Conference Theme

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.

Topics of Interest

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.


The ISMIS 2018 proceedings will be published by Springer in LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) and will be available at the conference. Authors of best papers will be invited to submit their extended versions to the Journal of Intelligent Information Systems (JIIS) published by Springer. Fast Track Processing will be used to have them reviewed and published.
