The Eighth IASTED International Conference on
~ SIP 2006 ~

August 14-16, 2006
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

# The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED) Technical Committee on Image Processing
# Technical Committee on Signal Processing

Prof. Jenq-Neng Hwang - University of Washington, USA

This conference is an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of image and signal processing. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. SIP 2006 aims to strengthen relationships between companies, 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.

SIP 2006 will be held in conjunction with IASTED International Conferences on:
Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications (IMSA 2006)

On the small island of O’ahu you will find Honolulu, Waikiki, and 75% of Hawaii’s population. It is possible to fall so in love with this island paradise that you will never want to leave. The charm and culture of the locals is enchanting, reflecting Hawaii’s unique history and geography, isolated in the Pacific, flanked at a distance by Eastern and Western cultures. The local cuisine, nightlife, and shopping are all superb, but are there to complement the real magic, which is the waters, sand, and glorious sun of the island itself. The weather stays between 17°C and 30°C (63°F and 85°F) year round. Bask in the sun at Waikiki Beach or Ala Moana, or take the hike to the must-see Diamond Head where you climb a volcanic crater to achieve breathtaking ocean views. Go into the water for swimming, world famous surfing, kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving, or a swim with the turtles at Mokule’ia Beach. Charter a deep-sea fishing boat or go whale watching, and you can even enjoy the coral reefs and thousands of unique sea creatures while on a submarine tour. The vibrant colours of the hibiscus will live forever in your memory. In Hawaii you will experience Aloha, “the breath of life.”

SIP 2006 will be comprised of the following 3 symposia:
1. Signal Processing and Applications (SPA 2006)
