The most important is that all the publications are now in ISI and this SAYS MANY THINGS for those they know  what we mean ISI Publication in our CVs

Over than 150 delegates attended these WSEAS conferences ECC '09, CI '09, F-and-B '09,   this year
 

An Internal Meeting of the Committee to arrange the last details took place in the University one day before the opening of the meeting

The final program and the Review of the papers was made by the collaborating Iv.Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, Tbilisi, Georgia,



 

 All the WSEAS Books are in ISI / SCI (Web of Science). Download them now from the site of ISI . (Click on the link: List of Conferences 2004-2008 and download them in an EXCEL file from the site of ISI).  As you can see from the site of ISI the criteria for including Books and Proceedings in ISI are very strict and most of the conferences of older societies are not in the ISI Index while all the WSEAS books and proceedings are inside ISI / SCI (Web of Science). Check it on the site of ISI please, now. Letter of March 10, 2009 or old letters in http://www.wseas.us/indexes.

NEW: The 4 most recent WSEAS journals (WSEAS Trans. on Biology and Biomedicine, WSEAS Trans. om Fluid Mechanics, WSEAS Trans. on Heat and Mass Transfer, WSEAS Trans. on Business and Economics) have been accepted in SCOPUS and so all the WSEAS Journals are now in SCOPUS. All the WSEAS Books, Proceedings and JOURNALS are also indexed in ACM. Click here: http://portal.acm.org , select "The Guide" and then type WSEAS. See the complete indexing of WSEAS Books, Proceedings, Journals in ACM, ASM, ELSEVIER other 30 indexes at: http://www.wseas.us/indexes
NEW Letters from
British Library, American Chemical Society, SWETS, see more:  http://www.wseas.us/indexes

Dear Professor Mastorakis,

You deserve compliments and congratulations on your making WSEAS an important international forum for exchange of
information and ideas.

    With cordial regards.

       Sincerely,

From: "Lotfi A. Zadeh" <zadeh@eecs.berkeley.edu>



Dear Prof. Mastorakis

I would like to express my deep appreciation to you and WSEAS people
who sent me messages or called to express their sympathy.
It was, in all, a difficult experience but there are many others
whose experiences were much more difficult than mine.

Just a quick note to let you know that after spending some time at a
rehabilitation center and recuperating at home, I returned to work on Monday, February 23, 2009.
So far, so good.


Warm regards to all,

Sincerely,

Lotfi

The International Scientific Committee met during the Conference three times in a restaurant well known for the standards of its cuisine and its friendly atmosphere.  Ways to improve the Conference were discussed over dinner: in particular the topics were revised and new ones suggested, as well as a few nominations for new members to the committee being proposed.  Following the meeting, the decision was taken to reconvene the Conference, and a few locations were suggested.  The WSEAS Conference Division will investigate these so that the dates and location of 2010 can be finalized as soon as possible.



 

Best Papers:
The Best Paper award honors the author(s) of a paper of exceptional merit dealing with a subject related to the Conference's technical scope, see the photos above and the list of the awardees here...)
(The papers evaluated by committees of 6 international experts, different for each discipline)

WSEAS provided a very important tool to all the participants
A permanent username and password for accessing WSEAS conference proceedings on-line for ever.


BANQUET:

The banquet took place in a local taverna in the second day of the conferences.

Additional features of the conferences :

1) Publication of the Proceedings in 3 media: hard-copy, CD, E-Library
(A)
Five books in the "Electrical and Computer Engineering Series" of WSEAS  (see details, contents, author indices and editors below) with ISBN and ISSN indexed by the major Citation Indices (ISI ranked): www.wseas.us/indexes

(B)  CD-ROM Proceedings with pages' numbers with ISBN and ISSN indexed by the major Citation Indexes: www.wseas.us/indexes

(C) E-Library: http://www.wseas.org/online

and possible, for a very small number of papers:

(D) JOURNAL PUBLICATION: Expanded and enhanced versions of papers published in the conference proceedings also going to be considered for possible publication in one of the WSEAS journals that participate in the major International Scientific Indices (Elsevier, Scopus, EI, Compendex, INSPEC, CSA .... see: www.wseas.us/indexes     ).

2)
WSEAS provides a very important tool to all the participants; a permanent username and password for accessing WSEAS conference proceedings on-line for ever.

3) The Participants received numerous coffee-breaks, and a Welcome Drink

4) Cultural and social activities as customary in WSEAS events.

5) The conference Books (Hard-Copy Proceedings), CD-ROM proceedings and Journals (with selected papers) published by WSEAS Press continue to sell for a long time after the meeting has taken place. This is another demonstration of the prestige the scientific community attribute to the meetings organized by the WSEAS.
For example, they are distributed via AMAZON: 
WSEAS @ AMAZON.COM  

JOURNALS:
What is the Permanent Procedure for additional Journal publication for a very small number of High-Quality Papers presented in the WSEAS Conferences (after the recommendation of Chairmen). So, the authors with accepted & presented papers received the following e-mail:


We have started now the procedure for the evaluation of the extended versions of your papers for possible inclusion in the WSEAS journals after new rounds of review.

INTRODUCTION: You know that our goal is to maintain very strong international journals, to increase the impact of our beloved WSEAS Transactions, really top journals as they really are. To this end, we need only high quality papers, breakthrough works of archival value, i.e. papers that are well written from any point of view, completed studies (with their numerical examples or experiments that must be compared with the previous results in the literature), excellent English language and of course correct WSEAS format. The papers also must be substantially extended version of the paper that was presented in the conference (with more than 40% new material). We need papers that will attract the attention of other scholars citing them increasing our impact. In the next few years, the WSEAS transactions must be in every academic library, in every corner of the earth. To this end, we need your high quality contribution.

HOW TO PROCEED:

a) Check very carefully if your idea is really important, breakthrough in your field and can appear in a Journal of the quality and the level of the WSEAS Transactions. If you doubt, do not send it so easily. Your paper must not be only a good idea. It must be a complete study with theoretical background, complete bibliographical references; without grammatical and syntactical errors. For theoretical works: full comparison with previous published papers is necessary. We need numerical examples, applicability of the method, originality, novelty and directions for future research. For experimental or computational works: full comparison with previous published papers is necessary. We need real experiments with the necessary documentation, while for computational work, we need full benchmarks. Of course along discussions for the applicability of the method, originality, novelty and directions for future research.
 
b) Complete the extended version of your paper and upload it via
http://...............  (the full web address was given only to authors who presented a paper)

c) If your extended version fulfills the paragraph a), then our Editors will send it to 3 independent Reviewers outside your country. If not, our Editors are entitled to reject it from this early stage informing you properly. The positive answer of the 3 reviewers is necessary (attention: 2 yes and 1 no implies NO, i.e. rejection).

d) Our Editors will collect the reviewers' remarks and will send them again to you for acceptance/ acceptance after minor revision / acceptance after major revision / rejection

e) Possibly new rounds of review will be needed.

f) No additional fee is needed in case of acceptance.


http://www.worldses.org/journals/index.html 

The final list of the papers must have the approval of our Editors and 3 Reviewers, and of course the Editor-in-Chief of the particular Journal.

We want only authors that presented their papers to complete this web form:
http://...............   (the full web address was given only to authors who presented a paper) So, in this form you will need a password (the password was given only to the authors who presented a paper).
