IEEE Computing in Science & Engineering, Special Issue on Cloud Computing in Science & Engineering
Submissions due: November 04, 2012
Estimated Publication date: July/August, 2013
Cloud computing has emerged as a dominant paradigm that has been widely adopted by enterprises. Clouds provide on-demand access to computing utilities, an abstraction of unlimited computing resources, and support for on-demand scale up, scale down and scale out. Clouds are also rapidly joining more traditional computing platforms as viable platforms for scientific exploration and discovery, and education. As a result, understanding application formulations and usage modes that are meaningful in such a hybrid infrastructure, what are the fundamental conceptual and technological challenges, and how applications can effectively utilize it, is critical.
The goal of this special issue of CiSE is to explore how Clouds platforms and abstractions, either by themselves or in combination with other platforms, can be effectively used to support real-world science and engineering applications. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) algorithmic and application formulations, programming models and systems, runtime systems and middleware, end-to-end application workflows and experiences with real applications.
Published by the IEEE Computer Society, Computing in Science & Engineering 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.
We strongly encourage submissions that include multimedia, data, and community content, which will be featured on the IEEE Computer Society website along with the accepted papers.

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 30 percent new material. Manuscripts should be written in the active voice, should be no longer than 7,200 words (counting each standard figure and table as 250 words), and should follow the style and presentation guidelines of CiSE (see www.computer.org/cise/author 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 email@example.com.
