Dear IIE Computer and Information Systems Division members,
Last year the CIS division has redefined its vision and mission in order to clarify and envision the scope of CIS activities. We encourage interested members to see the vision and mission statements at http://www.iienet2.org/Details.aspx?id=33921 and provide feedback to me or other board members. The CIS activities are organized by the members of division board and a list of board members is available on the CIS website. You have elected a new president-elect, John Jung-Woon Yoo from Bradley University, and two new directors, Gerald Knapp from Louisiana State University and Hui Yang from University of South Florida. Thank you for your participation in the voting to select these outstanding leaders to serve our division. Our best wishes to the exiting board members Young-Jun Son and Russell Wooten; we would like to thank them for their dedicated service to our division.
The key activities we are putting together this academic year include: organizing the second CIS-sponsored Mobile App Competition (http://www.iienet2.org/Details.aspx?id=33697); maintaining CIS-sponsored webinar series; continuing CIS town hall meeting at IIE Annual Conference & Expo; continuing best paper and best student paper award competitions; organizing sessions in both ISERC and Applied Solutions conference. We solicit your input in terms of any other activities to better serve your needs.
The next IIE Annual Conference & Expo will be held in May 31-June 3, 2014, in Montreal, Canada. We cordially invite you to submit and present your work in the CIS-sponsored tracks.
Warm wishes to you all and look forward to interacting with you throughout this year. Special thanks to Gerald Knapp for putting together the CIS Newsletter.
CIS Division President, 2013-2014
