The International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and

Applications (IISA) series offers a forum for the constructive interaction and

prolific exchange of ideas among scientists and practitioners from different

research fields such as computers, mathematics, physics, biology, medicine,

chemistry, experimental psychology, social sciences, linguistics, and

engineering having the goal of developing methodologies and tools for the

solution of complex problems in artificial intelligence, biology, neuroscience,

security, monitoring, surveillance, healthcare, sustainability in energy

sources, governance, education, commerce, automation, robotics,

optimization, image, speech and natural languages, and their integration.


IISA 2017 is the eighth conference in the IISA series, technically

co-sponsored by IEEE, BAIF, the University of Piraeus and the University

of Cyprus.


The IISA 2017 proceedings will be published by IEEE and be included

in the IEEE DL.


The conference is intended as an international forum for researchers and

professionals in all areas of Information, Intelligence, Systems, and

Applications. We invite submissions of papers presenting high-quality

original research and developments for the conference tracks listed below.


The conference venue is the Golden Bay Beach Hotel (http://www.goldenbay.com.cy)

perfectly situated at the edge of the tourist part of Larnaca, right on a long

and wide stretch of fine and clear sandy beach, 10 km from the town center,

just 15 km from Larnaca International Airport and 30 minutes from the

capital city of Nicosia. This prestigious 5* hotel is renowned for its excellent

facilities, combined with impeccable service and finest cuisine in luxurious

surroundings


The conference will last for three days and will feature tutorials, technical

paper presentations, workshops, and distinguished keynote speeches.



Instructions to Authors


Papers must be submitted in IEEE Conference Style format, which can be

downloaded from http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html .


Papers must be limited to 6 pages in length.
