The 2014 International Conference on Life System Modeling and Simulation (LSMS2014) and 2014 International Conference on Intelligent Computing for Sustainable Energy and Environment (ICSEE2014) has been successfully held in Shanghai, China from 20th to 23rd September 2014. It was jointly hosted by Chinese Association for System Simulation, IEEE SMCS Technical Committee on Systems Biology and IET China, and jointly organized by Shanghai University, Queen’s University Belfast, Life system modelling and simulation special interest committee of CASS, and embedded instrumentation and system technology Chapter, China Instrument and Control Society. This conference is a milestone of the iGIVE (Intelligent Grid Interfaced Vehicle Eco-charging) project which is one of the four UK-China key research projects in deepening green technology development with over £1 million grant from Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), UK and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), China.

The conference received a total of 572 submissions. Among them, 220 high-quality papers have been accepted for presentation, and 159 papers from the selected 220 are published in Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) proceedings, Springer. All 220 papers will be indexed by EI. Additionally, 29 accepted papers were recommended to international SCI journals, and another 32 accepted papers were recommended to International EI journals for potential publication. These papers covers 40 topics ranging from the latest advantages in computational methods, artificial intelligence on Life System Modelling and Simulation to recent research on sustainable energy and environment.
213 researchers from 13 countries and districts gathered together in Yanchang campus, Shanghai University to share their recent research. These includes representatives China, America, UK, Germany, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Portugal, Malaysia and Chinese Hong Kong. Among them, 47 researchers were from overseas academic institutes, and 166 representatives were from leading universities and instituted in China, such as Tsinghua University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Zhejiang University, Harbin Institute of Technology, State Grid Electric Power Research Institute, etc. During the presentation session, a total of 460 scholars, researchers, lectures and post-graduate research students joined the discussion. The opening ceremony, closing ceremony and the banquet are hosted by Prof. Minrui Fei, head of School of Mechanical Engineering & Automation of Shanghai University, Prof. Kang Li, chair of intelligent control group of Queen’s University Belfast, and Prof. Shiwei Ma, chair of Automation group in School of Mechanical Engineering & Automation, Shanghai University respectively.

The opening speech was given by Prof. Lin Zhang from Chinese Association for System Simulation, followed by an impassioned speed from Prof. Luonan Chen, chair of IEEE SMCS Technical Committee on Systems Biology. Moreover, Prof. Min Wang, vice president of Shanghai University and Prof. Sean McLoone from Queen’s University Belfast welcomed all delegates, and expressed their wish of success. There were six plenary lectures given by Prof. Yusheng Xue, member of Chinese Academy of Engineering, honorary president of State Grid Electric Power Research Institute, Prof. Witold Pedrycz, chair professor at University of Albert, Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Prof. Umezu Mitsuo, chair professor at Waseda University, Prof. Huosheng Hu, chair professor at University of Essex, IET Fellow, Prof. Panos Pardalos, distinguished professor in University of Florida, AAAS Fellow and Prof. Daniel Yeung, chair professor at South China University of Technology, IEEE Fellow respectively. Additionally, two workshops on ‘Integration of Electric Vehicles with Smart Grid’ and ‘Communication & Control for Distributed Networked Systems’ are organized in this conference, and co-chaired by Prof. Yusheng Xue, Prof. Kang Li, Prof Qinglogn Han and Prof. Chen Peng. 95 papers were orally presented in 8 parallel sessions. These papers covered numerous of research areas and latest topics, including both theoretical analysis and practical applications. At the end, 3 ‘Best Paper Award’ 8 ‘Best paper nominated award’ were announced.

The LSMS international conference is originated from a workshop in ‘ASC & ICSC 2002’, Supported by Chinese Association for System Simulation, the chapter on Life System Modeling and Simulation is established two years later, followed by the first LSMS conference held in Shanghai University in 2004. The LSMS conference is held every three years, thus another two LSMS international conferences had been successfully held at Shanghai and Wuxi in 2007 and 2010 respectively. From 2010, a UK-China Joint Laboratory on Energy and Automation has been announced by four partners, including Shanghai University, Queen’s University Belfast, Shanghai Automation Instrumentation CO., LTD and Shanghai Baosight Software CO., LTD. It was strongly supported by the UK-China Science Bridge project on Sustainable Energy and Built Environment which involved 14 leading institutes from UK and China. As a result, LSMS and ICSEE international conference are being organized together. The websites of previous ‘LSMS&ICSEE’ conferences have attracted significant attentions with over 300,000 views being tracked. The Conference proceedings published by Springer are within the top 25% most downloaded eBooks with more than 90,000 chapters downloads until now.

The 2014 International Conferences on LSMS & ICSEE provides an excellent communication platform for peer professionals, scholars and engineers. It also provides an opportunities for Chinese researches to follow the latest international developments in computational methods for life system modelling and simulation, and sustainable energy and environment. This conference has witnessed fruitful results from researchers and illustrated the importance of system simulation in national economy and defense construction. The success of this conference enhanced the communication and collaboration nationally and internationally in related areas, and brought significant benefits to Chinese researchers.
