Message from the EiC

Welcome to the third issue of VTS Mobile World in 2019 – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter.

In this issue, the Society President provides an informative report on this year’s sponsored events. The Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions of Vehicular Technology outlines the journal’s high impact in 2018.  Calls for nominations for VTS technical and service awards—as well as for the Board of Governors elections in 2019—are among several other interesting articles.

I look forward to hearing from you on how we can better serve all VTS members. I can be reached at a.jamalipour@ieee.org.  Read More...
