President's Message

by Edward Tunstel

O

ne of the strengths of the
IEEE System s, Ma n, a nd
Cybernetics Society (SMCS)
is its community of enthusiastic and
dedicated volunteers. Volunteers
are essential to the SMCS and ultimately enable the Society to deliver
benefits to members, the engineering community, and humanity. Our
members advance technology by
focusing on traditional subdisciplines of systems analysis and synthesis, human-systems integration
and human factors, and cybernetics-enabling intelligent systems. In
addition, members are increasingly
engaged in today's trending technologies and methodologies for solving
complex engineering and societal
problems. As relevant strengths of
traditional and trending technologies continue to combine, ultimately converging within the scope of
SMCS fields of interest and including transdisciplinary problems, the
need persists for volunteers with
varied backgrounds and interests.
People with diverse backgrounds
and thought leadership skills are needed for important roles in SMCS governance as well as in developing productive relationships with other IEEE
Societies, including those involving the
production of joint technical offerings
of consistent quality. To stay ahead
of the pace of change and development, we need more involvement from
members who are students and young
professionals. The SMCS can benefit
greatly from these members' professors, both recent and current. Our
members in industry have a critical
role to play as well in grounding SMCS
technical activities in practical applications and guiding those activities
so they can be used to solve industrial
