			Call for Participation

3rd International Universal Communication Symposium (IUCS 2009)

	         	http://www.i-uc-s.org/2009/

  		 	    December 3 - 4, 2009

National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, Tokyo, Japan

In today's world, Information and Communication Technology
infrastructure capable of distributing massive amounts of information
anytime, anywhere is becoming more abundant. However, from the
viewpoint of the potential to exchange "any kind of information with
anyone" as we like, we have come to recognize various barriers such
as those of language, mistrust and distance. In order to discuss
how to overcome these barriers and create a more human-centered
communication environment, we have held two International Symposia
in Kyoto and Osaka in 2007 and 2008 respectively, under the basic
concept of "Universal Communication". This year, we will have the
3rd International Universal Communication Symposium (IUCS 2009) in
Tokyo, Japan, aiming to further promote productive discussion and
research exchange.
