As name suggests the SMCS works in the field of Development of systems engineering technology including problem definition methods, modelling, and simulation, methods of system experimentation, human factors engineering, data and methods, systems design techniques and test and evaluation methods.

It also covers Integration of the theories of communication, control, cybernetics, stochastic, optimization, and system structure towards the formulation of a general theory of systems. SMCS also focus on application at hardware and software levels to the analysis and design of biological, ecological, socio-economic, social service, computer information, and operational man-machine systems .


The vision of the Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society is to be recognized as the world leading society for the advancement of theory and application in systems science and engineering, human-machine systems, and cybernetics.

The mission of the Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society is to serve the interests of its members and the community at large by promoting the theory, practice, and interdisciplinary aspects of systems science and engineering, human-machine systems, and cybernetics. It is accomplished through conferences, publications, and other activities that contribute to the professional needs of its members.

The following fundamental values provide the foundation for all SMC activities:
Membership: Maximize the value of being a member.
Professionalism: Advance knowledge and professional development.
Excellence: Deliver high quality and relevant services and products.
Integrity: Act with honesty and fairness.
Collaboration: Achieve results and excellence through teamwork.
Communication: Promote honest and transparent interactions.
Diversity: Embrace diversity of members and their ideas.
Empowerment: Empower volunteers and value their contributions.
Equality: Provide equal opportunities to all members.

SMC Society maintains the highest standard of professionalism and technical competency.
We at Bombay Section try to promote the growth of the Society by conducting various Workshops, Seminars, Distinguished Lecturer Program  which benefits the Students,  Members ,industry persons and society at large.  The Society offers members the opportunity to receive peer-reviewed publications including the IEEE Transactions on SMC, opportunities to attend the annual IEEE International Conference on SMC and other events, and local professional networking opportunities in 40+ international chapters. This Society is a sponsoring society of the IEEE Biometrics CouncilIEEE Nanotechnology CouncilIEEE Systems Council, and IEEE Technology Management Council.  Dr. Narendra Bawane – Nagpur is chair for this Chapter and can be contacted for any information.
