IEEE Communications Standards Magazine is co-sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. It is administrated by the CommStandards Steering Committee, whose current members are: Andrzej Jajszczyk, Alex Gelman, Osman Gebizlioglu, James Irvine, Steve Gorshe (Chair) and Raouf Boutaba (Director of Magazines, non-voting member).
Communications Standards has been incubated as a supplement within IEEE Communications Magazine, and this successful phase led to its recent approval as a standalone magazine. The new magazine will be published quarterly in 2016 and 2017, with the expectation that it will become a bi-monthly publication starting in 2018.
The CommStandards Steering Committee is soliciting nominations for the Editor-in-Chief candidates. The selected candidate is expected to assume the roles and responsibilities of the Editor-in-Chief including the selection of associate editors, governance of the entire editorial board, and ensuring that the standards of the magazine are sustained. The period of service will be two years, renewable for one additional one-year term.
The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for appointing Editorial Board members, setting goals, updating topical areas, overseeing the review process, handling appeals, and handling cases of plagiarism among other topics.
Eligibility: Must have both substantial experience in communications standards and a strong record in IEEE publications editor role(s). It is expected that the candidate will be a member of IEEE Communications Society. The ideal candidate is well respected in the field, is known for ethics and integrity, and has demonstrated management skills.
Selection Process: The steering committee will accept nominations for the EIC position until 30 April 2016. Based on a holistic evaluation of all EIC candidates, a ranked short list will be generated, and the final selected candidate will be passed to the ComSoc President in consultation with VTS President to make the appointment.
Nomination Process: Please email Steve Gorshe (firstname.lastname@example.org ) a letter of interest including qualifications (and CV). If you have any question or concern for the nomination process, please contact any member of the CommStandards Steering Committee.

LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology was standardized within the 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) as part of the 3GPP Release 8 feature set. Since 2009, LTE systems have evolved from all previous incumbent cellular systems (GSM, WCDMA, CDMA2000) and the functionality has enhanced through subsequent 3GPP Rel. 9, 10, and 11. LTE has proven to be the fastest growing cellular technology and now looks to expand beyond traditional cellular markets. Enhancements resulting from the recent 3GPP Release 12, and planned functions to be included in Release 13, will enable the LTE technology for Critical and Tactical Communications.
