With the advancement and widespread use of computers, mobiles and web-based technology, intelligent interactive systems (IISs) are now a hot research area. Two major characteristics of IISs are intelligence and interactivity. Intelligence here refers to intelligence used in developing user interfaces or agents that are responsible for autonomous decision making. Furthermore, these systems should be capable of intelligently interacting with humans or other agents to analyse, learn plan and communicate among themselves and make collective decisions. Applications for IISs are now being found in designing and modelling business intelligence utilising intelligent and interactive communication technologies and big data analysis, machine learning and web intelligence techniques.

Current research work being carried out in the domain of IISs involves modelling and simulation of user-friendly systems with intelligent approaches for interactions, development of interactive systems for clients, executives and decision makers in the business domain, and also modelling intelligent web-stores for new business processes. There are also various issues and limitations of IISs, such as interoperability, flexibility and platform independence, which need to be addressed.

This special issue will provide a forum to consolidate a broader range of current research achievements and future trends in developing new theories, algorithms, architectures and applications of intelligent interactive business processes.
