WELCOME

On behalf of the conference Committee, we welcome you to ISEIS 2010 (International Conference on Ecological Informatics and Ecosystem Conservation). The Conference will build on the success of the previous conferences, which were held in the United States, Canada, China and Thailand. The objective of this conference is to provide a forum to address issues relevant to foundations, techniques and tools of environmental information sciences. The forum brings together scientists, engineers and managers from a broad range of disciplines with common interests. This event will maintain the quality of the previous conferences while incorporating new features to enhance your experience. You will also learn about the latest developments in ecological information sciences and ecosystem conservation. The workshops, exhibits and poster sessions are all designed to facilitate your interaction with other practitioners as well as the presenters.

The conference venue is in the heart of Beijing, China and offers beautiful views and wonderful accommodations. Beijing is described as "one of the world's great cities" and declares that the city has been an integral part of China?s history for centuries. Nowadays it has developed into an international modern city and hosted the 2008 Olympic Games successfully.

We also welcome participants' guests. The conference guest tours and activities will showcase the highlights of Beijing and other parts of China.

Please join us at the conference and enjoy the beauty of Beijing. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
