Our Goal

The primary objective of the Environmental Sensing, Networking, and Decision Making (ESND) technical committee is to bring together specialists from the all areas of “Human-machine Interface systems”, supporting the development of human-machine interface technologies in relation to multi-scale sensing, networking and control that can smooth out data acquisition, data communication, data and knowledge storage, data mining and knowledge discovery, and data and knowledge dissemination and utilization. We will provide forums for exchanging ideas among researchers and engineers through scientific events.
