IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Magazine - January 2020 - 33

It was at WAC 2010 in Kobe, Japan, that I had the opportunity to fully appreciate Prof. Jamshidi's hard work for
WAC. While I was involved in the organization of the event
and obtained several grants from Japanese foundations and
companies to support the conference, Prof. Jamshidi handled all other aspects such as paper submissions, review
control, program schedule, and the intricate planning for
the reception and banquet. He has been doing these jobs
every two years since 1986, and we will continue to work
together since WAC is a biennial conference. With his inexhaustible energy and zest for work, one cannot help but
develop great admiration and affection for Prof. Jamshidi.
He is an invaluable asset for WAC committees.

followed this up by organizing the first SoSE conference in
the form of the 2006 IEEE/SMC International Conference on
System of Systems Engineering. He continued to organize
further iterations of the conference for the years 2010-2014.
This conference was called the System of Systems Engineering Conference from 2015 to 2017, but it has now been
renamed (effective with the 13th conference in 2018) the
Annual Conference on System of Systems Engineering.
Impact and Accomplishments in Other Forums
In large-scale system engineering, Prof. Jamshidi's first
publication was Large-Scale Systems Modeling and Control (North-Holland, 1983). This book, known as the "First
Textbook," was translated into five languages and used in
more than 55 nations. He then published two more
acclaimed books: Large-Scale Systems: Modeling, Control,
and Fuzzy Logic (Prentice Hall, 1996) and (with Dr. Manu
Malek-Zavarei) Time-Delay Systems: Analysis, Optimization and Applications (Elsevier Science, 1987). These
books are highly cited in Google Scholar. Prof. Jamshidi

Impact and Accomplishments in the IEEE
Prof. Jamshidi has made numerous contributions to the science and technology of large-scale complex systems. He
developed many new approaches to control system design.
It is little surprise that he was elevated to the grade of IEEE
Fellow in 1989 for his contributions to the theory and applications of large-scale systems and control system education.
Prof. Jamshidi has served the systems and control community in three Societies in the IEEE:
1) IEEE Control Systems Society
2) IEEE Robotics and Automation Society
3) SMCS.
He is the founding editor of IEEE Control Systems Magazine and was the vice president for Conference and Meetings of the SMCS. He is also the founding editor-in-chief of
IEEE Systems Journal. At SMCS, he organized the 2005
IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and
Cybernetics in Hawaii as the general chair. In his welcome
message, he stated:
We hope that this conference will render not only a
beautiful venue and scenery, but provide you a very
rewarding and innovative technical meeting where new

interests in Systems Engineering with emphasis on our
conference theme-System of
Systems Engineering-are discussed. IEEE SMCS has
always been a leader in systems engineering among all
fields of engineering, be it electrical, mechanical, aerospace,
and so on. We hope that the
contribution of the IEEE
SMCS and its thousands of
members would continue to
make a difference in systems
engineering, cybernetics and
human-machine systems. [1].
This message gives us deep
insights about his passion for SoSE
as he ushered in a new era of systems engineering in the IEEE and
thus pioneered the SoSE concept. He Prof.Yamakawa (left) and Prof. Jamshidi (center) with their spouses at WAC 2006.
