JUNE 2020

While dealing with the COVID-19
crisis, we still stand ready to serve you.
Our publishing operations continue, our
new IEEE Open Journal of Signal Processing is ready to accept your Plan-Scompliant and other submissions, most
of our smaller conferences and workshops are continuing in virtual mode,
and most of our other membership support functions are still available.
Let me conclude by going back to
the title of this column. Many of you
have undoubtedly recognized this title
as the title of Christopher Koch's 1978
novel The Year of Living Dangerously.
The novel was subsequently made into
a film with the same title. The phrase
comes from "Tahun Vivere Pericoloso," the title of a speech given by Indonesia's first president in 1964, a year
before a coup attempt that threw the
country into a period of intense violence. I understand that the phrase is
used to refer to people living in danger
because of a disaster that could recur,
an apt description of what we are all
experiencing. If anything, this crisis
has demonstrated that we're all in it together, we will succeed together to the
extent that we work together, regardless of nationality, gender, religion,
political inclination, or other characteristics that are often used to separate
us. As we recover from the crisis and
immediate fear, we shouldn't forget the
less fortunate who will still be suffering
from the consequences of this crisis. I
hope that individually, as communities
and as a professional IEEE Society, we
will all dedicate our efforts to assist all
those in need across the globe in the
coming weeks and months.
