About the IEEE Systems Council Newsletter
The IEEE Systems Council Newsletter includes time sensitive news useful to its members and highlights content of the current issue of the IEEE Systems Journal.
IEEE Systems Council held the 12th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference (SysCon 2018) at the JW Marriott Parq in Vancouver, Canada 23-26 April 2018. I attended two excellent tutorials and heard instructive case studies. I found the tutorial addressing Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL) very informative. Paper sessions were diverse and excellent. They addressed Systems Integration and Verification, Complex Systems, Autonomous Systems, Modeling and Simulation, Systems Engineering, Human System Integration, Machine Learning, Transportation Systems, Engineering Systems of Systems, Robotic Systems, Model Based Systems Engineering, Cyber Security, Decision Making for Complex Systems, System Architecture, and Systems and Applications.
We will hold the 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering (ISSE) 1-3 October 2018 in Rome Italy. I hope that you are planning to attend. The keynote speaker is Dr. Marina Ruggieri. Her talk will be exciting and illuminating. It is titled "The Software-Defined-Everything (SDE) revolution in the Space Systems: Softwarized Satellites, Cloud above the clouds and Human-Robot Cooperation." Dr. Ruggieri, past Vice President of the IEEE Technical Activities Board, is also a Full Professor of Telecommunications Engineering at the University of Roma "Tor Vergata" and therein member of the Board of Directors; Principal Investigator of the 40/50 GHz communications experiment of the TDP5 payload on-board the ESA Alphasat satellite, launched in 2013; and co-founder and Steering Board Chair of CTIF, a cross-disciplinary center for innovative Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) infrastructures and applications at the University of Roma "Tor Vergata," belonging to a global network located in Europe, USA and Asia. She has been Vice Chair of the Italian Space Agency Council and member of the Council of Experts for Research Policy for the Italian Ministry, and she is arbitrator of the Italian Industry Federation for Aerospace, Defense and Security. In addition to paper sessions as at ISSE, there will be a special session on Theoretical Foundations of System Engineering (THEFOSE) and System Optimization.
The IEEE Systems Council was recently informed that the IEEE Systems Journal did extremely well with a 2017 impact factor of 4.337. We congratulate Dr. Vincenzo Piuri, Editor-in-Chief and all the authors, editors, and reviewers of the journal on their achievement.
Our newsletters are published quarterly and include information on IEEE Systems Council activities plus a list of other conferences of interest. I hope you find this newsletter of interest. Past newsletters can be found on our website.
IEEE Systems Council President
Long Island University
While the nominations are now closed for the 2019 class of IEEE Fellows, the Systems Council encourages you to begin thinking about your nominations for the 2020 class. If you know someone who is a Senior Member whose experience is in the systems engineering field we welcome you to nominate them for the class of 2020 and identify the Systems Council as their evaluating unit. Nominations for the 2020 class of Fellows will open in September. More information can be found on the IEEE website.

University of Houston Cullen Prof. Jose 'Pepe' Contreras-Vidal, IEEE Robotics and Automation Society representative to the IEEE Systems Council, participated in the Industry Connections Program in Neuro-Technologies for Brain-Machine Interfacing workshop at the IEEE International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference held in Honolulu, HI, USA, 17-21 July 2018.
The workshop and working group provided an integrated overview of all standards activity that is specifically related to Brain-machine interfacing (BMI)-related neurotechnologies, divided in the following working groups:
This is a great opportunity for members of the IEEE Systems Council to participate in the definition of standards for BMI systems. For further information, please contact:
IEEE Systems Journal
The new bibliometric indices for 2017 have been published. The IEEE Systems Journal is continuously growing in quality and appreciation, thanks to the care and dedication of Vincenzo Piuri (Editor-in-Chief), Amir Aghdam and Saeid Nahavandi (Deputy Editors-in-Chief), all Associate Editors, and all reviewers.
The values displayed for the Journal Citation Metrics fields are the ones reported by IEEE Xplore and are based on the Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Report (JCR).
IEEE has issued a statement about the appropriate use of bibliometric indices.
Call for Papers for IEEE Journal on Miniaturization for Air and Space Systems (J-MASS)
The IEEE Journal on Miniaturization for Air and Space Systems is a new technical journal devoted to covering the rapidly evolving field of small air and space systems such as drones and small satellites. These platforms offer new, low-cost ways to accomplish a wide range of sensing functions for applications ranging from agriculture to land use and ocean surveys.
Papers are sought that address innovative approaches to solving problems related to the development and use of miniaturized platforms such as drones and CubeSats. The scope includes both the sensors (across the electromagnetic spectrum) and platform systems (propulsion, navigation, power, communication, etc.)
