International Workshop on
“Symbiosis of Science & Technology with
Human, Society & Environment”
This International Workshop on “Symbiosis of Science & Technology with Human, Society & Environment” （IWS-SYMBIO) is a special program at “The 1st International Symposium of Kyoto University Global COE Program: Energy Science in the Age of Global Warming- Toward CO2 Zero-emission (ZERO-CARBON ENERGY Kyoto 2009), August 20-22, 2009，Kyoto University, Kyoto City, Japan”.
The title of the workshop, “Symbiosis of Science & Technology with Human, Society &
Environment” itself represents the reality regarding the relation of Science & Technology to Human, Society & Environment today, and the Global Warming may be ascribed to this issue.
In this IWS-SYMBIO, “Symbiosis of Science & Technology with Human, Society & Environment” will be discussed by the collaboration of system scientists and psychologists on why to re-consider and how to re-design more anthropocentric way than by many diversified ways. The subjects to be dealt in the workshop will be the design, analysis and evaluation of the three selected issues of (i) intelligent machine, (ii) value-added automation, and (iii) learning organizations, from the common aspect of “human symbiosis with technologies in future”.
