Distinguished Lecturers
The Systems Council currently has six active Distinguished Lecturers (DLs). The purpose of this program is to increase awareness about topics relevant to Systems Council by creating a pool of subject matter experts who are willing to speak to IEEE Chapters, Sections, Societies and Councils.

To view the DLs, find out how to request a DL speech, or apply to become a DL, visit our Web site.

IEEE Coastal Los Angeles Systems Council Chapter, Distinguished Lecturer Series
Dr. Vincenzo Piuri will be delivering a lecture on Computational Intelligence for Biometric and Industrial Applications at California State University 9 February 2016.

Systems Council Chapter Creation
A Chapter is a geographical sub-unit of an IEEE entity and is established by petition to the IEEE. Chapters are concerned with representing and fulfilling the needs of the member in their specific geographical area. Chapters allow members to meet face to face and host local activities.

The Systems Council currently is looking to expand through the use of Chapters. Creating a Systems Council or Joint Chapter is easily done through a petition, submitted to IEEE. For more information on this process please visit the IEEE website or contact Rich Hochberg, VP Member Services. View a list of current Systems Chapters on our website.

Other Conferences of Interest
6th IEEE Green Energy and Systems Conference (IGESC)

The 6th IEEE Green Energy and Systems Conference (IGESC) was held 9 November 2015 at California State University, Long Beach, CA, USA (6th year in a row). There were approximately 200 attendees, including paper presenters from Singapore, Portugal, etc.

The presentation slide of Keynote and Lunch talks are available on our website.

More photos are available on Dropbox.

Both Keynote and Lunch talks were video recorded and will be available soon.

The 7th IEEE Green Energy and Systems Conference (IGESC) will be held in Long Beach, CA 7 November 2016. View the IGESC 2016 Call for Papers. The submission deadline is 6 June 2016.

Take a closer look at the committee ideas that are under development.

To participate in one of the TCs, please contact Roger Oliva, VP Technical Operations for the Systems Council. Please view our website for more information.


IEEE Systems Council Intelligent Transportation Design (ITD) Technical Committee Meetings

IEEE Systems Council Intelligent Transportation Design (ITD) Technical Committee meetings will be held bi-weekly either on Tuesday or Thursday.

The goal of the IEEE ITD meeting is to capture the essence of machine-enabled human and cargo transportation through all modes of travel. Issues associated with the safe implementation of electromechanical systems supporting autonomous and semi-autonomous transport will be identified, predicted, and their mitigation strategies recommended. Particular attention will be paid to the power processes, internal and external electronics, and the material integrity of electromechanical systems. For additional information regarding the IEEE Systems Council Intelligent Transportation Design (ITD) Technical Committee meetings, please contact Roger Oliva at or LaMont McAliley at

Systems Council AdCom

The Systems Council AdCom will hold their next meeting 21 April 2016 in Orlando, FL, USA. This meeting will be held in conjunction with the 10th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference.
