The DBLP list of accepted papers of SAM 2010 appears at:
The main web site of SAM'11 can be found at:


This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to
submit their papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers".
authors who have already submitted papers in response to earlier "Call
For Papers" should IGNORE this announcement.

Authors who submit papers in response to this announcement, will have
their papers evaluated for publication consideration in the Final
Edition of the conference proceedings which will go to press in late
August 2011 (the conference would then make the necessary arrangements
to ship the printed proceedings/book to such authors). The Final
Edition of the conference proceedings will be identical to earlier
edition except for a number of sections/chapters appended to the
proceedings/book. The Final Edition will be indexed by Inspec / IET /
The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP / CS Bibliography,
and others (in the past, all tracks of the federated congress,
WORLDCOMP, in which SAM is part of, have also been included in EI
Compendex/Elsevier.) The proceedings will be published in both,
book/ISBN form as well as online.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
them to the evaluation web site at:
Submissions must be uploaded by May 23, 2011 and they must be in
MS doc (but not docx) or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - single
font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable typesetting formats are
(later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a
particular typesetting format to prepare their final papers for
publication.) Papers must not have been previously published or
currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of the
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) should be mentioned.

The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be
limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases
of contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program
committee will be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject);
often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees by
using a double-blinded review process. In addition, all papers whose
authors included a member of the conference program committee will be
evaluated using the double-blinded review process. (Essay/
papers will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/

SAM 2011 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 computer science,
computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have
2,100 or more attendees from over 85 countries.

WORLDCOMP 2011 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: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer/
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.),
Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi
(Head, NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate
Director, Project Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab,
CalTech/NASA), and many other distinguished speakers. To get a
feeling about the conferences' atmosphere, see the 2010 delegates

An important mission of WORLDCOMP is "Providing a unique
platform for a diverse community of constituents composed of
scholars, researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners.
The Congress 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. The congress also attempts
to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions
that have research as their main mission. The congress uses a
quota system to achieve its institution and geography diversity

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of
affiliated research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into
a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a
common time. This model facilitates communication among
researchers in different fields of computer science, computer
engineering, and applied computing. The Congress also encourages
multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research initiatives;
ie, facilitating increased opportunities for cross-fertilization
across sub-disciplines.

According to "Microsoft Academic Search" (a Microsoft initiative)
all tracks of WORLDCOMP are listed as worldwide "Top-ranked
Conferences" (based on various metrics but mainly based on the
number of citations). You can access "Microsoft Academic Search" to
extract citation data for each individual track of worldcomp using
the following link:
As of March 4, 2011, the papers published in the proceedings have
received 14,385 citations which is a higher citation than many
reputable journals in computer science.
