Official conference site.
English is our official language of communication. Asian languages (e.g. Japanese,
Korean and Chinese) may be available as a LIMITED assisting service of web announcement
and E-mail correspondence. In case of any conflicts, English communication should be
considered official.
Organized session proposal.
Interested organizers should prepare the following information and submit online.
Alternatively, our Program Co-chairs (Special Organized Sessions) may contact and
ask you to consider organizing some session(s) — to assure broad participation from
related subjects and fields.
1. Session title.
2. Organizer(s) (name, affiliation and E-mail address).
3. List of at least three (3) papers (tentative titles and their authors).
4. Presentation mode: oral or poster.
Full paper.
Authors are invited to prepare full papers of four (4) to six (6) pages (maybe
extended up to eight (8) pages but subject to an additional fee) in IEEE style
including results, figures, and references. All full papers should be submitted
online. Full papers will be rigorously and competitively peer reviewed. All accepted
full papers will be published in the conference proceedings and archived in IEEE Xplore.
Paper awards will be prized to outstanding full papers. In addition, revised and
extended versions of selected papers will be invited to post-conference publication
such as books and special issues of quality journals. For the readability assurance,
English proofread service by qualified editors will be available upon requests from
the authors. Full papers may be asked to reduce their length to be short papers
when necessary.
Short paper.
Authors are invited to prepare short papers of two (2) to four (4) pages in IEEE
style including results, figures, and references. All short papers should be
submitted online. Short papers will be peer reviewed in a comprehensive manner.
All accepted short papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
English proofread service (full papers only).
Full papers may be proofread by qualified editors, upon requests from the authors.
This proofread is NOT a part of the peer review, thus is NEVER used for or against
the acceptance decision making. The results will be returned electrically together
with the peer review reports. Authors are responsible to (or not to) reflect the
results together with suggestions from peer reviewers. In case of conflicts, authors
should consider comments from reviewers more so than those from editors. When too
many requests are placed, only selected papers will be proofread.
All accepted papers (full and short) will be invited to the conference presentations.
Authors may request their preference from the following:
*Oral on-site presentation (available for full papers only).
*Oral teleconference presentation (available for full papers only).
*Poster presentation (available for both full and short papers).
All authors in an organized session should request the same option in consultation
with the organizer(s). While the program committee will try their best to respect
all the requests, please be aware that not all can necessarily be accommodated due to
various constraints for the conference program development. Presentation awards will
be prized to outstanding presentations.

About the venue.
SCIS-ISIS2012 will be held in Kobe, Japan, well known as the exotic, cosmopolitan
port city. The city is surrounded by a rich set of cultures and natures — Kobe beef,
Kobe sweets, classy foreign residences in Kitano area, Arima hot spring, and Mt. Rokko
to list a few — while maintaining their economical and technological significance
such as headquarters of over 100 international corporations and the world’s fastest
supercomputer (‘Kei’). Well-situated in the heart of Kansai, many historically and
culturally attractive sites, including Kyoto and Osaka, are within its proximity and
easily accessible with our efficient transportation. With so many things to see and do
in the city and surrounding area, it is the ideal location for a few extra days of
pre- or post-conference recreation. Lastly but not the least, Kobe is safe and cozy
— far from the most recent catastrophe if this is your concern. In fact, this is the
best place for all prayers to be united — as the role model of remarkable recovery
from the previous one. (Ref. approx. distance from Kobe: 30km to Osaka, 80km to Kyoto
and to Nara.)
