IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications plans a November/December 2014 special issue on The Next Big Thing.
The guest editors seek papers on topics that authors believe are the start of the next new wave in computer graphics. They are looking for coverage of risky ideas, and work that is significantly different from current mainstream topics but that has some evidence of potential.
They welcome papers—from commercial and academic sources, from researchers and practitioners—on topics such as insights or techniques from other disciplines that accelerate or improve a computer-graphics method, as well as new applications of graphics to other disciplines.
Articles are due 7 March 2014. Visit www.computer.org/portal/web/computingnow/cgacfp6 to view the complete call for papers.
IEEE Intelligent Systems plans a September/October 2014 special issue on cyborg intelligence.
There have been numerous advances in the multidisciplinary fields of brain–machine interfaces (BMIs), artificial intelligence, brain neuroscience, microelectronics, and neurophysiology.
Cyborg intelligence aims to connect machines and living beings via BMIs. This special issue is will explore methods and systems in this area.
Articles are due 20 March 2014. Visit http://www.computer.org/intelligent/cfp5 to view the complete call for papers.
IEEE Software plans a November/December 2014 special issue on virtual teams.
Projects with team members located around the globe have become increasingly common in software, R&D, and business processes across all industry sectors. Improving the effectiveness and efficiency of virtual teams is therefore increasingly critical.
This special issue aims to collect empirically validated solutions that help increase the efficiency and effectiveness of virtual teams or that increase the quality of their outcomes.
Articles are due 1 April 2014. Visit www.computer.org/software/cfp6 to view the complete call for papers.
IEEE Software plans a January/February 2015 special issue on software engineering for Internet computing: Internetware and beyond.
The Internet, once just a network of networks, has become not only the platform of choice for delivering services to increasingly mobile users but also the connective tissue among people, information, and things.
The open, dynamic, and evolving environment of Internet computing continues to demand new software technologies.
This special issue seeks articles that explore state-of-the-art software-engineering research and industry practices for Internet computing.
Articles are due 1 June 2014. Visit www.computer.org/software/cfp1 to view the complete call for papers.
IEEE MultiMedia plans a July–September 2015 special issue on social multimedia and storytelling—how to use social media to capture, mine, and re-create experiences, events, and places.
The pervasive use of media-capturing devices and the wide adoption of social-networking platforms have led to the proliferation of online content captured at various places and events. Such content holds great potential for deriving richer representations of the depicted places and events.
However, the uncontrolled nature of user-contributed content and the social media life cycle's complexity raise significant research challenges related to both the effective collection, mining, and indexing of social multimedia and their combination, creative reuse, and presentation.
This special issue's objective is to revisit how social multimedia is transforming the way multimedia content is captured, shared, and made available to others.
Articles are due 20 July 2014. Visit www.computer.org/portal/web/computingnow/mmcfp3 to view the complete call for papers.
