IEEE – 13th System of Systems Engineering Conference 

SoSE 2018


JUNE, 19-22, 2018
Sorbonne Universités – Jussieu Campus



The 13th Annual System of Systems Engineering (SoSE) conference will be held on the Jussieu campus of Sorbonne Universities, Paris, France on June 19th-22nd, 2018.  SoSE is the main conference on Systems of Systems, defined as complex systems created by the systematic and dynamic assembly of various interacting sub-systems. The conference theme is “Systems of systems Management and Control: Frontiers between cyber, physical, and social systems”. Papers on theory, methodology, tools and applications of System of Systems Engineering in science, technology, industry, and education are welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • System management and engineering;
  • Interoperability and system architecture;
  • System of systems integration;
  • Distributed and swarm robotics;
  • Multi-scale and multi-physics system modeling;
  • Risk analysis, safety, security, resilience;
  • Emergence;
  • Decision-making;
  • Interaction with humans;
  • Cooperation and coordination in competitive multi-systems;
  • Distributed computing and control.

Applications include:

  • Transportation (multimodal networks, mobile robotics, automated platoons);
  • Critical infrastructures (structural health monitoring, smart grids, smart cities);
  • Manufacturing (factories of future, Industrial Internet of things);
  • Healthcare (e-health, digital hospitals);
  • Environment;
  • Cyber-physical systems;
  • Defense;
  • Aerospace (smart-material based structures);
  • Driverless cars, connected vehicle systems;
  • SoSE education.

Papers should be four to six pages in length, in standard two-column IEEE Conference Proceedings format. We will also accept three-page poster papers. Invitations will be made to the authors of the best papers to submit an extended version of papers to journals or book chapters for the CRC Taylor & Francis Books Series on SoSE.

Important dates:

  • Special session proposals: 15th November, 2017
  • Paper submission: 5th February, 2018
  • Notification of paper acceptance: 10th April, 2018
  • Final paper submission: 15th May, 2018
