Field is defined here as “a spatio-temporal area that is difficult to grasp via any analytical and/or engineering approach due to the co-existence of various individuals and entities, which results in the unexpected occurrence of seemingly accidental events thus necessitating our continuing commitment and caring. (Osamu Katai)” Field based design aims to discover problems arising in various fields, and to provide solutions to those problems.
Inter-university Symposium on Field Based Design aims to establish an academic community on design methodologies applicable to various fields. To this end, we collaborate with design oriented activities in different universities to exchange education and research experience. Each time, we jointly organize a symposium with one university mainly located in Asia. This time, we invite a team headed by Professor Jiming Liu of Hong Kong Baptist University, where excellent works in modeling and simulation are ongoing.
