John-Tark Lee and Gyei Kark Park
The 10th International Symposium on Advanced Intelligent Systems 2009 (ISIS2009) held on August 17-19, 2009, at the Bumin Campus of Dong-A University (http://www.donga.ac.kr/) in Busan, Korea, was sponsored by the Korean Institute of Intelligent System Society (KIIS) and cosponsored technically by the Japan Society for Fuzzy Theory and Intelligent Informatics (SOFT) and the Taiwanese Association for Artificial Intelligence (TAAI).
The international symposium focused on state-of-art accomplishments, innovations, and potential directions in intelligent systems. It also marked an epoch of innovation and the dissemination of research into many interesting fields. Its broad theme covered the latest in technical fields, including artificial intelligence, intelligent systems, Ambient Intelligence (AmI), bioinformatics, information technology, and their wide-ranging applications, from basic theoretical work to practical engineering applications. The 80 featured papers were presented by 120 participants.
With so many papers submitted to JACIII, this special issue consists of just two strictly selected papers. The first, deals with emerging research trends in robotics, proposing a new trajectory generation using the univariate Dynamic Encoding Algorithm for Searches (uDEAS) in the turning of a biped walking robot. The second paper, presenting the latest findings in AmI, details a newly designed and implemented robust capacitive sensor with parasitic parameter modeling over a range of high 200 KHz frequencies based on an Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) algorithm.
I would like to thank Mr. Kunihiko Uchida, Mr. Shinya Wakai, Ms. Reiko Ohta, and Mr. Shinji Isokawa as editorial staff of Fuji Technology Press for editing these complex manuscripts into their final form. And I really thank to Prof. Kaoru Hirota, Editor-in-Chief of JACIII for inviting me to direct this special issue on ISIS
