    IEEE Internet Computing seeks original articles for a special November/ December 2003 issue on identity management. Topics include, but are not limited to: authentication techniques; federated identity management; access management policies and systems; e-provisioning; integrating identity with Web services; single sign-on; digital certificates; public-key infrastructure; password reset and synchronization; directories and metadirectories; and emerging standards. Submit articles by 1 Apr. Guest editors are Duncan Buell, University of South Carolina, and Ravi Sandhu, George Mason University. For detailed author guidelines, see For more information, contact the magazine assistant,

    IEEE Software seeks original articles for a special November/December 2003 issue on the state of the practice of software engineering. The issue will present an accurate, baseline view of practice on which other practitioners, and software engineering researchers, can build. The issue will describe current practice, not judge it. The issue will not, for example, focus on "best practices." Submissions must present information that accurately characterizes software engineering as currently practiced. Surveys, for example, are appropriate; case studies, unless their findings can be generalized to a broad spectrum of practice, are not. Studies of particular domains of practice are welcome. The issue will consist of contributed papers as well as invited articles from people intimately familiar with software practice. Submission deadline is 15 April. Guest editor: Robert Glass, Submit articles to

    IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine will feature a special issue on mHealth: emerging mobile technologies for health applications. The field of mHealth is concerned with the development, dissemination, and use of mobile information and telecommunication technologies in healthcare.

    Potential topics include Web-based mobile medical systems, 2.5G/3G mobile systems and ad-hoc networks, sensors and signal processing for mHealth applications, space telemedicine and satellite applications, and standardization, regulation, and legal issues. Guest editors are Robert S. H. Istepanian from Brunel University, Emil Jovanov from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and Yuanting Zhang from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The full call for papers, including manuscript guidelines, is available at The submission deadline is 30 August.

    IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, now cosponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, features topics such as biomedical engineering, virtual reality applications for surgery, ethical issues in biomedical applications, and visualization and biomedical imaging.

    The IEEE Computer Society is seeking articles for IEEE Security & Privacy, a new magazine launched in January 2003. IEEE Security & Privacy is envisioned to cover diverse aspects of information assurance including legal and ethical issues, analysis of vulnerabilities and attacks, trends and new developments, and cryptology. For more information, see

    IEEE Pervasive Computing seeks papers focusing on hardware technology, software infrastructure, real- world sensing and interaction, human- computer interaction, or systems considerations. Papers should range from 4,000 to 6,000 words (tables and figures count as 250 words each). For more information, see or send e-mail to

    IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing seeks original manuscripts. This journal publishes research related to mobility of users, systems, data, and computing as well as issues in information organization and access, services, management, and applications.

    Topics of interest include architectures, support services, algorithm/protocol design and analysis, mobile environments, mobile communication systems, applications, and emerging technologies. More information can be found at
