IEEE IAS Data Center Committee
IEEE's vision is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. The Data Center market segment is one of the largest and fastest-growing industry segments in the world economy. The Industry Application Society (IAS) of the IEEE recently formed a data center subcommittee under the direction of the Industrial and Commercial Power Systems (I&CPS) department to support this important industry and to provide leadership and coordinate power distribution standards. The first meeting of this subcommittee was successfully held at the (I&CPS) annual meeting in Niagara Falls, Canada on 9 May 2018. The meeting was conducted as a brainstorming session and to establish the scope of the subcommittee. We are happy to announce that a second Data Center subcommittee meeting will be held during the 2018 IAS Annual Meeting in Portland, OR, USA. The goal of this meeting is to build on the ideas generated at the May meeting and to review and update the mission, vision and core charter of this new IAS I&CPS subcommittee in support of the data center industry.
This meeting will take place during the co-located IEEE IAS Annual Meeting and the IEEE Energy Conversion Congress & Expo, so please plan to attend the technical sessions and take advantage of networking and learning opportunities via several speakers offering technical presentations. To kick off this exciting new initiative, we are fortunate to have Sean James of Microsoft speaking during the conference opening plenary session on Monday 24 September. Mr. James will then join us during the IAS data center subcommittee meeting which will begin on Monday evening at 6 pm local time.
If you have questions or would like to become a charter member of our new IEEE IAS data center subcommittee, please contact Tom Johnson at email@example.com or Daleep Mohla at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you in Portland this September.
Overlength Page Charges Coming Into Effect
At its October 2017 meeting, the IAS Executive Board adopted a policy to impose an overlength charge on exceptionally long papers published in IEEE Industry Applications Magazine (M-IA) and IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications (T-IA). Here are some details on how that practice will be implemented:
Call for Web-based Tutorials
The IAS Education Department is developing a tutorial program that will appeal to a broad attendance, depending upon their experience, discipline and responsibilities. The tutorial program is intended to provide all attendees with an opportunity to enhance the education of the professional working in the field of industry applications of electrical engineering. Both experienced and younger engineers can benefit from the tutorials, either by updating or renewing their knowledge base or by accelerating their learning process on new topics. The tutorials should provide value to practicing engineers combine the theory with applications and practical solutions. The topics can range from broad to narrow in scope and can vary from introductory, intermediate or advanced in technical level. The tutorials will be arranged in one hour modules and can accommodate an introductory to the more advanced presentation in several modules up to a maximum of five modules per topic. Each module of the tutorial must have an interactive Q&A segment for self-evaluation of his/her learning by the attendee.
The tutorials will be available in the IAS Resource Center. Compensation for tutorial speakers includes an honorarium of US$1000. In the case of multiple speakers for one tutorial, the honorarium may be shared among the speakers.
The success of the tutorial will be evaluated by collecting data on the number of tutorial attendees, tutorial revenues, attendees' comments and other relevant information. A survey for tutorial attendees will be carried out to evaluate the attendees’ satisfaction with the tutorial. This information will be shared with the tutorial speaker to allow him/her to improve future versions.
Preparation of Proposals:
Tutorial proposals should be submitted as a digest containing the title, abstract (no more than 500 words), outline, contact information and a short bio of the speaker(s) and other relevant information requested in the Tutorial Information Form, which can be downloaded on our website. The speaker bio should describe the qualifications for presenting the proposed tutorial including the work and publications that are most relevant to the proposal. All tutorial proposals will be peer-reviewed by at least two experts in the matter. For this purpose, it is strongly recommended to submit a draft version of a section of the tutorial slides. Review results will be shared with the speaker to allow for further improvement of the tutorial.
Speaker(s) should fill out the Tutorial Information Form and submit it together with a draft of the presentation slides to the IAS Tutorial Committee Chair.
The tutorial proposal will be sent for peer review
Speakers to record presentations with the assistance of IAS staff
Presentation videos and Q&A modules to be uploaded into IAS Resource Center
For additional information and submission, please contact the Web-based Tutorial Committee Chair, Marcos Alonso at email@example.com.

2018 IEEE International Smart Cities Conference (ISC2)
The 4th annual IEEE International Smart Cities Conference is the flagship conference sponsored by the IEEE Smart Cities Initiative. ISC2 2018 will bring together researchers and practitioners in a collaborative smart cities discussion, including scholars, citizens, policy makers, administrators, infrastructure operators, industry representatives, economists, sociologists and academicians. Technical exchanges within the research community will encompass panels, plenary talks, technical sessions, tutorials, and exhibitions. The conference theme is Systems Approach for Smarter Communities that address the complex interplay between our technology systems and our service delivery systems.
The IEEE ISC2 will contribute to further develop technical best practices across broad application and functional domains within the context of urban infrastructure systems, and disseminate them to the broad stakeholders.
Prospective authors are encouraged to contribute high-quality original full or short papers to this conference. All submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. The papers should be written in English and formatted according to IEEE template. Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other abstracting and indexing databases.
All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members. Accepted papers with confirmed presentation will appear in the conference proceedings. The overall Best Paper and Best Student Paper Awards will be given and recognized during the conference.
