We are pleased to invite you to the 22nd International Symposium on Advanced Intelligent Systems (ISIS2021) which will be held on December 15-18, 2021 at Chungbuk National University, Cheongju, Korea. In every two years, this conference has been held in Korea, and in alternative two years, ISIS has been held in Japan.
ISIS 2021 will provide all the presenters and participants with a great opportunity to present and discuss the latest accomplishments, challenges, and future directions in the field of advanced intelligent systems. However, the most important thing is to build a friendship and sustainable cooperative relationship between researchers and participating countries.
Cheongju is the largest city of North Chungcheong Province in South Korea. It is located in the center of Korea, 128km from the capital of Korea. Throughout Korean history, Cheongju has boasted of its rich culture and traditions and beautiful sceneries. The city has many noble names such as ‘beautiful academic city, beautiful cultural city’, and just as its names suggest, the city has put much importance on scholarly studies from old times. It is not surprising that Cheongju is the birthplace of Jikjisimcheyojeol, or in short, Jikji, the world’s oldest existing metal type book. This has become an innovative tool for spreading and sharing knowledge and wisdom. This tradition of innovation continues in neighboring Ochang’s information technology complex and Osong’s biology technology complex.
Even though face-to-face contact is not possible due to the pandemic, the mutual friendship that has been built up over the years will be warmly transmitted over the LAN. We are very thankful to SOFT, KIIS, and TFSA. We are also extremely thankful to all the members of the organizing committee, in addition to all the participants of this conference. With the dedication of all members, we have held very meaningful and very successful academic conferences. Also we express my great gratitude to have plenary speakers, invited speakers, session organizers, and all the contributions in technical session with papers and many ways. The slogan of this year conference is “open up new horizons and share the frontiers of intelligent systems”. I hope that you will gain a lot of knowledge and enjoy mutual exchange with the members in ISIS2021.
On behalf of the local organizing committee, we express, once again, to thank all the participants of this conference. Welcome to Korea and Cheong Ju. Wish everyone a pleasant academic conference beyond the barrier of pandemic era.
