Candidate Statement

SIGMOBILE has successfully established its position in the professional community through its well organized activities such as conferences and publications in the last few years. The degree of its continuing success depends on the dedication of individuals who care about the organization, the active involvements of its members and active interactions with other professional organizations. It is such a special organization where engineers and computer scientists can really collaborate and we should take active role to bridge the gap between two camps, which I can help do due to my dual experiences in both fields. If I am elected as your secretary, I will try my best to help carry on the tradition of excellence of SIGMOBILE, promote its activities by getting involved with conference organizations and by reaching out to other professional organizations. I will also make my best effort to facilitate communications among our members and to keep our members informed about our professional activities. As a member of the executive team of SIGMOBILE, I will work closely with the Chair to make SIGMOBILE more successful.
