The Shizuoka University of Art and Culture is a university in Hamamatsu, in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Its mission is to foster the exchange of ideas between the fields of cultural studies and design by having the two combined at one relatively small institution. It is one of Japan's newest universities, established in December 1999 and enrolling its first class in April 2000. SUAC hosted NIME-04, the 4th International Conference on New interfaces for musical expression in June, 2004. The conference featured public invited lectures by synthesizer pioneer Bob Moog and media artist Toshio Iwai.The university has two faculties, the Faculty of Cultural Policy and Management and the Faculty of Design. Within the Faculty of Cultural Policy and Management there are departments of International Culture, Regional Cultural Policy and Management, and Art Management. Within the Faculty of Design there are departments of Industrial Design, Art and Science, and Space and Architecture.The campus's architecture is somewhat unique, dominated by large undulating rooftops, one of which is topped with a roof garden.The university has reciprocal relationships with Hoseo University in South Korea, the Shanghai University of Engineering science in China, the University of Wales in Wales, and the University of Findlay in the United States.

This report discusses difficulties in mail-order service, as well as the effects of its introduction, in long-established companies. While previous studies only discussed the merits of e-business, it has surfaced with the progress of research that many companies hesitate to actively introduce mail-order service despite the resulting sales growth. They mentioned as the biggest cause of their hesitation that it would require more employees and make operations complicated. For instance, a long-established sake brewer, which offers mail-order service, deals with a flood of online orders with all employees mobilized on such occasions as Father's Day and toward the year end. A long-standing souvenir shop in Hokkaido, which sells local specialties of Hokkaido through mail-order service, is not active in the service as having trouble in handling orders, despite a 20% sales growth from the mail-order service. These issues will also be discussed. © 2015 IEEE. Source

This 3D optical metrology has become a standard tool in industrial process chains by providing fast and precise full-field 3D data for quality control, rapid manufacturing and reverse engineering applications. In this report, the trend that 3D optical metrology has widely used by the product development is described. Concretely, it is described to inspect shape on the free-form surface, to digitize the design model, to manufacture solid shape without CAD model, to define CAE model from real shape, to make analysis for sheet metal components, and to make real-time strain measurement for tensile tests. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

It was the mid-1980s when Japan was told that it will become a highly aged society in the years to come. To cope with the rapid change, a research and development project was conducted with government funding, followed by policy implementation of several kinds, in particular the proposal of dwelling design concepts acceptable in people's later years. The paper attempts to report progress, and discusses the remaining issues to be resolved to bring about an inclusive society. © 2010 Taylor & Francis. Source

This is a studio report of student projects at SUAC (Shizuoka University of Art and Culture) in Hamamatsu Japan. SUAC was founded in April 2000, and hosted NIME04. All students in the Faculty of Design, Department of Art and Science are studying computer sound, interaction and media arts. SUAC organized the Media Art Festival (MAF) from 2001 to 2010, and many student's works have been created - live performances, installations and interactive contents - Flash, Web, Game, etc. In this paper, I will report on four recent student projects - two live performances and two sound installations created 2010-2012.
