Message from the EiC

Welcome to the January 2020 issue of VTS Mobile World – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. This is our first issue for the year, and also it is my first issue as Editor-in-Chief.

Under the excellent leadership of former Editor-in-Chief Abbas Jamalipour, VTS Mobile World has remained a great source of information on Society activities and the great world of vehicular technology. We are extremely grateful for Professor Jamalipour’s great contributions, and he will continue to contribute in his Message from the President as part of his new role in VTS.

I am always available to hear your feedback; just send me a note at Richard.Yu@ieee.org. Happy holidays!  Read More...

Message from the President

As Executive Vice President for 2018–9, Abbas energized the Society with his leadership and support of then-President Alexander Wyglinski. Abbas has contributed extensively to VTS and to the area of mobile and wireless communications in general.

After his self-introduction, Abbas presents us with his vision for VTS in 2020 and beyond. As EiC of VTS Mobile World and on behalf of all members of the VTS Board of Governors, I would like to welcome Abbas to this challenging role and wish him all the best. –Ed.  Read More...
