As we begin the 11th year of TVCG, I am happy to report that our journal continues to grow in submissions, quality, and timeliness. For 2004, we had a 30 percent increase in submissions, while the time from manuscript submission to initial decision decreased to an average of two months. This quick decision time, along with our extremely high quality review process, is essential to ensure that TVCG remains one of the top publication venues for the entire field of computer graphics and visualization. I want to thank all of our reviewers and associate editors for their outstanding work.
I would also like to thank the IEEE Computer Society Publications department for both their efficient, high-quality production of submitted manuscripts and their support of our bimonthly publication schedule. Currently, the time from submission of final articles until appearance in the IEEE Computer Society Digital Libary is under three months!
On behalf of the IEEE Computer Society and TVCG's Editorial Board, I would like to express our appreciation and thanks to retiring Associate Editor Jim Thomas for his service in helping make our journal so successful. It is also my pleasure to introduce John Stasko who has recently joined the Editorial Board. Below is a biographical sketch listing his accomplishments and areas of expertise. The Editorial Board is pleased to welcome John to our Board.
