Интересное приглашение пришло на виртуальную конференцию — рассылается авторам, которые участвовали на традиционных конфернциях по близким темам.
Видимо число таких онлайновых, виртуальных заочных конференций будет расти, особенно в период кризиса
Announcement: Virtual Participation in CITSA 2009 is Now Possible
Deadlines for Virtual Participation in The 6th International Conference on Cybernetics and Information Technologies, Systems and Applications: CITSA 2009 (http://www.ICTconfer.org/citsa) (Orlando, Florida, USA. July 10th-13th, 2009)
Extended Abstracts submissions and Invited Virtual Sessions proposals: May 6th, 2009
Authors notifications: June 1st, 2009
Camera ready, full papers: June 22nd, 2009
Submissions made for Virtual Participation will go trough the same reviewing processes of the regular papers (double-blind, non-blind, and participative peer reviewing) and, if accepted (according to the same acceptance policy), they will be included in the proceedings and will be eligible for journal publication if they are, according to their reviewers, among the best 10%-20% of those physically and virtually presented at the conference.
Each regular session, included in the conference program, will be associated to a corresponding virtual session where all final versions of the articles to be presented will be displayed and authors can comment them via electronic forums. Registered authors of virtual participations will have access to all conference program sessions via their respective associated virtual sessions. Their article will be displayed like the regular ones. Virtual authors also have the option of sending, besides the final version of their article in a PDF document, an electronic presentation (PowerPoint, flash, etc. and/or a 15–20 minutes video).
After paying the respective shipping and handling costs, registered authors of virtual participation, who paid their registration fee, can get delivered the same conference material that the regular attendees receive at the registration desk.
Authors of accepted papers who registered in the conference will have access to the reviews made to their submission so they can accordingly improve the final version of their papers. Non-registered authors may not have access to the reviews of their respective submissions.
Awards will be granted to the best paper of those presented at each session. From these sessions' best papers, the best 10%-20% of the papers presented at the conference will be selected for their publication in Volume 7 of JSCI Journal (http://www.j-sci.com/Journal/SCI/). Libraries of journal authors' organizations will receive complimentary subscriptions of at least one volume (6 issues).
