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.

Grid computing started as a generalization of cluster computing, promising to deliver large-scale levels of parallelism to high-performance applications by crossing administrative boundaries. Today, the use of computational and data resources in high-performance applications, undertaken over grid infrastructure, has become a reality.
The IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid provides researchers and practitioners with an opportunity to share their research and experience in cluster and grid technology. Topics to be addressed at the conference include grid architectures and systems, service composition and orchestration, middleware for clusters and grids, scheduling and load balancing, and parallel and wide-area file systems.
CCGrid 2008, which takes place in Lyon, France from 19–22 May, attracts top computer engineers and scientists from around the world.
The four-day program includes contributed papers, tutorials, a poster exhibition, and a doctoral symposium, complemented by workshops held throughout the week.
