  • Encouraging more emerging-technology oriented efforts in conference and journal activities;
  • Supporting more cross-society collaborations in journal steering and conference reform;
  • Promoting more industry participations and providing more academia vs. industry teamwork opportunities;
  • Making ComSoc operation policies more transparent and opening more doors for new members to get involved.
