Special Issue on Transparent Computing and Applications

Tentative Submissions due: 1 February 2016
Estimated Publication date: January/February 2017

CiSE seeks original manuscripts for a special issue on Transparent Computing and Applications. It is expected to have four to six papers intended to address challenges in recent computer operating paradigms due to the rapid advances in computer hardware, software, and networking technologies. Specifically, Transparent Computing is an emerging system technology with streaming-based scheduling and execution, and user-oriented and platform-independent services. Transparent Computing enables an arbitrary computing device to accomplish local tasks efficiently through demanding to computing and storage services resided in remote servers. The intention of this special issue is to provide a forum and report up-to-date research and applications in this fast growing area.

Authors are asked to submit high-quality original work that has neither appeared in nor is under consideration by other journals. All submissions will be peer-reviewed following standard journal practices. Manuscripts based on previously published conference papers must be extended substantially to include at least 50 percent new material. Manuscripts should be written in the active voice, should be no longer than 6,000 words (counting each standard figure and table as 250 words), and should follow the style and presentation guidelines of CiSE (see http://www.computer.org/web/peer-review/magazines for details).

Please submit your article using the online manuscript submission service at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cs-ieee. When uploading your article, select the appropriate special-issue title under the category "Manuscript Type." Also include complete contact information for all authors. If you have any questions about submitting your article, contact the peer review coordinator at cise@computer.org.

Copublished by the IEEE Computer Society and the American Institute of Physics, Computing in Science & Engineering (CiSE) magazine features the latest computational science and engineering research in an accessible format, along with departments covering news and analysis, CSE in education, and emerging technologies.
