Opportunities and Synergies Between the IEEE Council

his article describes several
opportunities and synergies
between the IEEE Council
on Radio-Frequency Identification
(CRFID) and IEEE Systems, Man, and
Cybernetics Society (SMCS) to initiate a roadmap study and working
plan for a new model of support and
collaboration among IEEE Societies
and Councils in the future. We hope
this will stimulate more communication and discussion for deep and effective coordination and collaboration
among IEEE Councils and Societies.
The IEEE SMCS has always played
a vital and leadership role in promoting and supporting new technical com-
munities for new and cutting-edge
technologies within IEEE. Excellent
examples include the IEEE SMCS participating as the founding member for
the establishment of multiple IEEE
Councils that are now IEEE Societies:
the IEEE Robotics and Automation
Council was founded on 13 December
Digital Object Identifier 10.1109/MSMC.2021.3062892
Date of current version: 20 April 2021

1983 and transitioned into the IEEE
Robotics and Automation Society in
1987 and the IEEE Neural Networks
Council was founded on 17 November
1989, transitioned into the IEEE Neural Networks Society in 2001, and was
renamed the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society in 2003.
The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society is now the leading professional organization in the field of
robotics in the world today, while
the IEEE Computational Intelligence
Society is an extremely influential
and successful professional organization in the field of artificial intelligence. Furthermore, these Societies are now among the largest in the
IEEE family, and the IEEE SMCS is
very proud of its continuous willingness and dedication to fostering and
helping new technical groups in their
efforts to advance technology for humanity, which is the mission of IEEE
as the world's largest technical professional organization.
The IEEE SMCS is also a founding
member Society of the IEEE CRFID,

created as the newest IEEE Council
in 2015 and focusing on the theory and
practice of radio-frequency identification (RFID)-related systems, with a
mission of " bridging the physical and
the digital via a human-centered approach. " As cloud and edge computing
are attracting great research interests
and changing our daily life, and with
the booming of the Internet of Things
(IoT) and Internet of Minds, RFID and
related technologies are becoming
more important and ubiquitous. They
provide the enabling technologies for
all intelligent systems, especially cybernetics-based intelligent systems.
So, there is an urgent need to realign and enhance the collaborations
between the IEEE SMCS and CRFID,
facilitate the development of relevant
technologies and industries, and fulfill the mission of IEEE, i.e., foster
technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
To this end, we have prepared this
article on the opportunities and synergies between the IEEE CRFID and
SMCS to initiate a roadmap study and
working plan for a new model of support and collaboration among IEEE
Societies and Councils in the future.
A similar effort has been launched
between the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society and CRFID
[1]. We hope that these initiatives will
stimulate an increased communication and discussion for deeper and
more effective coordination and collaborations among IEEE Councils
and Societies.
An Overview of the
IEEE CRFID and IEEE SMCS
CRFID
The IEEE Technical Activities Board
currently encompasses 39 Societies and seven Councils. The purpose
of an IEEE Council is to provide " a
