The Data Science and Engineering Journal (DSE) been
created about two years ago as a forum for original results
in research, design, development, and assessment of
technologies that timely address relevant challenges in data and
data-intensive applications. The journal has had an
impressive start with several invited papers addressing
fundamental challenges in data technologies and covering
novel data-intensive applications. The journal has also
hosted issues with best papers selected from renowned
international conferences. During its first years, the journal
has also received a large number of regularly submitted
papers that were carefully reviewed by the editorial board
in order to assess their suitability for publication in DSE.
DSE has been very selective, and only the best papers
among the submitted ones have been accepted for
publication. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all
volunteers that have been involved in various aspects of the
development of DSE contents: the authors, the editors, and
the DSE staff.
I am also very happy to announce some important
changes in the DSE leadership. Professor X. Sean Wang
has joined DSE as Editor-in-Chief. His strong research
track and leadership experience will be instrumental in
taking DSE forward. Professor Bin Cui, who was already
serving as associated managing editor, has stepped up to
take the role of managing editor. His managerial skills and
research experience will ensure that all processes involved
in the selection of papers for DSE be efficiently managed.
Their bios are enclosed below. I would like also to extend
special thanks to two key colleagues who have been
involved in the creation of DSE and who have now stepped
down from their roles in DSE: Professor Jianzhon Li, one
of the two founding DSE Editors-in-Chief, and Professor
Lizhu Zhou, the founding managing editor of DSE.
Without their constant work, DSE would not have been
possible. We hope that they will continue to be involved in DSE.
We are currently working on identifying novel exciting
research topics for thematic special issues. We hope that
you will consider submitting your research papers to DSE.
Enjoy this issue and the forthcoming ones.
