" IEEE spam is no different than Viagra spam" and "It is ridiculous and makes me sign of from this ridiculous membership for which they make me pay over $200 a year"

We have received in our blog two comments about IEEE Spam. Needless to say that we agree Report the spams to SpamCop.

Unfortunately, IEEE is not one person, but an organization full of IT individuals, some who show respect to ethical promotion of their activities, some who do not. IEEE as an organization should educate its members on the proper use of email as promotion. I report all spam I get from IEEE to SpamCop.net. IEEE spam is no different than Viagra spam.



I would have to spend entire day everyday just to browse and read all IEEE spam I am getting. It is ridiculous and makes me sign of from this ridiculous membership for which they make me pay over $200 a year.

One more bogus IEEE conference. Fake IEEE event. Junk IEEE meetings!

One more bogus IEEE conference is the following.
Note that they accept Abstracts as well as full papers. They need only 7 days for review. This information along with massive e-mailings (spam) prove that this conference is a fake IEEE conference

--------BOGUS IEEE CONFERENCE CALL FOR PAPERS (our comments in red fonts)----------


 Call For Papers for this bogus IEEE conference
The 4th Int'l Conf. on Computational Intelligence and Software Engineering.

December 14-16, 2012  Wuhan, China
www.ciseng.org/2012/.

Dear

You are cordially invited to submit or recommend (does recommend  mean automatic acceptance without review)an article to the 4th International Conference on Computational Intelligence and Software Engineering (CiSE 2012). The Conference will be held on Dec. 14~16, 2012 in Wuhan, China.
Publication, Presentation and Audience:
The CiSE 2012 conference has been included in IEEE Conference Publication Program, and the proceedings will be published by IEEE and submitted to IEEE Xplore and Ei Compendex databases for indexing. 
IEEE Catalog Number: CFP1226H-CDR
ISBN: 978-1-4577-1566-2

Alternative option: Scientific Research Publishing will publish the conference proceedings, if IEEE rejects the publication of the proceedings. (This is interesting: if your paper is rejected, another publisher will publish it. So, 100% acceptance rate and 0% rejection. Maybe the accepted SCIgen papers will be in a third volume)

If you want to present your research results but do NOT wish to publish a paper, you may simply submit an Abstract to our Paper Submission System (This is scam. Serious conferences cannot accept papers only on Abstract based review)
Simple attendance without publication and presentation is also welcome.
Speakers Candidates: (This is also a scam. They do not have plenary speakers, but possible plenary speakers)
  • Dr. Lingfeng Wang       the University of Toledo (UT), Ohio, USA
  • Dr. Peihua Qiu       the School of Statistics at the University of Minnesota,USA
Paper Submission:
Please submit your papers by our online submission system:
www.ciseng.org/cise2012Submission/index.aspx
Important Dates:
Full paper or abstract submission: Sept. 20, 2012
Acceptance notification: Sept. 27, 2012 (Only 7 days! Because they will not make any review)
Conference: Dec. 14-16, 2012

Sincerely,
Rachel Yang
Assistant of CiSE

Fake IEEE MED conferences

We received the following report for one more site that offers Fake (Bogus/Junk) IEEE Conferences. The report for these fake conferences appeared today in:
http://netdriver.blogspot.com/2011/11/new-frauds-from-ieee-at-india-fake-ieee.html
and is as follows

Fake IEEE MED conferences:
These conferences are organized by the "Mediterranean Control Association"
However, this "Association" is a Company based in USA by a Greek Professor.
We sent them two papers describing the equipment of our laboratory.
We copied the manual of Inverted Pendulum and we got the acceptance letter after
some days. So, for sure include in your fake conferences list the
Fake IEEE MED conferences

Unfortunately, our commentor was right.
We checked it and we found that this "Mediterranean Control Association" is a company registered in United States of America
Check it yourself: http://nd.edu/~pantsakl/MCA
and not in Mediterranean as they claim.
After sending emails to several previous participants, we got a reply:

I have sent them papers twice. They had been accepted without any modification and without any review comments. Our registration fees were sent to the company MCA in USA and not to any non-profit club in some Mediterranean Country. At that time, we did not wonder why. The conference services were poor in both times and most of the sessions were empty or completely cancelled.

However, the beaches and the swimming pools were full of "IEEE MED" delegates.

Maybe, controlists are inspired in their pioneer ideas in the sea or in the swimming pool, especially if they are any (semi-)naked women around.

We have also noticed that they called their conferences as "IEEE Conferences" in the previous years, while they were only technically co-sponsored by IEEE.

This year, 2012, they follow lower profile. So, they do not call their Conference "20th IEEE Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation"
but only "20th Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation".

We have heard that they had serious problems with IEEE Head Quarters, most probably because their conferences had published several junk papers.

New Bogus Conferences

You should put up the whole content of annaworld.000space.com like these guys did:

A fake paper was accepted by Nina Ringo's Vienna conference. See

3 web sites are wounds of fake conferences (they include the name of IEEE with the IEEE permission)



We have discovered that this web site is one more wound of fake conferences

http://world-research-institute.org/conferences.html

People from "world-research-institute" do not have the names of their "Board of Directors" on their web site making so their site more suspicious and bogus. They have spammed us repeatedly. I sent them a junk paper and they told that if I pay they would include it in IEEE Xplore Data Base (known for all of you of the fake SCIgen papers that publishes from time to time) . Unfortunately for them the IEEE Xplore is not an index.
They take advantage of the name of IEEE that they use in their conferences

A similar wound of junk conferences is the site of "promote research"

We asked by email the participants and we found the following common features
of both these wounds of junk publishing
1. Both send us so much spam
2. Both use the name of IEEE
3. Both have no real review
4. It seems that their conferences took place only in their 1st day only. The second and third day, they close the conferences rooms (saving money for the conference rooms' rental and for coffee-breaks, gala dinner) and send their people to excursions. From these excursions their conference organizers have an extra remarkable income.
5. Both these fake institutes do not publish the names of their "Board of Directors" on their web site making so their sites dubious, suspicious and absolutely bogus.
5. They pay their royalties, commission to IEEE normally.
The IEEE headquarters and the Administration of these Bogus Publishers are happy.
How and why IEEE continue selling its name to these academic criminals?
