Top Research Topics at Systems, Man and Cybernetics?

  • Artificial intelligence (34.51%)
  • Control theory (12.52%)
  • Computer vision (11.02%)

Artificial intelligence, Control theory, Computer vision, Mathematical optimization and Pattern recognition are among the topics commonly tackled in the conference. The event connects research in Artificial intelligence with the related topic of Machine learning. Most of the works presented in the conference deals with Machine learning but it intersects with the subject of Data mining.

As a part of the event, discussions in Control theory involve topics like Control theory, Nonlinear system, Control system, Fuzzy control system and Adaptive control. Systems, Man and Cybernetics is mostly focused on Computer vision, specifically Image segmentation. Mathematical optimization research discussed connects with the study of Algorithm.

Presentations on Fuzzy logic include those discussing Fuzzy set, Fuzzy set operations, Fuzzy number, Defuzzification and Fuzzy classification. Systems, Man and Cybernetics focused on Fuzzy set operations research but expanded to cover Neuro-fuzzy. The study on Robot presented in Systems, Man and Cybernetics intersects with subjects under the field of Simulation.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Fuzzy identification of systems and its applications to modeling and control (16243 citations)
  • Textural Features for Image Classification (15831 citations)
  • ANFIS: adaptive-network-based fuzzy inference system (12072 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Systems, Man and Cybernetics:

The most cited publications focus largely on the fields of Artificial intelligence, Control theory, Mathematical optimization, Fuzzy logic and Pattern recognition. In addition to Artificial intelligence research, the most cited publications aim to explore topics under Machine learning, Data mining and Computer vision. The most cited papers address concerns in the field of Fuzzy set operations by exploring it in line with topics in Neuro-fuzzy which intersect with Defuzzification subjects.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Statistics
  • Law

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The topics of Combinatorics, Investment portfolio, Econometrics, Artificial intelligence and Microgrid are the focal point of discussions in Systems, Man and Cybernetics. In it, Class (biology) and Tree structure are investigated in conjunction with one another to address concerns in Combinatorics research. Systems, Man and Cybernetics addresses concerns in Investment portfolio which are intertwined with other disciplines, such as Conceptual model (computer science) and Bayesian probability.

The conference facilitates discussions on Econometrics that incorporate concepts from other fields like Trust network and Bayes' theorem. The Artificial intelligence works featured in the event incorporate elements from Point set registration, Plane (geometry) and Measurement theory. While work presented in it provided substantial information on Microgrid, it also covered topics in Profit (economics), Marginal cost, Robustness (computer science), Data integrity and Economic dispatch.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Toward Pre-Empted EV Charging Recommendation Through V2V-Based Reservation System (23 citations)
  • A Localized Event-Driven Resilient Mechanism for Cooperative Microgrid Against Data Integrity Attacks (10 citations)
  • Intelligent Controller for Energy Storage System in Grid-Connected Microgrid (9 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.


The top authors publishing at Systems, Man and Cybernetics (based on the number of publications) are:

  • MengChu Zhou (109 papers) absent at the last edition,
  • Saeid Nahavandi (82 papers) absent at the last edition,
  • Keith W. Hipel (61 papers) absent at the last edition,

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.


During the most recent 2021 edition, 78.57% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 0.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 0.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 33.33% of all publications and 66.67% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.


Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.


The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).


The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
