He expanded his role in 2021 and is currently leading professional and educational activities, including the evolution of the SWEBOK and organizing educational courses and certifications. He is awarded Golden Core Member and Distinguished Contributor from IEEE CS.

In 2019, Hironori became an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC). In this role, he strives to promote scholarship in the specialized field associated with the journal while also promoting the journal itself. The journal publishes papers on emerging aspects of computer science, technology, and applications. The journal received an Impact Factor of 7.691 in 2020, indicating its high reputation.

Hironori actively supports to IEEE International Conference on Computers, Software & Applications (COMPSAC). He served as the Local Chair (2018), PC Co-Chair of Symposium on Smart IoT Systems & Applications (2019), and PC Co-Chair of Symposium on Smart IoT Systems & Applications (2020). Since 2019, he has been an Advisory Committee Member of COMPSAC.

Hironori believes it is critical to enrich and expand research and practices in software engineering education and training. He has served in various roles in the IEEE Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T). He served as Publicity Chair in 2015 and PC Co-Chair in 2017. Currently, He is on the Steering Committee and plannings its 2023 edition as its General Chair.

Over the past decade, Hironori has contributed to software engineering and the general computing professional community in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region. He has served as Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer of the IEEE CS Japan Chapter. He has served as Publicity Chair (2007), PC Co-Chair (2018), and is currently General Chair (2022) and Steering Committee Member for the Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC), which publishes their proceedings by IEEE CPS. He is also active with the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ), a sister society of IEEE, where he has served as the Editor of its journal and Chair of Special Interest Group of Software Engineering.

Other Professional Organizational Roles: 

Since 2015, Hironori has been the Convener of ISO/IEC/JTC1 SC7/WG20 to standardize bodies of knowledge and professional certifications, including the development of the ISO/IEC 24773 series. By making them aligned with IEEE CS products SWEBOK and SWECOM, he is contributing to accomplishment of goals of IEEE CS in terms of advanced and disciplined professionalization in software engineering and related areas.

Furthermore, Hironori has contributed to software engineering and the general computing professional community in Japan, Asia, and globally. He has served as a Steering Committee Member for the Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC). He is also active with the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ), where he has served as the Editor of its journal and Chair of Special Interest Group of Software Engineering (SIGSE). Furthermore, he is serving as a Fellow of the International Academy, Research, and Industry Association (IARIA). By having these non-IEEE professional roles, he supports IEEE CS’s international and supportive role in promoting scientific and industrial interchanges together. There is no conflict of interests about these roles.
