Number of participants 40

Main outcomes:

1. Collaboration of universities and local governments for enhancement of disaster resilient community

2. ICT-driven regional cyber-physical integrated society

3. Preparation of ICT systems and services in common

4. Emergency medical information system


* I got new ideas and new findings on socio-information system resilience by regional ICT, regional community resilience, IoT/M2M data-driven disaster information systems, etc.

* It was informative to meet many participants from various fields, medical,
nursing science, NGO, mathematical statistics, economics, communication
operators, food hygiene, etc. Another big result was a discussion on personal
information protection from viewpoint of medical doctors to design structures
utilizable in any scenes of self, mutual, and public help.

* The future problem from this workshop is collaboration of local government, university community, and local ICT/IoT industries to construct disaster-resistant local community for each of self, mutual, and public helps stages.



The workshop discusses on “Establishing Resilient Life-Space in the Cyber-Physical Integrated Society.” More than ten presentations focus on 1) Big Data Driven Systems for Smart Cyber-Physical Integrated Society, 2) In Common use of Information systems and services, and 3) Resilient Mobile Networks for Disaster Recovery, and some resilient networking systems are exhibited.
