Call for Articles for Computer

Computer magazine seeks articles for a special issue on public computing in city contexts, to appear in August 2006. Guest editors are Michele Chang from Intel and Irina Shklovski from Carnegie Mellon University.

In recent years, forces of technology, culture, and society have converged to reshape urban life. The urban experience has quickly emerged as a major focus for research on issues of mobility, location-based services, and pervasive computing. A city's complexities, embodied in its social, historical, and technological infrastructures, make it a viable alternative to the controlled environment of the lab.

Computer's special issue will be devoted to bringing members of the human-computer interaction (HCI) community together with researchers and practitioners from the fields of urban planning, architecture, and design to examine public interfaces and their effects on the urban environment. Public interfaces are systems that foster public dialog, facilitate the exchange of information and services, or encourage interaction between public entities and city inhabitants. Computer encourages systematic empirical studies or critical analyses of interdisciplinary research as well as descriptions of technology development.

Topics of particular interest include computing as a shared resource, surveillance and personal boundaries in public spaces, access as a means of control and discrimination, and supporting individuals in the production of knowledge.

The deadline for papers is 15 February 2006. Author guidelines and submission instructions are available at

International Conference on Data Engineering

Today's data engineers apply the latest engineering techniques and methodologies to the design, development, and assessment of information systems for different computing platforms and application environments. ICDE 2006, the 22nd International Conference on Data Engineering, features research results on advanced data-intensive applications and addresses late-breaking issues in data and knowledge engineering. Conference participants share solutions to problems facing today's information society and work together to identify new issues and directions for research and development work.

Conference organizers have solicited papers on topics that include data integration, interoperability, and metadata; stream processing and sensor databases; scientific and biological databases for bioinformatics; and Web data management for the Deep Web.

ICDE, set for 3-7 April 2006 in Atlanta, is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Data Engineering. To learn more about ICDE 2006, visit
