MECHANICAL ENGINEERING with millions of Spam Email

They have accepted Abstracts of 5 SCIgen (automatically generated) Papers. Protect hapless victims from this Scam. They are academic criminals. If you have sent papers to ASME, make lawsuit against them for this ridiculous conduct. Fake conferences, Bogus conferences with junk papers is a poison in our academic community. Avoid any relation with ASME bogus conferences.
Their logo propagandize: ASME Setting the Standard (sic). It would be better to say: ASME etting the standard for the absolute garbage, crappy, mock conferences.

IEEE Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation conference is mock and bogus,

From the Blog

IEEE Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation conference is mock and bogus, because
a) In their web page they invite you as follows. 

Minoa Palace Resort & Spa
Platanias-Chania, Crete - GREECE
MED'13 will be held at the Minoa Palace Resort and Spa (, a luxury five star beachside resort. The resort is situated in the cosmopolitan area of Platanias, 12km west of the picturesque town of Chania and about 30 min drive from the Chania International Airport. The resort offers majestic views of its surrounding countryside and the White Mountains. To the north, the resort enjoys panoramic views of the endless golden beach of Platanias with the shimmering sapphire blue Aegean beyond. Guests have immediate access to the sandy beach in front of the resort. For information about Chania, visit: and for Greece, visit:
A video of the hotel and resort accommodations is available here.
To run a conference in a Resort & Spa does not necessarily means that the conference is Bogus, but this feature in combination with b), c), d) and e) - see below-- implies that the conference is bogus and mock.

b) The "Society" that organizes this event is the so called MEDITERRANEAN CONTROL ASSOCIATION. It is very strange that this "Association" is only one Person (actually the owner) Prof. Panos Antsaklis with academic address: University of Notre Dame, USA. So, what kind of "Mediterranean" Association is this association having the headquarters in a room in USA and what kind of Association is this having Prof. Antsaklis (always the same person) as President (in fact he is the Owner) in the recent 21 years?
***We tried (Google) to find other members of this kind of "Association" but we did not find anyone else. Only Antsaklis!

c) It is also very strange that a conference in Greece collects the registration fees in USA. Note that in their web page the Registration Chairman is some Hai Lin, Assistant Professor in the University of Notre Dame just under Panos Agathoklis. How can a conference in Greece of  "Mediterranean" area collect the registration fees in USA?

d) It is also very strange that in the web page of the conference there is no mention for Registration and Registration Fees. So, they do not clear their financial requirements from the beginning, but you will learn about the registration cost at the end when a possible retraction of your paper will be impossible.

e) After sending email to 5 members of the International Program Committee, we got the same answer: The IPC members are not aware about ... the conference.

Conclusion: Evaluating a), b), c), d), e) we draw the conclusion that this is a bogus IEEE conference with a fake organization harming the name and the reputation of IEEE.

A new bogus IEEE conference

Our blog received a comment from some Prof Lee
The comment of Prof. Lee is as follows

This conference of IEEE is bogus:
I sent them a stupid article (about football games of my children that can be organized ... in Data Bases) and they sent me a letter of acceptance after 15 days. I assume that they have accepted everything. Why doesn't IEEE check its collaborators? How IEEE can be sponsor in this fake conference? Please, forward this information for the junk IEEE conference to your mailing lists
