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.

Systems Council Chapter Creation
A Chapter is a geographical sub-unit of the 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 or Joint Chapter is easily done through a petition, submitted to IEEE. For more information on this process please visit the IEEE Web site or contact Rich Hochberg, VP Member Services. To view a list of current Systems Chapters, visit our Web site.


About the IEEE Systems Council Newsletter

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

Upcoming Events

The first IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering (ISSE) will be held in Rome, Italy 29-30 September 2015. This symposium seeks to create an interactive forum for the practice of systems engineering across the multiple disciplines and specialty areas associated with the engineering of complex systems. View the Call for Papers.

The 10th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference will take place 18-21 April, 2016 in Orlando, Florida, USA. View a brief history of this conference. The conference caters to both practitioners and academics, providing a forum to exchange ideas and experiences on technology, methodology, applications, study cases, and practical experiences. View the Call for Papers for more details.

Important Dates:
Initial Manuscript Deadline: 15 October 2015
Acceptance Notification: 1 December 2015
Final Paper Deadline: 14 February 2016

IEEE Systems Journal

The IEEE Systems Journal is intended to stimulate awareness, appreciation and utilization of systems thinking and the supporting systems engineering disciplines, especially for complex systems, systems-of-systems, and complex cyber-physical systems, across many domains and application areas.

Do not miss the opportunity of submitting your most recent results for possible publication in the IEEE Systems Journal! Visit our Web site to view all the Call for Papers.

To prepare and submit your manuscript please follow these instructions.

Significantly extended and expanded versions of papers previously published in conference proceedings can be submitted; provided that sufficient original material and innovative aspects are included (description of the extensions beyond the conference paper should be provided at the time of submission).

2015 IEEE Systems Conference Best Paper Award

Congratulations to our Best Paper Award winners, Constantin Pitis and Zaid A. Al-Chalabi for the paper entitled, "Novel Method of Benchmarking Energetic Efficiency of Industrial Systems."

In Memoriam

Frank Reyes
10 February 1937 - 27 April 2015

It is with great sadness and sorrow that we inform you of the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Mr. Frank Reyes. Frank was a long-time supporter of the Systems Council and selflessly gave his time and expertise by being a wonderful and effective volunteer serving as vice president for finance, secretary and an BoG member. Please stay tuned for an upcoming "In Memoriam" article in the Magazine and this web site about Frank, his life and his contributions to I&M Society and his profession. We all will miss Frank terribly.

Systems Council AdCom

The Systems Council met for their Spring AdCom Meeting Telecon on 16 April 2015. Their next meeting will be held on 1 October 2015 in Rome, Italy in conjunction with the IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering (ISSE).
