    The Internet and World Wide Web have opened new horizons in the process of sharing information around the world. To expand research in this area, IEEE Internet Computing seeks papers for a special issue covering information dissemination on the Web. Sought especially are papers that deal with the implications of push-based dissemination systems, particularly, the security and privacy issues that are inherent in such systems. Relevant topics include user profiling, publish-subscribe systems, notification services, and proxy-based system architectures. Submission guidelines and a complete list of topics are available at Papers are due 3 Oct.

    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, Hakan.; 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 led 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,

    Recently, researchers have focused on data mining of the Web in order to discover useful, actionable knowledge about the Web and its users. For example, user behavior and usage patterns can be used to build and modify adaptive interfaces and high-performance networks. IEEE Intelligent Systems is soliciting papers for a 2004 special issue on mining the Web for actionable knowledge. Suitable topics include Web information extraction and wrapping, adaptive Web sites, content personalization, and Web mining for searching, querying, and crawling. Papers are due 1 Dec.
