    participants.  The 2003 event is composed of 15 (planned) major
    conferences - attendees will have full access to all 15
    conferences' sessions & tracks.


    Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies
    of their draft paper (about 5 pages - single space, font size
    of 10 to 12) to H. R. Arabnia by the due date (who may be
    forwarding the papers to respective conference chairs/committees).
    E-mail & Fax submissions are also acceptable.

    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, E-mail
    address, telephone number, & Fax number for each author.  The first
    page should also include the name of the author who will be
    presenting the paper (if accepted) & a maximum of 5 keywords.


    Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, &
    soundness.  Each paper will be refereed by two researchers in the
    topical area.  The Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by one person.


    The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press (ISBN)
    in hardcopy/book.  The proceedings will be available at the conference.
    Some accepted papers will also be considered for journal publication
    (soon after the conference).  (In addition to the hardcopy, it is
    also planned to publish the papers on a CD.) All conference
    proceedings published by CSREA Press are considered for inclusion
    in major database indexes that are designed to provide easy access
    to the current literature of the sciences (database examples: ISI
    Thomson Scientific, IEE INSPEC, ...).


    A number of university faculty members & their staff in cooperation
    with the Monte Carlo Resort (Conference Division, Las Vegas ), will
    be organizing the conferences.  The conferences will be sponsored by
    World Academy of Sciences & co-sponsored by Computer Science Research,
    Education, & Applications Press (CSREA: USA Federal EIN # 58-2171953)
    together with research centers, international associations,
    international research groups, & developers of high-performance
