Original papers are solicited that have not been presented previously and that describe new contributions in the area suggested in the SCOPE. Each author is requested to prepare a 4-page camera-ready paper written in English, including all texts, references, figures and photographs. The authors are requested to refer to the ISAP2007 Web page for the detailed paper preparation instructions and the IEICE Copyright Transfer Form.



Authors are requested to send their papers in Adobe AcrobatR *.PDF format by electronic method. Detailed instructions of the electronic Web-based paper submission will be provided on the ISAP2007 Web page.



Young Scientist Travel Grant (YSTG) will be provided by ISAP2007 to several young overseas speakers who need financial support to present their papers. The YSTG application form can be downloaded from the ISAP2007 Web site.



By taking this opportunity, in the IEICE Transactions on Communications, the Special Section on ISAP2007 has been planed to publish articles which are limited to the papers presented at oral or poster sessions in the symposium. The deadline for submission is Oct. 15, 2007. The special section will be published in June, 2008.
