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-size 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.

The 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 HTML5 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


IEEE Software seeks submissions for a July/August 2011 issue on the software business.

The special issue will focus on two questions: How do software creation and support organizations address an enterprise's existing business model—that is, how does a successful enterprise embrace software products and services to preserve or improve its competitiveness in the marketplace? And how does an enterprise whose primary focus is producing software (components, applications, services) find a successful business model for competing in the marketplace?

The guest editors have solicited papers on implementations in commercial, academic, and public entities as well as lessons learned

Articles are due by 1 December. 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.
