  • I am very disturbed by the fact that “call for papers” have always predetermined subjects by organizers and higher up within the hierarchy. It would have been much more beneficial for IEEE to let members chose subjects on particular area of interest and concerns.

    The other disturbing matter on this particular “call for papers” is, that the this call itself is addressed to “researchers, educators, managers, and students”. The question arises, what happened with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers?
