Other events beyond the regular technical sessions will enrich the meeting.
Please also consider contributing to the special sessions and workshops that will be organized. Some of these are newly proposed. Some are becoming a tradition. One of our great successes has been the Workshop on Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) Systems , now at its 13th edition. With the support of IEEE Future Directions we also organize the third Workshop on Telepresence.
There will also be a Forum of Women in Engineering, a Forum on Future Directions and our traditional Presidents’ Forum. A Joint SMCS-INCOSE panel: ‘Seeing and Building the Future of Systems Engineering’ is also confirmed, with participation of the top executives in INCOSE and SMC Society.
We will have a small on-site exhibition and a larger Virtual Exhibition this year. There will be also some tracks that will be held online only. So, though we are back to in-person attendance, SMC 2023 will have a virtual component. We encourage in-person participation in Maui, but at the same time, authors with travel restrictions, will be approved for on-line participation in the virtual tracks. We will transmit live the keynotes, tutorials, and some of the sessions, in real time and with recordings. There are many benefits of being able to attend a conference in person, among the top being the ability to interact better with fellow researchers, to network, and establish collaborations, in an environment that is conducive to detachment from routine activities and immersion in science and technology, that fosters creativity. Nonetheless, travel and health considerations may prevent in-person author attendance, and our policy will be to grant paper presentation online. Our aim is to get the best papers, and do the best to accommodate the authors to attend in their best way for them. On-line non-authors can register without a special approval.
For authors who do not yet have publishable results but want to present work in progress, applications, and new projects that have recently received funding, and to facilitate early feedback and foster collaborations, as well as to allow invited speakers to summarize their talks, we will accept two-page abstracts, which will be published in the on-line conference proceedings available to registrants.
