Cybermatics Summit

The 2019 IEEE Cybermatics Summit on Cyber Science and Engineering


Time: Wednesday July 15, 17:10 - 18:30

Location: Capitonl North



Cyber entities and Cyber-enabled worlds are forming and expanding into new fields named Cyber-X such as Cyber-Physical, Cyber-Social, Cyber-Mental, etc., which can be envisioned as essential multidisciplinary studies. Cybermatics is such a holistic field for the systematic study of cyber entities and cyber-enabled worlds. Cyberization is the process for conjugations of digital cyber entities with numerous entities in conventional worlds with a suite of cybermatic theories and technologies covering cyberspace, cybersecurity, cyberphysics, cyber intelligence, cyber life, etc. Cyber science and engineering are highly in demand in response to an ever-increasing diversity of synthesized cyber entities and connected cyber-enabled worlds. This Summit is to explore and discuss key research issues, technologies, challenges, and future directions of cyber science and engineering in cybermatics.

Jianhua Ma is a professor in the Faculty of Computer and Information Sciences, Hosei University, Tokyo, Japan. He served as the Chair of Digital Media Department of Hosei University in 2011-2012. His research interests include ubiquitous computing, social computing, wearable technology, IoT, smart things, and cyber intelligence. He has been devoted to the research on Hyper World and Cyber World (CW) since 1996. He first proposed Ubiquitous Intelligence (UI) towards Smart World (SW), which he envisioned in 2004, and was featured in the ID People Magazine in 2005. He has conducted several unique CW-related projects including the Cyber Individual (Cyber-I) to explore cyber life and individual-like intelligent artifacts. He has published more than 300 papers and delivered over 30 keynote speeches. He is a co-founder of three IEEE Congresses on ‘Smart World’, ‘Cybermatics’ and ‘Cyber Science and Technology’ as well as IEEE Conferences on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC), Pervasive Intelligence and Computing (PICom), Advanced and Trusted Computing (ATC), Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing (DASC), Cyber Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom), Internet of Things (iThings), and Internet of People (IoP). He is currently the chair of IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Cybermatics, and a founding chair of IEEE CIS Technical Committee on Smart World.
