The IEEE Computer Society’s policy limits the terms of the members of its Editorial Board. 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 TVCG’s Editorial Board, I would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to the retiring Associate Editors: Leif Kobbelt, Klaus Mueller, and Helmut Pottmann.
It is my pleasure to introduce Shi-Min Hu, Huamin Qu, and Anders Ynnerman, who have recently joined 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
Editor-in-Chief





Shi-Min Hu received the PhD degree from Zhejiang University in 1996. He is currently a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Tsinghua University, Beijing. His research interests include digital geometry processing, video processing, rendering, computer animation, and computer aided geometric design. He is associate editor-in-chief of The Visual Computer (Springer), and on the editorial boards of Computer-Aided Design and Computer & Graphics (Elsevier). Shi-Min Hu has published more than 80 papers in journals and peer-reviewed conferences. He is a member of the IEEE and the ACM.





Huamin Qu received the BS degree in mathematics from Xi’an Jiaotong University, China, and the MS and PhD (2004) degrees in computer science from Stony Brook University. He is an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. His main research interests are in visualization and computer graphics. He has coauthored more than 70 refereed papers which cover a wider range of topics in scientific visualization, information visualization, visual analytics, and virtual reality. He is on the steering committee of the IEEE Pacific Visualization Conferences, and was program cochair for IEEE PacificVis 2011 and 2012. He has served as a guest editor for the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications, and ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems, and has coedited five special issues/sections for these journals. He received the Honorable Mention for Best Paper Award at IEEE Visualization 2009 and is a winner of 2009 IBM Faculty Award.





Anders Ynnerman received the PhD degree in physics from Gothenburg University in 1992. During the early 90’s, he was at Oxford University, UK, and Vanderbilt University, USA. From 1997 to 2002, he directed the Swedish National Supercomputer Centre, and from 2002 to 2006 he directed the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing. Since 1999, he has held a chair in scientific visualization at Linköping University and is the director of the Norrköping Visualization Center–C. He is also the chair of the scientific council for the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization. He is currently vice chair of the Eurographics Association and is an associate editor of the Computers and Graphics journal. He is one of the papers chairs for IEEE SciVis 2013. He was the general chair of Eurographics 2010 and cochair of Volume Graphics 2008 and Eurovis 2007. In 2006, he was elected member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences. His current research interests include largescale data in visualization and computer graphics, direct volume rendering and volumetric lighting techniques, and volume haptics for exploration of scientific data.
