The Third IASTED African Conference on Power and Energy Systems (AfricaPES 2010) will be an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in and applications of power and energy systems. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.

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

* Modelling and Simulation (AfricaMS 2010)
* Water Resource Management (AfricaWRM 2010)
* Health Informatics (AfricaHI 2010)


Botswana has been called an oasis of peace and tranquility on the African continent. It has a history of political stability, a low crime rate, and is one of Africa's most successful economies. Botswana is about the size of France or Kenya, but its low population density has ensured that its beautiful wilderness has remained unspoiled. Botswana is home to 120,000 migrant elephants – the largest elephant population in the world. The Kalahari Desert covers 84% of the country, yet in the midst of this desert is the world's largest inland delta. The Okavango Delta is a breathtaking labyrinth of lagoons, lakes, and hidden channels covering an area of 17000 km². There you will find the Moremi Game Reserve, with forests, floodplains, and lagoons that offer spectacular glimpses of a huge diversity of plant and animal life, including lions, buffalo, crocodiles, and leopards. The administrative centre for Botswana's strong economy, the capital city of Gaborone, is a fast-growing, vibrant modern city. Shop the amazing collections of local arts and crafts and you will fall in love with Botswana's rich culture and history. Enjoy the many fine restaurants and nightclubs, or take a quiet walk up Kgale Hill to see an amazing view of the city, as well as the pair of black eagles that nest in the craggy cliff face just below the peak.
