Digital Human Symposium 2011

Established in 2001, the Digital Human Research Center has continued the research on building mechano-dynamical, physio-anatomical and psycho-cognitive model of humans. And, we were renewed in April, 2010. The new Digital Human Research Center (DHRC) is challenging to expand the human models to functional models of humans and lives including time, space and communication.

This year, we hold a symposium focused on "Health and Daily-living". In the syposium, three invited speakers and five young researchers in DHRC are ready to give talks about their latest research activities in this field.

In addition, all research activities of DHRC will be presented in the open house style demonstrations by all staff at AIST Waterfront, Odaiba. We look forward to exchanging hot discussions and to hearing live comments.
