The IEEE Council on Design Automation (CEDA) invites nominations for the position of Editor-in-Chief (EiC) for the IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems (TCAD). Self-nominations are permitted.
TCAD is a monthly published forum for papers in the area of electronic design automation and computer-aided design of integrated and embedded circuits and systems with analog, digital, mixed-signal, optical, or microwave components.
The term of duty of the new EiC begins on January 1, 2018, and ends December 31, 2019. The start of the period may be antedated if applicable. A period of approximately three months prior to the beginning of the term will be spent on enabling a smooth transition from the current EiC to the new EiC.
An EiC Selection Committee will evaluate all nominations and make recommendations to the CEDA Executive Committee for appointment based upon the CEDA bylaws. After the EiC is chosen, the Selection Committee will identify the Deputy EiC, in agreement with the newly appointed EiC. The EiC will then constitute an own Editorial Board of Associate Editors.
The nomination package should include:
- Name, postal address, email address and telephone numbers of the nominee, and the publication (IEEE Trans. on CAD) for which the candidate is nominated.
- Written confirmation that the candidate intends to accept a nomination for the EiC position and has the necessary resources to fulfill the position.
- Curriculum vitae of the nominee, including the track record with IEEE service and publications details, with particular reference to TCAD.
- Position statement of the nominee indicating the view of the candidate on the future of IEEE TCAD, the TCAD-specific opportunities and challenges, and any plans that the candidate wants to pursue.
The nominee must be a member in good standing of the IEEE. Desirable qualities of the candidates include an established track record of technical accomplishments, leadership, integrity and ethical standards, demonstrable organizational and management skills, and an energetic eagerness to continue moving the journal forward toward visibly higher levels of accomplishment and contributions to the relevant technical community.
