The 7th Hyperdisciplinarity Conference Main Conference Web site:https://hic.lne.st/conference/kanto2018/

We are now entering a "knowledge society" in which knowledge has the greatest value. It will be important for "everyone," not just "someone in particular," to be able to properly evaluate the information that abounds in the world and create new knowledge. What should we do to develop such skills, habits, and attitudes? We will discuss methods for individuals to understand "what knowledge is" and to be able to generate knowledge, using the results of "knowledge science" research and practical examples from the industrial world.

Advance registration is required to attend the lecture, so please register as soon as possible.

What is the Society for Transdisciplinary Research?
Since 2002, when RIVERNESS was founded, we have held an annual "Super Hetero-Disciplinary Exchange Meeting" where students and researchers participating in internship programs at RIVERNESS discuss their thoughts on their research and issues they wish to solve through their research. Since 2012, the conference has evolved into a "super interdisciplinary conference" with the participation of researchers from industry and academia, where discussions are held from a broader perspective.
Today, the meeting is held annually as a gathering of people from diverse fields and industries, ranging from junior high and high school students, researchers and engineers in academia (including engineers from local factories), people involved in venture companies, accelerators, and managers and business development personnel from large corporations.
