> professional organization, the Association for Computing Machinery.
> I'm writing to you because we are calling for articles related to
> Computer Science Eduation for our Summer 2004 issue. You're 
> invited to submit an article and to pass this announcement along 
> to your colleagues who might be interested in submitting an article 
> to Crossroads for this issue (both graduate and undergraduate 
> students). The "Call for Articles" is below...

> The Crossroads editorial staff invites authors to submit articles
> dealing with topics drawn from several areas pertaining to computer
> science education.  The following partial list of topics is provided to
> give prospective authors ideas for articles and is by no means
> exhaustive; other relevant topics will be considered. Papers that draw
> connections between two or more of these areas are especially welcome.
> What is a good first programming language? 
> Computer science education in small colleges 
> Mentoring women and ethnic minorities in computer science
> Supporting undergraduate research projects 
> Detecting plagiarism 
> Teaching writing skills to computer science undergrads 
> Constructivist learning in computer science 
> International perspectives on computer science education 
> Interdisciplinary curriculum for computer science majors
> Enriching computer science education with internships and co-ops
> Distance learning in computer science 
> The use of Open Source Software and Linux in schools 
> Practical research efforts that enhance classroom learning 
> The role of mathematics and critical thinking skills in computer science
> Articles should include a basic description of the kinds of problems
> being worked on, the state of the art of research, the state of the art
> of commercial applications, open problems, or future research/commercial
> development trends. Interviews with researchers; reviews of related
> books, software, videos, or conferences; and opinion columns on related
> issues are also welcome. We especially encourage both undergraduate
> and graduate students to submit articles. However, articles written or
> coauthored by professionals will also be considered.
> Crossroads articles should be written for a broad audience. They should
> be easily understandable by someone who has had only the most basic
> computer science instruction, and yet still be interesting to the
> advanced computer enthusiast. Articles longer than 6000 words will
> generally not be considered for publication. Feature articles should be
> between 1500 and 6000 words; reviews should be between 800 and 2000
> words; and opinion columns should be between 800 and 3000 words.
> Articles should be written in a magazine style rather than a research
> paper style. In consideration of our diverse readership, authors should
> try to use language that is inclusive of people regardless of their
> gender, race, religion, nationality, or field of study. Additional
> writing guidelines and submission information are available online at
> the Crossroads web site
> (http://www.acm.org/crossroads/doc/information/writing.html).
> Crossroads is published both online and in print. We have a print
> circulation of about 20,000. All back issues are available for free on
> our website. Authors that have an article printed in Crossroads can
> receive complementary copies of the issue they were published in.
> All submissions should be formatted in HTML or plain text format and
> submitted via http://www.acm.org/crossroads/submit/
> Submissions are due 10 November 2003 . They will be reviewed shortly
> thereafter and authors of accepted submissions will be notified within
> two to three weeks of the deadline.
> Prospective authors are invited to send email to the editors of
> Crossroads (crossroads at acm.org) indicating their intention to submit an
> article. In this way we can keep everyone informed of any changes in
> deadlines or formats and to make sure we have a good variety of
> articles. General questions should also be sent to the Crossroads
> editors.
