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. With over 11-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), KSS2008 (Guangzhou, China), KSS2009 (Hong Kong, China) and KSS2010 (Xi'an, China) had been held successfully and many scientists and researchers, from different countries, contributed to all those symposia. Within 12 years, people interested in Knowledge and Systems Sciences have been growing up into a community and a specific international society has already existed for 9 years. KSS symposia exhibit its particular views toward complex problems solving even from its name.
This year, the 12th KSS symposium is still expected to provide excellent opportunities for presenting interesting new research results, facilitating interdisciplinary discussion, and leading to knowledge transfer and the synergetic generation of new ideas by joining the 55th meeting of the International Society for Systems Sciences (ISSS2011) during July 17-22, 2011.
