EBISS2009 organizers removed two papers from the conference program

Apparently, somebody in the EBISS2009 conference committee is a frequent reader of the Schlangemann Blog. Today I found the following note on the conference website:

Special Announcement
作者: 发布时间:2009-01-26 10:42:02
The EBISS organizing committee has become aware of two accepted papers that were not fit for publication due to the reviewers inexperience. The identified papers were removed from the proceedings and the authors were notified. We have strengthened our paper reviewing process to ensure the paper quality, and prevent any similar incidents in the future. We would like to express our deepest apology for any inconvenience we might have caused you. We wish you a happy Chinese New Year. For any further inquiry, please send us an email to conference organizer or visit the EBISS blog.

If Herbert Schlangemann's paper was one of the two "identified" papers, which is the other one?

    Were you notified? Why don't you show us their letter.

  3. I wonder what would have happened if you never went to slashdot....

    Didn't show up for the conference (they needed to scramble to find a new chair) etc.

    With two articles in Xplore, the tentacles of Dr Herbert Schlangemann might have proved too deep for them to simply remove....

  4. I thought they called it "Spring Festival" these days in China. I mean, if they called it "Chinese New Year" it would be like us calling our new year "American New Year."
