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 in each field)


All the WSEAS & NAUN Books and Proceedings until Sept.2009 are in ISI.  Check them on the server of ISI    See also:

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:  , select "The Guide" and then type WSEAS.

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.

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

See this photo album:

Additional features of the conferences :

1) Publication of the Proceedings in 3 media: hard-copy, CD, E-Library

7 books of WSEAS  (see details, contents, author indices and editors below) with ISBN and ISSN indexed by the major Citation Indices (ISI ranked):

(B)  CD-ROM Proceedings with pages' numbers with ISBN and ISSN indexed by the major Citation Indexes:

(C) E-Library:

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:     ).

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: 

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.


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  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. 

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).
