LOW QUALITY CONFERENCES USE THE NAME AND THE LOGO OF IEEE


from the blog http://low-quality-conferences.blogspot.com/


One more junk conference with "all-papers-accepted" policy uses the name of IEEE.


The Bogus Conferences with the name of IEEE is not a new fashion in our academic community. Every conference organizer (even non qualified) can pay some commission to IEEE (5% or 10% from the registration fees) and automatically receive the rights to use the name and the logo of IEEE.
Unlike other serious organizations, IEEE is a commercial house and the authorities of IEEE should be punished from us.
Yours Sincerely

  1. Hi, I found another bogus and fake conference.
    Could you provide some info regarding this conference (International Conference on Information Technology & Management Issues (ICITMI) (http://www.seaofsci.com/index.html).

    According to their website the conference is being organized by Computer Scientists and Management Professionals (CSMPs) but they have no track record.

    The affiliated institutions shown by the committee members seem to be a misleading as they are not listed on the websites of their claimed institutions.

    Thus I think this conference is to make money. It would be better to spread the words to save the young researchers and student from getting into trouble by sending their precious work in this conference.

    ****************
    The following are among the areas of the EISTA 2012:
    ****************
    • eLearning
    • Education and Training Systems and Technologies
    • Education of Science and Engineering
    • Education of Informatics and Communication Technologies
    • Applications of Information and Communication Technologies in Education and Training
    • Internet-Based Teaching and learning
    • Virtual Classrooms and Virtual Universities
    • Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
    • Effective Use and Assessment of Technology as a Teaching Tool in Science, Engineering, Mathematics, and Technology Education (STEM Education)
    • Educational Research, Theories, Practice and Methodologies
    ****************

    Submissions for *Face-to-Face* or for *Virtual* Participation are both accepted. Both kinds of submissions will have the same reviewing process and the accepted papers will be included in the same proceedings.

    With the purpose of fostering *Inter-disciplinary Communications* participants registered at any conference or symposia can attend sessions of any session of any of the collocated events. Registered participants will also receive a CD containing the proceedings of all collocated events, and will have a password to access any virtual session of the collocated events, so they can comment any paper presented at any of the collocated events.

    Pre-Conference and Post-conference Virtual sessions (via electronic forums) will be held for each session included in the conference program, so that sessions papers can be read before the conference, and authors presenting at the same session can interact during one week before and after the conference. Authors can also participate in peer-to-peer reviewing in virtual sessions.

    Authors of accepted papers who registered in the conference can have access to the evaluations and possible feedback provided by the reviewers who recommended the acceptance of their papers/abstracts, so they can accordingly improve the final version of their papers. Non-registered authors will not have access to the reviews of their respective submissions.

    Authors of the best 10%-20% of the papers presented at the conference (included those virtually presented) will be invited to adapt their papers for their publication in the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics.

    Registration fees of an effective invited session organizer will be waived according to the policy described in the web page (click on 'Invited Session', then on 'Benefits for the Organizers of Invited Sessions'), where you can get information about the ten benefits for an invited session organizer. For Invited Sessions Proposals, please visit the conference web site, or directly to http://www.2012iiisconferences.org/eista/organizer.asp

    More detailed information regarding reviewing multi-methodology, acceptance policy, sessions' best papers awards, virtual sessions, virtual participation, journal publications, etc. can be found at the conference web site and at the URL provided above.

    Best regards,

    EISTA 2012 Organizing Committee

  5. I have worked in North Cyprus for nearly 20 years, and I am so fed up of professors with fake qualifications. My university has dismissed up to 10, sometimes straight away, sometimes after a semester. Sometimes these are Turkish professors who have left their diplomas on a bus, but also many are Americans who inflate their certificates with each new position.

    Now, with the Northern Cyprus allowing PhD holders exemption from the military, they will being to churn out inferior doctorates, not worth the paper they are written on.

    Unfortunately, the way that the promotion system works in most Turkish universities is that the staff have to collect points, from journal publications and conference attendance, towards their promotion through the ranks from Assistant Professor, Associate Professor (Docent) to full professor. Some universities will not award the PhD until the author has a science citation publication.

    I have only just found out that even Science Citation Index publications can be dodgy, and charge 500 dollars to put your paper in!

    Uff, what can be done.
    Thanks to Turnitin I was able to show my boss that one Masters student was trying to pass off a thesis that was 85% plagiarised as her own work.

    I am so vigilant, but most teachers here don't care. It is common to cope all homework as well as in exams.
