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 Intelligent Systems seeks articles for a March 2009 special issue on artificial intelligence and cultural heritage. While people have long collected objects such as books, sculptures, statues, and paintings, they now also face the preservation and archival of digital artifacts. This special issue seeks to explore problems and solutions to cultural heritage challenges in the digital age.
Suitable topics for papers include knowledge representations and reasoning, feature-detection techniques for analyzing digital artifacts, and intelligent interface support for professional and lay users.
Submissions are due by 15 August. Visit www.computer.org/portal/pages/intelligent/content/CulHerCFP.html to view the complete call for papers.
IEEE Software seeks articles for a May/June 2009 issue on software development for embedded systems. Guest editors invite papers that address concept and development activities, as well as the evolution and maintenance of systems from such different industry domains as medicine, transportation, or automation.
Suitable paper topics include communication protocols and middleware for embedded systems, modeling of quality attributes, and concepts for maintenance, robustness, and remotely diagnosable embedded system architecture.
Articles are due by 1 November. Visit www.computer.org/software to view detailed author instructions and the complete call for papers.

Computer seeks articles for an April 2009 theme issue on interoperable identity-management systems.
Today, broadband access contributes to the sustained development of service-oriented economies. Opportunistic, automated transactions require accurate and trustworthy exchange of information about the parties, while personal information is used to commit to legally binding transactions and to permit customized service offerings. The use of personally identifiable attributes constituting digital identity is becoming an integral part of B2B and B2C processes and of many online social activities.
The guest editors solicit papers that address practical concerns, explore leading-edge engineering advances, envision shifts in computing paradigms in the area of interoperable IdM systems, and investigate expected social impacts.
Direct inquiries to guest editors Piotr Pacyna, firstname.lastname@example.org; Anthony Rutkowski, email@example.com; Amardeo Sarma, firstname.lastname@example.org; or Kenji Takahashi, email@example.com. Paper submissions are due by 15 September. Complete submission instructions are available at www.computer.org/portal/pages/computer/content/author.html.
E-business technologies, processes, applications and services provide the foundations for both the physical and digital economies. Examples of current and emerging challenges range from the reliable integration of e-service platforms and applications, to secure and trustworthy interactions, to new paradigms for user experience and interaction.
The 2008 IEEE International Conference on e-Business Engineering, which takes place 22–24 October in Xi'an, China, brings together researchers, academics, and practitioners to discuss the state of the science of e-business.
Organizers have solicited papers on topics that include data and knowledge engineering for e-business, open source version management, software engineering for e-business, and sensor systems and RFID applications. Hosted workshops at ICEBE include the Workshop on Advances in RFID, the Workshop on Service-Oriented Applications, Integration and Collaboration, and the Workshop on Data and Knowledge Engineering for e-Service and e-Business.
