NASTEC'2008, August 13-15, 2008, McGill University, Montreal, Canada, Conference Aim


The 1st annual North American Simulation Technology Conference (NASTEC) aims at bridging the information gap in research and improving scientific exchanges between Europe and North-America. For this reason EUROSIS has set up the NASTEC conference, which aims to provide an insight into the latest hot research topics in the field of modeling and simulation. As such every year has another main theme, in order to address the latest developments in the field.

The intent of the NASTEC'2008 event is to nurture the spirit of cooperation and strive to improve the quality of life in this global village through excellence in Hybrid Soft Computing Research and Education by Engineering of Next-Generation Intelligent Hybrid Soft Computing Systems for Modeling, Simulation, Software Engineering and Web Computing at the service of humankind. According to Professor Lotfi A. Zadeh (University of California, Berkley, USA) “It may be argued that is Soft Computing rather than Hard-Computing that should be viewed as the foundation of Artificial Intelligence (AI)”

NASTEC’2008 will give European and North-American researchers and practitioners the opportunity to gather, network, present and discuss their work, foster links, enhance existing working and friendly relations and establish new ones. The event will take place in Montreal (McGill University) on August 13, 14 and 15. NASTEC’2008 aimed to give scientists and practitioners from academic, government and industrial institutions the opportunity to learn about this new area of Soft Computing and discuss the existing and potential Synergies and Applications of Soft Computing Technologies in connection with Modeling, Simulation, Software Engineering and Web Computing. This will definitely promote and boost collaboration with research labs and hi-tech industries active in the field of Soft Computing both in Europe and North-America.

All submissions are reviewed by the programme committee and will be original research never before published. The core of the conference is the paper presentations where people will have the opportunity to present their research to others from around the world.
