   The International Multiconference in Computer Science
   and Computer Engineering is a major annual international
   research event.  It assembles a spectrum of affiliated
   research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a
   coordinated research meeting held in a common place at
   a common time.  This model facilitates communication among
   researchers in different fields of computer science and
   computer engineering.  The last Multiconference attracted
   over 1,650 computer science and Engineering researchers
   from 78 countries.  It is anticipated that The 2004 Int'l
   Multiconference will attract about 2000 participants.
   The 2004 event is composed of 18 (planned) major
   conferences - attendees will have full access to all 18
   conferences' sessions & tracks.
   Each conference will have its own proceedings.  All
   conference proceedings/books 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,
   DBLP, ...).


   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 submissions in
   MS document or PDF formats are preferable (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, 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).  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,
   DBLP, ...).


   A number of university faculty members and their staff
   in cooperation with the Monte Carlo Resort (Conference
   Division) will be organizing the conference.
   Technical co-sponsors include: World Academy of
   Science (non-profit organization - pending); 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 co-sponsors will be available at a later time.
   (Previous conferences' sponsors included: CSREA,
   the National Supercomputing Center for Energy and the
   Environment - DOE, The International Association for
   Mathematics and Computers in Simulation, The

   of computer associations from various countries, ...)


   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 & over 3,000 rooms.
   The hotel is minutes from the airport with 24-hour
   shuttle service to & from the airport.  This hotel has
   many recreational attractions, including: waterfalls,
   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 & most are suitable for families & children.  The
   negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very
   reasonable.  The hotel is within walking distance from
   most other attractions (major shopping areas, recreational
   destinations, fine dining & night clubs, free street
