********************************* IEEE CYBCONF-2017 CFP *********************************

The 3rd IEEE International Conference on Cybernetics

(CYBCONF-2017) /

Exeter, England, UK, 21-23 June 2017

Sponsored by
IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMC).

The biennial International Conference on Cybernetics (CYBCONF) provides a premier international forum for researchers and practitioners to report the latest innovations, summarize the state-of-the-art, and exchange ideas and advances in all aspects of Cybernetics. Apart of the main track it includes special sessions and plenary talks by invited eminent speakers.

CYBCONF-2017 is organized by University of Exeter, sponsored by IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMC), and supported by IEEE SMC Technical Committees on Cybermatics for Cyber-enabled Worlds, Awareness Computing, Intelligent Industrial Systems; and Distributed Intelligent Systems. CYBCONF-2017 will be hosted in Exeter, the capital city of Devon and provides the county with a central base for education, medicine, religion, commerce and culture. The city is also home to the magnificent Exeter Cathedral, which dates back to Norman times. Exeter is also ideally placed to base a trip to branch out visiting places such as the famous Dartmoor National Park and the unspoilt beaches of the North and South Devon coastlines.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers to CYBCONF-2017. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, IEEE SMC Magazine, Evolving Systems, and Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications (PPNA).
