Five New IEEE Journal Titles in 2006

Through the Kelvin Smith Library, the CASE community has access to all IEEE titles through IEEE Xplore.

IEEE Announces Five New Journals for 2006
26 July 2005 -- Piscataway, NJ -- The IEEE has approved five new technical journals for publication in 2006, covering topics such as computational intelligence, vehicular technology, product safety engineering and information forensics. These journals will focus on emerging "breakthrough" technologies that can have a tremendous impact on industry as well as everyday lives. Titles will be available through the IEEE Xplore online delivery platform and various IEEE online collections, as well as by individual subscription.

IEEE Journal on Product Safety Engineering
Newly invented and manufactured electrical devices, particularly complex systems designed for human interaction, often pose a serious threat to the safety and well-being of their operators if they lack proper safety regulations. From fire protection to software safety, the imperative to maintain product security is at an all time high due to the rapid growth of technologies in the field of electrical engineering. Due to this growing imperative, a new forum dedicated to the enhancement of product safety has opened its doors for the sharing and development of new ideas and innovations.

IEEE Journal on Product Safety Engineering is a round-table for this forum, providing an opportunity for concepts and theories to converge and evolve out of a world-wide foundation. As stated in the IEEE Product Safety Engineering Society's constitution, the journal offers disparate key concerns surrounding the theory, design, development and implementation of product safety engineering for equipment devices used in scientific, engineering, industrial, commercial and residential arenas.

The journal will focus on the following main topics:
* Process control and automation equipment, robotics and laser optics systems, information technology equipment, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, networking systems-cabled and wireless, and software reliability for industries
* Medical devices and instrumentation
* Household appliances and other products for consumers
* Automotive, aeronautical, subspace, and underwater transportation systems
* Weapons systems, vehicles, and communications systems for military equipment
* Design safety topics

IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine
Computational intelligence is a multi-faceted discipline dedicated to the shared knowledge of design, theory, development, and application of biologically and linguistically motivated computational models.
Computational intelligence consists of a plethora of topics, such as neural networks, connectionist systems, genetic algorithms, evolutionary programming, fuzzy systems, and hybrid intelligent systems. The arena of interest that these subjects have combined to produce is overflowing with the demand for new outlets in which to merge and expand into newer, more advanced theories and innovations.

IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine is dedicated to serving this growing demand by acting as a production-base for application oriented papers pertaining to computational intelligence. Each issue will encompass the most up-to-date information on the subject, including the latest research, knowledge, and technological innovations in the field.

The journal will focus on the following main topics:
* Applications oriented development
* Successful industrial implementations
* Design tools
* Technology reviews
* Computational intelligence education
* Applied research

IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine
The future of automotive power and design depends greatly on the theoretical and practical knowledge of experienced professionals in the field of transportation, particularly those dedicated to the advancement of automotive electrical and electronic systems. Dependency on these systems is escalating due to the rising need for energy and cost-efficient fuel systems and battery powered engines. The ever-present need for an outlet into which new theories and technologies can flow and merge is crucial to the evolution of vehicular transportation systems.

IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine is a tool for engineers in the automotive transportation profession to utilize and expand on the most up-to-date research in the field. The magazine will consist of peer-reviewed articles covering the latest advances in the field, as well as the operational aspects of electrical and electronic engineering relevant to motor vehicles and associated land transportation infostructure. Some of the topics that the magazine covers will include the components, systems and motive power for propulsion and auxiliary functions, mobile radio technologies for terrestrial vehicular services, and land transportation components and systems used in both automated and non-automated facets of group transport technology. The magazine will also dedicate topical tutorials, surveys, and complete coverage of these subjects, as well as practical applications-oriented coverage of developments in varied fields of interest.

IEEE Computer Architecture Letters
Computers in the past were designed solely for one-on-one human interaction. Today, the science of computer architecture is taking computing to the next level by examining the effects of computer interaction with other computers. Through the selection and interconnection of their various hardware components, computers do not act merely as individual processors, but as conglomerate systems that meet better performance and cost efficient needs than do individual systems.

IEEE Computer Architecture Letters, a journal devoted specifically to the knowledge and advancement of computer architecture, is committed to publishing the most up-to-date, innovative and peer-oriented data in unti- and multi-processor computer systems, architecture, microarchitecture, workload characterization, performance evaluation and simulation techniques, and power-aware computing.

The journal will focus on the following main topics:
* Microprocessor and multiprocessor systems
* Microarchitecture and ILP Processors
* Workload characterization
* Performance evaluation and simulation techniques
* Complier-hardware and operating system-hardware interactions
* Interconnect architectures
* Memory and cache systems
* Power and thermal issues at the architecture level
* I/O architectures and techniques
* Independent validation of previously published results
* Analysis of unsuccessful techniques
* Network and embedded-systems processors
* Real-time and high-availability architectures
* Reconfigurable systems

IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security

Information forensics and security pertains to the importance of the diverse theory and design aspects that currently surround computer security issues and technologies. It provides a focal point for the critical research and data behind information forensics, security, surveillance, and systems applications, as well as important contributions made to these fields by mathematics and other disciplines.

IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (previously announced) will provide a new threshold for the growing industry of information forensics and computer security to cross and expand in coming years. The periodical will offer the most current ideas and technologies surrounding coding, hardware, agents, signal processing, fingerprinting, steganography, metrics and validation, damage assessment, tracing code, and data mining for digital forensic evidence and digital watermarking.

The journal will focus on the following main topics:
* Cryptography and network security
* Digital information forensics systems
* Biometrics
* Multimedia security and content protection
* Attacks and countermeasures
* Trustworthy design and implementation
* Digital rights management
