Sixth IASTED International Conference
(Euro-PES 2001)

July 3-6, 2001
Rhodes, Greece

International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
-Technical Committee on Energy and Power Systems

The International Conference on Power and Energy Systems is a major forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to present their latest research, results, ideas, developments, and applications in all areas of electric power and energy systems. It aims to strengthen relations between the power industry, research laboratories, and universities. PES 2001 will be held in Rhodes, Greece, and will include keynote addresses, contributed papers, tutorials, and workshops.

Rhodes (Rodos in Greek), the beautiful island of the rose, is famous for its sun, sea, and sand. An ideal vacation spot, Rhodes is officially the sunniest place in Europe. The island of Rhodes is fascinating, not only for its natural beauty, but also for its archeological treasures. The city of Rhodes dates back to 408 BC. It made strong advances during this time and managed to extend its area of rule, mint its own coin, and introduce the first maritime laws, all before the second century BC. This historical aspect pleasantly merges with the cosmopolitan ambience of a modern resort city, with its luxurious hotels, fine dining, and decorative shops.
