  1. I have read this comment:

    YES many IEEE conferences are absolutely garbage, because the IEEE grant its name for a handful of dollars to unconscious organizers.
    The internet is full of denunciations against the stupid conferences that gather many dupes just because their chairmen reserved the name and the logo of IEEE.
    So, conferences of IEEE are a total garbage just search over google

    I have a similar adventure with an IEEE Conference in Italy this year.
    I sent them 3 papers and they were accepted without any kind of Review!!!!

  2. In our blog: http://sisfaculty.blogspot.com/2009/03/bogus-conferences.html

    we found this information and we agree

    Amazing:

    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

  3. Dear All,
    Several colleagues have complained that the organizers of IEEE conferences are placed their names without their permits in the some conferences as Chair-Committee or INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE. The organizer borrows (without permit) the reputation of the international scholars to attract some others to attend the meeting. IEEE conferences charge a relative high registration fees and they always persuade others to publish in their zero-impact journals with cost fees. It appears that the main purpose of the IEEE organizers is to profit rather than promoting sciences. They are business men and women take advantage of scientific activities to earn money. We should regard their emails as Junk or Spam!
