New EICs Take Helm of Transactions
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 21 September, 2009 – Four distinguished computing researchers are slated to begin terms as editors in chief of four IEEE Computer Society transactions in January.
Kevin Skadron, who helped cofound the IEEE Computer Architecture Letters in 2001, will assume the post of editor in chief of that journal in January. Skadron has been on the University of Virginia’s computer science faculty since 1999 and was a visiting professor for Nvidia Research.
With a PhD in computer science from Princeton University, Skadron has authored or coauthored more than 100 peer-reviewed articles. His research interests focus on physical design challenges and programming models for multicore and many-core architectures, including graphics architectures. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and the ACM, on the advisory board of the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Computer Architecture, and secretary-treasurer of ACM SIGARCH. He is an associate editor for IEEE Micro.
Bashar Nuseibeh will serve as the new EIC of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering. Nuseibeh holds a PhD in software engineering from Imperial College London and is a professor of computing at the UK’s Open University and a visiting professor at Imperial College London and the National Institute of Informatics in Japan.
In October, he will also assume the position of software engineering professor and chief scientist at LERO- the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre.
His research interests are in software requirements engineering and design, software engineering for secure systems and privacy management, and technology transfer. He has published more than 140 papers and consulted widely with industry, working with organizations such as the UK National Air Traffic Services, Texas Instruments, Praxis Critical Systems, Philips Research Labs, and NASA. He was the editor-in-chief of the Automated Software Engineering Journal and an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, and currently serves on the editorial boards of the Requirements Engineering Journal and a number of other international journals.
Serving as the new EIC of the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems will be Ivan Stojmenovic, a professor in the School of Information Technology and Engineering at the University of Ottawa. He holds a PhD in mathematics from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, and the University of Zagreb, Croatia.
Stojmenovic, an IEEE Fellow, is currently an editor for a dozen journals and founder and EIC of three more. He has published more than 250 papers and edited four books on wireless ad hoc and sensor networks and applied algorithms. He has coauthored 10 articles in TPDS, and two of these are ranked third and eighth in citations among all TPDS articles.
Ravi Sandhu has been named the new EIC of the IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing. Sandhu, who holds a PhD from Rutgers University, is the founding executive director of the Institute for Cyber Security at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Sandhu has written more than 180 technical papers. His seminal papers on role-based access control led to RBAC becoming the dominant form of access control in commercial systems. His current projects include the usage control model, new models for group-centric information sharing, security in social networking, botnet analysis and defense, multilevel-secure SOA, and the PEI method for secure systems design. He is the founding editor-in-chief of the ACM Transactions on Information and System Security and chairman of ACM SIGSAC.
About the IEEE Computer Society
With nearly 85,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society is the world’s leading organization of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, and the largest of the 39 societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Computer Society is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computer and information-processing technology. The Society serves the information and career-development needs of today’s computing researchers and practitioners with technical journals, magazines, conferences, books, conference publications, certifications, and online courses.
