3rd International Universal Communication Symposium (IUCS 2009)
				December 3 - 4, 2009

National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, Tokyo, Japan

In today’s world, ICT 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
these barriers and create a more human-centered communication
we have held two International Symposia in Kyoto and Osaka in 2007 and
respectively, under the basic concept of “Universal
Communication”. This year,
we will have the 3rd International Universal Communication Symposium
2009) in Tokyo, Japan, aiming to further promote productive discussion
research exchange.
