Fake Conferences CSCI and WORLDCOMP of Hamid Arabnia
Hamid Arabnia from University of Georgia is well known
for his fake WORLDCOMP conferences
https://sites.google.com/site/dumpconf This website
has an open challenge posted sometime in 2012 and it
also has comments from several well-known researchers
on WORLDCOMP. Hamd Arabnia never responded to these
because his conferences are bogus.
Hamid Arabnia (the money hungry professor) has
recently started 2014 International Conference on
Computational Science and Computational Intelligence
(CSCI'14) http://www.americancse.org to deceive
researchers further. CSCI'14 is started under the
title of “American Council on Science and Education”
which is a dummy corporation (does not exist anywhere
in the world). Hamid Arabnia buried his name in the
list of names of other innocent steering and program
committee members of CSCI’14 to avoid any special
attention. He knows that if his name is given any
special attention then researchers immediately notice
that the conference is fake due to his “track record”
with WORLDCOMP. Hamid Arabnia (Guru of Fake
Conferences and champion of academic scam) spoiled the
reputations and careers of many authors who submitted
papers to his infamous WORLDCOMP for more than a
decade and he is now ready to do the same using CSCI.
Interestingly, CSCI is scheduled to be held at the
same venue where WORLDCOMP was held until 2012. CSCI
has no general chair. It has no physical person’s
name or physical address or phone number to contact. Only
contact address is an email address. Hamid Arabnia and
his puppets answer the emails, if needed, using fake names.
Do not spoil your resume by submitting your papers in this
bogus conference CSCI which will not be held beyond 2014.
CSCI will not be indexed by DBLP.
Recently, Hamid Arabnia paid money and published few
“news articles” claiming him a victim of online harassment
and cyber bullying. Now he started posting (using fake
names and through his puppets) in various emails, blogs
and forums, referring to those “news articles” and trying
to get back sympathy and trust of the research community
to make his CSCI successful. Hamid Arabnia is a Wolf in
a Sheep’s skin.
We challenge Hamid Arabnia to openly publish the names and
affiliation details of the reviewers for thousands of
research papers submitted to WORLDCOMP for the last
thirteen years. We also challenge Hamid Arabnia to openly
publish all the reviews (after removing authors
identification details) for all the thousands of research
papers submitted to WORLDCOMP for the last thirteen years.
There are more challenges at
https://sites.google.com/site/moneycomp1 We know that he
never accepts these challenges because there were no
reviews and no reviewers and he simply cheated the research
community for all these years. We are not surprised if he
comes out tomorrow claiming that his computer crashed and he
lost the reviews and reviewers’ details. He can play any

information on WORLDCOMP, including links to DBLP stop
indexing WORLDCOMP proceedings. See

and his puppet’s Anti-Christmas Greetings campaign.
We ask Hamid Arabnia and his puppets to address the above
issues and challenges before posting any other message.
Do not spoil your resume by publishing in the fake
conferences of Hamid Arabnia.
