The Second IASTED International Conference on
Advances in Management Science and Risk Assessment
~AMSRA 2010~
November 24 – 26, 2010
Bangkok, Thailand


The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)


The Second IASTED International Conference on Advances in Management Science and Risk Assessment (AMSRA 2010) will be designed to encourage interaction among its attendees. We invite you to submit papers on management science, risk analysis and operations research. With the present economic situation worldwide exchanging information, opinions and experiences among those working and interested in the Management Science and Risk Assessment fields should be of great benefit.

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

* Power and Energy Systems (AsiaPES 2010)
* Modelling, Simulation and Identification (AsiaMSI 2010)
* Robotics and Control (AsiaRC 2010)


The gateway to Thailand, Bangkok is the country's largest urban centre and is known around the world as an exotic gem brimming with cultural and historical adventures. Once known as the "Venice of the East", the city sports many perfect getaway locations and events for the visitor to experience. From the beautiful temples and palaces to the dazzlingly vibrant markets, your sojourn there/here will be one to remember. Whether on a day trip to the Floating Market and Rose Garden, or a shopping spree ranging from the high end to the hand-made, there is something in Bangkok for everyone.
A must see is the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew complex. The grounds are full of breathtaking artwork and mosaic, and demonstrate an amazing array of traditional Thai Buddhist architecture. If you only see one sight in Bangkok, this should be it. A great option, if you don't have the time or energy for a full city trip, is to take a canal tour throughout the back-canals of the city. This will give you the chance to see things that you would never find otherwise and also lets you stop at many of the temples along the way. No matter where you visit in Bangkok, you will remember the city as one of the most exotic and vibrant places you have ever been.
