Dear APSCE members,
It is a great honour for me to take on the role of the APSCE president – I will do my best to make sure APSCE continues to grow!
My sincere thanks to the immediate Past President, Lung-Hsiang Wong, for all the time and effort he put over the previous two years into steering APSCE so successfully. He did a great job, and I hope I will be able to continue his good work. I would also like to thank all the Past Presidents, and the Executive committee. Thanks to each of you for all your efforts, and welcome to the new members of EC! And congratulations to Weiqin Chen, our President-Elect; I look forward to working with you all.
APSCE is already in an excellent shape, but we need to continue working on several important fronts. As is the case with all communities, we need to encourage young researchers and grow future leaders. Some of the SIGs need to be more active. Weiqin, as the new Chair of the SIG subcommittee, will need our support to make sure that all SIGs are strong. RPTEL has been expertly led by Siu-Cheung Kong, who is now also supported by three additional editors-in-chief, Fu-Yun Yu, Hyo-Jeong So and Chen-Chung Liu. But, of course, the success of the journal depends on all of us. I do hope you are all busy writing papers for ICCE 2020 and our journal!
