Fake paper accepted
Following up on Claudio Lima's nice post on SCIgen, the fake paper generator, apparently the World Multi-Conference on Systems, Cybernetics, and Informatics accepted a randomly generated SCIgen paper on a "non-reviewed" basis. The paper has been returned to the hoax team, but they are now seeking (see here) a volunteer with an accepted paper at the conference in the hopes that the hoax team can present a completely random presentation at the conference. WMCSI was a target of the hoax, because its spam and acceptance policies are both notoriously indiscriminate.
