The IASTED African Conference on Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications (AfricaIMSA 2010) will be an opportunity for international research scientists, engineers, and practitioners to present their latest research, ideas, developments, and applications in these fields. AfricaIMSA 2010 will include keynote addresses, papers, and tutorials on a wide range of topics.

AfricaIMSA 2010 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Web-based Education (WBE 2010)
* Advances in Computer Science and Engineering (ACSE 2010)


To the north—the austere beauty of the desert; to the south—the glittering expanse of the Red Sea; visit Sharm el Sheikh and see why this town has been dubbed “The City of Peace.” Resting on the southern tip of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, this calm town of 28,000 offers leisure activities to suit your every need. Relax on the golf course or on the soft sand beaches of Na’ama Bay, or plunge into Sharm el Sheikh’s spectacular warm-water diving and snorkeling, known to be some of the best in the world. But don’t despair if you don’t want to get wet; a glass-bottomed boat ride will let you experience the Red Sea’s stunning coral reef without an oxygen tank or flippers. Sharm el Sheikh also offers an impressive range of restaurants, where you can sample everything from local Egyptian cuisine, to fresh seafood, to the dishes of well-known international chain restaurants. More than a tourist town, Sharm el Sheikh is only a short trip from Mount Sinai’s historic St. Catherine’s Monastery, built in the 4th century on what is believed to be the site of the Biblical burning bush. Visit one of the local nature preserves and explore the indigenous wildlife, or hike through an ancient gorge. Back in town, shop for everything from the latest contemporary fashions to traditional Bedouin handicrafts. Finally, frame your relaxing trip to the Red Sea with the scintillating buzz of Egypt’s capital Cairo, the biggest metropolis of Africa and of the Arabic world, just a six-hour drive from Sharm el Sheikh.
