  Wilmington, Delaware, USA 19801

PURPOSE / HISTORY:

  FECS'06 is an international conference held simultaneously
  (ie, same location and dates) with a number of other
  joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'06 (The 2006 World
  Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and
  Applied Computing).  WORLDCOMP'06 is the largest annual
  gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
  engineering and applied computing.  Each of the joint
  conferences in WORLDCOMP is the premier conference for
  presentation of advances in their respective fields.
  WORLDCOMP'06 is composed of the following international
  conferences: Parallel & Distributed Processing Techniques &
  Applications; Scientific Computing; Grid Computing &
  Applications; Security & Management; Artificial Intelligence;
  Machine Learning; Software Engineering Research & Practice;
  Programming Languages & Compilers; Internet Computing; Semantic
  Web & Web Services; Computer Design; Real-Time Computing
  Systems & Applications; Embedded Systems & Applications; Wireless
  Networks; Pervasive Systems & Computing; Image Processing,
  Computer Vision, & Pattern Recognition; Computer Graphics &
  Virtual Reality; Modeling, Simulation & Visualization Methods;
  Computer Games Development; Frontiers in Education in Computer
  Science & Engineering; Foundations of Computer Science;
  e-Learning, e-Business, Enterprise Information Systems,
  e-Government, & Outsourcing; Data Mining; Information &
  Knowledge Engineering; Bioinformatics & Computational Biology;
  Computing in Nanotechnology; Engineering of Reconfigurable
  Systems & Algorithms; Communications in Computing.

  The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
  research conferences into a coordinated research meeting
  held in a common place at a common time.  The main goal
  is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number
  of research areas that interact.  The model used to form
  these annual conferences facilitates communication among
  researchers in different fields of computer science,
  computer engineering and applied computing.  Both inward
  research (core areas of computer science and engineering)
  and outward research (multi-disciplinary, Inter-disciplinary,
  and applications) will be covered during the conferences.

PROPOSAL FOR ORGANIZING TECHNICAL SESSIONS:

  Each technical session will have at least 6 paper
  presentations (from different authors).  The session
  chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their
  sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing,
  selecting, ...  The names of session chairs will appear
  as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and
  on the cover of the books.

  Proposals to organize technical sessions should include
  the following information: name and address (+ E-mail)
  of proposer, title of session, a 100-word description of
  the topic of the session, the name of the conference the
  session is submitted for consideration, and a short
  description on how the session will be advertised (in
  most cases, session proposers solicit papers from
  colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the
  session proposer).  Mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia
  (address is given above); E-mail submissions are preferred.
  We would like to receive the proposals by December 29, 2005.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

  Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft
  paper (about 5 to 8 pages - single space, font size of 10
  to 12) to H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 20, 2006. E-mail submissions
  in MS document or PDF formats are preferable (Fax or postal
  submissions are also fine.)  All reasonable typesetting
  formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted
  papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting
  format to prepare their papers for publication.)

  The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will
  be limited to 7 (IEEE style) pages.  Papers must not have
  been previously published or currently submitted for
  publication elsewhere.  The first page of the draft paper
  should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation,
  postal address, E-mail address, telephone number, &
  Fax number for each author.  The first page should also
  include the name of the author who will be presenting
  the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords.
  Also, the name of the conference that the paper is being
  submitted to must be mentioned on the first page.

  Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
  clarity, and soundness.  Each paper will be refereed by
  two researchers in the topical area.  The Camera-Ready
  papers will be reviewed by one person.

MEMBERS OF PROGRAM & ORGANIZING COMMITTEES:

  The Program Committee includes members of chapters
  of World Academy of Science (chapters: supercomputing;
  scientific computing; artificial intelligence; imaging
  science; databases; simulation; software engineering;
  embedded systems; internet and web technologies;
  communications; computer security; and bioinformatics.)
  The Program Committee for individual conferences is
  currently being formed.  Those interested in joining
  the Program Committee should email H. R. Arabnia
  (hra@cs.uga.edu ) the following information:
  Name, affiliation and position, complete mailing address,
  email address, tel/fax numbers, a short biography
  together with research interests and the name of the
  conference offering to help with.

LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

  The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort
  hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other
  near-by hotels).  The Monte Carlo Resort is a mega hotel
  with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms.
  The hotel is minutes from the airport with 24-hour
  shuttle service to and from the airport.  This hotel has
  many recreational attractions, including: waterfalls,
  spa, pools & kiddie pools, sunning decks, Easy River
  water ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis
  courts, health spa (with workout equipment, whirlpool,
  sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality game rooms, nightly
  shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping area,
  bars, ...  Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a
  day & most are suitable for families & children.  The
  negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very
  reasonable.  The hotel is within walking distance from
  most other attractions (major shopping areas, recreational
  destinations, fine dining & night clubs, free street
  shows, ...).
