Editor-in-Chief Call for Nominations

The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of ACM Computing Surveys (CSUR) is coming to an end, and the ACM Publications Board has established a search committee to assist the Board with selecting the next EiC, which will be Chaired by Chris Hankin.

In addition to this search process, the ACM Publications Board is in the initial stages of developing a plan to substantially expand the scope of the journal, with the goals of (1) providing broader coverage of the computing field, including an increased focus on key expanding research and application areas; and (2) strengthening ACM’s overall portfolio with high-impact, relevant, and timely publications of interest to our community and society at large. 

As a result, the ACM Publications Board is open to bold suggestions for the future of CSUR. This may include a vision that transforms CSUR as a single conventional journal into a subtitled series that includes greater representation of computing and AI, multidisciplinary computing relevant to specific domains, the impact of computing on human society, and similar major trends. It may also include a vision that transforms the style, impact, and readership base of CSUR to inject more future-directed critical reviews, of greater interest to a broad reader constituency, and with a far higher impact.

The successful Editor-in-Chief candidate will be the one whose proposed vision aligns with future directions and aims of the ACM Publications Board, as well as the candidate who is most experienced and best positioned to implement that vision. Nominations, including self-nominations, are welcome from June 20 through August 1 2019. 

Nominations should include a:
1.Detailed description of the candidate’s vision for the future of ACM Computing Surveys
2.List of qualifications for the EiC role
3.Current CV

Please note that any candidate must be willing and able to commit to an initial three-year term in order to implement the anticipated major changes. ACM EiC appointments all have a maximum of two three-year terms. The position of EiC is an entirely voluntary one, which comes with administrative support from ACM. Beyond planning and implementing strategic editorial changes for this publication, the EiC will be responsible for maintaining high quality editorial standards, setting the technical direction of paper content and style, and maintaining a reasonable pipeline of articles that match the publication schedule.

Interested candidates should contact the Chair of the search committee for an initial discussion, and to learn more about ACM’s aims for this important publication. Please send all nominations to the ACM Computing Surveys EiC Search Chair at:    Chris Hankin, c.hankin@imperial.ac.uk

The search committee members are:
Chris Hankin (Imperial College London, Chair)
Azzedine Boukerche (University of Ottawa)
Diane Cook (Washington State University)
Enrico Nardelli (University of Rome “Tor Vergata”)
Sharon Oviatt (Monash University)
Aaron Quigley (St Andrews University)
Hao Yu (Southern University of Science and Technology of China)
Divesh Srivastava (AT&T Labs, Publications Board Liaison)
