Dear Colleagues:

I would be most grateful if you would distribute this announcement for
the 2001 International MultiConference to your colleagues who might be
interested. This will be a major international gathering in year
2001. It is anticipated that this international event will attract
about 1500 participants. This MultiConference is composed of five
(planned and more will likely be added) international conferences that
will be held simultaneously (same dates and location). Attendees will
have full access to all five+ conferences. You are invited to submit
a draft paper of about 4 to 5 pages and/or a proposal to organize a
technical session. All accepted papers will be published in the
respective conference proceedings. THE NAMES OF TECHNICAL SESSION

            Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies
            of their draft paper (about 4 to 5 pages) to H. R. Arabnia
            (address is given below) by the due date (who will be
            forwarding the papers to respective conference chair).
            E-mail and Fax submissions are also acceptable. The length
            of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to
            7 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,
            E-mail address, telephone number, and Fax number for
            each author. The first page should also include the
            name of the author who will be presenting the paper
            (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords. Also state
            the name of the conference you would like your paper
            to be considered for.


            Each technical session will have at least 6 paper
            presentations. The session chairs will be responsible
            for all aspects of their sessions; including, soliciting
            papers, reviewing, selecting, ... The names of session
            chairs will appear as Associate Editors in the conference
            proceedings. After the conference, some sessions will
            be considered for publication in appropriate journals as
            Special Issues with the session proposer as the Guest
            Editor of the journal.

            Proposals to organize technical sessions should include
            the following information: name and address (+ E-mail)
            of proposer, title of session, a 100-word description of
            the topic of the session, and a short description on
            how the session will be advertised (in most cases,
            session proposers solicit papers from colleagues and
            researchers whose work is known to the session proposer).
            Mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia (address is given
            below); E-mail submissions are preferred.

            Contact H. R. Arabnia, if you would like to organize
            international workshops.


            Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
            clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by
            two researchers in the topical area. The Camera-Ready
            papers will be reviewed by one person.


            The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA
            Press (ISBN) in hardcopy. The proceedings will be
            available at the conferences site. Some accepted papers
            will also be considered for journal publication (soon
            after the conferences). (In addition to the hardcopy,
            it is also planned to publish the papers on a CD.)


            A number of university faculty members and their staff
            in cooperation with the Monte Carlo Resort (Conference
            Division, Las Vegas ), will be organizing the conferences.
            The conferences will be co-sponsored by Computer Science
            Research, Education, & Applications Press (CSREA: USA
            Federal EIN # 58-2171953) together with research centers,
            international associations, international research groups,
            and developers of high-performance machines and systems.
            The complete list of sponsors and co-sponsors will be
            available at a later time.
            (Previous conferences' sponsors included: CSREA,
            the National Supercomputing Center for Energy and the
            Environment - DOE, The International Association for
            Mathematics and Computers in Simulation, The International
            Technology Institute (ITI), The Java High Performance
            Computing research group, World Scientific and Engineering
            Society, Sundance Digitial Signal Processing Inc., the
            Computer Vision Research and Applications Tech., ...)


            The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort
            hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This is a mega hotel
            with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms.
            The hotel is minutes from the Las Vegas airport with free
            shuttles to and from the airport. This hotel has many
            vacation and recreational attractions, including:
            waterfalls, casino, spa, pools & kiddie pools, sunning
            decks, Easy River water ride, wave pool with cascades,
            lighted tennis courts, health spa (with workout equipment,
            whirlpool, sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality game rooms,
            nightly shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants,
            shopping area, bars, ... Many of these attractions are
            open 24 hours a day and most are suitable for families and
            children. The negotiated hotel's room rate for conference
            attendees is very reasonable (79USD + tax) per night (no
            extra charge for double occupancy) for the duration of
            the conference.

            The hotel is within walking distance from most other
            Las Vegas attractions (major shopping areas, recreational
            destinations, fine dining and night clubs, free street
            shows, ...).
            For the benefit of our international colleagues: the
            state of Nevada neighbors with the states of California,
            Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Arizona. Las Vegas is only a
            few driving hours away from other major cities, including:
            Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Grand Canyon, ...


            An exhibition is planned for the duration of the conferences.
            We have reserved 20+ exhibit spaces. Interested parties
            should contact H. R. Arabnia (address is given below).
            All exhibitors will be considered to be the co-sponsors
            of the conferences.


                March 1, 2001 (Thursday): Draft papers (about 4 to 5 pages) due
                April 2, 2001 (Monday): Notification of acceptance
                May 1, 2001 (Tuesday): Camera-Ready papers & Prereg. due
                June 25 - 28, 2001: PDPTA'2001 + CISST'2001 + IC-AI'2001 +
                                                                      IC'2001 + METMBS'2001 Conferences

            Proposals to organize technical sessions should be submitted
            as soon as possible. All accepted papers are expected to be
            presented at the conference.

            The Program Committees are currently being formed. Those
            interested in joining the Program Committees should email
            H. R. Arabnia ( the following information:
            Name, affiliation and position, complete mailing address,
            email address, tel/fax numbers, a short biography
            together with research interests.


            It is planned to add other related conferences and
            workshops to be held simultaneously (same location and
            dates). Each conference will have it's own proceedings and
            technical/research sessions.
