The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC2014) will be held at the luxurious Paradise Point Resort and Spa, 1404 Vacation Road, San Diego, located on a 44 acre private island of Mission Bay. 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. 

SMC2014 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

Papers related to the conference theme are especially solicited, including theories, methodologies, and emerging applications. Contributions on theory and practice, including but not limited to the technical areas as listed below, are invited.

SMC2014 has 5 categories of contributions: regular session papers, special session papers, short papers, demo papers, and posters. Short papers and demo papers are intended to promote applied research and applications, and facilitate collaboration between industrial and academic members of the SMC community. 

Paper submissions are also invited for the 4th Workshop on Brain Machine Interfaces Systems and the 2014 IEEE International Workshop on Intelligent Energy Systems (IWIES2014) to be held concurrently with SMC2014. 

The deadline for initial submission of papers and posters has been extended to April 21 28, 2014. All contributions are to be submitted electronically through the Conference website, and will be refereed by the Program Committee for originality, significance, quality and clarity. 

Contributions covering theoretical developments and practical applications, including but not limited to the following technical areas, are invited:
