Message From the General Chair

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Third Vietnamese Technical International Conference, VTIC2000. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to thank all of you for your participations and I hope that you will enjoy the technical meetings as well as the conference location. The conference is organized by VACETS and co-sponsored by San Jose State University, Fujitsu America, Cisco Systems, Netsperanto (, Compaq, MicroLambda,, and many others.

VTIC2000 is part of VACETS' on going effort to create opportunities for Vietnamese technical professionals and students to exchange knowledge, ideas, information, to share achievements and contribution, and to network to each other. In general, the conference intention is to foster professional friendship and business partnership among conference participants, which is an important factor for the success in today global business and technology competitiveness. With the conference theme of "Technology and Industry: Beginning Of A New Era," this year conference mainly concentrates on the discussions of technologies that are believed to be global commercialized technologies for the new millennium.

Since today Vietnamese living around the world have studied, worked, contributed, participated in many technical areas, the conference therefore covers a wide range of technical areas to represent the technical diversity of the conference participants. Beside many excellent technical papers in engineering, science, technology, telecommunication, networking, and computing, there are also two tutorials in telecommunication and electronic commerce together with three panel discussion sessions in networking, internet, and telecommunication, all of those reflect the trend of new millennium global technology. The conference also includes a special presentation about E-commerce in East Asia for participants who want to look for global opportunities and challenges in this geographic area, and two career and a higher education workshops to assist students and new graduates in their career job search as well as to prepare them for professional achievement and advancement on the future global technologies and businesses.
