Une fausse conference en informatique ?

Le message suivant est analogue à un message recu l'an dernier a propos d'une soit-disant conference SCI'04 (pour systemics, cybernetics, informatics). L'institut s'appelait alors IIIS. Une precedente edition, SCI'02 est discutee sur la page: SCI conference on Systemics.

L'INTERNIC indique que l'IIIS (addresse au Venezuela) a effectivement depose le nom de domaine infocybernetics.org. Le nom iiis.org est depose par Callaos & Associates Co., basee a Orlando, FL.

Voir egalement la page de SCIgen, celle d'Anthony Likens sur WMSCI, un article dans Popular Science un autre du Guardian et Cybernetic Text.

Dans un genre semblable, il y a aussi cet appel a contribution pour une serie de livres par NOVA.
