Fake Guru Hamid Arabnia and bogus WORLDCOMP and CSCI 

If you have any thought of attending the world’s biggest  
fake or bogus 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, USA. 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? 

He pays tens of thousands of dollars and brings keynote 
speakers and project his conference as a great one. He 
lists the names of current and former keynote speakers 
on the front page of the conference and use those names
as baits to attract paper submissions from innocent researchers. 
He always conducts the conferences in the “sin city” to attract 
people who prefer “other” activities.

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 
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. He is running the conference
behind the scenes and there is no coordinator or general chair
listed for this conference. 

Almost every week (until the conference date is so close), 
Hamid Arabnia updates the conference website with things 
like this: You are invited to submit a "Late Breaking Paper", 
"Position Paper", "Abstract/Poster Paper" or “Abstract of 
Thesis or Dissertation” for consideration, etc. He wants 
more papers because each paper generates around 500 US 
dollars in to his pocket.

Additional information on this conference bogus conference is 
available by searching internet using the keywords 
worldcomp fake or Hamid Arabnia fake 

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