Welcome to KSS2008

The KSS Symposium is an annual conference of the International Society for Knowledge and Systems Sciences (ISKSS).
Knowledge science and systems science can be used for one another as methodology and tool and benefit each other. Around these disciplines, the first International Symposium on Knowledge and Systems Sciences, initiated and organized by Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST), was held in September 2000 (KSS2000), then KSS2001 (Dalian, China), KSS2002 (Shanghai, China), KSS2003 (Guangzhou, China), KSS2004 (Ishikawa, Japan), KSS2005 (Vienna, Austria), KSS2006 (Beijing, China), and KSS2007 (Ishikawa, Japan) had been held and many scientists and researchers, from different countries, contributed to all those symposia. This year, the 9th symposium, KSS2008 will be held in South China University of Technology ( Guangzhou, China), jointly with the 4th International Conference on Knowledge Management in Asia Pacific (KMAP2008), and still expect to provide excellent opportunities for the presentation of interesting new research results, and discussion about them, leading to knowledge transfer and the synergetic generation of new ideas.
