――― Welcome ! ―――

It is our great honor and pleasure to have the 8th IEEE International Conference on Cybernetics and Intelligent Systems (CIS) and the 8th IEEE International Conference on Robotics, Automation and Mechatronics (RAM), which will be held from 19 to 21 November, 2017 in Ningbo, China.


The IEEE International Conferences on CIS & RAM have always been held together, to exploit the synergistic relationship between both areas. CIS-RAM was first held in Singapore in 2004, followed by Thailand in 2006, Chengdu (China) in 2008, Singapore in 2010, Qingdao (China) in 2011, Manila (Philippines) in 2013, and Angkor Wat (Cambodia) in 2015. CIS-RAM 2017 will be held in Ningbo which is located in the middle part of China′s mainland coastline and in the south of Yangtze River delta. Ningbo is recognized as one of the China′s most beautiful harbor and multicultural cities.
