How can someone trust IEEE?

A paper recently published in Springer Verlag demonstrates the problem of fake IEEE conferences and fake IEEE papers: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11192-012-0781-y
Some respectable French Professors simply run a program tracking fake SCIgen papers and they discovered more than 85 SCIgen papers in IEEE. Download the full text from here: http://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/docs/00/71/35/55/PDF/0-FakeDetectionSci-Perso.pdf
We conclude that Der Schlangemann affair (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_Schlangemann)
is the rule and not the excemption in IEEE.
Moreover IEEE was obliged to delete 157 conferences with low quality, low-grade and more or less fake papers: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/author_form.html
Therefore, as Marcelo Toledo says in http://marcelotoledo.com/2008/12/26/how-can-someone-trust-ieee/
How can someone trust IEEE?

P.S. Web Site on a server of the University of Minnesota (USA) also underlines the problem of IEEE Fake Conferences:  http://blog.lib.umn.edu/denis036/thisweekinevolution/2011/07/would_ieee_really_sponsor_a_fa.html


  1. Nagib Callaos did not give up the sport of FAKE CONFERENCES. Nagib Callaos is an addle-brained guy.
    He is addicted in FAKE CONFERENCES. Nagib Callaos is really a professional scammer and the personalization of fake conferences. Nagib Callaos is organizing again bogus conferences in summer of 2014. In his spam, he calls them: Conferences - Summer 2014. Why don't he call them:
    Bogus (Fake) Conferences - Summer 2014?
    Historically Nagib Callaos was the first that sent letter of acceptance in a SCIgen garbage-paper. Nagib Callaos Fake Conferences had the logo and name of IEEE at that time. IEEE stopped granting its name and its logo to Nagib Callaos. At the same time IEEE granted his name in another "flower" of fake conferences: Petre Dini and his fake - bogus organization IARIA, until Petre Dini (owener of the scholarly scam company IARIA) accepted a paper "A Statistical Method of Women that Can help our sexual Education" This full of sexual positions "academic paper" exists until now in the site: http://iaria-highsci.blogspot.com

    Imagine what: The organizers gave letter of acceptance without opening the PDF file of the paper. All these funny stories ruin the reputation of IEEE.

    Recently I saw in some blog that an IEEE fellow is inviting people in his conference
    even if they are rejected from other conferences.

    This is: http://fakeconferences.blogspot.com/2013/10/do-ieee-fellows-organize-fake.html

  2. This is the direct link of the IEEE-Fellow-Member conference http://internetconferences.net/ipsi/weacceptr.php
    Avoid it.
    Many people would agree that IEEE must withdraw the Honorary Diploma of this guy (Milutinovic) .....

  3. Most of the IEEE and SIAM Conferences are fake...
    IEEE and SIAM conferences' organizers sell the name of IEEE and SIAM for some dollars....

  4. Today I received this spam from IEEE

    Dear Colleague,

    I am happy to inform you that I have been elected as 2014 IEEE Vice-President-Elect for Technical Activities, who will become IEEE Vice-President for Technical Activities in 2015.

    I would like to thank all those who supported me in the petition and in the election: thank you!

    I look forward to serving our whole community and contributing to it in this new capacity. All together we can make the difference!

    If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to drop me a note. I welcome and value input from all of you.
