                              Call for Papers

                              Special Issue of
         International Journal of Computer Systems Science & Engineering
                               ATM Switching

Guest Editors: Hussein T. Mouftah, Queen's University, Canada
               Mohammed Atiquzzaman, Monash University, Australia.
Papers are solicited for a special issue of the International Journal of 
Computer Systems Science & Engineering on Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) 
Switching to be published in the third quarter of 1996.

During the past decade, a considerable amount of effort has been made in 
studying and designing ATM switches which is believed to be the most 
developed aspect of ATM. The field has now become a mature area and ATM 
switches are becoming commercially available. This special issue will 
include a set of original and survey articles from both industry and 
academia that represents the current state-of-the-art in ATM switching. 
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

   o Switch architectures       o Fault tolerance
   o Buffering schemes          o Congestion control and traffic management
   o Performance modeling       o Practical experience & field trials
   o Buffer management          o Simulation techniques for large switches
   o Commercial switches

Five copies of complete manuscripts (not to exceed 25 double-spaced pages) 
should be sent to Mohammed Atiquzzaman by 1 February 1996. Please include a 
title page containing author(s) names and affiliations, postal addresses, 
e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and fax numbers. Electronic (PostScript 
only) submissions are encouraged. Authors should follow the IJCSSE 
manuscript submission format.
