IEEE T&C – TAC Meeting

Seattle, WA, 12th June 2012

Roy Sterritt, University of Ulster


Ieee t c tac meeting

  • To Address within 3 minutes:

  • (a) What are your main activities/programs as a TC?

  • (b) Where are the opportunities for TC/CS growth in your topic area?

  • (c) How are you working to increase CS member participation?

  • (d) What are the key problems or issues that your TC is facing?


Tc aas autonomous and autonomic systems

TC-AAS: Autonomous and Autonomic Systems

(a) What are your main activities/programs as a TC?

(b) Where are the opportunities for TC/CS growth in your topic area?

(c) How are you working to increase CS member participation?

(d) What are the key problems or issues that your TC is facing?

  • Primarily conferences or workshops and special issues. SASO & EASe.

  • The TC covers a range of important issues still relevant today. 11 years into the initiative, the real opportunity for growth is consolidation of other “autonomic computing” areas, for instance OC, into single community.

  • SASO interested in creating a Non-profit organization.

  • General promotion of field for instance articles in Computer.

  • Also just published a translated book into Chinese on the topic of “Autonomous and Autonomic Systems".

  • No longer hot topic. Applicable to other TCs (horizontal across verticals) so internal competition. Initial gold rush created many “autonomic” groups and hasn’t consolidated yet into focused community.

  • Usual conference concerns of “IEEE Tax” and conference affordability.

  • Volunteers.


Tc cx complexity in computing

TC-CX:Complexity in Computing

  • Apologies from Mike Hinchey

  • Primarily conferences or workshops and special issues.   ICECCS runs annually, other events such as MODELS and SEW run at more varying intervals (e.g., every 18 months).     We previously tried to have more seminar-like events but unless they were attached to another event they really weren't well attended.

  • The TC covers a range of important issues.     There really is little in the line of publications in the area.   We tried to run a regular newsletter but the articles tended to be too brief to be of any significant benefit.

  • New videoconferencing technologies (Skype is not sufficient and older technology tended to bring everyone down to the lowest bandwidth) may make seminars via videoconference feasible.

  • What are your main activities/programs as a TC?

  • Where are the opportunities for TC/CS growth in your topic area?

TC-CX:Complexity in Computing

  • Apologies from Mike Hinchey

  • Sponsoring varied events which brings recognition, also published a book recently on the topic of "Conquering Complexity".

  • Few members who attend regularly.  There are some but not enough.   Also some of the more committed members are close to retirement or have become more senior in their careers and don't has as much time for volunteer activities.

(c) How are you working to increase CS member participation?

(d) What are the key problems or issues that your TC is facing?


Tc ecbs engineering of computer based systems

TC-ECBSEngineering of Computer-Based Systems

(a) What are your main activities/programs as a TC?

(b) Where are the opportunities for TC/CS growth in your topic area?

(c) How are you working to increase CS member participation?

(d) What are the key problems or issues that your TC is facing?

  • Primarily conferences, regional conferences and collocated workshops at ECBS. Developing a special issues programme.

  • Although the TC covers a range of important issues, for instance CPS it appears to have missed this “boat”. We intentionally ensure we did not attempt to “take-over” others conferences but growing our own Regional conferences – but hard times to push this.

  • Encouraging members to bring their PhD/Post-docs/Research staff into the community.

  • Small community, “family”, PhD/Postdoc growth only.

  • Volunteers – effort vs tenure – perceived value of being involved.
