Call for Articles for IEEE Computer
IEEE Computer seeks submissions for an April 2013 special issue on cybersecurity.
(Impact Factor: 1.470 -- 5-Year Impact Factor: 2.111)
Recent technological advances in computing, communications, software, and hardware have enabled the
significant growth of cyberspace, an important aspect of modern life that continues to transform the way
citizens, business, and governments interact, collaborate, and conduct business. Our heavy dependence on
various digital infrastructures has made them strategic national assets that must be protected to ensure
economic growth, prosperity, and safety in the future.
Cybersecurity is an emerging area of intense activity that endeavors to provide innovative solutions to
ensure uninterrupted communications and service availability. This special issue aims to disseminate the
latest advances in cybersecurity that are critical in thwarting future threats, attacks, fraud, and damage. The
content will focus on effective techniques and approaches that have the potential to ensure a safe,
trustworthy, secure, and resilient cyberspace.
Appropriate topics of interest for this special issue include but are not limited to
* cybersecurity approaches for critical infrastructures in public sectors including water supply,
electricity, gas, transportation, and so on;
* cyberthreat modeling and analysis;
* solutions to mitigate cyberattacks and cybercrime;
* visual analytics and risk management techniques for cybersecurity;
* testbeds, tools, methodologies for cybersecurity experimentation;
* cybersecurity education, policy, law, and regulation.
Articles should be understandable to a broad audience of computing science and engineering
professionals. The writing should be practical and original, avoiding a focus on theory, mathematics,
jargon, and abstract concepts. 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.
