The Thirteenth IASTED International Conference on Computers and Advanced Technology in Education (CATE 2010) will act as a major forum for the presentation of innovative ideas, approaches, developments, and outcomes of research projects in the area of technology-based education as well as the exchange of information between researchers, faculty, administrators and practitioners. Main groups of conference topics include but are not limited to applications of advanced technology and software-hardware systems for modern teaching and learning, best practices and case studies on innovative technology-based teaching strategies and instructional design approaches, institutional strategies and policies on technology-based education and training, technology-based open and distance education, national and international projects and collaboration, and technology as an enabler of globalization of education.

CATE 2010 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Signal and Image Processing (SIP 2010)
* Computational Intelligence (CI 2010)
* Circuits and Systems (CS 2010)
* Human-Computer Interaction (IASTED-HCI 2010)


Mild weather, warm water, soft beaches, and emerald rainforests; the island of Maui's charm is irresistible. The second largest of the Hawaiian Islands, Maui was forged by two volcanoes whose lava flows overlapped, forming Maui's two distinct peaks connected by a strip of land, or isthmus. It is this isthmus for which Maui has been dubbed ‘The Valley Isle.' Dormant for the last several hundred years, the volcanic island has long been the home of the Polynesian peoples, who originally came from Tahiti and the Marquesas. The French admiral Jean-François de La Pérouse was the first European to set foot on the island in 1786, and was closely followed by traders, whalers, loggers, and missionaries. Though these visitors altered both the natural and cultural landscape of Maui, both Maui's natural beauty and rich Polynesian heritage remain well preserved. As a result, Maui is the ideal spot to swim, snorkel, hike, whale watch, explore the traditional culture of the Hawaiians, or just relax on the beach. The city of Lahaina, where our conference will be held, also offers rows of shops and restaurants where you can sample the succulent Hawaiian cuisine, including the delicious fresh fruit grown on Maui. No matter what your tastes or interests, a visit to Maui's charming shores is sure to leave you relaxed and rejuvenated.

* Advanced Educational Software and Hardware

* Advanced Technology and Human Resource Issues

* Advanced Technology in Education and Training
