Digital Human Workshop 2007

Digital human research center is annually holding workshop aiming to disseminate the concept and brand new results of the "Digital Human Research." This year is the last fiscal year of JST CREST Project "Research on Digital Human Technologies" that has proceeded since 2001. The workshop presents not only the state of the art of the digital human research but also a new direction of the digital human research.

The theme of this year is "Everyday Life Computing with Digital Human", focusing on how useful digital human technologies are for improving and enhancing our quality of lives. We invited three speakers from overseas. We also hold Open House of the research center to have a chance for presenting demonstrations and discussing much more substantially with participants.
