New Policy on Copyright of SSS Proceedings:

Beginning with the SSS'14, SSS Proceedings are now available at the on-line electronic journal cite J-Stage (Japan Science and Technology Information Aggregator, Electronic). With the author's agreement, the papers in Proceedings will be registerd to DOI (Digital Object Identifier) system and opened to the public on the web.
According to this system, the papers in Proceedings will be officially published works with the copyright, and we need Copyright Transfer from all of the authors who submit their papers. Also, each paper should be the original work of the author(s) and not yet published in any media with the copyright.


The young researchers who recognized excellent presentation at this symposium will be presented to SSS Young Author Prize or ISCIE award. For SSS Young Author Prize, the presenter must be less than 35 years of age at the time of symposium. For ISCIE award, the presenter must be a member of ISCIE and must be less than 30 years of age if the affiliation of the presenter is an academic or 35 years of age if the affiliation of the presenter is not an academic, at the time of symposium.
