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 IEEE Systems Journal.

IEEE Systems Journal - Call for Papers

The journal in 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! 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).

Abstracts Now being Accepted!

The 9th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference will be held 13-16 April 2015 in Vancouver, BC Canada, at the Marriott Hotel, in downtown Vancouver.

This conference 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 conference 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 system-of-systems in various topics;
  • Systems engineering, education, standards, processes and methodologies for the system-of-systems environment;
  • Research opportunities and results relating to system-of-systems and complex systems.
Abstract due date is 1 November 2014 with acceptance notification 15 December 2014 and manuscript due date of 15 February 2015.

Submit abstracts through EDAS; If you do not have an EDAS account you may create one. Go to the "submit paper" tab and select "IEEE SysCon 2015" from the list.

News/Upcoming Events

The First IEEE International Symposium on Systems was held as part of the 8th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference (SYSCON). It was held 31 March - 3 April 2014 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The theme of the conference was Engineering of Complex Systems, to include Systems-of-systems, Systems Engineering, Systems Integration, and Systems Thinking.

The 9th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference will be held 13-16 April 2015 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The theme is to include Systems-of-systems, Systems Engineering, Systems Integration, and Systems Thinking.

The First IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering will be held in Rome, Italy in late 2015. This will be a great opportunity to put together people working in the systems engineering area, to develop knowledge and networks, fruitful for the development of our own careers.
