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 (http://www.goldenbay.com.cy) 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 surroundings The conference will last for three days and will feature tutorials, technical paper presentations, workshops, and distinguished keynote speeches. Instructions to Authors Papers must be submitted in IEEE Conference Style format, which can be downloaded from http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/~george/lm/lm.php?tk=U09DTkVUCQkJU09DTkVUQGxpc3RzLnVmbC5lZHUJOHRoIElFRUUgSW50ZXJuYXRpb25hbCBDb25mZXJlbmNlIG9uIEluZm9ybWF0aW9uLCBJbnRlbGxpZ2VuY2UsIFN5c3RlbXMgYW5kIEFwcGxpY2F0aW9ucyAoSUlTQSAyMDE3KTogRmlyc3QgQ0ZQLCBJbnZpdGVkIFNlc3Npb25zLCBUdXRvcmlhbHMgJiBXb3Jrc2hvcHMgUHJvcG9zYWxzCTEJTGlzdHMJMjE0CWNsaWNrCXllcwlubw==&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ieee.org%2Fconferences_events%2Fconferences%2Fpublishing%2Ftemplates.html .
