I have never received any requests from these organizers, furthermore, I have never accepted any such request. I ask the organizers for my name be removed from this event and not to use my name without my permission. I have already finished contacting the relevant organizations about this event.

Interactive Content Design

Yoshifumi Kitamura


Studies in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Interactive Content Design (ICD) help us understand, design, and develop tools and media that enrich our lives. Pursuing this work with ambitious people from diverse backgrounds provides a positive and productive workplace.


With the Internet-of-Things (IoT) everyday objects are becoming intelligent. As IoT expands, we are working to develop approaches that make a positive contribution to the world.


Understanding computational relationships between systems, spaces, humans, and their environments is an emerging area requiring increased research and development.


We see all artifacts, whether physical or digital, as content. Using human, spatial, and environmental perspectives, we explore interactions between content. Our ultimate goal is to formulate cohesive, holistic, and intuitive solutions supported by efficient communication.
