The IEEE Computer Society seeks nominations and applications for the volunteer position of the Editor in Chief (EIC) of IEEE Annals of the History of Computing magazine. This quarterly publication is an active center for the collection and dissemination of information on historical projects and organizations, oral history activities, and international conferences.
The EIC is appointed by the President of the IEEE Computer Society for a two-year term, upon the consent of the Society’s Board of Governors and based on recommendations from the search committee and the Publications Board. The position can be extended for a second two-year term upon mutual agreement of the EIC and the Computer Society. The EIC is responsible for the volunteer leadership of Annals including soliciting high-quality manuscripts, coordinating and overseeing the peer-review process, selecting and assisting guest editors of special issues, recommending candidates for the editorial board, and chairing the editorial board. The EIC also develops budgets and plans for the publication, serves as a non-voting, ex-officio member of the Publications Board, and works in general with volunteer and staff to ensure and maintain the timely publication of a journal of exceptional high quality.
Applications and nominations should include a complete curriculum vita, a brief plan for the future of Annals, and a letter of support from the candidate’s institution or employer. The plan should include (1) the candidate’s perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing Annals, (2) the expected tasks to be undertaken if appointed as EIC, (3) the projected organization needed to accomplish the tasks, and (4) any funding requirements needed to accomplish the tasks.
