Around the World: (The First Time) with Communications' Regional Special Sections


In 2017, we made the strategic decision to launch Communications' Regional Special Sections (RSS) and declared "Here comes Everybody … to Communications." Next month (April 2021), we will publish the special section for Arabia, completing our circumnavigation of the world in three years. We are already hearing clamor for "we want another chance to highlight the best in our region" with a collection of Hot Topics and Big Trends.

It was not easy. The team has navigated complex politics, regional rivalries and tensions, and a wealth of logistics challenges (including COVID-19!) to reveal the remarkable creativity, technology, excellence, and unique computing culture around the globe. And while our reach has been broad and inclusive, we have by no means touched it all. There is much more to be done!
