Director’s Message

It is my great honor to serve as the new director of IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) Asia Pacific Board (APB) for the term of 2020-2021. I would like to first take this opportunity to thank all the past APB directors, especially Professor Saewoong Bahk, and the many APB officers and volunteers. With their outstanding services and contributions, the Asia Pacific region, known as Region 10 in IEEE, has grown to the largest region in number of members and geographical area. More than a quarter of all IEEE members and more than 13,000 ComSoc members are from our region. APB provides a great platform for all AP members to share information, promote cooperation between academia and industry, and encourage professional activities in our region.
To continue this good tradition, and serve the needs of AP regional members and communications industries, we plan to further expand our activities to everyone, which include technical work, membership development, information services, meetings and conferences, and chapter coordination. We have set up a new team who are full of enthusiasm and energy to serve for the next two years.
