2022 Message from the CASS President

It is an enormous responsibility and at the same time a great privilege to serve the IEEE Circuit and Systems Society (CASS) as President for the next two years. As I write these lines, my first thoughts go to the Presidents who preceded me and with whom I have had the honor to work. Thanks to their strategic guidance and dedication, CASS is a respected and technically vibrant professional society, and I will strive to build upon their drives and enrich the quality of services offered to our members. Profs. Franco Maloberti, Yong Lian and Amara Amara; thank you very much.

I would also like to thank in advance the support and commitment of the volunteers who will serve in the different positions of the CASS organizational chart during my term as President. I aspire to maintain an open, serene, and conversational environment with all of them as this is the only way to move well-coordinated and fruitful initiatives forward. Special mention deserves the members of the CASS Executive Committee (Ex-Com) team who will be my closest collaborators. Prof. Myung Hoon Sunwoo will serve as President-Elect after a successful four-years period as Vice President (VP) of Conferences. Profs. Mohamad Sawan and Guoxing Wang will continue at the day-to-day helm of the Publications and Finance Divisions, respectively, during 2022. This year, three new Vice Presidents will be in charge of the Conference, Regional Activity and Membership, and Technical Activities Divisions. They are Prof. Andrei Vladimirescu (replacing Prof. Myung Hoon Sunwoo), Prof. Kea-Tiong Tang (replacing Prof. Yoshifumi Nishio), and Prof. Xinmiao Zhang (replacing Dr. Yen-Kuang Chen), respectively. The new Ex-Com members have been deeply involved in the Society governance from their roles in the CASS Board of Governors (BoG), and mechanisms have been established to avoid any service gap during the transition. Herein, I would like to express my gratitude and recognition to the outgoing VPs for their outstanding service to the Society, and my complete confidence on the new team with whom and I am fully convinced we will be able to elevate the Society to next level.
