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, reliability, safety, security, resilience in SoS;
  • 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);
  • Industry 4.0;
  • Healthcare (e-health, digital hospitals);
  • Environment;
  • Agriculture 4.0;
  • Cyber-physical systems and IoT: engineering issues;
  • Defense;
  • Aerospace (smart-material based structures);
  • Driverless cars, connected vehicle systems;
  • Modeling and simulation of SoSE applications;
  • SoSE education;
  • Systems policy and governance.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in a special issue of the journal Systems Engineering.

Important dates:

  • Paper submission: February 26 –> March 4, 2018 23:59:59 CET (firm deadline)
  • Notification of paper acceptance: April 30, 2018
  • Final paper submission: May 15, 2018
