Call for Papers From: International Association of Engineers (http://www.iaeng.org) Journal Engineering Letters (http://www.engineeringletters.com) The 2006 IAENG International Conference on Mathematical, Statistical and Computer Methods in HIV/AIDS 2006 (Part of The International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists IMECS 2006) IMECS 2006: 20-22 June, 2006, Hong Kong http://www.iaeng.org/IMECS2006/ICMHA2006.html Considering that a large number of people in any community do not know that they are HIV positive, and consequently, that the HIV prevalence estimates in any country are usually unreliable, the purpose of this Conference is to bring together researchers from all over the world to discuss methods for accurate estimates and future predictions of HIV/AIDS incidence and prevalence in different parts of the world. While papers (both research papers and discussion papers) from all parts of the world are very welcome, those discussing hiv prevalence in Africa, all parts of Asia, and in Eastern Europe and in Russia should add a very desirable breadth to the conference. All papers discussing these issues through Mathematical, Statistical, Computer, Survey and any other methods will be welcome. The ICMHA'06 conference is held as part of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2006. The IMECS 2006 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), and serves as good platforms for the engineering community members to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. Extended version of the papers under this workshop can be included in the special issue of our journal Engineering Letters. And, further extended version can also be included in a book called "Current Trends in Mathematical, Statistical and Computer Methods in HIV/AIDS 2006" to be published by IAENG. The IMECS 2006 multiconference has the focus on the frontier topics in the theoretical and applied engineering and computer science subjects. It consists of 14 workshops (see the details at IMECS website: www.iaeng.org/IMECS2006). The multiconference serves as good platforms for the engineering community members of different disciplines to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. The current conference committee of the IMECS 2006 includes over 150 workshop co-chairs and committee members of mainly research center heads, department heads, professors, research scientists from over 20 countries, while a few of the committee members are also experienced software development directors and engineers. All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN: 988-98671-3-3). The abstracts will be indexed and available at major academic databases. The Technology Research Databases (TRD) of CSA (Cambridge Scientific Abstracts), DBLP and Computer Science Bibliographies have promised to index the print proceeding in advance of its publication. And after the publication of the proceeding, print copies will also be sent to databases like IEE INSPEC, Engineering Index (EI) and ISI Thomson Scientific for indexing. The accepted papers will also be considered for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering Letters. Some participants may also be invited to submit extended version of their conference papers for considering as book chapters (soon after the conference). ========= Submission: Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper in abstract format (one page) or in full paper format to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 March, 2006. The submitted file can be in MS Word format, PS format, or PDF formats. The first page of the draft paper should include: ¡P Title of the paper; ¡P Name, affiliation and e-mail address for each author; ¡P A maximum of 5 keywords of the paper; Also, the name of the workshop session that the paper is being submitted to should be stated in the email. ============= Important Dates: Proposals for special conference sessions and tutorials deadline: 30 December, 2005 Draft Manuscript / Abstract submission deadline: 12 March, 2006 Camera-Ready papers & Pre-registration due: 2 April, 2006 IMECS 2006: 20-22 June, 2006 More details about the ICMHA 2006 can be found at: http://www.iaeng.org/IMECS2006/ICMHA2006.html ICMHA Conference Chair and Committee Members: Prof. B. D. Aggarwala (Chair) Professor Emeritus Department of Mathematics and Statistics University of Calgary, Canada Jiunn-Lin Wu Assistant Professor, Dept. of Computer Science, National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan ******** It will be highly appreciated if you can circulate these calls for papers to your colleagues.
