Call for Articles for Computer

Computer seeks articles for a special issue on high-speed Internet security, to appear in June 2004. Guest editors are Simon Shim from San Jose State University, Li Gong from Sun Microsystems, Avi Rubin from the Johns Hopkins University, and Linley Gwennap from the Linley Group.

The growth of high-speed Internet service has strained the limits of existing network security measures. The CERT Coordination Center of the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University indicates that the number of reported security-breach incidents in the first half of 2003 climbed to 76,404—just under the 82,094 reported for the entire year of 2002.

Computer's special issue will focus on strategies for maintaining robust security standards in ever-faster network environments. Proposed topics include Internet security architecture, security servers, virtual private networks, grid computing security, and XML security. In addition to papers on original topics.

The deadline for papers is 5 January 2004. Send inquiries to the guest editors at,,, and Submission guidelines are available at Submit manuscripts to

MICRO-36: International Symposium on Microarchitecture

Since the 1960s, the International Symposium on Microarchitecture conference series has provided a leading forum on research results in computer microarchitecture. Now in its 36th year, MICRO-36 features contributions that benefit research on both microarchitectures and embedded architectures. Researchers in processor architectures, compilers, and systems for technical interaction will come together in San Diego, California, from 3-5 December to discuss new microarchitecture and software techniques. For 2003, special emphasis is being placed on application-specific optimization schemes. Workshops and tutorials at MICRO-36 will take place from 1-2 December, before the main conference.

MICRO-36 is sponsored in conjunction with the ACM Special Interest Group on Microarchitecture. For more information on MICRO-36, visit

RTSS 2003 Expands its Scope

Organizers are expanding the scope of the 24th IEEE International Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS 2003), which will take place in Cancun, Mexico, from 3-5 December. Two new tracks have been added to the traditional conference program, addressing issues both in hardware-software co-design and in sensor networks. Before the main conference convenes, organizers will present several workshops of interest to both the real-time and embedded systems research communities.

RTSS is the flagship conference of the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems. Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards will be presented at the symposium. The best papers will be submitted to the Real-Time Systems Journal to be considered for publication.
