Dear colleagues.

I have recently been inundated with strange requests to submit articles to journals on topics that have no possible connection to my research, or to present invited papers at technical conferences in fields that are unrelated to mine.  I have included a single example below. Have any of you received similar solicitations? It seems pretty obvious this is part of a scam, but I am curious about the motivation for it. Do they expect to make money off of page charges?
