Industrial Track

Industrial Track CFP 

The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC 2017) will be held in Banff Centre one of the most modern conference facility in North America, with majestic mountain view. SMC 2017 is the flagship conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. The theme of the conference will be Human Intelligence for Systems and Cybernetics. The conference will provide 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.


The Industrial Track provides an opportunity to fuse industry, academia, and government; it will bring together innovative thinkers - whether engineers, leaders, or researchers - to enable broader and deeper discussions of the sciences & technologies behind industrial applications & practices. The featured paper presentations, keynotes, panel discussions and exhibitions will foster multidisciplinary collaboration and push the limits of innovation, creating partnerships and a fusion of cutting-edge ideas that will drive solutions to shape the future.
