SUBMISSION OF PAPERS, PUBLICATION, INDEXING INFORMATION:

This is a Call For Papers for publication in the Final Edition
of the conference proceedings. All papers submitted in response
to this announcement will be evaluated for publication in the
Final Edition of the proceedings (publication date: late August
2010; the Final Edition of the proceedings will be shipped to
the registered authors of accepted papers after the conference).
The conference proceedings will be published in both, printed
book/ISBN form as well as online.

Prospective authors are invited to submit/upload their full papers
in pdf or MS doc (about 7 pages, single spaced with the font size
of 10 or 11) to the following web site:

http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/

Full papers will be considered for both, oral presentation and
publication in the conference proceedings (as well as consideration
for various journal special issues and book projects). Abstract
submissions (one/two-page) will be considered for poster
presentations and one/two-page publication in the proceedings.

All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable.  Authors of
accepted papers will later be asked to follow a particular
typing instructions to prepare their final paper for publication.

Papers must not have been previously published or currently
submitted for publication elsewhere.  The first page of the paper
should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal
address, and email address for each author.  Accepted papers
will be published in the final edition of the respective
proceedings/books.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness.
In cases of contradictory recommendations, a member of the
conference program committee will be charged to make the final
decision (accept/reject) - often, this would involve seeking help
from additional referees by using a double-blinded review process.
In addition, all papers whose authors included a member of the
conference program committee will be evaluated using the
double-blinded review process.


IMPORTANT DATES:

May 31, 2010:      Submission of papers
June 12, 2010:     Notification of acceptance (+/- two days)
June 24, 2010:     Registration
