Technical Committee on Communications

The IASTED International Conference on Networks and Communication Systems will act as an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experience in the areas of networks and communication systems. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. NCS 2005 aims to strengthen relations between the communications sector, research laboratories, and universities. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

Krabi is located about 800 km south of the Thai capital, Bangkok on the Adaman coast. The reflective blue water, beautiful long beaches, world-class rock climbing, Thai massages, herbal saunas and majestic wats (temples) makes deciding what to do first in Krabi the most difficult question. Whether you're interested in fine cuisine, cultural events, or just relaxing on the exotic beaches, Krabi provides the ultimate destination for travelers to Thailand. Krabi is filled with many natural wonders such as Fossil Shell Beach and countless natural mineral caves. For the eco-tourist, the many sheer limestone cliffs have earned Krabi the reputation as one of the premier rock-climbing sites in the world. Once you imagine yourself experiencing all Krabi has to offer you’ll agree that it’s a flawless venue for EPS 2004.
