Call for Nominations 
ACM Transactions on Accessible Computing
The term of the current Editors-in-Chief (EiC) of the ACM Transactions on 
Accessible Computing (TACCESS) is coming to an end, and the ACM 
Publications Board has set up a nominating committee to assist the Board 
in selecting the next EiC.  TACCESS was established in 2008 and has been 
experiencing steady growth, with 43 original submissions and 82 total 
submissions received in 2018.
Nominations, including self-nominations, are invited for a three-year term 
as TACCESS EiC, beginning on July 1, 2019.  The EiC appointment may be 
renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM 
will provide appropriate administrative support. 
TACCESS has traditionally had co-EiCs: Vicki Hanson and Andrew Sears; and 
Kathleen McCoy and Matt Huenerfauth.  We encourage nominations from pairs 
of people wishing to serve as co-EiCs, as well as individuals interested 
in serving independently or co-serving.
Appointed by the ACM Publications Board, Editors-in-Chief (EiCs) of ACM 
journals are delegated full responsibility for the editorial management of 
the journal consistent with the journal's charter and general ACM 
policies. The Board relies on EiCs to ensure that the content of the 
journal is of high quality and that the editorial review process is both 
timely and fair. They have final say on acceptance of papers, size of the 
Editorial Board, and appointment of Associate Editors. A complete list of 
responsibilities is found in the ACM Volunteer Editors Position 
Descriptions. Additional information can be found in the following 
∑        Rights and Responsibilities in ACM Publishing
∑       ACM's Evaluation Criteria for Editors-in-Chief
Nominations should include a vita along with a brief statement of why the 
nominee should be considered. Self-nominations are encouraged, and should 
include a statement of the candidate's vision for the future development 
of TACCESS. The deadline for submitting nominations is April 15, 2019, 
although nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is
