Subject: [Siit] Call for Papers for Special Journal Issue on "Standards and
Open Source Software"

Could you please forward the following CfP to those who may be interested?
Thank you.

Call for Papers

for a Special Issue of Computer Standards & Interfaces (Elsevier) on

Cross-fertilization between Standards and Open Source Software

Guest Editors: Tineke M. Egyedi and Rishab Aiyer Ghosh

Submission deadline full papers: 1st of July 2004

Increasingly, standards and free / libre / open source software (OSS) are
discussed and treated as a natural dyad by IT-policy makers and -managers.
But are they? If so, in what manner and from which angle? If not, what
causes the confusion?

Aim and scope

The relationship between standards and OSS is not at all self-evident.
This special issue aims to explore the area of interaction at the crossroad
of both fields, an area that threatens to be overlooked in research which
specialises in either field. It wants to draw attention to several
interesting issues in the area of overlap. Possible topics include but are
not limited to:

*	comparison between standardisation and OSS processes
(commonalities and differences; their solution and limitations; etc.)
*	critical analyses of  projects that address both standards and
OSS issues
*	case studies of OSS standardisation
*	interoperability and compatibility issues regarding OSS
*	using OSS in/for standardisation, implementation, certification,

We seek papers that reflect state-of-the-art insight and research in this
field, and illustrate different viewpoints.

Important Dates

-	Submission of papers: 1st of July
-	Notification of acceptance/rejection: 1st of August
-	Submission of final paper: 1st of September 2004
-	Publication of special issue envisaged: November 2004

The schedule may be subject to revisions. Prospective authors are invited to
make themselves known to the editors ahead of time to facilitate
harmonization of the issue and ensure that the authors will be informed of
any change.

Submission Guidelines

We sollicit full papers. These will undergo a double-blind review process.
Please submit them electronically to both guest editors: Tineke M. Egyedi
(T.M.Egyedi@tbm.tudelft.nl) and Rishab Aiyer Ghosh (rishab@dxm.org), and
take into account the following guidelines:

- the paper should not exceed 6,000 words (i.e. roughly 8-12 pages in 12 pt
font format, including figures and tables)
- all author contact information should be included on the first page
