It is our honor and pleasure to invite you to the Keio University 21st Century COE (Center of Excellence) Program Workshop entitled "Collaborate! In search for Intelligent Social Infrastructure." This workshop will be held on January 28, 2005 at Keio University's Mita Campus located in central Tokyo.
The 21st Century COE program started in 2002 and is sponsored by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. The aim of our COE program is to create cutting-edge interactive media technologies and is to apply them to solve eminent social issues in the forthcoming societies.
This workshop to be held on January 28 is aimed particularly at offering an opportunity for our junior (doctoral student level) researchers to present their collaboration research projects and to exchange opinions among themselves and with fellow guest researchers invited from all over the world. The major characteristic of our COE program stresses a merge among internet technologies, media design and social applications, and these collaboration research projects are to be a realization of the characteristic. In addition to junior researchers, we will be inviting experts and senior researchers from Japan and other countries, for presentations and discussions.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend this workshop. We look forward to meeting you at the workshop on January 28.
