Systems, Man & Cybernetics - October 2015 - 7

tellers over the past two years and
to Goutam Chakraborty for serving
as a backup Society teller and stepping in when it was necessary. Our
new Society website (http://ieeesmc.
org/) contains the latest information
regarding all aspects of the Society's operations. Thanks to SMCS
Past President William A. Gruver
for his tireless responses to numerous requests for website updates,
and to the staff of D2 Creative for
almost instantaneous postings of
the Society material.
Over the past two years, SMCS
formally joined the IEEE Standards
Association and participated in a
large number of IEEE initiatives
and projects: Big Data, Brain, Cloud
Computing, Digital Sense, Internet

of Things, and Smart Grid. Society
representatives participated in the
governing bodies of the Biometrics
Council, Nanotechnology Council,
Council on RFID, Society on Social
Implications of Technology, Systems
Council, and Women in Engineering.
Other SMCS representatives served
on Steering Committees of a number
of publications that we cosponsor:
IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica
Sinica, IEEE Press, IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing, and
IEEE Transactions on Big Data.
As part of our funding for future
initiatives, we have allocated funding for the Humanitarian Initiative:
Smart Village in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
A contribution is also planned for
the IEEE History Initiative. I thank

new SMCS President Dimitar Filev
for his support in planning for our
future initiatives.
I look forward to seeing many
of you as authors and presenters at
the Systems, Man, and Cybernetics
Conference to be held 9-12 October
2016 in Budapest, Hungary. Finally,
new SMCS President Dimitar Filev
assumed office on 1 January 2016.
Please continue to volunteer to get
involved, participate in the governance of our Society, and provide
your feedback and suggestions to
Dimitar as you have to me. The
SMCS's organizational structure
and contact information for SMCS
volunteers are posted on the SMCS
website (http://ieeesmc.org/).

One of the most influential reference
resources for engineers around the world.
For over 100 years, Proceedings of the IEEE has been the leading journal for engineers looking for
in-depth tutorial, survey, and review coverage of the technical developments that shape our world.
Offering practical, fully referenced articles, Proceedings of the IEEE serves as a bridge to help readers
understand important technologies in the areas of electrical engineering and computer science.
