Welcome

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. Even with nearly 10-year continuous endeavors, attempts to strictly define the knowledge science may be still ambitious, but a very tolerant, broad-based and open-minded approach to the discipline can be taken. 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, was held in September of 2000 (KSS2000), then KSS2001 (Dalian, China), KSS2002 (Shanghai, China), KSS2003 (Guangzhou, China), KSS2004 (JAIST, Japan), KSS2005 (Vienna, Austria), KSS2006 (Beijing, China), KSS2007 (JAIST, Japan) and KSS2008 (Guangzhou, China) had been held successfully and many scientists and researchers, from different countries, contributed to all those symposia. Within 10 years, people interested in Knowledge and Systems Sciences have been growing up into a community and a specific international society has already existed for 7 years. ISKSS exhibits its particular views toward complex problems solving even from its name.

This year, the 10th symposium, KSS2009 will be held in Hong Kong 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 by joining the 6th International Conference on Knowledge Management (ICKM2009) which will be held in Hong Kong, China during December 3-4, 2009.

This Web page is specifically for KSS2009, which joins ICKM2009 this year for efficient organization and wider academic exchange. If you want to browse the full information of ICKM2009, please go to www.ickm2009.org. ICKM2009 will take charge of all publications and conferencing affairs of KSS2009.
