Call for Papers: International Conference on Circuits and Systems ICCS
From: International Association of Engineers (IAENG)
San Francisco, USA, 22-24 October, 2008

The conference ICCS'08 is held under the World Congress on Engineering
and Computer Science 2008. The WCECS 2008 is organized by the
International Association of Engineers (IAENG), a non-profit
international association for the engineers and the computer
scientists. The conference has the focus on the frontier topics in the
theoretical and applied engineering and computer science subjects. Our
last IAENG conference has attracted more than one thousand
participants from over 50 countries, and our IAENG conference
committees have been formed with over two hundred committee members
who are mainly research center heads, faculty deans, department heads,
professors, and research scientists from universities like Harvard,
MIT, Stanford, UCLA, UC Berkeley and Yale etc.

All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers
will be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN:
978-988-98671-0-2). The abstracts will be indexed and available at
major academic databases. The accepted papers will also be considered
for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering
Letters, in IAENG journals and in edited books. Revised and expanded
version of the selected papers may also be included as book chapters
in the standalone edited books under the framework of cooperation
between IAENG and Springer, and between IAENG and America Institute of
Physics. For reference, the following post conference edited books of
our recent IAENG 2007 conferences: Trends in Intelligent Systems and
Computer Engineering, Advances in Communication Systems and Electrical
Engineering, Advances in Industrial Engineering and Operations
Research, and Advances in Computational Algorithms and Data Analysis,
have been published by Springer.

process is to ensure the quality of the accepted papers in the WCECS
congress. The conferences have enjoyed high reputation among many
research colleagues (for example, see the http://cs.conference-ranking.net/
or http://www.conference-ranking.com/).

It is our target that the reviewing process and the result
notification for each submitted manuscript can be completed within one
month from its submission. The reviewing process is to ensure the
quality of the accepted papers in the WCECS congress. More details
