Distinguished Lecturers
The Systems Council currently has eleven 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 website.

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 Marco Parvis, VP Member Services. View a list of current Systems Council Chapters on our website.


About the IEEE Systems Council Newsletter

Engineers today start their careers with excellent technical skills and subject matter. The Systems Council Newsletter includes time sensitive news useful to its members and highlights content of the current issue of the IEEE Systems Journal.

President's Message

Dear reader and systems engineering expert,

Our next important event will be the IEEE Symposium on Systems Engineering (ISSE 2017) which will be held in Vienna this coming October. We received more submissions than in the past and we are working on the program that includes interesting papers and tutorials.

The Systems Council has a new website: The content in the previous website was fully reorganized to improve the amount of valuable information and its readability. Council news and information is published in this newsletter.

Have a fruitful reading and see you in Vienna!

IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering 2017 (ISSE)

The 3rd Annual IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering will be held 11-13 October 2017 in Vienna, Austria. This symposium seeks to create an interactive forum for the advancement of the practice of systems engineering across the multiple disciplines and specialty areas associated with the engineering of complex systems.

The symposium will provide a venue for systems engineering practitioners, managers, researchers, and educators to exchange innovative concepts, ideas, applications, and lessons learned addressing:
  • Applications-oriented topics on large-scale systems and systems-of-systems.
  • Systems engineering, educations standards, processes and methodologies for the systems-of-systems environment.
  • Research opportunities and results relating to systems-of-systems.
For more information, please visit the conference website.

2018 IEEE International Systems Conference (SysCon)

The 12th annual IEEE International Systems Conference will be held 23-26 April 2018 in Vancouver, Canada. For more information, view the conference website.

IEEE Systems Journal

The new bibliometric indices for 2016 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.

Impact Factor3.8822.1141.981.7461.27
Article Influence Score0.9870.7720.691 0.5920.592

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 recommendation about the appropriate use of bibliometric indices.

IEEE is committed to excellence and the IEEE Systems Council Technical Committees (TC) are designed to flexibly respond to any engineering interests whether they be long or short term.

IEEE is pleased to introduce a new IEEE data repository service called IEEE DataPort™.

After gathering input from IEEE members and performing further research, IEEE DataPort was developed and is now LIVE and ready for use by all society members. IEEE DataPort provides many benefits to IEEE society members beyond what other data repository services can offer. Learn more about the valuable capabilities of IEEE DataPort and the key differentiators that set IEEE DataPort apart from other data repositories.

IEEE DataPort is ramping up quickly with new users and new datasets. Visit the IEEE DataPort website and view the valuable capabilities it offers.
