IET Journals welcomes two new Editors-in-Chief

8 March 2012

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Professor James Lam of Hong Kong University as the Editor-in-Chief of the IET Control Theory & Applications and Professor Majid Mirmehdi, University of Bristol, as the Editor-in-Chief of the IET Computer Vision.

Prior to joining the University of Hong Kong in 1993, Professor Lam was lecturer at the City University of Hong Kong and the University of Melbourne. His research interests include model reduction, robust control and filtering of dynamic systems, networked control systems, vibration control, and biological networks.

A key objective for Professor Lam will be to continue development of the IET Control Theory & Applications as a key international journal, and a platform for promotion and dissemination of forefront knowledge and high-quality scholarly research pertinent to control systems, especially in the new and emerging research areas.

Professor Mirmehdi is currently a Professor of Computer Vision at the University of Bristol, and his areas of interest include natural scene analysis and medical imaging.

Professor Mirmehdi’s principle aim is to increase the standing and visibility of the IET Computer Vision journal in the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition community. He will work closely with the Editorial Board and publishing team to further develop the journal.

Kruna Vukmirovic, Journal Development Editor at the IET, said: “We are excited to have Professor Lam and Professor Mirmehdi at the helm of the IET Control Theory & Applications and the IET Computer Vision, respectively. I look forward to working with them as we develop these journals and strengthen our commitment to publication and dissemination of high-quality research.”
