Dusit Niyato

2023 Member-at-Large - Asia/Pacific Region Candidate

Position Statement

Over 15 years, I have been serving ComSoc and its Members in various functions including as Editor-in-Chief, TPC Co-Chair of conferences, and Member of the ComSoc Fellow Evaluation Committee. I would like to use the experience to build stronger and more inclusive ComSoc. If elected, I will dedicate my effort to

  • Provide additional venues for new disruptive technology initiatives (e.g. new conference tracks, special issues/sections, journals) and incorporate social media as tools to disseminate technological and professional information for ComSoc members
  • Further improve industry involvement and support to conferences, publications, committees, and boards (e.g., industry perspectives, technology panels, and conference organizers)
  • Promote diversity (including age, gender, and region) within ComSoc
  • Improve the high-quality standard of ComSoc technical events, conferences, and publications, and make them more accessible by encouraging open access and facilitating low-cost online participations
  • Introduce more venues for interdisciplinary researches and bridges among ComSoc and other IEEE societies.
