Introduction Home > About KIIS > Introduction
The Korean Institute of Intelligent Systems (KIIS) is organized in order to develop and distribute the technology relating to fuzzy theory, intelligent systems, neural networks, and information science, and to enhance the fellowship among its members. The organization was founded on August 27, 1991, where the society obtained official approval for the establishment as an incorporated association, namely, the Korea Fuzzy System Society based on the provision of Article 32. On January 1, 1995, the name of the society was altered from the "Korean Fuzzy System Society" to the "Korean Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Systems Society," and again on January 1, 2008, to "Korean Institute of Intelligent Systems" in order to expand the membership and to broaden the scope of scientific activities.

The society performs the following activities concerning fuzzy logic and intelligent systems theory and its applications:

  • Holding of scientific meetings
  • Publishing and distributing of the Society Magazine and other necessary materials
  • Compilation, arrangement, and exchange of pertinent literatures and data
  • International exchange of scientific activities
  • Contribution to the development of the society and industry
  • Other businesses related to the purpose of the Society

The main purpose of the Society is to provide opportunities for the publication of new researches regarding the technology and applications related to fuzzy and intelligent system theory, which complies with the guidelines for the contribution stipulated by the Society (promulgated by the Editing Committee). Furthermore, its purpose is to participate in the domestic development of technology related to soft computing and applied mathematics, and to enhance/promote international scientific exchange, mutual cooperation as well as fellowship among members.

At the time of establishment, the Society started out with 300 members and has accomplished remarkable development over the years. As of November 2011, this Society has grown into a large scale society having more than 2,000 individual members and 60 institutional members.

In 1993 the Society joined IFSA as a regular member while reinforcing international scientific exchanges and cooperation by establishing cooperative relationships with JACI and IJFS. In addition, many international councils and conferences such as the IFSA International Science Council (1993), AFSS International Science Council (1998) and IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (1999, 2009) were induced and hence the position of the Society has become highly recognized on a global scale.
