          DUE DATE: April 15, 1999 
          SUBMISSION ADDRESS: http://www.acm.org/crossroads/submit/ 
          INFORMATION: crossroads@acm.org

The Crossroads editorial staff invites authors to submit articles dealing 
with topics drawn from several areas pertaining to Markup Languages. 
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. 

     History, future, and comparisons of markup languages like 
          Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), 
          Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), 
          Extensible Markup Language (XML), 
          Java Speech Markup Language (JSML), 
          Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL), 
          Handheld Device Markup Language (HDML), 
          Virtual Reality Markup Language (VRML) 
          etc. 

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/). 

Crossroads is published both online and in print. We have a print 
circulation of about 15,000. 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 April 15, 1999. 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@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.
