This is our first issue of the IEEE SMC Society e-Newsletter for 2013 and this year promises to be one with much happening on the SMC front. The IEEE SMC 2013 Conference will be held in Manchaster, UK October 13-16, 2013. We have all details regarding the conference in the December 2012 issue and I urge you to plan on participating and work to make it a much successful evenet.This issue is devoted to future conferences and focusing on our technical committees.

It is my intent to solicit and publish status reports from SMC volunteers at all levels. The reports will highlight the activities of each unit and encourage participation of members and non-members alike to further advance our contributions to technological and theoretical aspects of our fields of interest. Please do not wait for an invitation, just go ahead and submit all your news to share with your colleagues new and well established practices.

Future issues will feature reports by technical committee chairs on some of their activities, call for papers of special issues of transactions, tables of contents of forthcoming transactions, introduction to some of our local chapters, and at least one guest editorial among other novel features being planned.
