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.
IEEE Software seeks articles for a May/June 2009 issue on software development for embedded systems.

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, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Athman Bouguettaya, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, email@example.com. Paper submissions are due by 1 June. Complete submission instructions are available at www.computer.org/portal/pages/computer/content/author.html.
Organized under the auspices of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), the 20th World Computer Congress takes place from 7 to 10 September in Milan, Italy. The cross-disciplinary biannual event addresses the research, academic, and commercial facets of information and computer technology. WCC 2008 highlights basic themes in informatics research and development and integrates dialog on technology issues with business cross-themes.
IFIP presents the conference in cooperation with the Italian Association for Informatics and Automatic Calculus (AICA.)
Hosted conferences at WCC include Globalization in the Digital Scenario, E-Inclusion, Women and Technologies, and the AICA 46th National Congress. Technical conferences titles at WCC include Biologically Inspired Cooperative Computing, History of Computing and Education, IFIP Artificial Intelligence, and Knowledge Management in Action. A topical session on computer-aided innovation rounds out the program.
Conference fees total $870 for IEEE and Computer Society members, based on early registration before 30 June. To learn more, visit www.wcc2008.org.
