The 14th IEEE International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ISADS)


Opportunities and challenges for implementing highly complex, efficient, and dependable business and control systems have been steadily increasing, driven by the continuous growth in the power, intelligence, adaptiveness and openness of technologies and standards applied in computing, communication and control systems. Dynamically changing social and economic situations demand the next-generation of systems to be based on adaptive, reusable, and internet and Web-enabled technologies and applications. Such systems are expected to have the characteristics of living systems composed of largely autonomous and decentralized components. Such systems are called Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ADS). The International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ISADS) has been the premier events in the past twenty-eight years to have successfully addressed these challenges. The 14th ISADS 2019 will continue to focus on the advancements and innovations in ADS concepts, technologies, applications strategic issues, and other related topics. The special topic for ISADS 2019 is “Technology and Business Innovation through Structure Change of Society and Life”.
