Date and Time

September 21, 2012

Venue

Okuma Memorial Tower, Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan

Abstract

The diversification of communication methods and improvement of the internet’s infrastructure has led to globalization. On the one hand this has made our lives more convenient and improved the quality of politics and economics, but it has also added cyber security threats to our national security concerns. The high-speed information network has also affected behavioral patterns within educational and industrial communities, since cloud-computing and global access to databases has required new educational research methodologies and corporate strategies. William E Kirwan, Chancellor of the University of Maryland System, and Kaoru Yano, Chairman of the Board of NEC Corporation, will lead a panel discussion on the future of advanced information societies as it affects education and industries in the U.S. and Japan.
