The IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing (TMC) is now in its seventh year, and has established an excellent reputation in the research community as the journal of choice for mobile computing. The quality and quantity of submissions that TMC receives are indicative of this. However, as I noted in my previous editorial, TMC remains very much a networking-centered journal in the types of papers it currently attracts. We hope to address this by attracting papers that reflect other aspects of mobile computing, such as novel platforms, energy management, operating systems extensions, user interfaces, deployment experience, low-power circuits, and signal processing. Having associate editors with expertise and high visibility in these areas is important to attracting papers from researchers in these fields and to be able to provide them with meaningful and fair reviews. It is with great pleasure that I therefore welcome 13 new associate editors to TMC's editorial board, many of whom are well-regarded researchers in these new areas, while the others strengthen our networking core. The new associate editors are: Saurabh Bagchi, Mark Corner, Sanjay K. Jha, Bhaskar Krishnamachari, Margaret Martonosi, Radha Poovendran, Anand Raghunathan, Ram Ramanathan, Paolo Santi, Tajana Šimunic Rosing, Alex C. Snoeren, Wade Trappe, and Nalini Venkatasubramanian. Their biographies are included below.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Elizabeth Belding, Bharat Bhargava, Hesham El Gamal, Yuguang "Michael" Fang, Virgil Gligor, Songwu Lu, Janise McNair, Adrian Perrig, Sumit Roy, Raghupathy Sivakumar, Krishna Sivalingam, and Vassilis Tsaoussidis, who retired from the editorial board in recent months. In addition, I am saddened to report that one member of our editorial board, Jennifer Hou, passed away in December. Like any journal, TMC depends on the incredible voluntary efforts of people such as these associate editors for sustaining its high quality, and I truly appreciate their dedicated services in recent years.
In closing, I would like to thank our readers and authors for their support of TMC, and I welcome you to send me feedback and suggestions about the journal.
