Quoting shenoyvarun86:  “3 intelligent chaps submitted a paper to the ninth annual Florida-based World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (WMSCI). The paper was generated randomly in a software they created (called SCIgen) . All this because the folks at WMSCI spammed students constantly seeking paper submissions and entry fees”
