Editorial Committee of the Journal of Information Processing

Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is pleased to announce the call for papers for a special issue of “Software Engineering”. Authors may submit papers to the regular paper submission process of JIP; or authors may submit symposium papers (full papers) accepted for Software Engineering Symposium 2019 (SES 2019), sponsored by Special Interest Group of Software Engineering, IPSJ. In the latter case, submitted papers will be reviewed not only as symposium papers but also as the papers for this issue simultaneously (provided that authors want it). The guest editor of this special issue is Prof. Takashi Ishio of Nara Institute of Science and Technology.

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.
