The 13th International Symposium on

Knowledge and Systems Sciences

Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST)

19th—20th November 2012, Ishikawa, Japan

The annual international symposium on Knowledge and Systems Sciences aims to promote the exchange and interaction of knowledge across disciplines and borders to explore the new territories and new frontiers. Over the past 12-years, continuous endeavors to strictly define knowledge science have led to a very tolerant, broad-based and open-minded approach to the discipline. Knowledge science and systems science can complement and benefit each other methodologically. The first International Symposium on Knowledge and Systems Sciences (KSS2000), initiated and organized by Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, was held in September of 2000. Since then KSS2001 (Dalian, China), KSS2002 (Shanghai, China), KSS2003 (Guangzhou, China), KSS2004 (JAIST, Japan), KSS2005 (Vienna, Austria), KSS2006 (Beijing, China), KSS2007 (JAIST, Japan), KSS2008 (Guangzhou, China), KSS2009 (Hong Kong, China), KSS2010 (Xi'an, China) and KSS2011 (Hull, UK) have been held successfully, with many scientists and researchers from different countries contributing. Within the past 12 years, people interested in Knowledge and Systems Sciences have become a community, and an international academic society has existed for 10 years.

This year, the 13th KSS Symposium will be held November 19th-20th, 2012, at Ishikawa High-Tech Exchange Center, which is located next to JAIST, Ishikawa, Japan.
