2021-06-14 – Human Centered Intelligence Systems Conference (HCIS-21)

Online conference on June 14-16, 2021. HCIS-21 is an international scientific symposium for research in the fields of human center intelligent systems. The aim of the conference is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research in the technologies and applications of human center intelligent systems.

Today, intelligent systems play an important role in digital transformation in many areas of science and practice. Artificial intelligence defines core techniques of modern computer science that lead to a rapidly growing number of intelligent services and applications in practice. The investigation of HCIS includes a deep understanding of the human-centered perspective of artificial intelligence, of intelligent value co-creation, ethics, value-oriented digital models, transparency, together with intelligent digital architectures and engineering to support digital services and intelligent systems, the transformation of structures of digital businesses and intelligent systems based on human practices, as well as the study of interaction and the co-adaptation of humans and systems.

Scope of the Conference

Human-centered intelligent systems (HCIS) are information systems applying artificial intelligence in order to support humans and to interact with people. Today, intelligent systems play an important role in digital transformation in many areas of science and practice. Artificial intelligence defines core techniques of modern computer science that lead to a rapidly growing number of intelligent services and applications in practice. The investigation of HCIS includes a deep understanding of the human-centered perspective of artificial intelligence, of intelligent value co-creation, ethics, value-oriented digital models, transparency, together with intelligent digital architectures and engineering to support digital services and intelligent systems, the transformation of structures of digital businesses and intelligent systems based on human practices, as well as the study of interaction and the co-adaptation of humans and systems. HCIS especially considers human work when supporting digital services and building intelligent systems, which consists of optimizing knowledge representations, algorithms, collecting and interpreting the data, and even deciding what to model.

We are inviting authors for contributions from research and practice to the Human-Centered Intelligent Systems (HCIS) conference, which is collocated under the umbrella of KES Smart Digital Futures. Following topics define the conference scope, although other associated subjects may be applicable.
