During the month of October 2006, we had an unusual surge of submissions for consideration as regular papers. In 2006, we have experienced a significant increase in submissions and many of the associate editors have been handling between 30 to 35 manuscripts. The Editor-in-Chief (EiC) commends the associate editors for their outstanding work in terms of processing the manuscripts in a timely and fair manner. The services of the reviewers are acknowledged with gratitude and it is noted that the associate editors and reviewers contribute to the success of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION (VLSI) SYSTEMS and that they are indeed the reason for the surge in the number of submissions to this Transactions. After some serious considerations with the Associate Editor-in-Chief, Dr. S. Chakradhar, and the Steering Committee Chair, Dr. E. Friedman, we decided to add a few new associate editors to the editorial board. The selections were predominantly based on the need in certain areas of the pending manuscripts. THe EiC is extremely happy to announce the induction of three members to the TVLSI editorial board. They are established researchers in their fields within the scope of VLSI systems. They have already been serving TVLSI for the past few months as associate editors and have shown dedication in their work. The normal appointment terms are for two years, beyond which the associate editors continue to serve in the editorial board until they complete the processing of all the pending manuscripts assigned to them. On behalf of TVLSI, the EiC proudly welcomes Dr. Joerg Henkel, Dr. Srinivas Katkoori, and Dr. Lars Liebmann to the TVLSI Editorial Board.
