The IEEE Computer Society’s policy limits the terms of the members of its Editorial Boards. This allows new people and expertise to come in and benefits the growth and vitality of the journal. The success of the journal relies on the quality of the submissions and reviews and the work of the associate editors. The dedication of associate editors is essential to the continuing growth of the journal.
On behalf of the IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics ( TVCG)’s Editorial Board, I would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to the retiring Associate Editors, Ravin Balakrishnan and Chris North. It is my pleasure to introduce Maneesh Agrawala and Jan Kautz, who have recently joined the TVCG Editorial Board as Associate Editors. Below are the biographical sketches listing their accomplishments and areas of expertise. The TVCG Editorial Board is pleased to welcome these outstanding researchers to their new role.
Ming C. Lin
Maneesh Agrawala received the BS degree in 1994 and the PhD degree in 2002, both from Stanford University. He is an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of California, Berkeley. He works on visualization, computer graphics, and human computer interaction. His focus is on investigating how cognitive design principles can be used to improve the effectiveness of visual displays. The goals of this work are to discover the design principles and then instantiate them in both interactive and automated design tools. He received the SIGGRAPH Significant New Researcher award in 2008 and a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2009. He served as a program co-chair for the Non-Photorealistic Animation and Rendering (NPAR) Symposium in 2007 and the User Interface Software Technology conference in 2011.
Jan Kautz received the undergraduate degree from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (1999), the MMath degree from the University of Waterloo (1999), and the PhD degree from the Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik (2003). He then spent more than two and a half years as a postdoctoral researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology until 2006, when he moved to University College London (UCL). He is a senior lecturer (associate professor) at UCL in the Virtual Environments and Computer Graphics Group. He is particularly interested in real-time rendering, light transport, realistic materials, and image and video-based rendering, on which he has published many articles at various conferences, including ACM SIGGRAPH. He was program cochair of the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering 2007, program chair of the IEEE Symposium on Interactive Ray-Tracing 2008, and is currently cochairing Pacific Graphics 2011.
