Brief Bio
Dr. Yasushi Kambayashi is an associate professor in the Department of Computer and Information Engineering from the Nippon Institute of Technology. He worked at Mitsubishi Research Institute as a staff researcher before joining the Institute. His research interests include theory of computation, theory and practice of programming languages, and political science. He received his PhD in Engineering from the University of Toledo, his MS in Computer Science from the University of Washington, and his BA in Law from Keio University. He is a committee member of the Japan Information-Technology Engineers Examination, a Fellow of IARIA, a committee member and the industry research chair of IARIA International Multi-Conference on Computing in the Global Information Technology and IARIA International Conference on Advances in P2P Systems, a committee member of Asia Pacific Symposium on Intelligent and Evolutionary Systems, an editorial board member of International Journal on Advances in Internet Technology, a review committee member of Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications, and a member of ACM, IEEE Computer Society, Tau Beta Pi, IPSJ, JSSST, IEICE System Society, IADIS, and Japan Flutist Association.


Today, we are witnessing the advent of ubiquitous computing. Computers are not special machines, they are common apparatus.  Ubiquitous computers naturally lead parallel and distributed computations.  We would like to investigate effective domain specific parallelization and distribution solutions for many applications in various levels.  The solutions include the design of parallel models inspired from cell signal processing or social insects.  Through this session, we would like to foster any inspirations for designing and developing novel computational applications based on parallel and distributed systems especially agent technologies.  We believe that the challenges of this session will open new horizons for distributed and multi-agent systems.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Design, Implementation and Evaluation of Agents and Multi-agent Systems
  • Software Visualization for Multi-agents
  • Data Mining
  • Parallelizing and Distributing Techniques Including Support Tools and Environments
  • Programming Languages for Parallel and Distributed Computation
  • Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
  • Network Protocols for Distributed and Multi-agent Systems
  • Computational Models based on Cell Signal Processing or Social Insects
  • Any other Kinds of Agent Based Human Supportive Technologies
