Call for Nominations


ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing Systems

The second term of the current co-Editors-in-Chief (EiCs) of the ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing Systems (TOMPECS) 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.

Nominations, including self-nominations, are invited for a three-year term as TOMPECS EiC, beginning on January 1, 2020. The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM will provide appropriate administrative support.

The EiC is responsible for maintaining the highest editorial quality, for setting technical direction of the papers published in TOMPECS, and for maintaining a reasonable pipeline of articles for publication. He/she has the final say on acceptance of papers, size of the Editorial Board, and appointment of Associate Editors. The EiC is expected to adhere to the commitments expressed in the policy on Roles and Responsibilities in ACM Publishing. For more information about the role of the EiC, see 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 and a statement of the candidate's vision for the future development of TOMPECS. Self-nominations are encouraged. The deadline for submitting nominations is 30 November 2019, although nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.

Please send all nominations to the nominating committee chair, Vishal Misra ([log in to unmask]).
