Asia in Dubai: The Asian Conference on Science, Technology & Medicine

The Asian Conference on Science, Technology & Medicine (ACSTM) is an annual production of the United Arab Emirates' Asian Council of Science Editors (ACSE). On Facebook, ACSE presents itself as "the voice of Asia." The officers and directors of the organization are from Egypt, India, UAE, Croatia, UAE, UK, USA, and Bangladesh. Relevant domains are registered to the Instra Corporation Pty Ltd in Dubai. The website's About Us page explains that "[t]he ACSE is the first and the foremost organization in Asia, that aims to provide a unified and active platform for Asian editors and scholars to understand about their editorial problems, explore solutions and devotedly take up the future challenges to enhance the quality of Asian Scientific and Scholarly publications."

The "photographic memories" page of the ACSTM website indicates that the now-Asian conference used to be the "World Conference on Science, Technology & Medicine." It also mentions that Medwin Publications is involved. (A Medwin journal contacted me as one of the "eminent scientists, who have significant involvement in the advancement of research" in vaccines; in response to my offer of "a paper reporting that I still got some colds after being vaccinated against the flu," Medwin urged me to submit the valuable manuscript.)

Meetings International, where "measurable researchers head out"

The About Us page (5/19/18) for Meetings International promises to teach you "to be even more audacious and bold than you are now and free to grow your mind, grow your business, and grow your bottom-line." The domain Meetingsint.com also is now hidden by a proxy registrant, but in 2017, it was registered to Srinubabu Gedela, Meetings International Pte Ltd, 28 Bukit Pasoh Road, , Yee Lan Court, Singapore. In orher words, it is yet another way to suck people into paying for Omics events. It seems to have taken over the marketing of the International Conference on Forensic Research & Technology from the Omics front, Conference Series.
 
Just to see who might answer (on 7/11/18), I called the first two numbers on the spam from Forensic Research Conference. The "main theme of the conference is: 'Every Contact Leaves a Trace,'" but these traces produced no contacts. The first number was not intelligible to Google Voice. The second forwarded the call to a different number with no one present and a mailbox that was not working.

The hyperlink in the spam goes to a website for a later conference in Japan rather than the one advertised in Australia. But never fear, the site discusses the Australian market for forensic-science products. The "Scientific Program" tab produces the unedifying response "No pdf." The description of the "Scientific Sessions" (none seem to be scheduled yet) is painful:
Forensic science is that provision for science to criminal and common laws, basically on the criminal side throughout criminal investigation, likewise legislated toward those lawful norms about permissible proof and criminal technique. Measurable researchers collect, preserve, furthermore investigate experimental proof throughout that course about an examination. Same time a few measurable researchers head out to those scenes of the wrongdoing to gather information the proof themselves, others possess a research Centre role, and performing dissection once Questions brought should them toward different people.
The next day's spam advertised the conference in Japan.

The International Conference on Computer Science and Information Engineering (ICCSIE) and the IAAST

I don’t know how to classify the International Conference on Computer Science and Information Engineering (ICCSIE). It is obviously Chinese, but who is really behind it? The domains on the emails and websites are ia-ast.org and iaaset.org. These are registered to “Zheng Zhou Jun Jian Jiao Yu Zi Xun You Xian Gong Si [in] he nan” and “Wang Yan Dong [in] He Nan,” respectively.

The first conference was advertised for 2015, in Ningbo. The contact information was sparse: “Conference Secretary: Miss Zhang, Tel:+86-371-55656603, Email: iccsieconf@163.com.” The second, for 2017, listed “Conference secretary: Echo Liu, TEL: 86-371-6336 9863, E-mail: iccsieconf@163.com.” The third and current conference web site lists “Conference Secretary: Linda You, Tel:+ 86-371-6336 9863, Email: iccsieconf@163.com.”

The one common “organizer” of these three conference is the International Association of Applied Science and Engineering Technology (IAASET). The website states (6/11/18) that the association’s mission “is to foster and conduct collaborative interdisciplinary research in state-of-the-art methodologies and technologies within its areas of expertise.” There is no indication of how it conducts research or what research it has conducted. Instead, it runs conferences in Asia based on the belief that “International academic conference is an important way of academic exchanges for people from academic fields around the whole world.” The website lists a “Committee” of academics, mostly from Taiwan. Although no member is from the mainland, its domain name (aiase.net) is registered to an unnamed person or entity in Hangzhou. The address on the website is RM18H, 27/F Ho King Comm Ctr, 2-16 Fayuen St, Mongkok Kowloon Hong Kong.

CORRECTION (8/7/18 ): IAASET is not the common organizer.

The honor falls to a more elusive International Association of Applied Science and Technology (IAAST). The conference website states that "ICCSIE2018 is organized by Beijing University of Technology and International Association of Applied Science and Technology (IAAST)." The university, Beigongda for short, is real enough, but what exactly is its role in this conference in Xi'an?

IAAST name appears in connection with another university, the Shanghai Maritime University, promoting another conference during the same month. The 2018 International Conference of Computing and System Engineering in Marine Engineering (ICCSEM2018) is slated to start just over two weeks from now, in Zhengzhou. This IAAST conference has no speakers and no meaningful program posted as of today. It has no organizing committee -- only an "Honorary Chairman." The email address and telephone number in the contact information are identical to those for the 3rd International Conference on Computer Science and Information Engineering (ICCSIE2018). The "Conference Secretary" has the same name -- Linda You.

You are an internationally acclaimed scholar and educator. Your participation will be among the highlights of the Conference. We sincerely hope that you could accept our invitation.
    ICCSIE2018 is an annual conference that provides a forum for accessing to the most up-to-date and authoritative knowledge from both industrial and academic worlds, sharing best practice in the field of Computer Engineering, Information Engineering, Computer Architecture & Embedded System, Mobile Computing & Pervasive Computing, Software Engineering, and Digital Signal Processing. Your participation at ICCSIE2018 would add great value for your organization and our attendees. [← Judging from my selection, the great value does not come from any expertise in these fields.]

Biocore's conferences put "all the eminent personalities in one lane"

Biocore is on Beall's list. and it not hard to see why. Just look at the website for BioCore Conferences:
⊘ "Biocore motto is to give the human era with better future."
⊘ "Biocore is going to conduct Scientific Conferences in near future for grouping all the eminent personalities in one lane."
⊘ "Biocore is a global open access publisher and scientific conferences organizer ... formed solely for exploring the scientific community with a good understanding of the different scientific achievements with a single click from any part of the world."
⊘ "Biocore has been involved the knowledge on Science & technology to the access way of every individual."
All the conferences advertised on the home page (5/16/18) are in Dubai. From an apartment in Richmond, Virginia, "Biocore group publishes 100+ Open Access Journals with over 10,000 renowned persons."

OAHost and Collaborative Conferences (CC)

Having been spammed by General Secretary Mavis Ma about a "Collaborative Conference" managed by OAHost, I looked for more information. The Collaborative Conferences website (http://2conf.org/Europe/, 2/8/18) explains that
The Collaborative Conferences (CC) is a series of seminars held to gather scientists, intellectuals and researchers of a same study field from across the world to communicate, share and exchange their knowledge or new findings on a given topic.
"OAHOST [is] a conference management platform by scientists and for scientists." No addresses are provided, but the domain 2conf.org is registered to
Zhiming Wang
OAHOST, 1550 Fort Bend Road #3001, Katy, Texas 77494
Phone: +1.8322601660
Email: zhmwang@gmail.com
So are the Collaborative Conferences domain names bmeeting.org, cc3l.org, ccmst.org, emnfall.org, enmeeting.org, icssci.org, mathmeeting.org, and phmeeting.org (although the registered email addresses is emngeneral@outlook.com). The address is for a luxury apartment in the Grand Villas Apartments.

Some positive reports about EMN meetings are interspersed among more skeptical responses at https://www.researchgate.net/post/Does_anyone_have_opinions_on_EMN_meetings and https://www.researchgate.net/post/EMN_Conference_Bogus_Conference_or_Real_Event. But who knows which of the respondents are for real?

I sent an email under the name Mountebank (meaning charlatan), proposing a talk on "Solving the New York Stock Exchange Paradox with Probability Real Lie Algebras and the Ricci Flower Equation" for the 2018 Mathematics Series. There is no New York Stock Exchange Paradox, no Probability Real Lie Algebras, and no Ricci Flower Equation. But, hey, no problem -- I can deliver a 25-minute talk as long as I pay "a Poster Rate($548) as an invited speaker."

    Thank you very much for your reply. Our Mathematics meeting is an invitation based social gathering event without outside financial support and therefore it is impossible for us to cover all the invited speakers conference costs. However, the conference doesn't aim for financial profit either and the conference committees could consider to offer a maximum discount on the registration fee up to a Poster Rate($548) as an invited speaker. The time slot is 25 minutes for invited speaker. Please let me know if you can accept our invitation under this condition. Thanks!
