CALL FOR PAPERS
The Fourteenth IASTED International Conference on
Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications
October 18 – 22, 2010
The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
* Technical Committee on Telecommunications
World Modelling and Simulation Forum (WMSF)
The Fourteenth IASTED International Conference on Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications (IMSA 2010) will a major contact venue for research scientists, engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to present their latest developments and applications in this field. aims to strengthen relations among universities, research laboratories, and industries.
Presenters and attendees may join the IASTED Virtual Conference, IMSA 2010 simply by following a weblink to the conference's virtual venue. All that is needed to join the conference is a personal computer with the Internet access, a microphone, and a headset. The conference program includes the chair's opening speech, a keynote speech, tutorial presentations (if any), special sessions, and paper presentations. The conference will also include both text and voice-based Q&A; sessions. This web-based conference is not only more cost-effective, allowing delegates who might not otherwise be able to participate to attend, but there are other benefits as well. IASTED will record the conference and provide all attendees with a copy of this recording, allowing attendees to review papers and tutorials, or to revisit Q&A; discussions. Delegates may also present from the comfort of their own labs or offices, where they will have better access to their research materials. Presenters may upload their power point demonstrations and share their screens for better clarity than is normally available in a traditional conference setting. Finally, during the breaks between sessions, participants will be invited to join chat rooms with others in their research area so that they may discuss their research further.
