"General Incorporated Association, the Imaging Society of Japan" (ISJ) is an organization of engineers and researchers who strive for progress and growth of the imaging technology through exchange of information concerning basis and application of image.
The Imaging Society of Japan offers various opportunities for studying and exchanging information in the fields of the imaging science and the relevant technologies.
In 1958, the Society of Electrophotography of Japan, the predecessor of ISJ was founded. Since then, ISJ has contributed to the progress in fundamental studies on imaging science as well as practical technologies such as imaging materials/devices, printing processes and image processing concerning to the electrophotograpy and other hardcopying processes.
In 1988, the society was renamed the "Imaging Society of Japan" to commemorate the 40th anniversary of its founding and positively extended the research fields to cover the digital imaging field including electronic imaging.
In 2008, the society celebrated the 50th anniversary and published the "Digital printing technologies" in four volumes as a commemorative event.
In 2010, the society applied registration of incorporation and was reborn as the "General Incorporated Association, the Imaging Society of Japan".
At present, the number of members is approximately 1,000. ISJ continues to support future progress in imaging technology aiming to create fulfilling life scenes with imaging.
