IASTED-HCI 2010 : The Fifth IASTED International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Fifth IASTED International Conference on
August 23 – 25, 2010
Maui, Hawaii, USA
The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
The Fifth IASTED International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (IASTED-HCI 2010) will be a major forum for international researchers and professionals to present their latest research, results, and ideas in all areas of human-computer interaction. Its aim is to strengthen relations between industry, research laboratories, and universities.
IASTED-HCI 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)
* Circuits and Systems (CS 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.
