Extended CFP and Submission Instructions

Conference Overview:

We invite you to participate in the 2nd IEEE Conference on Norbert Wiener in the 21st Century, to be held from July 13-15, 2016, at the University of Melbourne. The conference will focus on opportunities and threats presented by advances in cognitive computing, in the context of Wiener’s technical work and his concerns regarding technology and society.

Norbert Wiener was a mathematician, philosopher, scientist and engineer whose pioneering work in mathematics, computer science, systems control, biology and engineering led to cybernetics (the origin of  “cyberspace” and “cyborgs”). This conference follows the successful inaugural conference in Boston, June 2014.

We invite paper submissions that consider Wiener’s work from perspectives across applied, hard, and social sciences, as well as the humanities, fine arts, and professional/industry practice. Conference topics will include:

  • Cognitive computing in theory and practice.
  • Wiener’s fields of work (cybernetics, information theory, philosophy, life sciences, interval computation, fuzzy sets, Brownian motion, analysis under uncertainty…).
  • Wiener’s societal concerns (information ethics, innovation and economic development, robots and work, cyber warfare and crime, science fiction as social commentary, cybernetics and literature, art and design…)

Key Dates:

  • 28 Feb 2016: Deadline for special session proposals, full papers for peer review (6 pages, IEEE format), and abstracts for presentation only (2 pages)
  • 28 March 2016: Confirmation of acceptance.
