Welcome to SMC

Systems, Man, & Cybernetics Society Chicago Chapter


The Systems, Man & Cybernetics Society (SMC), Chicago Chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) serves engineering and computer professionals in the twelve counties of the greater Chicago area. As part of the Chicago Section, the SMC Chapter provides a local interface to the worldwide network of the IEEE. In addition, the SMC Chapter organizes technical presentations, social events, and networking opportunities  of interest. This society focuses on: integration of the theories of communication, control, cybernetics, stochastics, optimization and system structure towards the formulation of a general theory of systems; development of systems engineering technology including problem definition methods, modeling, and simulation, methods of system experimentation, human factors engineering data and methods, systems design techniques and test and evaluation methods; and application of the above at both hardware and software levels to the analysis and design of biological, ecological, socio-economic, social service, computer information, and operational man-machine systems.
