The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC2014) will be held
north on a 44 acre private island of Mission Bay. Paradise Point features comfortable bungalow-style
rooms amidst lush, tropical gardens, tranquil lagoons, and 1.5 miles of sandy beach next door to Sea
World. Paradise Point Resort & Spa offers a unique San Diego experience with a location that is
secluded, yet centrally situated. The airport, downtown San Diego, and top attractions including Old
Town, the San Diego Zoo, and Balboa Park are all just minutes away.
SMC2014 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 innovation and
development, summarize state-of-the-art, and exchange ideas and advances in all aspects of systems
science and engineering, human machine systems, and cybernetics.
SMC 2014 is dedicated to Norbert Wiener, the "Father of Cybernetics." In honor of the 120th
anniversary of his birth, the theme of the Conference is
From Norbert Wiener to the Cyber World
