Fake Conferences CSCI and WORLDCOMP of Hamid Arabnia

If you have any thought of attending the world’s biggest 
fake conference in computer science, WORLDCOMP  
http://www.world-academy-of-science.org you must visit any 
websites below

The organizer of this conference is Hamid Arabnia  
http://www.cs.uga.edu/~hra a professor from University 
of Georgia, Athens, US.  The primary goal of this 
conference is to collect registration fee by accepting 
all submitted papers. Several fake papers were published 
in the conference proceedings. He already earned millions 
of dollars from the registration fee and is using part 
of the money for anti-Christmas greetings campaign.   
http://worldcomp-fake-bogus.blogspot.com   has 
additional information on this campaign. He recently 
started another new conference CSCI due to his hunger 
for money  http://www.americancse.org

Hamid Arabnia failed to reveal the reviews and reviewers' 
information for all the papers he received, despite 
repeated requests and challenges. The reason for his 
failure is there were no reviews and reviewers and he 
just cheated the research community for more than a 
decade by announcing that each draft paper is reviewed 
by two experts. We challenge him to publish these details 
at the conference website. Where are these experts? 
Where are these reviews? 

Soon he comes up with a story that he lost all the reviews 
and reviewers’ information because of computer crash or 
theft.

DBLP stopped indexing these conferences since 2011 
and displayed an explicit message; 
The DBLP Advisory Board decided to discontinue indexing of 
this conference series. Visit 
http://www.informatik.uni-trier.de/~ley/db/conf/biocomp/index.html 
as a sample.

He was forced to remove his name, the university of 
Georgia name, and university of Georgia email address from 
the conference’s contact page because the University has 
banned him from doing that. Do not spoil your resume by 
publishing in this bogus conference.

Apologies for posting to multiple mailing lists. Spreading the 
news is the only way to stop this conference from harming 
innocent researchers.

Respectfully,
Many researchers cheated by Hamid Arabnia’s fake conferences
