    Recently, researchers have focused on data mining of the Web to discover useful, actionable knowledge about the Web and its users. For example, user behavior and usage patterns can be helpful in building and modifying 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.

    As the Web increasingly becomes a source of low-cost knowledge and information, companies and individuals are at risk of encountering and acting upon untrustworthy, or even fraudulent, data. Web users face significant challenges in differentiating high-quality data from that which is of questionable value.

    How to efficiently identify quality knowledge from different data sources presents a significant challenge. To reveal the progress in the theory and principles underlying data and information cleaning and preprocessing, IEEE Intelligent Systems seeks original papers for a special issue on this theme. Relevant topics include data preparation and its theories, data preprocessing, data reduction, group data mining systems, and quality measurements. Submissions are due 1 Dec. The complete call for papers is available at

    Wireless grids are becoming a popular way of connecting users to one another and to other distributed resources. The growth of wireless services has led to new challenges in computing. For a 2004 special issue on wireless grids, IEEE Internet Computing seeks papers that address the technical, economic, and policy issues that arise from their broadening application. Topics may include protocols for resource sharing, mobility management, security mechanisms, and the impact of hot-spot meshes on wireless grids. Papers are due 2 Dec.
