CS bugLeadership Computing


Submissions due: 24 January 2014
Estimated Publication date: September/October 2014

Leadership Computing focuses on large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address Grand Challenges in science and engineering. Exploiting the capabilities of the largest and most advance computing systems, these projects aim at accelerating scientific discoveries and technological innovations in a broad range of science and engineering domains.

The goal of this special issue of CiSE is to explore how Leadership Computing is being effectively used to support real-world science and engineering applications. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Algorithmic and application formulations
  • Programming models and systems
  • Runtime systems and middleware
  • End-to-end application workflows
  • Experiences with real applications

We strongly encourage submissions that include multimedia, data, and community content, which will be featured on the IEEE Computer Society website along with the accepted papers.

Copublished by the IEEE Computer Society and the American Institute of Physics, Computing in Science and Engineering magazine features the latest computational science and engineering research in an accessible format, along with departments covering news and analysis, CSE in education, and emerging technologies.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are asked to submit high-quality original work that has neither appeared in nor is under consideration by other journals. All submissions will be peer-reviewed following standard journal practices. Manuscripts based on previously published conference papers must be extended substantially to include at least 50 percent new material. Manuscripts should be written in the active voice, should be no longer than 6,000 words (counting each standard figure and table as 250 words), and should follow the style and presentation guidelines of CiSE (see www.computer.org/cise/author for details).

Please submit your article using the online manuscript submission service at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cs-ieee. When uploading your article, select the appropriate special-issue title under the category "Manuscript Type." Also include complete contact information for all authors. If you have any questions about submitting your article, contact the peer review coordinator at cise@computer.org.
