ECTI-EEC Special Section on Papers Selected from ISMAC 2009
ECTI-EEC Special Section on Papers Selected from ISMAC 2009
Foreward from Guest Editors
The First International Symposium on Multimedia and Communication Technology
(ISMAC) 2009, held in Bangkok Thailand on Jan 22-23, 2009, is the first AUN/Seed-Net
(Asean University Network/ Southeast Asian Engineering Education Network) Regional
Conference in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. ISMAC provides a forum for
researchers in Multimedia and Communication Technology to share the research results and
advanced technology.
A total of 54 papers have been accepted for presentation. After rigorous reviews from peerreviewed committees for extended version of papers from ISMAC 2009 submitted for
consideration of ECTI-EEC publications, guest editors have recommended 4 technical papers
and 1 invited paper for publication in ECTI-EEC Special Section on Papers Selected from
ISMAC 2009, August 2010 issue.
All of these selected papers are novel and quite valuable for many researchers in all related
fields and thus the guest editors are happy to publish them into this special section. Finally,
we would like to express our special thanks for all of reviewers and for all staff supporting
this special section.
ISMAC 2009 gathered researchers in a new forum that will soon be convened again in
ISMAC 2010 on September 8-9, 2010 to be held in Manila, Philippines.
