2018 ShanghaiTech Symposium on Information Science and Technology

ShanghaiTech Symposium on Information Science and Technology (SSIST) 2018


The annual ShanghaiTech Symposium on Information Science and Technology (SSIST) is an international forum that features fundamental research developments and groundbreaking technologies in the areas of computer sciences and computational mathematics. Each year, we invite some of the most renowned researchers in the world from both academia and industry to present their latest research work and to discuss future research directions.

The Symposium aims to bring the state of the art research and industrial technologies to young faculty and graduate students in China, especially in the neighboring areas of Shanghai. The first SSIST held in 2015 focused on Data Science and Machine Learning. The second SSIST 2016 had its focus on three main topics: Robotics, Virtual Reality, and Computing Theory and Systems. The third SSIST 2017 was about the Artificial Intelligence and the New Energy. This year’s Symposium (SSIST 2018) will feature some of the most exciting developments in Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence.

The symposium is hosted by the School of Information Science and Technology, ShanghaiTech University.
