IEEE Intelligent Systems seeks articles for a September 2008 special issue on natural-language processing and the web. Articles should focus on innovative uses of the web as a large-scale, distributed, hyperlinked, and multilingual corpus, and on building state-of-the-art natural-language interfaces to search engines.
Submissions are due by 5 March. Visit www.computer.org/intelligent to view the complete call for papers.
IEEE Pervasive Computing seeks articles for a December 2008 issue on environmental sustainability. The creation, use, and disposal of large quantities of pervasive technologies such as sensors and mobile devices have strong implications for resource consumption and waste production. Submissions should address design for technology reuse, repurposing, or lifetime extension; sensor network applications that support the efficient use or protection of natural resources; novel systems, devices, or interfaces that support stewardship of the natural environment; and resource-efficient system design, among other topics.
Articles are due by 23 June. Visit www.computer.org/pervasive to view detailed author instructions and the complete call for papers.

In 2008, the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Parallel Processing is launching a new event, the PhD Forum, as part of its flagship conference, the International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium.
The new forum aims to help students establish contacts for entering the job market while giving representatives from industry and academia a preview of developing technologies in parallel and distributed computing. To participate, students will be asked to submit a two-page extended abstract by 15 January, describing the novelties and advantages of their thesis work. The top submissions will receive travel awards sponsored by the TCPP.
IPDPS 2008, which takes place in Miami from 14–18 April, marks the 22nd year of an event in computer science that attracts top computer engineers and scientists from around the world.
The five-day program includes contributed papers, invited speakers, panels, tutorials, and commercial participation, framed by workshops held on the first and last days.
