Session Title: OS1: Emergency Wired/Wireless Communication Systems on Disaster
Session Organisers: Takuro Sato, Hiroshi Tamura
Target audience: Academician, business person, national and local administrative persons
Objectives of the session: Natural or man-made disasters have posed a great challenge to human society of the world. Recently, frequently-seen disasters are earthquake, volcano eruption, tsunami, typhoon and rain flooding. Robustness against the above disasters should be considered in the design of communication network systems. But actually, after such a disaster happens, network congestion is usually found to be serious. Examples in history are like Kobe earthquake in 1995, the g911h attack in New York and Higashi Nippon earthquake in March 2011, the heavy use of phone call by general population caused sudden and serious congestion in phone system. In normal circumstances, the current communication infrastructures are sufficient for the resource demand of daily traffic of calls. But after a disaster happens, two things will change: first is that most of people within the affected area will try to make calls to family or friends immediately; and second is that part of the infrastructure may suffer from damage. To overcome these two issues, this session was organized under JSST. In the session, we need talk about robust wired/ wireless communications systems against disasters.

Session Title: OS2: Advanced Computer Simulation for Biomolecules and Nano Materials
Session Organisers: Yoshinobu Naoshima, Koji Sueoka, Fumitoshi Sato
Target audience: Researchers engaged in bio and nano simulation and experimental chemists and biochemists dealing with proteins and nano materials
Objectives of the session: Recently, computational simulations have become attractive as a useful means for investigating the structures and functions of bio and nano materials. The combination of increased computer processing power with advanced computational chemistry software has allowed not only specialists but non-specialists, such as experimental chemists and biochemists, to carry out simulations of biologically important large molecules and nano materials. The purpose of this organized session is to present some papers concerning bio and nano computation with molecular dynamics methods and quantum chemical methods and to exchange ideas and information associated with the computations. This session also aims to share a common interest in the fields of bio and nano simulation with computational researchers from Japan and abroad. We sincerely hope that researchers in various related fields enjoy our simulation session through talks and presentations.

Session Title: OS3: Nano-Embedded Device and System Design
Session Organisers: Preecha P. Yupapin, Somsak Mitatha, Yusaku Fujii
Target audience: Engineers, scientists, students
Objectives of the session: Embedded device is become the interesting tool for many applications, in which the merging between light and semiconductor device can be involved in various applications. The use of such device has been reported in many areas, for instance, the use of E/O (electrical/optical) and O/E (optical/electrical) signal converters, optical signal processing, optical sensor, optical communication and medicine has been investigated and realized. More interesting applications have been appeared, especially, when the device dimension is reached the micro/nano scale regime, in which many aspects of investigation become the challenge. This session is open for wide range of application in the simulation and design, the areas are included for such as: Nano, communication, Embedded device, Nanosensor, Nanoelectronics, Nano-optics, Nanomedicine , Nano Device for Energy, etc.

Session Title: OS4: Influence Quantities in the Calibration of a Hydraulic Dead Weight Tester
Session Organisers: Chatchaval Pornpatkul, Satean Tanyasrirat
Target audience: Researchers, engineers, students, etc
Objectives of the session: For study Influence quantities in the calibration of a hydraulic dead weight tester when calibrated by direct comparison with PTWIT's Standard Hydraulic Pressure Balance according to EA-10/03: Calibration of Pressure Balance, edition 1/July 1997. The concrete list of objectives are: (1) Determine the effective area, (2) Determine the pressure distortion coefficient, (3) Determine the piston fall rate, (4) Determine the true mass, density and uncertainty of the weights, (5) Determine the associate pressure values of the weights , (6) Determine the expanded uncertainty of measurement.

Session Title: OS5: Simulation Techniques of Electromagnetic Fields Analysis
Session Organisers: Hikaru Samukawa
Target audience: Researchers, engineers, students, teachers
Objectives of the session: Recently Electro-Magnetic field analysis has boosted its importance due to requirements of accurate simulation to design especially rotating machineries and high-frequency electronic devices. In this session, we are looking forward the state of the arts presentations on EM field analysis based on broad range algorithms such as FDTD, MoM, BEM, FEM, and etc. covering from fundamental theory to the forefront applications.

Session Title: OS6: Numerical Simulation and Visualization of Nonlinear Problems
Session Organisers: Atsushi Kamitani, Satoshi Tanaka, Koji Koyamada
Target audience: Researchers and engineers that have a special interest in numerical simulation and visualization of nonlinear problems
Objectives of the session: Both the numerical simulation and the visualization have played an important role in the analysis of nonlinear problems arising in a wide variety of fields in science and engineering. For example, in solid-state physics and fusion engineering, a number of high-performance numerical techniques have been proposed for solving nonlinear partial differential equations and they have contributed to the remarkable development of these fields. Moreover, visualization of complicated/large-sized data is indispensable for the analysis of the results obtained in numerical simulations. In this sense, the numerical simulation and the visualization should work closely together in the analysis of nonlinear problems. The aim of this organized session is to provide a forum for exchanging ideas and discussing recent developments in the numerical simulation and the visualization of nonlinear problems.

Session Title: OS7: Information Visualization in Immersive Virtual Environment
Session Organisers: Kazuhiko Hamamoto, Shunji Ido
Target audience: Audience who is interested in visualization and virtual reality, especially in immersive virtual environment
Objectives of the session: 3D environment is being so popular now. Furthermore, immersive virtual environment (IVE) will be popular near future. Actually, IVE has been already used in various research fields and partly applied in practical use. This session aims to introduce some activities of Japanese institutions' IVE and discuss how to use IVE and its possibilities for research or industry application. This session consists of 2 parts. One is a part of introduction of IVE and its activity (no review part). The other is a part of novel research discussion (review part) which includes demonstration using HoloStageTM, which is one of the largest IVE all over the world, in Tokai Takanawa Campus. This organized session will be provided as "CAVE Kenkyu Group Meeting", which is supported by Saitama Institute of Technology and Cybernet systems Co., Ltd.
