The 8th International Symposium on Advanced Intelligent Systems (ISIS 2007), a biennial joint conference between Korea and Japan, focuses on artificial intelligence, intelligent systems, information technology, and their applications. ISIS 2007, held on September 5-8 at Soraksan National Park under the auspices of the Korea Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Systems Society (KFIS), was attended by 265 researchers, engineers, and other professionals and featured 206 presentations. Of more than 20 papers preliminarily selected and reviewed by the ISIS 2007 International Program Committees, 7 were chosen for the special issue of the Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Informatics, centering on advanced intelligent systems including robotics, pattern recognition, data mining, and decision-making systems. The content and conclusions presented in these fine papers should prove both interesting and informative to specialists and generalists alike. I thank the authors and reviewers for their painstaking contributions to this special issue and Prof. Kaoru Hirota of the Tokyo Institute of Technology for inviting me to guest-edit this work.
