Call For Papers
ACM Transactions on Internet Technology (TOIT) is the premier multi-disciplinary scholarly journal on Internet/Web foundational and application technology and on social issues and public policy. Internet/Web technology encompasses many disciplines in computing, including computer software engineering, computer programming languages, middleware, management of unstructured, semi-structured and structured data, security, electronic commerce, knowledge discovery and data mining, multimedia data management, networking and distributed systems, communications, performance and scalability, etc. The social issues and public policy include all major ways in which use of Internet/Web technology impacts the society and people.

TOIT has historically focused on the technology and societal issues associated with the services on which the Internet is built, e.g., session layer and above. A good source for journal scope are the journal papers themselves. Prospective authors are encouraged to review past issues for a perspective on topic relevance. For further reference, we provide a non-inclusive list of topics that are generally appropriate for the journal:

    Digital mass media
    Digital rights management
    Electronic commerce
    Internet application programming environments
    Internet crime and law
    Internet performance and scalability
    Internet protocols
    Internet research platforms, e.g., PlanetLab, GENIE
    Library and education
    Online auctions and trading agents
    Online entertainment (music, movies, games, art, museums, etc.)
    Peer-to-peer networks
    Security and privacy
    Taxation and international trade
    Web measurements
    XML/HTML document management

Note: TOIT will accept survey papers very rarely, i.e. one or fewer a year---authors should most likely contact the editor-in-chief before considering submission.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Advances in Internet-Based Collaborative Technologies
Submission Date: 2018-01-30

Individuals, organizations, and government agencies are increasingly relying on Internet-enabled collaboration between distributed teams of humans, computer applications, and autonomous entities such as robots to develop products and deliver services. Technology trends in areas such as networking, data analytics, and distributed systems have significantly shifted the landscape of Internet based collaborative tools and services. This special section solicits papers describing novel and innovative Internet-based collaborative technologies that benefit from the emerging technologies. Indicative topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to: 1.Emerging Technology Trend • Sensor networks and collaborative edges • Social computing, crowdsourcing, and citizen science • Internet of Things • DevOps & agile methodologies • Autonomic computing • Fog and edge computing 2.Issues and Challenges • Security, privacy and trust • Creation and deployment of mobile services • Efficient and effective data-intensive computing • QoS model and management • Collaboration computing between human and machine • Resilient and trustworthy Internet 3.Applications, Systems and Platforms • E-Commerce • Large scale systems for threat detection • Internet-enabled large-scale collaborative services • Context-aware infrastructure and platforms • Location-aware mobile systems/applications • Big Data analytics infrastructure and architecture
