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 “Understanding, Technology, and Application of Interaction”.
 Recent improvement of computational capabilities and development of sensor and actuator have been providing various gateways to information media. Under the circumstances, researches on theory, design, modeling, engineering, application and evaluation of interaction among people, between human and things, and human and surroundings, are playing significant roles. Not only human interface in computer science, research on interaction has been expanding its research fields rapidly to involve related activities. In order to cover its wide extent and respond demands on diversities of its application, the editors are expecting submissions of research outcome on interaction from fundamental study to practical implementation. A manuscript must explicitly describe its contributions to the interaction community. Editorial committee will select a couple of accepted papers that had not been presented in Japanese symposium and/or workshop, and will give an opportunity to present their work at the Interaction Symposium 2021.

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.
