Nominations are sought for the next Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions on the Web (ACM TWEB; http://tweb.acm.org/). TWEB is a journal publishing refereed articles reporting the results of research on Web content, applications, use, and related enabling technologies. Additional information about the TWEB and its charter is available at http://tweb.acm.org/charter.html.
The term of appointment is three years, to begin in January 2021, with the possibility of renewal for a second term. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for following and executing the editorial charter of the journal, as well as for proactively adapting the journal’s mechanisms and charter to the evolving nature of the field. The EiC will also closely work with relevant ACM interest groups such as SIGWeb and relevant conferences such as the Web Conference series (formerly known as WWW). A description of the duties of the EiC and evaluation criteria can be found at http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/evaluation. TWEB is receiving about 120 submissions a year, and the Editor-in-Chief should be comfortable with that workload.
Candidates for the position should be well-established researchers in areas related to the core mission of the journal, and they should have significant prior experience serving in senior roles on conference program committees and journal editorial boards.
The deadline for nominations is December 1, 2020.

The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the ACM Transactions on Information Systems (TOIS) is coming to an end, and the ACM Publications Board has set up a nominating committee to assist the Board in selecting the next EiC. TOIS was established in 2000 and has been experiencing steady growth, with around 150 submissions received annually over the last six years. The acceptance rate has stayed in the 20-25% rate.
Nominations are invited for a three-year term as TOIS EiC, beginning on August 1, 2020. The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM will provide appropriate administrative support. Self-nominations are encouraged, and should include a statement of the candidate's vision for the future development of TOIS. Other nominations should include a vita along with a brief statement of why the nominee should be considered; the committee will reach out to the nominated candidate to seek permission to proceed and to request a vision for the future development of TOIS. The deadline for submitting nominations is June 1, 2020, although nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
