More Attacks on SCI

To follow up on Ernie's post about the perfect SCI submission, here's a website that will automatically generate random papers in computer science, with graphs and all ! Developed by Jeremy Stribling, Max Krohn, and Dan Aguayo, all graduate students at MIT, the website was "tested" by submitting a paper to SCI. Here's the abstract:
Many physicists would agree that, had it not been for congestion control, the evaluation of web browsers might never have occurred. In fact, few hackers worldwide would disagree with the essential unification of voice-over-IP and public-private key pair. In order to solve this riddle, we confirm that SMPs can be made stochastic, cacheable, and interposable.
The paper was accepted ! As an aside, their 'acceptance notification' provides a novel solution to the problem of reviewer loads at conferences (FOCS commitee, are you reading this ?):
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to inform you
that, up to the present, we have not received any reviews yet for you
paper entitled: "Rooter: A Methodology for the Typical Unification of
Access Points and Redundancy". So, your paper has been accepted, as a
non-reviewed paper, for presentation at the 9th World Multiconference
on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (WMSCI 2005) to be held in
Orlando, USA, on July 10-13, 2005.

The authors are looking for funding to attend SCI in Florida, where they plan to present a randomly-generated talk. Donate generously :)

  1. This is *so* wrong. I wonder... did "the perfect paper" get accepted?

  2. People have done similar things with SCI before. Well, almost similar.
