Call for IEEE CS Publications
IEEE Software seeks original articles for a special issue highlighting return on investment in the software industry. Papers should address the three main ROI components—cost, benefit, and risk. Subjects might include ROI analyses of acquisition versus in-house development of software, software infrastructure and investments, or improvement of existing software development processes.
In addition to traditional articles, the guest editors seek state-of-practice articles and case studies. Papers are due 10 Oct. Submission guidelines and a complete list of topics are available at For more information, contact the guest editors: Hakan Erdogmus,; John Favaro,; and Wolfgang Strigel,
Increases in the polygonal complexity of computer graphics models, combined with advances in 3D digital photography and scanning technology, have lead to a renewed interest in point primitives. In recent years, research has focused on the efficient representation, modeling, processing, and rendering of point-sampled geometry.
To advance research in this area, IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications seeks articles for a special issue on point-based computer graphics. Topics could include data acquisition, representation of point-sampled geometry, sampling and interpolation, and geometric modeling using point primitives. Sought especially are papers that present results based on acquired (rather than simulated) data. Submissions are due 31 Oct. For more information, visit or contact guest editors Markus Gross,, and Hanspeter Pfister,
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.
