Welcome to KICSS'2011

Creativity enters into virtually every aspect of life. Every one of us is creative, to a degree. Facing the ever-changing and full-of-conflicts world, creative thinking, innovative ideas and implementation are barely needed, and supporting creativity is very natural and becoming one of most challenging areas. Research on creativity support systems and its relevant fields is emerging. It is a multidisciplinary field where advances and innovations rely on the combined efforts of a wide range of scientific, technological and management disciplines along with systems practice. KICSS conference is to facilitate technology and knowledge exchange between international researchers/scholars in the field of knowledge science, information technologies, system science and creativity support systems. The conference will cover a broad range of research topics in the fields of knowledge engineering and science, information technology, creativity support systems and complex system modeling.

To be held in Beijing, a vigorous big city with an unparalleled wealth of discovery from long history and modern development, KICSS2011 is the 6th event in the series of KICSS, which started in Ayutthaya (2006) and successfully was held in Nomi (2007), Hanoi (2008),Seoul (2009) and Chiang Mai (2010). We hope to exhibit the latest research work on effective concepts, methodologies, and advanced knowledge intensive tools to tackle with a variety of complex problems in this colorful while conflicted world.
