2016 Report on Activities of IEEE-SMC Technical Committee on Discrete Event Systems

The Technical Committee on Discrete Event Systems has organized at the WODES 2016 (Workshop on Discrete Event Systems in Xi’An China, May 30 – June 1 2016) the successful special session on Discrete Event Systems Approaches in Logistics and Transportation Systems. The special session was organized by Maria Pia Fanti, Meng Chu Zhou and Walter Ukovich and at the conference has been followed by a large number of attendances.

Discrete Event Systems TC

The Technical Committee on Discrete Event Systems will give a strong support to the 14th IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control, to be held in May 16-18, 2017, Calabria, Southern Italy. The ICNSC 2017 will provide a remarkable opportunity for the academic and industrial communities to address new challenges and share solutions, and discuss future research directions in the field of Networking, Sensing and Control.

The ICNSC conference is sponsored by the SMCS and the General Chair of the ICNSC 2017 is Giancarlo Fortino, the new chair of the SMC Italy chapter.

A new activity of the TC on Discrete Event Systems is the sponsorship of the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Service Operations and Logistics, and Informatics (SOLI 2017), to be held in September 18-20, 2017 Bari. The SOLI 2017 will offer the occasion to enlighten and disseminate the new advances in cyber-infrastructure and platforms to achieve more efficient and productive service operations in logistics. The chair of the TC on Discrete Event Systems, Maria Pia Fanti will be the general Chair of SOLI 2017.
