EIC Applications Invited for Affective Computing Journal
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 5 August, 2009 -- The IEEE Computer Society is seeking applicants to serve as editor-in-chief of the newly launched IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing. The initial three-year term of the new EIC will begin 1 January, 2010.
The IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing will be a cross-disciplinary and international archive journal aimed at disseminating results of research on the design of systems that can recognize, interpret, and simulate human emotions and related affective phenomena.
The journal will publish original research on the principles and theories explaining why and how affective factors condition interaction between humans and technology, on how affective sensing and simulation techniques can inform our understanding of human affective processes, and on the design, implementation, and evaluation of systems that carefully consider affect among the factors that influence their usability.

EIC applicants must have employer support and should possess expertise in the computer science and engineering community, have editorial experience, and be able to lead an editorial board and work effectively with technical and publishing professionals.
Prospective candidates should provide a resume or curriculum vitae, a brief plan (or vision statement) for the publication’s future, and a letter of support from their institution or employer. Material should be sent as PDF files to Alicia Stickley at email@example.com by 14 September, 2009.
The online-only IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing will launch in 2010 as a biannual publication, moving to quarterly the following year. Subscribers will have online access while IEEE All Society Periodicals Package subscribers will receive the CD archive. Subscriptions will be available after 15 August, 2009.
In addition to the IEEE Computer Society, TAC will be co-sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society and the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. The IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology, the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society, the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society will serve as technical co-sponsors.
With the launch of TAC, the IEEE Computer Society will publish or sponsor over 30 magazines and scholarly journals, as well as books and conference proceedings, covering all aspects of computer science and engineering. All are peer reviewed and held to the highest standards of editorial quality.
