Event description

Description

As part of a continuing series of cooperative events scheduled between the University of Chicago and the University of Tokyo, the Second International Interdisciplinary Faculty Forum will be held on March 12, 2018 in Chicago. Leading scholars from both universities working in physics, medicine, computer science, the social sciences, and the humanities will present on their recent work as related to the central topic of “Big Data”. Each discussion will also be opened to all participants to explore the range and possibilities of the topic at hand. The goal of this event is to develop a truly international and interdisciplinary set of conversations which will inspire further research and cooperation.

PROGRAM SCHEDULE COMING SOON

This forum is co-coordinated by Professors James Ketelaar and Mark Ratain, M.D., of the University of Chicago and Professors Zhong Yijiang, Nakajima Takahiro and Kurokawa Mineo of the University of Tokyo.

Generous support by UChicago Global, the Committee on Japanese Studies at the Center for East Asian Studies of the University of Chicago, and the Division of International Affairs of the University of Tokyo has made this event possible. A special thanks to Mr. Kurachi Soichiro, President, Nihon Cornstarch Corporation, for his many generous contributions to cooperative international studies.
