Prof. Nikos Mastorakis: Quality of Conferences and Quality of Fake Blogs and Bogus Scientific Fora

Dear WSEAS-ers,
From time to time, some other conference organizers, i.e. some "colleagues" that run their own conferences use to open "fake blogs" (scam, fraud) on the web and "protest" because they receive an email from WSEAS. (By the way, see below just one of the Spams that I received from TAYLOR and FRANCIS).
I wonder why the owners of these bogus blogs (scam, fraud blogs) don't protest for their own conference organizers or why they do not say the truth that just because they run their own conferences they want to blame and harm not only WSEAS but also IEEE, ACM, SIAM, Springer, Hindawi, IADIS, IASTED, IARIA etc...

These junk-bloggers try to defame WSEAS and many other serious societies and organization like IEEE, Springer Verlag, SIAM, Elsevier, Springer calling them as fraud, scam, bogus, junk, garbage and the like.

For instance we received some days ago the following email many times (obviously SPAM) from TAYLOR and FRANCIS.

Will the bogus blogs (scam blogs - fraud blogs) of these scam folks write that TAYLOR and FRANCIS send them spam as well?
In the same category with these junk blogs, there are some internet trolls and some adventurers that if they receive (eventually) some "call-for-papers" from some organizers they stuff the web, they upload new posts (even new blogs) in their scam blogs with so many protests about ostensible "fake" conferences. Some times, they do not hesitate to compose spurious and falsified letters of acceptances (obviously garbages) supposed that they were sent to them by IEEE, SIAM, IET, IASTED, IARIA or even WSEAS.

When these academic criminals, these crooks, these internet trolls, receive an email from Springer Verlag / Taylor and Francis / Elsevier/ IEEE / SIAM , they start blogging, shooting for Spam, clamoring for Bogus Conferences , for Junk conferences and the like. I do not know what the others do, but the WSEAS Conferences have now in all the Conference Proceedings (Hard Copy and CDs) the name of the Reviewers and we intend to publish in the near future the names of the Reviewers per each paper as well as the number of the Rejected papers that they reject. The email addresses of the Reviewers will be on the Proceedings and every well wisher can check it.
In fact, the only valid, the only reputable, the only correct method for evaluating the quality and the seriousness of a conference is to see and to check the INDICES that this conference participate. Bogus Blogs, Junk Fora, Spam Emails etc... have zero reputability, zero seriousness. Only the INDEXING of some conference (and of journals of course) will reveal what is the QUALITY of it. Any information from pseudo-blogs, any disinformation of the internet jungle is absolutely unacceptable, deceptive, fraudulent and miserable. 

Additionally a garbage "IEEE blog on Computational Complexity" use to blame from time to time many conference organizers, but this garbage "IEEE blog on Computational Complexity" has never reported the two fake (SCIgen) papers (scam, fraud) that these people were accepted in their IEEE Conference on Computational Complexity (find these SCIgen papers in IEEE Conference on Computational Complexity by Google)

Zadeh response to Klir Panel on Uncertainty/

From: Ronald R. Yager <yager@panix.com>

Hi Lotfi:
  In your response to George Klir you raise some interesting issues.  However I would like to ask you what do you mean by "how much" information is contained in a proposition, p, drawn from a natural language and your example about the amount of information in the statement  Blood pressure is high?
How is what you have in mind different from the concept of specificity ??

 I feel that the measure of information should be context dependent.  Perhaps rather then asking for a measure of information the more relevant question is how useful is the knowledge I have in the context I am trying to use the knowledge   Here then perhaps in the spirit of GTU the concept of "usefulness/ measure" of the knowledge should be more related to idea of containment.  Thus if I know that some variable is restricted by V is F and if I have a task that requires to know whether it is restricted by V is E then it appears to me  that  the amount of information I have  is related to my ability to distinguish
between the truth of   V is E and V is not E .

r r yager


Dear George:

    Many thanks for your scholarly summary of your Generalized Information Theory (GIT). In your summary, you touch upon the relationship between GIT and my Generalized Theory of Uncertainty (GTU). I should like to comment on this relationship.

    As I see it, in large measure GIT and GTU are complementary. The principal difference between GIT and GTU is the following. GIT is concerned, in the main, with measures of information, as is classical information theory. On another side, GTU is concerned, in the main, with the meaning of information. To amplify this difference, a bit of history is in order. I was fortunate to hear Shannon's first lecture on information theory in 1946, in New York. I was a student at Columbia University at the time. I was profoundly impressed by Shannon's exposition of his work. In his talk, Shannon opened the door to a new and fascinating world -- the digital world of data, entropy, channels and coding. Shannon was careful to point out that his main concern was communication of information, and not its meaning. In this context, it is clear that what matters is the measure of information and not its content. Subsequently, some attempts were made, notably by Minsky and Bar-Hillel, to develop theories of semantic information. These attempts were not successful.
    GIT is a significant generalization of classical information theory, but it stops short of consideration of semantic issues. In contrast, GTU stops short of exploration of issues which relate to measures of information. In the world of human cognition, information is described in a natural language. A basic issue which, to my knowledge, has not been addressed so far is: How much information is contained in a proposition, p, drawn from a natural language? Example. How much information is contained in the proposition: Blood pressure is high? A less simple example. How much information is contained in the proposition: It is probable that blood pressure is high? A significantly more complex example is the proposition: It is very unlikely that there will be a significant decrease in the price of oil in the near future. Clearly, to answer questions of this kind it is necessary to have a means of precisiating the meaning of a proposition drawn from a natural language. GTU provides this means but does not address the issue of measuring the information conveyed by propositions drawn from a natural language. This issue falls within the province of GIT.

    In GTU, information is equated to a restriction. In classical information theory as well as in GIT, information is assumed to be statistical in nature. Definition of information in GTU breaks away from this assumption.

    GIT is an important generalization of classical information theory. It is a real challenge to extend GIT in a way that would enable GIT to deal with information which is conveyed by propositions drawn from a natural language. Do you have any thoughts relating to this issue?

WSEAS Journals have been entirely independent from the WSEAS Conferences since the end
of 2006, so they achieved to be candidates in ISI Web of Knowledge (all the WSEAS Conferences & Books have already been indexed in ISI Web of Knowledge). Authors can upload their papers to the WSEAS Transactions regardless of whether they have attended a WSEAS conference or not. Also the WSEAS Transactions are the only open access journals in the world where the authors do not pay any kind of registration or publication fees or "donations" (the full PDF files of the papers are permanently available to everybody, without any restrictions, while the authors are not charged with any kind of fees). The Editors-in-Chief, being assisted by the members of the Editorial Boards, are the sole decision makers for the acceptance or not of the papers

WSEAS Books and Proceedings in ISI: WSEAS is proud to announce that all the WSEAS Conference Proceedings, Monographies and Other Books from the period 1996-2010 are in ISI. The successful inclusion of all the WSEAS Books, Monographies and Proceedings of the year 2010 has now been completed. This is due to the hard work of a total of 12000 reviewers, who offered their valuable services to WSEAS within the previous year. Many of them are with the Universities that sponsored, organized or co-organized the WSEAS Conferences of 2010. Every WSEAS Author can now check the inclusion of their papers in ISI: http://portal.isiknowledge.com
