Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is pleased to announce the call for papers for a special issue of "Mobile Communication and Intelligent Transportation Systems Building the Sophisticated Society".
Many researches of intelligent transportation systems and mobile communication technology have been carried out to realize the more sophisticated society because advanced intelligent information can be obtained through various types of information technology equipment. For examples, various kinds of researches for ITS have been proposed: information collection and exchange methods using radio communication devices such as DSRC, IEEE 802.11p etc., and context aware systems for pedestrians and geographic information systems based on short-range radio communication devices. In the area of mobile communication, many researches have been also discussed: broadband wireless communication devices such as LTE and WiMAX2+, developments of ad-hoc networks and sensor networks. These research and development areas are about to be more important to build the sophisticated society. In the special issue of "Mobile Communication and Intelligent Transportation Systems Building the Sophisticated 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, LTE, WiMAX2+, 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

Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is currently encouraging more submissions from outside of Japan.
Any papers electronically submitted to JIP before July 31, 2015 are free of publication charge when accepted.
