The Information Processing Society of Japan ("IPSJ") is a Japan-based international learned society for computing. Founded in 1960, it is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and can be said to be roughly equivalent to the Association for Computing Machinery. IPSJ publishes a magazine and several professional journals, and sponsors conferences and workshops. It has nearly 20,000 members. IPSJ is a full member of the International Federation for Information Processing.[1] The current president is Masaru Kitsuregawa, appointed in 2013.[2]


IPSJ publishes one magazine, several journals, and several peer-reviewed transactions. Most of these publications primarily carry articles and peer-reviewed papers in Japanese, but accept articles in English, especially for transactions special issues. Some of the transactions accept articles only in English.
