Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is pleased to announce the call for papers for a special issue of “Intelligent Transportation Systems and Mobile Communication toward Super Smart Society.”
The future super smart society requires high intelligent transportation and information communication techniques, which have attracted much interest in the research and development of smarter communication protocols, and their experimental evaluation and commercialization, etc. In the recent years, there has been significant progress in advancement of in-vehicle systems by artificial intelligence, connection of in-vehicle devices by wireless networks, high precision positioning techniques and sensing techniques for improving in-vehicle services, and trials in autonomous driving, etc., in the area of intelligent transportation systems, and significant progress in mobile ad hoc and sensor networks, wearable devices, and ubiquitous services in the area of mobile communications.
In the special issue of “Intelligent Transportation Systems and Mobile Communication toward Super Smart Society,” the program committee especially seeks paper submissions in these areas, as follows.
・Mobile Computing System(Architecture, Protocol, Management, Security)
・Sensor Network, Information Appliance / Home Network, Ad-hoc Network
・Communication Medium (3G Cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, IrDA, DSRC, Digital Broadcasting, etc.)
・Mobile / Ubiquitous / Wearable Computing
・Mobile Agent, Mobile Web Service
・Mobile Application, RFID Tag
・Intelligent Transportation System
・Geometry Information System, Location Aware Service
・HMI, High Performance Handheld Devices, Electronic Settlement, Security, QoS, OS
・Transportation Management (Supply Chain Management, Traffic Estimation and Prediction System)
・Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
・Image Processing (Lane Departure Warning System, Object Recognition, Traffic Flow Observation)
・Ubiquitous / Internet Intelligent Transportation System
Not only papers about the above topics but also papers relevant to intelligent transportation system and mobile computing topics will be welcome. We invite Prof. Obana at The University of Electro- Communications as the guest editor for this special issue.
Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is currently encouraging more submissions from outside of Japan.
Any papers electronically submitted to JIP before July 31, 2017 are eligible for 30% discount in publication charge when accepted.
