20th Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE 2007)

Our Common Future 22-26 April 2007
Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel
1088 Burrard Street, Vancouver
British Columbia, Canada

Welcome from the Conference General Chair

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 the Sheraton.

Renowned as 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 Stanley Park, 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). 

Within a 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 top!

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. For a full history of the conference, refer to our history page. 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 including communications, signal processing, biomedical, VLSI, MEMS and nanotechnology, control, power systems, computer engineering and software engineering. The preliminary Conference Program and Detailed Technical Program are available for viewing. As in previous years, delegates from all over the world are expected.
