 KSE 2009 provides an open forum for intensive discussions and interchange of latest advances in Knowledge and Systems Engineering research. The first Conference on Knowledge and Systems Engineering invites submission of papers to its inaugural meeting to be held in Hanoi, Vietnam in October 2009. Papers are invited on original, substantial and unpublished research on the indicated conference topics and related areas of application.

This year, the conference is organized by College of Technology, Vietnam National University, Hanoi, celebrating the 5th anniversary of the college. The location of the conference - Hanoi is a sacred land of Vietnam. People have settled here along the Red River for a thousand years. Nestled along wooded boulevards among the city's two dozen lakes you will find architectural souvenirs left by all who conquered this great valley, from the Chinese who first came in the last millennium to the French, booted out in our own century.


The conference language is English. All contributions should be original and not published elsewhere or intended to be published during the review period. Submitted papers should be prepared in IEEE style and should not exceed 8 pages. All accepted papers will be included in a proceedings which is published by Conference Publishing Services.
