Call for Exhibitors and Workshops

ACTEA 2009 will feature a technical exhibition which will be an opportunity for industry to exhibit simulation and computational tools, and related products. We also solicit workshop proposals on new and emerging topics in computational tools in various engineering fields. For workshop proposal submission and exhibitor information, contact the conference coordinator at by April 15, 2009.


The conference will be held at Notre Dame University in Zouk Mosbeh (18 km north of Beirut), a lovely place squeezed between the Mediterranean sea and the cavernous Jeita Grotto which is one of the most impressive subterranean displays of stalactites and stalagmites of the planet. ACTEA 2009 offers the opportunity to explore Lebanon with its legendary hospitality, natural and touristic sites, and its delicious food; it is indeed a unique place to visit. The area offers some of the best of Lebanon in hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, theaters, cinemas, art galleries, and sand beaches.
