IPSJ Transactions on Advanced Computing Systems
Computer systems are now found in all aspects of our lives,
functioning as high performance computers, data center servers,
cellular phones, handheld games, and appliances. Fundamental computer
system technologies in these fields have been conceived and developed
separately;, e.g, high performance and dependability in the high
performance computing field, and low power and real-time in the
embedded systems field. According to the evolution of device
technologies and various user demands, technologies that were
originally developed in specific fields are gaining importance in
other fields. In embedded systems, such as cellular phones and
handheld games, for instance, high performance technologies are
required to achieve high quality, while embedded technologies and low
power consumption are leveraged to realize a massively parallel
computer. Moreover, newly emerging fundamental technologies, such as
reconfigurable architectures and grid computing, are being carefully
considered in various fields.
The IPSJ Transactions on Advanced Computing Systems (ACS) focuses on
those advanced fundamental system technologies that can be characterized
as technologies for high performance, embedded systems, low power consumption,
reconfigurability, and grid systems,
as well as supporting technologies such as
numerical and nonnumerical algorithms, system performance evaluation,
operating systems, programming languages, compilers, and architectures.
We hope that this transactions contributes to hand leads the advanced
computing system technologies that are in demand by industry.
The IPSJ Transactions on Advanced Computing Systems is supported by
SIG High Performance Computing (HPC),
SIG Computer Architecture (ARC),
and SIG System Software and Operating System (OS),
and with the cooperation of SIG Programming.

This transactions has two paper categories: research and survey papers.
The former encompasses not only proposals of new ideas and/or
technologies but also case studies of existing systems and benchmark
Papers submitted in any category are reviewed
by the Editorial Board and external reviewers,
and will be published if judged by the Editorial Board to be acceptable.
The review process of this transactions follows
"The Review Rules of IPSJ Trans. ACS",
which are based on the rules for the IPSJ Journal, but include
the following additional rules to create new trends and
values in this transactions.
- In order to provide a report on the latest technological revolutions,
original proposals or idea papers are accepted
if the practical values are contained in the paper.
- Papers reporting fair results of practical research and
development in computer systems, fundamental technologies, and
applications are accepted if they appropriately claim its originality,
novelty, and/or superiority.
- Survey papers that collect, categorize, and evaluate existing
technologies according to the author's novel viewpoint may contribute
to society. Such original survey papers are considered accepted
- A case study of practical systems is an important report in the
sense that the report bridges the gap between the computer scientists and users.
Such a report is considered as an accepted paper.
- Editorial board members follow
the rules of justice.
- CFP, including publication months and submission deadlines,
is announced quarterly in this web page.
For more information, please see the
"Future publication schedule" section.
- Manuscripts must be submitted in PDF format
through the online submission system.
Upon submission of your manuscripts, Journal of Information Processing (JIP): Information for Authors should be reffered, and shall be followed except for the following points.
- All accepted manuscripts must be formatted using the LaTeX system
with the IPSJ journal format (in Japanese), and also using the same format is recommended for the submitted manuscripts.
The author(s) is/are responsible for preparing the formatted version.
Please note that the submitted manuscripts need to be formatted without
draft option in the documentclass declaration.
- The paper must be written in either English or Japanese. Papers
written in Japanese must have both Japanese and English abstracts.
- Manuscripts may contain cover letters if necessary. Manuscripts and cover letters shall be clearly separated, and only manuscripts are reviewed.
- No length limitation is imposed, but the length of the paper must
be reasonable. Unnecessary redundancy will be grounds for rejection,
and reduced paper length will be a condition of acceptance.
- The review process follows the IPSJ journal rules. Notification
of acceptance is sent by email. If the paper is conditionally
accepted, the author(s) must reply the reviewer comments and make
improvements to the paper within three weeks. If this work is not
completed before the deadline, the paper will be automatically
- If a manuscript is "conditionally accepted", the author(s) should
prepare a supplementary report to provide responses to the reviewer
- All research and survey papers are reviewed, and only accepted
papers are published. After receiving notification of acceptance,
author(s) must prepare the camera ready file versions formatted in the
LaTeX system with the IPSJ journal
format. The LaTeX files must be sent to IPSJ. The author(s) may
proofread the manuscript once before publication.
- After the ACS issue including an accepted paper written in English
has been published, the paper is automatically included in IPSJ's
on-line journal, called
IPSJ Online Transactions.
After ACS issue 49, an accepted paper written in English is published
in JIP (Journal of Information Processing) and included in the ACS issue.
- Author(s) must pay publication fee after the accepted paper is published.
The price (in Nov. 2011) is as follows.
| ||English paper:||12,180 yen/page|
|Japanese paper:||13,650 yen/page|
- Authors of a submitted paper may not be required IPSJ members. The
Transactions welcomes and encourages the submission from outside of IPSJ.
ACS is a quarterly transactions published.
