Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is pleased to announce the call for papers for a special issue of “Mobile Computing and Intelligent Transport Systems for Next-generation Society and Smart Community”.

 Toward the realization of Society 5.0, further development of IoT technologies that collect and utilize data from sensors and various devices, and artificial intelligence technologies that support the utilization of all data is desired. The technologies will enable to create smarter communities, newer services, solutions and industries. In addition, mobile networks, mobile device technologies, and mobile service design technologies will further support social infrastructures targeting not only high performance but also high reliability and sustainability. The importance of these information and communication technologies to support the new social systems that will emerge in the swell of major social changes in the future is increasing, and a variety of research and development is being actively conducted, from basic theory to social implementation and real-world applications. In particular, in the research field of mobile computing and advanced transportation systems, there is a great deal of ongoing research and development. For example, B5G/6G, edge computing, sensing technology using mobile and IoT devices will enable cyber-physical systems that can make predictions and optimizations, and feed them back to the real world.
Taking such big trends into consideration, the theme of the special issue aims to capture recent results, emerging approaches, and technical solutions for dealing with mobile networks, edge computing, sensing technology using mobile terminals and IoT devices, cyber-physical systems for next-generation society and smart community. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
・Mobile Communication System (Architecture, Protocol, QoS, Management, Security)
・Sensor Network, IoT Appliance / Home Network, Next-Generation Mesh Network
・Communication Media (6G, LPWA, Satellite, Millimeter-Wave, Wireless LAN, NFC)
・Mobile / Pervasive / Ubiquitous / Wearable Computing
・AI / Edge Computing / Cyber-Physical System / Big Data
・Mobile Application (Smart Mobility, Healthcare, Interface)
・Intelligent Transportation System, Geographic Information System, Location-Based Service
・Transportation Management (Supply Chain Management, Traffic Estimation and Prediction System)
・Advanced Driver Assistance Systems(Traffic Control, Driving Assistance, Autonouimous System,Automatic Driving, Traffic Simulation)
・Image Processing (Object Recognition, Lane Departure Warning System, Traffic Flow Observation, Risky Situation Detection)
・V2X・MEC・V2V・Vehicle Cloud

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.

Submission Guidelines

(1) All papers must be submitted electronically. Please access the following URL and proceed under the submission instructions:

Once you have submitted your manuscript, you cannot change it.
So, you must submit the final version of your manuscript.
If, by mistake, you submitted a wrong version, please contact the IPSJ secretariat <> (Replace -at- with @).

In the event you would like to make a submission, you must first create an account on the paper submission Web page. For detailed information, please refer to the manual available from the link “Instructions & Forms” at the top of the submission page.

(2) All papers will be reviewed. The review process will be carried out in the same manner as regular issues. However, you have shorter time than usual (eight weeks) for preparation of your responses to inquiries.

(3) Submission deadline is March 31, 2022 April 8, 2022. *Deadline extended

(4) The special issue will be published on the J-Stage website in January, 2023. Preprint will be published on the IPSJ Journal in January, 2023.
