This symposium aims to introduce the latest research findings by world-class researchers who lead innovation design and researchers, and to discuss unexplored research areas in the field and the possibility of approaching new issues. ISID 2021 is held by International Research Center for Innovation Design in Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) as JAIST 30 Years Anniversary Event (HP), and supported by JAIST Co-AI Design Research Core and Creative AI Advanced Research Base. ISID 2021 is a totally online event, is free to register. Registration link.

Important Date
Poster Submission (only abstract): Feb. 22, 2021   →  March.1, 2021
Registration: March.9, 2021
Symposium: March. 13-15, 2021

Poster Submission
The Symposium on Intelligence Design invites the exciting work as poster presentation, work-in-progress or partially finished work in design and AI related topics are also welcomed. Only abstract submission is required without manuscript. As the first symposium, ISID 2021 will provide opportunity for experience sharing rather than publication record.
