 Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is pleased to announce the call for papers for a special issue of “Applications and the Internet” in Conjunction with Main Topics of COMPSAC 2019.
 The Annual International Computer Software & Applications Conference (COMPSAC), sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and also technically sponsored by Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ), is one of the premium international forums for academia, industry, and government to discuss research results, advancements and future trends in computer and software technologies and applications. Among a wide range of topics covered by COMPSAC, several symposia cover a broad range of networking and computing technologies as well as advanced applications and services. COMPSAC 2019 is held in Milwaukee, USA, on July 15-19, 2019. By taking this opportunity, the Special Issue of Applications and the Internet in Conjunction with Main Topics of COMPSAC 2019 has been planned to publish articles which are based on the papers presented mainly in the COMPSAC 2019. Your contribution to this special issue would be greatly appreciated.

Journal of Information Processing (JIP) is currently encouraging more submissions from outside of Japan.
