The 1st COINS International Symposium was held on Friday, February 27 at Ito Hall, Ito International Research Center, under the theme of "Innovation and Social Implementation for Smart Health." There were two oral sessions (Session 1 "Innovative System for Detection, Diagnosis and treatment" and Session 2 "Social Implementation for Smart Health"), a poster session (Session 3) and panel discussion (Session 4). During the two oral sessions, four speakers from each session gave stimulating and motivational talks and raised challenges, and opinions were lively exchanged.
For the poster session, there were 21 research presentations primarily given by the younger scientists, as well as an introduction of iCONM, which newly opened in April. The audience present took a deep interest in the session.
The Panel discussion was held by RL Prof. Kazunori Kataoka and the invited speakers from abroad, and was chaired by PL Prof. Hiromichi Kimura. Discussion was enthusiastic and even extended to members of the audience, who joined on the spot.
This symposium was our last event in the 2014 fiscal year and was a great success, drawing a total of 231 participants. With the opening of iCONM, which is now a core COINS research center, it has given the COINS members renewed determination to progress R&D and persue the consequent social implementation.
