The 20th Annual
Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE 2007)
will be held from 22-26 April 2007, at the
Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre
in spectacular Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada — host city to the
2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Vancouver is located
in the centre of the world, with almost equal flying times from Europe and
Asia. Direct flights from most major hubs will bring delegates to this
scenic and cosmopolitan city on the Pacific west coast of Canada via the
Vancouver International Airport
On arrival by air, take the convenient
Airporter bus for the 25-minute ride to
a top tourist destination
on many indices, this clean, safe and lively
city offers temperatures around 15°C (59°F) in late April. The Sheraton
is located in the heart of the downtown peninsula and is within easy walking
distance of international cuisine, nightlife, theatres, museums, the famous
Robson Street shopping district and
the largest city park in North America at 400 hectares (1,000
acres). It offers nature trails, beaches and swimming, and is surrounded by a
stunningly scenic seawall that accommodates leisurely walks, jogging, cycling
and rollerblading (with equipment rental shops close at hand).
30-minute drive from the ocean, you can also find yourself atop
Grouse Mountain for a panoramic
view that stretches from Vancouver Island to Mount Baker in the United States
via a gondola ride or, for the more adventurous, via the
Grouse Grind –
a hiking trail to the top that is a test of endurance
reserved only for the strong of heart. Be sure to bring plenty of water and a
little money for your “I survived the Grouse Grind” t-shirt when you reach the
Vancouver is also home to
The University of British Columbia (UBC), one of
the world's great public universities.
I currently serve as the Head of the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
and successfully founded CCECE in 1988.

I extend an invitation to each delegate and look forward to
welcoming you to Vancouver.
CCECE07 is organized into 96 technical sessions covering a broad range of topics
