      FCS'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); FCS has been held
      annually since 2005 (FCS'10 is the 6th 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
      FCS 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. FCS 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.

      FCS'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. FCS)
      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, FCS), 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.

      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 FCS'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.

      offerings of FCS 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, FCS).


      FCS'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.
