A Collection of Keynote Addresses Ver. 1.0 The 2nd International Conference for Universal Design in KYOTO 2006

2009.08.04 Updated


Let us introduce you the CD-ROM version of the remarkable collective addresses at the 2nd International Conference for Universal Design in KYOTO 2006.

We have just finished editing the keynote addresses as well as panel discussions all spoken at the above Conference held in October 2006.
Total 36 messages were delivered by prominent speakers who expressed their latest and valuable thinkings and practices on universal design for generating the promising future.
The texts were edited both in English and Japanese languages.

This kind of CD-ROM has for a long time been desired earnestly by the Conference participants and also by the people who could not actually attend.
We are confident that this medium will lead the idea of UD to the up-coming 3rd International Conference for UD which will be held in Shizuoka in 2010.
