KES IDT 2009
First KES International Symposium
on Intelligent Decision Technologies
Himeji, Japan, 23-24 April 2009
Knowledge-Based Software Engineering and Medical Decision Support Systems

The conference will take place at the Egret Himeji Convention Center in Himeji, Japan, home of Himeji Castle which is a spectacular UNESCO world heritage site. The conference is interdisciplinary in nature and will consist of keynote talks, oral and poster presentations, invited sessions and workshops, on the applications and theory of intelligent decision systems and related areas.
Due to the knowledge-based software engineering has advanced at a tremendous rate and seems to be accelerating, as computers become faster and more powerful. The objective of this invited session is to explore recent research progress in the medical/health/healthcare areas of artificial intelligence and software engineering.
