Call for Nominations: Editors and Associate Editors of IEEE Trans. on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE)
Deadline 1 October 2020
The IEEE Trans. on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE) is soliciting nominations for multiple Editors and Associate Editors, with a term beginning January 2021. Automation is in an unprecedented exciting and challenging era in view of machine learning, artificial intelligence, Industrial 4.0, and supply chain management during and after the COVID-19 pandemics. Editors and Associate Editors play important roles in ensuring the quality of publications and in guiding the general development of the Transactions, in multiple capacities including implementing reviews of manuscripts according to IEEE guidelines, soliciting emerging topical articles for special issues, guiding the overall direction of the publication, and providing feedback from the readership. Active participations are expected in the annual IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE CASE) and in at least one of the two editorial board meetings held annually in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Robotics & Automation (ICRA) and IEEE CASE. Furthermore, it is mandatory to participate in T-ASE Editorial Board Workshop (during IEEE CASE), if it is offered.
The term of an Editor or Associate Editor normally consists of a one-year probation period followed by four years (for Editor) or two years (for Associate Editor) of additional service if performance is satisfactory. Candidates should have a strong technical background in T-ASE related areas and excellent English language skills. Previous publications in T-ASE and participations in IEEE CASE are strongly preferred.
Nominations should include a resume (not to exceed three pages), a complete list of journal publications, previous experience with publications as a reviewer or in editorial capacities, and areas of technical expertise. Nominations of industrial, governmental and female candidates and candidates from Central and South America and Africa are especially encouraged. Please submit nominations in a single pdf file to Editorial Assistant Rebecca Hytowitz, (email@example.com) or T-ASE Editor-in-Chief Michael Wang (firstname.lastname@example.org), by 1 October 2020.
