2016 IEEE/SICE International Symposium on System Integration
December 13-15, 2016. Sapporo Convention Center, Hokkaido, Japan

Submission deadline: August 5, 2016


The 20th century was the age of evolution of science and technology concerning artifacts. Fundamentals of mass production had been established by specialized technologies and surely had contributed our social life. In the 21st century, our societies expect methodologies for solving problems of complex systems consisting of society, human and technologies, which cannot be completed by single sectionalized technology. Under these circumstances, the system integration (SI) to look down the whole technologies is becoming a critical issue of engineering. 2016 IEEE/SICE International Symposium on System Integration (SI International 2016, SII2016) will be held as the ninth symposium on system integration. System integration is one of the key technologies and the integration of hardware and software is especially important to solve the industrial or social system problems in new century. This symposium focuses to the new research and industrial application of system integration, and discusses the approach method to improve effectiveness of system integration.
