Summary:

This blog post describes how OMICS Group organizes multiple conferences at the same time in the same hotel and how OMICS names their conferences with names very similar to longstanding, authentic conferences. Also, OMICS adds scholars' names to its conference organizing committees without their permission. OMICS uses multiple forms of deceit, trickery, and confidence schemes to get scholars to register for its conferences.
