Call for Papers: General Submissions
IEEE Transactions on Computers seeks general submissions.

IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC), the flagship journal for the IEEE Computer Society, is a monthly publication with a wide distribution to researchers, developers, technical managers, and educators in the computer field. It publishes papers on research in areas of current interest to the readers, including but not limited to the following:

  • Computer organizations and architectures (multi-/many-cores, interconnection networks, accelerators, application-specific, domain-specific and reconfigurable processors, processing-in-memory, near-data processing, high-performance computing, datacenters)
    • Operating systems, software systems, and cloud computing (runtime systems, parallel and distributed systems, virtualization, software-hardware interactions)
    • Real-time, mobile and embedded systems (Internet of Things, edge computing, wearables, actuators, sensor networks)
    • Digital devices and computer components (volatile and non-volatile emerging memory technologies, solid-state devices for storage, network-on-chips, emerging technologies for interconnects)
    • Specification, design, prototyping, and testing methods and tools
    • Performance, fault tolerance, reliability, security, and testability (availability, scalability, energy/power management)
    • Case studies and experimental and theoretical evaluations (workload characterization, tracing, analyzing, troubleshooting)
    • Emerging computing models (computing issues for emerging technologies and applications, machine learning, approximate computing, quantum computing, neuromorphic computing, analog computing)

Submission: Submitted articles must not have been previously published or currently submitted for journal publication elsewhere and should adhere to the submission guidelines. Please submit your paper at In addition to full papers, brief contributions are also considered.

Extended versions of published conference papers are welcome, but they must have at least 30% new impacting technical/scientific material in the submitted journal version, and there should be less than 50% verbatim similarity as reported by a tool (such as CrossRef). Additionally, the conference papers and the detailed summary differences must be included as part of the journal submission to TC.

Featured Paper and Best Paper Awards: All accepted manuscripts will be automatically considered for the monthly Featured Paper and the Annual Best Paper Award.
