see http://www.dmin-2012.com/special_sessions.htm for details


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the DMIN online paper management system according to the instructions
provided at http://www.dmin-2012/submission (please do not upload your
DMIN draft paper to the general WORLDCOMP system).

Submissions must be uploaded in pdf format by March 12, 2012. 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. A 100 to 400-word abstract should be included on the first 
page  as well. The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers
(if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages including
all figures, tables etc.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness (see 
http://www.dmin-2012.com/review.htm). 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. All proceedings of WORLDCOMP will be 
published and indexed in: Inspec / IET / 
The Institute for Engineering & Technology, DBLP / CS Bibliography, & others.

All conferences will be held simultaneously; ie, same location and dates.

The 2012 Program Committee for DMIN is currently being
compiled. Many who have already joined the committees are renowned leaders,
scholars, researchers, scientists and practitioners of high ranks;
many are directors of research labs., members of National Academy of
Engineering, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of departments,
program directors of research funding agencies, as well as deans and

Program Committee members are expected to have established a strong and
documented research track record. Those interested in joining the Program
Committee and supporting the conference should send program-chair at dmin-2012.com 
(cc to conference-chair at dmin-2012.com) the following information
for consideration/evaluation: Name, affiliation and position, complete
mailing address, email address, and a one-page biography that includes
research expertise. It is expected that a Program Committee member is
willing to support the conference, e.g., by reviewing approximately 
2 to 5 papers.


DMIN is composed of a number of tracks. A track can be a session,
a workshop, or a symposium. A session will have at least 6 papers; a
workshop at least 12 papers; and a symposium at least 18 papers. Track
chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their tracks, including:
soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, ... The names of track chairs
will appear as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and on
the cover of the printed books (and indexed in science databases as such).

Proposals to organize tracks (sessions, workshops, or symposiums) should
include the following information: name and address (+ email) of proposer,
his/her biography, title of track, a 100 to 200-word description of the topic of
the track, and a short description on how the track will be advertised 
(in most cases, track proposers solicit papers from colleagues and 
researchers whose work is known to the track proposer). Please 
send an e-mail of your track proposal to special-session-chair at dmin-2012.com 
(cc to tutorial-chair at dmin-2012.com and conference-chair at dmin-2012.com). 
We would like to receive the track proposals as soon as possible but by 
no later than January 31, 2012.

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 objectives."

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.


Any inquiries regarding WORLDCOMP 2012 should be sent to: editor at world-comp.org
For DMIN, please have a look a the DMIN website http://www.dmin-2012.com or 
contact conference-chair at dmin-2012.com.


As of November 23, 2011, papers published in WORLDCOMP set of proceedings
have received 15,860 citations. In recent months (March to November 2011),
there had been 1,475 citations to WORLDCOMP papers (about 164 citations per
month). The above record is significant (thanks to the authors). As the
result of high impact (based on citations) of WORLDCOMP papers, "Microsoft
Academic Search" has listed each individual track of the congress among its
compiled list of "Top Conferences". The citation record of WORLDCOMP set of
proceedings is in fact higher than the citation data of many reputable
journals in computer science and computer engineering. (The above citation
data does not include citations to WORLDCOMP papers published in 2011; thus,
it is highly probable that the actual number of citations is higher;
citation data was obtained from http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ )

We look forward to receiving your submission of your draft paper.
