Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
The IASTED International Conference on
Circuits and Systems
August 23 – 25, 2010
Maui, Hawaii, USA
The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
* Technical Committee on Circuits and Systems
The IASTED International Conference on Circuits and Systems (CS 2010) will be an international forum for researchers and specialists to exchange new ideas and practical experience in the above areas. It will provide an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas, and to collaborate on current issues identified by conference participants. All papers submitted to this conference will be double blind peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.
CS 2010 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:
* Computers and Advanced Technology in Education (CATE 2010)
* Signal and Image Processing (SIP 2010)
* Computational Intelligence (CI 2010)
* Human-Computer Interaction (IASTED-HCI 2010)
Mild weather, warm water, soft beaches, and emerald rainforests; the island of Maui's charm is irresistible. The second largest of the Hawaiian Islands, Maui was forged by two volcanoes whose lava flows overlapped, forming Maui's two distinct peaks connected by a strip of land, or isthmus. It is this isthmus for which Maui has been dubbed ‘The Valley Isle.' Dormant for the last several hundred years, the volcanic island has long been the home of the Polynesian peoples, who originally came from Tahiti and the Marquesas. The French admiral Jean-François de La Pérouse was the first European to set foot on the island in 1786, and was closely followed by traders, whalers, loggers, and missionaries. Though these visitors altered both the natural and cultural landscape of Maui, both Maui's natural beauty and rich Polynesian heritage remain well preserved. As a result, Maui is the ideal spot to swim, snorkel, hike, whale watch, explore the traditional culture of the Hawaiians, or just relax on the beach. The city of Lahaina, where our conference will be held, also offers rows of shops and restaurants where you can sample the succulent Hawaiian cuisine, including the delicious fresh fruit grown on Maui. No matter what your tastes or interests, a visit to Maui's charming shores is sure to leave you relaxed and rejuvenated.
