Systems, Man & Cybernetics - January 2016 - 5

◆ expanding the outreach of the

Society to the broader engineering community by improving collaboration and partnership with
related IEEE Societies and other
professional organizations, such as
the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, the
International Council on Systems
Engineering, and the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society
◆ st reng t hen i ng col laborat ion
with industry and enhancing
the industrial presence in our
activities and Society leadership
through establishing a special
Advisory Committee of Industrial
Leaders and promoting new publications and conferences with a
focus on application
◆ increasing the role and impact
of our technical committees and

local Chapters as the main links
between the Board of Governors
and SMCS members through
their active pa r ticipation i n
the Societ y decision-mak ing
processes and governance (in
areas such as editor-in-chief
and associate editor appointments and discussion of new
conferences, publications, and
other initiatives).
The history of SMCS as a vibrant, self-organizing system that
has been continuously improving
and creating new value (note, for
example, the role of the SMCS as
the incubator for the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, the
IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, and the IEEE Systems
Council) has proven that we have
the potential to achieve these goals

and to further advance, optimize,
and reinvent ourselves.
I would like to express my gratitude to and sincere appreciation for
my predecessor, Ljiljana Trajkovic,
for her outstanding and visionary
leadership as the 2014-2015 Society
president and to outgoing ExCom
members Michael Berthold and Irv
Engelson for their dedicated and exemplary service to the SMCS, IEEE,
and engineering community.
The strength of our Society is in
the collective efforts of thousands
of volunteers. Looking ahead, I am
grateful for your trust and support.
I plan to work diligently with the
Board of Governors, ExCom, and all
of you to promote the Society's values and serve our membership.
