## Calls for IEEE CS Publications

IEEE Internet Computing magazine is seeking articles for a special issue on creating and managing virtual organizations. The March/April 2008 issue will address flexible networks of independent, globally distributed entities (individuals or institutions) that share knowledge and resources and work toward a common goal.

Possible topics include the management of trust relationships in dynamic virtual organizations, quality-of-service issues, and resource allocation and provisioning.

Submissions are due by 15 July 2007. To view the complete call for papers, visit www.computer.org/portal/pages/internet/content/cfp.html.

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications magazine is seeking articles for a special issue on computational aesthetics. The March/April 2008 issue will address the study of computational methods for eliciting a specified emotional response from a human.

Possible topics include image analogies, style transfer methods, sketching, visual balance, and nonphotorealistic rendering. Also welcome are papers that describe empirically based metrics of aesthetic attributes.

Submissions are due by 20 August 2007. To view the complete call for papers, visit www.computer.org/portal/site/cga/index.jsp.

## COMPSAC 2007

Since 1977, the IEEE Computer Society Conference on Software Technology and Applications has offered a major international forum for researchers, practitioners, managers, and policy makers interested in computer software and applications. The technical program includes keynote addresses, research papers, industrial case studies, panel discussions, and several workshops on emerging topics.

Organizers have solicited papers on a variety of topics that include development; testing; measurement; requirements analysis; coanalysis and codesign; verification and validation for performance; and safety, security, and dependability constraints.

COMPSAC 2007 will take place in Beijing from 23–27 July.
