This is start of the second year of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing. I hope you enjoyed the first year. TMC has experienced a large growth in submission rate over its first year of publication. I hope this indicates a strong and growing interest in the area of mobile computing. The Editorial Board and Steering Committee, along with the Computer Society publications staff, have worked hard to ensure timely, high quality reviews that, in the end, result in a high quality publication. Much credit also goes to the many of you who have served as reviewers for TMC submissions. We all hope you will continue to support TMC through your submissions, offers to help, and readership.
