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 “Intelligent Transportation Systems and Pervasive Systems in the New Normal Era”.
Fifth-generation Mobile Communications System (5G) is going to impact on many social infrastructures including the Intelligent Transport Systems. Just at this moment, a pandemic of COVID-19 occurs and many aspects of the society have changed suddenly. Then the New Normal Era will come after the pandemic. The mobile and Intelligent Transport Systems are driven not only by the new emerging technologies such as 5G, but also the changes in social conditions. It is timely and meaningful to have special issues dedicated to both technological and social issues.
In the special issue of “Intelligent Transportation Systems and Pervasive Systems in the New Normal Era”, the program committee especially seeks paper submissions in these areas, as follows.
・Mobile Communication System (Architecture, Protocol, Management, Security)
・Sensor Network, Information Appliance / Home Network, Ad-hoc Network
・Communication Media (5G, LTE, Wi-Fi,, Bluetooth, ZigBee, IrDA, DSRC, Digital Broadcasting)
・Mobile / Pervasive / Ubiquitous / Wearable Computing
・Mobile Agent, Mobile Web Service
・AI / Edge Computing / Cyber-Physical System
・Mobile Application (Smart Mobility, Healthcare), RFID Tag System
・Intelligent Transportation System
・Geographic Information System, Location-Based Service
・Human Machine Interface High Performance Handheld Devices, Electronic Payment, 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
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.
