Reasons for joining
ITE activities are geared toward enhancing and disseminating the advancement of science and technology related to image information media. It goes without saying that image information is a core medium today and that image-related equipment, systems, and methods cover a broad spectrum in the areas of science and learning. In recent years activity in this field has been expanding still more. One feature of ITE is the wide variety of members it has, including specialists in science and technology fields from universities and research bodies, personnel engaged in development activities in broadcast organizations and manufacturers, field personnel responsible for engineering work, and persons involved in content creation. With ITE being an organization of specialists, its members work together to make beneficial contributions to society. We encourage younger members of the scientific community to join us and contribute their knowledge and skills in participating in activities in these inter-related fields.
Joining ITE gives its members opportunities to participate in seminars, meetings, lecture conferences, research groups, and activities related to the distribution of our journal. This enables them to take part in brainstorming activities for creating useful information, and to contribute to discussions and releases relevant to this topic. We firmly believe that this enables them to make even greater contributions to the development of related scientific fields.
What sort of persons do we encourage to become ITE members?
Persons who wish to enhance their technical skills, have their technical work evaluated properly, obtain better-quality information, become researchers of note, engage in high-level discussions, or expand their network of personal contacts.
