24th International Symposium on Methodologies for Intelligent Systems (ISMIS 2018): Last Call for Papers

by George Angelos Papadopoulos, May 11, 2018

The scope of ISMIS is intended to represent a wide range of topics on
applying Artificial Intelligence techniques to areas as diverse as decision
support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge based systems,
machine learning, computer vision, robotics, planning, databases,
information retrieval, etc. The focus is on research in intelligent systems.
The conference addresses issues involving solutions to problems that are
complex to be solved through conventional approaches and that require the
simulation of intelligent thought processes, heuristics and applications of
knowledge. The integration of these multiple approaches in solving
complex problems is of particular importance. ISMIS provides a forum and a
means for exchanging information for those interested purely in theory,
those interested primarily in implementation, and those interested in specific
research and industrial applications.

24th International Symposium on Methodologies for

Intelligent Systems (ISMIS 2018)


St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus, 29-31 October, 2018

*** Extended Deadline: 28 May, 2018 ***



WELCOME


ISMIS is an established and prestigious conference for exchanging the latest

research results in building intelligent systems. Held twice every three years,

the conference provides a medium for exchanging scientific research and

technological achievements accomplished by the international community.



SCOPE


The scope of ISMIS is intended to represent a wide range of topics on

applying Artificial Intelligence techniques to areas as diverse as decision

support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge based systems,

machine learning, computer vision, robotics, planning, databases,

information retrieval, etc. The focus is on research in intelligent systems.

The conference addresses issues involving solutions to problems that are

complex to be solved through conventional approaches and that require the

simulation of intelligent thought processes, heuristics and applications of

knowledge. The integration of these multiple approaches in solving

complex problems is of particular importance. ISMIS provides a forum and a

means for exchanging information for those interested purely in theory,

those interested primarily in implementation, and those interested in specific

research and industrial applications.



INVITED SPEAKERS


• Michael May - Siemens, Munich, Germany


• Jean-Marc Petit - INSA Lyon and Université de Lyon, France



TOPICS


ISMIS 2018 is intended to attract individuals who are actively engaged both

in theoretical and practical aspects of intelligent systems. The goal is to

provide a platform for a useful exchange between theoreticians and

practitioners, and to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas in the following

areas:


• Active Media Human-Computer Interaction

• Autonomic and Evolutionary Computation

• Digital Libraries

• Health Informatics

• Intelligent Agent Technology

• Intelligent Data Processing and Analytics

• Intelligent Information Retrieval

• Intelligent Information Systems

• Intelligent Language Processing

• Knowledge Integration and Aggregation

• Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining

• Knowledge Visualization

• Logic for Artificial Intelligence

• Multimedia Information Retrieval

• Soft Computing

• Text Mining

• Web Intelligence

• Web Mining


In addition, we solicit papers dealing with Applications of Intelligent Systems

in complex/novel domains, e.g. art, human genome, global change,

manufacturing, social good, etc.
