Challenge of the future IT for health care
Tuesday, October 2, 10:00-10:45

In 2009, the Internet was the most important innovation according to the business survey with Wharton to determine which 30 innovations have changed life most dramatically during the past 30 years. PC/laptop computers ranked second and mobile phones ranked third. Next, e-mail ranked fourth. Smart phone is the most recent mobile device revolution created by combining the innovations ranked first to fourth. What happen if smart phone is combined with innovations in health care? By combining innovations in IT and health care, medical service providers have protected patients and improved medical systems more effectively. Tablet PC or smart phone providing recent medical information becomes a "must-have item" like a stethoscope. Also, application programs to help healthcare management, to transfer healthcare information between biomedical devices and to provide various healthcare services become very important elements in addition to medical devices to check DNA and temperature of patients. This keynote speech forecasts the future of healthcare IT by discussing about diagnosis by image sensor, secure local communication for data transfer and display technology to exchange information between devices and patients.

Organic LEDs for General Lighting
Wednesday, October 3, 12:00-13:00

The performance of white-light-emitting OLEDs have been steadily improved and, today, they are considered to be the light source of the next generation. High quantum efficiencies can be obtained by using phosphorescent emitters such as iridium complexes. External quantum efficiency (QE) of 25-30% was achieved for blue, green and red OLEDs, which correspond to the internal QE of nearly 100%. Device lifetime has been significantly improved by using the multiphoton structure. By combining the above techniques, OLEDs can be extremely efficient and possess extremely long lifetime. Lumiotec corp. has started small-scale production of white OLED panels in the early 2011 and Panasonic Electric Works also started in the late 2011. Luminaires using high performance white OLEDs have been developed and finally became commercially available.

Prof. Junji Kido Dr. Junji Kido
Department of Organic Device Engineering, Yamagata University

Prof. Kido has received his B.S. degree from Waseda University, Japan, in 1984 and the M.S. and Ph. D. degrees from Polytechnic University, New York, in 1987 and 1989, respectively. In 1989, he joined the department of polymer chemistry in Yamagata University in Japan as an assistant professor and promoted to an associate professor in 1995, and to a full professor in 2002. He became a distinguished research professor in 2011. His current research activities are focused on OLEDs. He invented white-light-emitting OLEDs in 1993, and co-founded "Lumiotec Inc." to manufacture white OLED panels for general lighting applications.
