Recent Special Issues and Sections
From the February 2014 issue of the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems
"In modern computing paradigms, most computing systems, e.g., cluster computing, grid computing, cloud computing, the Internet, telecommunication networks, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and Machine-to-Machine communication networks (M2M), are parallel and distributed systems. While providing improved expandability, manageability, efficiency, and reliability, parallel and distributed systems increase their security weaknesses to an unprecedented scale."
From the November/December 2013 issue of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
"The selected papers cover a broad range of bioinformatics topics, including biological networks, computational complexity of problems in structural biology and geomics, and phylogenetic inference and analysis."
From the September/October 2013 issue of the IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing
Special Section on Cloud Computing Assessment: Metrics, Algorithms, Policies, Models, and Evaluation Techniques
"Dependability and performance issues are strategic in Cloud computing, especially in business context where they often become mandatory. To investigate such issues and present the most recent findings to the scientific community we arranged this special issue on Cloud computing assessment: metrics, algorithms, policies, models, and evaluation techniques."
