Europe Region Special Section of CACM Co-Edited by Prof. Jarke

March 22nd, 2022

Every three years, Communications of the ACM, the flagship journal of the world’s largest computer science association, publishes a Special Section on important IT advances in a large world region. Professors Jessia Cauchard (Ben Gurion University, Israel), Matthias Jarke (RWTH Aachen University and Fraunhofer FIT), and Nuria Oliver (ELLIS Association, Spain) were invited by CACM Chief Editor Andrew Chien to edit the second Europe Region Special Section, published in April 2022 in volume 65, issue 4.

Six full papers on big trends and eleven short hot topic articles, selected from over 100 initial submissions, present highlights of recent research and innovation in Europe and Israel. Authors come from universities, research organizations including Fraunhofer and Jülich Research Center, and industrial start-ups and research centers. For example, papers with German co-authors demonstrate leadership in areas such as energy informatics, process management, trustworthy 6G communication, HPC cloud infrastructures, on-skin computing, European data spaces, and Internet of Production.  A video about the CACM Europe Special Section can be found under, the Special Section contents under
