CALL FOR PAPERS
IASTED International Conference
Computer Science and Technology
~CST 2003~
May 19-21, 2003
Cancun, Mexico
SPONSORS
The International Association of Science and Technology for Development

LOCATION
CSS 2003 will be held in the beautiful resort city of Cancun. Fourteen miles of sugar-white sand, lapped by the turquoise and emerald waters of the Carribbean, make this one of the world’s most popular travel destinations. Besides its first class swimming and snorkeling, Cancun is also the gateway to the ruins and cultural treasures of Ancient Mexico. The nearby city of Chichen Itza, with its 75-foot pyramid for the god Kukulcán, is the most famous Mayan cultural site in the world. Also impressive is the ancient walled city of Tulum, believed by archeologists to be an important ceremonial and trade center for the Mayan people. Cancun also boasts many ecological wonders, including the nearby Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and the coves and caves of Xcaret.
