Founded in April 1960, the IPSJ, Information Processing Society of Japan, has been a leading authority in technical areas of information processing and computer science for professionals and students. IPSJ will provide leadership for sound evolution of the computer science and technology in an increasingly computerized society and will contribute to creation of new ideas to cope with the accountability for evolving information technology. Through its authoritative publications, conferences, and other activities, the IPSJ will play a critical role in the world for the global prosperity.

To commemorate their 60th anniversary, the IEEE Computer Society sent a congratulatory letter and a plaque to the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ).



Leila De Floriani, IEEE Computer Society 2020 President, congratulated IPSJ on behalf of the IEEE Computer Society, with the following letter:


Dear Dr. Ernura,

On behalf of the IEEE Computer Society (CS), Im deeply honored to send you a commemorative plaque in recognition of the 60th anniversary of the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ). During its’60 year history, IPSJ and its members have contributed to the advancement of the computing profession and developed leaders in our field.

The IEEE CS and IPSJ have had a long-standing, collegial relationship. Our societies have collaborated on membership activities and joint activities like technical conferences, including the successful 2018 COMPSAC conference held in Tokyo. Our leaders have been engaged in mutually beneficial information exchanges. There is a tradition of Computer Society presidents speaking at the annual IPSJ conference and IPSJ representatives speaking at our Board of Governors meeting. In recent years, IPSJ and the IEEE CS established the Young Computer Researcher Award, to honor young researchers for their outstanding achievements.

On this special milestone anniversary, the IEEE CS congratulates IPSJ for its history of contributions to computing, and looks forward to continuing our partnership with IPSJ in the years to come.

Best regards,

Leila De Floriani


Additionally, President Katsumi Emura and the Information Processing Society of Japan, received a congratulatory plaque for 60 years of historical accomplishments and advancements in computing from the IEEE Computer Society.



We are thrilled to be a part of this milestone and look forward to a continued, successful relationship.
