Call For Papers

[Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies]

Please don't miss the submission deadline (October 30) of IEEE MIPR 2021! The conference will be held as a physical conference (not virtual) in Tokyo. The conference dates might be postponed to early September after the Olympics Games 2020 according to the COVID-19 situation. The organizing committee is working on re-scheduling the most appropriate dates that will be announced as soon as possible.

Please notice that the deadline will not be postponed, and the conference proceedings will be published as original schedules. The purpose is trying to keep the accepted papers in their latest status and to maximize their values.
