Martin Dresner, and Zhenji Zhang

A

new Technical Committee
(TC) on Logistics Informatics and Industrial Security
Systems (LIISS) was approved by the
IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics
Society (SMCS). The cochairs are Dr.
Runtong Zhang, Dr. Menggang Li, Dr.
Martin Dresner, and Dr. Zhenji Zhang.
Scope
The scope of the TC on LIISS includes
intelligent logistics, smart cities,
smart supply chains, electronic commerce, smart buildings, the Internet
of Things and big data, energy security, information security engineering, logistics security engineering,
safe information theory, environment
security, and security engineering.
Vision
The vision of the TC on LIISS is to be
recognized as the leading TC for the
advancement of the theory and application of the synergetic integration of
LIISS.
Mission
The mission of the TC on LIISS is
to serve its members and the Society at large by promoting the theory
and practice of LIISS. This will be
accomplished through conferences,
workshops, publications, and other
activities that contribute to the professional needs of its members.
Activity Plan
After several discussions, the four
cochairs agreed that the TC on LIISS
will organize activities to recruit
approximately 100 people from IEEE
and the SMCS to serve its members
and the Society by organizing international conferences and a summer
school on LIISS.

New SMCS Technical
Committee on
Logistics Informatics
and Industrial
Security Systems
The TC on LIISS organized the
2015 International Conference on
Logistics, Informatics, and Service
Science (LISS) and the 2015 International Conference on Industrial
Economics and Industrial Security
(IEIS). LISS 2015 and IEIS 2015 were
hosted by the International Center
for Informatics Research, the Center
for Industrial Security Research, and
the School of Economics and Management of Beijing Jiaotong University, China, in cooperation with the
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya;
BarcelonaTech, Spain; and the University of Reading, United Kingdom,
and held 27-29 July 2015 in Barcelona, Spain, with satellite sessions
in Beijing, China. About 500 papers
were submitted, and approximately
150 researchers, including both IEEE
and SMCS members, attended the
conferences.
Summer School
The TC on LIISS held a summer
school in late August 2015. The sponsors were the International Center
for Informatics Research, the Center
for Industrial Security Research,
the School of Economics and Management of Beijing Jiaotong University, and the Universitat Politècnica
de Catalunya. Teachers and Ph.D. students from Beijing Jiaotong UniverJu ly 2015

sity, the Universitat Politècnica de
Catalunya, the University of Reading,
the University of Liverpool, the University of Macau, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Hong Kong
Polytechnic University attended.
Recruiting IEEE Members
The TC on LIISS will inspire our colleagues, students, and authors from
LISS 2015 and IEIS 2015 to join the
IEEE, SMCS, and the TC on LIISS.
LIISS at IEEE SMC 2015
The TC on LIISS encouraged its
members to attend the 2015 IEEE
International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC)
and will organize a delegation to
attend every year.
