PEC College's IEEE-EECCMC Spam: "The integrity and security of this message cannot be guaranteed"

The email from "PEC College" may be spam for a real conference. PEC stands for Priyadarshini Engineering College, so PEC College is a name in the style of Joseph Heller's Major Major. The college is "Permanently Affiliated to Anna University." A publication gives some history:
With the sole aim that the accomplishment of the Vision and Mission of the Trust does not get shattered, the matter was referred to the Honorable High Court of Madras for scheming. The Honorable High Court of Madras appointed Retired Justice V.Rengasamy as the Receiver of the Trust in the year 2004 which appointment was confirmed by the Honorable Supreme Court of India, New Delhi. Right from that time Honorable Justice V.Rengasamy with his efficient leadership, guidance and impeccable integrity is administering Priyadarshini Engineering College faithfully following the Vision and Mission of Jai Barath Charitable Trust in letter and spirit and has raised the college to greater heights.
He took initiative to establish palatial buildings and ,,, our labs are deficient free ... .
The advertised conference has no speakers (as of 11/14/17), but it has a committee whose "Chief Patron" is "Honorable Justice V. Rengasamy Administrator, Jai Bharath Charitable Trust."

Allied Academies Is "Promoting Scientific Temperament" with "An Unforgettable Experience in Exploring New Fortuity"

Allied Academies presents itself (11/1/17) as "an established and reputed publisher which started publishing in the year 1994. Initially the focus of the group was to organize conferences and publish articles in the realm of Business and Management, with time the publisher expanded the subject scope and presently focusing on other subject areas." An AA conference website, however, advertises fewer "years of excellence [20] in international meetings."

The conference organizers who solicited me on the basis of my nonexistent "eminence in the diabetes" "are overwhelmed to announce '26th International Conference on Clinical Diabetes' (Clinical Diabetes 2017) as a continuum of our previous successful conference." I too am overwhelmed, especially since the "About Conference" page promises "free communication sessions" and "Fresh New Talent from across the Globe in Health Industry gather[ing] in this world congress." It adds that "Allied Academic Publication is an amalgamation of several esteemed academic and scientific associations known for promoting scientific temperament."

The amalgam's email uses a London address (85 Great Portland St, Marylebone) supplied by a virtual office company. AA is part of the notorious OMICS group, as reflected in the wording of its emails and webpages.

IIIS Seeks "Trandisciplinarity" and "Co-regulative Cybernetic Loops"

A paragraph "About Us" states that "Integration is a main purpose of the international Institute of Informatics and Systemics (IIIS) "• Integration among disciplines: Inter-Disciplinary Research, Education, and Communication. • Integration of Academic Activities: Research, Education, and Consulting/Real life Problem solving.• Integration among Academy, Industry, and Society." This means that "Consequently, IIIS organizes multidisciplinary conferences ... ." The "Current Main Purpose" is turgid:
A main purpose ... is to foster knowledge integration processes, interdisciplinary communication, and integration of academic Activities. Based on 1) the trandisciplinarity of the systemic approach along with its essential characteristic of emphasizing relationships and integrating processes, and 2) on the multidisciplinary support of informatics concepts, notions, theories, technologies, and tools, the IIIS has been organizing in its initial phase multidisciplinary conferences as a platform for fostering inter-disciplinary communication and knowledge integration processes. In many senses, Intra- and Inter-disciplinary Communications are polar opposites. They do not contradict, but complement, each other. Table 1 schematically contrasts characteristics of both kinds of academic communication. Up to the present, the IIIS has been using the format of conversational sessions to support interdisciplinary communications processes. Table 2 schematically contrasts characteristics of both kinds of academic communications. As a second phase, IIIS is starting a process of written interdisciplinary communication via special issues in its journals, short monographs, multiple author books, etc. Multi-disciplinary conferences are organized by the IIIS as support for both intra- and inter-disciplinary communication. Processes of intra-disciplinary communication are mainly achieved via traditional paper presentations in corresponding disciplines, while conversational sessions regarding trans- and interdisciplinary topics are means for inter-disciplinary communications. Intra- and inter-disciplinary communications might generate co-regulative cybernetic loops, via negative feedback, and synergic effects, via positive feedback loops, in which both kinds of communications could increase their respective effectiveness. Figure 1 shows at least two cybernetic loops ...
Loopy indeed.

Forensics 2017

I was not sure what to make of the invitation to "to present your latest research work in the I – International Caparica Conference in Translational Forensics through a 15 minutes slots for advance researchers." The conference slogan looked familiar. It is the second sentence of the U.S. Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." To advance my happiness, it advised me that "As a welcome speaker," I would receive "a reduction of 45% in the conference fee, from 450€ to 250€ in early bird registration phase."

Likewise, the conference website (9/3/17) is not entirely reassuring.
  • It explains that "The I International Caparica Conference in Translational Forensics aims to connect in a transversal way all of us involved in Forensics with the objective of join together as many forensic disciplines as possible."
  • The topics the speakers promise to address are all over the board, from forensic ergonomics to hypothermia (along with a number of talks with titles to be "available soon").
Nevertheless, this wide-ranging conference seems to be an effort of assistant chemistry professors at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Expertise in forensic science might be an issue, but this conference does not seem run by a nefarious or scientifically unqualified group. As such, I would not dismiss it as a fake scientific conference.

BIT's World DNA Day Is Back


BIT won't quit.* Now it wants me "to be the chair/speaker at Theme 5-2: Bio-diagnosis and Biotherapy" of its World DNA Day. Being neither a biologist nor a physician, I am not sure how "presenting about DH Kaye," as the emailer of many names (Audrey, Helen, and Jessica) propose, could "create huge opportunities for the famous coastal City by showcasing the growth and breakthrough of life sciences at a time when so many new therapies and diagnostic evaluations are available." Oh well, here's the first email. I anticipate more.

Re: 3114-Entitled to be Chair/Speakers for WDD-2018, Dalian, China
We are proud to announce that BIT’s 9th Annual World DNA Day (WDD-2018) will be held on April 25-27, 2018 in Dalian, China. We cordially welcome you to be the chair/speaker at Theme 5-2: Bio-diagnosis and Biotherapy while presenting about DH Kaye. ... WDD-2018 will be held in April 25-27, 2018 in Dalian, China, is to follow up the commemoration of the 65th anniversary of the publication of DNA double-helix structure in Nature from April 25, 1953 by Dr. James Watson and Dr. Francis Crick.
WDD, as one of the BIT’s branded conferences, had been successfully organized in Dalian, Xi’an and Nanjing in last eight years. To update the frontiers of life sciences and Industrial Biotechnology, WDD-2018 comes to Dalian City again. We believe worldwide scientists and biotech entrepreneurs in Bioscientific fields will create huge opportunities for the famous coastal City by showcasing the growth and breakthrough of life sciences at a time when so many new therapies and diagnostic evaluations are available.

Saint Peters Engineering College (SPEC)

Saint Peter's Engineering College seems real enough, but its conference marketing leaves something to be desired.  The spam from Hyderabad contains an absurd confidentiality notice, and the conference website (5/22/17) includes the slogan "Giving Wings to Thought" and the observation that "The conference also providing facilities for discussing between various participants to improve their knowledge, research ability and group works/collaboration works." It also includes a picture of a Springer journal, with the caption "Publication Partner" although the connection between the conference and the journal seems to be more aspirational rather than actual -- "About Conference" section explains that "The proceedings of the conference will be submitted to springer journal - Global Social Welfare."

Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST)

Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) may not be in the predatory camp, but it is resorting to spam to advertise itself. It tries to insert the following reply to postings on the Forensic Science, Statistics, and the Law blog:
thank you for your useful information we hope from you to visit our new website Jordan University http://www.ju.edu.jo
This generic reply then gives links to JUST's faculties of medicine, arts, law, business, and science.

I saw only one conference listed on JUST's webpages. The "Second international conference on Advanced Materials: ICAM-2017" may be a bargain. The registration fee of $600 includes accommodation "for 4 nights in 4-star hotel," conference materials, transportation from/to the airport, lunches, dinner, free trips to Jerash and Umm Qais. But the description of the conference itself reads a lot like those from predatory conference organizers. It fills in the template "After the success of the first [name of conference] held in [city name], it was decided to continue the [conference]. The main goal of the conference is to bring together [types of professionals] and to provide a platform for [types of professionals] from all over the world to present their research results and development activities." On the other hand, some bona fide conference organizers use similar language.

We also are told that "All submitted papers will be peer reviewed, and the accepted papers will be published in a special issue of a Scopus Indexed Journal. The journal offers open access to the publications which make the proceedings available to a wider readership." The open-access publisher is not named.

The Invited Speakers webpage (5/16/17) begins, "To be announce later on the conference website" but then lists "Cofirmed Speakers." The US ones are
○ Prof. Dr. Renat Sabirianov, ​University of Nebraska at Omaha
○ Prof. Mark Hernandez, Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering, University of Colorado
○ Prof. Dr. Vinka Oyanedel-Craver, University of Rhode Island
○ Prof. Isabel C. Escobar Ph.D., Professor of Chemical and Materials Engineering, University of Kentucky, and
○ Prof. Dr. Laura Schifman, NRC Associate at U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

European Conference on Science, Art and Culture (ECSAC)

According to the website, this "conference will bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and scholars in the domain of interest from around the world." This domain is more or less anything you can imagine, since it is nothing less than all of "science, art, and culture." But the breathtaking scope of the conference does not preclude a well-organized affair: "The conference will cover important issues in Scientific Research under various sub-themes." As of 5/14/17, there is no program, and there are no speakers and no accepted papers. (Actually, this is an improvement over sites that give a program with speaker names before even checking with the putative speakers.)

The conference venue is "Prague, Czechia at the Vienna House Diplomat Prague Hotel," but "[t]he official languages of the Conference are English and Turkish." The organizer "For Scientific Issues" is "Assist. Prof. Dr. Atilla Atik, atilla@ecsac.org," at "Adress: Inonu University, Faculty of Fine Arts and Design, Department of Landscape Architecture." The "Scientific and Arts Committee" includes (from North America):
Prof. Andrew Kusiak, PhD., The University of Iowa, USA.
Prof. Aris Carastathis, PhD., Lakehead University, CANADA.
Prof. Craig Walker, PhD., Queen’s University, CANADA.
Prof. Guy Boy, PhD., Florida Institute of Technology, USA [who is University Professor & Dean of the School of Human-Centered Design, Innovation and Art at FIT].

Scientific Research Publishing (SCIRP)

SCIRP is a questionable publisher that uses conferences (mostly in China) to supply articles. For example, the website (4/27/17) for the Fifth International Conference on Catalysis explains that "This Conference will cover issues on Catalysis." That's good to know. It also states that
It dedicates to creating a stage for exchanging the latest research results and sharing the advanced research methods. ICC 2017 is held by Engineering Information Institute, sponsored by Scientific Research Publishing and The 1000 Think Tank. This Conference will cover issues and advances on Catalysis. Guilin, 'East or west, Guilin landscape is best!'
The Engineering Information Institute is another (or the same?) Chinese conference organizer. Scientific Research Publishing = SCIRP. The 1000 Think Tank is another Chinese organization. If you can read Mandarin, the About Us page should tell you more.

4/21/17 (from ws_icc@etplaca.com): Dear Colleagues, ICC 2017 will be held from August 23 to 25, 2017 in Guilin, China. This Conference will cover issues on Catalysis.

I am getting several emails a week (as of 3/30/16) for the IET-IEEE-3rd EEECOS Conference. Although papers from "all the fields of Engineering, Science and Technology" can be submitted as late as two weeks before the conference and "authors (outside India) who are unable to attend the conference can also be present the paper through online," they "will be published by IET and also submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library."

As if that were not enough, SASI is advertising (4/6/16) another conference in June. The proposed content is confusing. On the one hand, "[t]he primary goal of the conference is to promote research and developmental activities in Communication, Signal Processing, Power, Intelligent, Embedded System and Data Analytic." On the other, "[p]apers are welcome from all the fields of Engineering, Science and Technology."

Apparently, this "all of science and technology" conference regardless of the name of the conference is SASI's modus operandi. As of 4/29/16, its "International Conference on Electrical, Electronics, Engineering Trends, Communication, Optimization and Sciences (EEECOS/E3COS)-2016," to be held June 1-2, also is open to papers "from all the fields of Engineering, Science and Technology" -- and "authors (outside India) who are unable to attend the conference can also be present the paper through online (video presentation)."

Oxford Round Table

Email of 1/14/16:
Hello. This is a quick reminder that registration and abstract submimssion [sic] will be closing on January 30, 2016 for the 25th International Childhood Education Symposium during the dates of March 13 – March 16, 2016 at Harris Manchester College in the University of Oxford, Oxford, England. Harris Manchester College is one of the thirty-eight colleges that form the University of Oxford and was founded in 1786. We are pleased to invite you to become a member of this Symposium. Membership is limited to approximately thirty-five (35) interdisciplinary scholars who have a particular interest in this subject.
Apparently, it matters not that I have yet to write a word on childhood education -- I still might be one of the "approximately thirty-five (35) interdisciplinary scholars who have a particular interest in this subject" -- and as a "Member[] of the Round Table" I will "have access to ... the Oxford Union Debating Society, colleges and halls of Oxford dating back to 1204, ... and may, on recommendation, become [an] official reader[] of the venerable Bodleian Library of the University, founded by Duke Humphrey circa 1440 ... ." Moreover, my "participation as a member of the Round Table is not contingent upon presenting ... ."

The Oxford Round Table that sponsors these International Round Tables is an American invention (starting in Kentucky) with a history that would impress a corporate reorganization lawyer. At one point, it sued a critic and asked her to "to sign a statement saying that she was 'penitent and ashamed' for making the criticisms" in a Chronicle of Higher Education forum.

Based on your expertise, it will be very delightful to have your research talk at the conference and galvanize the scientific community. ... Regards, Charlene Campbell, Program Manager, Phone +1-702 508 5200, Email: forensicresearch@conferenceseries.net; forensicresearch@pharmaceuticalconferences.org
On February 16 and again on April 1, 2017, Charlene invited me
as a Speaker to attend the "6th International Conference on Forensic Research & Technology" (Forensic Research 2017) to be held in Houston, USA on September 18-20, 2017, which is a globally renowned annual conference. The conference theme for 2017 is “Setting Archetypes in the Global Forensics Realm”
(The full invitation, including two promises of "certification" by nothing less than the conference's own "organizing committee" is at a more general description of OMICS' Conference Series.)

The recognition of my putative expertise extends well beyond my knowledge of forensic science. For example:
Dear Dr.Kaye, David, ... Beneficial Microbes 2016 is specifically premeditated with a unifying axiom providing pulpit to widen the imminent scientific creations. The main theme of the conference is “Exploiting power of Microbes for the Industrial Development ". Submit your abstract at: http://beneficialmicrobes.conferenceseries.com/call-for-abstracts.php. ... Yours Sincerely, Enora Blake, Beneficial Microbes 2016, 2360 Corporate Circle, Suite 400 Henderson, NV 89074-7722, USA, Tel: 1-888-843-8169, beneficialmicrobes@microbiologyconferences.com
Later (7/28/16), I received an unsolicited elevation to the organizing committee in an email entitled "Be a part at our Conference":
Dear Dr. Kaye, David, ... Based on your expertise we would like to honor you by giving the position as an Organizing Committee Member for Beneficial Microbes -2016. Privileges for Organizing Committee: Plenary speech opportunity, ... Promotions for your own labs will be feasible ... Best Regards, Enora Blake [no address this time and the new phone number +1-650-268-9744]
Disclaimer: You are receiving this email because of your eminence in the field of Life Science.
 My eminence was reduced a notch in an email of 9/10/16, which explained how "Inorder to felicitate your eminence you are being invited as our Invited Speaker to the conference. ... Looking forward to hear from you, Best Regards, Enora Blake."

The confernceseries.com website lists an organizing committee of three members as of 9/30/16: Choong-Min Kang, Associate Professor, California State University Stanislaus; Provorov Nikolai, Deputy director, All-Russia Research Institute for Agricultural Microbiology; and Rajesh Sani, Associate Professor, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.

See also this email about a cancer therapy conference out of suite 400. The same strategy is evident in an email of 8/22/16 to "Dear.David H. Kaye , We would like to solicit your gracious presence as a speaker at the upcoming CME Accredited 2nd International Conference on Adolescent Medicine and Child Psychology which is going to be held from October 06-07, 2016 at London, UK."

In August 2016, the FTC charged the OMICS Group, its tentacles (iMedPub LLC and Conference Series LLC), and Managing Director and CEO Srinubabu Gedela, with multiple violations of the FTC Act’s prohibition on deceptive acts or practices.

Institute of Research Engineers and Doctors (IRED)

The website explains (10/12/16) that "IRED is formed to carry on the business of promoting, forming, developing and organizing associations and networks of Chemical, Petroleum, Physics, Biology, Civil, Mechanical, Medical, Dental, Computer, Electronics, Electrical, Management, Biomedical, Bio informatics, Bio Technology, Aeronautical, Textile, Environmental and all related Doctors, Engineers and Professionals who are in the field of innovation ... ." Its "Four Associate Networks to promote the Research and Development activities in the respective Engineering and Technology field" are the "Universal Association of Computer and Electronics Engineers (UACEE), Universal Association of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineers (UAMAE), Universal Association of Civil, Structural And Environmental Engineers (UACSE), Universal Association of Arts And Management Professionals (UAAMP)." Moreover, "IRED welcomes all the Doctors, Scientist, Engineers Professionals, Researchers, Scholars and Medical and Health, Technical Engineering Colleges and Universities to join us to exchange information and ideas; in according with our objective to facilitate this, we call upon to network with us." As of 6/29/17, "[t]he IRED organization has been inspiring many talents to come forward ... ."

To give the impression that it is a US firm, IRED uses the address of "42 Broadway, Suite 12-217, New York,  NY 10004, USA" for its headquarters. This appears to be "virtual office space" provided by TKO Suites, which supplies a "personal business address [to] make your home business more authentic." Its true location and owners are hidden. The domain name (theired.org) is registered by Whois Privacy Protection Service, Inc. The emails come from "Anna Karlova, 12 Burkswerk, New York, New York, 10004, United States, www.conferencealertonline.com." No such address exists (in Google Maps). Whoever runs this virtual marketing site registered it via GoDaddy's Domains By Proxy.

The only "theme" of these conferences is "to bring together" is to bring together as many experts from as many technical fields as the unknown organizers can attract "to a common forum."

Global Science and Technology Forum

The "Call for Papers: 5th Annual International Conference on Law, Regulations and Public Policy (LRPP 2016)" cannot be beat for breadth of coverage in law:
The laws of the land lay the foundations of peace and order, and to ensure people progress in all aspects of their lives – whether in business, education, travel, health or recreation. The role of public officials is to create, scrutinize, implement and uphold the laws in order to protect the rights of every individual, corporate entity or institution.
The organization behind this conference is the Global Science and Technology Forum, a group from Singapore that has been accused of "conference hijacking." GSTF is "a proud partner of 38 Universities around the globe." (The links of the batch that I clicked on lead only to the home pages of the named institutions.) It publishes a slew of "science journals" on such subjects as general philosophy, music, media and communications, education, and business. Not surprisingly, it is on Beall's List as "an exploitative publisher that ... everyone should avoid."

The chairman of the conference is "Prof. the Hon. Dr. Stephen Martin, Chairman, Board of Governors, Global Science & Technology Forum (GSTF). Chief Executive, Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA), Chairman, Bank of China (Australia), Former Speaker Parliament of Australia, Former Deputy Vice Chancellor (Strategy and Planning) Curtin University of Technology, and Former Pro Vice Chancellor International, Victoria University." Keynote speakers are Professors Julien Chaisse and Chao Xi of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

As the emails below indicate, GSTF continues to troll for presenters to pay for annual reruns of the conference.
Email
  • The LRPP17 conference email advertisement (same description) features as keynote speakers
    ⊗ Dr. Paul Babie, Personal Chair of Law in the Adelaide Law School, The University of Adelaide, Australia, and
    ⊗ Dr. Gabriel Moens, Professor of Law, Curtin Law School, Australia.
    An updated (9/21/16) email extends the predominantly Australian theme with the following program committee members:
    ⊗ Dr. Tom Mortimer, Head, Anglia Law School, Anglia Ruskin University, UK;
    ⊗ Prof. Paula Baron, Head of School, Chair of the Common Law, La Trobe University, Australia;
    ⊗ Prof. Willem de Lint, Professor, School of Law, Flinders University, Australia;
    ⊗ Prof. Jianfu Chen, Professor, Faculty of Law and Management, La Trobe University, Australia;
    ⊗ Prof. Christoph Antons, School of Law, Deakin University, Australia;
    ⊗ Prof. Denise Meyerson, Macquarie Law School, Sydney, Australia.
    As of 10/10/16, when I received a third email, the program committee on the web swelled to 44 members, with 29 from India alone. Prof. Bradley Myers, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, University of North Dakota, and Dr. Anqi Shen, a reader at the School of Social Sciences and Law, Teesside University, UK, apparently joined the program committee.
