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)
On Nov 14, we are offering pre-conference tours at Toyohashi Tech and sites related to the subjects of the conference.

This morning at 05:45 CEST, the earth trembled beneath the Okhotsk Sea in the Pacific Northwest. The quake, with a magnitude of 8.2, took place at an exceptional depth of 605 kilometers.
Because of the great depth of the earthquake a tsunami is not expected and there should also be no major damage due to shaking.
Professor Frederik Tilmann of the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences: "The epicenter is exceptionally deep, far below the earth's crust in the mantle. Such strong ...
The Ring Nebula's distinctive shape makes it a popular illustration for astronomy books. But new observations by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope of the glowing gas shroud around an old, dying, sun-like star reveal a new twist.
"The nebula is not like a bagel, but rather, it's like a jelly doughnut, because it's filled with material in the middle," said C. Robert O'Dell of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
He leads a research team that used Hubble and several ground-based telescopes to obtain the best view yet of ...
New indicator molecules visualise the activation of auto-aggressive T cells in the body as never before
Biological processes are generally based on events at the molecular and cellular level. To understand what happens in the course of infections, diseases or normal bodily functions, scientists would need to examine individual cells and their activity directly in the tissue.

A fried breakfast food popular in Spain provided the inspiration for the development of doughnut-shaped droplets that may provide scientists with a new approach for studying fundamental issues in physics, mathematics and materials.
The doughnut-shaped droplets, a shape known as toroidal, are formed from two dissimilar liquids using a simple rotating stage and an injection needle. About a millimeter in overall size, the droplets are produced individually, their shapes maintained by a surrounding springy material made of polymers.
Droplets in this toroidal shape made ...
