The IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing ( TMC) has completed five years since its inception in January 2002. The quality and quantity of submissions TMC receives is a clear indicator of its good reputation within the research community. The editorial board is working hard to maintain and, indeed, further improve this reputation. To handle the large number and breadth of submissions, over the last year, we added several new associate editors with diverse backgrounds, and also increased the publication frequency to once a month. We plan to add new associate editors to further diversify the editorial board and to improve the timeliness of the review process. These changes are expected to help maintain relatively low submission to publication delays. In this issue, I would like to introduce two new associate editors, Sumit Roy and Stephan Weiss. Sumit Roy's biography is included below. Stephan Weiss' biography is unfortunately not available for publication at this time. I would also like to thank the following people for the services they have provided: John Heideman, Jean-Pierre Hubaux, Ravi R. Jain, Robin Kravets, P.R. Kumar, and Wenwu Zhu, who have stepped down recently from their associate editor positions. We are able to maintain the high standards of TMC only due to the help of such dedicated associate editors, as well as the referees who volunteer their time to evaluate the manuscripts.
Let me take this opportunity to thank our readers and authors for their support of TMC. Please feel free to contact me if you have any feedback or suggestions for the editorial board.
