PURPOSE / HISTORY:

   SERP'08 is part of WORLDCOMP'08.  WORLDCOMP is the largest annual
   gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering
   and applied computing; it is composed of a number of joint
conferences.
   Many of these joint conferences are the premier conferences for
   presentation of advances in their respective fields.  We anticipate
   to have over 2,600 attendees from over 80 countries participating
in
   the 2008 event.  SERP'08 will be composed of research
   presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials,
   panel discussions, and poster presentations.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

   Prospective authors are invited to submit their full paper
   (about 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to
   Prof. H. R. Arabnia by Mar. 10, 2008 (hra@cs.uga.edu). email
   submissions in MS Doc or PDF formats are preferable.  All
reasonable
   typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted
   papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format
   to prepare their papers for publication.)

   The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited
to
   7 (IEEE style) pages.  Papers must not have been previously
published
   or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.  The first page
of
   the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name,
affiliation,
   postal address, and email address of each author as well as the
name
   of the conference the paper is being submitted to (ie, SERP'08).
   The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
   and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
   content of the paper.

   Each paper will be refereed by two experts in the field who are
   independent of the conference program committee.  The referees'
   evaluations will then be reviewed by one member of the program
   committee who will recommend a decision to the co-chairs of the
track.
   The track chairs will make the final decision.  Lastly, the Camera-
Ready
   papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.

GENERAL CO-CHAIR / COORDINATOR:

   Prof. Hamid R. Arabnia
   Editor-in-Chief, The Journal of Supercomputing (Springer)
   Vice President, Int'l Society of Intelligent Biological Medicine
   The University of Georgia
   Department of Computer Science
   415 Graduate Studies Research Center

LOCATION OF CONFERENCE:

   SERP will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada,
   USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels).  This is a mega
   hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms.
   It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle service to and
   from the airport.  This hotel has many recreational attractions,
   including: spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy River, wave pool,
   lighted tennis courts, nightly shows, a number of restaurants, ...
   The negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very
reasonable.
   The hotel is within walking distance from most other attractions.
