The 10th International Conference on Awareness Science and Technology (iCAST 2019)

October 23 - 25, 2019, Morioka, Japan


We welcome your participation and contribution to the 10th IEEE International Conference on Awareness Science and Technology (iCAST 2019) to be held at Aiina 7th & 8th Fl., Morioka, Iwate, Japan in October 23 - 25, 2019.

This iCAST conference series started from the International Workshop on Aware Computing (IWAC 2009) held in Aizu-Wakamatsu, Japan, extended as the International Symposium on Aware Computing (ISAC 2010) held in Tainan, Taiwan, and became the current conference name, iCAST, from the third conference. Since then, iCAST 2011, iCAST 2012, iCAST 2013, iCAST 2014, iCAST2015, iCAST2017 and iCAST2018 have been held in China, Korea, Japan, France, China, Taiwan and Japan, respectively.


The 10th International Conference on Awareness Science and Technology (iCAST 2019) is a major international conference to bring together researchers, engineers, and scientists from academia and industry working in awareness science and its applications, for discussion, exchanging ideas, opinions, and most importantly to present their works and latest results. Special sessions on various subjects related to artificial intelligence, soft-computing, intelligent systems, perception, cognitive science, psychology, data analysis, IoT are welcome.
