Dear Colleagues,

The IEEE SMC Society Technical Committee on Robotics and Intelligent
Sensing is organizing special sessions for the upcoming subject
conference to be held in Anchorage, Alaska, USA, October 9-12, 2011
with the theme of "Cyber-Physical Systems and Society," For details
about IEEE SMC 2011, please refer to http://www.smc2011.org/.

The following highlights apply.

Special Sessions on Robotics
Expressions of interest in contributing to the Special Sessions on
Robotics should be sent to Professor Hong Zhang (zhang at cs.ualberta.ca)
with a 50-word tentative abstract by FEBRUARY 10, 2011.  The
associated deadline for full length papers in the Special Sessions on
Robotics is APRIL 1, 2011.

Regular Papers on Robotics
The IEEE SMC 2011 Call for Papers (available at
http://www.smc2011.org/) includes topics on Robotic & Autonomous
Systems, Human-Robot Interaction, and Social Robotics.  The submission
deadline for full length regular papers is MARCH 1, 2011.

3rd Annual Workshop on Brain-Machine Interfaces
Co-sponsored jointly in 2011 by the IEEE SMC Society, IEEE CAS
Society, and IEEE EMB Society, this workshop calls for full-paper
contributions by APRIL 1, 2011 covering theoretical developments and
practical or industrial applications, especially papers related to the
BMI Workshop Theme: "Problems and Solutions in Building Real-World BMI
Systems."  Participating authors need not be experts in BMI itself,
but experts in systems engineering, human-machine systems, emerging
cybernetics, and/or circuits and systems areas that can be, or are
needed to be, applied to practical BMI system implementations.

Conference Theme and Plenary Speakers
Prominent speakers presented by IEEE SMC 2011 include the following:

- Prof. Thomas C. Henderson, University of Utah / NSF
  "Innate Theories in Cognitive Agents: The Symmetry Engine"

- Prof. Jose del R. Millan, EPFL
  "Brain-Robot Interaction"

- Dr. Robert Ambrose, NASA JSC
  "Humans & Humanoids"
