   SAM'10 Conference is being held jointly (same location and dates)
   with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP).
   WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in
   science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate
   to have 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries
   at WORLDCOMP Congress. A number of individual research tracks of
   the Congress have been held for many years; for example, PDPTA has
   been held annually since 1995 (PDPTA'10 is the 16th annual
   conference); ERSA has been held annually since 2001 (ERSA'10 is the
   10th annual conference); ICAI has been held annually since 1999
   (ICAI'10 is the 12th annual conference); SAM has been held
   annually since 2002 (SAM'10 is the 9th annual conference). Other
   tracks of WORLDCOMP Congress have similar records.

   The motivation behind this federated congress 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
   SAM facilitates communication among researchers from all
   over the world in different fields of computer science,
   computer engineering, applied computing, and computational
   biology. Both inward research (core areas) and outward research
   (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and applications) will
   be covered during the conference. SAM makes concerted effort
   to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
   (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government
   agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world.

   SAM'10 will be composed of research presentations, keynote
   lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions,
   and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel
   speakers have included (as part of the federated event):
   Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer/computer architecture, U. of
   California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as Father of
   Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of
   Genetic Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster (known as
   Father of Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL), Prof. Ruzena
   Bajcsy (pioneer/VR, U. of California, Berkeley), Prof. Barry
   Vercoe (Founding member of MIT Media Lab, MIT), Dr. Jim Gettys
   (known as X-man, developer of X Window System, xhost; OLPC),
   Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic Programming,
   Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program Director, U. of
   Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer, U. of Southern
   California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director and
   Consultant), Prof. Jun Liu (Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.),
   Anousheh Ansari (CEO, Prodea Systems & first female private
   space explorer), and many other distinguished speakers. To get
   a feeling about the events' atmosphere, see the 2009 delegates

   Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by
   uploading them to the evaluation web site at: /
   Submissions must be uploaded by March 1, 2010 and they must
   be in either MS doc (but not docx) or pdf formats (about 5
   to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12). All
   reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the
   authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a
   particular typesetting format to prepare their final papers.)

   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, and
   email address for each author. The first page should also
   identify the name of the Contact Author and a maximum of 5
   topical keywords that would best represent the content of
   the paper. Finally, the name of the conference (ie. SAM)
   must be stated on the first page.

   Full papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
   clarity, impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed
   by two experts in the field who are independent of the
   conference program committee. The referees' evaluations will
   then be reviewed by one member of the program committee who
   will recommend a decision to the chair of the track that
   the paper has been submitted to. The chair will make the
   final decision. Lastly, the final papers will be reviewed
   by one member of the program committee.

   All accepted papers will be published in the respective
   conference proceedings (in both, printed book form as well as
   online). The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec / IET /
   The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP / Computer
   Science Bibliography, and others.) The printed proceedings
   will be available for distribution on site at the conference.

   In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected
   authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their
   papers for publication in a number of research books being
   proposed/contracted with various publishers (such as, Springer,
   Elsevier, IOS, ...) - these books would be composed after the
   conference. Also, many chairs of sessions and workshops will
   be forming journal special issues to be published after the


   Each session will have at least 6 paper presentations from
   different authors (12 papers in the case of workshops). 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 sessions should include the following
   information: name and address (+ email) of proposer, his/her
   biography, title of session, a 100-word description of the
   topic of the session, the name of the conference the session
   is submitted for consideration (ie, SAM), 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).
   email your session proposal to H. R. Arabnia ( ).
   We would like to receive the session proposals by January 16, 2010.


   Jan. 16, 2010:    Proposals for organizing sessions/workshops

   July 12-15, 2010: The 2010 International Conference on
                     Security and Management (SAM'10)


   The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World
   Academy of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific
   computing; AI; imaging science; databases; simulation;
   software eng.; embedded systems; internet & web technologies;
   communications; computer security; & bioinformatics.) The
   Program Committee for SAM'10 conference is currently
   being formed. Many who have already joined the committees
   of individual tracks are renowned leaders, scholars,
   researchers, scientists and practitioners of the highest
   ranks; many are directors of research labs., fellows of
   various societies, heads/chairs of departments, program
   directors of research funding agencies, deans and provosts.
   You can view the list of program committee of the last two
   offerings of SAM at:
   Program Committee members are expected to have established
   a strong and documented research track record. Those
   interested in joining the Program Committee should email
   H. R. Arabnia ( the following information for
   consideration/evaluation: Name, affiliation and position,
   complete mailing address, email address, a one-page biography
   that includes research expertise and the name of the conference
   offering to help with (ie, SAM).


   SAM'10 will be held at Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas,
   Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels).
   This is a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and
   over 3,000 rooms. It 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,
   sunning decks, Easy River, wave pool, nightly shows, many
   restaurants, ... The hotel is adjacent to CityCenter
   ( ) which is the
   largest private development in the United States' history
   (costing over $11 Billion); this offers access to additional
   recreational and entertainment attractions. The negotiated
   room rate for conference attendees is very reasonable.
