Call for Nominations: Editor-In-Chief of ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction

The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  (TOCHI) is coming to an end shortly, 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 TOCHI EiC, beginning September 1, 2015. The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM will provide appropriate administrative support.

The Editor in Chief is responsible for maintaining the highest editorial quality, for setting technical direction of the papers published in TOCHI, and for maintaining a reasonable pipeline of articles for publication. He/she has 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 Rights 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. Self-nominations are encouraged, and they should include a statement of the candidate’s vision for the future development of TOCHI. The deadline for submitting nominations is July 1, 2015, although nominations will continue to be considered until the position is filled.

Please send all nominations to the chair of the nominating committee, Robert Jacob (jacob@cs.tufts.edu).

The search committee members are:

  • Robert J.K. Jacob (Tufts University), Chair
  • Scott E. Hudson (Carnegie Mellon University)
  • Dan R. Olsen, Jr. (Brigham Young University)

MobileHCI now accepting TOCHI paper presentations!

For a number of years, authors of accepted TOCHI papers have had the opportunity to present their work at the CHI conference. Starting last year, this was expanded to also include the UIST and CSCW conferences. Today, we are happy to announce that MobileHCI has become the latest conference to accept presentations of TOCHI papers!

This means that if you have a paper accepted by TOCHI at anytime in the future, or if you have recently had a TOCHI paper accepted and not had the opportunity to present it elsewhere yet, you may elect to present your paper at MobileHCI.  Authors may still only present at one of the available venues and presentations must occur within approximately a year of the acceptance date of their paper.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the TOCHI Information Director.

All new web site!

As if it wasn’t already obvious to anyone who has visited our web site before, I wanted to announce that TOCHI has finally brought its web presence into the twenty-first century with the brand new site that you see before you. Our new site is substantially easier to update and edit than our previous version, which should allow us to improve our content at a faster rate and enable our special issue editors to better maintain content about their issues.

Along with the update, we have also taken a pass through the various instructions and other materials. Hopefully the content is clearer than it was previously, but if you find anything confusing, please be sure to let me know.

Key to improving the web site was George O’Brien from Goge Design Studio, who did most of the work.  If you need an updated web site, please consider sending some work George’s way.
