With the development of analog and digital integrated circuits, designs and applications are now being approached at the system level, integrating the transmission and transformation of signals and signal processing circuits. Current issues relating to signals include processing, visualization, transmission, control and behaviour. Within the area of circuits, pertinent topics include analog and digital ICs, nanotechnology, MEMs, sensors, bioelectronics, molecular electronics, optoelectronics, sprintronics, communications and wireless networks. Relevant issues in control include optimization, computational aspects, artificial intelligence, robotics and micro-robotics, modelling and simulation.

The IASTED International Conference on Circuits, Signals, and Systems (CSS 2006) will create an international forum for researchers and specialists to exchange new ideas and practical experience in the above areas. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas, and to collaborate on current issues identified by conference participants. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

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

Computational Intelligence (CI 2006)

The gold rush in 1848 forever transformed San Francisco from a quiet Spanish village to a booming metropolis. Its history is a showcase of cultural, artistic, and architectural achievements. No postcard can do justice to the spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset, or the charm of riding the city’s famous cable cars. San Francisco’s number one attraction is Pier 39, a festival marketplace at Fisherman’s Wharf with gorgeous views of the bay and lots of fun attractions. From there, take a ferry to Alcatraz or check out the California sea lions sunning themselves on the nearby floating docks. There are many inland delights as well. Check out the Victorian style homes of the early 20th Century, famously known as the Painted Ladies. Experience the energetic bustle of North America’s most vibrant and populous Chinatown. Take a walking tour through the neighborhood of North Beach with its poetry and jazz cafes, fine art stores, delis, and museums, and discover the spirit of the Beat movement that transformed American poetry in the 1950’s. Do-it-yourself walking tours of Union Square and Golden Gate Park are also sure to impress. Take the family along for the fun of the California Academy of Sciences or enjoy a more sophisticated evening of wine tasting at a world-renowned vineyard. San Francisco is a city of endless possibility.
