2024 Call For Nominations

IEEE Computer Society

Chair of Technical Community on Software Engineering (IEEE CS TCSE)

TCSE seeks nominations by August 15, 2024 for the position of Chair. The Chair is the Chief Executive of TCSE, and is responsible for all TCSE activities, and for relationships with IEEE-CS and other societies. The term will run from January 1, 2025 through December 31, 2026. From November  1, 2024 through December 31, 2024, the person will be Chair-elect and will have no official duties but will serve a two month “apprenticeship” period, to learn the policies and procedures associated with being a TC chair and collaborate on the TC budget development.

The IEEE Computer Society’s Technical Community on Software Engineering (TCSE) serves a valuable role in the international software engineering community for researchers and professionals. Key priorities of TCSE include strong support for its publications, conferences, and workshops; leadership in software engineering education and international outreach; an active role in public policy issues; and good relations with other software engineering societies and regional associations.

It is critical for TCSE’s long-term growth of audience, scope and outreach to embrace the true interdisciplinary nature of software-intensive, socio-technical ecosystems and to be committed to greater participation by industrial organizations. TCSE Chair nominees must be ready to work with, actively engage and support TCSE membership, volunteers, conferences and workshops to address the challenges, opportunities and risks of this interdisciplinary world software engineering.

After nominations are received and reviewed, the final ballot will be sent to all TCSE members by IEEE-CS to vote for the next TC Chair. Candidates will be asked to submit a brief biography and a position statement (up to one page in length) for inclusion in the election ballot.

Please nominate those colleagues whom you wish to run for the position of the IEEE CS TCSE Chair. Those running for the Chair position  must be members of IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Computer Society Technical Community on Software Engineering at the time of nomination. Please provide us with Name, Affiliation and Email of your nominee. You may also nominate yourself.

Please email your nominations no later than August 15, 2024 to: dbs754smith@gmail.com
