Organised by the Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS) at Toyohashi University of Technology, The Irago Conference aims to enhance mutual understanding between scientists, engineers, policy makers, and experts from a wide spectrum of pure and applied sciences in order to resolve major global issues.
The Irago Conference is delighted to welcome a whole range of speakers promising discussion and debate on topics ranging from energy and natural resources to public health and disaster prevention.
Selected speakers and topics include:
Yasuaki P. Kohama: "Future sustainable energy system" (New Industry Creation Hatchery Center, Tohoku University, Japan)
Daniel E. Morse: “Biologically inspired, nano-structured materials for energy and photonics” (University of California, Santa Barbara, USA)
Masayuki Kawamoto: "Sustainable Mobility Society with Demand side Energy Management" (Toyota Motor Corporation, Japan)
Sakae Tanaka: "Future prospect 2012-2025 -How will the World and our business change in future" (AQUABIT Corporation, Japan)
Keiji Aoki : “"A Development of fully automated truck platoon system with closed gap distance" (Japan Automobile Research Institute, Japan)
Yoshitsugu Hayashi: “Energy Minimum Mobile Society“ (Nagoya University, Japan)
The Graduate Student Session
The Irago Conference Graduate Student Session offers a platform for graduate students to describe their latest findings as oral presentations. The session-which is being organized by doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers is scheduled for lunchtime on Thursday 15 November 2012.
Talks during this Graduate Student Session will consist of 10 minute presentations followed by 4 minutes for discussion. At the end of the talks the audience will vote and select one of the speakers for the ‘Best Student Presentation Award’.
Now, remember to indicate whether you would like to make your presentation at this session in the abstract submission procedure. Refer to the ‘submission of abstracts’ page of the conference website: http://www.apirc.jp/abst-submission.html (direct link below)

Researchers from Brown University and the University of Hawaii have found some mineralogical surprises in the Moon's largest impact crater.
Data from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper that flew aboard India's Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter shows a diverse mineralogy in the subsurface of the giant South Pole Aitken basin.
The differing mineral signatures could be reflective of the minerals dredged up at the time of the giant impact 4 billion years ago, ...
In power electronics systems bonded connections create the central electrical connections between adjoining surfaces.
The quality of these bonded connections is one of the main factors that determines the reliability and availability of drive systems in electric vehicles, and hence constitutes a major design challenge for German auto manufacturers aiming to electrify their vehicles.
