Victims of Fake Conferences

    Dear all,

    I just found out information about conference run by WASET
    organization is either fake or illegal. Last time, when I was googling
    for a conference of image processing, I found out six names of ICIP in
    2015, one is the reputable conducted by IEEE and the rest five are
    conducted by WASET.

    The original : http://www.icip2015.org/
    WASET conference : https://www.waset.org/conference/2015/01/zurich/ICIP

    Based on this ambigous, I checked on Google and found out that many
    people have been 'fooled' by this organization. This organization used
    illegally the name from such reputable conferences, not only for ICIP
    but many reputable conference names on their list.

    Here some stories from people who have experiences dealing with this


    So, for those who find out the conference run by this organization,
    please check the originality and warn not to sent your papers to the
    conference. Hope this information is useful for all of us.

    Thank you,

  2. In 2005, a group of MIT graduate students decided to goof off in a very MIT graduate student way: They created a program called SCIgen that randomly generated fake scientific papers. Thanks to SCIgen, for the last several years, computer-written gobbledygook has been routinely published in scientific journals and conference proceedings.

    According to Nature News, Cyril Labbé, a French computer scientist, recently informed Springer and the IEEE, two major scientific publishers, that between them, they had published more than 120 algorithmically-generated articles. In 2012, Labbé had told the IEEE of another batch of 85 fake articles. He's been playing with SCIgen for a few years—in 2010 a fake researcher he created, Ike Antkare, briefly became the 21st most highly cited scientist in Google Scholar's database.

    On the one hand, it's impressive that computer programs are now good enough to create passable gibberish. (You can entertain yourself by trying to distinguish real science from nonsense on quiz sites like this one.) But the wide acceptance of these papers by respected journals is symptomatic of a deeper dysfunction in scientific publishing, in which quantitative measures of citation have acquired an importance that is distorting the practice of science.
