SMC 2011

The 2011 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (IEEE SMC 2011) provides an international forum for researchers and practitioners to report the latest innovations, summarize the state-of-the-art, and exchange ideas and advances in all aspects of systems engineering, human-machine systems, and emerging cybernetics.


The conference theme is Cyber-Physical Systems and Society. This theme establishes a focus on practical applications of theory and methodologies leading to tangible systems, products, and service technologies that feature coordination between computational and physical elements. At the core of cyber-physical systems is coordinated computation, communication, control, and sensing with actuation and adaptability of physical systems. Human factors are magnified at the societal interface to resonate in phase with IEEE SMC Society fields of interest. Advances in these fields are expected to enable cyber-physical systems in multiple industry sectors and in the home. Current advancements addressing technical and societal challenges of cyber-physical systems will take center stage at IEEE SMC 2011.


The Organizing Committee is proud to announce the participation of prominent plenary/keynote speakers to address topics of importance to the IEEE SMC Society.

The Organizing Committee is also proud to feature the 3rd annual Workshop on Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) co-sponsored jointly this year by the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, and IEEE Engineering, Medicine and Biology Society. Contributors to this featured workshop need not be experts in BMI itself, but experts in systems engineering, human-machine systems, emerging cybernetics, and/or circuits and systems areas that would enable realization of real-world BMI systems. BMI is well aligned with the conference theme and, as a featured workshop, attendance is open to all interest conference registrants. For more important details, please see the BMI Workshop page


The venue for IEEE SMC 2011 is the Hilton Anchorage hotel, located in the heart of Downtown Anchorage just a 10 minute drive from the airport, one block from the Alaska Railroad Depot, and within walking distance of over 100 dining options. Anchorage, with "Big Wild Life" as its trademark slogan, is surrounded by spectacular mountains offering a unique combination of wilderness and modern city life, while also serving as a world-class meeting and convention destination. During the fall season its temperate maritime climate is quite similar to springtime in San Francisco, California.
