IEEE Intelligent Systems magazine is soliciting previously unpublished research papers for a February 2007 special issue on interacting with autonomy. Of particular interest are papers that address human interaction with autonomous or semiautonomous physical systems such as robots, smart houses, assistive technologies or companion robots, and entertainment-based systems, including immersive environments.
IEEE Intelligent Systems provides peer-reviewed, cutting-edge articles on the theory and applications of systems that perceive, reason, learn, and act intelligently.

Computer seeks articles for a February 2007 special issue on high-performance reconfigurable computing systems and applications. Guest editors are Duncan Buell from the University of South Carolina, Tarek El-Ghazawi from George Washington University, Kris Gaj from George Mason University, and Volodymyr Kindratenko from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Reconfigurable computing systems based on combinations of conventional processors and field-programmable gate arrays have been gaining attention in recent years. These synergistic designs have the potential to exploit coarse-grained functional parallelism through conventional parallel processing, as well as fine-grained parallelism through direct hardware execution on FPGAs. A number of these systems have recently been developed by several major high-performance computer vendors such as Cray and Silicon Graphics and by emerging companies such as SRC and Starbridge. As high-performance reconfigurable computing systems come into wider deployment, developers must address issues regarding their programmability and their usefulness to the high-performance computing community.
Computer invites papers that provide a perspective on all aspects of high-performance reconfigurable computing. Examples of suitable topics include hardware platforms, applications, programming paradigms, compilers, programming languages, standards, and performance prediction and measurement.
Computer also encourages submissions that provide a comprehensive review of the state of the art and future trends in FPGA technologies; modern high-performance production and experimental reconfigurable platforms; high-level programming languages; and experiences in developing and running engineering and scientific applications on reconfigurable platforms.
The deadline for papers is 1 August 2006. Detailed author guidelines and submission instructions are available at www.computer.org/portal/pages/computer/mc/author.html. Send inquiries to the guest editors at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com.
The Call and Calendar section lists conferences, symposia, and workshops that the IEEE Computer Society sponsors or cooperates in presenting.

Computer seeks articles for an April 2007 special issue on human-centered computing (HCC). Guest editors are Daniel Gatica-Perez of the IDIAP Research Institute, Switzerland; Thomas Huang of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, US; Alejandro Jaimes of Fuji Xerox, Japan; and Nicu Sebe of the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Computing is at one of its most exciting moments in history, playing an essential role in supporting many important human activities. The explosion in the availability of information in various media forms and through multiple sensors and devices means, on one hand, that the amount of data we can collect will continue to increase dramatically, and on the other hand that we need to develop new paradigms to search, organize, and integrate such information to support human endeavors: learning, working, communicating, caretaking, and playing, among others.
HCC is an emerging field that aims at bridging the existing gaps between the various disciplines involved with the design and implementation of computing systems that support people's activities. HCC aims at tightly integrating human sciences—social and cognitive—and computer science—HCI, signal processing, machine learning—for the design of computing systems with a human focus from beginning to end, a focus that considers the personal, social, and cultural contexts in which such systems are deployed.
Beyond being a meeting place for existing disciplines, HCC also aims at radically changing computing with new methodologies to design and build systems that support and enrich people's lifes. Computer solicits submissions that introduce key concepts, discuss theoretical frameworks and technical approaches, challenges, research opportunities, and open issues in areas of interest in human-centered computing, including the following areas:
Submissions should be limited to 6,000 words (eight pages in print) with each graphic element (figures, graphs, tables) counting as 300 words. The deadline for submitting papers is 1 October 2006. Detailed author guidelines and submission instructions are available at www.computer.org/portal/pages/computer/mc/author.html. Send inquiries to the guest editors at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com.
