My post on Nagib Callaos' response to SCIgen has attracted a ridiculous number of comments and lots of links, including (thanks Jeremy!) a link from the SCIgen web page. Thanks to everyone for commenting, linking, or just dropping by.
But the best comment so far came from my mom, who quietly forwarded an email she received yesterday. Even with the broadest possible definition of multi-displinary computing research, it's hard to imagine that she's their intended audience. Mom paints portraits for a living. With actual paint.

All IPSI BgD conferences are non-profit. They bring together the elite of the world science; so far, we have had seven Nobel Laureates speaking at the opening ceremonies. The conferences always take place in some of the most attractive places of the world. All those who come to IPSI conferences once, always love to come back (because of the unique professional quality and the extremely creative atmosphere); lists of past participants are on the web, as well as details of future conferences.
These conferences are in line with the newest recommendations of the US National Science Foundation and of the EU research sponsoring agencies, to stress multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary research (M+I+T++ research). The speakers and activities at the conferences truly support this type of scientific interaction.
One of the main topics of this conference is "E-education and E-business with Special Emphasis on Semantic Web and Web Datamining"
Other topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Computer Science and Engineering
* Mobile Communications/Computing for Science and Business
* Management and Business Administration
* e-Oriented Bio Engineering/Science and Molecular Engineering/Science
* Environmental Protection
* Technology Based Art and Art to Inspire Technology Developments
* Internet Psychology
If you would like more information on either conference, please reply to this e-mail message.
If you plan to submit an abstract and paper, please let us know immediately for planning purposes. Note that you can submit your paper also to the IPSI Transactions journal.
