      The International Multiconferences in Computer Science
      is a major annual international research event.
      The last Multiconferences attracted over 1400 computer
      science researchers.  It is anticipated that The 2002
      International Multiconferences will attract about 2000
      participants.  The 2002 event will be composed of 14
      (planned) international conferences - attendees will have
      full access to all 14 conferences' sessions and tracks.


      Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies
      of their draft paper (about 5 pages - single spaced and
      font size of 10 to 12) to H. R. Arabnia by the due date
      (who may be forwarding the papers to respective conference
      E-mail and 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
      The first page of the draft paper should include:
      title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal address,
      E-mail address, telephone number, and Fax number for
      each author.  The first page should also include the
      name of the author who will be presenting the paper
      (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords.


      Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
      clarity, and 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.  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 and their staff
      in cooperation with the Monte Carlo Resort (Conference
      Division, Las Vegas ), will be organizing the conferences.
      The conferences will be technically sponsored by World Academy
      of Sciences and co-sponsored by Computer Science Research,
      Education, & Applications Press (CSREA: USA Federal
      EIN # 58-2171953) together with research centers,
      international associations, international research groups,
      and developers of high-performance machines and systems.
      The complete list of sponsors and co-sponsors will be
      available at a later time.
      (Previous conferences' sponsors included: CSREA,
      the National Supercomputing Center for Energy and the

      The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort
      hotel Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at
      other near-by hotels).  The Monte Carlo Resort is a mega
      hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000
      rooms.  The hotel is minutes from the Las Vegas airport
      with 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport.
      This hotel has many vacation and recreational attractions,
      including: waterfalls, casino, spa, pools & kiddie pools,
      sunning decks, Easy River water ride, wave pool with
      cascades, lighted tennis courts, health spa (with workout
      equipment, whirlpool, sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality
      game rooms, nightly shows, snack bars, a number of
      restaurants, shopping area, bars, ...  Many of these
      attractions are open 24 hours a day and most are suitable for
      families and children.  The negotiated hotel's room rate
      for conference attendees is very reasonable (79USD + tax)
      per night (no extra charge for double occupancy) for the
      duration of the conference.
      The hotel is within walking distance from most other
      Las Vegas attractions (major shopping areas, recreational
      destinations, fine dining and night clubs, free street
      shows, ...).
      For the benefit of our international colleagues: the
      state of Nevada neighbors with the states of California,
      Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Arizona.  Las Vegas is only a
      few driving hours away from other major cities, including:
      Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Grand Canyon, ...


      An exhibition is planned for the duration of the conferences.
      Interested parties should contact H. R. Arabnia (address is
