Message from the EiC

Welcome to the March 2018 issue of VTS Mobile World—your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. In this issue, our President presents his message on increasing membership values to industry including some great initiatives VTS had in recent years.

Later on, the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, the highly-ranked VTS journal, provides a report to the membership on the status of the Transactions. A call for new candidates to the successful Distinguished Lecturer program, introduction of Washington VTS Chapter, and a call for VTS Awards nominations are among other news in this issue.

I hope you enjoy reading this issue and again, I look forward to hear from you on how we can better serve all VTS members. I can be reached at a.jamalipour@ieee.org.  Read More...
