Dear colleagues,

you might find of interest the following CFP

Best regards


IEEE Communications Magazine
Feature Topic on
 New Converged Telecommunications Applications for the End User

The transition to All-IP networks, and the resulting convergence of the
networks and the data they carry, is enabling a new generation of
telecommunications applications and services.  The first wave of these new
capabilities is focusing on using broadband in mobile contexts and
combinations of services from historically distinct domains (e.g, unified
messaging systems, mixing of web and voice services, dynamic address books,
or easy transfer of voice calls from wireless to wireline), but
fundamentally new, hybrid capabilities might also emerge.  The ubiquity of
the Internet Protocol is enabling broad diversity in services architectures
(from the traditional monolithic style, to full peer-to-peer, to various
hybrids), and thereby providing fertile ground for exploration of just where
to put what forms of service "intelligence".    Convergence has transformed
the Communication Service Provider (CSP) landscape, with the traditional
telcos maintaining their differentiating ownership of the networks, but with
portals, search engines, email providers, and other Application Service
Providers developing a variety of innovative services supported by new
business models.

In this Feature Topic issue of IEEE Communications Magazine, we solicit
papers that provide an update and new insights into the applications and
services that a converged world is bringing. The issue will concentrate on
application-only topics in the field of services for the individual/personal
user. With this purpose in mind we solicit one or two basic papers which
explain the new potential now at hand, and also four or five papers
describing examples of what may be anticipated for the next few years.

Focused tutorial and survey contributions are solicited related to
mass-market user-targeted converged services and applications in any of the
following topic areas:

§  Service convergence from the user perspective (beyond simple fixed-mobile

§  User-centric communications; Rich Communications Suite (RCS)

§  Ambient and ubiquitous services (location-, presence-, session-, and
context-aware services)

§  New services for mobile terminals with the incorporation of new
capabilities in mobile phones (SmartSIM, NFC, OpenOS, mobile broadband,
small-screen application stores, big-screen services, handset

§  Intuitive and personalized user experience and usability

§  Social communications; Telco 2.0 communication applications, including
connections to Web 2.0

§  Mobility services including car infotainment

§  User-generated services

Paper submission
Articles should be tutorial in nature and written in a style comprehensible
to readers outside the specialty of the article. References should be
limited to 10, figures and tables to a combined total of 6 (mathematical
equations should be avoided). Paper length should not exceed 4,500 words.
Complete guidelines can be found at
http://www.comsoc.org/livepubs/ci1/info/sub_guidelines.html. All articles
must be submitted through the IEEE Manuscript Central
(http://commag-ieee.manuscriptcentral.com), selecting November
2010/Telecommunications Applications as the topic.
