I remember an online discussion about the characteristics of predatory conferences and journals. Some people argued that it's virtually impossible to be sure.

That may be in the general case, but who cares? One looks at each conference or journal in turn.

Here's another example where there's ZERO doubt.


How do I know?

  1. The conference is on a subject about which I know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
  2. Yet they seem to think I have relevant "expertise" and "contributions in the field."
  3. It's in a touristy spot notorious for hosting scam conferences.
  4. The domain owners own madridge.com, .net, and .org.
  5. Madridge Publishers are on Beall's List (which may be gone but is certainly not forgotten).
I sent them my usual vulgar reply, and have created a filter to delete all email from @madridge.net in the future.
