IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design on Integrated Circuits and Systems is inviting nominations (including self-nominations) for Associate Editor (AEs) Positions for the term starting January 1, 2018, to December 31, 2019.
An Associate Editor is a critical role for the journal and the community it represents. As an AE you have visibility into the emerging research, practical advances as well as an important part of your own visibility to the broader community. As an AE, you are the subject matter expert in one of the sub-disciplines covered by the journal. As such you drive a prompt and fair review process for submitted content and seek to attract submissions that may represent growing technical trends.
We especially seek nominations for candidates who have a vision for growing the publication into new areas in integrated circuits and systems including topics such as "hardware" security, privacy mechanisms, automation methods and tools for embedded and cyber-physical systems. Any other important topics, as reflected in important community conferences such as DAC, DATE, ASP-DAC, ESWeek, and ICCAD are welcome for consideration as we constitute a new editorial board beginning January 2018.
Nominees should have a strong record of publications in top-tier design automation and system conferences and be willing to commit significant time and effort to ensure timely and high-quality reviews of the submitted papers. Experts from Industry may cite product development expertise or commercial accomplishments in lieu of external publications and are also strongly encouraged to apply.
If interested, please send a short CV (< 3 pages), clearly identifying sub-topics of your expertise and a one-page statement with your thoughts to improve the quality of IEEE TCAD, its responsiveness to community needs and your proposed role(s). These documents should be sent as a PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 10, 2017.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the incoming EIC, Rajesh Gupta at email@example.com.
