The Seventh IASTED International Conference on Communication Systems and Networks (CSN 2008) will create an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experience in the areas of networks and communication systems. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. CSN 2008 will strengthen relations between the communications sector, research laboratories, and universities. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

CSN 2007 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on: 
Visualization, Imaging, and Image Processing (VIIP 2008)
Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing (ASC 2008)

Coastlines of fine sand and clear water abound on the island of Mallorca, the commercial centre of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands.  Mallorca is surrounded by the Serra Tramunta mountains, offering spectacular views of the varied landscape, including sheer cliffs that drop into the sea, cities of stunning architecture, and Es Raiguer, Mallorca�??s agricultural plain, where thousands of almond trees, orchards, and vineyards thrive.

Palma de Mallorca, the capital city of Mallorca and the Balearic Islands, bustles with all types of tourist activities.  Enjoy strolling through elaborate gardens, walking the medieval city walls, discovering breathtaking basilicas, cathedrals, and Arab baths dating back to the thirteenth century, or visiting the many art galleries that the city has to offer.  If you find your way to the Paseo Maritimo, you can join the Mallorcan locals at the Club de Mar for exciting yachting adventures.  After dark, the quaint bistros, traditional Spanish bars, and small jazz and blues clubs will charm their way into your fondest memories.
