Three graduate students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology questioned the standards of some academic conferences.<br>So they wrote a computer program to generate research papers, a bunch of computer-generated gibberish masquerading as an academic papers. <br>They submitted it to to the World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (WMSCI), scheduled to be held July 10-13 in Orlando.<br> To their surprise one of their papers was accepted for presentation.<br>LINKY<br><br>
Hummmm<br><br>[color:blue]Nagib Callaos, a conference organizer, said the paper was one of a small number accepted on a "non-reviewed" basis -- meaning that reviewers had not yet given their feedback by the acceptance deadline.</font color=blue><br><br>This could still blow up in the pranksters faces.<br>If I was the Organizer of that conference I would hold that paper up and say that this is NOT the kind of works that is acceptable - sorta make a spectacle of whats bad and use them as an example. shame shame.<br><br>Then go on to quietly abolish that "non-reviewed" basis. IMHO<br><br>
