Issue No. 01 - January/February (2003 vol. 15)
It is my great pleasure to introduce three new members of the Editorial Board of TKDE: Professor Daniel A. Keim, Professor Heikki Mannila, and Professor Rajeev Motwani. They are internationally known and highly regarded for their work on knowledge and data engineering. We are very fortunate to have their services for the journal.
At the same time, I would also like to thank the four retiring TKDE editors, who have dedicated their time to manage papers over the past four years: Professor Adele Howe, Professor Michael Rung-Tsong Lyu, Professor Z. Meral Ozsoyoglu, and Dr. Marek Rusinkiewicz.
