Brief Bio
Dr. Yasushi Kambayashi is an associate professor in the Department of Computer and Information Engineering from the Nippon Institute of Technology. He worked at Mitsubishi Research Institute as a staff researcher before joining the Institute. His research interests include theory of computation, theory and practice of programming languages, and political science. He received his PhD in Engineering from the University of Toledo, his MS in Computer Science from the University of Washington, and his BA in Law from Keio University. He is a committee member of the Japan Information-Technology Engineers Examination, a Fellow of IARIA, a committee member and the industry research chair of IARIA International Multi-Conference on Computing in the Global Information Technology and IARIA International Conference on Advances in P2P Systems, a committee member of Asia Pacific Symposium on Intelligent and Evolutionary Systems, an editorial board member of International Journal on Advances in Internet Technology, a review committee member of Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications, and a member of ACM, IEEE Computer Society, Tau Beta Pi, IPSJ, JSSST, IEICE System Society, IADIS, and Japan Flutist Association.

SCOPE

Today, we are witnessing the advent of ubiquitous computing. Computers are not special machines, they are common apparatus. We are using computers without any special attention. Therefore computational technologies should become human centric; multi-agent systems are not exception. Human centric applications should be one of the mainstreams of multi-agent technologies. In this session, we would like to meet with various background research scientists as well as industry specialists to discuss how we can make various agent technologies, support the welfare of humanity. Through this session, we would like to foster any inspirations for designing and developing novel computational applications based on agent technologies as well as communication technologies such as Content-Centric Network technology to support human beings. 

Topics: 
- Novel communication systems 
- Design, implementation and evaluation of agent base human computer interactions 
- Software visualization for multi-agents 
- Content-Centric Network 
- Bio-inspired algorithms and applications 
- Agent and multi-agent systems for communication 
- Crowd-sourcing and sensor networks 
- Artificial intelligence for supporting humans 
- Intelligent health care systems 
- Intelligent apparatus for disabled people 
- Virtual reality and augmented reality systems 
- Any other kinds of agent based human supportive technologies
