Editing/publishing the ITE journal
An editing committee of over 150 persons plans the journal, judges submitted papers, complies overseas Webzine contributions, and selects news articles for inclusion. The result is a monthly journal of approximately 150 pages that is prepared and distributed to all organization members.
Journal contents, Webzine contributions, and data from news topics are also made available on our website. The journal features the following:
- ¡¦High-quality technical papers
- ¡¦Technical information selected and edited by specialists
- ¡¦Thoroughly-studied expositions on monthly technical topics
Image information-related study/research activities
The separate committees that make up our Technical Committee carry out a number of survey and research activities. The Research Group, under the aegis of the Research Committee, holds public meetings to encourage active participation in debates and discussions. These meetings enable experts and novices alike to discuss the newest research and technical developments in a free and open manner. Fields handled by our committees, procedures for filing announcements and so forth are made available in our journal or on HP. More than 80 Research Group meetings are held annually, with over 800 research papers presented. To ensure thorough exploration of new technical areas, periodic meetings of the Research Group and Specialist Research Group are held so that the latest technical areas can be discussed. Material for release is published in the "ITE Technical Report" and is made available for a fee.
