* Technical Committee on Information Systems
* Technical Committee on Telecommunications


With the development of analog and digital integrated circuits (ICs), 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, sensors, bioelectronics, molecular electronics, optoelectronics, sprintronics, and wireless communications. Relevant issues in control include optimization, computational aspects, artificial intelligence, robotics, and modelling and simulation.

The IASTED International Conference on Circuits, Signals, and Systems (CSS 2007) will be an international forum for researchers and specialists to exchange new ideas and practical experience in the above areas. It will provide an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas, and to collaborate on current issues identified by conference participants.

CSS 2007 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conference on:
Computational Intelligence (CI 2007)
Communications, Internet, and Information Technology (CIIT 2007)


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 Rockies will fill you with awe as you fish, golf, camp, horseback ride, go whitewater 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, moose, and black bears along 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 beautiful place on earth.
