of the art and prompting research,
development, and innovative applications of IWCD. The mission is to bring
together researchers and designers
and provide a venue for the TC members and the community at large in the
area of IWCD to exchange ideas and
results, to identify new research fields
and technology trends, and to explore
opportunities for research collaboration and/or partnerships.
The TC currently includes more
than 80 members from 20 different
countries. The first meeting of the
new TC was held during the 2015
IEEE International Conference on
Systems, Ma n, a nd Cyber netics
(SMC) in Hong Kong in October.
We discussed several initiatives to
promote the TC. First, we intend to
launch an annual international conference on IWCD, which will be the
main conference of the TC, where
all TC members and interested people can meet and present their work.
Moreover, the TC will foster the organization of special issues in top-level
journals, special sessions in IEEE
conferences (specifically SMC),
industry workshops to facilitate
academic and industry knowledge
transfer, and participation in standardization bodies related to IWCD.
