TO: CPS Clients FROM: Evan Butterfield, Director of Products and Services RE: Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions (CONFIDENTIAL) DATE: 16 January 2009

The IEEE Computer Society (CS) has evidence that multiple 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.
