It has been a good tradition of TVCG to limit the terms of the members of its Editorial Board in order to allow new people and expertise to come in for the benefit of the journal. Such a major rotation within the Editorial Board took place during the first few months of 2009 with several Associate Editors stepping back 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 Craig Gotsman, Aaron Hertzmann, Larry Hodges, Hong Qin, and Ben Watson.
At the same time, it is my pleasure to introduce Leif P. Kobbelt, Klaus Mueller, Helmut Pottmann, and Anthony Steed 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.
Klaus Mueller received the MS degree in biomedical engineering and the PhD degree in computer science, both from The Ohio State University. He is currently an associate professor in the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University, where he also holds coappointments in the Biomedical Engineering and Radiology Departments. His current research interests are computer and volume graphics, visualization, visual analytics, medical imaging, and computer vision. He won the US National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2001 and has served as a cochair at various conferences, such as IEEE Visualization, the Volume Graphics Symposium, and the Fully 3D Workshop on High-Performance Image Reconstruction. He has authored and coauthored more than 100 journal and conference papers, and he has participated in 15 tutorials at international conferences on various topics in visualization and medical imaging. He is a senior member of the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society. For more information, see http://www.cs.sunysb.edu/~mueller.
