Abstract

Four current and former IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC) Society presidents consider the past, present, and future of the IEEE SMC Society to commemorate the society's 20th anniversary. The authors address its auspicious beginning, its transition from an incubatee to an incubator society, the breadth of its transactions, the international character of its membership, the appropriateness of the name, the move toward a systems-oriented umbrella organization, the evolving array of research areas, and the challenges and opportunities the society faces in the future.
