    Fake paper in an IEEE Conference!

    It is time to learn how fake is the IEEE: IEEE = money driven society

    Learn this story:

    A paper titled "Towards the Simulation of E-Commerce" by Herbert Schlangemann
    got accepted as a reviewed paper at the
    "International Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering"
    and is now available in the IEEE Xplore Database

    The author is named after the Swedish short film Der Schlangemann.
    Furthermore the author became a session chair during the conference"

    Read the official Herbert Schlangemann Blog for details

    Official review comment:

    "This paper presents cooperative technology and classical Communication.
    In conclusion, the result shows that though the much-touted amphibious algorithm for
    the refinement of randomized algorithms is impossible, the well-known client-server
    algorithm for the analysis of voice-over- IP by Kumar and Raman runs in _(n) time.
    The authors can clearly identify important features of visualization of DHTs and analyze
    them insightfully. It is recommended that the authors should develop ideas more cogently,
    organizes them more logically, and connects them with clear transitions"

    This is not the first time that the IEEE Conferences accept pseudo-papers

    In a conference of IEEE conference in Boston, Professor Basu, published 6 garbage papers
    from the university of Colorado.

    Shame on IEEE
    another person from France published in an IEEE "prestigious" conference
    a paper that was unification of 3 papers that he found randomly on the web.
    The first paper was on ELECTRIC MACHINES,
    and the third paper was on AIRCONDITIONING and COOLING.

    The stupid Professor of IEEE in Paris asked from this person to send 430 USD.

    This conference had more than 500 papers
    Who receive all these money
    500*430 $ ?
    The "non-profit" IEEE. Is IEEE a non-for-profit society or it
    is something like MicroSoft of Bill Gates

    If each IEEE Conference gathers more than 1200 registrations, with an average of 600 $, we have 720000 $.
    In what pocket all this money goes
    Other Societies like SIAM, ACM etc... does not have this behaviour.
    We try to have a discount in your conference, but we failed.
    “This has created just tremendous bad will toward the IEEE,” said Kenneth Foster,
    a University of Pennsylvania professor of bioengineering and an IEEE fellow

    The petition's administrator, professor Michael Gevers of Universite
    Catholique du Louvain in Belgium, said that the one fifth of the petition's
    backers who attached a note sent “extremely angry comments… Many of them say,
    'If that continues, I will not renew my membership,'” he told The Scientist.
    About 1000 of the signatories are from the United States, Gevers said.

    "Only if you put in your paper the name of a well-known Professor in USA, member of IEEE, you can have a full paper in IEEE" professors use to say. "This is because IEEE is an AMERICAN Company. We must make it clear." If you doubt, you can see the following interesting links:
