IEEE TEMS Leader Apr 2019

On Conferences 2019

Last year, 2018, IEEE TEMS Conferences truly had a productive year as you may have read in a previous conference report in an earlier edition of Leader. So we have set our course and continued our growth and can only do so with the great help of all the local conference organizing teams and the support by all of you by submitting your papers, your workshops and attending these conferences. 

The year has started, our first conferences have been and are taking in place in April and May already, with more to come this summer and with the pipeline continuing to grow already for 2020, 2021 and 2022. Several conferences have already gone through their Call for Papers and Review Phase and are in the final process of planning and slotting the papers into the respective conference programs. And some are just starting their CfP phase right now. Please do check out our IEEE TEMS social media channels too, on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, to read more ongoing messages on all of our conferences.

2019 Agenda by Month


April 8th to 10th, the 14th IEEE International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized Systems (2019 IEEE ISADS) was held in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The conference or supported in collaboration with IEEE Computer Society under leadership by prof.dr. Erik Puik from the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht. The special topic for ISADS 2019 is “Technology and Business Innovation through Structure Change of Society and Life.” (http://isads2019.org/).  Aside from the interesting technical papers, the conference provided great keynotes to the audience. For example by the founding father of the conference, Kinji Mori of Waseda University, and also from the CTO of Hitachi, Norihiro Suzuki on “Social Innovation for Society 5.0,” and with public information on this topic to be found at https://www8.cao.go.jp/cstp/english/society5_0/index.html. The conference included a real surprising and interesting social program including a visit to the Museum Speelklok. The participants received a private tour through the wonderful world of self-playing musical instruments and seeing the first autonomous decentralized systems of their kind. For your information, the proceedings’ papers are currently submitted for processing for publication into IEEE Xplore.


When you read this issue of Leader, the next conferences might just be in progress. As from May 6th to 9th, the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Industrial Cyber Physical Systems (2019 IEEE ICPS) takes place with IEEE Industrial Electronics Society in the lead and TEMS supporting at the Howard Plaza Hotel, in Taipei, Taiwan. (www.icps19.org)


June 10 and 12th to 14th, the 3rd edition of our flagship conference 2019 IEEE TEMSCON and with the theme for 2019 “Leading Innovation in Times of Constant Change.” The conference is lead by David Bishop and his team, in Atlanta where we will be guests at Georgia Tech Research Institute. On June 10th, the day before the conference, parallel workshops will be held. You do not want to miss this opportunity if these are your fields of interest: “High Tech and Venture Capital” by Eliezer Manor, and “Turning Engineering Projects into Successful Businesses” by Dr. Aaron Shenhar. Of course, the conference program will also be quite interesting, with on the second conference day our Industry Forum. And we are hopefully progressing just in time to have a StartUp Pitch Competition as we are in the innovative heart of Atlanta. We recommend to regularly check the website www.temscon.org, as the program is under construction and unfolding.
