Starting in 2012, TMC will be going paperless! The journal will be published in a form called OnlinePlus (http://www.computer.org/onlineplus), in which the format and pagination of a paper issue is maintained, since citation indices and academic promotion processes heavily depend upon these. Subscribers will, at a lower subscription rate, be given access to the full online archive. They will also receive, once every quarter, a small booklet containing abstracts of published articles from three issues and a CD-ROM containing electronic copies of these articles.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Dr. Mani Srivastava for his phenomenal service to the community as Editor-in-Chief. During his tenure, he has raised the quality and the visibility of the journal and has managed its growth and evolution in impressive fashion. He has left big shoes to fill!
I would also like to welcome our new Associate Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Ram Ramanathan, who is Principal Research Scientist at Raytheon BBN. The journal has grown in size and stature over the years and has reached a point where it can benefit greatly from a second person at the helm, and Ram has graciously agreed to take on that responsibility. Ram has played a leadership role in the field of mobile computing for nearly two decades, and was also a former associate editor of TMC.
Our Editorial Board continues to evolve, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the new members, whose biographies appear below, and thank the outgoing ones.
I would like to welcome aboard several new Associate Editors to fill gaps left by Associate Editors whose terms expired, and to strengthen the Editorial Board’s expertise in emerging areas. It is my pleasure to introduce Fan Bai, Ranveer Chandra, Olivier Dousse, Michael Fang, Christina Fragouli, Allen MacKenzie, and Mihail Sichitiu. Together, they bring expertise in vehicular networks, cognitive radios, cellular networks, network information theory, game theory, location management, and localization. They also increase our international and industry representation. I would like to thank them for taking time from their busy schedules to volunteer for this important service to the community.
Finally, I would like to acknowledge the contributions of four Associate Editors whose terms ended recently or who stepped down for personal reasons: Samir Das, Aura Ganz, Srikanth Krishnamurthy, and Marwan Krunz. They brought unique perspectives and expertise to the journal, and we are the richer for it. I greatly appreciate the dedication, diligence, and promptness they have shown during their terms.
TMC continues to be a very desirable publication venue for mobile and wireless computing and networking, and this would not be possible without the support of our readers and authors, the members of the Editorial Board, the Steering Committee, and the Computer Society staff. I look forward to hearing feedback from our readership and receiving suggestions for ways to improve the journal in the coming years.
