Cybernetics (SMC 2016)
The 2016 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC 2016) will be
held at Hotel Intercontinental Budapest. SMC 2016 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. SMC2016 is dedicated to the Hungarian born John von Neumann “a Pioneer of
Modern Computer Science”.
Deadline for papers submission: April 15, 2016.
SMC Technical Committee on: “Interactive and Wearable Computing and Devices”
Interactive devices refer to any physical and tangible entity with which both human users and other
devices or machines can interact. This new SMC Technical Committee (TC) focuses on those
devices that human users can wear, such as smart watches, health monitoring electronics, smart
glasses, head mounted stereo display, exoskeletons, body worn sensors, etc.
