Call for Articles for Computer
Mobile computing devices are appearing in many forms and with increasingly diverse functions: personal digital assistants such as PalmOS organizers and PocketPCs, handheld games like GameBoys, mobile phones, digital audio players, and smart cameras. These are being augmented with ever-increasing capabilities that cross function boundaries.
The September 2003 issue of Computer will be devoted to handheld computing. We are soliciting papers that provide a perspective on all aspects of the field: infrastructure technologies, devices, middleware, and applications. There are opportunities for short and long papers, providing a forum for reporting on both early and mature research. We also wish to solicit descriptions of the experiences with handheld technology in existing products and services. Topics of interest include new services enabled by mobile technologies, middleware support for mobile devices, novel functions for handheld devices, user interfaces and interaction techniques for small devices, wireless-phone computing, and handheld applications, particularly in nontraditional settings.

Computer seeks articles for a February 2004 special issue on ad hoc networking. The guest editors are Jie Wu from Florida Atlantic University, and Ivan Stojmenovic from the University of Ottawa.
Wireless network and mobile computing research has traditionally concentrated on single-hop networks, such as cellular and satellite systems, wherein network nodes communicate directly to a fixed infrastructure. Ad hoc networking covers multi-hop scenarios—wherein network nodes communicate via other network nodes—such as conference, hospital, battlefield, rescue, and monitoring situations. Ad hoc network systems also include packet radio networks, sensor networks, personal communication systems, rooftop networks, and wireless local area networks. Even multi-hop cellular networks may be viable when many cellular phones are concentrated in a small area such as a sports stadium.
This special issue will cover data-link, network, and transport layers of ad hoc networks, as well as security, simulation, and power management issues in sensor, local area, personal, and mobile ad hoc networks. Topics also include medium-access control based on IEEE 801.11 and Bluetooth; position discovery and management in ad hoc networks; and clustering, routing, broadcasting, multicasting, quality of service, topology construction, and maintenance in ad hoc networks. Send inquiries to and Send pdf files by 31 May to

Calls for IEEE CS Publications
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 Yuan-ting 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
Massive amounts of 3D data are available from multiple sources. However, because of problems related to fusing multisource data, creating real-world models with this data is not straightforward. The November/December 2003 special issue of IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications will feature 3D reconstruction and visualization of large-scale environments. Potential topics for articles include issues of scale, problems of dynamic data, updating models with newly acquired data, and problems of incomplete models.
Submissions are due to by 1 March. Direct prior correspondence to Guest Editors William Ribarsky,, and Holly Rushmeier, See the full call at
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
