UV2016 STUDENTS’ FORUM

 The 3rd International Conference on Universal Village

 Date:October 7, 2016, 10:45-18:00

 Venue:Higashiyama Campus, Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan

 

Background: Universal Village (UV) is a new concept proposed by MIT Universal Village Program. The concept exemplifies a desired future society that protects environment/eco-system and addresses human needs in order to provide sustainable happiness to residents of the society. It is an expanded and advanced version of Smart Cities which pursues human-nature harmony through wise use of technologies. After great success in China (Beijing, UV2013) and Untied States (Boston, UV2014), the third Universal Village Conference will be held in Nagoya, Japan (UV2016), always aiming to call for collective effort across multi-disciplinary fields in order to develop a platform where researchers with different background can collaborate beyond the traditional boundaries. The Student Forum is another step in that direction, bringing together students from different research backgrounds  and countries, in order to kickstart early on the multidisciplinary connections needed for the concretization of a Universal Village.

 

Objectives:The theme for UV2016 is “Expand our horizon: UV for regions at different developing phases, and for people at different ages, with various technology & culture background.” The Students’ Forum aims to establish a platform for international students to exchange their research experience and vision with peers, to get constructive feedback from senior researchers, and collaborate beyond the boundaries of individual research fields. The forum is expected to invite students and student group leaders with different backgrounds to communicate and to share their vision on future community, environment and life styles.
