8th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications

IISA 2017

Golden Bay Beach Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus

28 - 30 August, 2017

The International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and
Applications (IISA) series offers a forum for the constructive interaction and
prolific exchange of ideas among scientists and practitioners from different
research fields such as computers, mathematics, physics, biology, medicine,
chemistry, experimental psychology, social sciences, linguistics, and
engineering having the goal of developing methodologies and tools for the
solution of complex problems in artificial intelligence, biology, neuroscience,
security, monitoring, surveillance, healthcare, sustainability in energy
sources, governance, education, commerce, automation, robotics,
optimization, image, speech and natural languages, and their integration.

IISA 2017 is the eighth conference in the IISA series, technically
co-sponsored by IEEE, BAIF, the University of Piraeus and the University
of Cyprus.

The IISA 2017 proceedings will be published by IEEE and be included
in the IEEE DL.

The conference is intended as an international forum for researchers and
professionals in all areas of Information, Intelligence, Systems, and
Applications. We invite submissions of papers presenting high-quality
original research and developments for the conference tracks listed below.

The conference venue is the Golden Bay Beach Hotel (
perfectly situated at the edge of the tourist part of Larnaca, right on a long
and wide stretch of fine and clear sandy beach, 10 km from the town center,
just 15 km from Larnaca International Airport and 30 minutes from the
capital city of Nicosia. This prestigious 5* hotel is renowned for its excellent
facilities, combined with impeccable service and finest cuisine in luxurious

The conference will last for three days and will feature tutorials, technical
paper presentations, workshops, and distinguished keynote speeches.
