as general chair, program chair, or
various positions for many international and domestic conferences.
He is currently the associate editor
of IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy
Systems, and IEEE Access; a subject editor (electrical engineering)
of Journal of the Chinese Institute
of Engineers; and the editor-inchief of International Journal of
Fuzzy Systems.
Su's main research area deals
with intelligent control and intelli-

gent systems, with the most significant contribution being to provide
various learning analyses for computational intelligence techniques.
Those findings have enriched the
learning foundation for computational intelligence. Su showed his
analytic capability by providing several simple but effective means for
computational intelligence.
Intelligent control is another
research paradigm to which he has
contributed. He has various findings in learning control techniques

Hiroshima Chapter
Receives Outstanding
Chapter Award

T

he Hiroshima Chapter received the IEEE Outstanding
Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMCS) Chapter Award
for having consistently shown outstanding leadership
a nd ser v ice to it s
members. This Chapter was established
in November 2005,
and since then, it has
held i nt er n a t ion a l
workshops on sof t
computing, domestic
workshops for young
researchers, and lectures on the latest
technologies.
