7 Conference Coordination Worked closely with ITSC 2010 Team Worked closely with ITSC 2010 Team All TC Chairs have been automatically assigned AE role All TC Chairs have been automatically assigned AE role Multiple special sessions being organized Multiple special sessions being organized All TCs helping recruit reviewers All TCs helping recruit reviewers Helping IV with providing AEs Helping IV with providing AEs A proposal: starting in ITSC 2011, experimenting with at least 2 tracks from A proposal: starting in ITSC 2011, experimenting with at least 2 tracks from Communications Networks, Mobile Comm., Traffic and Travel Mgmt, Logistics & Services Communications Networks, Mobile Comm., Traffic and Travel Mgmt, Logistics & Services 7

8 ITSS Chapters The Beijing chapter has been very active The Beijing chapter has been very active Working with ITSS President & VP for Membership to establish a Wuhan chapter in China Working with ITSS President & VP for Membership to establish a Wuhan chapter in China Working on a policy document detailing responsibilities and privileges of Chapters Working on a policy document detailing responsibilities and privileges of Chapters Next step: Next step: Trying to establish chapters in Vienna, Tokyo, Toronto Trying to establish chapters in Vienna, Tokyo, Toronto 8

9 ITSS Website - Operations IEEE Tech Navigator database: continued work on ITS portion IEEE Tech Navigator database: continued work on ITS portion A proposal: creating IEEE ITSNow, following IEEE CS’ ComputingNow, coordinated through technical subcommittees A proposal: creating IEEE ITSNow, following IEEE CS’ ComputingNow, coordinated through technical subcommittees Closer coordination with the Newsletters & Magazine to post feature articles Closer coordination with the Newsletters & Magazine to post feature articles Better coordination with the Transactions & possibly ITS conferences to feature most popular Xplorer downloads Better coordination with the Transactions & possibly ITS conferences to feature most popular Xplorer downloads RSS feeds already online RSS feeds already online An award section done An award section done A TC Corner (committed so far: MESA; Comm. Networks; Mobile Comm.) A TC Corner (committed so far: MESA; Comm. Networks; Mobile Comm.) IEEE ITSS Tech nical Activ ities

10 ITSS Online Promotions Jointly with the VP for Membership, we are starting on google sponsored search campaigns Jointly with the VP for Membership, we are starting on google sponsored search campaigns An account created with google; budget allocation plan and performance measures being refined An account created with google; budget allocation plan and performance measures being refined On wikipedia, 151 entries have been identified with ITS relevance On wikipedia, 151 entries have been identified with ITS relevance 2 rounds of efforts taken to add the ITSS website as a reference entry 2 rounds of efforts taken to add the ITSS website as a reference entry 27 remain active; others have been taken down by wikipedia (the same IP used, editor deletion) 27 remain active; others have been taken down by wikipedia (the same IP used, editor deletion) 10

11 IEEE Smart Grid Initiative Joint work with ITSS President Joint work with ITSS President IEEE Smart Grid is an IEEE-wide initiative led by IEEE Standards Association and TAB IEEE Smart Grid is an IEEE-wide initiative led by IEEE Standards Association and TAB -“The Smart Grid has come to describe a next-generation electrical power system that is typified by the increased use of communications and information technology in the generation, delivery and consumption of electrical energy.“ -“The Smart Grid has come to describe a next-generation electrical power system that is typified by the increased use of communications and information technology in the generation, delivery and consumption of electrical energy.“ - Being broadly construed, almost like IBM’s “Smart Planet” 11

12 IEEE SG Virtual Organization Steering/Management Team IEEE-SA TA/Societies Marketing & PR SG Portal & Social Media J.R.B. D.M. et. al. S-C-J + B-A-S ComSoc Stefano Galli TBD SG Team Comp Soc John Waltz VTS TBD PES TBD OTHERS TBD

13 Objectives (my interpretation) In strategic areas, explore very early standards opportunities and establish IEEE’s proactive, visionary role as a technical entity In strategic areas, explore very early standards opportunities and establish IEEE’s proactive, visionary role as a technical entity Some seed funding from IEEE SA for workshops Some seed funding from IEEE SA for workshops 13

14 Society Involvement IEEE Communications Society (the most active one) IEEE Communications Society (the most active one) IEEE VTS (which recommended us be involved; already identified leaders from their society) IEEE VTS (which recommended us be involved; already identified leaders from their society) IEEE Control Society IEEE Control Society IEEE Computer Society IEEE Computer Society 14

15 A Sample Project from Communications Society Vision Task Force will create a rich set of forward-looking use cases and applications scenarios for SG - snap shots of years 2015, 2020, and 2030 that will characterize the SG paradigm from end user, and all relevant industry segments point of view Vision Task Force will create a rich set of forward-looking use cases and applications scenarios for SG - snap shots of years 2015, 2020, and 2030 that will characterize the SG paradigm from end user, and all relevant industry segments point of view Forming technical study groups to complete the Vision publication (series) Forming technical study groups to complete the Vision publication (series) A research forum planned for Oct. 7-8, 2010 in the DC area with experts A research forum planned for Oct. 7-8, 2010 in the DC area with experts 15

16 ITS Involvement Do we want to be involved? By ourselves or jointly with VTS? Do we want to be involved? By ourselves or jointly with VTS? Initial Steps: Initial Steps: Establishing an ad-hoc committee Establishing an ad-hoc committee Possibly participating in Comm. Society’s Oct. meeting Possibly participating in Comm. Society’s Oct. meeting Setting up a similar vision project (or our own project consistent with SmartGrid objectives) Setting up a similar vision project (or our own project consistent with SmartGrid objectives) 16
