Cyberization is an emerging trend in which numerous cyber entities in cyberspace will exist in cyber world and cyber-conjugated physical, social and mental worlds. Cybermatics is a holistic field for the systematic study of all cyber related properties, functions, technologies and applications in the coming cyber-enabled new worlds.


Cybermatics refers to the scientific and systematic study of new phenomena, behaviors, properties and practices in the rapidly emerging cyberspace and cyber-enabled worlds, including digital cyber world and cyber-conjugated physical, social and mental worlds. This technical committee aims to establish and promote this new trans-disciplinary study by providing a common platform for scientists and researchers to share their experiences, problems and solutions in various cyber-related areas centered around cyber entities in cyberspace, their properties and functions, as well as their cybernetic relations and conjugations with entities in physical, social and mental spaces.

Cybermatics study mainly covers five aspects: (1) Cyber Entity in Cyberspace, which addresses the theory and methodology of properties and functions for cyberspace and cyber entities; (2) Cyber-Physical Conjugation, which is primarily concerned with how physical entities are generally conjugated with cyber entities; (3) Cyber-Social Conjugation, which is concerned with how social entities including human social organizations and economic activities are conjugated with cyber entities; (4) Cyber-Mental Conjugation is about how to utilize cyber entities and cybermatic technologies to study mental activities, and design cyber-mental entities that understand and serve humans; (5) Cyber-Physical-Social-Mental Integration is for the combinations of the cyber, physical, social, and mental entities in CPSM spaces.


Cybermatics, as a holistic field for systematic study of cyber-enabled worlds, unleashes a new trans-disciplinary research requiring the involvement and support of a wide range of research communities due to overlapping and interrelating areas and trends. The Technical Committee on Cybermatics for Cyber-enabled Worlds aims at cybermatics research aspects in the cyber entities in the cyberspace, interconnection, interaction, intelligence and inter relationships with other entities in the cyber-physical-social-mental space for establishing and promoting this new trans-disciplinary study. There are important issues that needs to be addressed for cybermatics to build ubiquitous and integrated Cyber-enabled Worlds, including the theory and methodology of the properties and functions of cyber entities, the conjugation of cyber-physical entities (e.g., components, networks, communication, resources, and control), the conjugation of cyber-social entities (e.g., attributes, relationships, behaviors, education and management), the conjugation of cyber-mental entities (e.g., brain informatics, neuroscience, cognition, and affectivity), and the integration CPSM entities (e.g., applications, organization, and interrelationships). This Technical Committee will passionately dedicate to address these issues, and develop the techniques about cybermatics for cyber-enabled worlds, such as sensor networks, context-awareness, cyber mapping and representation of in conventional physical, social and mental spaces, behaviour analysis and modeling of social entities, and brain informatics.
