## Calls for Articles for IEEE CS Publications

IEEE Transactions on Haptics seeks articles for a July–September 2009 special issue on ambient haptic systems. Ambient systems are seamlessly integrated into a user environment, providing unobtrusive yet interactive access to digital media. They can be found increasingly in settings that range from vehicle cockpits to portable devices to homes, offices, and hospitals. Haptics as a modality has an important role to play in the evolution of ambient interfaces. The haptic modality is largely untapped, while the vision and auditory modalities are often saturated.

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, and 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.

## Call for Articles for Computer

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, pacyna@kt.agh.edu.pl; Anthony Rutkowski, trutkowski@verisign.com; Amardeo Sarma, sarma@netlab.nec.de; or Kenji Takahashi, takahashi.kenji@lab.ntt.co.jp. Paper submissions are due by 15 September. Complete submission instructions are available at www.computer.org/portal/pages/computer/content/author.html.

## Submission Instructions

The Call and Calendar section lists conferences, symposia, and workshops that the IEEE Computer Society sponsors or cooperates in presenting.

## Tapia 2009

The 2009 Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing Conference aims to provide a supportive networking environment for underrepresented groups across a broad range of computing and information technology disciplines.

Organizers have solicited papers on topics that include all areas of computing, computational math and science, and diversity issues in these disciplines. Acceptable submissions include papers coauthored by students, and papers by new investigators on original research, as well as thesis summaries, projects, and descriptions of goals and interim results of continuing research. A robotics competition at Tapia 2009 welcomes students interested in building and programming robots to operate in virtual and realworld environments.

Among other events at Tapia 2009 is a student-focused poster session that provides a place to present new research results in an informal, supportive setting. The top three posters in the graduate and undergraduate student categories will advance to the ACM Student Research Competition Grand Finals.

Sponsored by the ACM in cooperation with the Computing Research Association, Tapia 2009 takes place 1–4 April 2009, in Portland, Oregon.
