The 2020 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC 2020) will be held in Banff Centre one of the most modern
conference facility in North America, with majestic mountain view. SMC 2020 is the flagship conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and
Cybernetics Society. It provides an international forum for researchers and practitioners to report most recent 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 these fields 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 solicited,
including theories, methodologies, and emerging applications. Contributions to theory and practice, including but not limited to the following
technical areas, are invited.
