Welcome to ISCAI 2020

In light of the health concerns caused by COVID-19, and corresponding travel restrictions issued,  our conference committee has made the tough decision to change  ISCAI 2020 to an online event.

The Hong Kong Society of Robotics and Automation (HKSRA) will be organizing the 2020 International Symposium on Computing and Artificial Intelligence (ISCAI 2020) during Nov. 14-16, 2020. The conference’s quality of attendees and topics is at an impressively high level. Moreover, the organization and venue of the ISCAI and co-located conferences are world-class. It was a pleasure to be involved in the Vancouver conference at the University of British Columbia in 2019, which had broad representation from all parts of the globe. The Vancouver conference had exceptional representation from Canadian and United States universities. The conference also included government and commercial research laboratories at the forefront of the artificial intelligence and machine learning fields. The HKSRA facilitates a valuable exchange of ideas amongst academics and practitioners in the computer science fields at an impressive level that few conferences match.

The high academic standards of the HKSRA association ensures a consistent level of quality in the academic work and related discourse. ISCAI is among the premier conferences for sharing advances in computer science and artificial intelligence. The conferences in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2019 were an opportunity to engage scholars and practitioners in North America. The HKSRA conferences in London in 2020 will allow for an international gathering of European and other international participants. The ISCAI and its co-located conferences are a phenomenal opportunity to learn and exchange ideas. I look forward to participating again in November of 2020.

On behalf of organizing committee,

Dr. Peter Holowka, University of Calgary
