Call for Articles for Computer

Computer seeks articles for a special issue on advances in unmanned ground vehicles, to appear in December 2006. Guest editors are Guna Seetharaman from the US Air Force Institute of Technology, Arun Lakhotia from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Erik Blasch of the US Air Force Research Laboratory Sensors Directorate at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

In 2003, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency challenged scientists, technologists, and innovators around the world to build fully autonomous unmanned ground vehicles that can conquer a 130-mile course through the rough on- and off-road terrain of the Mojave Desert. The field is developing so rapidly that although the best effort in 2004 traveled a mere 7.4 miles, five entries completed the entire course in 2005.

Building large, complex systems to stringent specifications under tight deadlines is a serious undertaking. The innovations and advances that followed the DARPA Grand Challenge can be compared to the strides made by extreme programming in software engineering. In both cases, teams with a wide range of academic, technical, and managerial expertise developed outstanding, innovative solutions to long-standing challenges.

Computer's special issue will be devoted to bringing together computer scientists, computer engineers, technology integrators, technology managers, and entrepreneurs to address fundamental issues in designing fully autonomous mobile robots and propose ways to apply them to improve the quality of human life.

Articles on all aspects of mobile robotics will be given due consideration. The issue will feature a historical review of the field as well as speculation on the future of mobile robotics. Computer encourages review articles on state-of-the-art analysis of experience in systems integration, technology development, and futuristic applications pertaining to autonomous mobile robots. Other topics of interest include recent developments in other computing disciplines that will have significant impact on how mobile robots will be deployed in urban settings.

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

2006 Cluster Computing and the Grid Conference

CCGrid 2006 is the sixth in a series of international conferences that are dedicated to addressing the challenges associated with the convergence of Web services and grid technology.

A primary goal of grid technology applications is to offer effective "computing on tap," which depends heavily on collaborative sharing strategies. CCGrid 2006 emphasizes collaboration, providing researchers and practitioners with an excellent opportunity to share cutting-edge research results in grid technology.

A full schedule of events includes workshops and presentations on topics including the Web Services Flow Language, resource exchange architectures, middleware for clusters and grids, and peer-to-peer computing.

Organizers of CCGrid 2006, to be held in Singapore from 16-19 May, have solicited proposals for in-depth tutorials on topics of interest to practitioners, researchers, and students of grid computing.
