SII2021 goes a virtual
The Organizing Committee has decided to host IEEE/SICE SII2021 online on the same dates as originally scheduled: January 11-14, 2021.

Announcement of terminology usage
The organizing committee would like to propose the authors of this symposium phase out the "master-slave" terminology in their papers of this symposium in light of the recent attention on racial inequality.

SII 2021 will be held as scheduled. There will be no postponement or cancellation of the symposium.

All accepted and registered papers will be published in the symposium proceedings to be included in IEEE Xplore.

SII 2021 organizers continue to monitor the situation and how to hold the symposium is currently under consideration.

Further information will be posted on this website when available.

IEEE/SICE SII is the premier symposium series presenting the state of the art and future perspectives of system integration, where industry experts, researchers, and academics share ideas and experiences surrounding frontier technologies, breakthroughs, and innovative solutions and applications.

The 2021 IEEE/SICE International Symposium on System Integration (SII 2021) will be the 13th symposium on system integration. System integration is one of the key technologies and the integration of hardware and software is especially important to solve the industrial or social system problems in the new century. This symposium focuses on the new research and industrial application of system integration and discusses the approach method to improve the effectiveness of system integration.
