We received this by email:
The higher 30% of our Participants will receive a gold certificate, the
40% will receive silver certificate and the other (lower) 30% bronze certificate,
but because you are a prominent scientist, you will receive your gold certificate.
See the web pages of this stupid conference
The funny story with the 30-40-30 % gold-silver-bronze certificates can be found on the link:
You can draw your own conclusion
Please, send us the 5000 Signatures of SCIENTISTS that protested for SCAM IEEE and NAZI Methods in IEEE
Upload this list here as a comment or in any other slot of out blog
We need to learn the 5000 thousand Scholars that made this protest in 2004
The person that collected all these Signatures, Prof. GEVERS is now an ... IEEE FELLOW.
With this method, IEEE ...purchased Prof. GEVERS
The 2006 IEEE Workshop on Body Sensor Networks
MIT Media Lab and MIT Wang Auditorium, Cambridge MA -USA-
3-5 April, 2006
Paper Submission deadline: 25 Nov 2005 (deadline extended)
Notification of acceptance: 15 Dec 2005
Camera ready copy due: 20 Jan 2006
(4 pages in IEEE Computer Society format - see above website)
The last decade has witnessed a rapid surge of interest in new sensing and monitoring devices for healthcare and the use of wearable/wireless devices and sensor networks for clinical applications. One key development in this area is implantable in vivo monitoring and intervention devices. While the problems of long-term stability and biocompatibility are being addressed, several promising prototypes are starting to emerge for managing patients with acute diabetes, for treatment of epilepsy and other debilitating neurological disorders and for monitoring of patients with chronic cardiac diseases. Despite the technological developments in sensing and monitoring devices, issues related to system integration, sensor miniaturization, low-power sensor interface circuitry design, wireless telemetric links and signal processing have still to be investigated. Moreover, issues related to quality of service, security, multi-sensor data fusion, and decision support are active research topics needed for deploying body sensor networks.
The aim of the workshop is to address general issues related to using wearable/wireless and implantable sensors and to bring together scientists from computing, electronics, bioengineering, medicine and industry in order to discuss the latest technological developments and clinical applications of body-sensor networks.
Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the following topics:
• Novel bioelectrical, biochemical, biophysical, and mechanical sensors
• Hardware considerations for body sensor networks, including:
Low power RF transceivers, energy scavenging, battery technology, miniaturisation,
system integration, process and cost of manufacturing
• Biocompatibility and materials
• Context awareness and multi-sensor data fusion for body sensor networks
• Quality of service and security issues for body sensor networks
• Standards and light-weight communication protocols for body sensor networks
• Links from the body to environment sensing, smart dwellings, and home monitoring
• Wearable and implantable (or swallowable, etc.) sensor integration and development platforms
• Wearable biomotion sensors to monitor human activity for diagnosis, therapy, training, sports, etc.
• Applications of body-sensor networks

RACISM of IEEE
Some years ago a Professor Michel GEVERS , Prof. of Automatic Control in the Universite Catholique de Louvain, published a series of articles on the Web about
* Racism of IEEE
* Various Financial Frauds of IEEE OfficersMichel Gevers was born in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1945. He obtained an Electrical Engineering degree from the Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium, in 1968, and a Ph.D. degree from Stanford University, California, in 1972. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, a Distinguished Member of the IEEE Control Systems Society, and he holds a Honorary Degree (Doctor Honoris Causa) from the University of Brussels. He has been President of the European Union Control Association (EUCA) from 1997 to 1999, and Vice President of the IEEE Control Systems Society in 2000 and 2001. In 2004, he initiated a petition against the IEEE Racism gathering more than 5000 signatures. After being IEEE Felow he removed these Web Pages. If somebody have them, please, upload them as comments at this post.
However, after his promotion to IEEE Fellowship Rank, he removed these web pages
Later, some of his collaborators opened the web page:
where they said: Do you really believe that you can publish your work in IEEE with the same terms as other scholars?
In this web page: http://www.anti-plagiarism.org/ieee-racism.htm
they claimed : "This web page is the result of a full research in
the Universite Catholique de Louvain (Belgium).
It had been published by the laboratory of Prof. Gevers
who was ... IEEE Fellow!!!
After several protests and threats from IEEE, the Universite Catholique de Louvain
removed these pages"
This is a lie.
The real explanation was that IEEE "upgraded" Prof. Gevers to IEEE Fellow grade,
closing the mouth of Gevers.
Some professor from this University sent the relevant material to:
If you have these web pages, please, upload them below as comments,
because we cannot find them
I found this article in http://scamieee.netfirms.com
and I think that it would be useful.
SCAM IEEEThis is a new site uploaded by a team of
university researchers and professorsthat have serious complaints against IEEE
and many arguments against its legal status. So, we have created this forum to fight the making-profit policy of
IEEE. We declare that we will stop all of our efforts, if IEEE cease to be a profit-making company and if the IEEE President Michael Adler stop to be an unethical person. We want an IEEE real non-for-profit academic organization.
However, currently IEEE is really a scam.
We want to correct this "SCAM IEEE" and we want to improve the recent
bad reputation of this big organization
We invite you to send us your opinion of how to proceed.
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will reply you shortly
This web page is a FORUM for the IEEE reputation or better for the IEEE SCAM.
We cannot accept the way that we are treated in IEEE Conferences. Rude Presidents,
Unpolite Ph.D. students that help their Supervisor - Chairman of the Conference.
This is ridiculus. We must improve this situation and for this reason we want your opinion.
We will host all the views here. Please, email us email@example.com

Hello, Michael Adler. If each IEEE Conference gathers more than 1200 registrations, with an average of 600 $, we have 720000 $.
In what pocket all this money goes
Other Societies like SIAM, ACM etc... does not have this behaviour.
We try to have a discount in your conference, but we failed.
“This has created just tremendous bad will toward the IEEE,” said Kenneth Foster,
a University of Pennsylvania professor of bioengineering and an IEEE fellow
The petition's administrator, professor Michael Gevers of Universite
Catholique du Louvain in Belgium, said that the one fifth of the petition's
backers who attached a note sent “extremely angry comments… Many of them say,
'If that continues, I will not renew my membership,'” he told The Scientist.
About 1000 of the signatories are from the United States, Gevers said.
"Only if you put in your paper the name of a well-known Professor in USA, member of IEEE, you can have a full paper in IEEE" professors use to say. "This is because IEEE is an AMERICAN Company. We must make it clear." If you doubt, you can see the following interesting links: http://onlineethics.org/essays/discharge/unghot.html#assault
WHO WE ARE:
Group of Scientists against the SCAM IEEE
Team of Researchers that wish to improve the Bad Reputation of the IEEE
Healthy minds that hate the ridiculus scam of IEEE
