**About ISDA 2021**

The International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA) is a major international conference bringing together researchers, engineers, and practitioners who work in the areas of intelligent systems and their applications in industry and the real world. Every year, ISDA attracts authors from over 30 countries. After the success of the 20th conference, which was held online, this year's event will also be held online during December 13-15, 2021.

ISDA 2021 is expected to provide an opportunity for researchers to meet and discuss the latest solutions, scientific results, and methods in solving intriguing problems in the fields of artificial intelligence and its real-world applications. The conference programme will include workshops, special sessions, tutorials, prominent keynote speakers, and regular paper presentations in parallel tracks. All submitted papers will be reviewed by experts in the field based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and clarity. Conference contents will be submitted for inclusion in Springer and other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
