I would suggest 'Security' as a hot topic for research. It has lot of scope, applicability in the near and long term(like web security, user identity management in a enterprise level etc).

IMO,security is important but doing a research in this area is not so easy as everybody suggesting.Doing research in security means what? Cryptography or network security or IP Security or Web security or Firewall? The aobve mentioned areas are very diverse.There is difference between cryptographer,security engineer and network engineer.

Moving to General Computing...


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

I thought math is part and parcel of any Computer Science related research. Every basic data structure involves some inherent level of Math.

With respect to Security you need a knack for bit-wise operations if you want to create more robust encryption algorithms etc.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
