The International Conference on Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications is a major contact venue for research scientists, engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to present their latest research, ideas, developments, and applications in this field. IMSA 2005 aims to strengthen relations among universities, research laboratories and industry. The full papers will be published in the conference proceedings. All papers submitted to this conference will be based on quality, relevance, and originality.

IMSA 2005 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

IMSA 2005 will take place at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel on beautiful Waikiki Beach. Located in the city of Honolulu on the hawaiian island of Oahu, Waikiki was historically the playground of the hawaiian ali'i (nobility), and has since become one of the most famous beaches in the world. Encircled by high-rise hotels, Waikiki is in fact a string of beaches stretching two and a half miles along the ocean. The soft sand and turquoise waters make it an attractive spot for swimmers, surfers, and other water enthusiasts. The city of Honolulu is the commercial and administrative center for hawaii and is filled with many fine restaurants, shopping centers, and cultural and historical attractions. Other nearby attractions include Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head Crater, and the Polynesian Cultural Center.
