The IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing ( TMC) has completed five years since its inception in January 2002. The quality and quantity of submissions TMC receives is a clear indicator of its good reputation within the research community. The editorial board is working hard to maintain and, indeed, further improve this reputation. To handle the large number and breadth of submissions, over the last year, we added several new associate editors with diverse backgrounds, and also increased the publication frequency to once a month. We plan to add new associate editors to further diversify the editorial board and to improve the timeliness of the review process. These changes are expected to help maintain relatively low submission to publication delays. In this issue, I would like to introduce two new associate editors, Sumit Roy and Stephan Weiss. Sumit Roy's biography is included below. Stephan Weiss' biography is unfortunately not available for publication at this time. I would also like to thank the following people for the services they have provided: John Heideman, Jean-Pierre Hubaux, Ravi R. Jain, Robin Kravets, P.R. Kumar, and Wenwu Zhu, who have stepped down recently from their associate editor positions. We are able to maintain the high standards of TMC only due to the help of such dedicated associate editors, as well as the referees who volunteer their time to evaluate the manuscripts.
Let me take this opportunity to thank our readers and authors for their support of TMC. Please feel free to contact me if you have any feedback or suggestions for the editorial board.

Sumit Roy received the BTech degree from the Indian Institute of Technology (Kanpur) in 1983 and the MS and PhD degrees from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1985 and 1988, respectively, all in electrical engineering. He also received the MA degree in statistics and applied probability in 1988. Presently, he is an associate chair and professor of electrical engineering at the University of Washington, where his research interests include the analysis/design of several wireless communication systems/networks with an emphasis on wireless LANs (802.11) and wireless MANs (802.16) networks. He spent 2001-2003 on academic leave at the Intel Wireless Technology Laboratory as a senior researcher engaged in systems architecture and standards development for ultra-wideband systems (Wireless PANs) and next generation high-speed wireless LANs. His activities for the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) include membership on several technical and conference program committees (most recently, he served as vice chair of the technical program committee for the IEEE WCNC '05 conference). He has served as an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications and the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, and currently serves on the editorial boards for the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and Wiley J. Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing.
