PURPOSE
The International Conference on Communication Systems and Applications (CSA 2006), sponsored by IASTED, will be a major forum for international researchers and professionals to present their latest research, results, and ideas in all areas of telecommunications systems, with emphasis on wireless and optical communications. Its aim is to strengthen relations between the telecommunications industry, research laboratories, and universities.

CSA 2006 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on

Wireless Networks and Emerging Technologies (WNET 2006)
Optical Communication Systems and Networks (OCSN 2006)

LOCATION
Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies and spanning 6,641 square kilometres of valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers, Banff National Park is truly one of the world's premier destination spots. Banff was Canada's first national park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Summer in Banff means time to put away the skis and bring out the hiking boots. Banff National Park is a hiking wonderland, containing over 1,600 kilometres of trails. Even in July, the warmest month, the snow tipped majesty of the Rockies will fill you in awe as you fish, golf, camp, horseback ride, go white water rafting, or take a helicopter ride. Visitors can tour historic sites, soak in hot springs, stroll along the shores of Lake Louise, and enjoy many first class accommodations. Drive the Icefields Parkway into adjoining Jasper National Park and you have an excellent chance of seeing elk, deer, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, moose, black bears, grizzly bears, and wolves on the roadside. Take a ride on the Banff Gondola or spend just one night camping under the diamond lit sky and you will be convinced that this is the most splendidly beautiful place on earth.
