The IEEE Computer Society's policy limits the terms of the members of its Editorial Board. This allows new people and expertise to come in and benefits the growth and vitality of the journal. Such a major rotation within TVCG's Editorial Board took place during the first few months of 2007 with 10 Associate Editors stepping down and new ones taking over.
On behalf of the IEEE Computer Society and TVCG's Editorial Board, I would like to express our appreciation and thanks to the retiring Associate Editors Julie Dorsey, Ron Fedkiw, Michael Gleicher, Eduard Gröller, Charles Hansen, Ken Joy, David Kao, David Laidlaw, Anselmo Lastra, and Chris Shaw. Especially, and also on behalf of the former Editor-in-Chief, David Ebert, we are extremely grateful to Chuck Hansen for his great service as Associate Editor-in-Chief for the last three years.
At the same time it is my pleasure to announce the two new TVCG Associate Editors-in-Chief: Ming Lin and Baining Guo. They have both been on the Editorial Board for more than two years and their service to the journal has already been remarkable. I am looking forward to their support in further improving the quality and timeliness of TVCG. Furthermore, I am happy to introduce Min Chen, Kwan-Liu Ma, Torsten Möller, Penny Rheingans, Han-Wei Shen, and Philipp Slusallek, who have recently joined TVCG as Associate Editors. Below are biographical sketches listing their accomplishments and areas of expertise. The Editorial Board is pleased to welcome these outstanding individuals to their new role.
