Effective use of automatic control was realized in 1940s, and has taken a high level of development due to WWII. Creating intelligent control (smart automation) has been the topic of interest since 1980s. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has played a key role in the design and applications of intelligent control. This has created several components of AI and expanded the application sphere. Man-machine system has been an important and a sustained area of research since long and several systems have been developed to assist and work with humans. This area encompasses several disciplines of Science and Engineering. New directions and applications of man machine systems are being understood and documented. They vary in capabilities from an automated car to robotic attachment to disabled, from robot assisted surgery to imbedded bio micro-systems for hospital patients and from simple avionic travel aids to the expanding areas of space explorations. The man-machine interface has been accepted as an inevitable, complex and as a very useful area of research.

This International Conference provides a forum for presentation and discussion of the state of current research in Man-Machine Systems Engineering. It plays an important role in providing a platform for young researchers for mutual exchange of knowledge towards improving the academic, scientific and higher research programs.
