CSCC 2007 (Circuits 2007, Systems 2007, Communications 2007, Computers 2007) 

The annual convention and gathering of all the WSEAS entities (Working Groups, Technical Committees, Editors, 
Associate Editors, Research Directors, Projects Coordinators,etc...) is held in July during the CSCC.

In 2006, this official meeting attracted 1300 people (Click here to see a full report:  )

For the 2007, the Society members is going to be gathered in the 11th CSCC celebrating simultaneously the 11th anniversary from the establishment of the Society (15-July-1996!)

The CSCC is composed by the following parallel conferences. Click on the links of these conferences below to see the Citation Indexes that cover the events, the Plenary Speakers, Special Sessions, Committees, Chairmen, Topics, Location. 


The accepted papers will appear in 

(1) Hard-Copy Proceedings (Book) 

(2) CD-ROM Proceedings 

(3) E-Library: 

The previous publications (with ISBN and ISSN) are indexed by the majority of the Indices: 

BEST PAPERS: The authors of the Best Papers will be invited to send extended versions of their papers after the conference to the Editor-in-Chiefs of WSEAS Journals. These extended versions of the best papers might be published in the WSEAS Journals after the conference with additional review. This very limited number of high-quality papers will be announced in the Post-Conference report of the Conference at: 

No-show authors will be excluded from any further publication in WSEAS Journals, regardless of the quality of their papers. Additionally, they will be required to pay extra shipping and handling fees in order for the organizing committee to mail out their registration receipt, CD-ROM proceedings, and one volume of the hard-copy proceedings.

Crete is the island of surprises and contrasts. High mountains and deep gorges, archaeological sites alongside traditional villages where life continues in a relaxed and friendly way, clear blue seas bordered by golden sandy beaches. Here, in the crossroad of the three ancient Continents, Zeus, the king of Greek gods, was born. Crete, in the minoan era, gave birth to the first civilization in the west-european sense (anthropocentric, in contradistinction of the eastern theocratic civilizations) and also, here, the Apostle Paul was shipwrecked off in what is today known as Kali Limenes (="Good Ports"). 
   The geographical position of Crete attracted the attention of many conquerors, like Romans, Arabs, Crusaders, Venetians, Ottomans and Nazis, and the epic defense of the island against the terrific Ottoman Empire for 25 years as well as the the legendary defense during the second world war, May 1941 (known today as the "Battle of Crete") are admirable samples of the indomitable Cretan soul! 
   Many famous artists and politicians like El-Greco, Venizelos (the father of modern Greece), Kazantzakis (great philosopher and litterateur), Kornaros (the Homer of Modern Greece) and Elytis (Nobel in Literature, 1979) were also born in Crete. 

The conference offers to the Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Applied Mathematics Community a great forum for presenting recent research results, participating in discussions for several research projects and establishing new academic collaborations and linking university with the industry. It was held in 1996 and 1998 in Piraeus (Greece); in 1999 in Athens (Greece); in 2000 in Vouliagmeni, Athens, Greece; in 2001 and 2002 in Rethymno, Greece; in 2003 in Corfu, Greece; in 2004, 2005, 2006 in Vouliagmeni, Athens, Greece.
