Japanese Industrial Standard. The name of the standards established by JISC (JIS Committee). Also the name of the encoding method used for JIS X 0208-1990 and JISX 0212-1990 character set standards. Ethiopic encoding under JIS has been applied for World Wide Web.

Joint Information System. Integrates incident information and public affairs into a cohesive organization designed to provide consistent, coordinated, timely information during crisis or incident operations. The mission of the JIS is to provide a structure and system for developing and delivering coordinated interagency messages; developing, recommending, and executing public information plans and strategies on behalf of the Incident Commander; advising the Incident Commander concerning public affairs issues that could affect a response effort; and controlling rumors and inaccurate information that could undermine public confidence in the emergency response effort.
A Japanese industry standard code for presenting the Japanese character set Kanji on computers. JIS defines special ranges of user-defined characters. Only the most popular ones are included. The newer Shift JIS standard sets aside certain character codes to signal the start of a two-character sequence. Together, these define a single Kanji metacharacter. There are many oddities to be found in handling Kanji over the network. Sending JIS-encoded messages through the Internet is done using a 7-bit code, called "OLD JIS" (standardized on JUNET). Unfortunately, it incorporates the ESC character, which some systems will filter out. This problem can be overcome by using UUENCODing. operates two Japanese language mailing lists: KIDLEADER-JAPANESE (for teachers and coordinators), and KIDCAFE-JAPANESE (for children only). See their " How to send and receive Kanji text" help file. See http://www.sla.purdue.edu/academic/fll/JapanProj/Je-mail/ for more about sending and receiving electronic mail in Japanese.
