In order to better serve scientists in the field of computer science, the editorial board concluded the work by the Young AEs and gave awards to those outstanding, and recruited 28 new Young AEs. There are two new members joining the Editorial Board, Min-Ling Zhang and Shiguang Shan. Weigang Wu together with 3 others won the " Outstanding Contributions Award" and Yu Huang together with 5 others won the "Excellent YoungAE Award".

FCS, an international academic journal in English, was launched in February, 2007. FCS publishes latest research findings of computer science. Co-administrated by Higher Education Press and Beihang University, this journal has been indexed by SCI(E) and Ei. To better serve scientists in China and abroad, and build a platform for academic young scholars, the call of “FCS Young AE Project” was started in 2013. The project has attracted many renowned young scholars. As a result of their efforts, during the past years the journal has seen significant progress. Their active participation is the source of the energy that unceasingly moves forward the journal. To keep up with the latest international trends in computer science, FCS constantly recruits new AEs and invites scholars, both at home and abroad, to contribute to the journal. So all young scholars who are dedicated to computer science are more than welcome to join us and build an internationally well-known academic journal of computer science!
