Title: MODELLING SWARM - INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS FOR MEDICAL APPLICATIONS
Modeling swarm intelligent systems has attracted attention of researchers over the last decade, as the attributes such as self-organization, self-regulation or collective behavior exhibited by the system entities while following a certain set of rules, can be implemented with the aim at investigating complexity of the problems that an individual would be unable to tackle in real world. Specifically, in the dynamically changing system environment, the process of group self-organization should gain the speed proportional to the precipitated new circumstances such as for instance a rapid danger of an attack. Mutually mirrored behaviors by the entities lead to making the new group decisions based on the experience gained from the past analogical or at least similar scenarios to the present one. By using such a strategy, the swarm - intelligent system undergoes self-regulation thorough the automatic feedback, which results in getting to the state of the plausible equilibrium by the model.
In medical informatics, the entities are represented by the patients, nurses, healthcare professionals, all of them forming the system classes of objects whose behavior follows the same rules. For the identified unique nosological entities, the same medical procedures apply, while the swarm intelligent system classes follow the same rules under the same circumstances creating the system environment – these arguments facilitate modeling of intelligent medical systems. Undoubtedly, no human can live without a healthcare which is at least one of the most significant arguments for modeling swarm - intelligent systems by implementing the behavioral mirroring and self – regulation as their attributes.
In this keynote speech, meta-heuristics and paradigms of modeling swarm-intelligent systems will be discussed with respect to their application areas for medical purposes.

Title: Less-Conscious Information Retrieval Techniques for Location Based Services
We have developed methods which can deal with the users' interaction without conventional conscious searching. When a user generally performs map operations with certain information retrieval intentions (less-conscious), a system using our method can detect the specific operation sequences. For example, if the user performs zooming-in and centering operations, the user is narrowing down the search area to a certain location. We define such operation sequences as chunks. The system detects the chunks and uses them to analyze the user's operations and thereby detect the user's intentions. We have developed several prototype systems based on the proposed methods.
Kazutoshi Sumiya received his BE and ME degrees in instrumentation engineering from Kobe University in 1986 and 1988, respectively. Then he joined Panasonic (Matsushita Electric Industrial Co). He received his Ph.D in Information media from Kobe University in 1998. He left the company and became a lecturer at Kobe University in 1999, and then was promoted to an associate professor in 2000. He became an associate professor in 2001 at Kyoto University, a professor at the University of Hyogo in 2004 and a professor at Kwansei Gakuin University in 2015. He developed information dissemination systems and fusion technique for broadcast media and network media. He is developing next-generation information techniques. He was a chair of Database System special interest group (DBS) in the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ) and a co-editor of IPSJ Transaction on Database. He is a director of IPSJ.

Title: Advancing in Technical Leadership
Today’s technology companies require leadership with both the technical and management aspects of engineering. Technical leadersare needed with many functions within a company environment and they are critical to company growth and to making management decisions leading to success. This discussion examines a typical path to leadership roles in companies, criteria and recommendations to move up the ladder. We then examines some case studies where expanding technical leadership beyond the traditional research and architecture teams has had a major impact on company success.
