Meeting Description:

2nd International Symposium on Universal Communication
Dec 15 - 16, 2008
Osaka International Convention Center, Osaka, Japan

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 (ISUC 2008) will be held at
the Osaka International Convention Center, 5-3-51, Nakanoshima Kita-ku, Osaka
530-0005 Japan on December 15-16, 2008.
