The IEICE used to deal with copyrights individually. To remedy this situation, it adopted "Provisions on Copyright", which became effective on April 1, 2003. The Provisions will apply to papers submitted to General Conferences. Papers to General Conferences are accepted on condition that the authors agree to the transfer of the copyright of their paper to the IEICE. If a submitted paper is not accepted, the copyright to that paper is returned to the authors. However, any hard copy submitted is not returned.
The link to the "Provisions on Copyright" is shown below. Please read it before you submit your paper.
Although Article 4 and Article 1 (Explanation of terms) in the Provisions on Copyright state that a "Copyright transfer form" and an "Application form for permission to use the copyrighted material" are accepted only as hard copy, this provision is replaced by the clicking of the "I agree to the transfer of copyright" button in General Conferences. However, if you submit your paper as a hard copy, the submission of a hard copy of your "Copyright transfer form" is required.
