The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC2018) will be held at the unique Seagaia Convention Center, Miyazaki, Japan. SMC2018 is the flagship conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. The scope includes the field of Systems Science & Engineering, Human-Machine Systems and Cybernetics. It provides an 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 Advance has increasing importance in the creation of intelligent environments involving technologies interacting with humans to provide an enriching experience, and thereby improve our quality of life. The conference also includes modern technologies such as big data analysis, IoT (Internet of Things), cloud computing, and artificial Intelligence.

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 sucient 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 oral or poster sessions. All accepted papers which have been presented at SMC 2018 will be published in the conference proceedings on the IEEE Xplore.
