Martin Haenggi was appointed as the inaugural Chair of the Executive Editorial Committee of the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications.
The goals of the committee are to efficiently assign incoming papers to the appropriate Area Editor, and in cases where the paper is out of scope or clearly below the standard expected for the Transactions, to reject it summarily. The committee also helps in determining key trends in submitted papers and provides the Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Jeff Andrews from the University of Texas at Austin, with advice on how to better structure the journal’s editorial board.
Haenggi’s first task was to assemble a committee of six people with a reputation for technical excellence, administrative efficiency, and sound judgement. The committee members are Prof. Neelesh Mehta (Indian Institute of Science), Prof. Ralf Müller (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg), Prof. Tony Quek (Singapore University of Technology and Design), Dr. Peter Rost (NEC Laboratories Europe), Prof. Matthew Valenti (West Virginia University), and Prof. Angela Yingjun Zhang (The Chinese University of Hong Kong).
The IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications is a premier archival journal, committed to the timely publication of very high-quality, peer-reviewed, original papers that advance the state-of-the art and applications of wireless communications. The journal receives close to 2,500 submissions per year, with an acceptance rate of about 25%. In addition to the Editor-in-Chief and the Executive Editorial Committee, the editorial board includes 8 Area Editors and 82 Editors.
