Welcome to 2005 IEEE SMC International Conference
– HAWAII 05
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome each and every
one of you to the 2005 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man,
and Cybernetics. The plans for this conference began back in 2002 when
it was decided to come to the beautiful island of Hawaii.
at SMC Society have begun a new approach for our annual conference, i.e.,
soliciting full papers only. We (SMC and Hawaii) attracted 949 full papers,
including 44 special session proposals. The program committee sent all
the papers, unsolicited and special ones, to 3 reviewers each in a span
of 12 weeks time. Over 2500 individual reviews were uploaded into the
web site of the conference. The program that you are witnessing here is
the result of diligent work of many wonderful volunteers to help run this
international conference. On the top of that list are our two Program
Co-Chairs Dr. Edward Tunstel, Jr. of NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory/Caltech
and Professor Gary Anderson of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
I sincerely thank the untiring efforts of both colleagues and their program
committee of over 200 members.
We hope that this conference will render not only a beautiful
venue and scenery, but provide you a very rewarding and innovative technical
meeting where new interests in Systems Engineering with emphasis on our
Conference Theme – System of Systems Engineering are discussed.
IEEE SMC has always been a leader in Systems Engineering among all fields
of engineering, be it electrical, mechanical, aerospace, etc. We hope
that the contribution of the IEEE SMC and its thousands of members would
continue to make a difference in systems engineering, cybernetics and
