Special Issue on Fine-Grained Visual Categorization
With the techniques for standard supervised image classification becoming increasingly practical, fine-grained image categorization where images are classified into subordinate categories, have recently attracted a lot of attention and become an important task in computer vision. Examples of fine-grained visual categorization include but are not limited to recognizing, e.g., detailed animal species, specific sub-groups of plants, and car makers and models. Compared with the general-purpose image categorization tasks, such as the ImageNet Challenge of 1,000 general categories, fine-grained categorization pays attention to subtle details that are not easily captured using the off-the-shelf image classifiers -- a promising direction in visual perception and image understanding beyond generic labels. In addition, the absence of sufficient training data with the presence of a large number of fine-grained categories, e.g., about 10K species for birds and over 250K species for flowers, makes the problem of fine-grained visual categorization particularly interesting and challenging.
Applying deep neural networks, which are proposed for general-purpose image classification, to fine-grained visual categorization has led to notable performance improvement, but the fine-grained categorization problem cannot be solved merely by training modern deep convolutional neural networks. In the past, results for fine-grained image categorization have been mostly attained using classifiers with strong supervision, where detailed labels such as body parts, attributes, and viewpoints are manually annotated and used in training. Many questions generally arise when the fine-grained categorization task is made more general and broad: How do we alleviate the burden of having fine-grained manual annotations? How can top-down information and domain knowledge be included? How can we make the best use of web data and online resources like Mechanical Turk?
IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI), a monthly archival publication, is seeking submissions that discuss the most important research results in all traditional areas of computer vision and image understanding, all traditional areas of pattern analysis and recognition, and selected areas of machine intelligence.

Special Issue on Holistic Technologies for Managing Internet of Things Services
Internet of Things (IoT) service systems are aimed at monitoring and controlling the behavior of the physical world using a vast interlinked network of devices such as sensors, gateways, switches, routers, computing resources, applications/services, and humans to link the digital world with the physical. IoT service systems drive the vision of a smart interconnected digital-physical world where interactions among different components can be handled in a proper way. The challenges of IoT service systems are also significant, such as fast growth of the scale, deep complexity of data sensing and processing, intense system monitoring in real time, and efficient and effective management for IoT-based service systems (smart grid, smart healthcare, industry4.0, fog/edge). To address the above challenges, novel technologies that have to be investigated include high performance control methods, efficient detection and protection for IoT security, and cross-layer technologies for IoT service systems.
Special Issue on Blockchain-Based Services Computing
Blockchain has become a hot research area in academia and industry. A blockchain is a continuously growing list of records of value transfer transactions maintained by a peer-to-peer network through a distributed consensus mechanism. Blockchain technology has promising characteristics regarding decentralization, persistency, anonymity and auditability that could greatly improve the cost-effectiveness of inter-organization business processes. Blockchain can be applied to many fields of services computing, e.g., big data, cloud computing, digital economy, intelligent contracts, Internet-of-Things, security, etc. Non-functional innovations in blockchain-based services computing is essential to improving the efficacy of blockchain. This special issue focuses on presenting novel approaches to integrating blockchain and services computing techniques as well as factual insights on what new challenges and requirements exist in doing so.

Special Issue on Intersection of Computing and Communication Technologies with Energy Systems
Computing and communication technologies impact energy systems in two distinct ways. The exponential growth of these technologies has made them large energy consumers. Therefore, new architectures, technologies and systems are being developed and deployed to make computing and networked system more energy efficient. Additionally, these technologies will play a central role in the on-going transformation of our energy systems. They help measure, monitor and control energy resources, inform and shape human demand, and determine how utilities, generators, regulators, and consumers interact. Recently, there have been vibrant developments in the research community at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with energy systems. Diverse applications of computing and networked systems have made legacy systems more energy-efficient, as well as improved the design, analysis, and development of innovative new energy systems.
This special issue calls for novel ideas for shaping the future of this area. We seek high-quality papers at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with energy systems.
