Topics/Call fo Papers

5th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference
April 4 - 11, 2011
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Conference Theme

The theme of the IEEE International Systems Conference is Engineering of Complex Systems, to include Systems-of-systems, Systems Engineering, Systems Integration, and Systems Thinking.


The IEEE Systems Council facilitates interactions among communities of interest on system-level problems and applications. System-level thinking is essential in the world today, not only for technical systems but also for society at large. The Council addresses the discipline of systems engineering, including the issues and complexities of system-level and system-of-systems applications, focusing on the total systems effectiveness of complex integrated systems of national and global significance.

Conference Objectives

This conference seeks to create an interactive forum for the advancement of the practice of systems engineering across the multiple disciplines and specialty areas associated with the engineering of complex systems. The conference will provide a venue for systems engineering practitioners, managers, researchers, and educators to exchange innovative concepts, ideas, applications, and lessons learned

We invite authors to submit an extended abstract of 3-4 pages in length. The
extended abstract should summarize the scope of the paper and the primary
results and findings, emphasizing new advances, theories and/or applications
so that the program committee will be able to understand the originality and
the value of the work. Abstracts should be submitted electronically to the
EDAS Website at Please submit to IEEE SysCon 2010. To
simplify abstract slotting to Tracks, authors will be limited to selecting
one topic only from the listing above. If the abstract does not fit any of
the topic areas listed above, there will be an “other” option. For
comprehensive information, please reference the conference web site at
