Message from the EiC

Welcome to the second issue of VTS Mobile World in 2018—your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. In this issue, our new President opens the door to a unique feature of IEEE: Volunteerism, which according to his note would enable professional and personal growth.

Our Vice President—Mobile Radio also gives an update on his portfolio within VTS activities. And we introduce newly-reelected member of the VTS Board of Governors Professor Lajos Hanzo, and thus begin our series of introductions to the five members elected for the term 2018‒20.

I look forward to hearing from you in 2018 on how we can better serve all VTS members. I can be reached at a.jamalipour@ieee.orgRead more...
