The 2018 IEEE International Conference on INnovations in Intelligent SysTems and Applications (INISTA 2018) has been organized since 2005. It aims to bring together the researchers from the entire spectrum of the multi-disciplinary fields of intelligent systems and establish effective means of communication between them. In particular, it focuses on all aspects of intelligent systems and the related applications, from the points of view of both theory and practice. Apart of the main track it includes work-shops, tutorials, special sessions and plenary talks by invited speakers.

The conference will be hosted in Thessaloniki Greece. Thessaloniki (520 km. north of Athens) is the second largest city of Greece and the most important centre of the area. Built near the sea (at the back of the Thermaïkos Gulf), it is a modern metropolis bearing the marks of its stormy history and its cosmopolitan character, which give it a special beauty and charm. Take a tour in the centre of Thessaloniki and plan to visit its nearby destinations. Also, while being in Thessaloniki it is worth going up to Halkidiki.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, available on IEEE Xplore and submitted to be indexed in the Web of Science Core Collection databases.
