On behalf of our associate editors, the TMC steering committee, and the TMC staff, we wish you a happy and prosperous New Year! As we discussed in last month’s editorial, TMC has successfully made the transition to the OnlinePlus™ format. OnlinePlus provides big benefits for our subscribers, being 20 percent cheaper than last year’s paper-based subscription, in addition to being environmentally sound and providing convenient and ubiquitous access to all our issues. We thank you for continuing to support the Transactions and look forward to hearing from you on ways to improve its content and delivery.
In the coming year, in addition to continuing to publish top-quality archival material, we plan to bring you selected outstanding papers from highly selective conferences such as DySPAN, MobiCom, and MobiSys in special sections of upcoming issues. We hope, with this endeavor, to try to expose our readership to a nice balance between definitive research in various subfields of mobile computing and cutting-edge research on impactful problems of relatively immediate importance.
Over the past year, our Editorial Board has performed outstanding and tireless service on behalf of the mobile computing community, and for this we thank them. The Board continues to evolve, and we take this opportunity to welcome several new Associate Editors: Raouf Boutaba, Augustin Chaintreau, Romit Roy Choudhury, Sneha Kasera, Li Erran Li, Archan Misra, Michael J. Neely, Cristina Nita-Rotaru, Injong Rhee, Vikram Srinivasan, Ravi Sundaram, Kun Tan, and Steve Weber. They collectively strengthen our expertise in cellular systems, disruption tolerant networking, mobile computing systems, wireless security, wireless network optimization, game theory, cognitive radios, and information theory. We are excited to have them on board and thank them for agreeing to serve.
Finally, we'd like to also acknowledge several Associate Editors whose terms recently expired: Tracy Camp, Martin Haenggi, David Kotz, T.V. Lakshman, Mingyan Liu, Sanjay Shakkottai, Rajeev Shorey, Tajana Simunic-Rosing, Andras Valko, and Yongguang Zhang. Their incredible service over these few years has contributed greatly to increasing the journal’s quality and reputation, and they will be missed! We wish them the best in their future endeavors.
