This division brings together members from academia, industry and government who share a common interest in topics related to research and practice of computer and information systems. The CIS division is primarily interested in the theory, methodology and practice in all technical areas that develop or apply CIS.

President's Message

November 2015

Dear IIE Computer & Information Systems (CIS) Division members,

This summer continued a strong showing by the CIS division in terms of presentations and sessions at the annual Industrial & Systems Engineering Research Conference (ISERC). There were 56 presentations in 17 sessions in this year, including a very well attended and received panel discussion on the Internet of Things (IoT). CIS presence at the annual conference, as well as our division membership, has been growing strongly for over a decade now, and looks on course to continue this year with the help of your contributions and collaboration in division activities!

One of the benefits of belonging to a professional society is the opportunity to share knowledge about various topics of interest.

Topic: Research Overview of Complex System Design and Analysis Laboratory
Sang Won Yoon, Assistant Professor, Systems Science and Industrial Engineering, State University of New York at Binghamton
Overview: Dr. Sang Won Yoon and his research team has been studying a variety of emerging research domains including 1) distributed decision making, coordination protocol design and collaborative control theory, 2) large-scale data analytics and predictive modeling, 3) mail-order pharmacy system design and analysis, 4) healthcare systems optimization, 5) production & manufacturing systems optimization, and 6) warehouse management and transportation. This research overview will outline a brief description of six research domains, followed by future research plans.

Topic: Visual sensing and Data Analytics
Mehdi Khazaeli, Assistant Professor, Engineering Management, University of the Pacific
Overview: Dr. Khazaeli and his research team at UOP are working on multimedia analysis and using contextual cueing to improve segmentation, scene detection and object recognition (Figure 1 presents a framework for visual sensing applications). This research will ultimately contribute to sport biomechanics, training environment and building information modelling.
