    GCA'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); GCA has been held
    annually since 2005 (GCA'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
    GCA 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. GCA 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.

    GCA'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
    photos available at:
    2008 delegates photos can be viewed at:


    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. GCA)
    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


    March 1, 2010: Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages)
    March 25, 2010: Notification of acceptance
    April 22, 2010: Final papers + Copyright + Registration
    July 12-15, 2010: The 2010 International Conference on
    Grid Computing and Applications (GCA'10)

    URL: http://www.world-academy-of-science.org/


    The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World
    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 GCA'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.
    You can view the list of program committee of the last two
    offerings of GCA 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, GCA).


    GCA'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
    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.
