After almost half a month travel through Asia and Hawaii, I have been back to Tokyo last week. A pile of emails occupied my laptop. It's really bad as always. A good news is that results of experiments of a new algorithm look nice to me. Everything is going well but for a small fraction of too much well going piece of the results. I must put that portion into a second try of the algorithm.
It's cold and windy today in Tokyo. After a series of long journey, I decided not to come to Rio de Janeiro next July, that is far away from Tokyo. Maybe not a small number of people who joined SSCI agree with me on that point. Too far from anywhere, geometrically and psychologically.

Weather changes day by day in Tokyo. It's cool and windy today, and shall be warm extraordinarily tomorrow. This year is really strange. Camellia has no flower yet. It is in the beginning of Camellia blossom season in autumn. What is going on this year?

Leucosceptrum stellipilum has shown its beautiful purple flowers since the day before yesterday in my south east yard. It has been rainy for six days, and it was a very cold rain that I have never experienced here in October. What a strange weather it was! Today it is a lovely day a bid windy. Next week a cyclone is to approach Tokyo area. Again, it must be a bad weather.

Tricyrtis macranthopsis has blossomed in my north east yard this year! This orange-yellow flower is very much appealing to people who love autumn flowers. Tricyrtis hirta f. albescens shows its pure white flower in the north yard. Those ones had not shown any flowers last year, and survived the last year summer. What lovely flowers they have this year. I'm happy to see them again.

The Symposium chair of Swarm Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2017 SIS) has just sent an email to me. His reason for assigning my paper into a poster session is that he has no vacancy for the oral sessions! Is it the reason for that? Meanwhile, my young friends inside the Conference had begun to move for getting a better direction so as my elder colleagues and friends get in touch with various people who care of the situation on me. They are moving to help me on this matter among them. I'm very much thankful to all of them. Somebody knows something good should be done in the world always. I really thank God who allows me to work with those nice people.

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!
