Two Dogs To Present Paper At WSEAS Conference

  • For those of us that don't like dredging around the website for the actual "top 30%" "peer reviewed" paper, here is the link:

      The best part is the list of authors in the references ;^)

        I find it hard to believe that those are completely randomly generated : "Anvil: Construction of context-free grammar." sounds to me very much like the sort of technique that could turn a "dictionary" (for a subject) and a source of random noise into this sort of paper.
        "Byzantine fault tolerance." is a lovely phrase ; I'll have to find a use for it. And I simply refuse to believe that "TANENBAUM , A." came out of the program randomly (but part of the d

  • How much money does the WSEAS make off of each presenter? This sounds a lot like the various "Who's Who" books, which will include a biography of anybody that is will to pay $500 for a copy of the book. I'm sure there are plenty of academics who would be willing to pay dearly to be able to claim their papers have been "published in a peer-reviewed journal" and "presented at a prestigious conference". Yet another sign that I'm obviously in the wrong line of work...
    • I have the quite opposite opinion. This "Letter of Acceptance" is not authentic. How could be this ridiculous story true for a conference organized by a University? The Publishers do now have any relation with this nonsense. Do not be naive. I believe that the "Letter of Acceptance" that this academic criminal has on his web page is fake and copy-paste from other real letter of acceptance. But the letter of acceptance that he has in his web page is false and copy-paste generated from other people's lette
    • Possible? To advance in academia, you need to publish. Real science journals and conferences are competitive and original quality research is tough. Takes talent and a lot of work. That naturally creates demand for venues where acceptance criteria are, let's say, a bit more relaxed. So you write a "paper", send it to this "conference", get an acceptance letter and an invitation to attend, this will get you money from the university for the expenses, you pay the registration fee to the conference organizers

I believe that the "Letter of Acceptance" that this academic criminal has on his web page is fake and copy-pasted from other real letter of acceptance. So, the letter of acceptance that this man has in his web page is absolutely false and copy-paste generated from other
    • Hmm, it's an interesting theory. You might be right. There seems to be a simple way to verify this though. So here is a suggestion to all readers: You can "write" a paper in 5 seconds, just go to http://pdos.csail.mit.edu/scigen/ [mit.edu]. Then submit it to any of WSEAS conferences, and see whether it will get in.
  • I have seen also this counterfeit Web Page. Be sure that these emails on this web page are falsified. This colleague makes unacceptable jokes with prestigious conferences using some strange fraudulent and misleading web pages. Finally, I dare everybody to test these conferences with any kind of paper to see how reliable and secure is the review system of them. Here it is....

  • I also believe that Mr. Chrobak's page and emails are entirely fake. I really do not know his reasons or intentions when it comes to this bizzare story. What matters is that Mr. Chrobak took some other paper's acceptance letter, which he then counterfeited. He changed the name and title and is presenting it as original. Mr. Chrobak can't just copy/paste, obviously from other papers, text and then present it as original. Anything that is on Mr. Chrobak's webpage is fake and has nothing to do with reality.

The idle man does not know what it is to enjoy rest.
