Computer seeks submissions for a May 2011 special issue on mobile and embedded computing.

It has been almost 20 years since technology visionary Mark Weiser predicted the proliferation of inch-, foot-, and yard-sized computers ("The Computer for the 21st Century," Scientific American, Sept. 1991). Today, the widespread adoption of smartphones (inch); tablets, e-books, net books (foot); and Internet-enabled televisions and smart signs (yard) is dramatically changing the Internet landscape.

The mobile Internet is growing much faster than the desktop Internet, and many people are predicting that more users will connect to the Internet from their mobile devices than desktop PCs within the next few years.

This special issue of Computer will focus on mobile and embedded applications, services, devices, HCI, programming environments, and other emerging research areas. Appropriate topics of interest include applications and computing services for mobile users; next-generation Internet television; user interface and systems design; security, scalability, and reliability issues; and HTML 5 for mobile or embedded applications development.

Accepted papers will be professionally edited for content and style. All manuscripts are subject to peer-review on both technical merit and relevance to Computer's readership.

Paper submissions are due by 31 December. For author guidelines and information on how to submit a manuscript, please visit

Calls for Articles for IEEE CS Publications

IEEE Software seeks papers for a May/June 2011 issue tentatively titled "Software Components beyond Programming—from Routines to Services."

Components have been known in software engineering since 1968 when Doug McIlroy introduced them in his seminal paper "Mass-Produced Software Components" (NATO Science Committee). Since then, software components have had several revivals.

The guest editors welcome case studies, lessons learned, and success and failure stories in component software.

Articles are due by 1 November. Visit to view the complete call for papers.

IT Professional seeks submissions for a July/August 2011 issue on social networking and collaboration.

Information technology has transformed social networking and collaboration. As individuals and businesses discover the potential and value of IT-enabled social networks, there is a need to articulate and quantify the antecedents of adoption, diffusion, business value, and societal impacts of social networks.

The guest editors welcome papers on topics that include emerging applications of social networking and collaboration, best practices, nonprofit and government applications, applications in emerging economies, and the potential pitfalls and challenges of social networking and collaboration.

Articles are due by 1 December. Visit to view the complete call for papers.

The 10th IEEE International Symposium on Signal Processing and Information Technology is a premiere technical forum for researchers in the fields of signal processing and information technology. ISSPIT 2010 will include state-of-the-art oral presentations, poster sessions, and tutorials.

Papers will address recent results in fields that include integer linear programming formulations for the deployment of heterogeneous sensors, approximation algorithms for minimum cost deployment, and a computational geometry method for event localization using the time difference of arrival (TDOA) method.

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE Signal Processing Society, ISSPIT 2010 takes place 15-18 December in Luxor, Egypt. Visit complete conference details.
