A presentation form notice of IEEE SSCI 2017 Hawaii came to me yesterday. I have already got an acceptance letter by email a couple of weeks ago. I sent my revised camera ready with a copyright form, and registered the conference. That notice let me know that they assigned my paper into the poster presentation. What is that? I didn't have any negative remarks on the review evaluation such as fair or reject from all the three reviewers for my paper. What is going on? I have sent emails to my friends inside the conference and asked them for finding the true reason for that kind of strange decision. Anyhow, a notice after acceptance without showing any reason to put the paper into a poster session is very much unacceptable and makes people unpleasant. Really bad an idea isn't it? After acceptance email, you can know whether your paper is put in an oral or a poster session? This is very much uneasy to follow. They should show respect to contributors!

I found two purple flowers of Strobilanthes oligantha in my north yard this morning. The flowers shrinks within a day long; you can see its blossom from dawning to sunset. This is one of heralds that tell the coming of autumn season.

Anemonopsis macrophylla has a light purple flower, first this year. That is really lovely. Quite late for its blooming rather than usual. What a nice messenger of the end of summer it is! Finally, the long lasting heat of summer is close to the end.

Hot and wet air has covered Tokyo again this week. Everything is full of moisture. Very much uneasy to do anything. What a bad weather we suffer from toward the end of summer!

The van attack terror at the center of Barcelona is a shock to academia, not a small number of meetings are held there this year. The place of the attack is close to Casa Mila, that is one of popular must see sites for people visit Barcelona. That crazy IS and its followers have changed Europe like this. Just five years ago I felt free to travel anywhere inside Europe. When can I enjoy that privilege again there?

It's rainy. It has been rainy since the beginning of this August till today, the mid August. What a strange weather it is! This is a record long of rainy days in August in Tokyo. It's like late September. Tomorrow, maybe it is rainy again. Really wet around there.

I've done some review work just now. All are related to computational intelligence. I'm very much worried about the community's situation; it doesn't compete with people in deep learning. My comments have become somehow serious about their future works. Hope things be going better for them.
