> Call For Articles
> Crossroads, the Association for Computing Machinery

> DUE DATE: 29 September 2003
> SUBMISSION ADDRESS: http://www.acm.org/crossroads/submit/
> INFORMATION: crossroads at acm.org
> http://www.acm.org/crossroads/doc/cfas/ethics.html
> The Crossroads editorial staff invites authors to submit articles
> dealing with topics drawn from several areas pertaining to ethics and
> computer science.  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.
> * Social consequences of technology
> * Surveillance and privacy post-September 11th
> * Professional ethics in software development
> * Information stewardship
> * Computer crimes and hackers
> * Censorship on the Internet
> * International perspectives on ethics in computer science
> * Digital rights management and fair use
> * Copyright laws for the programmer
> * Internet filtering in schools and libraries
> * Supporting civil society with the Internet
> * The ethical consequences of the use of Open Source software
> 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 29 September 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.
