ICMLC has become the premier international conference in the
field of Machine Learning and Cybernetics. At ICMLC's annual
conference, researchers and practitioners from around the world gather
together to interact, to inform, and to inspire. Leading international 
researchers, including leaders from IEEE, especially the IEEE Systems,
Man, and Cybernetics Society, will serve as Tutorial and Keynote
