Issue No. 05 - May (2003 vol. 25)
We would like to announce the retirement of associate editors Henrik Christensen, Michal Irani, David Jacobs, and Randal Nelson. All of them served for four years. Due to other professional committments, Professor Peter Belhumeur has decided to retire after serving for two years. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to these outstanding AEs
We also would like to take this opportunity to welcome Professor Alan Yuille as a new associate editor. Alan needs no introduction to the computer vision community. He will handle papers in Bayesian methods, statistical methods, object detection and recognition, illumination modeling and image segmentation.

Alan Yuille received the BA degree in mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 1976. He completed the PhD degree in theoretical physics at Cambridge in 1980 and worked as a postdoctoral research in physics at the University of Texas at Austin and the Institute for Theoretical Physics at Santa Barbara, California. From 1982 to 1986, he worked at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Following that, he was with the Division of Applied Sciences at Harvard from 1986 to 1995, rising to the position of associate professor. From 1995 to 2002, he worked as a senior scientist at the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute in San Francisco, California. In 2002, he became a full professor at the University of California at Los Angeles. His research interests are in mathematical modeling of artificial and biological vision. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed publications in vision, neural networks, and physics. He has coauthored two books Data Fusion for Sensory Information Processing Systems by J.J. Clark and A.L. Yuille and Two- and Three- Dimensional Patterns of the Face by P.W. Hallinan, G.G. Gordon, A.L. Yuille, P.J. Giblin, and D.B. Mumfordand has edited the book Active Vision with A. Blake.
