create them and who quote them,” she wrote last year in the book “My Word!: Plagiarism and College Culture,” published by Cornell University Press.

Ms. Blum argued that student writing exhibits some of the same qualities of pastiche that drive other creative endeavors today — TV shows that constantly reference other shows or rap music that samples from earlier songs.

In an interview, she said the idea of an author whose singular effort creates an original work is rooted in Enlightenment ideas of the individual. It is buttressed by the Western concept of intellectual property rights as secured by copyright law. But both traditions are being challenged.

“Our notion of authorship and originality was born, it flourished, and it may be waning,” Ms. Blum said.

She contends that undergraduates are less interested in cultivating a unique and authentic identity — as their 1960s counterparts were — than in trying on many different personas, which the Web enables with social networking.

“If you are not so worried about presenting yourself as absolutely unique, then it’s O.K. if you say other people’s words, it’s O.K. if you say things you don’t believe, it’s O.K. if you write papers you couldn’t care less about because they accomplish the task, which is turning something in and getting a grade,” Ms. Blum said, voicing student attitudes. “And it’s O.K. if you put words out there without getting any credit.”

The notion that there might be a new model young person, who freely borrows from the vortex of information to mash up a new creative work, fueled a brief brouhaha earlier this year with Helene Hegemann, a German teenager whose best-selling novel about Berlin club life turned out to include passages lifted from others.

IEEE sold its name again in Fake Conferences

It seems that the IEEE Publication and Indexing Services is a huge Scandal.
Our Blog started in 2008 when our blog discovered the huge IEEE Fraud with
IARIA Conferences and HIGHSCI Conferences.

Both of them have been checked so far for many fake papers and many fake conferences.
Some other blogs also like http://netdriver.blogspot.com/ went further and "certified" several fake conferences.
It seems that IEEE (after 3 years of voices from our blog and similar other web sites that
are specialized on Fake Conferences -- Google: IEEE Fake Conferences, or IEEE Bogus Conferences or IEEE Junk Conferences) has just stopped the "party" of the "paid vacations"
of IARIA Bogus Conferences.
Many Scientists have been relieved. However, we were not right.
IEEE stopped its Sponsorship to IARIA Bogus Conferences, because they did not agreed in the commission. So, IARIA conferences have not the IEEE Logo, IEEE Computer Society Press any longer.

Petre Dini (a scholar with Italian father and Romanian mother that lives and works in Canada) is really clever: He knows now that IEEE Brand Name is not so strong as it was 10 or 20 years ago after the revelation of so many IEEE fake conferences. So, he has refused to pay high commission (20-30%) from the registration fees that IARIA www.iaria.org derives to IEEE headquarters.

So, the IEEE did not stop the sponsorship to IARIA, because IEEE believes now that IARIA is a source of fake conferences, but because they did not make a commercial agreement this year.
In fact, IEEE is not interested if your conferences are real or fake. IEEE is not interested if your conferences are bogus or not; IEEE is not interested if your conferences are junk or not.
The only think that IEEE cares is a good commercial deal, i.e. how to take the maximum commission of the conference fees.

This is proved because IEEE continue sponsoring the HIGHSCHI Conferences inspite of their fake papers (SCIGEN Papers) that were months or years some times in IEEE Explore
http://diehimmelistschoen.blogspot.com/
Not only that, but also some new fake Societies and fake institutes (i.e. simple web pages without any scientific committee) have just started advertizing new conferences with the name, logo
publication services of IEEE
Typical Examples of suspect conferences that run fake conferences in 2010, 2011 with the brand name of IEEE are
1. HIGHSCI www.highsci.org (fake conferences that have been accepted junk papers some of them have been produced by SCIGEN, see http://diehimmelistschoen.blogspot.com/

2. IRAST www.irast.org (after the revelations of our site and after the emails that we sent to many IEEE officers -- IEEE stopped giving to these academic jerks the IEEE Name , IEEE
Logi etc.. but it in their emails, these people say that they will publish their proceedings with IEEE.

3. AICIT http://www.aicit.org/ . We read in the Blogs netdriver.blogspot.com , bogusconferences.blogspot.com that the IEEE will publish the proceedings of AICIT http://www.aicit.org/ with the IEEE Computer Scoeity press and IEEE Xplore.

4. http://www.world-research-institutes.org
See this site of www.world-research-institutes.org
A "good chain" of bogus conferences. There is not any Board of Directors etc... however, these jerks publish using the name, logo, and publication services of IEEE Computer Society Press and data bases of IEEEXplore

5. Many other isolated dubious conferences have announced that they have the support of IEEE
and/or they will publish their proceedings with IEEE CSPress and IEEEXplore.
There is a real email that is published on each web page of http://netdriver.blogspot.com/
where the IEEE has confessed the vulnerabilities in the IEEE "reviewing System" (if there is any!)
IF YOU FIND OTHER CONFERENCES THAT ARE DUBIOUS / JUNK / CRAPPY / BOGUS / FAKE etc... with or without the IEEE brand Name, report it to us by commenting this post.
See comments....

IARIA: A success of our blog. The IEEE will not publish the IARIA fake conferences' proceedings again. IARIA will not use anylonger the Logo of IEEE

IARIA www.iaria.org Breaking News
After the PROTESTS of our Blog and our emails, the IEEE stopped to its Sponsorship to IARIA fake conferences (the conferences that had accepted the paper:
http://jeffreybeall.blogspot.gr/2008/12/fantastic-paper-accepted-in-ieee.html
"A Statistical Method For Women That Can Help Our Sexual Education "
This fake paper was available for many months in IEEE Xplore Data Base

See this super paper and see the letter of acceptance http://jeffreybeall.blogspot.com/2008/12/we-have-letter-of-acceptance-fantastic.html

The good news is that the IEEE will never sell again its logo to fake conferences like IARIA
This is a success of our blog. We hope IEEE to recover soon, but at the moment this is only the start because many other absolutely Fake Conferences of IEEE will send you their SPAM many times.
It was a good step from IEEE. We have told that the IEEE - IARIA marriage was a disaster for IEEE. For IARIA, it was good for money making, but Science. Can we speak about Science or for paid summer / winter vacation with the famous IARIA "travel agency".

We have found also a good list of IEEE bogus Conferences

After the PROTESTS of our Blog and our emails, the IEEE retracked its Sponsorship to http://irast.org/conferences.html

After the PROTESTS of our Blog and our emails, the IEEE retracked its Sponsorship to

However, IEEE Continues supporting the Bogus Events of www.iaria.org
The IEEE Business continues with pseudo-conferences of IARIA

IEEE sales its name to unreliable conference organizers multiplying the bogus IEEE events. See this. What is IRAST? Why does IEEE sells its name ?

Some anonymous commenter reported us (see http://jeffreybeall.blogspot.com/2010/06/we-found-new-blog-that-also-consider.html ) the following (we agree of course)

Another highly linked site also considers the IEEE EEEIC as an absolute garbage, as an absolutely fake IEEE conference.

We found that the site: www.anti-plagiarism.org maintained by a large committee of well-known academicians discovered before us that IEEE EEEIC is a fake IEEE conference.
See: http://www.anti-plagiarism.org/2010/05/incredible-spam-from-ieee.html
It seems that the fake IEEE conferences, and in general the fake conferences is a really poisson in our academic life.
We received a comment by Prof. Zbigniew Leonowicz
claiming that he has really received IEEE Sponsorhip.
Of course, he has. We do not doubt at all.
But exactly, this is the problem: How can IEEE grant sponsorship or co-sponsorship to a clearly scam conference?
We are absolutely sure that the IEEE sells its name to dubious conference organizers for some thousand dollars.



So the site

http://www.anti-plagiarism.org/2010/05/incredible-spam-from-ieee.html says:






Incredible SPAM and terrific FRAUD from IEEE by Prof. Zbigniew Leonowicz

A new IEEE SPAM message invaded in our PCs today. Enjoy it. If some small conference organizer like Hamid Arabnia or like Nagib Callaos had ever sent this kind of nasty SPAM, the academic community would kill them via the various blogs. But it is not fare to fight the the small conference organizers (Hamid Arabnia, Nagib Callaos etc...) and leave the "big fish" unpunished!
Admire the IEEE Spam now:

Again a new bogus IEEE Conference. What are the Officers of IEEE doing????

How can a "serious" IEEE Conference ask members for the International Program Committee (IPC) by SPAM? You can draw your conclusions. Our conclusion is that this conference as many many other IEEE Conferences are fake conferences that nobody is interested to be in the committee of a conference without any review, but exists only to pocket the money of some innocent or not so innocent scholars that want to pad their CVs
See below the Email of the IEEE Bogus Conference
See the FAKE IEEE Conference and its message below:





"from EEEIC2010 pc@eeeic.eu
reply-to EEEIC2010

(Mailing list information, including unsubscription instructions, is located at the end of this message.)__

Dear Participants, Dear Colleagues

If you are interested in joining the International Program Committee (IPC) for IEEE EEEIC conference, please submit your name, email, areas of specialisation, a brief CV by email to
pc@eeeic.eu or by http://eeeic.eu/contact/.

The program committee is responsible for objectively and thoroughly reviewing all submissions, for submitting timely, informative reviews that provide authors with feedback about their submissions, and for attending the program committee meetings.

The program committee members should be recognized experts in the subject area of the event.Submissions should be reviewed by the program committee members themselves, rather than by their chosen delegates, so that the submissions can be discussed by knowledgeable reviewers during the program committee meeting.

Program committee members can seek expert advice from external reviewers, if they so desire, but they are still responsible for having reviewed the submission themselves.

Conflicts of Interest and Confidentiality of Submissions:

EEEIC requires members of the program committees to adhere to the highest of ethical standards. Program committee chairs must ensure that these standards are not only met to the letter of the policy but also to the spirit of its intent.

This means that even the appearance of a conflict of interest or breach of confidentiality in the selection process should be avoided. Committee members must declare their conflicts to the program chair before any discussions of the submissions begin.

Best regards,

IEEE EEEIC Secretary

The astronomy forum net has discovered another fake conference

The following text is from:
http://www.astronomyforum.net/uk-astronomy-forum/95363-fake-conference-fake-conference-fake-conference-again.html
============================================

This year the academic hackers invaded with their fake papers to the
8th Annual IEEE Conference on Sensors. This conference was without
review and accepted 3-4 fake papers
The IEEE was informed this terrible incident by the organisers
See: IEEE SENSORS 2009 Conference, 25-28 October 2009


So, one more fake conference passed in the history of fake
conferences.
It seems that (mainly from IEEE) a fake conference every 3-4 weeks is
a frequent phainomenon
and maybe the fake papers in a fake conference does not make sense.
The IEEE should take measures against these fake conference
organisers.
fake conferences that scam money out of academics that want to enlarge
their CV artificially with bogus publications in bogus
Yesterday, I received an email apparently from a new blog

I couldn't believe this email (see below) but now after the new fake
IEEE conference (I wonder how many fake conferences of the IEEE we
know now), I absolutely accept this message:




It's that time of year again. Suddenly, your inbox is filled with
letters requesting that you submit a paper to the "The 14th World
Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics: WMSCI
2010" or "WESSEX INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY" or "The International Multi-
Conference on Engineering and Technological Innovation: IMETI 2009",
or the "IEEE Conference on Computational Complexity (that published
many garbage papers last year)

Never heard of any of this because you are a philosopher getting the
emails, too? Don't worry, serious computer scientists don't usually go
to the conferences, although people do easily get impressed by all the
names and submit a paper.

Strangely enough, all papers are accepted, as long as you have paid
your registration fee. You don't actually have to come and give the
paper, although the family will surely love following you to Orlando.
The "Acceptance Policy" is spelled out in pseudo-scientific detail on
the conference site. I paraphrase: We accept everything, because there
might happen to be a good paper in there, and because a reviewer might
plagiarize a paper they reject.

This conference accepted a paper back in 2005 that had been generated
by a computer programmed by some MIT students, SCIgen. A nice blog
discussion of that and the conference is found here. There was quite a
row about this back in 2005, as one must question how scientific a
conference is that accepts random (albeit well-worded) garbage and is
willing to publish it. It is said that more than 1500 papers are
accepted (at $ a pop that isn't chicken feed), and the "majority" are
actually presented. That is not what a real conference is about, where
you meet and discuss with peers working in similar areas.

How many of these thousands of papers ever get cited? That is perhaps
an indication of how good the papers really are. I just searched the
ACM Digital Library. There are 19 (nineteen) citations of the WMSCI
conference. There have been 12 such conferences taken place.

That's not too many, so I went through the references for all 19
papers. Eleven of these papers were written by at least one of the
authors of a WMSCI-published paper, so over half are self-citations.
One paper is Peter G. Neumann's note of the acceptance of the fake
paper in his "Risks to the Public" column in Software Engineering
Notes.

As an aside, there's a fascinating paper on bibliometrics for
discovering low-quality conferences published in 2007: Measuring
conference quality by mining program committee characteristics.

Glancing down the lineup of invited speakers can cause quite some
hilarity: Karl H. Müller, is given at CCCT2008 as being with the
"University of Ljubljana (Austria)". I don't think that Austria has
acutally annexed Slovenia, and a search of their web site turns up Mr.
Müller as having given a talk therea few years back, but he is not
listed as a teacher. He lists himself in his CV on the pages of his
institute as teaching at any number of Austrian schools, but
strangely, they don't list him.

Dr. Subhas C Misra is listed for this conference as being a visiting
Scientist at Harvard, for another conference as being a visiting
scientist at State University of New York. At another conference he is
listed as the "NSERCPDF Scientist, Harvard University", but I find no
mention of this program outside of his CV. Harvard includes CVs of its
visiting scientists on its home page, there is no mention of Misra.

Who are these guys?

It seems that anyone can make up a fancy institute name and make
themselves director, declare themselves teachers at University X (and
may actually have taught there a semester or so before being put out
on their ear), make up papers and fancy conferences and rush around
finding themselves soooo important - but this has nothing to do with
science! They can even pretend to be from some institution. Most are
so large, no one can be sure that they are not actually from that
place.

What can be done to stop this pseudo-science? Or do we just ignore
them, but watch young people and unsuspecting colleagues pour
departmental travel money into attending these conferences to present
their papers? We do get a publication point out of it.....

In this blog, you will find many alerts for junk conferences i.e.
conferences that you must not go. Conferences (like the IEEE
Conference on Computational Complexity or the Conferences of Wessex
Institute of Technology or the Nagib Callaos Conferences) that pollute
our mailbox with much Spam every day.
A very good effort [Registered users can see links. ] gave us the idea
to creat our own blog.
Not to mention of course, the hundred fake conferences of IARIA,
HIGHSCI, IASTED that pollute our academic world with junk or "almost"
junk "conferences.
But, we will have all the academic winter 2009-2010 with many posts
informing you this unacceptable situation where the first teacher was
the IEEE and the IEEE Sponsored Events of IARIA, IIISCI (Nagib
Callaos), WESSEX Institute of Technology and the other fruits of the
academic basket!

Thanks
