international forum for researchers and practitioners to report up-to-the-minute innovation and
development, summarize the state-of-the-art, and exchange ideas and advances in all aspects of systems
science and engineering, human machine systems, and cybernetics. The conference theme is:

Big Data Analytics for Human-Centric Systems
Humans, software, and hardware are routinely combined to form systems to meet needs of ever-increasing
scope and application. Pervasive sensors distributed across a range of temporal and geographic scales now
make unprecedented data sets available. These data can be used to understand and support how systems
function, how they can reflect human needs and capabilities, and how they can be improved. Considerable
barriers still exist to harnessing these data to address the complexity of real-world applications and
simulations. Human systems need well-considered analytic approaches that reflect an understanding of
human cognitive work. Software and hardware systems need architectures and tools that are efficient, faulttolerant and well-suited to human needs. This conference seeks to engage the SMC community to address
these issues and to craft new discoveries and applications that will shape how society views and uses big data.

Call for Special Sessions

Proposals to organize Special Sessions are strongly encouraged. Special Sessions must be related to the
conference theme or especially hot topics within the conference scope. All submitted papers undergo the
same review process, and submission to proposed sessions is not a guarantee of acceptance.

Call for Contributed Papers

Prospective authors are invited to submit their full-length papers electronically through the conference
website. Each paper should be concise with sufficient detail and references to allow critical review. Papers will
be reviewed by at least two referees for technical merit and content. Accepted papers will be presented in
