After great success in China (Beijing, UV2013) and Untied States (Boston, UV2014), the third Universal Village Conference will be held in Nagoya, Japan (UV2016). Universal Village exemplifies a desired future society that pursues human-nature harmony through wise application of technologies. The concept is an expanded & advanced version of Smart Cities, and signifies that we follow the law of the universe, protect the environment and eco-systems, understand humans' need in depth, and innovate new lifestyles, thus providing sustainable happiness for humanity’s future.
What makes the International Conference on Universal Village unique is that it calls for collective effort across multi-disciplinary fields in order to develop a platform where researchers with different background can collaborate beyond the traditional boundaries of their individual research fields, and to find a systematic, coordinated, long-term solution for the future of human kind and mother nature.
