JTEC WORKSHOP ON HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERACTION TECHNOLOGIES
July 7, 1995
Washington, DC

Sponsored by: the National Science Foundation, the Advanced
Research Projects Agency, the Department of Commerce, and the
Office of Naval Research of the United States Government.

Conducted under a Cooperative Agreement between the National
Science Foundation and Loyola College in Maryland

 Japanese Technology Evaluation Center

Dear Colleague:

You are invited to the Japanese Technology Evaluation Center
(JTEC) Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Technology in
Japan, to be held July 7, 1995 at the Dupont Plaza Hotel, 1500
New Hampshire Ave., N.W., Washington, DC (Dupont Circle Metro),
beginning at 9:00 AM (coffee and pastries at 8:30).

The study's sponsors at the National Science Foundation, the
Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Department of Commerce,
and the Office of Naval Research asked JTEC's panel of experts to
assess the status of human-computer interaction technologies in
Japan in comparison to that in the United States. The panel has
recently completed site visits in Japan. The panel found that
Japan is targeting multi-media computer applications markets and
teleconferencing technologies. A very large number of Japanese
researchers are working on speech recognition and synthesis,
natural language processing, and machine translation. The panel
saw very good work being done at several Japanese government-
supported consortia (e.g., ATR International, Graphics
Communications Labs, Digital Vision Lab). The panel observed a
strong industrial research infrastructure, with an emphasis on
product-related research. HCI research at Japanese universities
lags that in the U.S., as is the case with the development of
Japan's "information superhighway" infrastructure (e.g., cable
connections, use of PCs, etc.).

Topics to be covered at the July 7 workshop include

o access to computers for people with disabilities
o fundamental HCI research
o telecommunications and networking
o manufacturing, process control, telerobotics,
 and transportation applications
o consumer devices, games, and entertainment

A draft agenda for the workshop is included below, along with a
list of panelists and the sites they visited in Japan. To
reserve a seat, please via FAX (410-617-5123) or email
(cmfloyola.edu on Internet), including your full name, address,
and phone number. You may also register electronically over the
Word Wide Web:

A $25 registration fee will cover lunch, presentation materials,
and a copy of the final report. See below* for information on
receiving workshop viewgraphs and the final report if you cannot
attend the workshop. If you need a hotel booking for July 6,
call the Dupont Plaza Hotel at 800-841-0003 (or 202-483-6000) and
mention JTEC. I hope to see you at the workshop.

 Sincerely,

 Michael J. DeHaemer, Ph.D.
