Call For Papers

We invite you to participate in the 2nd IEEE Conference on Norbert Wiener in the 21st Century. 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.
