New Journal with Clunky Name
It seems every week I get an announcement for a new journal. This week it's Journal for Algebra and Number Theory Academia, which gets my nomination for the Clunkiest New Journal Title of 2010.

It sys its published bi-monthly. You can guess my next question.
My nomination for the Clunkiest Conference Title is the 5th International Conference on Humanoid, Nanotechnology, Information Technology, Communication and Control, Environment, and Management 2011. It actually started in 2003 as the first Humanoid, Nanotechnology, Information and Communication Technology, Environment and Management Conference, but I suppose they thought the original name wasn't clunky enough.
Lets form a Society for Algebra and Number Theory Academia!
You're probably working out that acronym.
Oh, man. I thought the clunkiest journal title was "Journal of Signal Processing Systems for Signal, Image, and Video Technology". If only they'd slapped on the "Academia" at the end.
To Jeff Orchard: maybe a better title would be "Journal of Redundant Signal Processing Systems for Signal, Image, and Video Redundancy." (Note that "redundant signal processing" has over 50000 exact phrase matches on Google, so it might be such a silly name after all.)
