SMC 2017

C��� ��� P�����

2017 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and
Cybernetics - October 5-8, 2017, http://www.smc2017.org
Banff Center, Banff, Canada
The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC2017) will be held in Banff Centre
one of the most modern conference facility in North America, with majestic mountain view from every presentation room.
SMC2017 is the flagship conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. It provides an international
forum for researchers and practitioners to report up-to-the-minute innovations and developments, summarize state-ofthe-art, and exchange ideas and advances in all aspects of systems science and engineering, human machine systems,
and cybernetics. Advances in systems science and engineering, human-machine systems, and cybernetics have
increasing importance in the creation of intelligent environments involving technologies interacting with humans to
provide an enriching experience, and thereby improve quality of life.
Papers related to the conference theme are especially solicited, including theories, methodologies, and emerging
applications. The following contributions on theory and practice, including but not limited to the following technical areas,
are invited:

Call for Regular Session Papers
Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers electronically through the conference website. Papers should
be concise, but contain sufficient detail and references to allow critical review.

Call for Special Sessions
Special Sessions provide a focused discussion of new or innovative topics. Special session organizers collect at least
five papers, download the special session proposal template from the SMC2017 website, and submit the completed

proposal to the Special Sessions Chair.

Call for Short Paper Sessions, Demo Paper Sessions, and Poster Sessions
These categories of contributions are intended to promote applied research and applications, including work in progress,
and facilitate increased collaboration between industrial and academic members of the SMC community.
Note: Accepted papers that are not presented at SMC 2017 will be excluded from the IEEE proceedings.
