The development of information network systems enables us to communicate with people in remote places "anytime and anywhere", enriching human knowledge, affection and sensibility. However, there are various barriers which stand in our way to using these systems freely and flexibly. In order to discuss how to overcome these barriers and create a more human-centered communication environment, in 2007 the first International Symposium on Universal Communication was held in Kyoto, Japan featuring discussions with well-known researchers from around the world. Following its success, the second International Symposium on Universal Communication will be held in Osaka, Japan.
