T

he phrase "If I have seen further, it is only because I have
stood on the shoulders of
giants" is attributed to Sir Isaac Newton. To paraphrase, we of the present generation see further thanks to
the insights of those who have come
before us. To make progress building on the work of earlier generations, we need the contributions of
our high-achieving contemporaries
who lead us to further discoveries
that enhance our understanding
and enable the development of new
results to make the world better for
those in the days to come.
Scanning the previous issues of
IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Magazine reveals that the promise to celebrate excellence among us
is being fulfilled by publishing articles that focus on the achievements
of individuals whose work inf luenced specific areas of our field.
The July 2018 issue included a tribute
column celebrating the life of Lotfi
A. Zadeh, father of fuzzy logic, who
recently passed away. Thank you to
the panel of prominent members of
our community, led by Prof. Mo Jamshdi, for a job well done.
Many of our members have distinguished themselves by innovative
contributions in academic and technical areas. Thanks to the leadership
