IEEE Computer Society seems to have a serious problem

Dear IEEE,
since Herbert Schlangemann published an award-winning paper at the CSSE conference in December 2008, he is an expert in all areas of science. That is what the organizers of the "3rd International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (iCBBE 2009)" might have thought when they asked Dr. Schlangemann to review several papers for their conference.
And they did not only ask Herbert Schlangemann, but they wrote emails to Mr. "Die Himmel ist schön" and Dr. "Liu Laoshi". For those of you who don't know about these outstanding researchers, they were named during the submission of "Towards the Simulation of E-Commerce" as potential reviewer and found their way to a reviewer list.

"Dear Die Himmel Ist Schoen:
The 3rd International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (iCBBE 2009) will be held on June 11-13, 2009 in Beijin, China. The paper review process has been started, and we cordially invite you to review some of the manuscripts. [...]"

Is this your regular way of selecting reviewers for your conferences? Remember, you call yourself "The world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology". How could somebody like Mr. "Die Himmel ist schön" possibly do a review for an IEEE supported conference?

We just want to give you the opportunity to read one of the masterpieces we've received for review. For those of you who don't believe us, this "paper" was really submitted to the iCBBE2009 conference with the intention of being published in the IEEEXplore database. Please apologize if we offer it online and violate your copyright regulations, but there was no note for the reviewer to keep it confidential.

Title: DIAGNOSTIC TESTS OF FACIAL PORTRAITS BY CCD CAMERA.

Abstract: AIM: To prove the individual discrimination by facial portraits seems to be well practicable by using CCD camera. OBJECTIVES: At daily clinical diagnostics test, it is very important to judge whose each specimen it is.Incase of performing individual discrimination of specimens,we can think that it is good to photograph faces in order to discriminate individuals of test subjects.So just by investigating the changes by making facial portraits by photographing faces with CCDcamera,by discriminating individuals and by including simple photographing systems in personal computers to determine wheather individual discrimination of judged specimens succeeds to be practicable. METHODS: It can be performed by joining CCD camera with personal computers,through softwares that took in portraits,by taking in portraits,by adjusting shades of portraits to signals,then by dividing it in two kinds,.By letting indicate that 1.shadowy directions were ¡°1¡±. 2.Light direction were ¡°0¡±. Then by forming a line of both ¡°0¡± and ¡°1¡± and by including systems that express facial portraits by both ¡°0¡± and ¡°1¡± in personal computers. RESULT: As a results of expressing the man¡¯s facial portraits by shades of both ¡°0¡± and ¡°1¡±,man¡¯s facial portraits formed a line of shades of both ¡°0¡± and ¡°1¡± and at the both the same man and the same position,in comparing the first time with the second time,coincided almost closely.But when photographing position changed,somewhat slipped out rows of both ¡°0¡± and ¡°1¡±And when man changed as well,somewhat slipped out rows of both ¡°0¡± and ¡°1¡±. CONCLUSION: By using CCD camera,individual discrimination by facial portraits seems to be well practicable.Therefore by using cellular phones as well,individual discrimination seems to be well practicable.At clinical diagnostic tests,if we introduce these CCD camera,ondividual discrimination of specimens seems to be effectively practicableby using that of this facial portraits."


It seems that none of the organizing committee members has ever opened the document before sending it to the reviewer. Since we have a significant number of papers for review, we keep the names and titles confidential. We suggest you, dear IEEE, to stop the support of all HighSci, ICBBE, IARIA and so forth conferences and to remove all such papers from the IEEEXplore database which have been published before.

To avoid a sudden removal of the conference organizing committee from the website (we know you like to do that), here you go:
