SIGMM Thanks Thomas Plagemann for services as Editor-in-Chief of Multimedia Systems Journal and welcomes the appointment of Changsheng Xu

After 13 years in the role, Thomas Plagemann of the University of Oslo, Norway, has just stepped down as Editor-in-Chief of the Multimedia Systems Journal (Springer). Thomas has provided clear and strong leadership and guidance for the journal over more than a dozen years and overseen what is now a rapid turnaround between submission and publication, the introduction of best reviewer and associate editor awards and of course a back catalogue of great papers published across the years.

SIGMM thanks Thomas for his service to the community over these many years and welcomes Changsheng Xu to the role as incoming Editor-in-Chief.  Changsheng is a Professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing and is also Executive Director of the China-Singapore Institute of Digital Media.  He has a long and distinguished track record of service to the multimedia community with editorial roles for many multimedia journals and has also served in many roles at SIGMM Conferences and events, so we know the journal is in safe hands.

Thomas also now steps down from his position as a member of the SIGMM Executive Committee and Changsheng takes his position.
