Dr. Voratas Kachitvichyanukul – Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand



Research in computer science and technology is rapidly becoming interdisciplinary. The purpose of ACSE 2009 is to bring together international researchers and practitioners working at the cutting edge of several sub-areas of computer science and engineering, as well as related areas such as scientific computing, computational biology and medicine, and bioinformatics, in order to promote the growth of interdisciplinary computer science and technology research. In addition to fostering research collaboration, this conference aims to enhance technology transfer to industry.

All papers submitted to this conference will be double-blind peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee and related technical committees. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation, and references. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

ACSE 2009 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Web-based Education (WBE 2009)
* Solar Energy (SOE 2009)


Originally an important trading post between China and India that allowed merchants to anchor and avoid the monsoons that passed nearby, Phuket has grown into a modern tropical getaway for people looking to relax and enjoy the many unique treasures the island has to offer. At the centre of Thailand's tourist industry, Phuket has the absolute most variety for its visitors, and everything that you could ever look for in a vacation is available on this island. The tough part is deciding what type of paradise you are looking for! Five Star resort or authentic beach hut? Patong beach, famous for its lively crowd and atmosphere, or Mai Kao beach, a private hideout away from it all? Dance and laugh at a vibrant pub and disco or enjoy a quiet meal at a waterfront restaurant? Red curry with chillies, lemon grass, and coconut milk or fresh caught barracuda, shark, and tuna roasted over an open fire? Even once you decide what kind of vacation you are looking for, Phuket will keep you guessing about what to do next. You could spend your days travelling the west coast of the island and enjoying stunning ocean views, organize a trek to the jungle and ride an elephant, shop for local handicrafts at the Patong beach street market, visit a local Buddhist Wat, or learn more about Phuket at the Thalang National Museum. No matter what you choose, you will always get to experience the famous Thai hospitality that will help make your trip to Phuket one that you will never forget!
