About Indexing of these WSEAS Conferences, About Books and Journals after the Conferences and a Message from Professor Zadeh, Y. Shmaliy and D. Kazakos for WSEAS Members


  After the conferences in VENEZUELA,  
   we received    
  questions from 2 
  frequent WSEAS 
  authors about our 
  Books and 
  Proceedings in ISI. 

  We would like to 
  inform all the WSEAS
  authors about the 

1. The ISI updates its data base 
every July and every January. The last time that it was updated was July 2010.
As we were informed, they added all the WSEAS Conferences until February 2010 in their database. They will update it again after January 2011.
So, if your conference was after February 2010, check the database of ISI again after January 2011. 

2. All the WSEAS Conferences (100%) are in ISI, as no WSEAS conference has been rejected from ISI since 1996.

3.  All the WSEAS Books, proceedings, CDs are in ISI independently if a particular article or chapter of a book does not appear in a search engine . So, check your Book, CD, Proceedings here: 

MESSAGE FROM PROF. ZADEH: I should like to extend to you my best wishes for the holidays and the New Year. Special thanks to those of you who have posted stimulating and thought-provoking messages commenting on a wide variety of issues.  Two years ago, in December 2008, we were emerging from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The world of finance came close to total collapse. Today, the worst is behind us but the sky is cloudy. Greece, Portugal and Ireland came close to defaulting. Several other countries in the Eurozone have piled-up high debts. In the United States, the Federal Reserve is printing money.

Some prominent economists predict that the United States is heading toward bankruptcy.

What caused the crisis? As always, there is more than one cause. An underlying cause relates to what I called--in a paper published in 1974 "On the analysis of large-scale systems"--the crisis of undercoordination. An updated version is attached. 
The world is becoming increasingly interconnected due to advances in technology and growth in numbers. System theory tells us that highly interconnected systems are vulnerable to catastrophic failures. To prevent failures, it is necessary to resort to coordination. Coordination is associated with regulation and control. Since nobody likes regulation and control, the degree of coordination in modern societies falls short of what is needed to insure stability. This is a reality that underlies the crisis of undercoordination. A visible result of undercoordination is a tendency to pile up debt which will have to be repaid by future generations. The problem is that in democratic societies future generations have no vote.

As a member of the academic world, I do not have to worry about losing my job, though I can understand the despair of those who have lost theirs and cannot find a new one. Beyond unemployment, an issue that is of serious concern to me is the growing domination of money and commercialism in our society. In the United States, universities--in particular private universities--are much more money-oriented than they were when I entered the academic world. It used to be the case that money was what was needed to support research. In large measure, today research is what is needed to bring in money. Today, in many universities, assistant professors are warned that if they do not bring money they will not be given tenure. To me, this is deplorable. Crass money-centricism is degrading our culture and our moral values. 

Unfortunately, money-centricity is infectious. In many countries, money-centricity is in fashion. This is particularly noticeable in the case of Russia, where pursuit of money-centricity has become an official policy. Looking into the future a time will come when Moscow State University will be renamed Abramovich University--named after the richest oligarch in Russia. After all, in the United States we have Rockefeller University, Carnegie-Mellon University, and many others named after rich donors. 

Regards to all,

Prof. Yuriy S. Shmaliy, WSEAS Member and WSEAS Plenary Speaker many times has been elevated as IEEE Fellow. This is really a great distinction and important event (Yuriy is originally from Ukraine, currently  Professor in Guanajuato University, in Mexico and this year, all the Latin America had only 4 (new) IEEE Fellows. One of them was Yuriy). 
"I need to go in early May of 2011 to San Francisco where the recognition ofnew Fellows will be organized by my IEEE UFFC Society, to thank friends and colleagues. But 2011 is already scheduled mostly for the WSEAS events and

Prof. Yuriy S. Shmaliy told us: "I am now managing to arrange this extra trip. But it is going to be OK with this. This year I decided to spend the University support and my own resources  (I am traveling with wife) mostly to the WSEAS conferences. It is not usual for me, because of the IEEE activity. But, well, WSEAS becomes more and more attractive."

Prof. Yuriy S. Shmaliy is a WSEAS Plenary lecture in the upcoming WSEAS conferences in the University of Cambridge (Febr. 2011) 
He has also accepted to organize a special session in the SIP 2011 (still not placed on the WEB site) 
and plan to propose a special session or a plenary lecture to the WSEAS conference in Florence, Italy 
Prof. Yuriy S. Shmaliy declared for Prof. Nikos E. Mastorakis
"I appreciate the efforts of Prof. Mastorakis in the area of science and technology as a founder of WSEAS and hope that an example of my increasing WSEAS activity can a bit energize you"



Prof. Demetrios Kazakos, also IEEE Fellow, WSEAS Member and WSEAS Plenary Speakermany times has been elected and nominated  Program Director in National Science Foundation. (USA)   dkazakos (AT) . Prof. Kazakos, WSEAS Member and frequent participant, IEEE Fellow and Director of NSF will be WSEAS Keynote Speaker in  WSEAS Applied Informatics and Communications, Aug 23-25, 2011, Florence, Italy.

Professor Kamisetty R. RAO, WSEAS Fellow, IEEE Fellow
(WSEAS Plenary Speaker for more than 10 conferences). 
The new book FAST FOURIER TRANSFORM USING MATLAB by Dr. Rao (WSEAS Fellow, IEEE Fellow (WSEAS Plenary Speaker for more than 10 conferences), Dr. Kim, and Dr. Hwang is an engaging look in the world of FFT algorithms and applications. This book not only provides detailed description of a wide-variety of FFT algorithms, gives the mathematical derivations of these algorithms...

 WSEAS JournalsThe WSEAS Journals are entirely independent from the WSEAS Conferences, since they are currently candidates in ISI Web of Knowledge (all the WSEAS Conferences and Books have been already in ISI Web of Knowledge). Authors can send (upload) their papers to WSEAS Transactions regardless of whether they have attended a WSEAS conference or not. Also the WSEAS Transactions are the only open access journals in the world where the Authors do not pay any kind of registration fees or publication fees or "donation" (i.e. the full PDF files of the papers are permanantly open for everybody, without any restrictions, while the authors are not charged with any kind of fees). The Editors-in-Chief, being assisted by the members of the Editorial Boards, are the absolute decision makers for the acceptance or not of the submitted papers. WSEAS simply prints out the papers in hard copies & on the web.

Additional features of the conferences:

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

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 various international journals that participate in the major International Scientific
Indices (ISI, Elsevier, Scopus, EI, Compendex, INSPEC, CSA .... see:     ).


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 6 coffee-breaks and a  Banquet

4) 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:
