Issue No. 01 - June (2013 vol. 1)

It is an honor to present the first issue of the IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC). TETC is the newest and only Open Access (OA) Transactions of the IEEE Computer Society (CS), a professional organization that dynamically remains at the forefront of the computing field by embracing multi-facet technologies across science and engineering. TETC has far reaching scopes and objectives across the whole spectrum of publication activities of the IEEE CS; in fact, it complements the current peer-reviewed publications and positions its portfolio to tremendously benefit from the publication of a different type of Transactions. While existing Transactions of the CS publish articles in a specific field, TETC focuses its publication activities to Special Issues/Sections (SISs) covering interdisciplinary and emerging areas in computing; this diverse coverage allows the publication of survey articles as well as manuscripts (if pertinent and approved by the Guest Editors) in technical themes that are promising, but still in an initial state of evolution. TETC therefore provides a new forum of the highest quality by which new technological advances are delivered to the readership as well as aiding our community to identify venues to sustain the continued growth of the IEEE CS and its activities with the discovery of new technical directions of interest.
