 Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is pleased to announce the call for papers for a special issue of “Intelligent Transportation Systems and Mobile Communication for Realizing Smart Cities”.

 A smart city is a municipality that utilizes cutting-edge technologies such as IT and environmental technology to realize a safe, secure and comfortable life. Currently, significant research effort is made to realize such a sustainable social system that is efficient, friendly to both human and environment. The research topics spread over various fields such as transportation systems, infrastructure, energy and medical care, and research topics might include autonomous demand buses, improving efficiency of logistics by platooning of trucks, cooperation between charging systems of electric vehicles and solar power generation, and supporting elderly by wearable devices, for example.
 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 (5G Cellular, LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, IrDA, DSRC, Digital Broadcasting, etc.)
・Mobile / Pervasive / Ubiquitous / Wearable Computing
・Mobile Agent, Mobile Web Service
・Mobile Application, RFID Tag
・Intelligent Transportation System, Autonomous Cars
・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. Saito at Kanazawa Institute of Technology as the guest editor for this special issue.

Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is currently encouraging more submissions from outside of Japan.
The publication fee of any accepted papers will not be charged if all the authors of the paper belong to institutes outside Japan.
