After serving as the Editor-in-Chief for the past three years, I am very pleased to turn over the editorial torch to Dr. Yi Qian who served as the Associate Editor-in Chief during this time. Dr. Qian has been a long-time IEEE volunteer and has all the experience needed to bring this magazine to a new level. To accommodate high quality Special Issue papers, as well as reduce the backlog of open call papers, we increased our page budget from 600 to 800 and this year I have requested an increase to 1000. However, reducing our backlog is not the only measure of the importance of a journal/magazine. I am very pleased that the publication impact factor of this magazine has been stealthily rising from 4.148 in 2015 to 9.202 in 2017 and I am confident this trend will continue for years to come.
