B. Revised Reviewer Policy: The current time allotted to reviewers to submit their evaluation of paper submissions to CSVT is one month. This time allotment will remain unchanged for the review of original paper submissions. However, in order to expedite the review process, the time allotted for evaluation of revised paper submissions will be reduced to two weeks. We hope that the revised policy will further reduce the time required for the evaluation of papers prior to their publication, and thus increase the timeliness and impact of papers published in CSVT.

C. Best Associate Editor Awards: Congratulations to the following associate editors for receiving the annual "CSVT Best Associate Editor Award" for 2014:

1. Raouf Hamzaoui
2. Jie Liang
3. Enrico Magli

5. Yao Wang

D. Call for Best Paper Nominations: We would like to solicit nominations for the annual "CSVT Best Paper Award". The deadline for submission of nominations is February 15, 2015. The Circuits and Systems for Video Technology Best Paper Award recognizes the best paper published in the "Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology" publication. The award is based on general quality, originality, contributions, subject matter and timeliness. Anyone who is an author of a paper published in the "Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology" during the three calendar years preceding the award is eligible for nomination. Nominations should be submitted online at http://ieee-cas.org/2015-ieee-circuits-and-systems-society-best-paper-award-nominations-form.

E. Call for Special Issue Proposals: We would like to solicit special issue proposals on new and emerging topics of great interest to the CSVT community. Special issue proposals should be within the scope of CSVT, which covers all aspects of visual information relating to video or that have the potential to impact future developments in the field of video technology and video systems. Special issue proposals should include (a) a cover letter outlining the topic of the proposed special issue, timeliness of the topic, related special issues, and interest to the CSVT community; (b) a draft call for papers summarizing the scope of the proposed special issue, list of topics, suggested timeline, and list of guest editors; and (c) a short biography for each of the guest editors. The proposal should include 3-5 guest editors who are senior-level researchers on the topic of the proposed special issue (e.g., full professor or equivalent research positions) and have a diverse background (i.e., geographically, ethnically, gender, expertise, industry/academia, etc.). Special issue proposals should be sent to the editor-in-chief, Dan Schonfeld tcsvt-eic@tcad.polito.it, and the deputy editor-in-chief, Shipeng Li shipeng.li@microsoft.com. Examples of approved special issues including a list of the guest editors and sample call for papers can be found on the CSVT webpage. See http://tcsvt.polito.it/special_issue.html.
