|Internet Conference 2016 (IC2016) will be at Tokyo.||(2016/5/26)|
Internet in Japan has started in the academic side; in the era when the Internet technologies are not prevalent in Japanese industry, the academic conference for Internet technologies, i.e., Internet Conference (IC), had some special role to serve as the only venue to learn about Internet and its technologies. However, as time passes by, nowadays the Internet technologies are not uncommon in industry. As such, the role expected for IC is changing today.
We, the program committee chairs of IC2016, believe that an academic conference should serve as a venue to present cutting edge technologies and deepest investigations of the topic of interests through the strict process of the program development. But we also have been worried that, especially in Japan, there are only few venues (if not none) which offer decent paper review with competitive paper selection. Rather, a conference in Japan (typically become domestic one, conducted in Japanese) tends to pursue more openness, friendliness, and eventually falling to an entrylevel conference, which has sadly only few impacts and visibility to the world. IC does not seem to be the exception.
In IC2016, we will try to improve this situation by devoting more effort to program development and hopefully offer the highest quality of reviewsto all of authors by highlytalented technical program committee (TPC) members, who will promote fruitful discussions through the academic conference. TPC members are listed below.
We set the following requirements for each submission this time, in addition to the regular submission instruction:
Papers written in either the Japanese or English language will be considered for acceptance in the conference proceedings. Full papers should be more than 6 pages long, but should not exceed 14 pages of A4, including references.
Papers submitted to IC2016 must not be published anywhere in the past, nor be under the consideration for acceptance/publish elsewhere, in any language. A paper submitted should have at least 30 % of novel contents. If the paper holds in its parts the same or similar contents with another paper, the authors must explicitly mention it in the paper, possibly by adding the reference to the other paper. Upon a questionable evidence of not obeying these rules, the case will be discussed and judged by the TPC members. The paper’s contents are considered to stay confidential, both during the review process and after the rejection or withdrawal.
In order for a paper to be selected in publication in IC 2016, at least one author must attend the conference and give the presentation.
IC2016 will select the best paper and the best presentation award among the accepted papers. In addition, a few best student papers may be selected.
More detailed instruction is available.
