Aims and Scope


The KIPS Transactions on Computer and Communication Systems (KIPS Tr. Comp. and Comm. Sys.) is an official journal of the Korea Information Processing Society (KIPS). It is committed to publishing high-quality papers on the state-of-the-art of computer and communication system research. Theoretical research presenting new techniques, concepts, or analyses, and application contributions describing experiences and experiments with working systems are published. The topics covered by the journal include, but are not limited to:

- Computer Systems & Theory: computer systems and practices, computer education, computer architecture, real-time systems, embedded systems, operating systems, real-time operating systems, compiler, programming language, computing theory, algorithms, VLSI systems, computer-aided design, computer-aided design algorithm, computer-aided manufacture, performance evaluation

- Parallel & Distributed Computing: parallel & distributed computing systems and practices, parallel/distributed computing architecture and algorithms, parallel/distributed computing and tools, grid computing, cloud computing, utility computing, cluster computing, network and interprocessor communication, multicore processor, heterogeneous computing, fault-tolerance systems

- Mobile Computing & Communication Systems: communication systems and practices, communication theory, computer networks, wireless/mobile communication networks, ubiquitous sensor networks, RFID systems, communication and networks services, network operations and management, network architecture, broadband networks

- Internet of Things: algorithmic paradigms, models and analysis of ubiquitous computing systems, mobile computing systems and services, positioning and tracking technologies, context-aware computing, location-based services, smart spaces and intelligent environments

- Information Security: information security and practices, system security, network security, dependable systems, privacy security, tools for secure information, methods for development and assessment of trustworthy systems, analysis of vulnerabilities and attacks, secure operating systems and applications, security issues in wireless networks, and cryptology
