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 dialogue, 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
