Virtual Machines In Pervasive Computing

IEEE Pervasive Computing invites submissions on the use of virtual
machines in pervasive computing.

First decisions: 16 June 2009
Revisions due: 7 July 2009
Final Acceptances: 21 July 2009
Issue to press: September 2009
Author guidelines: www.computer.org/pervasive/author.htm
Submission address: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pc-cs

Virtual machines provide a computing container that appears to be a
physical computer and that can run a conventional OS and
applications. Such virtual machines are now in wide use in datacenter
and desktop computing, and multiple benefits are being realized from
their use. These include the ability to easily encapsulate, deploy,
clone, and manage applications, run multiple computing environments on
the same system without sacrificing performance or security isolation,
move running environments between systems, and recover quickly from
hardware failures.

With the growing number of increasingly capable pervasive devices,
virtual machines are becoming popular in pervasive computing. While
the benefits mentioned above also apply to pervasive computing, their
realization is complicated by the intrinsic differences of pervasive
and desktop/datacenter computing - mobility, distrusted systems,
limited energy sources and other resource constraints, personal use of
multiple devices, etc. This special issue is focused on better
understanding these complications, exploring solutions to them, and
evaluating pervasive-computing specific benefits of
virtualization. Example topics for this special issue include but are
not limited to the following

* applications or services built on top of virtual machines, including
 Virtual Appliances, Virtual Appliance ensembles, and Virtual Desktop

* creation and distribution of virtual machines including image
 management, end-user experience, payment models/mechanisms, patch and
 update mechanisms, and trust

* mechanisms for deploying such applications/services to
 mobile/ubiquitous devices

* management of such deployed virtual machines including mechanisms
 for discontinuous management and digital rights management

* migration of virtual machines between mobile/ubiquitous devices
 including mechanisms for addressing virtual-machine data loss,
 network-speed discontinuities, and dissimilar platform capabilities

* security and privacy concerns from the perspective of users of
 virtual machines or computing platform providers including mechanisms
 for enforcing or increasing trust between these two groups

* all aspects of performance including the performance impact of
 running mobile/pervasive applications within virtual machines,
 downloading virtual machines, and distributing updates/patches for

* hardware support for making virtualization more viable on resource
 constrained mobile/pervasive devices such as cell phones

* case studies reporting the experience and lessoned-learned from the
 development, deployment, use, or maintenance of virtual-machine-based
 pervasive applications or solutions

* services that operate below the virtual machine that enable
 pervasive computing, such as update or patching services or encryption

* surveys

Submissions should be 4,000 to 6,000 words long and should follow the
magazine's guidelines on style and presentation. All submissions will
be peer-reviewed in accordance with normal practice for scientific
publications. Submissions should be received by 1 May 2009 to receive
full consideration.

In addition to full-length submissions, we also invite
work-in-progress submissions of 250 words or less (submit to
pervasive@xxxxxxxxxxxx) These will not be peer-reviewed but will be
reviewed by the Department Editor, Anthony Joseph, and, if accepted,
edited by the staff into a feature for the issue. The deadline for
work-in-progress submissions is 1 September 2009.

Guest Editors:
 Keith Farkas, VMware Inc. (kfarkas@xxxxxxxxxx)
 Chandra Narayanaswami, IBM (chandras@xxxxxxxxxx)
 Jason Nieh, Columbia (nieh@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
