*** NEW JOURNAL ANNOUNCEMENT and FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS ***

(first issue will appear in Summer, 1992)
Aims and scope of SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMMING
The emergence of vector/parallel supercomputers has created a wealth of
new challenges and opportunities for scientific programmers. Currently,
however, reports on new developments in scientific programming are
scattered across a wide variety of journals devoted primarily to broader
subjects, and (often obscure) conference and workshop proceedings.
In the coming decade, as the world comes to rely more and more on
programming to solve real-world engineering, scientific and social
problems, the importance of new languages, tools, environments, and
compiler technology to support scientific programmers will increase
rapidly. By focussing attention on practical aspects of this emerging
technology , SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMMING will become mandatory reading
not only for all researchers in this area, but for practicing scientific
programmers as well.
International in scope, this new journal brings together for the first
time areas that until now have been thought of as distinct, and more
closely related to their parent discipline (parallel processing, software
engineering, compiler technology, specific application areas, etc.) than to
scientific programming. Papers within these related disciplines will be
chosen for publication only if they deal primarily with practical issues of
programming of general interest to scientific programmers and scientific
SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMMING provides a meeting ground for research in and
practical experience with software engineering environments, tools,
languages and paradigms aimed specifically at supporting scientific and
engineering computing. Coverage also includes vectorizing/parallelizing/
optimizing compiler techniques to support emerging supercomputer
architectures, as well as implementation techniques applicable across
several areas of scientific programming.

INFORMATION FOR CONTRIBUTORS:
1. Prospective authors should submit four copies of the manuscript
to Robert G. Babb II or Ronald H. Perrott (or one e-mail copy
of compressed, then uuencoded PostScript). Camera-ready
illustrations (original plus one copy) must accompany the
manuscript, but separate from it. All other correspondence
(concerning reprints, subscriptions, etc.) should be sent to
Diane Cerra, Professional and Trade Division, John Wiley and Sons,
Inc., 605 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10158, USA;
Diane's e-mail address is d.cerra at wiley.compuserve.com.
2. Types of manuscripts: Three types of contributions are considered
for publication: full-length articles, brief communications of 1000
words or less, and letters to the Editor. Letters and brief
communications can generally be published sooner than full-length
articles. All material submitted will be acknowledged on receipt and
(except for letters) subject to paper review. Copies of the referees'
comments will be forwarded to the author along with the Editor's
3. Copyright: With the advent of the new U.S. Copyright Law effective
January 1978, the transfer of copyright from author to publisher,
heretofore implicit in the submission of a manuscript, must now be
clearly stated in writing to enable the publisher to assure maximum
dissemination of the author's work. Therefore, a special transfer
of copyright agreement, signed and executed by the author, must be
enclosed with each manuscript submission. (If the article is a "work
made for hire" the agreement must be signed by the employer). A copy
of this form appears in the first and last issue of each volume.
Additional copies may be obtained from the Editor.
4. Format of Submitted Material:
All copy, including references and captions, must be typed double
spaced. The first page of the manuscript must bear the title
of the paper and the full names of the authors, their
affiliations and full addresses. In the case of multiple authors,
please indicate which author is to receive correspondence and proofs.
Financial support may be acknowledged in a footnote to the title.
All succeeding pages must bear the surname of the lead author and a
page number in the upper right-hand corner. An informative abstract
of 200 words or less is required for articles and brief
5. Style: In general, the style should follow the forms in the
various Transactions of the IEEE.
6. Organization: In general, the background and purpose of the study
should be stated first, followed by details of the methods, materials,
procedures, and equipment used. Findings, discussion, and conclusions
should follow in that order. Appendices may be employed where
7. Illustrations: All figures must be submitted in camera-ready form.
Photocopies, dot matrix, and computer printouts are not acceptable.
Line drawings should be of solid black and of an even weight
throughout. Computer programs should be camera-ready. All artwork
must be clearly labeled on the back.
8. Bibliography: The accuracy and completeness of the references is
the responsibility of the author. References to personal letters,
papers presented at meeting, and other unpublished material may be
included. If such material may be of help in the evaluation of the
paper, copies should be made available to the Editor. Papers which
are part of a series should include a citation of the previous paper.
Explanatory material may be appended to the end of a citation to avoid
footnotes in text.
9. Reprints: Reprints of articles may be ordered from the publisher
when corrected proofs are returned.
People interested in submitting manuscripts via electronic mail can
contact the Editors for details on how to do this.
