The blog http://bogus-conferences.blogspot.com posted this: Spam from a Typically Bogus and Fake Scam IEEE Conference. The world record of fake SCIgen papers belongs to World Scientific (Singapore) and its daughter company Imperial College Press with 250 fake SCIgen papers.


This is the most recent spam from Spam from a typically Bogus and Fake Scam IEEE Conference.
Fake Scam IEEE Conferences follow and aggresive predatory policy and publish garbage, nonsense, junk SCIgen papers. Only 120 Scigen papers have been indentified in IEEE Explore

120 computer generated (SCIgen) papers in IEEE. IEEE the King of Fake Conferences. Fake and Bogus Conferences by IEEE



Over the past two years, computer scientist Cyril Labbé of Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France, has catalogued computer-generated papers that made it into more than 30 published conference proceedings between 2008 and 2013. Sixteen appeared in publications by Springer, which is headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany, and more than 100 were published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), based in New York. Both publishers, which were privately informed by Labbé, say that they are now removing the papers.Labbé emphasizes that the nonsense computer science papers all appeared in subscription offerings. In his view, there is little evidence that open-access publishers — which charge fees to publish manuscripts — necessarily have less stringent peer review than subscription publishers.

See also:  https://www.google.com/search?q=120+fake+papers+in+IEEE&oq=120+fake+papers+in+IEEE&aqs=chrome..69i57.5164j0j4&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8

We don’t know what will happen in the case of Springer, but there’s a line in the story about what IEEE have done: ‘the web pages for the removed articles give no explanation for their absence.’
For example, here’s one (the paper ‘TIC: a methodology for the construction of e-commerce’, mentioned in the story): http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/login.jsp?tp=&arnumber=6626010&url=http%3A%2F%2Fieeexplore.ieee.org%2Fxpls%2Fabs_all.jsp%3Farnumber%3D6626010
As you can see, it just says ‘page not found’. (Although, this paper still has a DOI and is indexed in Scopus, last I checked).
If all the papers are treated like that, then none of these show up as retractions. They simply vanish. Then again, they are entirely worthless nonsense

Over than 250 Fake Scigen Papers in World Scientific Publishing (Singapore) and Imperial College Press (Singapore) . Over than 120 Fake Scigen Papers in IEEE and Springer Verlag

A wild, aggressive and predatory SPAM from the BOGUS, FAKE, JUNK: World Scientific Publishing (Singapore) and BOGUS, FAKE, JUNK:  Imperial College Press reached all the mail boxes of our organization. This is annoying. World Scientific Publishing (Singapore) and Imperial College Press (Singapore) are two companies of the same owners seeking for easy profit and easy money from dupes (innocent or not so innocent scholars).

We can now prove that World Scientific Publishing (Singapore) and Imperial College Press (Singapore) are 2 bogus, fake, predatory, junk, mock, scam companies because:

1. They are commercial enterprizes and no scientific societies

2. They publish thousand volumes of Junk conferences every year without review and without quality control

3. They charge 1750 - 2500 USD per paper for their Open Access Journals

4. They have a good number of Journals without editor-in-chief

5. They claim that they have a number of Nobel Laureates in their Editorial Boards, but they are actually without their knowledge and without their permision

6. 
 World Scientific Publishing (Singapore) and Imperial College Press (Singapore)  have retracted from their Proceedings and Journals hundred of fake SCIgen papers
See:  http://retractionwatch.com/2014/02/27/unfortunately-scientific-publishing-is-not-immune-to-fraud-and-mistakes-springer-responds-to-fake-papers-story/
http://retractionwatch.com/2014/02/18/retractions-are-useful-for-teaching-science-say-college-profs/

7. "Imperial College Press" was several years ago the Publisher of the Imperial College of the University of London. Now, it is simply a Brand of World Scientific Publishing (they bought it). So, World Scientific Publishing uses now the name of IMPERIAL COLLEGE 
unreasonably, illegally, immorally!!!


8. World Scientific Publishing uses SPAM Marketing and unsolicited email war to recruit authors, editors and customers (libraries)


9. Like IEEE (See http://www.nature.com/news/publishers-withdraw-more-than-120-gibberish-papers-1.14763 ) they have recently removed over than 250 SCIgen, garbage papers from their Digital Library.

120 gibberish papers by IEEE and Springer Verlag. Google: 120 Gibberish Papers

ATG Article of the Week: “Publishers withdraw more than 120 gibberish papers”


Written by Richard Van Noorden and posted on the Nature website “Publishers withdraw more than 120 gibberish papers” spotlights the efforts of  Cyril Labbé of Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France, who has uncovered “computer-generated papers that made it into more than 30 published conference proceedings between 2008 and 2013.”
These “nonsense papers” are created by freely available software called SCIgen which “was invented in 2005 by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge to prove that conferences would accept meaningless papers.”  These MIT researchers have had their contention reinforced as 120 papers previously accepted for publication in a number of conference proceedings have been removed.  After being informed by Mr. Labbé, who has created a website to detect SCIgen produced papers, science publisher Springer removed 16 papers from its publications and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers removed more than 100 from it’s published proceedings.
The article goes on to point out that this incident is only one in a long line of successful efforts in “getting spoof papers accepted in conferences or by journals to reveal weaknesses in academic quality controls.”  The proceedings where the SCIgen articles were accepted claim to be peer reviewed and these problems only add to the mounting evidence that the peer review process may be in serious need of tightening

Other Fake Conferences of IEEE.

http://blog.lib.umn.edu/denis036/thisweekinevolution/2011/07/would_ieee_really_sponsor_a_fa.html

They say:

Would IEEE really sponsor a fake scientific conference?

The email was typical fake-scientific-conference-in-China spam: "we courteously invite you to deliver a Plenary Speech" as a "leading authority" in a field where I have no expertise. I've gotten several of these from "BIT Life Sciences."
This time, though, IEEE, a (formerly?) respectable engineering organization, was listed as a sponsor. I assumed the scam was using IEEE's name without permission, but the "6th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering " is actually listed on the IEEE web site. Apparently, IEEE has been involved in many fake conferences, which have, for example, accepted papers that are computer-generated garbage. Sad.
Not all conferences in China are fake -- I went to one a few years ago that was excellent, and am scheduled to speak at another -- and fake conferences are presumably held in other countries as well. China does seem to be afflicted with more than its share, though. Maybe it's harder to sue there, or something.
UPDATE -- someone left a comment with links to a blog suggesting that IEEE sponsors many fake conferences. Unfortunately, I had to delete the comment, because it linked to a blog attributing my concerns to "The University of Minnesota." The views presented here are my own, and not official positions of the university.

See some comments:

I do not agree with the previous commentor.
One more example is the IEEE fake conference
http://www.icmtconf.org/2012/

They claim that they have:
"Review duration: 15-20 days after submission"
Check it http://www.icmtconf.org/2012/
How can a serious conference with hundred of papers to make review of all these papers within 15 days?
Our conclusion that seems to be the standard for the majority of IEEE is:
The IEEE conferences do not have any review. They work only for money
Google: IEEE fake papers
or IEEE Junk Conferences or IEEE bogus or IEEE scam
Fake IEEE MED conferences:
These conferences are organized by the "Mediterranean Control Association"
However, this "Association" is a Company based in USA by a Greek Professor.
We sent them two papers describing the equipment of our laboratory.
We copied the manual of Inverted Pendulum and we got the acceptance letter after
some days. So, for sure include in your fake conferences list the
Fake IEEE MED conferences
All the IEEE Conferences (organized by IEEE itselfor sponsored or co-sponsored or technically cosponsored by IEEE) are fake, junk, garbage, bogus, scam conferences.
Some of these conferences run only in the 1st or the 1st and 2nd day only and then they close. Obviously they try to save money from their hotel financial obligations.
IEEE, ACM, ASME and SIAM Conferences evaluate only the Abstract of the papers, even for the conferences that they claim evaluation on the full text.
So, IEEE, ACM, ASME, SIAM, WORLDCOMP etc...
have numerous times accepted and published SCIgen (automatically generated texts). Only for the IEEE, the Central Administration of IEEE found 1100 Conferences with fake, SCIgen papers.
Try yourself googling:
IEEE bogus
ASME bogus
SIAM bogus
ACM bogus
or visit
http://fakeconferences.blogspot.gr/2012/04/4-new-denouncements-for-fake-scam-ieee.html

I participated in many IEEE Conferences in Malaysia and Singapore. I published 8 common papers and I had never received any comment, any remark, any question from IEEE, except sometime in 2011, that I got some minor remark about the format of my paper. These IEEE Conferences in Malaysia and Singapore are of dubious quality and maybe they are good schemes for making money for their organizers. We call them bogus, fake.
