The 15th IASTED International Conference on
~ ASM 2006 ~

June 26-28, 2006
Rhodes, Greece

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
Technical Committee on Modelling and Simulation

World Modelling and Simulation Forum (WMSF)

The IASTED International Conference on Applied Simulation and Modelling will provide an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experience in the areas of simulation and modelling. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. ASM 2006 aims to strengthen relations between industry practitioners, 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

ASM 2006 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conference on Power and Energy Systems (EuroPES 2006).

During its long history, Rhodes has been part of Greek, Roman, and Ottoman empires. The different cultures that settled on Rhodes left their mark on all aspects of the island's art, language, and architecture. In this sense, Rhodes is an open museum where traces of past eras can be found on humble village houses as well as ancient ruins, castles, and churches. The most frequented part of the city of Rhodes is the ancient harbour - today called Mandraki - with the statue of the deer and the fawn at its entrance. In this harbour once stood the Colossus of Rhodes, a statue of the sun god Helios and one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. According to mythology, Helios fell in love with the nymph Rhodes, and when he shined his light on her, she transformed into the island. Two thousand years later, the sun god still shines on Rhodes, as it is officially the sunniest place in Europe. Enjoying that divine sunshine is easy on one of Rhodes’ many spectacular beaches. The island won a record 29 European Blue Flags for beaches selected for their cleanliness and organization. Rhodes has a very active nightlife, and most action takes place in downtown Rhodes, Faliraki Beach, Lindos, or Ixia. For a more relaxed excursion, board one of the small vessels that make daily cruises from Mandraki to Symi, Kalymnos, Pserimos, Patmos and Nissiros.
