The IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC) provides an international forum for researchers and practitioners to report up-to-the-minute innovation and development, summarize the state-of-the-art, and exchange ideas and advances in all aspects of systems science and engineering, human machine systems, and cybernetics. The conference theme is: Big Data Analytics for Human-Centric Systems Humans, software, and hardware are routinely combined to form systems to meet needs of ever-increasing scope and application. Pervasive sensors distributed across a range of temporal and geographic scales now make unprecedented data sets available. These data can be used to understand and support how systems function, how they can reflect human needs and capabilities, and how they can be improved. Considerable barriers still exist to harnessing these data to address the complexity of real-world applications and simulations. Human systems need well-considered analytic approaches that reflect an understanding of human cognitive work. Software and hardware systems need architectures and tools that are efficient, fault-tolerant and well-suited to human needs. This conference seeks to engage the SMC community to address these issues and to craft new discoveries and applications that will shape how society views and uses big data.
