Call for papers
The IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems announces that it will publish a special section entitled "Special Section on Log Data Usage Technology and Office Information Systems" in September 2019. This special section aims to further practical information systems that can leverage various log data, regarding the so-called Big Data era. In this era, many types of logs are stored on an everyday basis, and it is greatly boosted by IoT (Internet of Things) devices and products. Examples of those logs include customer purchase history, medication logs, and articles posted on SNS (Social Network Service) stored in daily life. Leveraging such log data can be considered a key research topic towards a better information society. We welcome submissions of research papers on a wide variety of techniques (e.g., log-data processing, data sharing, and anonymization) not only for office information systems, but also for any practical log-based applications. Submission deadline of the manuscript is November 1st, 2018 (JST).
- Lifelog (Log processing, Data analysis, Application software, etc.)
- Office model (Business process modeling, Business process re-engineering (BPR), Information sharing, XML, Document structure, Document processing, Workflow, etc.)
