On the purpose of promoting a cooperative research/development relationships among Asian countries, the symposiums have been held alternately in Korea and Japan every year since 2000. The ISIS2017 gets 17 years old in 2016. We have a long history of true friendships and spiritual relationships between the Korean Institute of Intelligent Systems (KIIS) in Korea and the Society for Fuzzy Theory and Intelligent Informatics (SOFT) in Japan. Although the conferences have been held in East Asia, several hundreds of participants are from all over the world. Now, the ISIS2017 has become one of the most leading and prestigious symposiums contributing to the advancement in intelligent systems in the world.
The purpose of this symposium is to share ideas, provide information, and enlarge human networks. It will open a lively scientific forum by bringing researchers, engineers, and practitioners from diverse backgrounds all together to discuss and disseminate the latest state-of-the-art achievements, challenges, and future directions.
The symposium will start with a welcome reception and a technical program that consists of plenary speeches and formal presentations including invited sessions, organized sessions, tutorials/workshops, and oral and poster sessions. In addition to the technical program, various social events will offer the opportunities of strengthening networks and interactions between the participants of the ISIS2017.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the committee members for their valuable contributions to the ISIS2017. Also, I would like to say many thanks to oversea societies, institutes, and associations for their sponsorships for the symposium.
