The Asia-Pacific Symposium on INTELLIGENT AND EVOLUTIONARY SYSTEMS first took place in 1997 in Canberra and since then, the Asia-Pacific IES Symposiums have become prestigious incubators of research ideas, as well as facilitators of research collaboration. The Symposiums aim to bring together researchers and practitioners from countries of the Asia-Pacific Region in the fields of intelligent systems and evolutionary computation to present ongoing work, exchange ideas, and discuss future collaboration. Researchers from elsewhere interested in collaboration with researchers from the Asia-Pacific Region are most welcome.

The 22nd edition of the conference, IES 2018, will be held in Sapporo, Japan, during December 20-22, 2018, and organized by Hokkaido University.

IES 2018 welcomes fundamental science, methodology, method, and practical application papers in the IES Symposiums’ traditional range of topics, which includes but is not limited to:

Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Life and Societies
Machine Learning
Neural Networks
Data Science and Decision Analytics
Evolutionary and Nature Inspired computation
Game Theory
Human/Brain-Computer Interaction
Agents and Complex Systems
Cognitive and Developmental Systems
Robotics Systems
Collective Intelligence
