Vision: Become the leading division in IIE by increasing networking and partnership between its members and promoting forums to engage, share and recognize innovative ideas in the field of computer and information systems. Vision and Mission Statement
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 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. More from the president
The IIE Annual Conference & Expo 2013 was held in May 18-22 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The CIS division participated in both ISERC and Applied Solutions Conference. The CIS tracks in both conferences were organized by Dr. Hari Thiruvengada from Honeywell International and Dr. Seokcheon Lee from Purdue University.
There were 51 presentations in the ISERC CIS track and two presentations in the Applied Solutions Conference CIS track, among which 28 were invited ones. All ISERC presentations were categorized into 10 invited and five contributed sessions. Read here for topics of sessions.

The advent of mobile devices such as Apple i-series and Samsung Galaxy series has dramatically changed not only personal lifestyles but also business practices. Tech-savvy industrial & systems engineers have foreseen the potentials of the new technology and are actively applying it to solve problems in their own domains. For more information and the competition website.
Mobile devices are rapidly becoming the interface of choice to business information and processes. It is critical that industrial & systems engineers become familiar with developing systems that incorporate these devices. To this end, the CIS Division has developed a new Mobile App Competition to encourage students to develop expertise in the use of Mobile devices (see announcement for the competition above).
We are currently seeking sponsorships for the competition. If you or your company can assist with a sponsorship, please contact the competition co-chairs (emails below). Sponsors will be recognized at the ISERC 2014 conference and in CIS division newsletters.

ISERC CIS track provides two award opportunities for the submitted papers. The Best Paper Award is endowed to the most outstanding paper among all paper submissions within CIS track. Independently from that, if appropriate, please consider applying for the Best Student Paper Award. Details regarding qualification, eligibility and application process for the Best Student Paper Award can be found in http://www.iienet2.org/Details.aspx?id=17500.
One of the benefits of belonging to a professional society is the opportunity to share knowledge about various topics of interest.
Topic: Semantic Information Extraction by Gerald Knapp, associate professor, mechanical and industrial engineering, Louisiana State University
Knapp and his research team at LSU have recently focused on advancing the ability of computers to identify and extract "meaning" from document, image, and video content. The goal is to obtain human-level – and better – capabilities in understanding and reasoning from text, speech, and visual scenes. These technologies have a broad range of potential applications, including improved search engines, better security monitoring, and assistive robotics.
