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--of--
the--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  

  

Call  for  Special  Sessions  

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.    
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,  and  Demo  Paper  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.
