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
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:
Please forward to those who may be interested. Thanks.
