The IEEE Council on Design Automation (CEDA) invites nominations for the position of Editor-in-Chief (EiC) for the IEEE Embedded Systems Letters (ESL). Self-nominations are permitted.

ESL is a quarterly published forum for rapid dissemination (4 to 6 weeks) of short papers in the area of embedded systems and software.

The term of duty of the new EiC begins on January 1, 2016 and ends December 31, 2017. The start of the period may be antedated if applicable. A period of approximately three months prior to the beginning of the term will be spent on enabling a smooth transition from the current EiC to the new EiC.

An EiC Selection Committee will evaluate all nominations and make recommendations to the CEDA Executive Committee for appointment based upon the CEDA bylaws. After the EiC is chosen, the Selection Committee will identify the Deputy EiC, in agreement with the newly appointed EiC. The EiC will then constitute an own Editorial Board of Associate Editors.

Nominations should be sent electronically to Lynn Bannister ( and should be received by March 15, 2015 to ensure full consideration. The nomination package should include:

  • Name, postal address, email address and telephone numbers of the nominee and the publication (IEEE Embedded Systems Letters) for which the candidate is nominated.
  • Written confirmation that the candidate intends to accept a nomination for the EiC position and has the necessary resources to fulfill the position.
  • Curriculum vitae of the nominee, including the track record with IEEE service and publications details, with particular reference to ESL.
  • Position statement of the nominee indicating the view of the candidate on the future of IEEE ESL, the ESL-specific opportunities and challenges, and any plans that the candidate wants to pursue.

The nominee must be a member in good standing of the IEEE. Desirable qualities of the candidates include: An established track record of technical accomplishments, leadership, integrity and ethical standards, demonstrable organizational and management skills, and an energetic eagerness to continue moving the journal forward toward visibly higher levels of accomplishment and contributions to the relevant technical community.
