A number of university faculty members in cooperation with the Monte Carlo
Hotel (conference division) will be organizing the conference. The CISST'98
Conference is sponsored by Computer Science Research, Education, and Applications
Tech (CSREA) in cooperation with The National Supercomputing Center for
Energy and the Environment (Department of Energy, USA) and Computer Vision
Research and Applications Tech. (CVRA, USA).
LOCATION OF CONFERENCE:
The conference will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino hotel,
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This is a new hotel with excellent conference facilities
and over 3000 rooms. The hotel is minutes from the Las Vegas airport with
free shuttles to and from the airport. The hotel has many vacation and
recreational attractions, including: casino, waterfalls, spa, kiddie pools,
sunning decks, Easy River water ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted
tennis courts, health spa (with workout equipment, whirlpool, sauna, ...),
arcade virtual reality game rooms, nightly shows, snack bars, a number
of restaurants, shopping area, ... Many of these attractions are open 24
hours a day and most are suitable for families and children. The hotel's
room rate is very reasonable ($79 + tax) per night for the duration of
the conference. The hotel is minutes from other Las Vegas attractions (major
shopping areas, recreational destinations, fine dining and night clubs,
free street shows, ...). For the benefit of our international colleagues:
the state of Nevada neighbors with the states of California, Oregon, Idaho,
Utah, and Arizona. Las Vegas is only a few driving hours away from other
major cities, including: Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, ...
An exhibition is planned during the conference. We have reserved 20+ exhibit
spaces. Interested parties should contact H. R. Arabnia (address is given
below). All exhibitors will be considered to be the co-sponsors of the
conference. Each exhibitor will have the opportunity to include a two-page
description of their latest products in the conference proceedings (if
submitted by May 22, 1998).
Proposals to organize technical sessions should be submitted as soon as
possible (well ahead of the February 20 deadline).
