The WCE 2009 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), a non-profit international association for the engineers and the computer scientists. The conference has the focus on the frontier topics in the theoretical and applied engineering and computer science subjects. The WCE conferences serve as good platforms for our members and the entire engineering community to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. The last 2008 congress has attracted more than seven hundred participants from over 30 countries.

The summary of submissions and accepted papers in WCE 2009 is as followed:
Total number of submissions received in WCE 2009: 869
Total number of papers that have been accepted for WCE 2009: 493 (Acceptance rate: 56.73%)

The titles and contact authors of submitted papers that have been reviewed and accepted papers (or accepted with minor revisions) for WCE 2009 are listed here:
