## Calls for Articles for IEEE CS Publications

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.

## Call for Articles for Computer

Computer seeks articles for a December 2008 special issue on trust management in Web service environments.

A key challenge for the envisioned service Web, where services are considered as first-class objects, is to provide a trusted framework for enabling composition and selection of Web services in a large, highly volatile, and dynamic environment. The intentional lack of any global monitoring system, while undeniably desirable, has also exacerbated the problem of trust management in Web service environments. The inherently open and unpredictable nature of Web service environments means that traditional approaches are of little help in providing a framework for interactions. This special issue of Computer will cover the core challenges and solutions to enabling trust in Web service environments.

Topics of interest include trust models and metrics, bootstrapping trust among Web services, trust tampering detection and prevention, trust in Web service standards, agent- and reputation-based trust management, and case studies for trust management among Web services.

Authors should present a proof of concept for any novel technique and discuss the significance and applicability of their proposed architecture or system. All papers are subject to expert peer review.

Direct inquiries to the guest editors, Elisa Bertino, Purdue University, bertino@cs.purdue.edu, or Athman Bouguettaya, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, athman. bouguettaya@csiro.au. Paper submissions are due by 1 June. Complete submission instructions are available at www.computer.org/portal/pages/computer/content/author.html.

## IEEE LCN 2008

The IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, is one of the networking industry's longest-running conferences.

LCN 2008 focuses on practical, leading-edge applications and research in the area of computer networks. An informal, workshop-style atmosphere offers opportunities for speakers, panelists, and attendees to spend unstructured time together. Attendees come from around the world, including North America, Europe, and the Pacific Rim.

Topics of paper sessions include high-speed networking; high-performance protocols; local, metropolitan, and wide area networks; internet-working; network and protocol design; wireless networks; routing and switching; multimedia networks; distributed systems; and real-time networks.

IEEE LCN 2008 takes place 20–23 October in Montreal. For further details, visit the IEEE LCN website at www.ieeelcn.org.
